Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Frankfurt Thrifty car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Frankfurt?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Frankfurt?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Frankfurt is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Frankfurt?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Frankfurt. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Frankfurt trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Frankfurt. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Frankfurt. Please be aware that the deposit will 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 advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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?
Frankfurt definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Frankfurt.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Frankfurt?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
