How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bendigo?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Bendigo is 21. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Bendigo?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bendigo. Compact or economy cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Bendigo trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Australia. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bendigo. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Bendigo. Please be aware that the deposit will 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 encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Thrifty.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Bendigo?
Bendigo certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Bendigo?
