Brindisi Airport handles around one million passengers per year, and is also well known as Brindisi Papola Casale Airport, or Aeroporto del Salento, as it is located in these areas. It is also only two or three kilometers from the city of Brindisi, a small seaport town in the Puglia region of southern Italy. The single terminal building is well equipped for the needs of its passengers, with facilities that include a number of quality car hire companies. One of the main car rental companies at Brindisi Airport is Budget. Many people enjoy renting a vehicle from Budget because of their affordable rental rates and variety of good services.
Budget, at Brindisi Airport, is open all week. From Mondays to Fridays they are open from 08:30 to 22:00, and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 20:00. On Sundays they are available from 09:00 to 20:00. Vehicles can be hired directly from Budget’s rental counters at Brindisi Airport, or in advance, from their website at www.budget.com. When booking online you will find all the information you need on Budget’s website. The vehicle categories along with pictures of example vehicles in each category are displayed, and details about the vehicles are available as well. Since that most people nowadays have a connection to the Internet, car rental reservations online have become an easy and convenient way to arrange transport for holiday or business trips.
There are certain terms and conditions that should be met by the primary renter and anyone else who will be driving one of Budget’s cars. The minimum age for the rental of all cars at Budget’s Brindisi Airport rental location is 21, and there is also a maximum age limit of 75. In some cases an additional ‘young drivers fee’ is applicable to renters between the ages of 21 and 25. All drivers registered on the rental contract must present a valid drivers license at the time of vehicle collection. An International Driving Permit is a mandatory requirement at Budget from all renters who do not reside in the European Union, or from all drivers whose license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet.
It is important to bring with you the correct documents and information when collecting your vehicle from Budget. If your driver’s license does not include a photo, you should also provide a passport or other form of identification document that does have a photograph. Foreign drivers must have a valid passport, one or two major credit cards (depending on the vehicle category from which you will be renting), a copy of the return airline ticket, and provide a home and/or local address and two telephone numbers. Additional drivers registered on the rental contract will need to meet the same requirements as the primary renter. The major credit cards accepted by Budget are American Express, Diners Club, JCB Card, MasterCard / Eurocard / Access, Visa and Budget Charge Cards. The car categories of H, I, K, L, M and P all require two major credit cards for their rental.
Perhaps one of the reasons why Budget is so popular amongst many renters is that they offer a wide range of environmentally friendly vehicles, which are also very fuel-efficient. Some of these ‘green’ vehicles include the Hyundai Accent, Toyota Prius, Ford Focus, Pontiac G6, Ford Fusion, Ford Taurus, Nissan Altima and the Smart For Two. These vehicles are of various sizes, with the Pontiac G6 seating around four or five people, while the Smart For Two, as its name suggests, is ideal for just two people. All Budget’s vehicles in the Economy, Compact and Intermediate categories are 100% SmartWay certified. It is easy as well to book an environmentally friendly vehicle online by simply choosing one in step 2 of the car rental reservation process. An EPA SmartWay leaf icon indicates them all.
Some people like to know the exact vehicle that they will be driving when they are away from home, and therefore Budget has created ‘My Choice’. My Choice indicates Budget’s Street Fleet rental vehicles that can be booked by their specific makes and models. At certain Budget rental locations hybrid vehicles can also be reserved by their make and model.
Otherwise, cars from Budget are ordinarily rented by car category. Most medium sized rental vehicles come with dual airbag protection, air conditioning, power steering, cruise control, remote keyless entry, power locks, anti-lock brakes and many other amenities. These vehicles may include the Ford Fusion 4 CYL, Ford Taurus or Pontiac G6. There is also an excellent range of high occupancy vehicles for hire from Budget, such as the extra large Ford E350, seating up to twelve people, and the Ford Expedition EL, with space for up to eight passengers. Other vehicles seating seven people include the Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer and Ford Freestar. Extra amenities on these types of vehicles may include satellite radio, Bluetooth/SYNC, keyless entry, powerful V6 or V8 engines, anti-theft systems and map lights.
When collecting your vehicle from Budget, at Brindisi Airport, you should always ensure that every existing damage or scratch on the vehicle has been recorded, as you do not want to be held liable for damages you did not cause. However, all Budget vehicles are cleaned and checked for safety before every rental, and you will therefore receive a well-maintained car.
