Budget’s short-term car rental rules

Here are the Budget’s rules for a short-term car rental (up to 30 days). If you plan to rent a car in Minsk more than 30 days, please check the Long-term car-rental rules section. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Driver’s age

The minimum age requirements for the renter and the additional drivers are 21 years for the А-G car groups, 25 years for the J, L groups.

Driver’s license

The driver must have at least 2 years of driving experience to rent a car regardless of the car group. Driver’s licenses printed with non-Roman alphabet (e.g. Arabic, Japanese, etc.) must be complemented by an International driver’s license.

Documents needed to collect the vehicle

To pick up the car at the Budget’s rental location, the driver must have a passport, a valid driving license, and a credit card.

Payment Methods

We take Visa, MasterCard, and cash. You can pay for the car at the rental location. Cash payments require a credit card valid at the time of the vehicle’s pick-up.

Insurance

We provide the car rental insurances, such as CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) and TP (Theft Protection). These insurances limit the driver’s responsibility in case of collision or theft respectively. Upon singing a Rental Agreement with the driver, the Budget’s agent will authorise a sum on the driver’s credit card (also called franchise or excess). In case of an accident, the driver will only have to pay the sum of the excess. If the vehicle is returned undamaged, the authorization will be refunded.

Damage Waivers (CDW and TP)

  • Groups, А, В-€ 650
  • Groups С, D, E, F, G-€ 900
  • Groups J, L-€ 1 200

The car insurances are conditional, meaning that the coverage depends on who is responsible for the damage caused to the vehicle. The purchase of CDW does not cover the undercarriage or tire damage. If the customer does not purchase the insurance, the customer will be responsible in the amount of the vehicle’s value.

SuperCover (Super CDW and TP)

The SuperCover allows the customer to rent a car with zero excess if the vehicle is damaged or stolen. SuperCover is an alternative to the damage waivers. It can be purchased at an additional daily charge.

  • Groups, А, В, C-€ 10 per day
  • Groups D, E-€ 15
  • Groups F, G-€ 20
  • Groups J, L-€ 30

SuperCover does not include the tire damage.

Additional drivers

The cost of including the additional drivers into the Rental Agreement is € 25 per driver during the entire rental period. Additional drivers must meet the minimum age requirements and have valid driving licenses.
