Cons: the car was good, but along the way, after about 500 KM, it started to register the default on the auto stop/start system.

Cons: At first our car was really bad. We had to keep records of lots of scratches and cracks in the front shield when we got the car. There was a really bad smell of petrol inside the car the whole time and the seat belt sign didn't go off and started beeping for at least 2 minutes with every engine start although all seat belts were closed.
And now they charged us another 100€ although we checked the car with one of the employees and there were no new damages at all and everything was fine. They didn't even send us any invoice or information about these extra costs and now they don't answer to our emails. (The German thrifty answered but apparently they don't have access to the South African or US system - another point which is ridiculous for such a big firm)
I am really disappointed and will never book thrifty again!

Extremely low quality budget car at only fractiona
Pros: Good location of pickup and drop off, however the car was extremely under maintained. It was missing boot and door trims, rattling parts, and old (34,000kms+). I will not be using thrifty ever again despite the slightly lower cost.

Pros: Pick up/drop off.
Cons: Quality of the vehicle.
31 Oct 2016
Cons: I did not know that they had to hold a certain amount even though they already taken the rental amount. When you use a credit card not a debit card it shouldn't happen or let the party know about it
29 Nov 2016
Cons: Car could not hold the amount of luggage suggested on the website.

Hey, it got us around
Pros: Staff are friendly and helpful, and prices are reasonable.
Cons: The pickup truck was old and somewhat anemic and we had to get a broken tail pipe support bracket re-welded while on the road.
On the plus side, the dinged-up vehicle gave us a very low profile appearance.
