Budget Car Rental

Budget operates a modern, well maintained fleet of passenger cars, four wheel drives and mini vans from over 240 locations, including outlets at all major cities and provincial locations and service counters in-terminal at every major airport. Most of the fleet is leased for a twelve month period, with new vehicles replacing vehicles at the end of their lease on a month by month basis. Each is presented clean after a 20 point safety check before rental. If your hotel is within 15 km of a Budget depot they will deliver your vehicle free of charge between the hours of 8.30 am and 4.30 pm Monday to Friday (restrictions apply).
