What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best prices on a George Thrifty car rental?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in George?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in George?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in George is 21. Take time to review Thrifty's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to George?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit George. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their George vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on 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 reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve 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 return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
George certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
