Budget Winnipeg Airport
Winnipeg International Airport is located very nearby to the city centre of Winnipeg, Canada, and is quite a large airport handling approximately 3.3 million passengers per annum. The airport’s full name is the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, in honour of James Richardson, who was a influential businessman and pioneer of Canadian commercial aviation, and is recognised by its official code of YWG. Arriving passengers have several facilities at their disposal, including car hire companies. Budget is one of these companies, and offers all their airport passengers competitive deals for their car hire choices.
The airport consists of a single terminal building, from where the majority of its airline companies operate, however, there are also another two smaller passenger terminals on the airport grounds, which are home to flights by Perimeter Airlines and Kivallig Air. The airport is a hub for these two airline companies. Passengers arriving at the airport will find the car hire companies on the main level of the parkade, which is just opposite the terminal building. The car rental counters are therefore within easy walking distance of the baggage reclaim area. Budget has no exception hours at this location, which means that they are even open on bank holidays. On Saturdays they are open from 08:00 to 23:00, on Sundays they are open from 08:00 to midnight and from Monday to Friday vehicles can be collected between the hours of 07:00 and midnight. Vehicles may hired online, in advance of the customer’s arrival at the airport.
Passengers arranging a car from Budget Winnipeg Airport are advised to read all the company’s terms and conditions. The terms and conditions are not simply ‘fine print’, but information that will assist with a smooth and hassle-free car rental experience. In general, the primary renter should be at least 25 years of age or older, but persons aged between 21 and 24 may hire vehicles as well. Younger renters will just pay higher rental rates, and will not be able to choose a vehicle from all the available categories. The additional charge for young driver fees is $35.00 CAD per day, and the car groups which are not permitted for hire are H, L, P, S, V, W, X and Z, mostly containing larger and specialty cars such as SUVs and convertibles. When the customer arrives at the car rental counters, a valid driving license will be required, as well as one of the major credit cards that are accepted by Budget. Both should be in the name of the primary renter/driver. Driving licenses from the United States of America are generally accepted and others that are printed in English (and possibly French), but Canadian G1 and G2 licenses cannot be used to validate a car rental agreement. All drivers must have a safe driving record.
Cross-border rentals from Budget are allowed from rental locations in Canada and the USA, which means that rented cars may drive freely between these two countries, however, vehicles may not be taken into Mexico or Alaska. Budget one way hires can be arranged as well, which is when the car is collected from one rental location but delivered to another. From Winnipeg International Airport, one way hires could be free of charge, but could also incur additional charges. Their fees will mainly depend on the return location chosen for the vehicle and the length of the rental period. Certain vehicles may also not be permitted for one way hire journeys. When booking your vehicle, remember to include a child seat or satellite navigation system, and disabled drivers are welcome to request the use of hand control equipment from Winnipeg Airport. Hand controls are useful to individuals with a lower limb disability, and Budget’s hand controls are free of charge.
The vehicles for hire range from small to large. The smaller cars, such as the Hyundai Accent and Ford Focus, could be considered by customers who want to pay lower rental rates, and by those who don’t have much luggage to load. They are ideal for city driving, or for longer distances. Medium sized cars may include features such as air conditioning, power windows, cruise control and dual airbag protection, and are similar to the Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Chevy Impala, Ford Escape and Infiniti G25. These cars are often chosen by families who need room for luggage, and the Infiniti, a specialty car, is more luxurious than the ordinary rental. Persons in Winnipeg for business may require a more elegant vehicle. Car rental companies also offer large and high occupancy vehicles for hire. They include the Ford Edge, Mercury Grand Marquis, Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer, Dodge Caravan, Ford Expedition EL and the Ford Econoline, which is one of the largest vehicles available and able to seat up to twelve passengers. The others seat seven or eight passengers.
Budget is also one of the only car hire companies to offer vehicles that can be more specifically hired by their makes and models, rather than just by category. If you would like to hire a specific vehicle, look for the Street Fleet cars, which include the Chevy Corvette, Ford Mustang, Toyota Prius Hybrid, Volvo V70, BMW X3, Jeep Wrangler, Lincoln Navigator and Fiat 500. Winnipeg is one of Budget’s Fastbreak rental locations, where members of the Fastbreak program can expect to receive priority counter service and all the other benefits of the membership. Customers may join Fastbreak for free if they have rented three or more times from any of Budget’s rental locations around the world. Find out more details from Budget, at Winnipeg Airport.
