Anonymous Nice Airport 16 August 2018
Counter assistant was very friendly and answered all my questions.Knowledge of English was very good.
Anonymous Nice Airport 12 August 2018
New car, only 1700k on the clock. Nice airport location! It was the busiest week of the year, arguably, but I had to wait 20mins to get a bus to another terminal. This is clearly a problem for all renters, nothing specific to Thrifty.
Anonymous Nice Airport 10 August 2018
Excellent service. The only rental desk still open when I arrived. Brand new car. No hassle picking up or dropping off the car. A dream. No nasty charges or surprises. I’m delighted.
Anonymous Nice Airport 19 July 2018
Very efficient drop off of the car at Nice Airport terminal 2. We arrived in terminal 1 and had to take the bus to terminal 2 to collect our car. This added 30 minutes to our collection time beyond getting to the desk.
Anonymous Nice Airport 18 July 2018
Very Nice help at the desk Got a car with some scratches, but ok
Anonymous Nice Airport 17 July 2018
The service was very good
Anonymous Nice Airport 07 July 2018
For a brand new car - there was no onboard navigation system!!

Excellent service! Efficient and polite at every stage .
Anonymous Nice Airport 10 April 2018
Size of car Came with GPS Nothing really. Slightly dubious fuel counter that never showed as full -despite two attempts

I asked about the possibility of need of snow chains as we were going up to Isola 2000, but was told it was not necessary! we ended up having to buy a set of snow chains before we came down.
Anonymous Nice Airport 09 October 2017
Car colour was embrassingly horrible. Also there was a problem with tyre pressure
Anonymous Nice Airport 08 October 2017
Drop off Pick up
Anonymous Nice Airport 06 October 2017
The fact that you don't normally get the car you drive at home it would be helpful if there was someone there to explain lights, air con, etc work.
Anonymous Nice Airport 25 September 2017
Rental car person at desk on hiring vehicle was fantastic The size of the car as a seven seater was too small to accommodate the small amount of luggage and six slim people.
Angela Nice Airport 14 September 2017
The friendlyness and helpfulness of the staff
Anonymous Nice Airport 13 September 2017
Yellow vest and warning triangle provided this year. Nothing really
Anonymous Nice Airport 13 September 2017
The Nissan Juke had a built in satellite navigation system which was extremely handy, plus it was spacious for three passengers + luggage and incredibly easy to drive The design of the car made spacial awareness much harder in parking circumstances
Richard Nice Airport 11 September 2017
Lovely helpful man at pick up desk. The car wasn't where we told it would be, so had to go looking for it.
Anonymous Nice Airport 10 September 2017
Long Way from arrivel to Pick up.
Anonymous Nice Airport 05 September 2017
Organised queuing system and seating in pick upzone Not enough staff to handle large surge Very long wait to leave car only one person dealing with 20 cars
Robert Nice Airport 30 August 2017
all OK maybe a bit more instruction on relationship between relevant automatic gear and starting engine, either on startup or when car stops in traffic jams to save fuel
David Nice Airport 28 August 2017
The issue described below was resolved very effectively by your UK contact centre. This was a very positive customer experience. When booking with the app, pick up and drop off time each defaulted to 10am, despite me specifying that my evening time flight
Angus Nice Airport 27 August 2017
Good clean car and friendly staff at the counter when picking up. Easy drop off Always takes too long to fill in paper work - a problem with all car hire - long slow queues at the start of the holiday. Other service providers use technology to improve customer experience. Car hire company's appear lazy or seem not to care about the customer experience. If you got this right I would use you exclusively.
Dominic Nice Airport Terminal 1 26 August 2017
Car smaller than the one booked. very slow on the return, the guy clearly looking for chargeable issues.
Anonymous Nice Airport 25 August 2017
Friendly staff, no Problem picking Car up although flight was delayed 3 hours. Trying to sell me extra insurance
Anonymous Nice Airport 19 August 2017

Suzi Nice Airport Terminal 2 18 August 2017

Counter staff at pick up was not very friendly
Sophia Nice Airport 14 August 2017
The car was small and compact The member of staff was kind and friendly and spoke great english Externally quick and easy to pick up and drop off Was no pressure to buy extra insurances etc (I had my own)
David Nice Airport 11 August 2017
Excellent vehicle Queue on collection was beyond belief. I simply don't understand why it takes up to 10 minutes for each customer.
Gopal Nice Airport Terminal 2 11 August 2017
I was given a Skoda
Anonymous Nice Airport 06 August 2017
Having landed in terminal one, going to terminal 2 to pick up and drop off car was not ideal.
Lars Nice Airport 06 August 2017
Hertz handled the Thrifty business at Nice Airport. I know Hertz with 100+ rentals. This works 100% smooth Hertz tried to sell another ( 3rd) "full" insurance, to cover - cover. me against any cost if the unlikely event of a damage on the car woulds occur. This - because they did 't understand the "Rentalcars" incl. Thrifty concept.
Anonymous Nice Airport 05 August 2017
All ok
Paul Nice Airport 03 August 2017
great service at the desk great car (upgraded) wait for service at the car pick up
Anonymous Nice Airport 01 August 2017
Hertz desk is excellent once you get to them Distance and journey to desk on arrival.
Anonymous Nice Airport 31 July 2017
There was no one at the car park to check the car when pickin it up. So we took pictures of the scratches
Simon Nice Airport 31 July 2017
Really helpful staff picking up and dropping off. Really straightforward and seamless transaction. Would recommend and definitely use again. Thanks. Nothing. Everything was fine.
Gabriel Nice Airport 30 July 2017
All good Long pickup
Vesa Nice Airport 23 July 2017
Returning car was Quick and easy Long queue when picking car up. It was agreed to have the car 12 o'clock , we got the car 13.30. so it took 90 minutes
Bledar Nice Airport 21 July 2017
It was annoying in France when you are in Highway and you have to pay in coins or cards the best it would have been a chip that is linked to the credit card like in Dubai when I rent and you just went through and charge you automatically.
Anonymous Nice Airport 16 July 2017
The trip from terminal 1 to terminal 2
Anonymous Nice Airport 06 July 2017
Wasn't really anything like a Golf. I got a Citroen because they didn't have one ready.
Anonymous Nice Airport 02 July 2017
Ideal vehicle for rental. Nearly New vehicle . Ease of the process at Nice airport both collecting and dropping off None really, except that the price was a lot higher for same group of vehicle that we hired previously at Nice , and at roughly the same time of year
Peter Nice Airport 04 June 2017
Used before and will use again, always very good and in the best location within Nice airport
