Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Townsville Budget rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. 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 Townsville?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Townsville's minimum age to rent a car?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21. Take time to read through Budget's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Townsville?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Townsville. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Townsville vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Australia. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Townsville. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. 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 or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Townsville?
Townsville certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?
Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Budget. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
