What is the best type of car to rent in Raleigh?

As the capital of North Carolina, Raleigh is an important city for the state. If you’re in town to meet with a state senator or someone from the governor’s office, consider a luxury car rental to make a solid first impression. A minivan or passenger van rental might be better for a family vacation to the area’s many attractions. Whatever your needs may be, we have a car rental you’ll enjoy at Budget Rent a Car.

Van Rental

Both passenger van rental and minivan rental options are available with Budget. Rent a Honda Odyssey to take your family to Umstead State Park, or use a 12 or 15 passenger van to keep school groups together.

SUV Rental

The south is full of beautiful outdoor adventures just waiting for you to find them—and an SUV rental from Budget can help you get out there. Take your SUV car rental to Lake Crabtree County Park or Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve.

Long-Term Car Rental

If southern hospitality keeps you content in North Carolina, opt for a monthly car rental. Monthly or long-term car rentals through Budget are the most affordable extended rental option and give you all the time you need to explore Morrisville, Raleigh, and Durham.
