Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on an Ilheus Thrifty car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car in Ilheus?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Ilheus?
Most suppliers in Ilheus require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Ilheus?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Ilheus. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Ilheus trip can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Brazil?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Brazil. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ilheus. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Ilheus. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, 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?
Ilheus definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Ilheus.
Does Ilheus Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
