January 9, 2017
Very helpful, friendly and accommodating counter staff when picking up and dropping off
RobertJanuary 7, 2017
No Queue to pick up was good.
Booked a 1 series BMW but only equivalent available so upgraded instead. Could do with a sheltered area to drop/pickup luggage from. Directions to exit in the carpark are not very clear especially in the dark. Not clear if parts are one way or not.

The counter staff ( Particularly at pick up ) were excellent, a real friendly face and motivated to want to give you good service in what must be a very repetitive task
Need better signage at Gatwick.

Courtesy, price
benjamynNovember 23, 2016
Clean car, properly prepared
Check in process on return hopeless. Staff in location had to contact renting office at lhr, couldn't get through and expected me to wait for a long while whilst they kept trying - without success. Would put me off renting from that office and company if this is standard process.

Attitude of staff on pick up
October 14, 2016
Staff was really helpful when I had told them I'd booked the wrong functionality of a car, since I can't drive a manual, and they were really helpful finding me a automatic car in a really busy time. I would def do business with Thrifty again.

HAROONSeptember 21, 2016
the upgraded version condition of the vehical

September 21, 2016
When a car is booked much earlier, it is imperative that the desired car be made available more so when full payment is discharged.
September 20, 2016
It is a bit of a walk from the terminal but the money saving made it worthwhile. Very easy location to pick up car and load luggage etc, it is much more hasssle at the main car hire place.
michaelSeptember 19, 2016
car was not clean inside mileage charges

Car was excellent and in good condition
Having to sit and wait over thirty minutes after completing the paperwork whilst the car was cleaned and prepared at 9.30 in the evening
StephenSeptember 18, 2016
Helpful staff at pick up and drop off explained everything fully. M25 traffic caused delay on return and everone at Thrifty could not have helped more for a quick return process to get me to the flight on time. Great team work, thank you.

MarkSeptember 12, 2016
Friendliness of staff, transfer location from the airport to the office.
Car was not very clean and needed an external wash, the location in relation to the airport is not ideal being approx. 4 miles from the airport terminal.
September 11, 2016
Helpful staff.
MichaelSeptember 10, 2016
The car was modern and very trendy. It was spotless and in excellent condition. The price was very good. The office in Bournemouth was very friendly and the gentleman on duty Friday 11th was great. Will defiantly use Thrifty again.
Bus at Heathrow took a long time to arrive compared with other rental companies. The 0700 bus didn't come so we were all packed in one bus. Glad it wasn't bumpy as was sat on the seatbelt harness. Great non the less.
MarkSeptember 1, 2016
Excellent service from counter staff at Thrifty.
Problems trying to speak to Rentalcars on the telephone to amend the booking.
August 25, 2016
The location away from the general airport congestion is good.The deposit required for a 2 week rental was far less than other companies. Your staff did not try to push additional charges for insurance etc.It was easy to extend rental.
no problems

Friendly and professional staff and the fact that we got an upgrade!
NGOKAugust 1, 2016
As our family had more luggages than expected, I requested on the spot to hire a larger car. The lady at the reception counter at about 9pm on 19 July 2016 was very helpful. She first let our family see the original booked car and then other 2 larger cars for our final decision. We eventually rented a larger car. Big thanks to her.
