Arrive and Drive
There's nothing like getting on the road and to your final destination quickly and easily after spending hours on a plane. With Thrifty and our Blue Chip benefits at Melbourne Airport, you can take advantage of our Arrive and Drive service. Bypass the counters when you rent a car as a Blue Chip member. Simply check for your name on our large TV screens, head straight to your car rental bay to find the paperwork conveniently places in the front seat. All you need to do then is sign the condition report and hand it back to our friendly concierge before driving off.
Hire optional extras
You can also choose to add handy extras to your hire car booking, such as child or baby seats, or a useful GPS navigation unit. Melbourne is notorious for confusing interstate and international travellers with their unique road rules! Don't get caught by Melbourne's infamous hook turns or many one way streets when you rent a GPS unit.
