What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on a Grand Rapids Thrifty car rental?

What do I need to bring when I get my car in Grand Rapids?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Grand Rapids?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Grand Rapids is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Grand Rapids?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Grand Rapids. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Grand Rapids getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Grand Rapids.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Grand Rapids?
Grand Rapids has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Michigan has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Grand Rapids.
