    Car hire with Budget: Everything you need to know

    Budget Car Hire - Auto Europe

    Budget is based in Parsippany, New Jersey, USA. It forms part of the Avis-Budget Group. The company was originally founded in 1958 by Mr Morris Mirkin to the sum of $10,000. The aim was to create a brand that would appeal to people that valued good service, but at an affordable rate. Till this day, a car hire with Budget guarantees the best balance between quality and price.

    Starting with just 10 cars, Budget quickly grew in the 1960s to its current international presence with a large fleet. With more than 3,300 counters, in over 120 countries, Budget is dedicated in offering the very best rental rates, service and friendly atmosphere. Adopting new ideas and state-of-the-art innovations is in the company’s DNA. Its loyal customer base has allowed the company to strengthen its bottom line and go from strength to strength. Budget was eventually acquired by Transamerica Corporation and then sold to Gibbons, Green and Van Amerongen Ltd in 1986. Budget became a fully owned subsidiary of the Avis-Budget Group - which also went onto acquiring the Maggiore Group. Together the group forms part of one of the largest car rental suppliers in the world.

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