How to Earn Points with Budget
Budget targets the price-conscious leisure renter rather than the frequent business traveler. Consequently, Fastbreak offers some—but not all—of the benefits associated with it’s sister company Avis’s Preferred program. However, it usually comes with a lower daily rate.
The Budget Fastbreak is mainly an express rental service rather than a rewards program where you earn points toward free rentals. However, they do have a program called Budget Bucks that allows you to earn coupons toward future rentals.
Budget Small Business Program
Budget also has a small business program. This will allow your small or mid-sized business to save on every paid car rental with the Budget Small Business Program. Enroll for free to immediately receive special rates.
