the economics of a rav4
the colour, the scratches
PaxtonMarch 2, 2017
Ease of pick up, proximity of car. Good value.
There was nobody at the Thrifty desk when returning the car so if there had been a problem it would have seriously delayed me.

warm and friendly
willyOctober 29, 2016
Service was good and I did appreciate to get an upgrade for the car I'd booked.
Requesting to driving a normal saloon and getting an upgrade to a 4WD SUV without being asked if this type of change is acceptable? I probably should have made a comment at the start. But it took a little while to get used to the car. Safety wise? Unfamliar car, unfamiliar area to drive? Maybe not such a good ID. Overall pretty good experience.

The upgrade and efficience on delivery

Counter staff helpful
Flight diverted due to fog and so counter staff closed up and went home, leaving us stranded with no car when we arrived two hours later. Had to stay with a stranger in Nelson
August 21, 2016
Nice and quiet lots of room .Easy to drive. Sitting high .
All the mods and cons !
July 25, 2016
Reverse Camera
Maybe I didnt read the confirmation email properly but I was actually looking for the rental.com counter when I got to Nelson as I didnt actually know it was thru Thrifty so maybe a big "Welcome To Thrifty" on the conf email would make pickup a lot clearer next time.
July 4, 2016
It was not clear at the time of booking that there was an airport fee. This should be more obvious and charged at the time of booking.
IanJune 12, 2016
We changed the drop off time which wasn't a problem
MichaelApril 5, 2016
Extremely easy to pick up and return the car. Excellent condition and a pleasure to deal with.
The extra airport charge. I realise that this is "part of the deal" and on the fine print but was still a not ideal surprise.
JosephApril 1, 2016
Everything went very well. Car was great and staff at Thrifty very helpful and friendly.
No complaints at all.
March 25, 2016
Car was clean and well presented.
Difficult to find a park when returning the vehicle. Insufficient parks available for the company.
MargaretMarch 24, 2016
Late model Holden Barina was a pleasure to drive, and accommodated family children, their school gear and scooters comfortably. It got my daughter-in-law to hospital in good time to have her new baby! I absolutely loved the reversing camera!
It took a little while to figure out the single key push to unlock just the driver's door and the double push to unlock all doors, but it's a good feature once you know about it!
March 21, 2016
Everything,no complains at all.
AlastairMarch 21, 2016

December 2, 2015
Fabulous service. The car was ready for us on arrival and check-in took only a few minutes. The car was in excellent near new condition. Drop off was seamless and took only moments - essentially I just handed over the keys.
