Ian Cardiff Downtown 21 April 2017
the upgrade of the car the reasonable price, especially the unlimited mileage the quick turnaround the willingness of the staff to tune the car radio for me my only concern was that it was a diesel car, but it performed well and did not leak fumes .

Had a lovely little car that was easy to get use to. Also looked nice and new. Staff were brilliant and very friendly. Was a bit confused about what documents I needed to provide.

Great service on pick up. No having gps . Dreadful trying to locate drop off at Heathrow Airport without gps - absolutely no signage in the airport anywhere. Very frustrating.

Ease and efficiency of Thrifty staff both at Cardiff and Gatwick Airport. Both locations were easy to locate. Will definitely use Thrifty again when needing to rent a car. No negatives, just positives!
