Budget Bologna Airport

There are a number of useful facilities within the Bologna Airport terminal building, including a good selection of car hire companies. Budget Car Hire is available, and they are popular for their low rental rates and large variety of vehicles for hire. Budget can be found in the arrivals area of Bologna Airport.

Budget Bologna Airport is open every day of the week, between the hours of 08:00 and 22:00. The car rental offices of Budget can be fairly easily located at the airport, as departures are handled from the upper floor and the arrivals area is on the ground floor. Once passengers have shown the necessary documents and signed their rental agreement, they can collect their vehicle from the P2 car park, which is the multi-storey parking garage nearby the terminal. All the vehicles are parked on Level 1 of this parking lot. Customers who would like to ensure that their ideal car will be available can make an advanced reservation from Budget’s website, at An advanced reservation is especially recommended during the busier tourist season, and for any additional items necessary for the journey, such as a child seat, booster seat or satellite navigation system. There are extra charges per day of rental for any additional item of equipment hired, and the items are subject to availability.

On Budget’s website, customers can view all Budget’s rental terms and conditions. At most rental locations in Italy, and at Bologna Airport, the primary renter is required to be at least 21 years of age. There is a maximum age restriction for this location of 75 years for all cars. All drivers on the rental contract must produce a valid drivers license when collecting the vehicle, and they should have held their license in their country of residence for at least one year prior to the rental date. Foreign renters are required to have an International Driving Permit as well. Foreign renters will also need to have a valid passport; a copy of a return airline ticket, and customers must provide a home and/or local address and two telephone numbers. A major credit card will be required in order to pay for the rental. Major credit cards accepted by Budget include American Express, Diners Club, JCB Card, MasterCard / Eurocard / Access, Visa and Budget Charge Cards. Two major credit cards are needed for car groups H, I, K, L, M and P. Cars in these groups are usually larger or more specialized types of vehicles, such as convertibles or minivans.

Budget Bologna Airport is extremely popular for their variety of environmentally friendly vehicles. All their vehicles in the Economy, Compact and Intermediate categories are 100% SmartWay certified, and very light on fuel as well. Some of Budget’s ‘green machines’ include the Hyundai Accent, Ford Focus, Pontiac G6, Ford Fusion, Toyota Prius, Nissan Altima, Ford Taurus and Smart For Two. The Smart For Two is a smaller vehicle, and ideal for just two people (as its name suggests!) and is a great choice for city driving. It doesn’t have much room for luggage though. Some of the other vehicles such as the Pontiac G6 are medium sized cars, which come with many features. They may have dual airbag protection, air conditioning, power steering, anti-lock brakes, cruise control and power locks.

Budget’s environmentally friendly vehicles can be reserved from their website in step 2 of the car rental reservation process. They are easy to find, as an EPA SmartWay leaf icon indicates them all. Budget customers also have the choice to reserve a vehicle by its specific make and model, rather than choosing just a car category. These are Budget’s Street Fleet rental vehicles, and are found under ‘My Choice’ on their website. This is a great option for anyone who likes to know exactly which car they will be driving.

There are also larger vehicles available from Budget, which may be ideal for families who require extra space within their vehicles, or for groups of travellers who want to travel in one vehicle. The Ford E350 is the largest seating option for twelve passengers, while the Ford Expedition EL can seat up to eight passengers. The Ford E350 may include the extra amenities of map lights, a V8 engine and anti-lock brakes. For seven passengers, the Ford Explorer, Ford Expedition and Ford Freestar are ideal choices.
