Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Townsville Thrifty rental car?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Townsville?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Townsville's minimum age to rent a car?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Townsville?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Townsville. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Townsville getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty in Australia. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Townsville. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Townsville. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Thrifty.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Townsville certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Townsville.
Can I get a one-way rental from Thrifty?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
