It was a nice surprise to get a upgrade (no sure why).
The inside passenger seat had someones lunch crumbs on it. The outside of the car was dirty.

No difficulty finding the rental desk and pick up.
Nothing really. The Ssangyong Korando was a bit strange when in cruise. Revved very highly when negotiating the slightest incline.

The size & room in the car. The smoothness of it when driving. The appearance of it too.
The European wrong side for wipers and lights etc !!!
MandyFebruary 27, 2017
Quality car, staff super helpful and friendly Ease of dropping off and the drop off location in Dunedin city.
Staff Wasn't at the airport but made up for it with wonderful service. I booked through the rental car app and DID NOT LIKE the lack of communication to try and shorten length of hire by one day. Resulted in having to pay for car and insurance for extra day - I would go direct next time

Thirty, are it easy to hire. Great process thank you
The car was weak going up hills and there were a number of features on it that were not easy to understand. A manual or simple instructions sheet relevant to the make and model would have helped

Loved the Sang Yong
Wipers and indicators on opposite side to my usual vehicle.

Great service, easy pick up.
While it was nice to get an upgrade, it cost a lot more in fuel. Minor niggle to an otherwise great experience.

The gentleman at thrifty was very helpful and friendly, the car was very nice to drive and economical, it was a very smooth and easy experience to hire the car.
I would have liked foot mats in all four foot wells.

Staff really nice and friendly. The car was great until check engine light came on.
The car check engine light came on, so cut my driving short. Had no one at the counter when I returned it so could not let them know. I noticed while sitting at the airport later someone was there so could tell them then.
AnneAugust 30, 2016
The helpfulness of the staff in confirming and double checking arrangements.
Muddy floor mats and car wasn't as pristine as I expected.

NigelApril 17, 2016
I travel frequently for business and generally use Avis, however this time I decided to compare pricing with other similar companies and Thriffy was more competitively priced.
March 15, 2016
Even though I booked the car and paid for it my husband was asked to sign the paper work.The excuse he handed over his license first.Pretty terrible that this happens in this day and age.
GaryMarch 10, 2016
Good service easy straight forward
Car was not a Toyota Corrolla as ordered Car brakes were noisy, as if the front brake pads needed to be changed. Drop off desk at Christchurch was not very well signed from the carpark.
CraigFebruary 19, 2016

Ease of ordering rental car on line and good email communication
Driver side rubber floor mat that slid all over the floor pan - I removed it to the back seat area. Could not get the USB port to play music from flash drive.
SandraOctober 31, 2015
The car was a Hyundai i30 elite and it was perfect for our needs. We were extremely happy.
Nothing to dislike
October 15, 2015
The staff. Took a long time but idiots in front of me. Not the fault of the staff.
September 23, 2015
Good service
Where I had to get car from at airport as it was raining and had two young kids and trolley with bags.maybe could have been ready outside rental office?
August 24, 2015
the comfort, economy, seat height and all round vision
difficulty in attaching seat belts in front seats and the hand brake being underfoot
MatthewAugust 10, 2015
I liked getting an upgraded car size/model. A pleasant surprise.
At the drop off, it was not clear where to park in the Invercargill Airport car park. A little confusing when no one was at the office. The instructions were fine (leave the key in the box etc.). With bags to carry and checkin to do, I wished I'd asked or been told clearly when I picked up the car, what to do if no one is at the drop off.
karenJuly 28, 2015
The car was lovely to drive and the up grade and wonderful surprise
The parking fees for in vercarGill were a pain. Can't they be put in first payment made for car?

Customer service was friendly, curtious & efficient. A staff member fook me to the car &' was kind enough to collect my lugage from the temporary area while building &'renovations are being carried out at Invercargill Airport. Most impressed.

Thrifty staff were very helpful
I didn't realise I was booking through a 3rd party and that I had to pay upfront 2 months ahead of using the car.
March 18, 2015
Counter staff at pick up was helpful friendly and approachable.
Difficulty in finding somewhere to leave the car park at drop off. The office had closed early and the forecourt was full.
