Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best rates on a Rio De Janeiro Thrifty car rental?

We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

What should I bring with me when I pick up my vehicle in Rio De Janeiro?

Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Rio De Janeiro's minimum age to rent a car?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Rio De Janeiro is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Rio De Janeiro?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Rio De Janeiro. Compact or economy automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Brazil?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in Brazil. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to . Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental 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 return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle topped off. 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 find a filling station before you return the car to Thrifty.

Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Rio De Janeiro?

Rio De Janeiro certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Rio De Janeiro.

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 at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
