View Full Version : Budget car rental - no longer unlimited miles?
04-06-2009, 08:21 AM
So my bride and I are going to LA and Napa Valley. I want to rent a car at LAX and return it to SFO (or OAK). I check online at Budget and get a good price, but I see it says ".45 USD/additional mile".
Huh? I thought all car rentals now-a-days included unlimited miles. Also, I could find absolutely nothing about how many miles were included in your rental. Driving from LA to Napa Valley is no short trip. I don't want to get hosed.
Anyone have more info?
From their FAQ:
(TIP: If you’re quoted a price-per-mile charge in the rate summary of the online reservation tool, and don’t see a mention of “unlimited mileage,” it means that the locations you've selected don't participate in the unlimited mileage one-way program.)
You might want to try returning it at a larger location (airport) and see if that gives you the Unlimited option. Err, just saw that you wanted to return at SFO or Oakland airport. Odd that unlimited wouldn't be an option. Perhaps you can call them to see which locations qualify.

Thanks. I'll probably just call. Kind of defeats the convenience of the internet.
I wouldn't mind a mileage limit as long as they'd tell me what it was.

i know enterprize charges a extra free for dropinga car off at a diffrent location. its like one extra days rental. when i picked a car up in clearwater and drop it off at tampa airport cost was $49.extra. but i still got unlimited mileage. if you have full coverage on your personal car. you should be fully covered on a rental.but just double check with you insurer to be sure. they rape you if you use sign up of the extra coverage at the retal car company. also i was shocked at what enterprize want's to charge you to rent a garmin gps. when you rent a car you can own one after a weeks rental rate.
