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 car.to see if there were any bumps or scratches. Had to do this myself

Ease of process from start to finish, ability to check hire details on-line. Rental location was well signed at Adelaide Airport and Thrifty area was well marked. Vehicle was supplied with full tank of petrol and not part filled.

JeremyApril 13, 2016
Booked a two-door car because we were on a budget but ended up with a four-door which was much more convenient. Loved the car, which was clean, easy to drive, and very fuel efficient. Helpful staff.

warm attitude and efficiency of the staff, car condition.
ErrolApril 7, 2016
The car was great for our purpose. We Had no problems.
The car had a couple of damage areas, I had to initiate attention to these areas. The car could have had a good wash externally and been a little better prepared inside, vacuum.
