BUDGET Car Rental Services at Birmingham Airport

Birmingham Airport is only 10 km from the city center of Birmingham, and is bordered by the National Exhibition Center, Sheldon and Marston Green. London is situated about 185 km from the airport, and is a two-hour journey by car. Birmingham Airport recently merged its two terminal buildings into one, which should improve the flow of passengers and the efficiency of the airport’s operations. There are many car hire companies in the arrivals area of the terminal, one of which is Budget. Budget is well known for their low rental prices, and vehicles that are excellent value for money.

Budget Birmingham Airport is open every day of the week. From Sundays to Thursdays their rental desks are open between the hours of 06:30 and 23:00, while on Fridays and Saturdays they are open from 006:30 to 22:30. Booking a rental car with Budget at Birmingham Airport can be done using  the form above. Many passengers prefer the convenience of hiring a vehicle from the comfort of their own homes, and it is actually recommended to make a booking in advance of your flight to Birmingham Airport. This will ensure that Budget has the vehicle that you need for your travels. This website has plenty of information about their vehicles and rental terms and conditions.

Budget Birmingham Airport is one of Budget’s Fastbreak locations. Fastbreak is a program designed to benefit corporate business renters and frequent renters. A frequent renter, as defined by Budget, is a customer who has rented three or more times. Three rental agreement numbers may need to be provided as proof. Fastbreak customers receive priority service at all Budget International airports, and have minimal paperwork to complete. At a Fastbreak rental location, you will ‘Get in, Get out and Get going’ fast. Fastbreak is a free membership, although your driver’s license and credit card details are required for your application.

There are certain terms and conditions for rented vehicles at Budget. All primary renters need to be at least 23 years of age in order to rent a vehicle at the Budget’s Birmingham Airport location, and need to have held a valid drivers license for at least one year prior to the rental date. There is a maximum age at this location of 75. Younger drivers aged 23 to 25 will pay a higher rental rate, for a young driver surcharge, and there is also a senior driver surcharge that will apply to drivers aged between 70 and 75. These are daily rates applicable to all ‘underage’ or ‘senior’ drivers registered on the contract, up until a maximum amount charged.

Various types of insurance are available from Budget, and can be organized from the rental counter when you collect your vehicle. However, customers should find out if their credit card company offers sufficient cover before taking out extra insurance. All primary renters must have a major credit card in their name. Two major credit cards are required for the car group of H. Budget accepts the cards of American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard, Visa and Budget Charge Cards. Additional drivers registered on the rental contract should meet the same requirements as the primary renters.

Perhaps one of the reasons why Budget is such a popular car hire company is that they offer a wide range of environmentally friendly vehicles for hire. These vehicles are also very fuel efficient, and come in various sizes. Examples include the Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Pontiac G6, Ford Taurus, Hyundai Accent, Toyota Prius and the Smart For Two, which is a great car just for two. All Budget vehicles in the categories of Economy, Compact and Intermediate are 100% SmartWay certified. Since some of these vehicles fall into the medium car range, they come with amenities such as dual airbag protection, cruise control, power windows, power steering, anti-lock brakes, air conditioning and remote key-less entry.

Budget’s ‘green’ machines are easy to hire online, in step two of the car rental reservation process. All environmentally friendly vehicles from Budget are indicated by an EPA SmartWay leaf icon on their website. Customers at Budget can also hire a few vehicles by their specific makes and models, instead of just by category. ‘My Choice’ indicates Budget’s Street Fleet rental vehicles, which can be reserved in this way. At certain locations, hybrid cars can also be specifically reserved.

Budget has over fifty years of experience in the car hire industry, and is one of the world’s largest car rental brands. They began in 1958, and today have over 3,400 rental locations, in over 128 countries. Budget is synonymous with great value for money, and always offers a range of fully inclusive rental rates, pre-payment options and charge facilities to help keep you in control of your finances, and to help their customers save money. All Budget vehicles are of the latest models possible, and are safety checked and cleaned before every rental. Customers can have peace of mind in knowing they will receive a well-maintained vehicle from Budget.
