Larger car than expected and ease of Rental car use and overall experience.
The car windscreen wiper on the drivers side had an annoying squeak when turned on. This would indicate that they were not checked by the cleaning team prior to rental.

Excellent service. Very friendly and helpful staff.
LorraineOctober 17, 2017
Staff very efficient to deal with.
Perhaps a plan on where to locate the car would have been helpfull especially as it was raining at the time.

Fine worked well Car a little far from desk
NickOctober 3, 2017
Staff were excellent
Getting a holden Captiva when you book an Aurion is disappointing. Car not comfortable to drive, and gutless. Can't fault staff though

Thrifty staff person was excellent.
Price, way too expensive for a small car.

Upgrade was ideal

The ease of picking up the car from Christchurch Airport.
There were quite a few construction bits going on at Queenstown airport which made finding the Thrifty drop off a bit difficult, need a few more signs.
LILIANSeptember 18, 2017
Friendly & helpful staff. Location.
September 16, 2017
Fantastic value. Car was immaculate and very economical. Really happy with the deal I got.
No one around at drop off to check car, but not really a big deal.

New vehicle. Good service

MaxwellJuly 28, 2017
Perfect rental
Staff couldn't give me a final bill when I handed keys back
July 24, 2017
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.
July 19, 2017
Seamless hiring
Wipers were terrible
July 13, 2017
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.
CarmelJune 26, 2017
A spur of the moment trip and thrifty were awsome! Will definitely use Thrifty again.
RalphJune 7, 2017
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.
June 4, 2017
Thrifty personnel very helpful and efficient both in picking up the car and dropping off the car
That I did not get the original car I wanted
May 2, 2017

nothing !
AndrewMay 1, 2017
Ease of booking, finding the car rental site, great staff, ease of finding the car.
We did not know that we had booked through a third party - Thrifty is a booking site. As AA members, no mention was made of this on the website and we could have got a further discount. We ended up paying more than we should have.
April 30, 2017
car was new & clean
On the booking confirmation it said we would have a vehicle to seat 5 with room for 4 bags. Instead we were in a small Hyndai, with 600 plus kms to travel it was not overly comfortable and road noise was loud
April 25, 2017
customer service was great and the vehicle we were given was excellent.
April 21, 2017
Loved the upgrade of the car
GrantApril 10, 2017
Friendly & helpful staff
Poor signposting of car rental returns c.f. Auckland Airport & poor signs in the Airport - would apply to all rentals. Not very impressed with the 'Tivoli' as a car. Not economic & very touchy accelerator.
AubreyMarch 31, 2017
Thrifty service was very good and the vehicle was in good condition
Interior windscreen was very dirty when we picked up the car
March 27, 2017
The best rental company with amazingly helpful staff. Will book their car again, for sure.
RussellMarch 23, 2017
excellent overall would highly recommend
KelvinMarch 19, 2017
Wouldnt go anywhere else great service.
March 7, 2017
I booked on line and paid the full waiver thinking it was part of the Thrifty package. However, when I picked up the car I discovered that it was through another company even though I could purchase the same thing through Thrifty. Bizarre!

Friendly and helpful service
AntonyMarch 3, 2017
Clean, had reversing camera, maps provided, easy driving, comfortable.
No sav nav. I think they should be automatic for visitors in an unfamiliar city.
