THRIFTY Car Rental Services at Dallas Airport

Dallas-Fort Worth Airport is one of the largest and busiest airports in the world in terms of passenger traffic and aircraft movements, and is located between the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, in Texas. This airport in the United States of America is the eighth busiest in the world, and a very important hub for major airline carriers such as American Airlines and American Eagle. Over 69 million passengers pass through Dallas Airport each year, and the majority of these passengers are on domestic flights. All the necessary facilities are provided at this major airport in America, including a number of car hire companies such as Thrifty Car Rental. Thrifty is a well known provider of rented vehicles at thousands of locations across the globe.

Dallas Airport consists of five terminal buildings, which are all connected by the Skylink. This is the largest high speed airport train in the world, and travels every two minutes, providing free transport for millions of passengers. Transport is also required for the Rental Car Center at Dallas Airport, as it is not located within walking distance of the terminals. A free shuttle bus is available every five minutes for passengers who need to collect their rented cars. Signs within the airport buildings indicate the designated pick-up points of the shuttle buses. The journey to the Rental Car Center is approximately ten minutes in duration. Thrifty is located on the Northbound Service Road, and is open for car hire arrangements at all hours of the day, seven days a week. Customers can also arrange their vehicle online, from Thrifty’s website at

Although vehicles can be directly hired from the Thrifty Dallas Fort Worth Airport rentals counter it is recommended at such a busy airport location for customers to make an advanced reservation. This will ensure that your ideal car is ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport. Thrifty’s vehicles are all divided into various categories, for example, Economy, Compact, Standard, Premium, Full-size SUV and Minivan. Customers who just need a car in which to run errands in the city, and who do not have too much luggage to transport, can get away with one of Thrifty’s small and practical vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Aveo and Ford Focus, found in the Economy and Compact categories. Smaller cars are often considered best for their low rental rates and fuel efficiency. A Mid-size vehicle from Thrifty includes the Hyundai Sonata.

Thrifty Dallas Fort Worth Airport unique service in relation to Mid-size vehicles is their Wild Car Program. When this option is selected as a car category, customers will receive a Mid-size or larger vehicle; yet pay rates which are lower than usual for a Mid-size car. Although you will not know which car you will be driving, as the staff at the rental location will choose your vehicle for you, you are guaranteed great value for money. Your car will have at least five seat-belts, and room for two or more luggage items. The Wild Car option can be chosen online as well, in step 1 of the car rental process by choosing ‘Specialty’ as the car class, or in step 2, by selecting the ‘Specialty/Wild’ car class.

Vehicles larger than those hired from the Midsize category include the Dodge Charger in the Full-size car group, the Ford Escape as a Mid-size SUV, the Ford Expedition in the Full-size SUV category and the Dodge Caravan in the Minivan category. SUV's are popular among many renters at the airport, while a Minivan is ideal for many purposes. There is even a Full-size Van available, seating between nine and twelve people. Options for business renters are the Premium and Luxury categories, featuring more elegant vehicles such as the Lincoln Town Car and Ford Crown Victoria. Luxury and Premium vehicles, as well as larger or specialty type cars may come with a higher age restriction than 21. However, all renters 21 years of age or older can hire from most vehicle categories at Thrifty. A young driver fee may be applicable to primary renters and additional drivers under the age of 25. This is a standard procedure in place at all major car hire companies.

Thrifty is a worldwide car rental company with offices in just about every popular holiday destination, and only offer their customers vehicles of the highest quality. Only the latest model vehicles are used, and are therefore dependable with low mileage.
