Thrifty Brindisi Airport is located only a few kilometers from the small seaport town of Brindisi, in southern Italy’s Puglia region. The airport isn’t the largest in Italy, handling only around one million passengers per year, but it does have all the facilities required by arriving and departing passengers. It is an international airport that also goes by the names of Brindisi Papola Casale Airport and Aeroporto del Salento, and has the official airport code of BDS. Within its terminal building, there are a number of car hire companies available, for example, Thrifty. Thrifty is a popular choice for many renters, as they offer reasonable rental rates and some unique offers which make car rental more rewarding.
Thrifty Brindisi Airport is open every day of the week, from 07:30 to 23:00, and can be found in the arrivals hall of the airport. Thrifty’s hours of operation may vary on holidays. Customers may also reserve their vehicle in advance of their flight to the airport from Thrifty’s website, at www.thrifty.com. This website offers all the information you need in order to understand Thrifty’s rental procedures and policies, and also allows you to view the car categories available at this location. Similar to most other car hire companies, customers will select a car category when choosing their rental car, and not a vehicle by its specific make and model.
Vehicle categories at Thrifty Brindisi Airport include Economy, Compact, Mid-size, Standard and Full-size. Each car category contains vehicles of a different size, therefore you should select your category mainly according to the size of vehicle that you need. The vehicles may also differ in terms of whether they have a manual transmission or an automatic transmission. Cars at Thrifty come with various features, such as air conditioning, air bags, ABS brakes, power steering and cruise control. Passengers may also select additional items of equipment to hire for their rented vehicle, such as a child safety seat or satellite navigation system. These items do come with an extra cost per day of rental, but will greatly contribute to the safety and ease of your journey.
Economy category vehicles at Thrifty are smaller than those in the other categories, and are a good choice for customers who just need transport for the city, or who do not have much luggage. Examples include the Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat Punto. Both these vehicles have a manual transmission, and can seat around four people. Compact vehicles such as the Fiat Stilo can seat up to five passengers.
Mid-size, Standard and Full-size vehicles can all comfortably seat five people, and may even have an automatic transmission. They are a good option for families or business renters. The Daewoo Nubira is an example vehicle in the Mid-size category, the Alfa Romeo 147 is found in the Standard category, and Full-size vehicles include the Alfa Romeo 156. Station wagons can also be hired from the Mid-size car category, such as the Fiat Stilo Wagon. This type of car often offers more space for luggage.

A unique and interesting offer from Thrifty is their Wild Car program.

Although you don’t know which car you will be driving, because the rental location will chose it for you when you arrive to collect your vehicle, you are guaranteed to get excellent value for your money. Your car will have at least five seatbelts, and space for two or more luggage items. It is also possible to book this service online – simply select the ‘Specialty’ car class in step two of the rental reservation process, or the ‘Specialty/Wild’ car class in step two.
