Accepted credit card list: Budget Charge Card, Budget International, American Express, Carte Blanche, Diner's Club, Diner's Club International, Discover, China UnionPay, JCB, MasterCard, Optima, Peterson, Howell and Heather (PHH) and Visa. Some locations may not accept each of the referenced cards. At the time of rental, we will request an authorization on your charge card for the total estimated rental charges or $200, whichever is greater. While this hold is in place, the funds will not be available for your use. When the rental is over, we will process the reversal but the bank may take time to post it back to the account.
Driver's License Requirements
At time of rental, driver must present a valid drivers license in the drivers name. All drivers must have a safe driving record. You may be asked to sign a driving record addendum or be subject to a computerized Department of Motor Vehicles check. Based upon such search, Budget reserves the right to deny a rental opportunity. Customers with a drivers license in a non-Roman alphabet may be asked to present an international driving permit (IDP) for translation purposes.
Additional Fees and Credit Holds
In order to rent a car, we will put a hold on your credit card (or debit card at some locations) for the total estimated rental charges. A prepaid card is not an acceptable method of credit identification for this hold. While the hold is in place, the funds will not be available for your use. Once you return the vehicle, we will process a release of the unused portion of the hold subject to your bank's procedures. The hold could take up to 2 weeks to be released by your bank.
If you want to use a credit card for the hold, that amount will be the total estimated rental charges or $200.00, whichever is greater.
Upon paying your rental with a debit card, Budget will generally request an authorization hold against your account for the estimated charges of the rental but reserves the right in its sole discretion, to request extra value based on certain factors as we deem appropriate. Some exceptions may apply. If you have prepaid for the rental on Budget.com, the hold will be $100.00. THESE FUNDS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR USE.
You will be subject to a credit check to determine creditworthiness and the rental may be denied based on the results of this check.
If you don't return the vehicle as agreed, we will obtain additional debit hold authorizations from your account to cover the rental charges.
We are not responsible for any returned checks or over-drafts due to our debit hold policy.
A debit, check card or prepaid card can be used for payment of rental charges upon car return.
Except for a surcharge for renters under 25 years of age at some locations, your total rental rate is calculated based on the information provided at time of reservation. The rate is based on the exact parameters (location, dates, etc.) of your particular rental -- so changing any of your confirmed reservation parameters could result in a different rates, taxes and fees.
Quoted taxes and fees are subject to change which will affect your final total due at rental return.
