Carhire3000

I've booked through carhire3000 as previous posts seemed to recommend them, but it has just been confirmed that the hire is though thrifty and have seen some terrible reviews about them! I knew carhire3000 is a broker but was hoping that is wouldn't be Thrifty - can anyone calm my nerves with some good feedback?

My knowledge of Dollar Thirfty is not so good, so sorry i will not be able to help there. What i maybe can help with is that, can you maybe think that you can cancel it with Carhire3000 and book the vehicle through a company here in Cape Town. I can recommend Avis Car Hire, the leading car hire company in South Africa and then there is a few more like: Europcar, Tempest Car Hire and also First Car Hire.

My wife and I travelled to South Africa last year and we hired a car with Thrifty through Carhire3000.We picked the car up at Cape Town airport.The process was quick and simple and we were even upgraded from a standard car to a NissanX trail at no extra cost.On our return 3 weeks later the process handing the car back was quick and simple.Overall no complaints at all.We are returning next year and will hire direct with Thrifty this time.

Hi Hank

last year ,I found the quotes direct from the car hire firms in CT were very expensive compared with a broker such as Carhire3000.

perhaps the rates are different if foreigners book via an local agent such as yourself?

we had some issues with Europcar regarding being charged over the top for petrol and some argument as to what time we dropped the car off at PE airport. However, Carhire3000 took the complaint up with Europcar on our behalf and arranged for the erroneous charges to be refunded to our credit card.

We used carhire 3000 and got thrifty and were very pleased with the service, the process was quick and easy and the rate was great with all insurance included so I wouldn't worry.

We hired using Thrifty for our honeymoon last year, I can honestly say they were amazing! Even after we had an accident (someone drive into us at speed), they paid for a taxi back to airport and had us in a replacement within 30minutes. I will always use them now!
