Fantastic service
ROBERTNovember 16, 2017
Counter staff excellent and speedy pick up. I had rung in advance to say that our train had been delayed and that we would be arriving over an hour outside the original time on our agreement. we were ensured that this would not be a problem and that was the case. Excellent. Friendly drop off staff in melbourne.

I booked an EcoSport Ford which is a mini SUV. Once the Thrifty staff found out that I'm going from Adelaide to Melbourne, she upgraded the car for free! So, I enjoyed driving a more comfortable and safe car, Mitsubishi ASX at this long journey.

Very friendly & helpful lady served us at the counter on arrival & a very friendly gentleman met us at the airport when we returned our vehicle. Experience with Thrifty staff was excellent.

October 22, 2017
The car ran well, we were comfortable, and the size was right of Australian travel.
When we first got the car we could smell were someone had smoked in it. It was very slight and gone by the next day.
StefanOctober 22, 2017
Awesome car, did exactly what we wanted. Bit thirsty but very good.
Nothing I like Thrifty would definitly recommend you.
WarrenOctober 17, 2017
The speed to pick up and drop off was impressive. Also great small vehicle.
October 2, 2017
Very helpful service. I called Thrifty as soon as possible about a wheel noise after I picked it up and they let me take the car straight back and exchange for another of the same but without the noise.
GPS was very slow indeed and no manual and not easy to use. I reverted to phone holder and google maps. My initial car made a worrying wheel noise, but was exchanged for another, helpfully.

a great car
June 21, 2017
Beautiful car and wonderful staff and felt we had good value.
We struggled with finding the drop off in Melbourne. The sat nav provided kept taking us to an out of CBD industrial Williams Street. We eventually needed to use our own map in iPhone. Took an hour for what should have been 20 mins to the location.

Good service
No car mats to hold dirt
MaryMay 13, 2017
The upgrade. It wasn't expected but worked really well.
Why do different Thrifty dealerships have different holding deposits. Very confusing for business travellers.

LindaApril 26, 2017
Great car, great service.
The cost of the insurance! Ridiculously expensive!! Would deter me from renting a car again any time soon.

Drop off took 30 minutes.

Ease of transition
Nothing comes to mind

The outside of the car was dirty
EdgarApril 19, 2017
The service at the desk and the upgrade
The location of the car park office and trying to get there at Adelaide office. Should have signs as we could see the office but there was a wall between and then noticed we had to walk all the way to one end, cross the road and then all the way back down.

customer service in finding & fitting car seat

The staff were very friendly
The only thing I would have preferred was to have a GPS with the car, but we were given a street directory and was happy with that.

thrifty make the process of hiring easy.
the upgrade seemed a good idea at first but several days later when trying to get my infirm uncle into the car it was too high. So we swapped cars for the original class we ordered. the staff at melb airport were very good.

KinMarch 1, 2017
Really nothing that I didn't like.
February 26, 2017
The vehicle was exactly as requested.
Vehicle was only booked 20 minutes before pick up and took 20 minutes to be brought around.
February 25, 2017
The thrifty return counter being the furtherest away from airport entrance in Adelaide and the car not being washed and buffed on the outside, clean on the inside though.
JeremyFebruary 21, 2017
Easy to get and pick up the car
I would have preferred the Toyota Corolla rather than the Hyundi I30 equivalent (as I use a Corolla at home so the transition would have been easier).
KaranFebruary 19, 2017
Nice friendly service when picking up car.
I was disappointed that a representative did not walk me around the see if there were any bumps or scratches. Had to do this myself
