Budget Salt Lake City Airport
The Salt Lake City International Airport, with the IATA code of SLC, is located nearby to the Central Business district of the city, and serves approximately twenty million passengers per annum. This number of passengers makes it one of the busiest airports in the United States of America, and its high number of aircraft movements place it as 24th busiest in the world. The airport is also only a fifteen minute drive from the Salt Palace Convention Centre and the downtown hotels of Salt Lake City. To really enjoy all that this intriguing city has to offer, a rented car is recommended, from a company such as Budget Salt Lake City International Airport. Budget stays true to their name by offering very low car rental rates, and ensures customer satisfaction by hiring only late-model, high-quality vehicles.
To rent a car in the United States of America a valid drivers license is required, as well as a major credit card. There are also certain age restrictions in place by the various car hire companies available, for example, only persons 25 years of age or older may hire a car. However, even though 25 is the age required for all car categories, persons aged between 21 and 24 may hire a car as well, from certain categories. Younger drivers will just pay higher rental rates for young drivers insurance, which could amount to about $27.00 per day of car hire. The drivers license presented should have been issued in the United States of America, or should be Canadian-endorsed. If the renter is from a foreign country a passport will be required, and an International Driving Permit may be needed to support the local license, especially if it is not printed in English.
At the start of the rental period, customers of Budget must present a major credit card, such as American Express, Diner’s Club Int’l, AT & T Capital, Sears, PHH, MasterCard, Discover or Visa. A hold for the estimated rental charges will be placed on the account, and this amount will not be available for use. Renters who are over the age of 25 may also use a debit card with the MasterCard or Visa logo for this purpose, but an additional amount of $200.00 will be withheld. Any person may also be subject to a credit check to determine creditworthiness. All the terms and conditions of Budget should be carefully examined before renting a car so that you know exactly what can be expected and what fees will be due. Staff at Budget will be happy to provide their assistance as well.
The Salt Lake City International Airport car rental companies, including Budget, are found on the lower level of the airport’s parking garage, within easy reach of the two terminal buildings. Signposts lead the way from the baggage claim areas. Although cars can be hired directly over the rental counters, an advanced online reservation is recommended. Your vehicle will then be ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport, and all items of additional equipment will be ready, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. A GPS is often recommended for travellers who are unfamiliar with the Salt Lake City area of Utah. Budget hand controls for disabled drivers should be reserved in advance as well from Salt Lake City International Airport. Hand controls may only be used by persons with a lower limb disability, and not by able-bodied individuals. The device is free of charge, but all other items of equipment will cost a few extra dollars.
It is also recommended to arrange a Budget one way hire in advance, and this can be done online as well. This service enables the customer to return their vehicle to a different rental location, and they therefore need not drive back to Salt Lake City International Airport. One way hires are therefore convenient for travellers who are leaving from a different airport location. Budget has rental offices at all major airports in the United States of America, and at many downtown locations as well. Keep in mind that vehicles may not be permitted to be driven out of the country, across the borders between the U.S. and Mexico/Canada. Always confirm with Budget to where your hired car may be driven and returned.
Cars for hire from the Salt Lake City International Airport car hire companies could be similar to the Hyundai Accent and Ford Focus, with features such as cruise control and iPod and MP3 capabilities, or to the Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Chevy Impala Ford Escape and Infiniti G25. The Ford Escape is an SUV with a powerful V6 engine and rear floor heating ducts, while the Chevy Impala features dual-zone climate control and cruise control. Many of Budget’s vehicles are considered as ‘green’, eco-friendly cars that are fuel efficient. All cars that are Budget’s ‘Green Machines’ are indicated by an EPA SmartWay leaf icon, and are attractively priced. Budget also has a number of cars in their Street Fleet category, which can be booked by their specific make and model, rather than just by category.
Although smaller cars are usually cheaper to hire, sometimes a larger SUV or Minivan is required. Budget has several high occupancy vehicles available, that seat between seven and twelve people. They all offer good space for luggage as well. Larger vehicles include the Dodge Caravan, Ford Explorer, Ford Expedition EL and the Ford Econoline. Special features of these vehicles may include V8 engines, map lights, keyless entry and anti-lock brakes.
