Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Bologna Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I get my vehicle in Bologna?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bologna's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Bologna is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Thrifty's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Bologna?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Bologna. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Bologna trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Italy?
In Italy you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bologna certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Bologna Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
