Optional Extras

To help you travel safely and comfortably, Thrifty offers a number of optional extras that can be added to your rental. From baby seats to GPS units, we've got you covered.

Baby and Child Seats

Under Australian law, all children under seven (7) years of age must use an approved child restraint appropriate for their age and size. Children aged seven must be secured in a restraint if one is available in the vehicle.
All infant and child seats are subject to availability at time of booking.

Infant Child Seat (0 - 1 year)

Rear facing: for infants that weigh up to 9kgs or 20 pounds.

Child Seat (1-4 years)

Forward facing: For children weighing 8-18kgs or 20-40 pounds, and up to 101cms/40inches in height.

Booster Seat (4 - 7 years)

Forward facing: All children between the ages of 4 and up to 7 years must travel in a forward-facing child seat or a booster seat. Booster seats must be fitted in the rear seats only, in seating positions equipped with lap and shoulder belts.

GPS Units

Saving you time and stress, our GPS units feature fast, accurate route calculation with voice and visual directions so you can explore Australia with confidence.

Refuelling

Pre-Paid Fuel 

At select locations, you can choose to pre-purchase a full tank of fuel and return the vehicle low on fuel for a hassle free, fast return. There are no refunds for unused fuel.     

Refuelling Service Charge
If you do not pre-purchase fuel and you choose to return the fuel tank only partially full, we will top it up and the cost of the fuel and our refuelling service charge will be added to your rental. Please be advised that fuel charges may vary by location.

Toll Roads

If you will be travelling on toll roads during your rental, you may want to add Thrifty Toll Cover to your booking.

Thrifty Toll Cover includes all toll charges under one flat daily fee. This allows unlimited toll usage during your rental. 

You can add this option at any time during your rental and the daily flat fee will appear on your rental agreement/invoice.

Due to varying toll prices in different states, Thrifty Toll Cover pricing will be calculated based on the state where you collect your car.

If you do not purchase Thrifty Toll Cover and you drive on toll roads during your rental, you will be on-charged for the tolls used and you will also incur an administration fee.
