Mitsubishi Pajero
January 13, 2022

Pros: I have rented from Thrifty (now sixth) on several occasions. I like that they have always been fair and honest when it comes to returning cars. I have many years ago dealt with hire companies that always wanted to charge for a dent or a scratch that was there when I collected the car.

Cons: The price this time was very high versus previous years we have rented. Thrifty is not alone in this and I understand the supply issues with the car market in 202. Hopefully rental companies will drop prices again soon, this will make us more likely to travel again.
