When the car was turned on the car locks and we had to get a serviceman out to unlock vehicle- should be a warning about this

The age of the car was impressive for a hire vehicle. It had all the features we needed and wanted to make our long driving journey easy, comfortable and relaxed. The drop-off point at Christchurch airport was extremely easy and the staff at the concession added to that ease.
We were given ski racks in error and I was asked to return the vehicle but unfortunately we had already travelled a reasonable distance away. To their credit, the office accepted their mistake and dealt with it.

Friendly staff
Instructions to find the car was poor. We walked around the whole car park as we were pointed in the wrong direction

JonathanNovember 2, 2017
Car condition was excellent
JenniferOctober 26, 2017
The car was suitable to our needs. We were transporting family for a weekend function. It was very easy to drive and economical. As we were all adults it was important to have space for everyone.
Not enough boot space. It was difficult to get in and out of the rear seats. Would have liked a 3rd free driver, rather than just 2.
October 18, 2017
Very convenient to pick up and drop off the rental car
The car I booked is Toyota Highlander, the reason I pick this one is because we need more space. The car we got is Santafy, not that much spaces.

No chains included and none at the depot.
AndrewJuly 27, 2017
We ordered the car with snow chains, however, these were not on the order through to Thrifty, so were unavailable. Which was disappointing considering we were in Queenstown and the high chance they would be required driving to the ski fields.
