    Car Hire with Budget - for low-cost, high-quality rentals

    Budget Car Hire - Auto EuropeHead-quartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, Budget Rent a Car was originally founded in Los Angeles in 1958 after a relatively modest investment of US$10,000 by forward-thinking businessman Morris Mirkin, whose idea was to create a brand that would appeal to both the 'budget-minded' and 'value-conscious' customer.

    From a fleet of just ten cars, the firm quickly flourished and subsequently grew in the 1960s both nationally and internationally and today the company offers more than 3,300 pick-up and drop-off locations in 120 countries all over the world. Budget is a growth-orientated car rental company with a commitment to delivering a high-quality product and all-round friendly service as well as offering the best value in the market.

    Budget's policy to adopt new ideas and state-of-the-art innovations has greatly boosted customer satisfaction over the years and continues to help the company further strengthen its profitability. Budget Rent a Car was first acquired by Transamerica Corporation before being sold to Gibbons, Green and van Amerongen Ltd in 1986, a year before the company made its first public stock offering in 1987. Budget then became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Avis Group, one of the largest car rental operations in the world which in 2015 also completed the acquisition of the Maggiore Group, Italy's fourth-largest vehicle rental company.

    Even in times of COVID-19 you can safely book a car hire from Budget due to its strict health and safety measures.
