Thrifty Car Rental has also recently announced a significant enhancement of their rental fleet, which now features a full line of vehicles, including Honda City, Toyota Corolla, Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Mitsubishi Magna, Toyota Prado, Nissan Patrol and Toyota Landcruiser, all of which will be accessible to visitors to Oman.
