The Dublin Airport car hire companies offer many innovative services for their customers, which save time and money. At Thrifty, customers can make use of the Wild Car Program and could become a member of the Thrifty Blue Chip Program. The Wild Car Program is a good choice for customers who require a larger-sized vehicle, but who would rather pay cheaper rental rates. This option allows a mid-size or larger vehicle to be hired at a price which is cheaper than usually charged for a mid-size vehicle. However, the customer won’t know which car they will be driving, as it will be chosen at by Thrifty staff members at the rental counter when it’s time for collection. It could be a mid-size car, a minivan or even an SUV, but it is guaranteed to have at least five seat-belts and room for two or more luggage items. It will be great value for money.

The Thrifty Blue Chip Program is open to all customers of Thrifty, and is free to join. Members enjoy shorter lines at the rental counters, as there is a Blue Chip Only Line available, and in general, will have quicker and easier reservations, rentals and returns. Customers can even benefit from the Thrifty Blue Chip Rewards Program and earn a free day of car hire for every sixteen days that they rent a vehicle. From Dublin Airport, long-term rentals may also be possible for corporate clients, as Thrifty allows rentals for up to eleven months with their Multi-Month Rental Program. Hassle-free reservations can be made for this service at a special 800#, and there is no need to return the vehicle before the rental contract has expired. The charges will be automatically billed to the customer's credit card or their Thrifty billing account.

The car categories available from Thrifty include Mini, Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Full-size and Premium. Examples of smaller sized vehicles include the Ford Ka, Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai Getz, Toyota Yaris and the Nissan Micra, while larger cars may be similar to the Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, Toyota Avensis, Ford Mondeo, Volvo S40 or BMW 3 Series.

The device is usually free of charge, and may include a steering wheel knob.

Thrifty may require their primary renters to have held a valid driving license for a number of years prior to the rental date, and will ask for a major credit card when it’s time for payment. In some cases an International Driving Permit is required, as well as other documents, such as a passport and return airline ticket. Driving in Ireland is quite simple provided that you pay attention to the road rules. Vehicles are driven on the left hand side of the road, and speed limits should be obeyed on all roads. The driver and passengers of a vehicle should also be wearing seat-belts, and this is why it is important to arrange a child car seat from Thrifty if you have younger members in the family.
