Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Geelong Thrifty rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make 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 get my car rental in Geelong?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Geelong?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Geelong is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Geelong?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Geelong. Compact or economy cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Geelong getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer 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. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Geelong. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We recommend 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 it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Geelong?
Geelong certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Geelong.
Does Geelong Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
