What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best deals on a Banff Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my car rental in Banff?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Banff?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Banff is 21. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Banff?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Banff. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Banff getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Canada require car insurance?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Banff. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Banff. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We encourage a full tank 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 return the car to Thrifty.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Banff?
Banff certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Banff Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
