Thrifty always welcomes Young Renters!

 Man driving car

At Thrifty, the days of having to be over 25 years old to rent are over. No more begging to borrow mom’s car. No more lectures from dad about how he couldn’t rent when he was your age. Your time for adventure has arrived. From road trips with best friends to long weekends away from campus,  you’re now cleared for take-off. Best of all, Thrifty always makes it fast and affordable to hit the road.

Here’s what you need to know when booking your car as a Young Renter: *

  •  Be at least 20 years old (Minimum age to rent in New York and Michigan is 18).
  •  Have a valid driver’s license in good standing for over a year.
  •  Have a valid debit or credit card. The name on the card must match the one on your license
  •  You will be subject to a Young Renter fee in addition to the car rental rate


*Renters under 25 years old are subject to a Young Renter fee. Fee varies based on renting location and car class. Car class restrictions apply. Minimum age to rent in NY & MI is 18. Additional terms and conditions apply, see Policies and Fee Information for full details.
