Thrifty Car Rentals in Southampton: What you need to know

Southampton is just one of many neighborhoods in Hampshire that are worth exploring, and, you'll wish for your own vehicle to check out all there is to do around the area. The city buses, while cheap, drop you off far from where you desire. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but rural areas may not have regular service. Additionally, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town for a great price, then you are in the right place. Thrifty is one of the many great car rental businesses we work with to not only get you the vehicle you need for your business trip, but also get you the best price.

Frequently asked questions

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

CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best deal. However, to increase your savings on your trip to Southampton you can do a few things:

  • Check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise expenses
  • Book your rental car as far ahead of time as you can
  • Avoid airport pick-ups or drop-offs if possible; they tend to be more expensive
  • Compare daily and weekly rates; you may save more if you rent the car for longer

A little knowledge can go a long way to lower your rate.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Southampton?

You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

How old do I have to be to rent a car?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Take time to check Thrifty's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for larger or higher category rentals especially.

What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Southampton?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Southampton. If you are having a little trouble choosing, be sure to go over the table below. We have compared the most popular types of vehicles for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
Full Size SUVTo take on any kind of terrain and enjoy great viewsFord Edge, KIA Sorento, or similar
Full SizePlanning a big trip with a large group of friends or family membersInfiniti Q50, Hyundai Sonata, or similar
HybridThose that want a quiet and comfortable ride with terrific miles per gallonToyota Prius, Honda Civic, or similar

Does the United Kingdom require car insurance?

When cruising through Southampton or the rest of the U.K., you'll need insurance. Thrifty requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through Thrifty for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.K..

The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to Hampshire.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?

Thrifty, like several other rental companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly based on the size of the car. Also, be sure there is enough funds on your credit card to pay a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Southampton?

The majority of suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it is part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's useful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most car rental providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may need unlimited miles if you are planning to discover all that Hampshire has to offer, or even the U.K.

What is there to do around Southampton?

Once you've explored Southampton, you'll be happy that you have your own set of wheels. Not sure where to start your trip? The Southampton Maritime Museum can make for a fascinating afternoon.
