Budget Canberra Car Rental

Visiting Canberra brings you to the capital city of Australia, a planned city with many government agencies along with numerous cultural and social institutions. You will be able to easily move around the great city when you acquire a vehicle from Budget Rent a Car. This city was built after a compromise was reached between Sydney and Melbourne as to which one would be the capital city. It is laid out with many geometrical motifs, different from the regular street grid you see in most cities.

Budget has a wide variety of late model rental cars in Canberra to suit your travel needs, including the economy Suzuki Swift or similar, the standard Toyota Corolla Sedan or similar, the full size Toyota Camry or similar and the 8 seater Kia Carnival van or similar. Whatever your travel plans are we have the right rental car for you. Our fleet is constantly being updated with focus on your comfort and safety. If travelling in Canberra is new to you, make sure you add a portable GPS and Roadside Assistance in your car rental reservation to make your visit even easier.

And remember if you are a Qantas Frequent Flyer member, you can earn valuable points with when you rent a car or truck from Budget.

Explore Things to Do and See in Canberra

These geometrics surround man-made Lake Burley Griffin which lies in the middle of the city providing fabulous outdoor space. There are many walking paths, parks and much water activity to explore here. Many of the iconic buildings designed by winners in a worldwide architecture competition are nearby.

Visits to both of the Parliament Houses, both old and new will be very informative, these are the centre of the Australian government and have quite a history. There are tours available so you can view both the architecture and the government in action.

The Australian War Memorial is quite an amazing structure, the architecture is stunning and it houses a shrine, a world-class museum and an archive. It honours all of those Australians who have died fighting in wars.

Take your Budget car hire right over to the National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery to enjoy some of the best art and special exhibitions in the country. Both are right on the lake so you can take a nice stroll from one to the other.

Very near to the Galleries is Questacon, a fabulous science-learning centre with 200 educational and interactive activities and experiences. This is a wonderful place for children to learn all about the many aspects of the sciences.

If you want to get up on a mountain and get a fantastic view of the city, drive your Budget rental car right up to the Mount Ainslie Lookout. You get an amazing view of the city, the lake and mountains beyond, along with being able to see the geometric layout of the city.
