Boot cover missing.Car was a Kia Sportage, nice car, easy to drive. Staff all helpful and friendly. Would use them again.Rear cover was missing in the boot. Wasn't noticed on pickup and only noticed on return. I thought it had been left out because they get stollen or damaged? Cruise control would have been nice to have on the car.

Staff were very friendly and polite. Vehicle was in good condition.Although the booking had been made correctly by my company and the card payment details were provided, I had to leave my personal credit card details as security before the vehicle was released to me. I then had to return the following day with my company secretary to avoid being charged twice for the booking. A very inconvenient experience, as this involved a 50k round trip to the airport. The booking was for a SUV, but the vehicle provided turned out to be a 4wd pick-up truck with a hard cover at the back, no luxury features and no built-in GPS system, which was disappointing considering the price we paid.

$300 USD for a scratched plastic hub cap!Was charged $300 USD for a scratched plastic hub cap. Will be disputing the charge via my credit card, and will spread the word about never renting from Thrifty anywhere in the world.

We were not welcomed at the car park, in fact we were ignored on pickup and return. Taking a carrolla I expected a decent amount of power.going up hills required frequent use of first gear. On returning the car, we should have received the charges. A week later, I have not seen the final bill.
