All vehicles at Thrifty are divided into various car categories, and when renting a vehicle, customers will choose one of these categories rather than a vehicle by its specific make and model. The Economy category is always a popular choice amongst many renters, as these vehicles are fuel efficient, easy to drive, and great for getting around busy Italian cities, because they are small and practical. They generally seat around four people, and are therefore the ideal choice for single renters, couples or small families. However, they may not have much room for luggage, and a larger vehicle may be more suitable for longer road trips. The Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat Punto are example vehicles in Thrifty’s Economy category. Compact vehicles may be slightly larger than those in the Economy category, seating up to five people, but they still may not have a large space for luggage. Example vehicles include the Fiat Stilo.
Vehicles which are ideal for average sized families, or even the business renter, can be hired from the Mid-Size, Standard or Full-Size categories. These vehicles all have relatively spacious interiors, and are excellent vehicles for all types of traveling. The Daewoo Nubira can be rented from the Mid-Size category, the Alfa Romeo 147 is available in the Standard category, while the Full-Size category features the Alfa Romeo 156 as an example vehicle. There are also estate vehicles available in the Mid-Size category, such as the Fiat Stilo Wagon, which is a great vehicle if you need extra space for luggage.
