The long grind between Labor Day and Thanksgiving is a great time to travel because lines are shorter, tickets and hotels cost less, and you avoid the crowds typical of summer travel. Now’s the time to book a fall weekend getaway with Budget Car Rental and build memories that will last right through the holiday season. Renting from Budget allows moms feel secure about a road trip because they know Budget offers new vehicles that are large enough for the whole family and all the luggage and gear, and you can save up to 35% by pre-paying for your rental online at Budget.com.  Budget’s premium SUVs that come with an onboard DVD player keep the kids happy and busy during the drive.
