I was referred to the Hertz desk. Hertz provided me with an outstanding service, except that the pick up queue was a bit slow.
Long wait on arrival.

Friendly counter service and helpfulness.

Nice vehicle. Staff at counter were helpful.
There was no space to park the car on return and no staff present. I was told by an official in the car park to park it in the 'gold parking area'. There was no staff at the counter to explain where it was parked.

Not long to wait at the desk, staff available when collecting and leaving the car.
The collection process seems quite long winded not just Thrifty all of them. Shame we can refill Driver's Licence details and details on line before to speed up.

Well maintained and very well equipped car Very friendly and professional staff - one of the best experiences with car rental staff so far Short walk from the terminal (~5 mins)
A bit pricey The handover documents had missing scratches on the car body - so be sure to double check the car attentively before you sign We wanted to leave the retractable boot cover/parcel shelf with the rental centre as we had no more space left in the car, but we've been told it was not possible, although we returned the car to the same place

Acceptable overall.
On collection: 1) it took some time to establish that a suitable car was ready; 2) the "damage record" significantly understated the number of dents and scratches, delaying departure by about 20 minutes, whilst the details from my own examination of the car, were checked.

Cheap car
Childseat is way too expensive. I dont understand why it should be that expensive

Excellent, friendly and fast service through the partnering Hertz desk at Bologna airport, as the Thifty desk was closed due to my flight arriving late at night. Got upgraded to a gold standard vehicle for the prize of a standard car, loved it.

Got a fiat 500 instead of the Hyundai i10. Appreciated
It took me 40 min to be able to talk with them at the phone asking for some information because of my flight delay.

brand new Fiat 500. Very nice
June 15, 2017
Very helpful and friendly girl at counter and helpful man in car park to go over car with me. Efficient man checking car back in.
Very small parking spaces in parking lot. A long way to walk from terminal at Bologna.

No pressure at check in

The staff were very helpful.
The collection/drop off at Bologna is awful
May 27, 2016
Everything easy fast rental no queue at desk
Car wasn't fully cleaned. No windscreen spray and dirty footwells
May 10, 2016
The Thrifty rental desk was very busy so the rep sent me to the Hertz desk where there were more staff and I was served immediately.
October 12, 2015
The lady, Georgia who we dealt with on drop off was very helpful as we had to rd book due to a missed flight. She assisted us quickly and helpfully and made a stressful situation easier
The staff at rental drop off gave wrong directions for petrol station which unfortunately meant we did not have time to refill
September 9, 2015

Surprised by their level of service, on a par with more main stream companies such as Avis but far better value for money
