Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Guadalajara Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But booking ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Guadalajara?
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 Guadalajara?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Guadalajara is 21. Take time to check Thrifty's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Guadalajara?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Guadalajara. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for everyone's belongings and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Guadalajara vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Mexico?
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. You can purchase additional insurance through Thrifty for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 to Guadalajara. Please note 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 a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Guadalajara definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another Thrifty. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
