The licenses must have been held for at least a year prior to the rental date in the customers’ country of residence. Sometimes, an International Driving Permit is required.

Thrifty has a nice range of vehicles available, and all of them come with very competitive rental prices. Economy category vehicles are popular amongst many renters, as they are generally light on fuel. They are not very large vehicles, only seating around four passengers, but they are ideal for city driving and shorter journeys. Example vehicles in this category are the Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat Punto. Compact vehicles are also popular, and include the Fiat Stilo.
Slightly larger vehicles are available for hire from the categories of Mid-Size, Standard and Full-Size. The Daewoo Nubira and similar vehicles are found in the Mid-Size range, and there are also station wagons for hire from this category, such as the Fiat Stilo Wagon. Station wagons are an ideal selection for families, as they generally have good space for luggage, and spacious interiors. The Alfa Romeo 147 is available in the Standard rental category, and the Alfa Romeo 156 is a vehicle in the Full-Size category. It is quite often that many vehicles with an automatic transmission can be hired from the Full-Size car category.
Thrifty is a reliable company which has years of experience in the car hire industry, and is a worldwide company as well. Only the latest model vehicles are rented, therefore customers will receive a well-maintained vehicle which is dependable and with low mileage. All customers at Thrifty may also become Blue Chip members, and enjoy exclusive benefits when hiring a vehicle. Blue Chip members receive VIP treatment at the Blue Chip Members Only line at the rental counters, and can earn free days with Thrifty’s Blue Chip Rewards program.

For an option that is a little different to the usual car rental, customers can select the ‘Wild Car’ category. Wild Car customers will receive a Mid-Size or larger vehicle, at a rate that is lower than usual for a Mid-size rental. You will not know which car you will be driving, as the staff at Thrifty’s rental offices will select your vehicle, but you are guaranteed excellent value for money. Customers who are choosing the Wild Car category will receive a vehicle, which has five or more seat belts, and space for two or more large luggage items.
