Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Sandton Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Sandton?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Sandton's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Sandton is 21. Take time to go over Thrifty's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Sandton?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Sandton. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through 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 car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Sandton. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full 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 near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Sandton?
Sandton certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Sandton.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Sandton?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
