Other useful information for Alice Springs Airport car hire renters
If you want to hire one of our Thrifty vehicles, then just give us a call first to discuss your needs – particularly if you have any uncertainties or doubts about the vehicle you’ve booked or you need advice on what to hire. We always advise our customers to avoid driving between dusk and dawn outside the city, as there is lots of wildlife about and animal damage is not covered by Thrifty's Damage Recovery Fees (except when driving within the Uluru Township and Kata Tjuta National Park area).
If you wish to set off along the Larapinta and Namatjira Drive (also known as the Mereenie Loop), you should note that you can only travel along this road with a High Clearance 4WD.
