Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Mackay Thrifty rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Mackay?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Mackay?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Mackay is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Mackay?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Mackay. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Mackay getaway can choose a higher-end car model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Mackay. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. 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 triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Mackay?
Mackay definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Mackay.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Thrifty. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
