Unfortunately no, there is no parking available at Thrifty locations. Please check with the location you're hiring from for on street parking options.
What fuel do I use for Trucks?
It's best to check with the location you are hiring from if you're in doubt. Most trucks on the Thrifty fleet are diesel.
How do I refuel a diesel vehicles?
Diesel fuel does froth up when filling the tank. It may cause the pump to click off early. A handy tip, is to lift the nozzle slightly and continue to fill and make sure the fuel gauge shows as full.

What is the clearance height of a truck or van?
We have a large range of trucks and vans, and clearance heights are not all standard. If you're moving house or apartment, be sure to check underground car park clearance heights. If you're unsure, talk to a location team member for specific dimensions of the vehicle before pick up.
If I damage the roof of a vehicle, am I covered?
Unfortunately no, overhead damage to a vehicle is not covered, even if you purchase collision damage waiver protection, meaning you are liable for any cost of damage. So be sure to watch out for clearance heights for bridges, tunnels, carparks or even trees.

Unfortunately no, undercarriage damage is not covered, even if you purchase collision damage waiver protection, meaning you are liable for any cost of damage. Be sure to check out our Terms and conditions for further information.

Just the vehicle itself. All optional extras and accessories are available for rent or purchase at the time of booking. Moving accessories are not included in the rental as standard i.e: rope.
