While every rental car company has an app these days, they are not created equal. Here's why the Budget Rent a Car app is worth a download.
The app is free and available for both iPhone and Android devices.
Key Features on the Budget Rent a Car App
The Budget app lets you reserve, modify and cancel reservations straight from your mobile device. You can view your upcoming reservation and store your RapidRez number to use in new reservations.
You can view real-time price estimates (including all taxes, fees and surcharges), coupon calculation and the costs for over-the-counter products like insurance and other add-ons.
Run into trouble on the road? From the app, you can also contact roadside assistance.
You can also view your past rental history and find Budget location information, hours of operation, addresses and phone numbers.
Fastbreak members can see also list a favorite airport, and select a default car category.
In short, Budget's app is much like sister company Avis's exceptional app with one big difference related to the two company's loyalty programs. Unlike the Avis Preferred program, which is designed to allow members to earn free rental days, Budget FastBreak does not allow members to earn rewards.
