Thrifty USA Rentals Cars
Thrifty has been offering rental cars in the USA since 1958 and the company now belongs to the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group which was bought by the Hertz Corporation in 2012. The brand name itself stands for SAVINGS, and that is exactly what the rental car company offers its customers! Thrifty is represented in most of the major airports in the United States and its fleet carries vehicles from all major car manufacturers. For a while, Thrifty mostly concentrated on Chrysler vehicles, but currently they also offer many other models from manufacturers such as Ford, General Motors, Nissan, Hyundai, and Kia.
Supplemental Liability Insurance
The government required liability insurance included by the rental car companies in the United States is considered insufficient by independent experts. The coverage required by law ranges from US$ 0 (basically no insurance coverage) to a maximum of US-$ 60,000. We strongly recommend adding a supplemental liability insurance package; otherwise you will personally be held responsible for any damages.
In all packages a Supplemental Liability Insurance with US-$ 1 million in coverage is included directly from Thrifty (coverage amounts reflect current coverage, subject to change).
Toll Charges(Pass24© / PlatePass)
Thrifty offers you the Pass24© service at selected rental locations. The cost of the Pass24© is a flat fee which already includes all toll charges. The Pass24© can only be bought at the time of pick-up and only for the entire rental period; purchasing the Pass24© only for individual rental days, or after you picked-up the vehicle, is not possible. If you decide not to purchase the Pass24©, but still use a SunPass Express lane during your travels, you will be charged a fee per incidence or occurrence in addition to the toll charges incurred.
Notice: If you want to travel along the Florida Turnpike from Miami to Key West, you will need to purchase a SunPass; this 47 mile stretch does not accept cash or credit cards anymore for toll charges. In case you do not have a SunPass, you can simply take U.S. 1 south from Miami Beach to Key West, or, if you are traveling from Orlando, you can take the Florida Turnpike to the Miami-Dade County line and then turn onto I-95 south, which will then turn into U.S. 1 later on.
