Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Fort Smith Budget rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my vehicle in Fort Smith?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Fort Smith's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Fort Smith is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Fort Smith?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Fort Smith. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Fort Smith average 31 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Fort Smith trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Fort Smith. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Fort Smith. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Fort Smith?
Fort Smith has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Arkansas has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've gone out in Fort Smith's downtown or checked off all the activities in Fort Smith.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
