Budget Vanuatu has unveiled a fresh “new look”, easy to use bookings website that perfectly promotes discovering Vanuatu and experiencing island hospitality to Vanuatu’s growing international self-drive tourism market.

The dynamic new Budget Vanuatu website at www.rentalcarsvanuatu.com is mobile friendly, and features a streamlined, clean design aesthetic with easy to use navigation that makes selecting rental vehicles deceptively easy.

The Budget Vanuatu website introduces Budget’s new in-vehicle SOS Alarm feature, which ensures all drivers can easily trigger Budget’s 24-hour roadside assistance – even when drivers are out of mobile coverage.

“The SOS Alarm is unique to all Budget rental vehicles and means drivers are never alone when discovering Efate’s many amazing tourism highlights,” said Ms Emily Kell, Budget Vanuatu’s manager.

For international tourists, this important vehicle safety feature means they can have peace of mind exploring and can enjoy their “island time” in Vanuatu.

“No matter where they are on the island of Efate, if they get into trouble Budget Vanuatu can find them. We want our drivers to have relax and have a great time, and know they are in good hands with Budget Vanuatu.”

Supported by the Vanuatu Tourism Promotion Office and the Department of Tourism’s accreditation program, the website was developed by local businesses Savvy Vanuatu and Lionfish Design Studios.

Promoting safe driving and responsible tourism are integral to the Budget international brand, and were important communication considerations in the new website’s development.

Additionally, showcasing Vanuatu, promoting local discounts and Qantas Frequent Flyer incentives, competitive long-term rental contracts, and easy to understand rental terms and conditions were part of the website design brief. The site uses best practice digital expertise that effectively harnesses the latest cybercrime safe technology.

The new Budget Vanuatu website will be complimented by a social media campaign designed to drive international web traffic to the new website and Budget Vanuatu’s Facebook page.

“To celebrate our new website, Budget Vanuatu is running an online promotion with a 15% discount when you book using our brand-new website,” said Ms Kell.

Budget Vanuatu is proudly a local owned Vanuatu company and operates as an authorised Budget franchise via Budget Australia.

“When you hire a Budget Vanuatu rental vehicle, you can be certain you are receiving our best service, competitive pricing and a quality late model vehicle with low kilometres as per Budget’s global standards,” said Ms Kell.
