What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best deals on a Buffalo Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my vehicle in Buffalo?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Buffalo's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Buffalo is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Thrifty's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Buffalo?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Buffalo. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Buffalo are close to 31 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Buffalo trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 Buffalo. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank. But, 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 triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Buffalo has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Buffalo.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
