Location Information

Our central Milwaukee office near Michigan Street and the Grand Avenue Mall is a very convenient location for a car rental in downtown Milwaukee. Sitting a block south of the Wisconsin Center in the center of the city and 8 miles north of our General Mitchell International Airport location, this is definitely an ideal place to pick up your car rental in Milwaukee. Want to spend some time enjoying the area before you pick up one of our high-quality rental cars? Our Milwaukee location is within walking distance of the Shops of Grand Avenue, the historical Zeidler Union Square, and the Milwaukee Public Museum. When you choose to rent a car, you can easily access the sights all over town, including the Harley-Davidson Museum and the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Need some help deciding what to do while you’re in town? At Budget, we want to make every aspect of your visit easy and enjoyable, which is why we offer a guide for business trips, as well as a list of top attractions in town, so you can be sure you won’t miss out on anything.

Cheap Car Rentals

If you’re in need of a economical option when renting a car, then Budget Car Rental is the right place for you. We have a wide selection of cheap rental cars.

Van Rental

A visit to Milwaukee with a group of 12 to 15 people deserves a van rental so your party can navigate the city together. Check out Budget’s van rental options to find the best one for you.

One-way Car Rental

Are you starting a road trip in Milwaukee? Take advantage of our one-way car rentals and take to the open road. You can return the vehicle at a Budget location in your destination city.

SUVs are an excellent option when renting a car, especially if you’re traveling with a large family. With options available from crossovers like the Volvo Xc60 to a full-size SUV like the Chevy Tahoe, it’s easy to find one you’ll enjoy driving.
