Budget Car Rental is one of the car hire companies located at Catania-Fontanarossa Airport. Amongst many others, Budget’s rental counters can be found on the ground floor of the airport’s single terminal building, and this is the Arrivals area. Budget customers can find out more information about rental policies and procedures at these counters, or they can visit Budget’s website, at www.budget.com.
Budget, as their name suggests, strives to offer the best rental vehicles at exceptional rates. Budget was originally established in 1958, and now has more than 3,400 locations in over 128 countries. Every vehicle is safety checked and cleaned before each new rental, therefore customers can be rest assured that they are receiving a well-looked after vehicle. Budget also offers only the latest model cars to their customers, as they are continuously renewing their fleet.
In order to collect your rented vehicle from Budget, you will require your driver’s license, major credit card, reservation confirmation details and passport, plus one other form of identification, such as a utility bill. Customers from the UK are advised to bring both parts of their driver’s license. All vehicles require a pre-rental inspection before leaving the premises. This inspection is done before you collect the vehicle and will need to be signed by the primary renter, however, it is important that you check the details written on this form to ensure that they are correct, and that no damages have been left out. You do not want to be held responsible for damages that you did not cause. The renter of the vehicle will be held liable for any new scratches, dents or damages when the vehicle is returned.
Once you have completed the inspection, it is also wise to ensure that you know how to operate the vehicle, and ask a Budget staff member to demonstrate any workings that you are unfamiliar with. Before leaving as well, check that your mirrors are in the correct position, and that your seat is comfortably positioned.
Rented vehicles from Budget are usually handed over to the customer with a full tank of fuel. However, there are sometimes other options available. Option one allows the customer to pay in advance for a full tank of fuel and bring the vehicle back empty. Budget will then re-fuel the car at, or below, the current price of petrol. Remember though that no refunds are given for unused fuel. Option two allows you to pay for a full tank of fuel as well, but to avoid any extra re-fuelling charges you must re-fuel the vehicle before returning it. Option three is for those customers who do not plan to use the full tank of fuel and do not want to re-fuel the vehicle on their return. Customers will then only pay for the fuel they have used at the price based on the return location’s per-liter refueling service charge.
Budget, at Catania Airport, ensures that they do their share to save the environment by offering their clients a choice of environmentally friendly cars. Some of these car models include the Hyundai Accent, Ford Focus, Ford Taurus, Pontiac G6, Nissan Altima, Toyota Prius and Ford Escape. If you make your reservation online, you will select one of these Green Machines from Step 2 of the rental process. The fuel efficient Green vehicles are indicated by an EPA SmartWay leaf icon on the website.
Business renters are also well looked after by Budget, as they cater for the needs of the regular business renter. Business renters are guaranteed exceptional service with consistently low rates, easier bookings with online or call center reservation options, and a range of business billing options for convenience.
