Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Lafayette's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, however you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Lafayette. If you are looking to add some fun to your Lafayette trip, you can also head to Tropicanoe Cove and spend a day taking on the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
