It was reasonably easy especially drop off
The car wasn’t great quality.
September 13, 2017
Car was good to drive
Car was not thoroughly cleaned when we picked it up. The damage visual sheet was not accurate and we had to get the attendant to go over the car with us.

Great service and car was exactly what we ordered, no long ques on arrival, will definitely book with your company again

The time it took to get the car, you need more staff on the desk or do not share with another company.
June 5, 2017
The car was nice to drive when I figured out how to start it.
no representative on sight or at desk on first arrival, was not shown to the car on even shown how to start and use the controls. Completely different on return, polite and charming staff.

Confusion about Thrifty desk at airport. The desk was unmanned but had a sign telling me to go to Lane M1 in car park. This turned out to be for Firefly and I had to return to the desk to then discover that I should have gone to Hertz desk

All good, no problems
philipMay 2, 2016
ADmin was excellent
I paid to upgrade to an automatic with a satnav. It was a Toyota Yaris hybrid. Dreadful car - gearbox all over the place, no power.
April 5, 2016
The car was too big.
CarlMarch 14, 2016
No Hassle Good price Clean car Friendly and professional staff (with English language skills)
October 12, 2015
Value for money.
When I came to pick the car up they gave the keys to a fiat 500 when I booked a car like the Ford Focus. I did complain and they gave me a scenic instead, but I found this quite a cheeky approach.
JamesAugust 30, 2015
Quick and efficient handover and drop off.
The car had not been cleaned inside and there was grit and sand in both foot wells.
AndrewAugust 16, 2015
Queues for Hertz (Thrifty desk was a closed) were nice and short - Euopcar were much longer and would have taken hours ! Staff were friendly and English was good (which helped me). They gave us a car with built in sat nav, which was a nice surprise.
Nothing - all went well.
DouglasAugust 11, 2015
Pick up car park very close to airport
July 12, 2015
Ease of getting it and returning
June 22, 2015
Convenient and good value for money
May 31, 2015
Friendly staff
Because of the size of the car, I find it floating a little. I said not perfectly clean as in the box by the seats, it was dirty, with fluff, pieces of paper and hair. Not appealing when they are not yours. Otherwise, car clean. Thank you
April 7, 2015
Didn't like the fact that if you want extras eg child car seat or sat nav that u have to pay by the day a one off payment for the time you have the car would be better value for money!
NatalieMarch 10, 2015
The young guy that served me is a credit to the company (Hertz) a réaly nice young man with a fantastic attitude. Always smiling. Fantastic service. Merci :)
DavidFebruary 23, 2015
He car was big and as described....staff were friendly and helpful
upgrades expensive for what was sat nav
MartinSeptember 9, 2014
Easy check in, knowledgable staff good vehicle fair price, easy drop off.
Parked a long way from terminal, directions were not toogood, took 10 minutes to find the vehicle.
August 30, 2014
All went very smoothly, from booking right through to returning the car at the airport. We received excellent customer service from staff and will definitely consider using Thrifty again.
GemmaAugust 26, 2014
Free upgrade. Thanks :)
August 18, 2014
Basic small car and economical
Expected a Polo and not a Punto car not used to driving.
August 11, 2014
The staff where very helpful and efficient
The car was supposed to be automatic but it was dual (both auto and manual). This made the automatic mode extremely jerky and not at all smooth during gear changes
July 28, 2014
generally everything, no problems
hughJuly 27, 2014
Excellent service and car met our needs perfectly
Very hard to find the Thrifty desk (it was at the Hertz desk) no signs and the Airport information staff did not know either
RupertJuly 21, 2014
