ABOUT BUDGET CANADA
Whether you own your own vehicle or not, there are plenty of situations where renting a vehicle just makes sense. For instance, imagine landing in a major international airport preparing to travel with your bags in tow and trying to catch a cab along with hundreds of other travellers doing the same... Enter Budget Canada. The international car rental has been a familiar face in the car rental industry for years, earning a great reputation with customers across the globe.
Founded in 1958 in Los Angeles by Morris Mirkin, the company started out with a small fleet of 10 cars. Offering lower daily and per-mile rates than its competitors, the company initially focused on airport rentals before expanding. After changing hands several times, the company was purchased in 2002 by Cedant Corporation, which also owns competitor Avis.
Today, Budget is a bustling rental business with a reputation for excellent customer service and competitive rates. With close to 3,000 locations worldwide, chances are, there's a convenient Budget rental waiting for you whether you're traveling within Canada or venturing out abroad!
