Everything was fine. No comments
Keith Christchurch Domestic Airport 10 February 2018
Car was fine for just two people and luggage. First Yaris from Christchurch to Picton was quite new and in excellent order. Second Yaris from Wellington to Auckland was somewhat older. Pick up at Wellington was delayed as my ferry time was brought forward at very short notice and I forgot to contact Thrifty about this. Second Yaris has a tyre that was in quite a poor state, but I only spotted this towards the end of the rental period. Not sure if it had been serviced prior to my collecting it as that service was due at 51,000km and I was going to taking the car through that threshold during the rental period.

Young lady at the rental desk was very friendly and efficient. Not used to the drop off procedure of just parking the car in the return lot at the ferry, locking it and dropping the key off and not having received a statement. Felt better when we checked in to our motel in Picton when I saw the car in the rental lot ready for the next customer. Glad when the email statement came the next dayb
