AIRPORT PICKUP: IMPORTANT
Accurate Flight Details and Flight arrival time are extremely important. Correct flight and contact details are a requirement of suppliers to guarrantee the reservation. Delays will occur if the incorrect details are added to the reservation - and some suppliers will not hold the reservation longer that 1 hour unless notified.
Hint: if you are delayed - visit the counter of the supplier at your departing airport.
Rates are based on a minimum rental period of one day (24-hours from the time the rental starts). At Thrifty we allow a 59-minute grace period, after which an extra hour is charged at one fifth the daily rate, to a maximum of four hours after which a full day will be charged.
Payment for the total estimated rental cost and any sundry charges such as GPS units, must be made at the commencement of hire. Payment can be made by debit card or any major credit card. A credit card surcharge of 2% will be applied to any credit card transaction on all reservations. The deposit is preauthorised at $250 and this is standard across all depots.
Credit cards must be in the name of the main hirer. In addition to this all rentals paid by credit card require a bond to be provided in the form of a credit card imprint. Debit cards must not be the prepaid style, and require the rental + excess + $250.00 fuel bond as deposit.
Minimum rental age and other requirements for additional drivers will be the same as for the renter. Additional drivers must be listed on the rental agreement. Additional Driver Surcharge of $11.50* inc GST per driver.

Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance including third party and public liability is included in Thrifty's rates and an Accident Damage Excess (ADE) does apply. This excess may be reduced at the time of rental by purchasing either Accident Excess Reduction (AER) or Total Protection Package (TPP).
Irrespective of any excess reduction purchased the customer will be fully liable for any damage to the Thrifty vehicle and any third party property, if the terms and conditions of the rental agreement are breached.
Thrifty vehicles are prohibited from the following roads:
Fuel is not included in our rates. Each vehicle is supplied with a full tank of fuel, which is refilled at the renter's expense on return. If the vehicle is not returned with a full tank, the renter will be charged for the fuel required to refill the tank at applicable Thrifty rates at the time.
Please note that multi-island hires require return of vehicles when crossing between the islands at Wellington in the North Island or Picton in the South Island and collecting a subsequent vehicle upon arrival in the other island. We will contact you to confirm your island crossover dates.
NB: There are occasions where some clients wish to retain the use of one vehicle for a two-island visit. This is permissible, but the client must pay for any inter-island transportation costs for the vehicle. The vehicle must be returned to a Thrifty location within the same island that the rental commenced or additional charges will apply.
GPS Units, Snow Chains, Ski Racks and Baby Seats are available for hire at an additional daily cost. Book these in advance with your reservation consultant to ensure availability. These items are the customers' responsibility and are not covered by vehicle insurance and charges will apply for lost or damaged items.
