Whether you’re driving across the country or just taking a spin around the block, Budget encourages all passengers to buckle up for safety! Please remember, it’s the driver's responsibility to comply with all applicable seat belt and child restraint safety laws.
Child safety seat rentals are about $13 US per day with a maximum of $65 US per rental. Budget uses convertible child safety seats that serve as an infant (5-20 pounds) restraint in a rear-facing configuration or as a toddler (20-40 pounds) restraint in a forward-facing configuration. Many Budget locations also offer booster seats for youngsters 40-80 pounds. Seats can vary in model and style, so please contact the rental location in advance if you have specific questions.
Due to liability issues, Budget personnel are not permitted to install child safety seats into vehicles for customers. However, upon request, Budget will provide written instructions on proper installation. Other questions regarding installation should be addressed directly with the rental location.
At corporate-operated locations, if your child safety seat reservation is made 48 hours prior to pick up, we guarantee availability. Within 48 hours of pick up and at licensee-owned locations, your request will be held with your reservation, but rental is made on a first-come, first-served basis. In that case, availability is not guaranteed.
