Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Caracas Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your visit 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 unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car in Caracas?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Caracas?
Most suppliers in Caracas set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to read through Thrifty's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Caracas?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Caracas. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Caracas vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Venezuela require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Venezuela. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Caracas. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Thrifty.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Caracas?
Caracas certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
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 Thrifty. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
