Budget in Downtown Santa Ana

If you need a car rental in Santa Ana, Budget Rent a Car can help. Located right in downtown Santa Ana, we’re near plenty of delicious places to eat so you can refuel from your travels before exploring the city.

Within minutes of picking up your rental, you can be at the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve, which offers plenty of hiking and biking trails, including the Bayview Trail and the Big Canyon Trailhead. You can also explore the many bird species this preserve offers.

We have plenty of other parks near our Budget Rent a Car location, including Arroyo Park, University Meadow Park, and Bark Park. Not feeling too outdoorsy? You can also visit the Lyon Air Museum, a great place to watch planes take off.

We understand downtown Santa Ana might not be your final stop. If you’re flying elsewhere, you can schedule to drop off your Santa Ana car rental at Budget at SNA airport or Budget at LGB airport. Besides these two locations, we have spots all across the country that are ideal places to finish a one-way car rental.
