What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best rates on a Galveston Budget rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Galveston?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Galveston's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Galveston is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Galveston?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Galveston. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Galveston trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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 book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Galveston. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle 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 the car back 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 Galveston?
Galveston's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Galveston. If you want to add even more entertainment to your Galveston getaway, you can head to one of the two theme parks in the area. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the clan to Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier or Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
