What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Thousand Oaks?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Thousand Oaks's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Thousand Oaks is 21. Take time to check Budget's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Thousand Oaks?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Thousand Oaks. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Thousand Oaks average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Thousand Oaks vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Budget. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase 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 reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Thousand Oaks. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending 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 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 to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Budget.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Thousand Oaks has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Thousand Oaks.

Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another Budget. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
