Ultimate Protection

For total peace of mind

When you choose Thrifty's Ultimate Protection, as part of your car rental with Thrifty you'll have total peace of mind.

If you return a vehicle in a damaged state, you will not be liable for the cost of repair, known as the damage recovery fee, and receive cover for tyre, windscreen and hail damage.

Ultimate Protection reduces your Damage Recovery Fee (DRF) in the event of damage to NIL, and covers tyre, windscreen and hail damage.

Ultimate Protection is capped at 10 days per 30 day rental at selected locations, making protection more cost effective for longer rentals.

Please see terms and conditions for full details on Ultimate Protection or enquire with our Reservations Team for more information. 

Be sure to tick your Protection option in Step 3 of the booking process!

Single Vehicle Accident recovery fee

If you are involved in what we call a Single Vehicle Accident, a Single Vehicle Accident Fee may apply in addition to any Damage Recovery Fee. A Single Vehicle Accident is an accident that does not involve another vehicle other than a parked vehicle. You will be notified of the amount of that fee at the time of collecting your vehicle. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.  

For more information, please see our terms and conditions of rental.
