Renting a car from Thrifty: FAQs

Want to know more about car rentals with Thrifty? Read on for some answers to the most common questions we get asked.

How old do you have to be to rent a car with Thrifty?

In some countries and states the minimum car rental age is lower or higher, but the standard minimum is 21. If you’re 24 or under, you’ll usually pay a surcharge and may not be able to rent trucks, luxury cars, or certain other vehicles.

In the US, no one is too old to rent a car, but in other locations there may be an upper age limit, or at least a surcharge for older drivers.

Which cars can you rent from Thrifty?

In addition to economy models, Thrift has a good range of convertibles, luxury cars, mini vans, vans, trucks, and SUVs.

The particular models available might be different in different states and countries, but the Chevrolet Spark is a good example of the kind of economy car you can expect. Meanwhile, luxury rentals might include the likes of the Chrysler 300, and the Ford Mustang might be a typical convertible.

What documents do I need to rent from Thrifty?

Your driver’s license is, obviously, key. You will usually be expected to pay with a credit card, although debit card payments may be available in some branches, provided you can show some additional documentation – check ahead to find out what is needed.

Renting a Thrifty car abroad? You’ll be asked for your passport. In certain places, an international driving permit is needed, so again, it’s worth finding out about this in advance.
