Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Olympic Dam?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Olympic Dam?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Olympic Dam is 21. Take time to go over Budget's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Olympic Dam?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Olympic Dam. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Olympic Dam vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Olympic Dam. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Olympic Dam certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Olympic Dam.
