Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Raleigh Thrifty rental car at a great price?

You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Raleigh?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Raleigh 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 policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Raleigh?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Raleigh. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's bags and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Raleigh 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 the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or 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 Raleigh. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book 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. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. 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?
Raleigh has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else North Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Raleigh. If you need to add a bit fun to your Raleigh trip, you can also drive to Adventure Landing and spend an evening riding the park's attractions.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Raleigh?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
