Budget Rent a Car was established in 1958, and is now proud of more than 3,400 locations in 128 countries. They consistently aim to provide their customers with great value for money by offering a range of fully inclusive rates, pre-payment options and charge card facilities which are designed to save time and money. All Budget vehicles are checked and cleaned before every rental, and are of the latest models. You can rest assured that you will be receiving a well-maintained vehicle from Budget.
All rented vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel at the beginning of the rental period, and there are various fuel options available to customers when they return the vehicle. Many customers who will be using all or most of the full tank of fuel like to pre-pay for the fuel in advance of their rental. The vehicle can then be returned empty. Remember though that you will not be credited for any unused fuel in the vehicle. If you do not think that you will use all the fuel, then you don’t need to pay for a full tank, simply re-fuel the vehicle before returning it. However, if you do not have time to stop for fuel, you can still return the vehicle to Budget with an empty tank, but you will then pay for the fuel at the return location’s per-liter re-fueling service charge, which could be more expensive than at a conventional gas station.
At Budget, Venice Airport, customers can hire a variety of useful items of equipment together with their vehicle. Extra items may include a baby safety seat, luggage racks or a satellite navigation system. If you need a seat for your baby, make sure that Budget knows the age of your child so that they can provide the correct sized seat.
