Thrifty’s clients must be at least 21 years old, though in some countries the minimum age is 25. We recommend you check the minimum age required for the country you’re planning to visit.
As of January 2011, Thrifty introduced a policy that prohibits smoking in its cars. If you notice tobacco smell when you rent a car, notify the company as soon as you notice it, to avoid inconveniences when you return the car.
If you need an infant seat, make sure to request it when booking your car. The company offers all the equipment you need to travel with children, though you can use your own car seat if you prefer.
