New vehicle. Good service Ended up with a 2 litre Quashqui When we asked for a 2.5 litre Camry.

quick process to get the ar and someone waiting in the car park at drop off to collect. No mention at the desk that the car i booked was not what i was getting. Just the carpark number, so i was confused when i was looking for a hatch back and found an SUV. That should have been explained to me at the counter. Or i be given the choice to keep the car I actually ordered.

Lady at the Thrifty was very helpful and friendly. What a pleasure to get a car from them. Thank you very much. I also was very impressed with the Toyota Corolla I got.

Procimity of cars to terminal. Wish you released the funds on my card more quickly. It's still there after a week. The other company I used on my trip released the funds within minutes. Not good.

The boot of the first car wasn't big enough for my cases but the desk assistant was excellent in providing another car in the same category with a larger boot.
