What you need to know about car rentals in Gothenburg
How do I find the best rates on a Gothenburg Thrifty car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Gothenburg?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Gothenburg's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Gothenburg is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Thrifty's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Gothenburg?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Gothenburg. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Gothenburg trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Sweden?
In Sweden you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Gothenburg. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through 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. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Gothenburg. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Gothenburg?
Gothenburg certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Gothenburg.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Gothenburg?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
