Gerald Canberra Airport 10 April 2018
Excellent location at the airport. Asked for a GPS. Didn't get one. Asked for maps to where we were travelling, Thrifty only had a City map, and we were not heading into the City, which made it difficult when you are not familiar with the area. If GPS cannot be provided, maps would be helpful.

Proximity to airport, very efficient staff. Car was in excellent condition. I would still prefer to have the choice of manual or auto. Price differences between cities.

Car is OK cheap to refuel runs well on the highway The design of the car is very low in the front and it is in many cases lower than curbs that you park against. It is easy to touch the curb when parking

Lovely car, easy to deal with Thrifty, would come again. Nothing to complain about.
Anonymous Canberra Airport 13 January 2018
The car was almost brand new and very affordable. I was surprised at the cost and found it very reasonable. I was surprised that I had to pay a deposit on top of already paying the hire fee in advance.
Anonymous Canberra Airport 10 January 2018
Brand new car with only 1000kms on it easy to drive and cheap to run When we picked up the car there was dry red mud/dirt on the plastic area inside the car (back passenger side) and dirty mark on drivers side front pillar - car was washed but could see it was done quickly
