Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Hamilton Budget car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be 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 get my rental car in Hamilton?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Hamilton's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Hamilton is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Budget's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Hamilton?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hamilton. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Hamilton getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does New Zealand require car insurance?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Hamilton. Additionally, as a United States 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 book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Hamilton. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Hamilton?
Hamilton definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Hamilton?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
