What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get an East London Thrifty car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But reserving your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to read 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 rental in East London?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in East London?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in East London is 21. Take time to go over Thrifty's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to East London?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in East London. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their East London trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in South Africa. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to East London. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in East London?
East London certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in East London.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
