Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Bathurst Thrifty car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my vehicle in Bathurst?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bathurst?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Bathurst is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Bathurst?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bathurst. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Bathurst vacation 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 Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bathurst. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Bathurst. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, 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 Bathurst?
Bathurst certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
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 car at a different Thrifty. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
