Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I get a Durham Budget car rental at a great price?

You are on your way to getting the best price on your car rental when you use CarRentals.com. But, to make sure you get the most savings on your tip to Durham by doing a few things:

  • Read through the mileage policy to avoid any surprises
  • Book your car rental as far in advance as you can
  • Avoid airport pick-ups or drop-offs if possible; they tend to be pricier
  • Compare daily and weekly rates; you may save more if you rent the car for longer

A bit of knowledge can go a long way to lower your price.

Which forms of identification do I need when I get my car rental in Durham?

Make sure to present your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's the minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

When cruising through Durham or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Budget requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary insurance with Budget. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?

Budget and most other rental car companies give you a full to full tank policy. We suggest returning the car filled up. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the vehicle to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Durham?

The majority of suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your package that you are purchasing. It's helpful to consider how many miles you will be driving ahead of time on your trip. You don't want to be surprised with any overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so make certain you read the supplier's policy.
