Thrifty Car Rentals in Winterthur: What you need to know

Winterthur is just one of many neighborhoods in Zurich that are worth exploring, and, you'll need an automobile to check out everything there is to do in this city. Public transportation, while affordable, may not take you to exactly where you want to go. Ridesharing can be convenient, but you'd be surprised by which areas they don't serve. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Winterthur and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town at a good price, then you've found the best spot. We work with many of the best dealers in the world, like Thrifty, because they are known for their success in supplying visitors with the best vehicles on the road. We can help you and your visit get off without a hitch.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Winterthur Thrifty car rental at a great rate?

You're well on your way to finding the best deal on your car rental by going through CarRentals.com. But, you can remember a few things to keep your upcoming booking affordable:

  • Compare vehicle pricing before you book
  • Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which can cost more
  • Know ahead of time the amount of mileage/fuel you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

A little knowledge can go a long way to increase your savings.

Which forms of identification should I bring when I pick up my rental car in Winterthur?

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

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

Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Take time to read through Thrifty's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Winterthur. If you are having trouble deciding, be sure to look over the chart below. We've compared the most popular vehicle categories for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Switzerland?

When driving in Winterthur or the rest of country, you will need insurance. Thrifty requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your vehicle. Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through Thrifty for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Switzerland.

The major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Zurich.

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 deposit can vary greatly based on the size of the car. Furthermore, be sure there is enough funds on your credit card to make the deposit.

What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?

We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before returning the rental to Thrifty.

Can I get unlimited mileage when renting a car in Winterthur?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of your package. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most car rental providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, you could face additional cost. You may want to have unlimited miles if you're thinking of some road trips to discover all that is in Zurich.
