Blue Chip Information & FAQs
The answers to your Blue Chip questions!
Update your profile
Keep Thrifty up to date on your personal preference profile.

In order to enrol, you must be at least 21 years of age, and hold a valid driver's license.
How do I enrol in the Blue Chip program?
You can apply by filling out the Blue Chip application form online at thrifty.com.au/bluechip
Do I have to pay for membership?
No - Blue Chip membership is free
What are my responsibilities as a Blue Chip member?
As a Blue Chip member, you must ensure all information you provide to us is true, accurate and complete. You must keep your details such as address driver's license details, and credit card details fully up to date, to ensure that we can always provide you the express service expected as a Blue Chip member!
How long will it take to receive my Blue Chip membership details?
You'll receive your Blue Chip Membership Number via email within 48 hours of submitting your application. An email containing your Blue Chip Membership Card will arrive within 2 weeks.
Can I make an urgent Blue Chip booking before I've received my Blue Chip Membership Number?
Yes. Simply make the booking via the website or through our Reservations Department and once you have received your booking confirmation email email@example.com so we can add your Blue Chip details to your booking.
What do I need to collect a Thrifty hire vehicle?
Your Drivers Licence.
I still haven't received my Blue Chip Membership Card but I have a car rental taking place.
No drama. All that is needed is your Blue Chip number which you should receive upon signing up for Blue Chip. As long as this is entered in to your reservation you will receive the express rental service of Blue Chip.
I want to make a car hire booking for overseas but my Blue Chip Number doesn't seem to work?
For security reasons, your Blue Chip details are not recognised internationally. But don't despair - international rental car reservations can be made by visiting our worldly cousins at www.thrifty.com.
Reservations for New Zealand can be made by visiting www.thrifty.co.nz . To ensure you receive the Blue Chip Member rates simply enter BLUE into the Promotion Code Field. Please do not enter your Blue Chip number on this website. Upon arrival, present your Blue Chip Membership card, Drivers License and credit card to the Rental Sales Officer.
Can I add a partner/colleague to my Blue Chip profile?
Unfortunately not. Blue Chip membership is an individual membership that can only be used by the person whose name appears on the card. This is because your Blue Chip profile contains specific and personal information such as Drivers' License details and Date of Birth. Partners or colleagues can be added to the car rental contract upon collection or establish their own Blue Chip membership.
I am being asked for a password when I attempt to log in, but I can't recall my password.
Australian Blue Chip Members don't need a password to log in. Just ensure that you're on the Australian website (www.thrifty.com.au) where your only requirement to log in is your Blue Chip Membership Number and Surname.
What reward programs are available through Thrifty?
You can earn points through Velocity Frequent Flyer. For details on what you are eligible for, please speak to our customer service representative when you are collecting your vehicle or call on 1300 365 564. For Virgin Australia guests, please click here to find out more.
My details have changed that are stored in my Blue Chip profile. How can I update my details?
Visit the Update your profile on the Blue Chip menu. You will be prompted to enter your Blue Chip number and surname. From here you are able to amend your details such as your address, drivers licence expiry, email address, billing details and rental preferences.
I have recently had a car rental and require a tax invoice. How can I obtain this?
You can now obtain your tax invoice on our website via Access tax invoices. You should allow up to 14 days after the rental vehicle has been returned before attempting to retrieve your tax invoice. There are some locations in WA and VIC where tax invoices are not available online. You should contact the location you rented from directly to obtain a tax invoice.
I have feedback about the service I received during my last rental. Who can I speak to about this?
If you would like to provide your feedback the best way to provide this is to visit the Contact Us section of the website and complete the Feedback form. Our Customer Service team will then be in touch to address your comments.
I have lost my Blue Chip card. Can you please send me a new one?
Thrifty no longer provides physical cards. To make a booking using your Blue Chip profile all that is needed is your Blue Chip number to be entered into the reservation. If you would like a copy of your card sent to you via email the simplest way to order a replacement card is to visit the Blue Chip section of our website and update your profile. At the top of the page select the tick box next to New Card Required and then click the Amend button. You will receive a copy of the card via email within 2 weeks.
