Budget Car Rentals in Gelsenkirchen: What you need to know

Gelsenkirchen is just one of many neighborhoods in Essen that are worth exploring, and, you'll wish for an automobile to check out everything there is to do here. The city buses, while inexpensive, may not take you to right where you want to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but you may be surprised by which places they don't serve. Plus, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want convenience at a fantastic price, then you're in the right place. We work with several of the best car rental companies. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the lowest price. Founded during 1958 in Los Angeles, Budget always works to provide the best rates for its customers.

Frequently asked questions

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

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best price. Nevertheless, you can remember a couple things to keep your upcoming booking affordable:

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

A bit of knowledge goes a long way to increase your savings.

Which forms of identification should I bring when I get my car rental in Gelsenkirchen?

You'll need to bring your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 18. Take time to go over Budget's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.

What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Gelsenkirchen. If you are having trouble picking the right car, make sure to read over our table below. We have compared the most popular categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
Full Size SUVTo take on any kind of terrain and enjoy great viewsBMW X3, Ford Edge, or similar
Full SizeFamilies with suitcases and a need for spaceHyundai Sonata, Ford Fusion, or similar
HybridThose looking for a fuel-efficient vehicleBMW i3, Toyota Prius, or similar

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?

When driving in Gelsenkirchen or the rest of country, 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 interim insurance with Budget.

Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check Budget's policy before you decide.

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 amount can vary greatly based on which vehicle you reserve. Also, be sure there is enough on your credit card to pay a deposit.

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

Budget and most other suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we advise returning your car topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Gelsenkirchen?

Many suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of the bundle. It's helpful to determine how many miles you will be driving on your trip to Gelsenkirchen. You don't want to be surprised with any additional fees if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure you go through the supplier's policy. You may want to have unlimited miles if you are thinking of some road trips to see everything that Essen has to offer, or even Germany.
