What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Gainesville Budget rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my car rental in Gainesville?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Gainesville's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Gainesville is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Gainesville?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Gainesville. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Gainesville getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Gainesville. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Gainesville has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Gainesville.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Gainesville?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
