Is Budget taking any additional precautions to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus?

We are closely monitoring the information shared by the World Health Organization concerning advice on how to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

To help protect our staff and customers we are encouraging regular hand washing, and the use of hand sanitizer, where available.  We’ve also enhanced the already robust cleaning techniques of our vehicles after each rental.  In particular, we are paying special attention to the places people touch such as steering wheels, door handles and other hard surfaces. Please read all the measures we have taken.

We advise all our customers to keep updated on the latest developments from the World Health Organisation and Greece's National Public Health Organisation.
