Frequently asked questions

We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Des Moines?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Des Moines's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Des Moines is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Des Moines?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Des Moines. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Des Moines average 28 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Des Moines getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Des Moines. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Des Moines has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Iowa has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Des Moines.

Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Budget. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
