The man who picked up the car when I was dropping off, yelled at me because I was trying to park the vehicle in the row 20 (where I picked it up). I didn’t find a place to leave it next to Thrifty and I thought I could park it at the parking lot in a Thrifty spot, but this man came to me whistling and being aggressive with his facial expressions and yelled at me telling me that I was supposed to leave it on the other side. Zero empathy with the client.Reviewed 20 Apr 2024

Thrifty's personel were not qualified for their job, they were lazy and also very bad persons. I don't care what you can do to improove that, because it is the last time i rent cars from this place.Reviewed 15 Apr 2024

We arrived to pick up our car and no one was on duty. When we finally got someone there were no cars an available and we booked online the night before. The staff Jeanie worked very hard to get us a vehicle and was so very nice and understanding!! She made our day!! Vehicle was clean, new and nice. We had no problems with the vehicle.Reviewed 29 Feb 2024

So we got to the rental place at a few minutes to noon and they were closed. It appears they close at noon. We went to another Thrifty at airport and they said they could take care of it, but that Thrifty did not take the insurance that I paid for through your site. So we had to get insurance through them which was quite pricey. Is that true that they don’t honor your offered insurance?Reviewed 24 Feb 2024

Despite having received the confirmation on the website that a car was reserved, once at the airport location we were told we didn't have a car. We were also instructed to pick up the car at another location then the airport initially with the adresse provided on the confirmation through kayak. We walked 10 minutes off airport to be told the pick up was at the airport. But alast once back at the airport our reservation was useless since thrifty didn't have any cars availableReviewed 22 Feb 2024

I reserved a car online, I arrived by taxi from my hotel to be informed there were no cars! All of their cars had been fully booked since mid January. Thrifty employee stated the online reservations are not current with the availability of cars. I had no car and had paid a taxi fee for nothing!Reviewed 16 Feb 2024

Top tips for hiring a car from Thrifty in Oranjestad

  • When booking a car through Thrifty car rentals in Oranjestad, you’ll want to keep in mind that motorists drive on the right hand side of the road, the same way they do in the US and Canada. When passing another driver, you will do so on the left hand side, but keep in mind many of the roads are one way streets. In addition, note that road signs, speed limits, and the speedometer in your rental car will likely be in km/h (kilometers per hour). Speed limits will be lower in urban areas and higher in more rural parts and large highways.
  • You’ll want to keep in mind the age restrictions when renting a car through Thrifty car rentals in Oranjestad. The minimum age to rent a car is 25, which is pretty typical. However, there is also a maximum age to rent a car: you cannot be over the age of 65. If you’re younger than 25, or older than 65, you may be able to rent a car, but special daily fees may apply. You’ll also want to make sure you have a current, valid driver’s license with you when renting a car, and you must have held a license for at least 2 years.
  • When considering what type of vehicle you’ll want to rent when booking your car through Thrifty car rentals in Oranjestad, keep in mind the activities you have planned. The city is rather walkable, so if you’re set on exploring near your resort, a compact car you can easily park and then get out and continue on foot is best. If you’re planning to leave the city limits and explore more rugged terrain, a car with four wheel drive is best.
  • It’s important to note when booking your car through Thrifty car rentals in Oranjestad that most rental vehicles in the city (and in Aruba in general) are automatic. If you’re traveling from the US, Canada, etc. your rental car should resemble what you’re used to.
