How to Cancel Your Budget Car Reservation

Budget is a vehicle rental company, offering a variety of cars and cargo buses for you to rent and travel with. Whether you're moving or going on vacation, they likely have the perfect vehicle for you to take on your journey. They have over 3000 locations worldwide, so you'll be covered no matter where you end up going.

isn't hard, but it can be frustrating. Fees are involved if you've already prepaid for the rental, but not if you didn't prepay. This may seem rather unfair since both hold reservations, but you're not charged a cancellation fee for not pre-paying.

The cancellation fee includes a $50 processing fee for canceling a prepaid reservation, but the amount goes up to $150 if you cancel after the pick-up time. If you've made a booking through a travel agency/website, you'll have to cancel through that company.

To cancel a Budget car reservation:

  1. Go to Budget's "Cancel my Reservation" page.
  2. Enter your booking number and last name.
  3. Click "search now".
  4. Budget should easily be able to find your reservation. You can then cancel and confirm it, and a confirmation email should be sent to you.

How to Request a Refund from Budget

You can request a refund from Budget using the same process you would for canceling a reservation. This is only done if you've prepaid for your rental, of course, and it's unclear if the deposit put down for a rental will be refunded otherwise. There are certain cases where you won't be able to obtain a refund. These situations include:

  • Returning your rental early. You will not be refunded for the days you didn't use the rental.
  • Booking through a travel company. Budget will not refund you. You'll have to contact the travel agency to inquire about a refund, but Budget is under no obligation to provide one.
  • Late fees will not be refunded, no matter what the late reason is. After seven hours, you will be charged a full day's late fee.
