Renting a car with Thrifty hire

Thrifty belongs to the huge Hertz car hire family. Boasting countless car rental locations across the globe, Thrifty has outlets in Eastern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and mainland Southeast Asia. With such a lost list of branches, the company caters to all kinds of family holiday, adventure, and business destinations. Thrifty has professional partnership programs with American Airlines and Alaska Airlines, along with their own Blue Chip program that gives express pickup and other bonuses to returning customers.

Where does Thrifty car rental offer its cars?

From a modestly sized vendor with just 149 locations in 1999, Thrifty has vastly expanded to become a huge international company with 1000s of places to pick up a Thrifty car. It's now among the largest renters of vehicles in the Middle East region, for example, with a huge fleet waiting to get you out from the bustling airport concourses and into the UFO-like cities of the UAE and its shifting deserts. Be sure to check out rates for Thrifty Abu Dhabi or Thrifty Thrifty Dubai International Airport and see how they compare to prices from other rental companies in these locations. Back in Europe, you can consider deals from Thrifty Krakow and other car rental vendors if you're after an exciting city break that's steeped in medieval history but also want to escape for a spell to the spiked Tatra Mountains and their sparkling lakes or snowy ski fields.

What cars and features come with Thrifty car hire?

With Thrifty’s diverse offerings, you can get a small car for a few days of hopping between beaches, or a luxury vehicle to tour VIPs on an important business trip. Compact cars with 3 doors and a little trunk space are the perfect pick for travelling couples who just need something to get them from the arrivals hall to their romantic villa. Family cars and SUVs tend to be a tad pricier but mean you can bag something with 5 doors and more room for all that extra luggage. They are a popular choice in summer sun destinations like those on the edge of the Mediterranean. Car insurance will be required, so do check whether you are already covered for car rentals with your own car or credit card insurance. Check the mileage situation as well – unrestricted travel means you can discover wide swathes of your destination without any extra costs. Full-to-full fuel policies are also cost-effective, as long as you remember to fill the tank before coming back. Optional extras like booster seats for the little ones and sat navs so you don't get lost are also recommended for some travellers.
