THRIFTY Car Rental Services at Glasgow Airport

Thrifty Glasgow Airport is open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 08:00 and 20:00, while on Saturdays and Sundays they are open from 08:00 to 18:00. Their hours during public holidays may vary. Although it is possible for customers to book their rental car directly from the counters at the airport, it is recommended to make an advanced reservation. This way you will ensure that your ideal vehicle selection is available, as well as any additional equipment you may require for your journey, such as a child safety seat or satellite navigation system. A GPS unit is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you, especially if you are unfamiliar with the Glasgow area. The navigation systems offered by car hire companies are usually top-quality, featuring continuous road maps, color touch-screens, clear and accurate visuals, a choice of languages, and even an extensive list of points of interest, enabling you to always be able to find the nearest shopping center, hotel, restaurant, tourist attractions, gas station etc.

All the vehicles available at Thrifty are divided into various car categories, and when hiring a vehicle, customers will choose one of these categories rather than a car by its specific make and model. The car categories are all displayed on Thrifty’s website, along with pictures of example vehicles in each category. On their website, there is also plenty of information about Thrifty’s rental procedures and policies. One of the popular car classes at Thrifty is the Economy category, with vehicles such as the Renault Clio. They are all nice and practical vehicles, great for city driving, and light on fuel as well. Economy vehicles can also seat up to four people, making them ideal for single drivers, couples or even small families. Other vehicles of a similar size to those in the Economy class can be hired from the Compact category. These include vehicles such as the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo. Vehicles in the categories of Economy and Compact don’t however have much room for luggage, and therefore a larger vehicle may be more suitable for longer road trips.

Larger sized vehicles can be found in the categories of Mid-Size, Standard and Full-Size. The Ford Focus and Nissan Note are example vehicles in the Mid-Size category, the Volkswagen Golf is available in the Standard category, and the Full-Size category features vehicles such as the Volkswagen Passat. These vehicles generally seat up to five people and have some space for luggage. There are two categories offered by Thrifty which contain vehicles that are a bit more elegant and stylish than the ordinary rented car, for example, the Jaguar X-Type, Saab 9-3 and Mercedes-Benz CLS. The Premium or Luxury category may be the ideal choice for prestigious business events. Even larger vehicles can be hired from the Minivan or Mid-Size Van categories, such as the Ford Galaxy and Vauxhall Zafira. One of these vehicles may be a good choice for larger families, or groups of friends who wish to travel together. Other categories available at Thrifty include Full-Size SUV and Luxury SUV.

Thrifty, at Glasgow Airport, only hires the latest model vehicles with low mileage and low rental rates. They are an ideal choice for leisure or business travel arrangements, and are also available worldwide. Customers who are fond of renting from Thrifty can become a Blue Chip member. This is a free membership available to all customers, and offers many benefits, such as the special Blue Chip Members Only lines, faster reservations, rentals and returns, and members can even earn free days with Thrifty’s Blue Chip Rewards program. For every sixteen days that you rent with Thrifty, you will earn one free rental day. Further details about the Blue Chip membership is available on Thrifty’s website.

Another unique service offered by Thrifty is their Wild Car Program. When selecting this option, you will receive a Mid-Size or larger vehicle, but only pay rates which are lower than usually requested for a Mid-Size car. You don’t know what you will be driving, but you are ensured of receiving great value for money. The staff at your pick-up location will select your vehicle when you arrive, and it is guaranteed to have at least five seat-belts and room for two or more pieces of luggage. The Wild Car option can also be selected from Thrifty’s website by choosing the ‘Specialty’ car class in step 1 of the rental reservation process, or the ‘Specialty/Wild’ car class in step 2.

The primary renter in the United Kingdom is usually required to be at least 23 years of age, and have a valid drivers license which has been held for at least one year in his/her country of residence prior to the rental date. An International Driving Permit may also be required for foreign renters. In order to pay for the rental, a major credit card in the name of the primary renter is required.
