Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Hobart Thrifty car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my rental car in Hobart?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Hobart?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Hobart is 21. Make sure to check Thrifty's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Hobart?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Hobart. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Hobart trip can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hobart. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with 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 book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Hobart. Please note that the deposit can 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?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Hobart?
Hobart certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Hobart?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
