Thrifty Car Rental has invested in a new system to help its most valued and loyal customers get on the road faster.

‘Arrive and Drive’ is now available exclusively for Blue Chip customers at Sydney Airport and Melbourne Airport with other major locations gearing up to use this system in the near future.

Operations Director Kayleen Collins said: “The service allows Blue Chip customers to bypass the Thrifty Car Rental counter and go straight to their car. Customers can simply look for their name and bay number on the large TV screen. Everything they need is in the car so they can get on their way without delay. It’s that simple!”

Blue Chip is Thrifty Car Rental’s free-to-join membership program, offering customers an express rental service and exclusive rewards. To find out more, visit
