What you need to know about car rentals in Alexandria
How do I find the best deals on an Alexandria Thrifty car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. 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 Alexandria?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Alexandria's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Alexandria is 21. Take time to review Thrifty's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Alexandria?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Alexandria. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Alexandria trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, 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 Alexandria. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Alexandria's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've gone out in Alexandria's downtown or checked off all the activities in Alexandria.
Does Alexandria Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
