Thrifty Kansas City International Airport Airport
Kansas City International Airport handles over ten million passengers per annum, and is located approximately fifteen miles to the northwest of Kansas City, nearby to Platte City, Leavenworth and Smithville. It is recognised by its IATA code of MCI, and its busiest airline companies are Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines. Although passengers can take buses or taxis into the city, a rented car is often preferred, and is a far more convenient way to travel the area. Thrifty has vehicles for hire at the airport, and is a well-known and trusted car rental company in many locations around the world. Their prices are reasonable, and their cars are always found to be in good condition.
Thrifty Kansas City International Airport is not within the terminal buildings, but is found at the new consolidated rental car facility, which is located on the corner of London and Paris, and Bern and London Streets, a short distance from the airport buildings but still on the airport grounds. A number of Gillig buses are available for the transport of passengers to the rental car centre. They leave from outside of each terminal building (Terminals A, B and C) and are grey in colour. They can’t be missed as they are clearly indicated as ‘rental car shuttles’. They are about forty feet in length and are accessible, as they have low floors and a kneeling capacity. Buses arrive at the terminals approximately every two to five minutes, and will just take a few minutes to travel the rental car facility.
There are generally always cars available from the car hire companies of the airport, however, an advanced online reservation is recommended to ensure that you will drive the car that is most ideal for your needs. Online reservations also often result in lower rental rates. Thrifty has cars that are ideal for leisure or business purposes. There are smaller models with cheaper rental rates, such as the Chevrolet Aveo in the Economy category, as well as luxury cars such as the Ford Crown Victoria in the Premium category. Thrifty’s selection of SUVs are often popular as well, as they are spacious with plenty of room for passengers and luggage items. Premium SUVs such as the Chevrolet Suburban can even seat up to eight passengers. Standard SUVs similar to the Jeep Grand Cherokee can seat five.
Further vehicles available from Thrifty include the Ford Focus, Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Ford Taurus, Buick LaCrosse, Ford Escape, Jeep Wrangler, Chevrolet Traverse and the Dodge Grand Caravan, a minivan able to accommodate up to seven travellers. Exclusive for Thrifty customers, is the Wild Card category, from where a Compact or larger sized vehicle can be hired. What is interesting though, is that no matter which car the customer receives, only Compact vehicle rates will be charged. This means that a customer could be driving a minivan or SUV for very low rental rates. The vehicle is chosen on behalf of the customer by Thrifty staff members at the time of vehicle collection. Although it could be any car, it will have five seatbelts and room for at least two items of luggage. The Wild Car category is available online as well.
The Kansas City International Airport car hire companies, including Thrifty, have excellent loyalty programs for their customers that offer a wide range of benefits. Thrifty’s in particular is very comprehensive, and is available to occasional and frequent renters. The Blue Chip program is free to join, and allows access to prioritized customer service, enables a customer to store their preferences online so that reservations, rentals and returns are quicker and if a member of the Blue Chip Rewards program, customers can even earn free rental days. A free day is rewarded to the customer for every sixteen days of paid car hire.
Additional services available include the rental of child seats, satellite navigation systems and Thrifty’s hand controls for disabled drivers, as well as the Multi-Month Rental program, which is ideal for persons who need a vehicle for an extended amount of time. A corporate account will be required for a lengthier rental from Kansas City International Airport. Hand controls are available from Thrifty at no extra charge, however, they should be reserved in advance. The other items of equipment mentioned will have extra charges, and can be arranged over the rental counters, however, their availability cannot be guaranteed.
A primary renter of the Kansas City International Airport car rental companies should be at least 21 years of age, and will need to have a valid driver license and a major credit card. Young driver fees will be applicable to all persons under the age of 25 who will be driving the vehicle. Passengers should also ensure that a Thrifty one way hire is arranged if the vehicle will not be returned to Kansas City Airport. One way hire services could be free of charge, but this will depend on the return location selected for the vehicle. Keep in mind that vehicles are not usually permitted to leave the country, and travel into Mexico, Canada or Alaska.
