PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, many American families will be taking to the roads. In fact, according to the Associated Press, “2016 is shaping up to be the summer of the road trip.” Let Budget Car Rental help you make the most of the season when you hit the road.
- Put the miles on our car – not yours. With more than 1,100 locations across the United States, Budget is conveniently located and has a range of vehicles designed to meet the needs of your family. These include the compact Ford Focus, convertibles such as the Ford Mustang and kid-friendly vehicles like the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan or the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV.
- Book your rental vehicle early. Vehicle availability can become limited as the summer heats up, particularly in leisure destinations.
- Prepay and save. Budget renters can save 15 percent or more when they select the “Pay Now” rate on budget.com.
- Plan your travel route. Budget offers Global Positioning System (GPS) devices with guidance by Garmin®. The units feature an array of navigation options, including local points of interest such as hotels, restaurants, gas stations and ATMs, a simple user interface, high-quality maps, audible turn-by-turn directions spoken in multiple languages and Bluetooth hands-free calling capability.
- Keep everyone entertained. SiriusXM is available in the majority of vehicles in the Budget fleet across the United States. The factory-installed in-dashboard satellite radios provide renters with easy access to programming for every member of the family, including commercial-free music; premier sports talk and live events; comedy for the family and adults only; live news; exclusive talk and entertainment; and a wide variety of Latin music, sports and talk programming.
