If you want to see everything Santa Ana has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Thrifty. Stop spending your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own car, you can go anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your next getaway to California more enjoyable with a Thrifty car rental.

CarRentals.com takes care of all the speed bumps

CarRentals.com works with several of the most dependable rental car dealers, like Thrifty, to not only get you the vehicle you need for your upcoming business trip, but also get you the best price. We can help your visit get off on the right foot.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Santa Ana Thrifty car rental at a great price?

We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.

What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in Santa Ana?

You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Santa Ana?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Santa Ana is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Thrifty's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Santa Ana?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santa Ana. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Santa Ana trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States 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 reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Santa Ana. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.

Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Santa Ana has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Santa Ana.

Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Santa Ana?

Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.

Reserve your ride today!

With so much to do and see in Santa Ana, having access to your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of California, you can go wherever you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or memorizing a bus schedule.

Before you head out of town, book your Thrifty Santa Ana car rental and take off to all the items on your itinerary. Reserve through CarRentals.com and hit the streets in Santa Ana, California.
