Convenience – fly in and fly out

Are you visiting Australia's capital city for a holiday or work trip? Take the fuss out of travelling with Thrifty's no dramas vehicle pick up and drop off. You can literally fly into Canberra and walk straight to your hire car, bypassing the counter with our Thrifty Arrive and Drive service for Blue Chip members.

We are located opposite the departure lounge and alongside the Qantas Check-In Counter. Simply find your name and bay number on the large TV screen and stroll on over to your Thrifty hire car. You'll find the condition report inside the vehicle and all you have to do is sign on the dotted line and hand it over to the concierge. Now that's what you call fuss free travel!

Once you've picked up your stylish hire car it's just a short 10 minute cruise to the Canberra CBD.

 

Relax with the Canberra Airport amenities

Canberra Airport has benefited from a recent upgrade with new roads, landscaped areas and stylish architecture - so this isn't a small country town terminal.

Pick up a good book to read on your next flight at the RELAY book store and enjoy some brewed coffee goodness at the Tuk Chop, Hudsons Coffee or Limestone Café & Bar. And if all you want to do is check your emails and the latest online news, then enjoy the free Wifi in one of the comfy airport lounges.

 

Travel tips for visiting Canberra

Canberra is home to neatly lined streets, dazzling architecture and historical sites. The garden city was designed by architect Walter Burley Griffin in 1912 but it wasn't until the 1960s that it came to life.

While in the area make sure you stop by one of the museums and art galleries, such as The Australian War Memorial, The National Museum, The National Gallery, The Australian National Botanic Gardens and let's not forget where all the politicians hang out - Parliament House.

While the weather in Canberra is moderate most of the year, in winter temperatures can change suddenly bringing high winds and snow - so always drive cautiously during these times and put on your defensive driving cap.

 

Take advantage of Thrifty's partnerships

Here at Thrifty we love offering mates rates deals and have a special partnership with Australia's leading Auto Clubs. So if you're an Auto Club member you get standout benefits including Best Rate of the day, reduced damage liability and a discount off Collision Damage Waiver Protection.
