Do You Need to Rent a Budget Car for One-Way Travel in Advance?

Drivers do not need to give advance notice to rent a car for one-way travel in advance, as long as the Budget location has available vehicles in its fleet. Customers who book in advance can ensure vehicle availability and may be eligible for special discounts one rentals.

Budget's fleet includes rental classes ranging from compact cars to luxury sedans available for one-way travel. Renters can make arrangements online, by phone or in-person at one of the 600-plus Budget locations throughout the United States. While many locations participate in the unlimited mileage program, others reserve a price-per-mileage charge. Budget requires renters to drop off the rental at a pre-arranged location, or call before drop-off time to notify of a change in return location to avoid a penalty fee.
