Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Santa Ana Budget car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Santa Ana?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Santa Ana's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Santa Ana is 21. Take time to review Budget's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Santa Ana?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Santa Ana. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Santa Ana getaway can choose the premium category to get 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, 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 book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, 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 Santa Ana?
Santa Ana has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see 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 Santa Ana.
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 vehicle at a different Budget. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
