Only one person on counter with 4 customers wanting rentals from.same flight
January 10, 2017
No staff at counter on arrival. Apparently the staff were out cleaning the cars. She did apologise for the wait and our flight was delayed plus she said there was no flight number on the booking so understood however still think someone should have been there when the flight came in just in case!!

Ease of booking, style of car
Girls at desk were obviously a bit tired as its a busy time of year so not very warm. Not rude just a bit disinterested.

Unable to park in the thrifty car park when I returned the car & there was no one at the thrifty desk when we checked in.

You will see from your records that I returned the car early. Whilst I now understand that a refund is not usually paid, I am obliged to Brian (from Devon in the UK) in your Sydney office for his outstanding Customer Service in processing my claim.I will have no hesitation in using and recommending Rentalcars.com in the future!
Nothing, but suggest you consider building early return refunds into your system. Your offering would then be 'Best Price and Best Service'.

There was no problem with anything, however can I suggest that if someone books a sedan and are upgraded to an SUV (Tuscan) they should be informed at the booking desk. It didn't bother me, much appreciated, but other customers might not be used to driving a SUV.

Easy quick pick up drop off
Not the car I booked. Each individual car should be advertised with the price. People pick cars they are familiar with or like the model.If I pick a toyota I expect a toyota.

Not being able to speak to anyone at the Thrifty counter. We left a message on the phone to say we were waiting to pick up our car.

Additional airport fee which was snot included in original paperwork
RichardNovember 23, 2015
Very modern upgrade Trax Holden. It was virtually brand new and went extremely well. It was spacious for the people travelling in the back and had all the mod cons that you would expect in such a car. Very economical on petrol.
Definitely nothing.
shirleyNovember 2, 2015
It was a small car but big enough for 3 and most economical petrol wise

IanApril 30, 2015
Friendliness of the lady at the counter. I also made a mistake when booking my car, I said drop off would be 1:30am but she realised the mistake prior to me picking up the car and made the necessary changes on my behalf.
Have none to mention
DanielApril 19, 2015
Guy was at the desk even before we arrived and had our paperwork in front of him - you can't get better than that.
RossApril 7, 2015
The unexpected upgrade. Provided because they didn't have any of the model selected at the airport pick up.
March 24, 2015
Upgrade was lovely
The time I had to wait due to a booking error with the customers prior to me The car was very clean except for the centre console that hadn't been cleaned out and was still full of rubbish - thankfully it was lolly wrappers and chewing gum so it wasn't a gross discovery.
March 12, 2015
Value for money. Excellent condition of vehicle.
Call out fees would have been applicable if we had collected the vehicle on the Sunday that our flight arrived in Napier. We had to return to the airport the following day to collect, in order to avoid call-out fees.
