What you need to know before you go

How do I find the best rates on an Inverness Thrifty car rental?

We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Inverness?

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

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

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Inverness is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Thrifty's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Inverness?

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Inverness. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Inverness getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Scotland?

In Scotland you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Inverness. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.

Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?

We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Thrifty.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

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

Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?

Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
