Welcome to the Thrifty blog – your go-to destination for all your Aussie road tripping needs.

Whether you are a newcomer to Australian shores and don’t know where to begin exploring, or a local looking to find a hidden gem in our vast country, you’ve come to the right place.

Each week, the Thrifty blog will cover new and exciting destinations and attractions (as well as a bunch of old favourites) to feed your travel bug. After all, our business is all about getting you on the road.

What you’ll find

From the pristine shores of the Whitsundays to the mysterious landscape of the Aussie Outback, the vibrant cities of Melbourne and Sydney, to the humid tropics of Far North Queensland – we’ve got the lowdown on the best spots to visit to suit every unique need.

Whether you thrive on adventure, love taking in incredible sights and attractions, feel at peace amongst nature or just need a relaxing getaway, we’ve got travel inspiration for you.

We will also dive into invaluable road trip tips and advice to keep you safe and content on your journey, and touch on travel trends and news that will be sure to capture your imagination.

Finally, we will break down all your Thrifty-related questions regarding our fleet and services. We’ll give you tips for renting a 4wd vehicle, for example, or guidance on how much you can fit in a Thrifty moving truck.
