Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a State College Budget car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in State College?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in State College?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in State College is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to State College?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit State College. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their State College trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS 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. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large 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 State College. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Budget car rental?
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 to State College. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in State College?
State College's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in State College.
Does State College Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
