What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Salem Budget car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Salem?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Salem?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Salem is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Salem?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Salem. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Salem average 30 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Salem trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, 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 Salem. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase 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. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Salem has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Oregon has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Salem.
Does Salem Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Budget. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
