Budget Rent A Car has entered the Vietnam market. Beginning Tuesday, Budget vehicles, complete with chauffeurs, will be made available from hotels and Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Airport. With this ramp into Vietnam, Budget becomes the country’s first international standard car rental service.
Customers can choose from a fleet that includes Toyota Camrys and Innovas, Ford Everests and Escapes and Mercedes-Benz sedans and vans. Few foreigners drive on Vietnam’s busy highways and streets; to address this issue Budget will provide each customer in Vietnam with a well-trained native driver who’ll function as a traveling concierge, with strong English-language skills and knowledge of the immediate region. Cars are priced from $69 to $249 per day and come equipped with amenities such as mobile phone, international newspapers and magazines, chilled water and towels and 24-hour customer-service support.
Vietnam bookings can be made online at www.budget.com.vn.
