How do I extend my short-term hire?

On your rental agreement you can find the date and time when the rental period ends and the address of the Budget location the car needs to be returned to.

We will send you an automatic reminder SMS before the rental car is due to return. 

In case you cannot return the car on time, you have the opportunity to extend the rental without attending the rental location. Please reply to our SMS with the new return date and make sure that the additional charges for the extension are available on your account. 

If your rental exceeds the 28 days, it means you have a long-term rental and a new rental agreement should be opened. Please see details here.

In case you would like to discuss your rental extension, you can send us an email or call us during working hours (Monday-Friday 9 AM – 4 PM, CET time +01:00), please make sure including your rental agreement number or the plate number of the car in your email or have this data available before the call.
