Cons:I purchased insurance through kayak for 9USD but when I picked the car up they didn't recognise that insurance and said I wouldn't be covered unless I bought their 30 euro package, which I did to cover myself. Audi, they said after hours drop off for the car was acceptable, all you had to do was put the key in the box. However when I tried to drop off the car, the gate to the car yard was closed and they didn't give me any swipe card to access the gate. This caused a lot of stress, and none of the Lyon offices would answer their phone. We ended up leaving the car parked on the street and then depositing the key in the box. They should have explained how to drop off the car after hours.Reviewed 22 Sep. 2017

Nice StaffPros:This facility at 102 Ave Jean Juares is easy to find and easy to get to. I rented a manual transmission Fiat 500, the car was in excellent shape and the staff member that helped me was very helpful. There's a gas/petrol station about 500m away at 116 Rue de Gerland so that you can fill up before returning the car.Cons:The cost of gas/petrol in France, but I can't blame Thrifty for that. It's just something you learn to live with. Whatever you do, don't ever use the Hertz/Thrifty facility at the Gare Part-Dieu as it's impossible to find.Reviewed 24 Sep. 2017

Cons:I was not pleased with status of snow tires. We asked for chains but were told none existed for cars our size. Of course, we got stuck one night going up the mountain. A tow truck came after a call to the Thrifty emergency numberand we bought snow chains from him. He told us we would not be charged for the tow since we bought the snow chains, but of course if showed up on the bill at drop off and no one there was compotent enough to be able to deal with it.Reviewed 25 Mar. 2018
