You know where it says Model XXX (or similar). I always get "or similar".

JohnMarch 6, 2017
Really easy - no hassle. No pushy up-selling, just a gentle request about upgraded insurance etc. Very nice car!
AndyFebruary 20, 2017
Cost of add-ons is excessive. Don't forget to keep a copy of your fuel receipt, they will want to see it when you drop-off.

Very economical car
The body was in bad condition and the man that looked after me did not show anything about car even though it was a different model to the one i booked.

Quick and efficient service from the staff. Even changing the automatic that was booked by mistake for a manual without any issues. Easy to exit the parking area, no number to enter. Drop off was marked to spot easily and service was very helpful.

RogerSeptember 21, 2015
Thrifty rep. was very helpful. Took us to the car, noted marks not currently noted on the car condition sheet and transfered the in-car screen to English for us. On return rep checked over car very quickly and issued receipt.

Good upgrade
Unfamiliar with car but it all worked well

Insurance excess of 1500 euros for tyres after paying 'full protection' is cynical. Tyres suffer damage duw to roads and thurd party's.

Great service
JessicaJuly 25, 2015
That it was a new car. That it was diesel, and that it was such a thrifty car :)
Small Windows, which makes it harder to drive backwards. The car was washed but the water had dried up so fast that there where spots everywhere, even on the windows which affected the visibility a little. I would dry the car with a cloth if it was my company. I didn't get an explanation about the key, so I didn't know you could also put in the slot, until the end where I saw the personnel doing it! But it also worked when not in the slot.

All round a very good experience.

A good car to drive
Would like to have been told it was a ECO car and the engine would turn off when it stops! As we thought it was broken wine hit happen

Economy of the car, good customer service.
Far from the terminal, car was dirty,
AnthonyJune 26, 2015
Great, friendly service. Very efficient both picking up ad dropping off. The site is really easy to access and is close to the airport.
KeithJune 8, 2015
Full to full fuelling
Should have been notified in the paperwork that a free bus is needed to get to the car pick up point. The possible excess not covered by the CDW.
TeranceJune 3, 2015
Fantastic Car, great service
It would be good if you can tell customers the directions and time to the Car Rental Location. e.g. take bus from car rental stand outside terminal 2
RichardApril 12, 2015
Good car, pleasant staff
Not clear that for a Thrifty car you had to use Hertz. Also when leaving customs no signs as to where to go to collect a Thrifty car
April 10, 2015
Efficiency of staff and quality of car.
Signage for Thrifty from arrivals at Lyon airport was very poor.

DavidMay 30, 2014
Initially no indication that Thrifty was present at Lyon airport. Not obvious that it was part of Hertz, until bus driver explained.
PascalMay 15, 2014

anthonyMarch 12, 2014
Customer service and advice...thanks, a real pleasure, and delighted to drop the car off in Lyon centre after picking it up at the airport.excellent value for money
WarrenMarch 3, 2014
Location of Thrifty was not clearly shown on the shuttlebus as I was unaware that Thrifty was part of Hertz. Maybe a logo needs adding to the signage. I had to get out my documents to try and find a link to the rental companies on site at Lyon Airport.
February 10, 2014
Everything went very smoothly. Thank you.

Value for money and service
