Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best deals on a Charlottesville Thrifty car rental?

What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Charlottesville?

You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Charlottesville?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Charlottesville is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Thrifty's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.

What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Charlottesville?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Charlottesville. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Charlottesville are around 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Charlottesville getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some 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 Charlottesville. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?

We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Charlottesville's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Charlottesville.
