Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Dunedin Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Dunedin?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Dunedin?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Dunedin is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Dunedin?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Dunedin. Compact or economy automobiles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Dunedin trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Dunedin. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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 does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Dunedin?
Dunedin definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Dunedin.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Dunedin?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
