Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Heidelberg Budget car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Heidelberg?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Heidelberg's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Heidelberg is 21. Take time to read through Budget's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Heidelberg?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Heidelberg. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Heidelberg vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile 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 the car back to Budget.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Heidelberg?
Heidelberg certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Heidelberg.
Does Heidelberg Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
