THRIFTY Car Rental Services at Lisbon Airport

Lisbon Airport is the main air gateway to Portugal, and is found between Loures and Lisboa, the capital city of the country. It is also Portugal’s largest airport, and a major hub for the airline carriers of TAP Portugal, Easyjet, SATA International and White Airways. Lisbon Airport is located approximately 7 km, or 4.3 miles from the city, and very nearby the areas of Lumiar, Musgueira and Camp Grande, as well as Portela, a name for which the airport is also well known. Excellent facilities are offered from within the terminal buildings, and transport options include the services of the Lisbon Airport car hire companies, such as Thrifty. Thrifty is found at many airports around the world, and are a very popular choice of car rental company.

Lisbon Airport has two terminal buildings, named as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 1 is the main building of the airport, serving all international departures and arrivals, while Terminal 2 is a newer construction, for all scheduled domestic flights. The second terminal was built to allow the airport to handle a greater number of passengers, and to more easily meet the demands of increasing passenger figures. However, Lisbon Airport will, in later years, be moved to a new location, in order to further facilitate growth, as it is now surrounded by urban development, with little chance for expansion. The car hire companies are found in the arrival halls of the terminal buildings, and are easily accessed from all areas of the airport. Thrifty Lisbon Airport is open from Monday to Sunday, during the majority of hours throughout the day and night.

Thrifty offers their customers an interesting range of vehicles for hire at Lisbon Airport, all of which are ideal for travelling within the city, and also to nearby areas which are popular for their attractions. The cars for hire are arranged into vehicle categories, which is most often the case with all car hire companies, and therefore customers will not be choosing a car by its specific make and model. A similar vehicle to the example vehicle of each category will be received. If Thrifty does not have a vehicle similar in size and characteristics available, customers may receive a slightly larger car, but at the same economical rental rates as their chosen category.

Customers of Thrifty may be able to choose the Wild Car category as well, which is a unique option not offered by any other car hire company. With Thrifty’s Wild Car program, customers will receive a mid-size or larger vehicle, but at a rate which is lower than usual for a Mid-size rental. Although you will not know which car you will be driving, you are guaranteed to get excellent value for your money. Upon arrival at Lisbon Airport, the staff members on duty at the Thrifty rental counters will choose your vehicle for you, and it is guaranteed to have room for five or more passengers, and at least two large luggage items. Thrifty also offers the Blue Chip rental program for all their customers who enjoy their services. Blue Chip members receive priority counter service, faster reservations, rentals and returns, and may even earn free rental days with the Thrifty Blue Chip Rewards program.

The smaller cars hired by Thrifty Lisbon Airport, may be similar to the Nissan Micra, and are found in the Mini Category, while Economy vehicles are also a very popular choice, and include the Fiat Punto. All smaller cars are fuel efficient, and come with excellent rental rates. Vehicles in the Compact category are the Ford Fiesta and Opel Corsa, and Mid-size rentals include the Renault Modus, as well as the Renault Megane Estate, which is ideal for families with more luggage to transport.

Further options from the majority of Lisbon Airport car rental companies include one way hires, hand controls for disabled drivers and the rental of additional equipment, such as child seats or satellite navigation systems. All these services, or items, will cost a few extra Euros, except for hand controls, which are free of charge. Lisbon Airport one way hires are ideal for customers who will not be returning to the airport, and may also be free of charge, if the rented car is returned to a Thrifty location which is in the same city as from where it was collected. However, this will depend on the rental company’s terms and conditions, and the length of the rental period.

The primary renter and all additional drivers listed on the rental agreement will need to show a valid drivers license when arriving at Lisbon Airport to collect the vehicle, and a major credit card will be needed to pay for the period of car hire. Major credit cards include American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa, and certain car hire companies offer their own charge cards. The minimum rental age of 21 must be met by all drivers, and their licenses must have been held for at least a year in their country of residence. In some cases, especially when the license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet, an International Driving Permit will be required.
