Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Dubai Thrifty car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Dubai?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Dubai?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Dubai is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Dubai?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Dubai. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Dubai getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does United Arab Emirates require car insurance?
In United Arab Emirates you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, 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 Dubai. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also 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. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Dubai. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Dubai certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Dubai.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Dubai?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different Thrifty. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
