Budget Car Rentals in East Lansing: What you need to know

With so many neighborhoods in Lansing, such as East Lansing, worth exploring, you'll want your own automobile to check out everything there is to do in this city. Public transportation, while affordable, may not drop you off exactly where you need to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but you'd be surprised by which places don't have service. Additionally, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town at a great rate, then you've found the perfect spot. We work with some of the top rental car businesses. Open for business during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best rates for its customers. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest price.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best deals on an East Lansing Budget car rental?

You are well on your way to locating the best rate on your car rental by going through CarRentals.com. However, there are ways to get an even cheaper price on your next rental:

  • Compare the prices of vehicles
  • Avoid pick-ups or drop-offs at airports, which usually are more expensive
  • Determine ahead of time how much fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

A little knowledge can go a long way to more savings.

What should I have with me when I get my car rental in East Lansing?

Be sure to carry with you your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the minimum age to rent a car?

Most suppliers, like Budget, set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. However, there might be an additional charge if you are under 25 or for larger or higher category rentals in particular. Read through Budget's to determine what the exact fee is before you book your vehicle

Is there a particular vehicle I should rent for my trip to East Lansing?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in East Lansing. If you are having difficulty picking the right car, be sure to go over the table below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
Full Size SUVTo take on any kind of terrain and sightseeingBMW X3, Ford Edge, or similar
Full SizeFamilies with luggage and a need for spaceChevrolet Impala, Toyota Camry , or similar
HybridThose that want to get the most miles per gallon on their tripHonda Civic, Kia Optima, or similar

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the U.S.A.?

Most countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance with the Budget. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Most credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) will cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Lansing.

Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Budget, like many other rental companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly based on the type of automobile. Furthermore, make sure you have enough on your credit card to make a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?

Budget and most other suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing it back filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a gas station before returning the car rental to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Can I add unlimited mileage when renting a car in East Lansing?

The majority of suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's important to determine how much driving you will be doing in and around East Lansing. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure you understand the company's policy. You may need to have unlimited miles if you're thinking of some road trips to explore what else is in Lansing.

What is there to do around East Lansing?

Once you've explored East Lansing, you'll be happy that you have your own car. If you like to trade in your car rental for a golf cart when you are on holiday, then you have come to the right place. There are three golf courses in Lansing. Want to work on your drives? Check out:
