Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best rates on a Taupo Thrifty rental car?

CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.

What should I bring with me when I pick up my car rental in Taupo?

Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's the minimum age to rent a car in Taupo?

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Taupo is 21. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.

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

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Taupo. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does New Zealand require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in New Zealand. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give 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 issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can 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 book your rental car. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Taupo. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?

We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Taupo definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Taupo.

Does Taupo Thrifty offer one-way car rentals?

Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Thrifty. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
