BUDGET Car Rental Services at Heraklion Airport

The island of Crete is filled with many beautiful sights and attractions, and a rented vehicle is highly recommended for travelling. Budget Car Rental is one of the car hire companies with desks at Heraklion Airport, and are often chosen for their ‘budget’ prices.

Heraklion Airport consists of a single terminal building, which can become very busy over the summer months. There is no need for further transport in order to reach the car hire companies at the airport, because they are all located within the arrivals area. The rented cars are also parked nearby, within easy walking distance of the terminal building. At this rental location, Budget is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and over public holidays as well. This means that you can collect or return your rented car at any time of the day and night, which is most convenient for passengers arriving or departing at awkward times. Many passengers arrange their vehicle from Budget when they arrive at the airport, but the best way to ensure that the car you need is available, is to make an early online reservation. Budget's website is found at www.budget.com.

An advanced booking is especially recommended when the airport is busier, during the summer, and if you require any special type of vehicle or equipment to use within your hired car. Additional items of equipment may include baby, or child seats and a satellite navigation system. In Greece, children younger than ten years of age should always travel in the rear seats of the vehicle, and little children should be safely secured within their own seat. If you are planning to do some travelling on the island, and will be visiting the towns and resort areas of Crete, a GPS navigation system is most useful. Even just for driving in Heraklion, a navigation system is recommended for anyone who is unfamiliar with the region.

At Budget Heraklion Airport, one-way car hires are suitable for passengers who are arriving at Heraklion Airport, but who will not be returning to this airport. Maybe because their departure flight will leave from another airport on the island. Budget one way rentals may cost an additional amount if the vehicle is returned to another city, but can be free of charge if returned to a nearer rental location. For disabled drivers, assistance is provided by hand controls. Hand controls are ideal for drivers with a lower limb deficiency, as the device is made to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. It does not however control the blinkers, car lights, windshield wipers or any other function of the vehicle, such as cruise control. Drivers who are in need of hand controls should make their reservation early, at least 48 hours in advance of arriving at the airport.

Customers have a wide range of vehicles from which to choose at Budget, starting from smaller cars ideal for city driving to larger SUV's and passenger vans. Smaller cars, such as the Chevy Matiz and Fiat Panda, generally come with much lower prices than the larger, or more specialty type vehicles available. Customers also find them to be practical, easy to drive and very economical on fuel consumption. They have a manual transmission and may come with air conditioning. Other smaller cars available from Budget are the Opel Corsa and Citroen C3.

The Renault Megane, Opel Vectra and Hyundai Accent are larger vehicles suitable for the averaged sized family with a couple of luggage items. These vehicles are found in the Intermediate and Compact categories. Vehicles such as the Ford Mondeo and Hyundai Matrix are other vehicles found in the Intermediate category. For those customers who love their SUV's, the Suzuki Jimny is available in the Compact SUV category and the Toyota Rav 4 is another popular choice for a larger SUV seating up to five passengers. Larger vehicles seating between seven and nine passengers include the VW Caddy Van and VW Transporter, with lots of room for luggage as well.

On Budget's website, customers will find all the rental terms and conditions which need to be followed at the Heraklion Airport car rental location. The primary renter should be at least 23 years of age in order to hire from most car categories, but there are car groups that have a minimum age restriction of 25. Younger drivers will pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of ‘young drivers insurance’, and this is also applicable to younger additional drivers listed on the rental contract. Drivers must be able to show a valid drivers license from their country of residence, and have a major credit card in order to pay for the rental period. Adequate insurance should also be arranged for the vehicle.
