What you need to know for the road
How do I get an Invercargill Thrifty rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Invercargill?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Invercargill?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Invercargill is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Thrifty's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Invercargill?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Invercargill. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's bags and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Invercargill getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Invercargill. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
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 pick up your Thrifty rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Invercargill definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Invercargill.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
