What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Cornwall Thrifty car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But booking 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.
What do I need have with me when I get my vehicle in Cornwall?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cornwall?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Cornwall is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check 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 Cornwall?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cornwall. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Cornwall vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cornwall. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cornwall certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Thrifty. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
