Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best rates on a San Rafael Budget car rental?

We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in San Rafael?

Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's San Rafael's minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in San Rafael is 21. Take time to go over Budget's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.

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

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in San Rafael. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. If you are looking to enjoy San Rafael's coast, then you can opt for a convertible to enjoy some top-down driving.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

You are required to have insurance before you rent from Budget in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger 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 San Rafael. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

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

Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to San Rafael. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.

What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

San Rafael's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've spent a day at the beach or explored the shore.

Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
