Budget Car Rentals in Emeryville: What you need to know

With plenty of neighborhoods in Oakland, such as Emeryville, worth exploring, you will wish for your own vehicle to check out all there is to do around the area. Public transportation, while inexpensive, may not take you to exactly where you need to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but smaller towns may not have timely service. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Emeryville and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town for an affordable rate, then you have found the right spot. We work with some of the best car rental businesses in the world. With a name like Budget, you know this company will try to get you the lowest price. Started during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always works to provide the best prices for customers.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

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

We always strives to get you the best price. Nonetheless, there are ways to get an even lower price on your next rental:

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

A little knowledge goes a long way to increase your savings.

What should I carry with me when I pick up my rental car in Emeryville?

Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What is 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. Take time to review Budget's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.

Is there a particular car I should rent for my trip to Emeryville?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Emeryville. If you are having trouble choosing, make sure to read over the chart below. We have compared the most popular types of cars for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
LuxuryWhen you feel like you need the bestCadillac XTS, Camaro, or similar
Minivan or SUVFamily trips where you need the extra roomChrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar
Economy or Compact CarCouple or two friends who plan on doing a bit of sightseeingFiat 500, Nissan Versa Note, or similar

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

When cruising through Emeryville or the rest of the U.S. of A., you will need insurance. Budget requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through Budget for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

The major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Oakland.

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

Budget, like many other rental agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly depending on the size of the car. Additionally, make sure you have enough funds on your credit card to cover the deposit.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

Budget and most other rental car suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We advise bringing it back topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Emeryville?

Most suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of the bundle. It's helpful to consider how much driving you will be doing in and around Emeryville. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so be certain you understand the company's policy. You may need unlimited miles if you're thinking of some road trips to see what else Oakland has to offer, or even the United States.
