Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on an Islip Thrifty car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my rental car in Islip?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Islip's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Islip 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 what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Islip?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Islip. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Islip getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Islip. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Islip?
Islip has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Islip.
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. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
