Budget Car Rentals in Spring: What you need to know
There are so many neighborhoods in Houston that are worth exploring, you will want a car to check out all there is to do in this city. Public transportation, while cheap, may not take you to right where you need to go. Ride hailing is convenient, but you may be surprised by which areas don't have service. Plus, if you plan to go all over Spring and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.
If you want the simplest way to get around town at an affordable rate, then you're in the right place. CarRentals.com works with several of the top rental car companies. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the cheapest price. Founded in Los Angeles, California, around 1958, Budget always strives to provide the best rates for their customers.
Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Spring Budget car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best rate. Nonetheless, you can do a couple things to keep your upcoming rental affordable:
- Compare the prices of vehicles
- Try to avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which can be more expensive
- Know ahead of time how much mileage/fuel you may use
- Search and reserve as far in advance as you can
A bit of knowledge goes a long way to more savings.
What documents do I need when I get my car in Spring?
Make sure to carry with you your credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Spring?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (premium, full-size SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Budget's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should book for my trip?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Spring. If you are having a little trouble picking the right car, make sure to look over our table below. We've compared the most popular types of cars for you:
|Car Type||Best for||Category includes|

|Hybrid||Those looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle||Toyota Prius, Honda Civic, or similar|
Does the U.S.A. require car insurance?
When driving in Spring or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Budget requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase additional insurance through Budget, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Although many major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you reserve a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check Budget's policy before you decide.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
Budget, like several other rental car companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly depending on the size of the car. Also, be sure you have enough on your credit card to make the deposit.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, fill up your tank before returning the vehicle to Budget. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles in Spring?
Many suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to make sure it's part of your package that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you are planning to find out everything that Houston has to offer, or even the United States.
