Totally misleading, quoted $125 for the car then pushed us to take a bigger car and wouldn’t accept the insurance we already had. Total got to almost $1,000 after they added their insurance. Cancelled and went with Budget. Got a very nice car with insurance for $600. Stay far away!Reviewed 25 Mar 2024

The full insurance was expensive, but they still charged me for dammage to the side of one tire.Reviewed 4 Nov 2023
review fromkayak
The wait time at Dublin Airport is ridiculous. The staff push you to upgrade services, like adding unnecessary additional insurance, and to pay more for a car with an automatic. They also said they had photographed the damage on the car, but had not photographed all damage, I insisted they photograph the car completely.Reviewed 2 Oct 2023

Mid size cars (Skoda Fabia not Astra)Pros:I rent an Astra with ar conditioning. Thrifity gave me a Skoda Fabia without AC. At the desk rental the attendant has confirmed that the car size for this rental is Fabia and there was no AC. The car got a flat tyre during the trip.Cons:Car type is not Astra as advertised, is a Skoda Fabia, very short on accessories.Reviewed 25 Mar 2017

Pros:The drop off was very efficientCons:It took quite a few minutes at pick up; not sure if they weren't expecting as many customers at that time or just didn't have enough staff. Took about 30 mins to get our car.Reviewed 28 Sept 2016
