Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Gilroy Budget car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I get my car rental in Gilroy?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Gilroy?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Gilroy is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Budget's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Gilroy?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Gilroy. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Gilroy are close to 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Gilroy getaway can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 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 a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give 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. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase 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 Gilroy. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending 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 advise 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Gilroy?
Gilroy's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Gilroy. If you are wishing to add a dash adventure to your Gilroy trip, you can also drive to Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park and enjoy a night riding the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Budget. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
