Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wilmington. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Wilmington are around 34 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Wilmington trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Thrifty. 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.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
