Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Scranton Thrifty rental car?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my rental car in Scranton?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Scranton's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Scranton is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Scranton?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Scranton. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Scranton are around 26 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 pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Scranton getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi 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 card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Scranton. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book 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 reserve your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Scranton. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Scranton has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Pennsylvania has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Scranton.
Does Scranton Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
