9.6 ExcellentOct 14 2019
Upon return the agent was very helpful getting us to where we needed to go. Went beyond expectation.
2.0 MediocreOct 7 2019
NothingThe reservation was cancelled after I booked the advertised car online through a 3rd party website. It was a very disappointing experience to have to try again 5 times to actually have the booking accepted. Why don't the 3rd party rental companies and Thrifty communicate better so customers actually have a good experience instead of tearing out their hair?

Car hire excess insurance in Canberra

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Canberra car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Canberra.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Canberra car rental.
