Online booking process Airport process to collect car took a while. Car also had an an blue warning Level light showing.

Received a BMW 218 automatic with sat nav. Lovely car to drive and had less than 10k km on the clock. The car had quite a few scrapes and scuffs on it but all were clearly marked on the paperwork received. It also took a long time to collect the vehicle. We had to collect a ticket and people who collected a ticket after me were seen before me as they were serving both Thrifty and Hertz. It was also a long walk to collect the car.

Directions to drop the car at madrid airport wasn't clear enough.

The cars ( I ended up with 2 different ones due to getting a flat tyre) that Hertz provided were excellent. Much better than the other two that were hired from rival companies in Malaga airport by my other family. The signs for Hertz and layout of the car park was confusing. I only knew that Thrifty was Hertz because there was a small sentence saying services by Hertz on my online print out paperwork so I was looking for Thrifty first rather than Hertz at the airport. I didn’t rent straight from flying in which made it more complicated.

The rental desk was just after passing the security control + we were able to leave the car after hours, just parked it and left the key in a box It took as a while to find out way to the car it is not very well signed.

Nice car
Anonymous Malaga Airport 27 September 2017
Returning the car was much easier than in previous uses in Malaga airport as the returns area is nearer the departure areas Insufficient choice of car or model on collection when the exact booked car was not available and then having to wait over 45 minutes for it to arrive. I chose Thrifty because even as one of the more expensive hire firms service is normally much easier and quicker.
Anonymous Malaga Airport 17 September 2017
easiness of the pick up / drop off car was damaged all down one side which was a worry if I hadn't picked it up on arival
Anonymous Malaga Airport 16 September 2017
Car was excellent, always rent a Thrifty car at Malaga airport and always pleased with service. Assistant at desk was particularly pleasant and efficient as was the assistant when returned the car. Location of car pick up and return has changed since last year - this used to be really easy. This is not well sign posted and it took almost an hour to locate the car when picking up. On return - again not well sign posted and took almost an hour driving round to find the location of Thrifty.

nice and clean car not many mileage drop off was very fast and friendly no windscreen washer water waiting time (over 20min) was too long (even if we advised what time I would pick up the car)
Redouane Malaga Airport 23 July 2017
clean and brand new car It seems we had to park the car, in a spot before we give the keys back, which is quite uncommon. We did not know so we went straight to drop it off, and the personnel at the counter looked surprised and were a bit cold in the way they told us.
Anonymous Malaga Airport 10 July 2017
The person that served me was not very friendly or helpful. The two people on either side were very friendly and helpful.

Short queue at pick up desk Low mileage nearly new Peugeot 108 Fast drop off near departure terminal
Anonymous Malaga Airport 26 June 2017
First car offered had a damaged front bumper (detached on the near side). I had to point out that it could be dangerous at speed and could cause tyre damage before the staff agreed to change it. I then had to wait for a replacement vehicle.

rafael Malaga Airport 06 June 2017
The car was what I was expecting. The car was delivery quick. Friendly staff. The signing at the airport parking to deliver the car wasn't very clear. I would recomend to put a sign at the parking entrance ground floor comany xx,yy; 1st floor zz,Thrifty. I lost nearly 15 to 20 min because of the confusion.
RONALD Malaga Airport 17 May 2017
Friendly, efficient counter staff. Almost new car and full to full fuel policy. Quite hard to locate car in multi story although will be easier second time!
John Malaga Airport 13 May 2017
The car was brand new - 1,500km on the clock and in perfect condition and was a free upgrade with built-in satnav. .The car park at Malaga airport was a gloomy place and made it slightly difficult to find the Thrifty facility. But that would have been the same for all the car hire companies, not just Thrifty
Anonymous Malaga Airport 13 May 2017
I was given an upgrade from a Vauxhall Insignia to a Audi A4 at no extra cost. Finding the Thrifty desk in the first place.

No queue at check in desk. No pressure to take extras. Expected a Seat Ibiza but were given a well used Leon estate. This was a bit larger than I would have liked. Condition was ok (nasty stain on one of the rear seats. Drove ok though and did the job.

The car was clean and drove well which is a bid improvement from my last car by RECORDGO Service in picking up the car could have been quicker.
Andrew Malaga Airport 22 March 2017
Staff were friendly and helpful. Made me aware of extras but were not at all pushy or overbearing with a hard sell. Nothing springs to mind. All good.
