Budget Rent A Car Price Increase Expected Soon

Hi all,

Just thought I’d give you a quick heads up that we are preparing ourselves for an increase in price from Budget Rent A Car.

The terrible Tsunami that hit Japan in March 2011 is being blamed for the inevitable price increase as car hire usa supply has been effected. The knock on effect being a lack of vehicles leading to a rise in price. Estimated increase could be as much as 30%.

The increase looks to be targeting the summer months to make sure supply meets demand. will obviously look to make this increase as minimal as possible and we will still be offering the free additional driver within the inclusive rate.

At present only Budget seem to be effected but we will of course keep you up to date with other suppliers and confirm once Budget have advised us of any increase.
