We were given the oldest most beat up van on the lot even though newer better looking ones were available. The van was dirty and had trash inside. The van needed an alignment. Every time you press the brakes the van would shake terribly.Reviewed 22 Jan. 2024

Top tips for renting a car from Budget in Houston

  • If you are a member of the Fastbreak program with Budget, you will be allowed to bypass any long lines in order to receive faster, more efficient service. This is especially true when you book Budget car rentals in Houston from the location at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH.) At the IAH Arrivals curb, find and get on the Budget bus and the bus driver will take Fastbreak members to the Fastbreak Canopy. At the Canopy, you simply locate your name on the monitor and go to the designated area where your vehicle will be. Choose a vehicle in that area and go to the exit booth, where you will present your driver's license before you are allowed to exit and explore Houston in your Budget rental.
  • When you book Budget car rentals in Houston, most locations offer free cancellation as long as you cancel before your scheduled pickup time. You can also purchase $75,000 of insurance with a $0 deductible for about $11 a day. This insurance covers collision, vandalism, theft, fire, and hail. Also, additional drivers can be covered for no extra charge. When you book Budget car rentals in Houston, you'll usually need a credit card to pick up the car that you rent and you will have unlimited free miles included in your rental. Baby car seats and special requests can be accommodated for an extra free.
  • If you are in Houston and need to rent a car in order to get to Galveston, you can book Budget car rentals in Houston in the direction of Galveston.
