What you need to know before you go

How do I get a Lyon 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 keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Lyon?

You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Lyon's minimum age to rent a car?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Lyon is 23. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Thrifty's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.

What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Lyon?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lyon. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in France?

In France you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to . Additionally, 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 does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Lyon. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?

We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car 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 it back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Lyon definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Lyon.

Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Lyon?

Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
