Price and short time for dropping off the car.
Long wait before the car was ready

The vehicle is not older than 2 years, yet the car was badly scratched. The handbrake did not work, and I had to park uphill.

Ability to res pond to a difficultd situation I didnt have a Credit Card so they were able to compimise and I paid extra deposit to secure the Car
Not enough awareness and it is only in the small print is made on the internet that non credit cards like my Captec Debit card which is also a master card are not allowed. I belive non credit embossed credit card should be allowed

JohannSeptember 11, 2017
I've always had the best experience with your company. The car made it not so nice this time round.
Air conditioning on the Etios, did not work at all. Something like a plastic cover was loose at the right front wheel and the noise it made was very frustrating. First time I had such bad luck.

Friendly staff!
GodfreySeptember 11, 2017
Car space, light on petrol, the quick drop off and cleanliness.
Full insurance cover is too high, more expensive than the rental cost. I put all my personal details online that it should be sent to the car hire company so that I don't have to waste time on the counter but it wasn't like that, I had to re-fill there.
HeinrichSeptember 9, 2017
The car was very clean and in an excellent condition.
Nothing, everything was good.

less in fuel consumption

It was a lovely car a bit big for what I needed.
The key did not open the passenger side door (It opened all the others). I banged my head on the boot a few times as it is especially low.

convenience and great staff
1st vehicle had a problem with thetyre. A very dangerous situation left unchecked. Please check that damaged vehicles do not get handed out and does not remain with your fleet. If I used your arrive and drive service, I would be stuck with a damaged vehicle.

All good
August 19, 2017
Although a bit disappointed that I didn't get the specific car that I hired; the car I got was very good and economical. I will definitely consider re-booking the same car.
The process was embarrassingly slow.The guy who was completing the paperwork didn't seem to be sure of anything and kept asking for a colleague confirmation and this took for ever.
August 16, 2017
Friendly and fast.

The friendly and quick service. Great condition of the vehicles.
August 15, 2017
Whilst the booked car was a chevy spark, which is probably my most unlikely car, we received a Datsun Go. A very easy and pleasant car to drive. And so I say thank you, I was very happy.
MaritzaAugust 13, 2017
Excellent service

Staff is friendly
JudithJuly 20, 2017
It was a pleasant and easy experience hiring the car.
Nothing I didn't like. Putting a map of Cape Town in the car would help.
HilelJuly 8, 2017
Found office staff particularly friendly & very efficient. Regretfully I did not take the name of the official who helped me - I'm sure records will show - he deserves a commendation
the extremely high cost of insurance
OliverJune 27, 2017
Spacious and by and large met my requirements
the brakes were snatchy and I didn't like the hand brake. The big wing mirror made it hard to judge the position of the car when turning right. There were a lot of scratch marks and chips on what seemed a newish car. Perhaps a reality of driving in Cape Town

Casual, relaxed, helpful representative at mthatha airport

Car was previously used by a smoker and stale smell was evident, model of car bonnet has design fault which means it moves when you drive and appears open.

Overall ease of the booking and hiring process.
RonaldMarch 13, 2017
The car went well and provided us with the best size option for the amount of luggage we had.
The upgrade for an additional day rent was quite expensive.
March 8, 2017
The model of the car was a few years old.
MichaelMarch 6, 2017
Quick efficient staff with big smiles to welcome us in hot weather after a 12 hour flight, really appreciated. We always use Thrifty for exactly that reason, not only in SA.

Really good car and efficient counter and car park staff.
All good with this hire.
March 1, 2017
Easy to find the counter but it is a fair walk. Staff very good and very nice car.
Cape Town is a busy city and in some parts, with cars double parked, the roads are narrow!
February 27, 2017
The car was very comfortable and spacious for 4 passengers (Nissan X-Trail
Car was underpowered for 4 people plus luggage.
