Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best prices on a Bethesda Thrifty car rental?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip 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.

What do I need have with me when I get my vehicle in Bethesda?

Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bethesda?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Bethesda is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Thrifty's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Bethesda?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Bethesda. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Bethesda trip can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?

Thrifty requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Bethesda. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?

We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Thrifty.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Bethesda's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Bethesda.
