Thrifty Halifax International Airport

Halifax International Airport is located nearby the towns of Enfield and Elmsdale, in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. It serves the city of Halifax, mainland Nova Scotia and other areas in nearby Maritime provinces. It is one of the most important airports in Nova Scotia, and is listed as the seventh busiest airport in Canada, because it handles over three million passengers every year. The airport’s facilities include car rental companies, for example, Thrifty Halifax International Airport. Thrifty is a good choice of car hire company for business and leisure travellers, and are known to provide quality vehicles.

Halifax International Airport, with the official IATA code of YHZ, is named after Robert L. Stanfield, a Premier of the Nova Scotia region. The airport is therefore commonly referred to as the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. It has a single terminal building, adequate in size for the number of passengers it expects each year, but is currently being expanded to meet the increasing demands of air traffic in the area. The terminal is extremely well equipped for arriving and departing passengers, and similar to many other airports in Canada, as won several awards for its excellent services. In 2011 it was rated as the third ‘Best Airport in North America’. The airport car hire companies are found in the domestic arrival area, and Thrifty’s car rental counters are open every day of the week, from early in the morning to late in the evening. Their hours are convenient for passengers on the majority of airport arrival flights.

The Halifax International Airport car hire companies, including Thrifty, offer a wide selection of vehicles, all only of the latest models, and all in sound mechanical condition. Thrifty’s vehicles are arranged into various car groups, which include Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Premium, Luxury, SUV, Minivan and Midsize Van. There is also a Standard Convertible category, with the Chrysler Sebring convertible as an example vehicle. The smaller and more affordable cars for hire are found in the first categories mentioned, and are similar to the Toyota Yaris, Toyota Matrix and the Toyota Corolla. They are ideal for four or five passengers, and for city or long-distance driving. These vehicle models are usually hired with unlimited mileage, and have air conditioning and automatic transmissions.

The larger cars hired could be similar to the Volkswagen Passat Sedan, Toyota Camry and Chrysler 300. The Chrysler is an example of a Luxury vehicle, often hired by business professionals who need a more elegant vehicle. In the SUV categories, customers can hire vehicles such as the Toyota Rav 4 and Toyota Venza, while Vans include the Dodge Caravan. Try to choose a car that is large enough for your passengers and luggage items, but one that is affordable for your budget. Remember to include additional items of equipment required for your journey, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. Child seats can be of a smaller size for infants, or booster seats may be requested for older children. In Canada, all persons in a vehicle are required to wear seatbelts.

From Halifax International Airport, hand controls for disabled drivers may also be hired. This device will require an advanced reservation, and from Thrifty, hand controls are free of charge. They are fitted to certain types of automatic vehicles, and control the break and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. The terminal building of Halifax Airport is also completely accessible to persons with disabilities, with pavement ramps, elevators and accessible toilets.

The Halifax International Airport car rental companies may allow their vehicles to be arranged as a one way hire or as a cross-border rental. Thrifty one way hires are convenient for customers going only ‘one way’, and who would like to return their vehicle to a different rental location. Cross-border rentals should be arranged by persons who are planning to drive to cities in the United States. At Halifax Airport, one way hires and cross-border rentals may be more expensive than an ordinary car rental.

Thrifty offers some wonderful options for their customers, and innovative ideas that make the car rental process easier, and possibly even more affordable. Thrifty’s Blue Chip member program is ideal for all customers, and can be joined by occasional and frequent renters. Blue Chip members enjoy shorter lines at a VIP rental counter, faster reservations, rentals and returns and even earn free rental days with the Blue Chip Rewards program. Corporate customers of Thrifty can rent a car for longer periods of time as well (for up to eleven months), and at certain of their rental locations, the Thrifty Wild Car program is available. This allows customers to hire a Midsize or larger vehicle at lower rates than usually charged for a Midsize car.

Passengers of Halifax International Airport are welcome to contact Thrifty for further car rental information.
