Paying upfront saved me surcharges on my credit card. Also, inclusion of rentalcover was a good option to save on insurance as rental agency charges a bomb for full insurance cover!

Simplicity of the process. Efficient staff discount The car we got was a bit smaller than what we had asked for, although in the same group. We had to go and find the car out in the parking areas ourselves; this was actually around the block.

Friendly, helpful staff. Gave us directions to our destination. Difficulty in finding terminal 2/3 from the highway. The directions at terminal 1 were confusing. This is not a complaint about Thrifty but the airport authorities. The lady at terminal 1 was extremely helpful in redirecting us to terminal 4.
