Thrifty Washington Ronald Reagan Airport
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport serves the very important city of Washington, D.C, and is an airport that handles around 18 million passengers per annum. It is found in Arlington County, Virginia, and approximately 3 miles from downtown Washington. The airport was formerly known as Washington National, but in 1998, it was named in honour of former US President Ronald W. Reagan. This American airport has all facilities required by its passengers, along with several options for ground transportation. Rented cars from the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport car hire companies are often popular as well. Thrifty is available for business and leisure travellers, and offers competitive car rental rates throughout the year.
US Airways is one of the main airline carriers at this airport, and offers flights from a large number of other US cities. Passengers could also arrive at the airport on flights offered by American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Virgin America, Alaska Airlines and Southwest Airlines. Even though the airport does not handle international flights, flights do arrive from cities in Canada that have airports with US border preclearance facilities. There are three terminal buildings at DCA, and the terminal of arrival will mainly depend on the airline carrier with which the passenger is flying. From all terminals, a shuttle bus will need to be used to reach the car hire companies, which are found in Parking Garage A. Thrifty, however, is found off the airport’s site, on the Jefferson Davis Highway. Their shuttle buses run frequently from the terminal buildings, and the ride is quick and convenient.
Thrifty’s wide range of vehicles for hire include the Chevrolet Aveo, Ford Focus, Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion and Ford Taurus. The Ford Taurus is a larger vehicle found in the Fullsize category, and one that is often selected by families who need some space for their luggage items. Many of Thrifty’s cars come with air conditioning, CD players and other useful features. Passengers of the airport could also hire a more elegant car from the Premium, Luxury or Beyond Luxury categories, which include the Ford Crown Victoria, Buick LaCrosse and Hummer H3, or even an SUV, similar to the Ford Escape, Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, Chevrolet Traverse and Chevrolet Suburban. Some of the larger SUVs seat seven passengers. The Dodge Caravan is ideal for seven as well, and the Ford E350 can seat up to twelve passengers.
A car category offered by Thrifty that is not found at any of the other Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport car rental companies is the Wild Card Specialty category. Here customers will receive a Compact or larger sized car, but even if they receive an SUV or a Minivan, they will still only pay Compact vehicle rates. This is a great deal for anyone who may like to drive something a little larger, but who would still like to pay very reasonable car rental rates. The car is chosen at the rental location by Thrifty’s staff members, and is guaranteed to have at least five seatbelts and room for an item or two of luggage. This category is also available for online bookings.
Thrifty’s loyalty program for more frequent renters is very popular. It is referred to as the Blue Chip program, and features many time and money saving benefits. It is also free to join by all who qualify. Blue Chip members enjoy shorter queues at the rental counters, as there is a special counter dedicated to their reservations, and can even earn free rental days with the Thrifty Blue Chip Rewards program. Instead of flyer miles, customers can choose a free day of car rental (one free day for every sixteen days of paid car hire). Another useful offer by Thrifty is their Multi-Month Rental program that allows renters with a corporate account to hire a car for up to eleven months. The vehicle need not even be returned until the rental contract has expired. Charges for longer rentals are conveniently billed each month to the customer’s credit card or Thrifty billing account.
Thrifty one way hires are a convenient option for passengers who do not have return flights from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, as one way hires allow the vehicle to be returned to a different car rental location. Most vehicles hired can be driven to all parts of Virginia, and into the neighbouring states, but not into a different country, such as Mexico or Canada. Hired cars are often not permitted into Alaska either. Keep in mind that one way hires could be more expensive than an ordinary rental.
From Thrifty, hand controls for disabled drivers, child seats and satellite navigation systems can be requested at the time of making a vehicle reservation. Additional items of equipment may also be hired directly over the rental counters at Reagan Washington Airport, however, hand controls will require an advanced reservation. An earlier booking is always recommended for other items as well. Child seats come in various sizes, and are therefore suitable for infants, toddlers and young children, and are generally of a high quality. All passengers in a vehicle that is driven in the US are required to wear seatbelts, therefore a child seat will be a necessary request if you are travelling with the younger members of your family. GPS units, although not required by law, are extremely useful for any traveller, and come with many features that make driving in Washington, D.C much easier.
