Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Mackay Budget rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Mackay?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Mackay's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Mackay is 21. Make sure to check Budget's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Mackay?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Mackay. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Mackay vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in Australia. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Mackay. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on 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 book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Mackay. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Mackay?
Mackay definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Mackay.
Does Mackay Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Budget. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
