What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on a Tacoma Budget rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Tacoma?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Tacoma?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Tacoma is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Tacoma?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Tacoma. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. Commute times in Tacoma average 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Tacoma getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, 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 Tacoma. Otherwise, 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 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 Tacoma. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Budget car rental?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Tacoma?
Tacoma has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Washington has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Tacoma.
Does Tacoma Budget offer one-way car rentals?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
