Budget Edmonton International Airport
Edmonton International Airport is located nearby the small towns of Beaumont and Devon, and approximately 26km, or 16 miles from downtown Edmonton, the sixth largest city in Canada. The airport is recognised by its official code of YEG, and is rated as the fifth largest airport in the country. Approximately six million passengers pass through Edmonton Airport every year. Although buses and taxis are available for transport, passengers can also rent a car, from one of the Edmonton International Airport car hire companies, such as Budget. Budget is loved by many for their ‘budget’ car rental rates, as well as for several other innovative services.
Edmonton Airport has a South Terminal and a North Terminal, and over recent years, much work has been done to expand the terminal buildings. Further work continues to join the two terminals with a new concourse, and to build an airport hotel, which should be opened in 2013. The airport is expected to handle many more passengers per annum than is currently recorded, and therefore expansion is needed. International and domestic flights arrive at the North Terminal, while many flights from the United States arrive at the South Terminal. From the baggage reclaim areas, passengers should follow signs to the Edmonton International Airport Car Rental Centre, on the lower level of the airport parkade. Budget is open at this rental location from 06:00 to midnight on weekdays, from 07:00 to midnight on Saturdays and from 06:30 to midnight on Sundays. Budget’s hours of operation may vary on public holidays, such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Eve.
Budget is one of the leading car rental companies in many countries around the world. The global Budget network consists of over 3,900 rental locations in 125 countries. True to their name, ‘budget’ prices are what customers can expect from Budget, as well as vehicles which are of extremely high value. Budget vehicles are also cleaned and checked for safety before every rental. Budget has also been taking online bookings for a number of years, which is most convenient for many of their customers. An online advanced reservation is recommended for their location at Edmonton Airport.
Budget Edmonton International Airport is a Fastbreak rental location, which means that customers who are Fastbreak members can enjoy priority counter service and many of the other benefits which come along with the membership. Fastbreak is a free service, however, it is only available to more frequent Budget renters. A person defined as a frequent renter by Budget is someone who has hired a car more than three times from any of Budget’s rental locations around the world. Proof of three rental agreements may be required when applying for the Fastbreak service. Fastbreak members should also meet the minimum requirements for renting a vehicle, for example, should be at least 21 years of age and should be the holder of a major credit card. A valid drivers license held by the applicant in his/her country of residence for a number of years will be required as well.
Similar requirements are expected from renters at Edmonton Airport. Keep in mind that primary renters (and all additional drivers registered on the rental agreement) under the age of 25 will pay higher rental rates. This is for young driver fees, and is a customary addition by most major car hire companies. Younger drivers may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories, usually those containing larger or specialty type vehicles, such as convertibles. An International Driving Permit may also be required for renters who reside in foreign countries.
Along with your car from Budget, child seats and satellite navigation systems can be hired, and for disabled drivers, Budget hand controls may be requested. These items, especially hand controls, are recommended to be reserved in advance from Edmonton International Airport. Hand control equipment is free of charge, but child seats and GPS units have a cost either per rental or per day of hire. They will, however, be an essential part of your journey in Canada. Budget one way hires may be permitted, which allow the vehicle to be returned to a location other than Edmonton International Airport. One way hire services may also incur additional charges. From this Budget location, cross-border rentals are only allowed with written permission from the company, therefore make enquiries well in advance should you wish to travel into the United States.
Vehicles from Budget are arranged into various car groups, some of which include Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard, Fullsize, Standard SUV, Fullsize SUV and Fullsize Passenger Van. Small and large cars are available, with the smaller models usually the least expensive to hire. An example of an Economy car is the Hyundai Accent Sedan, and a Compact vehicle is the Ford Fiesta Sedan. Additional car rentals from Budget include the Chevrolet Cruze, Nissan Altima and the Chevrolet Impala, while SUVs from Budget may be similar to the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer and Ford Expedition. Mini Passenger Vans for hire include the Dodge Grand Caravan for seven passengers, and the Ford Econ for up to fifteen passengers is a Fullsize Passenger Van.
