Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Grand Rapids Budget rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car well 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 do I need have with me when I pick up my car in Grand Rapids?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Grand Rapids's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Grand Rapids is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Grand Rapids?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Grand Rapids. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Grand Rapids getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you 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 MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car 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 also book 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 book your vehicle for your trip to Grand Rapids. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Grand Rapids has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Michigan has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Grand Rapids.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Grand Rapids?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
