Can I reserve a specific make or model car?
Answer:  Yes. Although our standard fleet isn’t 'reservable' by specific make and model, our fleet is. Book your choice of any of our fleet vehicles, and we’ll do our best to have that exact car waiting for you at the pick-up counter. And once you're behind the wheel of your favorite rental car, if you decide to keep your vehicle for a few more days, that's no problem at all. Since TRY 1 offers each customer this same flexibility, please understand that we can't guarantee that the specific make or model you choose will always be available – some of our renters undoubtedly will decide to keep their favorite car longer than they originally planned, which might overlap your rental request. But if we have the car of your choice when you arrive, you'll get it!

Express your unique style by arriving in a smooth-riding Volkswagon Beetle, Mitsubishi RVR, or one of our other distinctly different vehicles. Dream It. Reserve It. Drive it. With TRY 1's fleet - you choose!


Can someone else drive a car that I rent?
Answer:  Yes. An additional driver must be at least 23 years of age. TRY 1 will check the additional drivers' license to ensure that it is valid.  TRY 1 will be unable to approve an additional driver if the driving history reveals any of the following issues:
