The lady who served us was very helpful and went out if her way to help us. The office was very easy to find. Dropping off the car was very fast and efficient Massive queue when we picked the car up. Also initially wanted us to take a Traffic which was more like a mini bus where we had booked a ford galaxy. We were not happy to drive something that big. They did find us a car similar to what we had booked but the whole thing took about 2 hours. Much too long to pick up a car

Quick car drop off time No staffs at the Thrifty desk when we arrived. And there was no sign to tell us that Thrify and Hertz can use the same desk. So we waited for more than 20 minutes at the empty desk. Only after that a Hertz lady came and told us they use the same desk and the same queue.

The car was very nice - we got a Renault Scenic Grand Espace which is a lot nicer than the Zafira we had requested. The staff were nice - if very busy and overworked. The office was understaffed when we arrived and we had to wait too long to pick up the car.

Speed of. Drop off returning the car. Ability to use app for voucher and information about the booking When picking up the car we arrived one hour early at 4pm and the Hertz representative would not start the booking procedure until exactly 5pm even when we went away for 45 mins and returned 15 minutes early. Luckily when we returned for the 2nd time the first representative had left and Her replacement wast very pleasant and efficient.
