Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Pretoria?
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Pretoria?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Pretoria is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Pretoria?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Pretoria. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. However, if you return the 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 fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Pretoria certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Pretoria.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
