Budget Car Rentals in Elmhurst: What you need to know

There are so many neighborhoods in Chicago that are worth exploring, you'll wish for your own automobile to check out everything there is to do here. Public transportation, while affordable, may not drive you to exactly where you want to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but you may be surprised by which areas they don't serve. Plus, if you plan to go all over Elmhurst and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town at an affordable price, then you are in the right place. CarRentals.com works with several of the most dependable companies in the industry. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the cheapest price. Open for business in Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best rates for its customers.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best deals on an Elmhurst Budget car rental?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price. But, to get the most savings on your tip to Elmhurst by doing a few things:

  • Compare vehicle pricing before you book
  • Try to avoid pick-ups and drop-offs at airports, which usually are more expensive
  • Determine ahead of time how much mileage/fuel you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

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

What documents do I need when I pick up my car rental in Elmhurst?

You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Elmhurst?

Most suppliers, like Budget, require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. However, there might be an additional fee if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular. Read over Budget's to determine any additional charges will be before you book your rental

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Elmhurst. If you are having difficulty picking the right car, be sure to read over our table below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

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

The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase interim coverage with the Budget. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some insurance on your rental; however, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check Budget's policy before you decide.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?

Budget, like many other rental agencies, requires a deposit when you book. The amount can vary greatly based on which vehicle you book. Also, make sure you have enough on your credit card to make the deposit.

What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?

Budget and most other rental car companies give you a full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we recommend returning it with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before returning the vehicle to Budget.

Can I get unlimited mileage when booking a car in Elmhurst?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of the bundle. It's useful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may want unlimited miles if you're pondering some road trips to see all that Chicago has to offer, or even the U.S. of A.

Anything I should make sure to do around Elmhurst?

Once you've checked out Elmhurst, you'll be happy that you have your own car. Not sure where to start your trip? If you have a set of clubs, it may be worthwhile to pack them. Head to River Forest Country Club for day on the greens.
