Location Information

The Budget Car Rental at Albany International Airport (ALB) will have you touring around New York’s state capital in no time. The convenience and selection you’ll find here is unparalleled, and the Budget counter is open until 12 am daily. That means you can hop into the perfect ALB car rental and start exploring Albany as soon as you land.

Albany is a midsized government and banking hub, and you’ll often find more people here for business trips than for leisure, but that doesn’t mean the city doesn’t have activity and fun to offer.

See all of Albany’s sights in one of Budget’s airport car rentals, including the New York State Capitol, which took 30 years to build. Also visit the Empire State Plaza, one of America’s most ambitious urban renewal projects. A complex of government buildings in the downtown core, it cost $2 billion to build, and features a performing arts center and impressive views of the Hudson Valley from the 42nd floor.

For more intimate accommodations, you’ll find the Morgan State House Inn a reprieve from some of the larger hotel chains. Visit North Pearl Street, one of Albany’s most happening strips, for dinner and dancing late into the evening.

Albany airport car rentals from Budget come in a variety of styles. Opt for a sedan or sportier coupe if you’re traveling with a partner or on your own. Traveling with family? We have a great selection of SUVs, minivans and other high-occupancy vehicles as well.

Budget’s fleet of Albany International Airport rental cars help make an ordinary trip extraordinary, especially if you sign up for the Fastbreak program.
