Frequently Asked Questions
How is the 24-hour period calculated?
Rates are calculated on a 24-hour period from the time you sign the rental contract until the return of the vehicle. We do allow a 29 minute "grace period" on the final day of return as a gesture of goodwill.
When is there no charge for fuel?
There is no charge for re-fuelling when the car is brought back to the Budget branch with a full tank.
What are the charges regarding delivery and collection fees?
What are the minimum requirements when renting from Budget?
How is the exchange rate calculated?
The exchange rate is applied at the time of return of the vehicle at foreign destinations.
How do I extend my car rental booking?
In the event that you need your car longer that you had initially booked it, you must call the rental office where the rental originated to organise an extension. A Rental Sales Agent will explain the terms of the extension to you, once agreed to; the rental will be extended over the telephone. N.B. Keeping the rented car longer than the initial/agreed reservation length may result in an Overdue Rental Administration Fee.
