Fine print on the deal

  • Save $20 off your Prepaid Base Rate when you rent using Visa Checkout on Plus, save up to 35% with Prepay Base Rates.
  • Disclaimer: Offer valid thru 8/11/17 while supplies last. Must book at to redeem. Valid only in contiguous U.S. See full terms.
  • Valid at participating Budget locations in the Contiguous U.S.(excluding Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Virgin Island and Puerto Rico) on all car classes.
