Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Petaluma Budget car rental at a great price?

We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Petaluma?

Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Petaluma?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Petaluma is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), 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 for you.

What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Petaluma?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Petaluma. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Petaluma are around 29 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Petaluma trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?

You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Petaluma. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Petaluma. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile 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.

Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Petaluma?

Petaluma's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Petaluma.
