Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Richmond Budget rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Richmond?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Richmond's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Richmond is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Budget rental car should I get for my trip to Richmond?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Richmond. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Richmond trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Richmond. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return your 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 fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back 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 Richmond?
Richmond has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive 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 checked off all the activities in Richmond.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Budget. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
