Thrifty is an American car hire company, founded in 1958 and currently operating in 77 countries. As their name suggests, Thrifty offers cheap car hire and rental deals in a range of destinations. The company has changed hands a number of times over the years, but continues to offer great value to their customers.

After becoming a public company in 1987, Thrifty was acquired by American car manufacturer Chrysler in 1989. One year later Thrifty was combined with Dollar Rent a Car to create the Dollar Thrifty Automative Group, which then spun off from Chrysler in 1997. In 2012 the group was bought over by Hertz, but each of the subdivisions still retains its own personal character.

With franchises in some of the world's busiest airports, Thrifty is a convenient option for travellers in a hurry. Upon booking you can choose from a range of convenient extras, from baby seats and luggage racks to satellite navigation systems.

Whatever kind of vehicle you're looking for, Thrifty is sure to have something to satisfy your needs. They offer a wide range of high quality vehicles, from budget friendly economy cars to spacious mini-vans.

Since 2009 the company has been working on diversifying its fleet, which was once primarily composed of Chrysler brands like Dodge and Jeep. Thrifty now offer cars from Nissan, Kia, and Mitsubishi as well as other American favourites like Ford and Buick. The brands on offer differ based on country, but Thrifty cars are all under three years old with less than 50,000 miles on the clock: so you're guaranteed a smooth and safe ride.
