Blue Chip Express Rental Program

We believe that when you're renting a car often, you should be rewarded with fast service and exclusive benefits.

That's what our Thrifty Blue Chip Express Rental Program is all about. It's for frequent car renters who want to hit the road faster. With Blue Chip you can jump the queue, breeze through with less paperwork and be rewarded for your loyalty.

All Australian Government travellers will be required to become Blue Chip Members to allow the rental to be charged back to your Diners account.

Personal Preference Profile

Blue Chip allows you to create a personal preference profile containing most of the details we need to make a booking, so you receive exactly what you want with minimum fuss.

Corporate Affiliation

Your corporate rates and conditions will be attached to your member profile.

Express Pickup Service

'Arrive & Drive' is a service for Blue Chip members currently located at Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne Domestic Airports. The Blue Chip member is no longer required to go to the Thrifty counter. A plasma screen directs them to their pre-allocated ready to drive vehicle. The Blue Chip member will find the keys in the ignition and the pre-printed rental agreement. All the driver is required to do is drive to the Thrifty boom gate where they are greeted by a Thrifty Concierge who will check the drivers licence and quickly release the vehicle. 'Arrive & Drive' will be rolled out at all major domestic airports.

Blue Chip express rental lanes are also located at selected service counters and airports. The renter simply needs to present their Blue Chip card and drivers licence and they are on their way!
