Anonymous Johannesburg Airport 02 December 2017
Staff at the airport was very helpful and kind. We extended our agreement but procedure was very unreasonable. Additional rent for a day was equals to five day's rent we paid throuh agent on website. Another option was return the car to the nearest Thrifty then make new agreement on website even they gave us the exact same car.Most of countries, just a phone call make extention.
