Thrifty Car Rentals in Orchard Park: What you need to know
Orchard Park is just one of many neighborhoods in Buffalo that are worth exploring, and, you'll need your own ride to check out everything there is to do in this city. Local buses, while affordable, drop you off far from where you wanted to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but smaller towns may not have regular service. Plus, if you plan to go all over Orchard Park and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.
If you want convenience for an affordable price, then you're in the right spot. Thrifty is one of the many great dealers we work with to not only get you the auto you want for your holiday, but also get you the best price.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the U.S.A.?
When cruising through Orchard Park or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Thrifty requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your automobile. Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage through Thrifty. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.
The major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) will generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Buffalo.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty, like many other rental car agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The deposit can vary greatly based on which vehicle you reserve. Additionally, make sure you have enough on your credit card to pay a deposit.
Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a filling station before bringing the rental car to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles in Orchard Park?
The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of the package. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental suppliers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you're planning to find out all that Buffalo has to offer, or even the United States.
