Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best deals on a Riverside Budget car rental?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting ahead of time 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 surprise fees.

What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Riverside?

Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's the minimum age to rent a car in Riverside?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Riverside is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.

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

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Riverside. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Riverside 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 go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Riverside trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

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 or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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 United States 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 car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.

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

We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Riverside?

Riverside has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Riverside. If you are looking to add a little fun to your Riverside trip, you can also drive to Castle Park and enjoy an afternoon taking on the park's attractions.

Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Riverside?

Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
