Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Auckland Thrifty car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be 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 in Auckland?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Auckland?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Auckland is 21. Make sure to check 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 vehicle I should get for my trip to Auckland?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Auckland. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Auckland trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally 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 call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Auckland. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 car for your trip to Auckland. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Auckland certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Auckland.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Auckland?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
