Danielle Bilbao Downtown 27 August 2017
Wish automatic pricing wasn't so gapped from the manual, but was great being able to have the flexibility. I had to sign the condition of the car sheet before I actually saw the car. When I asked to see the car first the worker at the counter said trust me it's ok.

Quality of vehicle Did not get shown to vehicle and left to figure out start up and controls. No advice given on exit procedure from parking area. No petrol station on approach to drop off at airport, have to go back on exit route to top up tank for return to avoid exorbitant top up fees.
Robin Bilbao Airport 26 May 2017
A hire car is a utility purchase - a convenience where price is important; I got exactly what I wanted, at a good price and the staff were both friendly and efficient. I cannot fault you on any score. There was nothing I didn't like
Eric Bilbao Airport 14 April 2017
We received a brand new upgraded car. Were attended to straight away at Thrifty desk and the same on returning the car
