What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best deals on a Fairbanks Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car in Fairbanks?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Fairbanks's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Fairbanks is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Fairbanks?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Fairbanks. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Fairbanks trip can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Fairbanks. Otherwise, as a United States 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 requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Fairbanks's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've had a night out in downtown Fairbanks or gone out in Fairbanks's downtown.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Fairbanks?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
