Friendly, polite and helpful staff. Good value for money booking online and to receive an upgrade was a real bonus. I will definitely be looking to book here again.
Booked through a third party and their directions to the car hire desk could have been clearer.

Farah was a fantastic customer service rep and really went the extra mile (was the last customer for the day). She even gave me a bottle of water for the road. :)
Took a bit of time to return the car.
SeanJanuary 31, 2017
Very good all-round service
Waiting in the freezing cold to be picked up
January 24, 2017
staff were fantastic at both pick up and drop off
AndrewJanuary 22, 2017
Car was exactly as requested and had all the extras in it (Sat Nav was especially handy). Car was immaculate and almost new and the guy doing the handover went through all the things that often take a while to work out which was good.
Location offsite was a little remote and the shuttle from / to airport took a while but nothing to bad.
JulieJanuary 19, 2017
The service, the car performance, the price, good value for money.

Just location, would be better closer to airport
September 12, 2016
Very impressed with Thrifty staff. Courteous and helpful. Explained purpose of car hire and offered choice of 2 vehicles. Advised to take one particular vehicle and this was very helpful.
August 1, 2016
The staff are very helpful
changes in dropping of and the fuel return full, used to be drop back then use hire car to fill up on way to airport drop off which is not now the case
July 15, 2016
Staff were very courteous and helpful.
Not Thrifty's problem but drop off at Glasgow airport was a it of a walk from the terminal building.
AlisonJune 30, 2016
The lady at Trafford was extremely helpful
No one at rental cars mentioned that I had to pay to take my car back in the early hours
June 29, 2016
Not having to use the shuttle bus to the car rental village at Manchester Airport.
Difficulty in contacting the rental office via the courtesy phone.
June 27, 2016
Car was very good. clean and the make and model i chose
June 26, 2016
I liked the convenience of picking the car up at the airport & the good customer service given at the thrifty reception.
JohnJune 20, 2016
The car type I ordered a Passat and got a Hyundai Tucson - bit of a bait and switch. Also no refund when I returned the car three days earlier than initially planned.
PeterJune 14, 2016
Staff were excellent.

Friendly counter staff, good value for 7 seater car
Hassle of pick up and drop away from main car rental zone
PETERMay 6, 2016
nice little car, perfect for two people with limited baggage
car radio impossible to understand how to reset etc being collected from airport was a problem as I was not told which level we were to stand, now we know
March 26, 2016
There was no instructions on how to contact Thrifty upon arrival. All other car hire firms are clearly marked.
January 26, 2016
When arriving at the desk been told I have to produce a current utility invoice and a copy of my credit card statement. Passport. I was somewhat surprised, but I duly drove 30 minute round trip to collect the documents. On my return the second lady who took care of my booking was very polite and nice. Could you make it clearly what documentation
January 20, 2016
I was delighted that the staff on pick up did not keep trying to get me to upgrade my insurance or any make any other sale. Staff were polite, helpful, understanding and a delight to deal with. Drop off was swift, no waiting for a bus transfer and again staff were delightful.
IanJanuary 11, 2016
Very helpful and friendly staff.
Couldn't keep the car! Great vehicle.
January 8, 2016
Courtesy and infortmation given from the team
January 6, 2016
Efficiency of staff
Would of been more convenient if rental was at rental village
RichardJanuary 4, 2016
Car was Ok and automatic and ran very well.
All the extra costs (that are refunded admittedly), but it appears excessive to rent a car in the UK nowadays! Thrifty offices out on a limb in strange location from the airport!!! Needs moving to be with all the other car hire companies!!!
AnthonyNovember 9, 2015
They picked me up from the airport, we're very friendly, gave me advice about the local roads going out. Car was brand new, had 100 miles on the clock. When I dropped the car off, everything took less than 5 minutes and they were again really friendly. Then they offered to drop me off wherever I needed to be, first class service, will use again.
Nothing to report.
AnthonyNovember 4, 2015
Friendly staff and great choice of cars
Large deposit and inability to drop insurance excess down to zero
September 5, 2015
Good clean car.
Location of rental company. Operation hours may be inconvenient as our flight left very early in the morning.
August 30, 2015
i was encouraged to get an upgrade. as single only `I did not need a large car . I was offered a saloon family care. I did not care for this fortunately there was a small Fiat which was perfect for me. I would prefer not to be encouraged the upgrade. I was travelling through small country roads in Wales and the Fiat was perfect
warrenAugust 22, 2015
Car was good and very economical
Sat-nav was confusing in the vw
HeatherAugust 11, 2015
the staff were friendly and efficient. Car was nippy, economical and clean. I liked the office being off site as it took the stress out of driving into the airport for me.
I wouldn't have known it was off site has i not read the reviews where I discovered what to do - which helped a lot
DavidJuly 24, 2015
Car was better than expected and the newest hire car I have ever had
July 17, 2015
