What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best deals on a Madison Thrifty car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Madison?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Madison's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Madison is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Madison?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Madison. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Madison are close to 30 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Madison trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Madison. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase 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 rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Madison?
Madison has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Wisconsin has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Madison.
Does Madison Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Thrifty. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
