FAQs about renting a car from Budget in Vancouver
Budget offers disabled drivers vehicles equipped with special devices with no added charges. These include hand controls, spinner knobs, swivel seats, panoramic mirrors, and transfer boards. Many locations have these devices available, but not all vehicle makes and models can be outfitted with them. To ensure that your vehicle can be accommodated and that it will have what you need, you should inform Budget at least two days before your scheduled pickup. If you are interested in having a surrogate driver, you should make sure they are qualified under rental criteria and confirm the location.
Budget car rentals in Vancouver are even more convenient because you have plenty of parking choices as you drive around the city. On-street parking is available with time limits or meters. Time-limited spaces are usually for around one or two hours, and parking meters usually are in effect from around 9 am to about 10 pm, every day of the week, even on holidays. The rates will differ depending on the location. Also, rates before 6 pm may differ from those after 6 pm. There are also many public parking lots all across the city. The rates and operating hours differ as well. For example, the lot at Vancouver City Hall charges about C$ 2.95 per hour from Monday to Friday and about C$ 3.85 per hour on weekends.
If you want some additional protection for your rental, you may want to consider opting for a loss damage waiver (LDW), which could cost around C$ 30 per day, depending on the vehicle. With LDW, you could reduce any financial responsibility if your rental is damaged or stolen. The amount will depend on certain criteria and will be specified in your rental agreement. It could help even if you have your own coverage, as you might not have to go through a claims process if something does occur.
