When collecting your vehicle from Budget, at Bari Airport, make sure that you have your driving license, major credit card, reservation confirmation details and passport, as well as one other form of I.D., such as a utility bill. It is not always that Budget requires the extra form of I.D., but it is best to have it just in case. Both parts of the driving license is required for those with a UK driving license. Accepted credit cards include American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa. Cash, checks and debit cards are not usually accepted.
Before each rental, the vehicle has had a pre-rental inspection. This inspection makes a note of all the existing damages, scratches or dents on the vehicle, so that you are not held liable for damages you did not cause. It is important that you also check the vehicle to ensure that this report is correct.
Budget customers can, in most cases, choose between three re-fueling options. The rented vehicle will always have a full tank of fuel at the beginning of the rental, but you can choose how you would like to return it. For example, you can pay for a full tank of fuel in advance, and bring the vehicle back empty, or you can simply bring the car back full and avoid any re-fueling service charges. Or thirdly, if you do not have time to stop for fuel, but also will not be using a full tank of fuel, Budget will replace the fuel based on the return location’s per-liter re-fueling service charge.
Budget, at Bari Airport, will be able to provide more information in regards to rental policies and procedures.
