Smell of cigarette smoke in the car
BerndSeptember 11, 2017
the drop off for Hertz, Thrifty and Dollar was located far from the airport and a shuttle service bus was needed - when I arrived an abandoned car park was there and no sign of the needed "transfers shuttle procedure" - it used to be that the drop off was located in walking distance to the airport and this new change was nowhere announced.

Tom tom maps need to be updated. Our tom tom charge wire was broken at the pickup and the device shutted off during our first journey on a german highway, not a good experience
September 1, 2017

Easy to pick up, counter right at the exit after picking up bags.
August 29, 2017
Great car - Ford Focus. Good mileage.
Excruciatingly long line at the hire counter. With 2.5yr old twins, this was an absolute nightmare.
MichelleAugust 29, 2017
Very impressed with the speed in which it was all done
MichaelAugust 26, 2017
Got the type of car I expected
Charges to cross borders into Austria and Switzerland for a couple of days. Headlights not automatic. Black colour in hot weather
August 26, 2017
Never any issue always new cars
You don't get car as advertised ever. Should state at time size of car small,med ,large not model.
August 20, 2017
The vehicle was good and the counter service was also good
RolfAugust 19, 2017
Got a near new car. Booking details were available and allocation of car was no problem. Drop off was easy and quick. Location of pickup and drop off area was convenient.
The car was not ready at pickup time, had to wait 50 minutes. Car was not thoroughly cleaned.
August 18, 2017
Nearly new car , lower cost than all other major suppliers
Fuel guage on full tank did not read full so had concern than charge would be made for fill up on return
August 17, 2017
Good service at pick up point and no hard sell for once for extra insurance
Not the car I was expecting - car given was tight on space.
August 13, 2017

MichaelJuly 28, 2017
Excellent service, both thrifty and considerate.
AdamJuly 24, 2017
Desk Service
Nobody visible in the pick up area to report issues (damage). Queue time was ridiculous
PeterJuly 24, 2017
I specifically picked a vehicle that would likely be diesel. I was given another vehicle that was petrol, and not geared well for long distance.
July 24, 2017
Distance from desk to actual vehicle. The girl at the pick-up desk was very helpful.
1) Insurance premium for the full cover was rather steep for 5 days. 2) For a 57 bloke, a whiter than white Nissan Juke came as a bit of a surprise. I felt like Barbie, and got a few smiles at the event I was competing in ! :(
ArunasJuly 22, 2017
Car power

Excellent customer service
Nothing- all was good. Will use it again
MarkJuly 19, 2017
Easy to deal with
AdrianJuly 15, 2017
New car low mileage, clean and gas no problems with it
It wasn't an estate as was supposed to be
July 14, 2017
Upgraded to a Ford Kuga automatic - nice car
Price was expensive - especially as I will have to at a little more as I was badly delayed on the way back and didn't have time to fill the car up
PetrusJuly 10, 2017
Amazing value (VW Golf) for money
Car had a scratch not marked on paper so required additional follow up.
StefanJune 29, 2017
The car (Ford Focus) was good. The price was OK. Easy to pick up compared to Edinburgh airport last year. Quick pick up and drop off procedures. Transparent pricing.
There could have been clearer instructions on where to return the car since Frankfurt airport is quite large. I found the entrance to the basement by chance (there was actually a large good sign at the entrance), but there were no clear instructions once down in the basement.
ErkkiJune 25, 2017
In the reservation document it said that the car would seat seven people plus have toim for three big bags but it turned out that there was practically no space for luggage so we needed to rent another car as well.
AlexanderJune 20, 2017
Dropping off Missed an aerial that was broken when I picked it up, should have taken a picture!
June 19, 2017
Very easy to book
Had trouble locating the car hire car park in Düsseldorf.
TizianoJune 16, 2017
I did book a Ford Fiesta I think with 5 doors, but I got a sport version nice for Young people but not for a business man .
June 12, 2017
The spec of the car was really good.
Lack of clarity with regards to the location of the Thrifty desk, e.g. You need to use the Hertz desk!
SimoneJune 12, 2017
All fine
June 11, 2017
Speed of pickup
Damage report written only in German without a picture.
