Anonymous Barcelona - Sants Train Station 11 June 2018
It was very was to pick up the car and we got an upgrade so that was great! The car was clean and brand new so we had no issues throughout the trip.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 27 May 2018
Upgrade my car The car was nearly brand new with 1000miles Time to pick up the car too long!!!
Anonymous Barcelona - Sants Train Station 05 May 2018
The staff were very helpful The first car we were given had no battery in it. We therefore had to go through the whole procedure again to be issued with another car. The staff were very apologetic about the situation but we lost a lot of time.

Anonymous Barcelona - Sants Train Station 02 May 2018
Very clean car and easy process of booking and dropping off. Very long wait upon pickup (nearly 1 hour standing in line at the pick up desk).
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 25 April 2018
Good reception staff even late at night after a long day. Upgrade to better car for very small charge. Only small point, distance to collect car after checking in terminal with lots of cases
Anonymous Barcelona - Sants Train Station 28 January 2018
Excellent price, excellent location, excellent car.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 14 November 2017
Drop off desk was in confusing location compared to the parking lot.
Cristina Barcelona Airport 15 October 2017
The staff. They were very friendly and helpful. The car park. It was really complicated to get out of it plus very narrow.
Malcolm Barcelona Airport 23 September 2017
The car was well specified - sunroof, climate control Drop off took a bit too long
Josep Barcelona Airport 18 September 2017
Very kind and efficient que desk personnel.
Anonymous Barcelona - Sants Train Station 06 September 2017
The service was slow at the pick up point a lot better at the airport Just waiting to pickup the car over 1 hour
Ian Barcelona Airport 06 September 2017
Very helpful staff no wait which is ablessing and easy exit from termonal. Nothing at all.
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
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.
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.
Till Barcelona - Sants Train Station 22 March 2017
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.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 28 February 2017
The upgrade Length it took to do the paper work.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 20 February 2017
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.
Graham Barcelona Airport 22 November 2016
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.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 05 October 2016
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 04 October 2016
Fast checkin, Check-out ok Some noise in the car, coming from the left rear wheel.
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.
Richard Barcelona Airport 11 September 2016
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.
Stephen Barcelona Airport 18 July 2016
Friendly staff and reasonable time taken for admin. Almost new car I wanted a car with sat nav and was told that it was had been disabled in our car so I paid for a separate Tom Tom. However, it turned out the car system was working so I am out of pocket. I will take this up with Thrifty.

Easy to find and pick up/drop off Lady on desk at arrival was so rude and unhelpful. Didn't even tell us what she was charging us, didn't direct us to location of car, challenged me every time as questioned something and added a good 30 mins into our already late arrival. Other staff were lovely. Also charged us wrongly which I had corrected on our return.
CICERO Barcelona Airport 29 March 2016
Very nice , liked everything about the Car
Sara Barcelona Airport 09 November 2015
Ease of pick up and drop off locations Attempt by salesman to sell me more insurance
Richard Barcelona Airport 14 September 2015
Fabio suggested our luggage wouldn't fit in the boot but it did
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 11 August 2015
Good experience,thank you
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 20 July 2015
Ease of pick up and drop off There was a mistake with the first car in that the documentation said it was a diesel, and this was confirmed by the counter staff at the time. However, the car was a petrol car and I did put some diesel in. I returned the car and they apologised for the mistake and gave me a similar car as a replacement.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 08 July 2015
Car was really good
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 20 June 2015
The fact that counter staff did not try to sell any extras, ie extra insurance or upgrade model. Expecting a 3 door fiesta and got a 5 door Ibiza at no extra cost, which is the same as our car at home.No queues at counter in terminal, easy drop off. Found the cost quite expensive in comparison to previous car hire abroad.
Elizabeth Barcelona Airport 16 June 2015
Very good car in very good condition Representative at counter tried to sell me full insurance cover when I had already purchased it from yourselves. He tried telling me that your cover would be invalid if I had an accident!
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 23 May 2015
We received a car nothing like a seat Leon or similar.
JOHN Barcelona Airport 16 April 2015

Steve Barcelona Airport 14 September 2014
fantastic service all round
CHRIS Barcelona Airport 21 August 2014
We liked that the car was small enough to fit into those tiny village streets but big enough to accommodate my 2meter height with long legs. It was diesel and good on fuel. The car never failed us at any time and we travelled over 7,000 km around. No complaints about the car
MARK Barcelona Airport 12 August 2014
Despite arriving late at night there were no problems with the pick up. The representative was excellent, giving us a choice of cars and sensible advice. There was no hard sell of additional insurance etc. The rep at drop of was equally efficient and good. None, this was by far the best car hire experience for many years.
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 03 August 2014
all fine
Anonymous Barcelona Airport 01 August 2014
Very good location in arrivals hall. Very easy to find. Prompt service, no queue. Return was fast also. Not sure when vehicle was serviced or mechanically checked. Oil warning light came on after only 60km.
Stephen Barcelona Airport 13 July 2014
Great car, upgraded to 7 seats, lots of space, built in sat nav- very useful! Great! All good!

Car was almost new and size was exactly right for our needs. No problems whatsoever.
