Thrifty Car Rental Introduces App for Apple Products

Thrifty Car Rental launched an app for the iPhone and iPod Touch on July 19 for users to book rentals and plan trips.

Users can quickly book a rental from any Thrifty location by following the app’s three-step reservation process. The app also saves existing reservations and customer profiles securely so that renters can modify reservations, view details about rental cars and reserve additional features like car seats or a GPS.

Thrifty Blue Chip members can also reserve rentals with their discounted rates on the app.

Customers will also benefit from the app’s "Around Town City Guides," which provides customers with hotspots and deals available in popular destinations. Customers can use the suggestions to plan their trip.

“Our specially-designed app for iPhone and iPod touch is another added convenience for Thrifty renters,” said Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Chairman, President and CEO Scott Thompson. “We strive to always meet the changing preferences of our customers and have crafted our mobile strategy to do just that by enabling them to book quickly and easily while on the move.”

The Thrifty Car Rental App is available for free from the App Store.
