Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on an Istanbul Budget rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Istanbul?
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Istanbul's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Istanbul is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Istanbul?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Istanbul. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Istanbul getaway 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 Turkey?
In Turkey you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
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. Please be aware 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?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Istanbul?
Istanbul definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Istanbul.
Does Istanbul Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Budget. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
