Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Wollongong Thrifty rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Wollongong?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Wollongong?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Wollongong is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Thrifty's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Wollongong?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Wollongong. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Wollongong getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Wollongong. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Thrifty require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Thrifty requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Wollongong. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Thrifty car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Thrifty rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wollongong definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Wollongong?
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Thrifty. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
