Advice given regarding diesel versus petrol The price was quite high.
Michael Porto Airport 09 September 2017
Hire companies should prioritise returns at the service desk as they have to get a flight. The car was from a hertz there was chaos at returns with cars backed up out onto the main road some customers abondoned their cars and dropped in the keys which meant the que was not moving. Focus on returns as priority.
Thomas Porto Airport 08 September 2017

Very welcoming and Super helpful person at the desk for pick-up despite the late time in the day (23.00+) Great service insurance costs too expensive
Anonymous Porto Airport 20 March 2016
Car quality, and overall performance build up of additional expenses and return fee to a location in the same country which was unusual before
Anonymous Porto Airport 08 March 2016
Car was good-found that the Thrifty car hire at Porto airport was done by Hertz- have never used Hertz before but the man at the counter was extremely helpful-i had omitted to bring paperwork. noticed after dring about 10K that petrol gauge showed 3/4 full so I am pretty sure i did not get a full tank! Also had trouble finding Hertz when taking car back-a map would have helped as my satnav kept taking me to arrivals.Overall though I was fairly happy

Bus came very quickly when i used the 'phone to tell them I was there. Excellent customer service once I got to the desk. Pristine car. Fuss-free drop-off once the queue went down. I arrived late - while other companies had shuttle buses waiting, Thrifty didn't. T%his was quickly resolved.

Fine car, nice, competent, staff Not clear that you should go to the Hertz rental office to pick up your "Thrifty" car. Not mentioned on the signs at the arrival hall, nor on the shuttle. Took a bit of scouting around.
Anonymous Porto Downtown 25 October 2014
Initial car had a faulty detection warning for the seatbelt: it kept blinking while allseat belts were buckled. Rental staff was not very friendly when we returned the car 10 minutes after picking up the car, but they had to acknowledge the problem and provided another car
