Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Rochester Thrifty rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car in Rochester?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Rochester's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Rochester 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 policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Rochester?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Rochester. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. Commute times in Rochester average 28 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Rochester getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger 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 Rochester. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Rochester. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Thrifty.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Rochester?
Rochester has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've explored New York's capital or checked out New York's capital.
