Here is a CDC page about diseases that can be carried by guinea pigs and rabbits. Although it's for human health, many would make guinea pigs sick, like salmonella, so you can see what different diseases can be carried. However, it is very rare for most of these to be carried by them, so don't worry too much. https://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/pets/small-mammals/index.html

I never had rabbits but what I have gleaned from info here from those who do, rabbits are also social animals and appreciate living in pairs. Is that correct? If so, it may be a consideration when thinking of getting a rabbit as a pet. I know that female rabbits should always be spayed to prevent cancers of the reproduction organs later in life. So that cost should be expected.
