Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Bordeaux Thrifty rental car?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Bordeaux?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bordeaux's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux 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 policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Bordeaux?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bordeaux. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Bordeaux trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in France. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bordeaux. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Bordeaux. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, 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 return the car to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bordeaux definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Bordeaux.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
