Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Fort Wayne?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Fort Wayne's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Fort Wayne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Thrifty's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Fort Wayne?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Fort Wayne. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Fort Wayne are close to 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Fort Wayne getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Fort Wayne. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Fort Wayne has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Indiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Fort Wayne.

Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another Thrifty. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
