Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Melbourne Budget rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But getting well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Melbourne?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Melbourne?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Melbourne. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Melbourne vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Melbourne. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
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. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Melbourne?
Melbourne has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've gone out downtown or gone out downtown. If you want to add a little excitement to your Melbourne trip, you can also go to Andretti Thrill Park and enjoy a day taking on the park's attractions.
Does Melbourne Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
