Thrifty.com is the official website of Thrifty Car Rental, a company owned by Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group. The Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group also owns Dollar Rent-A-Car. The holding company was founded in 1990. Hertz Global Holdings acquired the company in 2012 but the brand names have remained unchanged. The parent group has owned Snappy Rent-a-Car, General Rent-a-Car and Eurodollar in the past. Thrifty is based out of the headquarters of the parent group at Tulsa in Oklahoma. Thrifty.com was an offshoot of the concept founded by Chrysler and hence the rental cars were Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler in the United States. It did bring in other brands like Toyota, Nissan and Mazda in other locations. Since 2009, the brand has moved away from the degree of omnipresence of Chrysler vehicles.
The Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group used to be on the Fortune 1000 list and had a presence in more than fifteen hundred locations around the world and almost a thousand in the US alone. With a history of almost sixty years, Thrifty Car Rental was established in 1958, the brand is one of the oldest operating in the car rental industry. It is a publicly listed company today with a presence in sixty eight countries and more than a thousand locations. The operations are mostly confined to the US and Canada. It has a segregated Blue Chip Express Rental Program for businesses and frequent travelers. Thrifty is not known as a budget car rental company, not to be confused with the brand Avis Budget. There are some pretty expensive cars and many economic cars to rent. You can sign up for newsletters and emails from Thrifty. This will make you eligible to get an instant 10% discount on the base rate of your next rental. The rental has to be weekly and not a pickup and drop.
