Ease of pick up and delivery
All was good
GeoffreySeptember 30, 2017
Quickness of the process when you are at the airport is important and this time was excellent.
RobertSeptember 25, 2017
Car was clean, tidy and everything worked. We took a trip into the mountains and the car dealt with the ups and downs, twists and turns very easily.
Can't think of anything.
RobertaSeptember 24, 2017
good service at Sydney airport
the car seened like it couldnt change back into gear I rang up from Heathcoat and was able to change the car in wollongomgalthough this took nearly 2 hours due to the fact that there was only one person on
RobertSeptember 22, 2017
Car was great, did exactly what I needed. Lady that I dropped the car off too was very friendly and made it all easy.

Size and comfort

Extended the hire by a day by phone no problems, E toll tag system good to have as standard
WendyAugust 18, 2017
Got the type of car I booked.
Insurance deal. Didn't need it thankfully but if I had I understand I would have had to pay Thrifty the excess , then claim from Rentalcars insurance company.

Everything was a1. Would use Thrifty anytime.
July 11, 2017
I got the exact car that I want
The cable charger of GPS is not good (same experience as last year).
RaymondJuly 9, 2017
The upgrade and helpfulness of staff
The unreliable GPS which would not let me put in the address I wanted and on one occasion took us in totally the wrong direction.
KerrieJuly 1, 2017
Speed and ease of pick up and drop off
Getting into car park at the airport. But that is not the car rentals fault.
June 30, 2017
Easiness of booking the vehicle and staff were helpful when picking up and dropping of the vehicle. I made a mistake, I would definitely recommend Thriffy.
June 30, 2017
Counter staff, process of pickup and return, car itself all good
Car rattles a bit but probably cos of all the potholes : )
ROBERTJune 12, 2017
I experienced some difficulty finding my way back into the drop off car park.
SharonJune 8, 2017
Very quick and efficient - and a great price!
I would have liked it if the car was parked a little closer
AnthonyJune 7, 2017
More directions re: drop off
June 1, 2017

our upgrade was cheap and we ended up driving a brand new Mercedes
May 22, 2017
Pick up was greatly delayed due to break down of computer system.
JohnMay 21, 2017
Didn't offer a refund even though I dropped the car off a day earlier
StevenMay 21, 2017
He was dealing with a damaged car which took a little time. Very helpful and assisted us with our luggage.
Nothing to comment on.
May 18, 2017
Very pleasant and efficient staff member at the desk
The Thrifty desk in the airport terminal was closed, which wasn't immediately apparent. Please place a sign on the counter making it clear that clients should proceed straight to the car park.
PeterMay 18, 2017
Easy drop off
The car was a little "tired " A car with less kilometers on it would be preferable
May 15, 2017
Money for value car was clean nice to drive well looked after the person on reception when I dropped the car off was approachable and friendly.
The person on reception when we picked up the car made us wait for over ten minutes due to a phone conversation not even a hand gesture or eye contact and then wrote the wrong bay number was not very helpful.
AlbinMay 15, 2017
Attractive price, booked a day before, got an upgrade, super efficient service, amazing car.
It would be useful to state if it's Domestic or International Airport on the printed reservation confirmation (; I had to go online, and double check.
KennethMay 12, 2017
The car drove perfectly. The staff were great.
I'm always edgy when there are a few minor marks on the car already. And there was in case i'm asked to pay for the marks already there. But that happens no matter who i rent off. And repay of the deposit could be quicker. OK I get it takes 2 business days but still it's my money.
martinMay 8, 2017
very easy, great fuel economy
CrosbieMay 3, 2017
Staff were helpfu, polite.
April 22, 2017
the right size for the purpose
the Toyota Yaris was not a car I would drive visibility was poor due to bad dash reflection in windscreen
RamanathanApril 20, 2017
Ease and no hassel
April 12, 2017
Nice. Car, clean inside but exterior dirty.
1. The airport terminal (Arrivals) personnel would not accept a standard UK paper licence, we had to go to the Thrifty car office at the collection point to put our case forward. The second person we dealt with was more experienced and there were no further problems. 2. There was minor bodywork damage to the car which was not on the paperwork.
JustinApril 3, 2017
Nice modern car
Took ages to pick up the car, looked unorganised at the time of pick up
April 2, 2017
Dirty windscreen
KenMarch 31, 2017
All good
IanMarch 27, 2017
The car has to be returned to the airport with a full tank of petrol Thrifty should let customers know what petrol station on the way in to use as the nearest I saw inbound was about twenty Kilometres from drop of as there was nothing on the Sydney airport complex incurring an additional charge for petrol.
StarMarch 24, 2017
Easy access, booking service 1st rate..
Forgot to check fuel before we left it was not full, however we couldn't get through to report it and needed phone for NAV. We still returned car with full tank.
AndrewMarch 15, 2017
Nice car in good condition
Counter staff were in no hurry to serve me. The counter inside the terminal was unmanned and didnt say where to go to find their other counter
