Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Reading Thrifty car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Reading?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Reading's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Reading is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Thrifty's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Reading?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Reading. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Reading average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Reading getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Reading. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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 reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Reading has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Pennsylvania has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Reading. If you are looking to add a little excitement to your Reading trip, you can also drive to Blue Falls Grove and enjoy an afternoon taking on the park's attractions.
Does Reading Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
