2) If Budget in CR is closed go to the nearest dealership of the make of the rental vehicle. A Chevy van would be taken to the Chevy Dealership. Budget vehicles are under warranty and the dealership should be able to establish that with the VIN number.
If a dealership is unavailable i.e. it is closed or there is none in the area, call Budget Roadside Assistance 1-800-354-2847. They should be able to provide another vehicle for you. Make sure they know you rented your vehicle from Budget in Cedar Rapids which is privately owned, and therefore no paperwork in “their” system
The athletic department vans are also available to be rented but on a limited basis around the athletics schedule. If you are interested in this option it is still necessary to go to the Information Desk first to fill out a form. There is also a supplemental form that the athletic department will ask you to fill out. The cost is $.55 per mile including a gas card that will later be billed to your group.
