Patrick Basel Airport 02 October 2017
I wasn't used to a Volvo 40. The venting system was too hot and not obvious to use. It has an automatic parking brake that gave a shock when leaving on a slope and the refuelling wasn't easy either. A brief technical explanation would have been grateful. Inside, the car was clean but the outside needed to get a wash. A car without GPS in 2017?
Anonymous Basel Airport 29 August 2017
When I book the car, I always need to fill out all personal info, but when I pick up the car, I still need to repeat everything to the agent. Why?
Peter Basel Airport 22 August 2017
Although it wasn't ordered the volvo D3 was a great drive, and quite economic Volvo D3 basic in terms of spec and I didnt order a manual
Jawad Basel Airport 21 August 2017
Very friendly staff Thrifty had contract with Hertz and i was told to pay to Hertz in case of any accident and claim it back from Thrifty. This arrangement should be between them rather me. We returned the car without any issues.

Very accommodating!! Ensured we had an automatic vehicle to drive! Great staff!! Although it took a little but to find an automatic for us they did and guaranteed the beginning of our vacation started off without a hitch!! They didn't have an automatic for us but tried hard to correct it ASAP
