What you need to know before you go
How do I get an Orlando Thrifty rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my car in Orlando?
Be sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Orlando's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Orlando is 21. Take time to go over Thrifty's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Orlando?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Orlando. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Orlando are close to 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car 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 Orlando vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Orlando. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. 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?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Orlando has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Orlando. If you are searching for more excitement on your Orlando vacation, you can head to one of the 12 theme parks in the area. Embrace your inner child, or take the family to Aquatica SeaWorld's Waterpark or CoCo Key.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Orlando?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
