Thrifty Car Rental is one of the largest car rental companies in the world and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. Thrifty is one of the most widely recognized brands in the travel industry that caters to cost-conscious business and leisure travelers.

In November 2012, Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) acquired Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group.

Thrifty has a large fleet that features small, mid-size and large vehicles that are sure to meet the needs of any traveller.

Travellers renting from Thrifty can choose to pay up front for their fuel, this way they do not have to deal with finding a petrol station in a location they do not know. Thrifty simply asks for the car back and they will take the time to re-fill the tank themselves.  This is just one of many ‘Timesaver’ services Thrifty provides.

Customers can also rent a Garmin Nuvi GPS system, buy a Pass24 toll road pass or check-in online in order to save time. The GPS especially comes in handy for travellers who are not familiar with their surroundings.
