Anonymous Darwin Airport 10 July 2017
car was excellent Thrifty staff at drop off were excellent Easy pisck up and drop off at Darwin airport pick up staff were a little taciturn
ANDY Darwin Airport 11 July 2016
Car was clean. & it was great that it had unlimited mileage. One major gripe is there is no CD player in e car! I was very surprised at that. This was not stated anywhere in the booking. Isn't it a given that a car will have a CD player? As such, I didn't bring any USB etc for playing. I've driven a Toyota Yaris before & it was a much better car than the Hyundai Elentra I was given.

Anonymous Darwin Airport 21 July 2014
Unlimited kilometres and no one way fee! - especially pleasant at a location like Darwin - as the road to Alice Springs and Uluru is a popular tourist trip with so much to see along the way. Very expensive to drive if under 25. Price should be more competitive - would be a reason to choose another rental company over Thrifty next time.
Michelle Darwin Airport 31 May 2014
Excellent is all I can say from start to finish
Steve Darwin Airport 10 April 2014
Vehicle reliability and fuel economy. Vehicle damage that was not noted on the details and condition report that required me to return to the collection desk to report.
