It was easy The satnav in the upgraded car (which I paid for) was terrible and unusable in urban driving. Not a disaster as my phone worked fine but one of the selling points for the upgrade was the satnav invade I had phone issues.

Helpfulness of car hire staff Not all scratches and dents picked up prior to me taking on the car

Nearly new car, very efficient pick up and drop off and friendly staff

Pointed out dents in car and they noted these on booking. Hadn’t got the dints already clearly done at check in. Wouldn’t leave that to chance.

signage not very good when we came into the arrivals hall late at night. All the desks in the hall were closed and it wasn't very clear that we had to walk outside and under the road via an underpass
susan Faro Airport 02 January 2018
we were told to drop the car off at the Hertz site on the approach to the airport, however it was shut, we then had to ring the number provided to get instructions which delayed our entrance to the airport, this was all very confusing

new airport layout and signage to car rental area is poor. Particularly didn't like being told I'd have to drop the car off site as Hertz are renovating rental area, which necessitated taking a shuttle bus to airport, and only being told after I'd signed all the contracts for the car

Friendly helpful staff, ease of collection process While I was happy to be given a smaller car, with a sunroof, the boot mechanism did not work. Also, the additional charges were not explained to me and it would have been good if someone had explained them.

Everything except the long wait for pick up. Extrem long wait to pick up.

Overall straight forward Reception was friendly and helpful The car was not ready at the time when I was picking it up. When returning the car there only seemed to be one person in attendance and he was doing paperwork which kept us waiting.
Anonymous Faro Airport 14 September 2017
Good car for the purpose, efficient drop off. Problems with taking to Spain - no breakdown cover over the border - we would have to pay if we broke down - difficult getting info before we arrived. Not enough staff on duty for pick up - 3 people in queue and it took 45 minutes. No signs in the airport where car rental desks were.

Excellent service both at pickup and drop off Nothing

Car was excellent larger than we thought we would get and in excellent condition almost a new car.

Cleanliness and type of car was great. Took nearly an hour to collect via the hertz desk and the drop off had a que but was fairly painless just frustrating.
Anonymous Faro Airport 31 August 2017
Counter was easy to locate and close. Uncomplicated pickup and return. Upgraded car was offered at a discount, but it seemed like the original car was smaller than expected and the upgraded one was the size class we originally intended to get.
Ronan Faro Airport 23 August 2017
I found that the total cost of car rental together with insurance from Rentalcars was very expensive for one day. I realise the cost per day would come down if renting for a longer time.

Freindly staff. Good english. No hard sell for exras Diffcult to find if you dont know where you are going. the airport arrivals hall needs better signage

Great service once there. Thrifty we're hard to find on site. Bad signage. FYI run by Hertz!
Philip Faro Airport 05 June 2017
Just to slow and not enough staff on the desk
Mark Faro Airport 05 June 2017
Very quick pick up and drop off process. Upgrades were offered but there was no pressure to take one. No selling insurance, I asked for it. Everything explained very clearly. Not knowing that Thrifty operate from Hertz so no point looking for Thrifty signs anywhere! No parcel shelf came with with the car.

Quality of car - almost brand new. Excellent value for money. It took too long in queue to pick up car - not enough Thrifty reps available.
LEON Faro Airport 19 March 2017
I had booked a car in December and had no problems. This time it was a lengthy wait over an hour. The agent both sides of me processes 2 to 3 people which made no sense. Have never had to wait for a car this long.Been coming here for 30 years and was disappointed with the service.

Having to return to Faro airport when the new car with 4 Km on it at pick up had a serious engine issue and went into limp home mode.

the ease of pick up inside of the front window was still a bit greasy.

The thrifty rep, on picking up the vehicle was not as helpful as the rep I saw on departure and initially tried to charge for extras that was not required

Car tyre pressures should have been checked before starting rental. They were not unsafe but one tyre was under inflated.
