Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best prices on a Birmingham Thrifty rental car?

We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Birmingham?

Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Birmingham's minimum age to rent a car?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Thrifty's policy to know what the total cost is for you.

What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Birmingham?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Birmingham. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Birmingham trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Does the United Kingdom require car insurance?

In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Birmingham. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?

Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Thrifty.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Birmingham?

Birmingham definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Birmingham.

Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?

Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different Thrifty. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
