What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Melbourne Thrifty rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving your car well 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 unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my vehicle in Melbourne?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne is 21. Take time to review Thrifty's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Melbourne?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Melbourne. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Melbourne vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Melbourne. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We suggest a full to full 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Thrifty.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Melbourne?
Melbourne has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've gone out downtown or gone out downtown. If you are wishing to add some fun to your Melbourne trip, you can also go to Andretti Thrill Park and enjoy a day taking on the park's attractions.
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 another Thrifty. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
