About us

Budget combines the strength of one of the world's largest car rental brands together with the detailed local knowledge, flexibility and great value for money you need.

Established in 1958, the Budget Rent a Car brand is licenced within Europe, the Middle East and Africa to Zodiac Europe Ltd (a subsidiary of Avis Budget EMEA Ltd). Budget locations are either directly owned or franchised to local operators across the region.

Our global network now includes approximately 3,150 locations in more than 120 countries.

As our name suggests we've always been synonymous with great value for money. We now offer a range of pre-payment options and charge facilities designed to keep you in control and help you save money.

For your peace of mind all our vehicles are safety checked and cleaned before every rental. And because we are constantly renewing our fleet you’ll be driving some of the very latest model vehicles all at low prices.

Whatever your rental needs - we can deliver.
