Nice car, Peugeot 208, easy to pick up
The fact that the drop-off office is seldom manned. If there was a problem, I would rather resolve any issues on the spot. Walking away just leaving the key isn't really satisfactory.

Counter staff - excellent help. Car was not clean or full of diesel
Ordered car with GPS but not available Had to pay for upgrade

Slightly disappointed that I had to take a smaller car. No offer of a refund.

Very quick service. Very efficient staff. Good value for money
The car was a little dirty inside which was disappointing given that we were warned of a €60 fine if it wasn't kept clean.

Once we had found out who to talk to in regards to who we had rented from, it was incredibly easy to get the car. The Hertz man was friendly and efficient. He patiently explained everything to me and even helped me find the right road to go where I needed.
We were told that we would be collected from the airport and taken to the car. We weren't - we walked to the car rental place and spoke to someone who told us we needed to talk to Hertz. We would otherwise have no idea that was who we were renting from.

The Hertz representative was extremely courteous and efficient. She spoke excellent English, and was a pleasure to deal with.
I drove many miles trying to find a petrol station to refuel the car before dropping it off. I could not find one, so had to leave it with less than a full tank. It would be helpful if customers could be given a map, when they pick up the car, of places near the airport that it can be refuelled.

Clean car, new model great on petrol.
Didn't have any car mats, and the engine light came on so prevented us from sightseeing, as wasn't sure what was wrong with it!!

Car ready to pick up problem

Easy to use
There was an extra charge that I wasn't expecting and still don't understand what it was for. The invoice is not clear either. I think extra payments should be explained more clearly in English.

Friendliness of counter staff
Car had not been cleaned thoroughly and contained quite a bit sand from prior hire but only visible when rear seats were dropped. Only of concern in case we were charged for extra cleaning. Vehicle body was quite scratched and a bit tired looking and wheels had what appeared to be large patches of paint or dried grease/oil. Otherwise car was fine. Not obvious that Thrifty was serviced by Hertz counter. Could do with a Thrifty sign.

I was given a brand new car at an excellent price, there was a bit of a wait to collect it, but it was a busy time, overall the total experience was excellent!
VictoriaMarch 19, 2014
All the above
Confused as to why Hertz was called Thrifty and no mention of Thrifty in the building!
