Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Montreal Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in Montreal?
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Montreal?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Montreal is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time 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 Montreal?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Montreal. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Montreal getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Canada require car insurance?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty requires 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 Montreal. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return your 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Montreal definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
