It was a peak period in Townsville with hire costs well above normal rates.

Need car mats in the vehicle.

The automatic upgrade. The navigation system.
We didn't know how to turn the navigation system off. Very annoying man talking whilst you are trying to listen to the radio. Not his fault we couldn't find it in the manual.

Car was very good.
Credit card was not accepted by machine. Bank advised me that credit card was pristine and should have been accepted. Perhaps faulty machine.

Fast service
The person on the desk at the counter was a bit firm and relactant to help in arranging extra day rent.

was easy to pick up
IanNovember 4, 2015
The pick up staff member was helpful, informative and professional.
The drop off staff member was non-communicative and totally disinterested. He did not say a word except grunting at the keys.

The staff's knowledgeable and professionalism.
The lack of information by the third party.
August 31, 2015
The car was excellent to drive & comfortable.
When taking out of insurance on vehicle through car hire website it is unclear who you are dealing with &insuring with & from where. You think you are dealing with just the car hire Company only, but you aren't . We had to double up on insurance to be totally covered, which then increased the cost of hiring a car. This should be clearly stated on these sites .

The easy accessibility to thrifty counter in Townsville airport.
Since petrol stations were very scare in Townsville perhaps a map given with paperwork when collecting car would have been handy. Overall every thing good.

RogerJuly 31, 2015
Loved the car we were upgraded doesn't happen much to us so we were thrilled to bits.
BruceJuly 28, 2015
The car was roomy, big boot, and performed well.
The car a KIA OPTIMA, had an intermittent bad accelerator delay, which occasionally caused frustration and passenger discomfort (when the accelerator finally responded).
CherylJuly 11, 2015
excellent service at the counter. Drop off was very good, the lady at the counter was lovely.
MichaelJuly 9, 2015
brand new car, and the price
counter staff was very slow. no staff at counter on return.
June 1, 2015
weren't told where everything was in the car so experienced some trouble in the dark at petrol station finding out how to open tank.
June 1, 2015
The lady that served us was very pleasant and efficient.
We waited so long to get served. The customer in front of us took so long. It would have been great if the lady just excused herself, asked if we had a booking gave us what we needed to fill in. She could have done with another person at the counter, just for when flight arrive if they have more than one booking. The car was a reasonable size, a bit squeezy for 3 adults in the back, especially the middle seat. We had trouble locating the rear middle seat belt.
MargaretMay 23, 2015
Car upgrade was a pleasant surprise
Misrepresentation of the excess reduction
April 23, 2015
Almost brand new vehicle . Pleasant & helpful Thrifty Rep on desk. Easy return procedure .
That I had to give it back ... would have loved to have kept it.

All good !!!!!
KennethNovember 20, 2014
Air conditioning and comfort.
RichardNovember 12, 2014
ease of service with no complications. I presume all deposits have been refunded or released?
I hoped I was renting a Nissan Tida but got a hyundai( which I understand is a class c equivalent). Nevertheless the car was great.
adamNovember 4, 2014
Condition of vehicle, easy to find. Return very easy.Free second driver option much appreciated.
Insurance costs very high, rates should relate more to driver age, experience and license type.
WilliamSeptember 26, 2014
Loved the car. Everything was very good .
StephenSeptember 26, 2014
I had an email from a manager saying that we had possibly returned the car damaged. This turned out to be a mistake. An apology was given which was fine, but it still upset my wife and I all the same. Steve Baron

Great Service
MarkSeptember 21, 2014
The car's fuel economy.
1. Waiting time to collect the car keys. 2. Cost of the fuel if the car wasn't returned full.

The i45 was very good on fuel, we only had to fill it up once for the whole week and we drove the car all over Townsville. The car was close to the terminal to pick up and drop off, I would recommend thrifty to people who are thinking off hiring a car in Townsville.
LeoAugust 4, 2014
The Kia was very much luxury standard and great to drive.
1. Pressure to get me to take additional insurance 2. The Kia was a really nice car. Why it is sold when booked as a "Subaru"? The Thrifty car park contained no Subarus.
DennisAugust 1, 2014
Car was very clean and up to date, staff at desk very helpful.
Desk was unattended when I returned car, just left keys in slot. Unable to confirm return of car with staff member.
MargaretJuly 25, 2014
Good car. Very happy with it.
I booked this car on line. Not realizing that it was an overseas. Was disappointed that I had to pay again for the removal of the excess, because the overseas one may not have covered what I thought it might have. Therefore it ended up being more expensive then I had initially bugeted for.
PeterJuly 11, 2014
Friendly staff and a lift to the train station when rental finished.
JamesJuly 1, 2014
Good quality small car
