Frequently asked questions

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

We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be 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 Adelaide?

Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

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

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Adelaide is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.

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

That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Adelaide. Compact or economy cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Adelaide trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?

In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Adelaide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Thrifty requires a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. 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 Adelaide?

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

Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Adelaide?

Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Thrifty. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
