BUDGET Car Rental Services at Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport is the largest airport in Australia, and is the only airport serving Sydney, the largest city on the continent. It is also known as the Kingsford-Smith Airport, and has the official code of SYD. The airport is found just 8 km from the Central Business District of the city, in the suburb of Mascot, next to Botany Bay. Well over 44 million passengers pass through Sydney Airport each year, and the airport is a hub for the airline companies of Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar. Although trains, buses and taxis provide transport from the airport, it is wonderful to have your own rental car in Australia. Passengers arriving at the airport can hire a car from Budget, a car hire company well known around the world for their ‘budget’ prices.

Sydney International Airport consists of three terminal buildings, named as Terminal 1, or the International Terminal, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3, which serve domestic flights at the airport. The majority of passengers at Sydney Airport fly on domestic flights, but the airport also handles almost half of all international air traffic to Australia. T1 and T2 are located quite far apart, therefore buses, trains and taxis provide transfers if required, while T2 and T3 are within walking distance of one another. Passengers arriving at Sydney Airport will find the car hire companies in the arrivals hall of either the international or domestic terminals, and can arrange a vehicle directly from Budget’s rental counters. However, since that it is a very busy airport, passengers are always recommended to hire their vehicle in advance, from Budget’s website at www.budget.com.

Budget, at Sydney Airport, is a Fastbreak Counter location, which means that more frequent renters belonging to Budget’s Fastbreak program will receive priority counter service, and will be able to ‘Get in, Get out and Get going’ much quicker. A frequent renter, as defined by Budget, is someone who has rented three or more times. Proof of these previous rental agreements may need to be provided. Budget’s Fastbreak program is ideal for corporate clients as well, who have little time to spare on car rental procedures. At this Budget location, customers can hire a vehicle or collect and return their vehicles between the hours of 06:00 and 23:00, every day of the week. There are also no exception hours for public holidays. The airport of Sydney has a curfew, of about 23:00, from when no aircraft landings and take-offs are permitted. Flights commence at around 06:00.

Disabled passengers are welcome at Sydney Airport, and Budget provides a range of services to assist disabled drivers. Hand controls are available on certain types of automatic vehicles, or someone who is able to drive a car may accompany a disabled driver. No additional costs are charged for either service. A driver for a disabled renter must be at least 25 years of age, and should have a valid drivers license. The disabled driver may be the primary renter, and should then meet the credit card requirements of the rental location. When hiring the vehicle, simply inform Budget that you are disabled, and will be accompanied by a competent driver. At Sydney Airport, hand controls should be booked in advance, at least 24 hours prior to your arrival.

Under normal circumstances, the primary renter is required to be at least 21 years of age, although many of the vehicle categories have a minimum rental age of 25. National Australian drivers licences are accepted, as well as most local licenses, provided they are written in English. However, there may be cases when an International Driving License is needed. There is no maximum age restriction at this rental location. Renters at Sydney Airport may arrange a one way hire from Budget, which will allow them to collect the vehicle from the airport, but then return it to another rental location, perhaps in the city or even in another town or city nearby. However, Budget’s vehicles are not permitted to be driven into Western Australia or the Northern Territory. Vehicles may also not be taken on ferries to cross over to any of the islands. A one way hire may incur additional charges.

Budget is a car rental company with many years of experience in the industry, and is popular around the world for their low rental prices. Their vehicle fleet only consists of the latest models, and any car rented can be expected to be in good condition. Each car is cleaned and checked for safety before every rental. Although most car hire companies offer 24-hour emergency breakdown assistance, it is important to rent from a company which will provide a reliable vehicle in sound mechanical condition. Much time is wasted when a vehicle has to be replaced, and a breakdown is always a stressful circumstance. Vehicles from Budget, at Sydney Airport, may include the Hyundai Getz, a nice practical-sized car ideal for city driving, or the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Mitsubishi Lancer and Toyota Camry Sedan. Larger estate vehicles, SUV's and Vans may also be available, such as the Holden Commodore Wagon and the Hyundai Imax.

From Budget, customers may also hire additional items of equipment for their journey in Sydney, and the city’s surrounding areas. A child seat will be required for babies or younger children, and a satellite navigation system is ideal for those unfamiliar with the area. These items will cost a few extra dollars per day of rental. All further information is available from Budget, at Sydney Airport, or customers can visit Budget’s website, at www.budget.com.
