great car-brand new car and upgrade.
the cost, had to hire two days.
November 17, 2017
Excellent service throughout the process.
I had to ask for additional damage on car at pickup to be noted on forms.
August 30, 2017
Thank you for great service. Highly recommended.
August 29, 2017
Great car - Ford Focus. Good mileage.
Excruciatingly long line at the hire counter. With 2.5yr old twins, this was an absolute nightmare.
MichaelAugust 26, 2017
Got the type of car I expected
Charges to cross borders into Austria and Switzerland for a couple of days. Headlights not automatic. Black colour in hot weather
August 26, 2017
Never any issue always new cars
You don't get car as advertised ever. Should state at time size of car small,med ,large not model.
August 17, 2017
Good service at pick up point and no hard sell for once for extra insurance
Not the car I was expecting - car given was tight on space.
AdamJuly 24, 2017
Desk Service
Nobody visible in the pick up area to report issues (damage). Queue time was ridiculous
AdrianJuly 15, 2017
New car low mileage, clean and gas no problems with it
It wasn't an estate as was supposed to be
ErkkiJune 25, 2017
In the reservation document it said that the car would seat seven people plus have toim for three big bags but it turned out that there was practically no space for luggage so we needed to rent another car as well.
JohnApril 17, 2017
All fine
PeterJanuary 4, 2017
When I finally got to the front of the queue, car was issued with no hard unnecessary insurance upsell. Simple return process.
Paid for a manual Insignia estate or equivalent, issued an automatic Ford Tourneo mini van... not enough staff on Christmas Eve, and unrecorded damage, inoperative rear wiper and ugly rental car sticker taking up 20% of rear window. No option to book and reserve a specific car type.
DavidAugust 1, 2016
Good value nice car straightforward booking
Lack of queuing system at the airport for collection. No car manual in English
July 29, 2016
that it takes up to 7 working days to release the credit card hold !!
ThiagoMay 9, 2016
The car and the drop off were very nice and I had a fast service.
The counter was poorly signalised and the queue took around 45 min - but the lady that helped us was very friendly and fast.
AlexanderApril 3, 2016
Efficient and professional of the staff to give and to dropp of the car.
MatthewMarch 29, 2016
The in car Sat nav was in German (understandably as it was Munich), but I'd love to have been able to change language so we could use it. I had to use my own portable sat nav instead!
StevenMarch 6, 2016
Miles per gallon was excellent
It wasn't a car I would have chosen, nor the car I had requested. Back seat folded down in one, no split which was inconvenient, would have been no good had 3 passengers been travelling..
January 9, 2016
New car
Limited speed at 140km/h. Limited volume too.
November 16, 2015
The upgrade Friendliness at the desk Swift pick up
July 27, 2015
todo perfecto el coche y el servicio
la espera en la oficina de Hertz del aeropuerto de munich. HAbia mucha gente y solo dos personas atendiendo y una de ella no era muy eficiente.
July 27, 2015
Very clean car.
AnnetteJuly 22, 2015
Unexpectedly got a 4-door car...were very pleased.
The gas tank was definitely not at Full but I had no time to complain, do something about it.
alessandroJune 30, 2015
staff kindness, organization, easy to find, fast pick up and fast drop off
expensive rate for daily full coverage
June 9, 2015
Length of queue and lack of efficiency at munich
June 8, 2015
Prices were different from the online prices and hence, over budget. The price on the portal and in the counter should be in sync.
May 27, 2015
The model car was not a small family car as we had asked but instead an eight seater transporter. Whilst the car was new it did not feel reliable. The engine noise was disconcerting.
May 5, 2015
Nice car, a good experience. Thanks
davidDecember 10, 2014
Very high spec new car, superb navigation system, friendly knowledgable staff at car hire office.
Trying to locate the car rental drop off point on a very foggy early morning in Munich airport.
SergiuNovember 15, 2014
the car was in perfect conditions and had a lot of extras...
I couldn't find a petrol station in the neighbourhood of the Airport, but this is not a Thrifty/Buchbinder fault...
November 6, 2014
When you come out of the flight it is really hard to find the rental cardesks. No signs to help you on the way.
majedNovember 4, 2014
I hope to deal with same company again
No thing. Every things are fine
KawtherOctober 28, 2014
Everything was okay over my aspectation.. Only the pick up took 2 hours.
October 24, 2014
excellent condition of the car and ease of collecting the car. Car drop off at a second airport was excellent and speedy.
A bit unclear where to find the car.
PaulOctober 23, 2014
Very good car with low kms.
Satnav quite unreliable particularly near final destination. On two occasions. Approx 2 kms off course.
IOANNISOctober 23, 2014
Very good service. Excellent staff. Pleasant and helpful. I had requested a VW Golf and they gave me a 7 seats CMAX. The car was new and in excellent condition.
To collect a rented car in Munich Airport is a bit frustrating. But this is true for all rent a car companies in Munich JStraus and not specific to Thrifty.
October 22, 2014
We had a little issue with additional chairs in rare part of a car. We succeeded to remove them only after finding a movie and instructions in the web. The manual book in the car would be very helpful.
VictorOctober 14, 2014
price was very competitive
The time it took to collect the vehicle was too long and there were only to counters open and the process was very slow
MaayanOctober 13, 2014
expensive additional driver cost
October 1, 2014
Everything was great I will book again through Thrifty
September 26, 2014
It's very good company , and the staff is very very nice people , also the car is very good
LOWSeptember 13, 2014
Staff helpful
Car was not in the place described so took a long time to find the car
September 10, 2014
Reasonabe prices, car was as advertised.
Long wait in airport to collect car.
September 4, 2014
Good price,and good service.
KONSTANTINOSAugust 24, 2014
Booked Opel corsa or similar. Got Opel Adam which has good engine and availability of speed control.
Old damages not properly recorded, require thorough check by customer before getting the car, very small boot space with no adjustability.
August 15, 2014
fast and efficient collection
picky return
July 27, 2014
It was almost impossible to find the way to rental car return because their was too little signs.
July 26, 2014
We have to wait almost one hour as there were no free car
July 24, 2014
The car was truly excellent, spotless and in great condition.
I know it was late, the luggage took an age. But the procedure to sort out the car took an age, and when we got to the car the guy who was supposed to check it out with us was nowhere to be seen. I assume the car was as it was supposed to be. But I couldn't find the wipers, I had a problem with the lights and no handbook. Having said that the car was super clean, very low mileage, and once I found out where everything was it was a joy to drive. One final tip, fill the car up in good time because once you get near the airport petrol stations seem to disappear.
July 19, 2014
price, airport location
3 out of 4 times the car wasn't ready
