Budget is one of the top global car and truck rental companies with more than 3,350 locations in over 120 countries. Our simple aim is to offer you value for money rentals wherever you travel.

Our reputation has been built by providing outstanding value, quality and an award winning service for almost 50 years. We’ve achieved this success by going further to understand our customers’ needs and by constantly adapting our business to remain a market leading rental operator.

We are also constantly renewing our great range of vehicles so you can be sure you’ll be driving some of the latest models all at competitive prices.

Our Fleet

And lots of them! Over 160,000 rental vehicles in fact, from small cars to luxury cars, hatchbacks to convertibles, light vans to trucks too.

There's a vehicle to suit you, whatever your needs. Typically, our cars are no more than six months old so you get to drive the latest models. And of course every vehicle is safety checked and cleaned before every rental.

In the unlikely event of a breakdown or collision, don't worry; all our vehicles have 24/7 roadside assistance, giving you peace of mind during your travels.
