We accept all major credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, Diners Club) for the security deposit. Debit cards, cash, and checks are not accepted as valid forms of security deposit.

The security deposit amount, along with all rental charges, must be chargeable at the time of rental. This ensures that the total amount is covered and helps safeguard against any potential damages or losses.

We accept the following methods of payment: Debit Card, VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, and cash. We do not accept cheques as a valid form of payment.
Rental credits are provided for all cancellations made no later than 24 hours before the scheduled pickup date. The rental credits can be used for future rentals.

If you wish to reschedule your reservation, a minimum notice of 24 hours before the pickup date is required. Failure to provide the required notice will result in a 50% rescheduling fee.
We understand that circumstances may change, and we strive to accommodate our customers to the best of our abilities. However, please note that last-minute cancellations or rescheduling may result in inconvenience and loss of potential bookings for other customers.

We can deliver your rentals within a 100km radius from our location. We thoroughly test all our equipment before delivery to ensure they are in perfect working condition. Please make sure to inspect the equipment list with the driver during drop-off.
We guarantee that our equipment is tested and well-protected from damage during transportation. The client is responsible for any damage or issues that may occur while the equipment is in their possession.

If any rental equipment experiences a malfunction, please promptly notify us. Failure to report any equipment issues, problems, damages, or shortages before returning the rented equipment may result in charges at the standard rate, including any applicable damage or replacement fees. It is our responsibility to ensure that the equipment you rent is complete and in proper working condition when it leaves our facility. However, it is your responsibility to use and handle it correctly. Budget Camera is not liable for improper use or insufficient knowledge of our rental equipment. Instruction manuals are available upon request. It's worth noting that most issues can often be resolved over the phone. In our extensive experience renting photo, video, and digital imaging equipment, we have rarely needed to arrange equipment returns, replacements, or on-site service visits. Should a service call be necessary and operator error is found to be the cause of the issue, a service charge will be applied in addition to the standard rental fee.
