About Blue Chip

While Thrifty Car Rental is known today as one of the largest car rental franchises in the world, when the company began in 1958 it was definitely hard to predict what a massive success the company would become. National Car Rental operates 1,840 corporately owned or franchised locations and is part of a group of car rental companies which also includes Hertz and Dollar. These companies make up a huge percentage of car rentals in the United States as well as internationally, offering 9,700 locations in total. For those looking to score some extra perks on their car rental, Thrifty's loyalty program, Blue Chip, provides a whole host of great benefits. Members get the ability to skip the check out counter and go straight to grab their car, and also benefit from having free additional drivers added to their reservation and priority service overall. The Blue Chip rewards program also allows you to make faster reservations, getting in and out of the car rental lot as quickly as possible, and you'll also get special member discounts all along the way. Please note that this loyalty program typically works for all your purchases at Thrifty Car Rental, but some exceptions may apply.

Loyalty points or benefits will usually appear in your Blue Chip account within 1 days.

You may be able to recover points or redeem rewards you should have earned for a purchase.
