What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Norfolk?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Norfolk's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Norfolk is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Norfolk?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Norfolk. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Norfolk are close to 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Norfolk vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Budget in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Norfolk has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Virginia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've had an evening out in Norfolk's downtown or gone out downtown.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
