The long que and the long process to get the car. In addition before driving the car had to be inspected by a Thrifty representative but there were only two on duty and a large number of cars to be checked.

Economical and user friendly
Seat belts at back were not working

The car we had booked was not available so they upgraded us to a larger car.
We had a screw in the tire and the tire blew out the morning after we picked it up. The roadside assist numbers didnt work.

JaneMarch 17, 2016
Staff very helpful and efficient
Just a suggestion, but I feel that your sign 'Thrifty' should be more pronounced in colour and size when returning the car with all the other signs, we felt it wasn't clear enough.....

We wanted a Chevvy and got a nasty little Datsun

Car was easy to drive but very low

It was a super car to druve and very economical
The computer was "down"when we picked up the car so as a result we spent far too much time collecting the car.
March 7, 2016
The delays. However this was due to an extraordinary number of people at the airport for Argus.
March 1, 2016
Speed of service
the car was not working properly (gear would not engage properly) and we had to change the car halfway through the trip as it was getting worse.
February 23, 2016
We waited for over an hour in the queue to hire the car, and the lock mechanism did not work properly with the result that we could lock but not unlock the car. We asked to be contacted but no one bothered
WilhelminaFebruary 23, 2016

Thrifty staff ..very efficient, friendly, helpful I returned an hour late..was phoned to remind me - great I liked the car - little Chev Spark
Car had many small scratches, dents, so took a while to complete inspection; it would be very easy to miss one or two and then be accountable for having caused them!
