7.6
Maureen Barcelona Airport 22 June 2017
Staff were helpful and friendly. They did not try to ram extra insurance down your neck and explained the fuel policy fully so there would be no surprises on your credit card at the end of the rental. Also no hidden extras to catch you out. For this reason alone I will come back to Thrifty Nothing. Everything went smoothly
8.2
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 22 May 2017
Thrifty was generally very good. Signposting to find the rental desk was poor. Car return was chaos as another rental company blocked all the roadways causing traffic jams and delays.

Robert Barcelona - Sants Train Station 18 May 2017
The upgrade came with free satellite navigation Whilst I wasn't expecting a convertible at 67 yrs of age, it was cool. The original smaller car was picked for old city driving and parking, so this bigger car was mor difficult but I usually parked and walked.
7.2
SERGEY Barcelona - Sants Train Station 01 April 2017
The car is in good condition, almost new Hiring process was longer than I expected, it took more than hour to wait in queue and proceed with papers. 'Full protection' insurance added twice higher rate compare to car hire itself, which was kind of surprise.

I was promised a 5 door car and got a 3 door car. when dropping off the car, i had to give it to a stranger (another company managing the return). I wasnt comfortable doing that. Took too long to get my deposit back. Only got it back today - more than a week later.

The drop off in Valencia was very difficult to find - especially since the gps couldn't locate the address. It took us more than an hour to find the place and fianlly we had to type in the adress using our own smart phone and data.

Got me from A to B. Nice size boot. Interior of the car was stained. Seats discolored. Roof marked. Car vibrated as if no service was made for a while. The exterior of the car was well damaged, and the under carraige very dented.

Staff pleasent. The upgrade was resonable, but only after negociation. The paper work is not electronic. Very complicated process. If no one in the parking, you need to return back to the desk.

Anonymous Barcelona Airport 20 September 2016
Convenience at the airport - check in desk and car park easily accessible. Members of staff were efficient and helpful. Car was in poor condition with many areas of damage to the bodywork. Requirement to closely inspect the car and discuss with the local representative several items of damage that were not highlighted on the booking form slowed down the pick-up process.

No pressure to take out extortionate extra insurance. I will never go to Avis again for this reason. Staff were businesslike but not overfriendly. Good.
