Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Lynchburg?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Lynchburg. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. 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 be a more comfortable ride.

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. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger 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 Lynchburg.

Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank 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, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
