What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best deals on an Oak Bay Thrifty car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to check 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 vehicle in Oak Bay?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Oak Bay?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Oak Bay is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Oak Bay?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Oak Bay. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Oak Bay trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in Canada. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Oak Bay. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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 book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Oak Bay. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We recommend 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Oak Bay definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Oak Bay.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
