What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Kourou Budget car rental?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Kourou?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Kourou?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Kourou is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Kourou?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kourou. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Kourou trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in French Guiana?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in French Guiana. 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 luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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 car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Kourou. Please note that the deposit may 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 advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Kourou?
Kourou certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Kourou.
