"I got a Polo and if I will get it again I will remain happy as I am right now, once again thanks for giving me a polo but the problem is always my deposit it takes long to come back" MANDILAKHE

(Reviewed on August 26, 2014 )


"I have no complaints about anything really - the service of staff and reliability of the car were both fine. However, in April I also hired a car with Thrifty in South Africa and I can't remember what make it was - I think it was a small Ford and I MUCH preferred it to the Chevrolet Spark. In hiring a car again I would request not to have this brand of car - however, this is really only a minor criticism in the overall positive experience." GILLIAN

"Very good outstanding service" PETER

(Reviewed on April 12, 2014 )


"thanks a lot it was like a dream because i heard it is difficult to get a polo but fortunately i got it. Petrol consumption is so low. It is actually the best car I have ever driven in group B and B1, if you don't have a Polo Hatch on B and Polo sedan on B1 on there is always a problem when I pick up the vehicle." MASAKANE

(Reviewed on March 06, 2014 )


"Great experience with the Thrifty Cape Town Airport branch" EDWARD

(Reviewed on March 03, 2014 )


"We rented a large van for 2 weeks. It was the perfect car, no troubles and in perfect condition. We had to change our reservation and drop off at a different airport. There were no hassles and everything went smoothly. Great experience." JEFFREY

(Reviewed on February 26, 2014 )


"A Ford Figo does not seem to be in the same group as a Polo Vivo. I got a Ford Figo it's fuel consumption is too high. I will only be happy if I get a Polo Vivo even if it does not normally come with the original radio it is still the best" MANDILAKHE
