Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Tijuana Thrifty rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Tijuana?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Tijuana's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Tijuana is 21. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Tijuana?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Tijuana. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Tijuana getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Mexico?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Mexico. You can buy additional insurance through Thrifty for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, 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 U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Tijuana. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Thrifty?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental topped off. If you return your 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 return the car to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Tijuana?
Tijuana definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Tijuana.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Tijuana?
Thrifty offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
