Thrifty’s operating hours at Venice Airport are from 08:00 to 23:15, every day of the week. Their hours during bank holidays may vary. Vehicles can be booked directly from Thrifty’s rental counters, or customers can make an advanced reservation from Thrifty’s website, at www.thrifty.com. Their website has all the details you will need for renting a vehicle, and it shows all the vehicle categories available at Venice Airport. Vehicles are booked by car category at Thrifty, rather than by their specific make and model.
Vehicles in the Economy category are a popular choice amongst many renters, as they are smaller vehicles which are very fuel efficient. They seat up to four people, and have a bit of space for luggage, although longer road trips may require a greater luggage capacity than offered by these vehicles. Examples of vehicles in Thrifty’s Economy category include the Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat Punto. Compact category vehicles include the Fiat Stilo. Slightly larger vehicles are available for hire in the categories of Mid-Size, Standard and Full-Size. These vehicles have more room for luggage, and comfortably seat up to four or five passengers. Mid-Size vehicles include the Daewoo Nubira, and there are also Mid-Size wagons available, such as the Fiat Stilo Wagon. Wagons are great vehicles to hire if you need extra space for luggage. The Alfa Romeo 147 is an example of a vehicle in the Standard category, while the Alfa Romeo 156 is offered in the Full-Size category.

You will not know which car you will be driving, but you can be sure that you will receive excellent value for money. The pick-up location determines the vehicle when you arrive to collect it, and the vehicle is guaranteed to have at least five seatbelts and room for two or more pieces of luggage. If you book online, you must select ‘Wild Car’ as your car class, the ‘Specialty’ car class in step one of the rental reservation process, or the ‘Specialty/Wild Car’ class in step two.
