Friendly staff - no hard sell of additional services Good clean car
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 09 August 2018
The return staff was excellent. I didn't have time to fill up and arrived at the exact return time. He allowed me to fill up and bring back the car in 15 minutes and didn't charge me for an exact day. I think this is excellent service.
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 03 August 2018
Relatively easy to find. Relatively quick to pick up only depends on number of people in the cue. Nice car, clean. Easy to drop off.
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 31 July 2018

The service on collection and drop off was excellent. The staff were very professional and friendly. I have to admit I hated the car, but that was the fault of General Motors, not Thrifty.
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 20 July 2018
Awesome and lovely staff I have to say! And I will keep on continue to choose thrifty. I love this car rental company so damn much!!!! None.

Helpfulness of the staff Cleanliness of the car We did not get the exact car we asked for No formal confirmation, at the time of car drop off, confirming the good return of the car

Good car Helpful staff Good location
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 26 June 2018
The pick up and return process was very smooth. With regards to the pickup, the representative didn't have an aggressive attitude trying to sell me additional insurance (after I showed him that I already had additional insurance). The return process was swift and I got a receipt saying everything was fine on the spot.

John Vancouver Airport 03 February 2018
The return process was amazing, and getting a tank of petrol included in the rate was an unexpected pleasure. Wheel balance was a bit off on the vehicle - looked like the vehicle had seen better days...

All very efficient. Nothing.

Very easy process. The staff were helpful and friendly and the vehicle was in excellent condition and clean. I haven't received my deposit refund as yet so have to follow up on this.

Would have liked the jeep we booked but otherwise good booking

Helpful staff
keith Vancouver Airport 06 October 2017
Car was fine, met our needs. Desk staff and reception staff when dropping off car were good Signage not clear when dropping off car hence took such a long time to drop off. Girls were extremely efficient just took some time to reach them. Gps is an extra this should be a standard. We used phone gps as it was so much cheaper than renting in car, could actually buy one cheaper than it would have cost us for rental with car.
Anonymous Vancouver Airport 05 October 2017
Great car, super service
Cesar Vancouver Downtown - Seymour Street 05 October 2017
Office reception was helpful. I specified a toyota corolla but was given a different brand despite booking weeks ahead. I had to come back after a few hours to get the corolla, but it wasn't washed at all. I had to wipe the reversing camera because it was dirty and blurry.
alan Vancouver Airport 03 October 2017
The rental desk staff was helpful We got a smaller car then we booked but it was due to limited availability and we was driving to a different province and conveniently it had the province licence plate on the car,
Jeff Vancouver Airport 02 October 2017
Friendliness of service at desk and pick up/ drop off. Plenty of room for four bags with rear seats flat. We ordered a Grand Cherokee. Got a Wrangler Sahara. Closest available to booking ???? It was a truck. Poor visibility. Uncomfortable ride. Difficult for us seniors to enter and exit. Disappointed with vehicle. Perhaps we booked too late.
Ian Vancouver Airport 01 October 2017
No pressure to purchase extra insurance or to upgrade. Canada never seems to be pushy with this. The cost of car hire in North America in general is more expensive than Europe, mainly because of all the different insurances, airport pick-up surcharges and taxes.
Roger Vancouver Airport 29 September 2017
Friendly very efficient staff, and no problem to them that we were early at pick up time! No extras to pay at the desk. No selling at all by the agent to pay any extra than what we had booked online. Nothing!!
