Frequently asked questions

Planning your journey

Does the car come with a full tank of fuel?

Thrifty rates do not include fuel. Thrifty vehicles are usually provided with a full tank of fuel and must be returned with a full tank of fuel, or a local refueling charge will apply.

Fuel Purchase Option (FPO). For convenience, you may purchase a tank of fuel from Thrifty at the time of rental, at a price that is competitive with local fuel stations. This method eliminates the need for you to refill the tank before returning. Please, be aware that we are unable to give a refund for unused fuel. Please check availability of FPO at time of pickup of the car.
