There are six different car categories from which customers of Thrifty can choose their ideal vehicle, including Economy, Compact, Mid-Size, Standard, Full-Size and Premium. At Thrifty, a car category is chosen, rather than a vehicle of a specific make and model. The Economy category is often a popular car rental choice, as it consists of vehicles which are easy to drive and very fuel efficient. Example vehicles in the Economy category are the Fiat Punto and the Lancia Ypsilon. Compact vehicles include the Fiat Stilo, and Mid-Size vehicles include the Daewoo Nubira. Larger sized vehicles are available in the categories of Standard and Full-Size, and they are usually able to comfortably seat up to five adults, and still have some space for luggage. These are often popular vehicles for the average sized family, or for business class travelers. Examples of vehicles in these categories include the Alfa Romeo 147 and the Alfa Romeo 156.
Business travelers may also be interested in hiring a vehicle from the Premium category, such as the Jaguar X-Type, as they are vehicles which certainly create an excellent presentation and first impression.
