Is Hertz cheaper than Budget?

Though it depends on the location and rental cars selection, Budget generally has cheaper car hire rates than Hertz.

Is it cheaper to rent a car for a week?

Typically, it is cheaper to rent a car for a week rather than day by day because car rental rates are not stable and reserving the vehicle longer term will lock in the price. Booking future rentals some months early also generally keep the prices at their lowest.
