What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best deals on a Richmond Thrifty car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Richmond?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Richmond?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Richmond is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Thrifty's policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Richmond?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Richmond. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Richmond vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Richmond. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on 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 book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Richmond. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Richmond?
Richmond has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Virginia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Richmond.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Richmond?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
