Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Cannes Thrifty car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving well ahead of your trip 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 pick up my rental car in Cannes?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Cannes's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Cannes is 19. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cannes?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cannes. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Cannes trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Cannes. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cannes?
Cannes definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Cannes Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Thrifty. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
