Thrifty is a well-known and respected worldwide car rental brand with more than 1020 locations in 68 countries. You can meet cars with Thrifty logo anywhere in the world -- on winding streets of old European cities, on wide American highways or on picturesque African savanna roads.
The company was founded in 1958. In 1989 it was bought by renowned car manufacturer Chrysler and finally in 1990 it was combined with Dollar Rent-a-Car to form Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group – a car rental giant with more than 7000 employees. Traditionally Thrifty car rental offered exclusively Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep cars, focusing on preferences of American clients. But with the growing global expansion of Thrifty its strategy was cleverly transformed and the fleet was enriched with other popular and respected brands, such as Mazda, Nissan and Toyota.
Today clients of Thrifty can choose vehicles of any size and class that suit their needs or desires. It should be noted that the very “telling” name of the company means not only economy but smart economy. Thrifty car rental is tireless in inventing new ways and solutions to allow its customers to save money and at the same time to increase its own profits.
The company picks up clients at the airports and drives them to its service centers which is very convenient and thoughtful. Numerous programs designed for loyal clients give various privileges and bonuses. For example, Smart Bet Wild Card holders enjoy the opportunity to get a lower rate for bigger cars. Blue Chip Express Rental Program allows clients to enjoy quick pickup and accumulate points to get a free rental day. One more smart offer – customers can pay for fuel in advance so upon arrival they don’t have to waste their time on searching for petrol stations in an unknown location. Opportunity to rent a GPS or buy a pass for toll roads offered by Thrifty is also very practical and useful. So, Thrifty saves not only your money but also your time which is always precious when you are on the road.
