Budget Car Rentals in Highland Park: What you need to know

There are so many neighborhoods in Chicago that are worth exploring, you'll wish for an automobile to check out everything there is to do around the area. The city buses, while cheap, may not take you to precisely where you want to go. Ridesharing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but small towns may not have timely service. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Highland Park and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the easiest way to get around town for a good price, then you've found the best spot. CarRentals.com works with many of the most dependable companies. With a name like Budget, you know they will try to get you the lowest rate. Started in Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always attempts to provide the best prices for their customers.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

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

We always strives to get you the best rate. Nevertheless, to get the most savings on your tip to Highland Park by doing a few things:

  • Compare the prices of vehicles
  • Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which typically are more expensive
  • Determine ahead of time how much fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve in advance

A little knowledge can go a long way to lower your price.

What documents do I need when I pick up my car in Highland Park?

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 Highland Park?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure 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?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Highland Park. If you are having trouble deciding, make sure to read over our chart below. We have compared the most popular categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
PremiumWhen you feel like you deserve the bestMercedes C-Class, Cadillac XTS, or similar
Minivan or SUVFamily getaways where you need additional roomToyota Rav 4, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar
Economy CarWhen saving money is a top priorityChevrolet Spark, Vauxhall Corsa, or similar

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?

When cruising through Highland Park or the rest of the United States, you'll need insurance. Budget requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage with Budget. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check Budget's policy before you decide.

Do I need to put down a deposit on my Budget rental car?

Budget, like many other rental companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The deposit can vary greatly based on the type of vehicle. Furthermore, be sure there is enough funds on your credit card to put down a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?

We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental to Budget.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Highland Park?

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it is part of your package that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, you could face additional cost. You may need unlimited miles if you are thinking of taking some road trips to explore all that Chicago has to offer, or even the U.S. of A.
