About Budget

Budget combines the strength of one of the world’s largest car rental brands together with the detailed local knowledge, flexibility and great value for money you need.

Established in 1958, the Budget Rent a Car brand is licenced within Europe, the Middle East and Africa to Zodiac Europe Ltd (a subsidiary of Avis Budget EMEA Ltd). Budget locations are either directly owned or franchised to local operators across the region.

Our global network now includes more than 3,400 locations, operating a wide range of cars, trucks and vans in over 128 countries.

As our name suggests we’ve always been synonymous with great value for money. We now offer a range of fully inclusive rates, pre-payment options and charge facilities designed to keep you in control and help you save money.

For your peace of mind all our vehicles are safety checked and cleaned before every rental. And because we are constantly renewing our fleet you’ll be driving some of the very latest model vehicles all at low prices.

Dispute resolution
We are a member of the European Car Rental Conciliation Service (ECRCS) and a number of local car rental conciliation services. These organisations independently reviews disputes with no additional cost to you. If you make complaint and are unhappy with our final response you can refer your dispute to the relevant conciliation service. We will tell you who this is.

Whatever your rental needs - we can deliver.
