When arranging your vehicle, remember to include necessary insurance, such as collision damage waiver and theft protection, and find out from Thrifty if their quote includes third party liability insurance and fire insurance. Sometimes a car rental quote is all-inclusive, and covers the costs of insurance. In the case of an accident or breakdown, Thrifty will provide a replacement vehicle should yours be unable to continue. Most car hire companies provide twenty-four hour emergency assistance as well. Besides insurance, additional costs will be added to your rental agreement if you request items such as child seats or satellite navigation systems for your journey.
