Price and friendliness of staff. Relatively hassle free pick up. Could drop off car, early Saturday evening, when most local businesses in Madeira are closed for the weekend. A bit difficult to be certain of the location of the Thrifty office. Would be helpfull to mention that it was in the Hertz office. Office staff wouldn’t accept e voucher in app. Had to forward them my confirmation email.

Jacques Ponta Delgada Airport 02 January 2018
The car was in good conditions (clutch working perfectly) and clean. It was an economical car. Just as expected. The pickup was a bit slow, the staff requesting to fill data that they were supposed to have received at the time of booking. They also could not tell us exactly where was the car precisely.
susan Faro Airport 02 January 2018
we were told to drop the car off at the Hertz site on the approach to the airport, however it was shut, we then had to ring the number provided to get instructions which delayed our entrance to the airport, this was all very confusing

James Lisbon Airport 28 December 2017
Helpful staff at drop off. The overall online rental experience was good and the ability to compare cars. The media bluetooth system in the Renault Megane didn't work. The extra insurance was more expensive than the car hire itself. The Megane had some wierd features, some guidance on that would have been nice. When renting the car online the extra insurance part was unclear. I nearly pulled out of using rental cars because the price looked too high.

Location at airport. Ease of getting in and out of the airport. Time waiting at the counter. Way to long. Why can’t this be all done on line. I booked a car with thrifty but had to pick it up from hertz. This was not clearly signed. The speedometer didn’t work properly.
Anonymous Faro Airport 08 November 2017
new airport layout and signage to car rental area is poor. Particularly didn't like being told I'd have to drop the car off site as Hertz are renovating rental area, which necessitated taking a shuttle bus to airport, and only being told after I'd signed all the contracts for the car
Anonymous Lisbon Downtown 06 November 2017
The upgrade!
