November 21, 2017
Smooth booking and excellent reliable car
a few too many scratches on the car when I picked it up
November 20, 2017
Only if the rate was less ! They were very nice staff and the car was good.
I had no complaints other than the cost. It’s the fully comp Insurance that kills the deal every time

RogerOctober 10, 2017
Our flight was delayed by 5hours so we didn't get to Malaga until 01.30am. The Hertz/Thrifty desk had stayed open just for us! We were so plesed. Thank you Hertz! Thoght Adam was a great small car really practical and easy to drive.

Nice car
September 27, 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.

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
September 16, 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.

Shorter wait to pick up car would be good. Always seems to be so much typing
August 16, 2017
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)
RedouaneJuly 23, 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.
July 10, 2017
The person that served me was not very friendly or helpful. The two people on either side were very friendly and helpful.
July 9, 2017
The car. Fiat 500 Cabrio Automatic. Car did not drive very well
July 5, 2017
I got Renault Captur instead of meriva, which is bigger and more comfortable
June 30, 2017
Dealing with Thrifty/Hertz was efficient and their cars were great.
RogerJune 27, 2017
Short queue at pick up desk Low mileage nearly new Peugeot 108 Fast drop off near departure terminal
June 26, 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.
StephenJune 19, 2017
Counter staff girl at pick-up - I think she was called Clara - was friendly, polite and very efficient
Car was not 100% clean inside or out
June 17, 2017
waiting time is not long and staff is helpful
As a gold member they dont offer an upgrade
TIMOTHYJune 16, 2017

rafaelJune 6, 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.
RONALDMay 17, 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!
JohnMay 13, 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
May 13, 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.
April 25, 2017

RogerApril 12, 2017
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.
April 10, 2017
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.
AndrewMarch 22, 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.
March 14, 2017

Very prompt response to flat battery by repair man. Extremely impressed.
Surprised to find car rental was before the exit into arrivals. Therefore went through and spent 45 minutes trying to find the desk/get back in due to unhelpful security staff.
DavidJuly 28, 2016
