The staff was very accommodating and very friendly, unfortunately the rental car was a bit old, no central locking, no electronic windows and hardly came from the place ...

I picked up a luxury standard car, a Mercedes C 200 or similar. Most renters gave me “similar”, and this meant even a Toyota. At Thrifty it was not the case: they gave me the Mercedes C200, almost brand new (less than 3.000km). And they didn’t tried to shove me any additional insurance or other liability. One day before rental day I asked for extending the rent for 1day and it was Ok and easy and fast to get all the details. The process of dropping in and dropping out the car was easy and relatively fast (it was high season, at the New Eve,s). I am entirely satisfied with Thrifty.

Check your prices and go back to VW especially for group B and B1. Otherwise ofcoz I will keep on hiring from u.
