Location Information

When your family is planning a vacation to California, a great Santa Barbara rental car deal will help you get to all the fun places the kids want to see. Budget Rent A Car has a convenient location on East Haley Street, which is just a few miles from places such as the Los Padres National Forest and the city's zoo. Rental cars are an affordable way to get from your hotel to restaurants, the beach and downtown. The Budget Rent a Car East Haley Street location even offers pick-up service, so you don't have to worry about how to retrieve your rental car. Car rentals are recommended for families visiting Santa Barbara because the city is spread out over many miles and has hilly terrain. Your Budget car rental from East Haley Street will get you from the Channel Islands National Park where you can watch the birds and go geocaching to the Waterfront neighborhood with its many cafes, restaurants and shops. A Budget rental car gives your family the flexibility and space you need for a comfortable drive through the city. After departing East Haley Street Santa Barbara, you can stretch your legs and put on a DVD or tune into your favorite radio station to occupy the kids on your way to the historic mission building or the Stearns Wharf. Whether your stay in town involves a visit to the annual French Festival or the internationally acclaimed Arts and Crafts Show, book a minivan or sedan from the Budget East Haley Street location to help to ensure your entire family has a relaxing stay.
