What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Lexington Thrifty rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my car in Lexington?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Lexington?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Lexington is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Thrifty's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Lexington?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Lexington. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Lexington vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Lexington. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Lexington definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
