Budget locations in New Zealand can accept cash, travellers cheques, money orders and personal cheques as payment, but these must be issued in New Zealand Dollars and can only be used when you return the vehicle.
When you start your rental a valid and accepted credit or debit card must be presented as credit identification.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club credit and debit cards. These cards must show the customer's name, signature and card number, with their applicable logo. Prepaid and Reloadable debit cards and Gift cards, as well as Travel cards and EFTPOS cards are not accepted.
International visitors who have a prepaid voucher can pay cash up front for any insurance excess or optional extras (e.g. Excess Reduction, GPS, Child Safety Seats, Roadside Safety Net etc.), and upon return of the vehicle for any miscellaneous charges (e.g. fuel, additional rental hours or days, one-way fees etc.).
Budget rates do not include fuel. Budget offers three options for fuel:
The prepaid fuel option allows the renter the option of purchasing, a full tank of fuel at a price competitive with the prevailing local service station rates for regular unleaded petrol. This eliminates the need to refill the tank before the vehicle is returned. There is no credit given for fuel remaining in the vehicle at the time the vehicle is returned so the renter should return the vehicle with as little fuel remaining as possible.
The prepaid fuel purchase option must be selected at the beginning of the rental.
