Awesome staff, super friendly and helpful.
August 3, 2017
No chains included and none at the depot.
AndrewJuly 27, 2017
We ordered the car with snow chains, however, these were not on the order through to Thrifty, so were unavailable. Which was disappointing considering we were in Queenstown and the high chance they would be required driving to the ski fields.
RodneyJuly 10, 2017
Good staff very accommodating, vehicle was in very good condition.
The carpark at Queenstown could do with more signage to locate Thrifty a long way to walk with luggage when it's pouring rain and your not sure where you are heading

The condition of the car.
Nothing about the car that I didn't like. I just thought that the insurance was quite expensive. I paid quite a bit for the car so I expected the insurance would be a bit cheaper.
April 17, 2017
Staff very helpful with directions and maps. Car was spotless.
I wanted a corolla but we were not given one.
April 17, 2017
Service and efficiency.
Holden Trax exteremly uncomfortable for both of us. When class advertised as Corolla or similar would not of expect high riding uncomfortable trax.

The experience was absolutely trouble free and allowed us to have a great holiday.

No problems arose during the rental period
An airport matter but the distance to walk to the thrifty park from the terminal
April 3, 2017
Hassle free pick-up and drop-off. Car was a Ssangyong Tivoli, which we'd never heard of but it proved to be a great car.

good car
January 31, 2017
Car was near new and drove very well
As we own a RAV4 we would have preferred that it is a better car than the X-Trail in our opinion
January 20, 2017
very easy pick up and drop off, friendly staff and best of all - we got the car we wanted and it was almost brand new.
the car wasn't dirty but could have been a bit cleaner on pick up.
HeinrichJanuary 18, 2017
Can recommend both rental cars and Trifty

Cost of petrol in NZ

no parking bays on drop off and was furtherest from airport
November 21, 2016
the staff were superb - helpful and kind
I did not enjoy driving that model of car (Ssanyong instead of the Toyota I was expecting) and will ask for a different car if, in future, I wanted to hire a car for a longer period.
SimonNovember 19, 2016
The Irish girl at the desk in Queenstown was particularly helpful, great service.
JulieNovember 15, 2016
Staff at pick up in Queenstown

October 30, 2016
Everything nothing to fault.
BrentonOctober 22, 2016
Queenstown thrifty staff were very helpful and polite. We had to what 35 minutes for the car to be cleaned so the staff paid for our coffee . When we got the car it was not the corolla that we ordered we were given a sansung SUV. The car was great and so was our holiday in beautiful New Zealand
Car could of been wash on the out side better
FredOctober 17, 2016
I ordered a highlander from Queenstown and got a highlander which was an excellent vehicle for our needs.
The change over in Wellington we received a Hyundai Santa Fe and this was not a vehicle that we requested. It lacked power in hilly terrain and had less luggage space and leg room space for our needs.
October 15, 2016
The car!
The hidden extras we needed to pay
AnthonyOctober 13, 2016
Very friendly staff. Would definitely use again.
GeorgeSeptember 27, 2016
Great customer service
GlennSeptember 2, 2016
Comfortable, fuel efficient and the car never struggled in any circumstance. From booking on-line through to leaving the keys after drop off was seamless and trouble free. Ski racks very useful.
August 25, 2016
Car park access from drop off point at Queenstown airport
July 25, 2016
the overall cost of the car hire was a little expensive compared to many other places around the world.
