Budget Tampa Airport
Tampa has a busy airport that is referred to as the Tampa International Airport, and is a city in the US state of Florida. Its airport is also recognised by the official code of TPA. Tampa Airport is a hub for Silver Airways, and is served by many other airline companies as well, which offer flights to and from approximately 72 non-stop destinations. Many domestic flights are handled, as well as international fights from Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the Caribbean. Arriving passengers can rent a car from Budget Tampa International Airport, and fully explore this beautiful area of America, travelling the city as well as all the surrounding areas. A hired car is considered as the ultimate form of transport from the airport.
Budget is one of the most well-known and loved car rental companies in the world, with very reasonable rental rates for high quality vehicles. The company has many years of experience in the industry, and offers a wide range of services to frequent and occasional renters. Tampa Airport is one of Budget’s Fastbreak locations where members of the program can enjoy faster rentals, reservations and returns, and perhaps even discounted rental rates. Fastbreak is available to frequent renters, who are persons that have hired a car three or more times from any of Budget’s car rental facilities. The membership is free of charge and is not a contract of any form.
At the Tampa International Airport, car hire facilities can be found at the new Red Rental Location adjacent to the airport’s Marriott Hotel. Budget has no exception hours, which means that they are available on public holidays, and are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Their services are therefore convenient for passengers arriving on all flights. Vehicles are usually hired on a twenty-four hour basis, and may be hired for one day or longer. Sometimes there are also special rental programs in place that allow customers to drive their vehicles for a couple of months. A corporate or business account is usually required for this service.
Budget’s vehicles are all cleaned and checked for safety before every rental, and a check will be performed before the vehicle leaves the airport to note any existing damages. Another check will be performed when the vehicle is returned to the airport. It is recommended for the renter to also look over the vehicle for any damages. Unless a Budget one way hire is arranged, the vehicle is always returned to Tampa International Airport. One way hires are convenient for certain travel itineraries, but may have additional charges. All items hired along with the vehicle should also be returned, for example, satellite navigation systems and child seats. These items are the responsibility of the renter once they are hired, and should be carefully looked after and returned in the same condition as they were received. Young children will need to be secured in a child seat as all passengers of vehicles driven in the US are required to wear seatbelts.
Various fuel policies are available from Budget. For longer rentals, however, the customer is usually expected to purchase a tank of fuel at the start of the rental period. In this case, the vehicle may be returned as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. If fuel was not purchased, simply return the vehicle full, and no additional charges will be applicable. Vehicles in the US may use different types of fuel, therefore always confirm which fuel to use for your hired vehicle. Before leaving the airport as well, confirm any emergency numbers to contact should an accident or breakdown occur. Many of the Tampa International Airport car rental companies offer twenty-four hour emergency assistance for their renters.
Budget will expect their primary renters, as well as all additional drivers registered on the rental agreement, to be at least 21 years of age, and to hold a valid US-issued drivers license. A major credit card will be required as well, however, a debit card may be used by persons who are over the age of 25 provided that it has the MasterCard or Visa logo. Canadian-endorsed driving licenses are usually accepted as well, but persons from other countries of the world may require an International Driving Permit, as well as other documents, such as a passport and return airline ticket. Keep in mind that younger renters (persons between the ages of 21 and 24) will pay higher rental rates for young drivers insurance. They may also not be permitted to hire vehicles from all car categories.
Budget hires environmentally friendly vehicles that are very popular, similar to the Ford Focus, Hyundai Accent and Dodge Avenger. All vehicles in the Economy, Compact and Intermediate categories are fuel efficient and US EPA SmartWay Certified. Larger sized vehicles are often hired by families, as they have more room for luggage, such as the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Impala, while SUVs available include the Ford Escape, Ford Expedition and Ford Explorer. Budget’s minivans are ideal for seven passengers, or if a larger vehicle is required, the Ford Econoline can seat up to twelve people.
Most vehicles hired have automatic transmissions, and these are also the type of vehicles that are used for Budget’s hand controls, a device that enables persons with lower limb disabilities to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. From Tampa International Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but will need to be hired in advance.
