4.4 Okay27 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly in Lyon. Car was clean.Cons: Horrendous signage and location information at Gare Perrache, Lyon, and at Paris/CDG/Roissy. In Lyon: "Dollar/Thrifty" location is opposite side of train station as all other rental car signage and information. No station employees knew where it was, partly because ONLY external signage was HERTZ, and actual office area is under construction and down an elevator nex to two broken escalators (which we went up and down two separate times with heavy bags). Searched and searched and searched for Dollar/Thrifty logo sign, since that was the operator on our reservation. Took us an extra hour to find the Hertz location after a random train station employee finally told us where. The Google maps pin for the address provided simply points to the geographic center of the train station, ie, completely useless. This led us to be an hour late to drop off at Charles du Gaulle airport terminal 2E/F, arriving at 12:05AM, five minutes after closing. HORRIBLE signage at car return/dropoff because NO indication of any after-hours dropoff. Phone number for the booth did not pick up despite calling four times during our drive from Lyon. Did not see any info on our booking page about after-hours. Ran around in a panic in almost-deserted parking lot, finally a security/cleaning worker showed us the after hours drop off box. A hand-drawn sign on CARDBOARD is all that you'd need at the dropoff location next to the Hertz/Dollar/Thrifty booth. So to sum: pickup was an hour of frustration and anger which led to us being late, leading to an hour of panic at CDG airport to drop off the car in a deserted lot. Unlikely that I'll ever book Hertz/Dollar/Thrifty abroad again due to poor communication and signage issues. Oh and the car engine knocked under any acceleration which was loud and annoying the whole trip.

From Lyon to Nantes and 10 days in betweenPros: The price was excellent for a last minute rental. Pick up was very easy. The car wasn't as clean as I would expect it to be but neither is my car so no big deal. Absolutely no problems with car for the 10 days that I had it. I was very happy overall and would go back to budget.Cons: I was very clear with the rental agent on picking up the car in Lyon and dropping it of in Nantes by the train station. I tried to drop it off on a Sunday, as planned, but the rental office was closed. I then had to go to the airport to return the car which cost me a taxi ride back to the train station. This delay caused me to miss my original train so I then had to buy a new train ticket. I was not happy needless to say.

Pros: Like the car and the serviceCons: The block deposit on the visa without informing the customer, still waiting for cash return 533$ after 12 days.

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.

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.
4.8 Okay22 Sep 2017
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.

Top tips for hiring a car in Lyon

  • If you’re planning a trip to Lyon, then make sure to rent a car to explore this wonderful French region. Sightseeing is made easy with a car because it gives you the complete freedom to explore, instead of depending on public transport. As a UNESCO Heritage Site, there is so much to see on your Lyon vacation, like the vineyards of the Rhone and Saone valleys or the mesmerizing caves of Grottes de Cerdon.
  • When you fly into Lyon–Saint-Exupéry Airport, you will find the car hire desks located within the airport at each one of the three Terminals, as well as a free shuttle that runs between the arrivals terminal and off-site car hire centers. If you arrive into Terminal 2, you will find the shuttle outside of Level 0 next to Terminal 1, or Terminal 3 outside on Level 0.
  • As a new driver in Lyon, you will be driving on the right-hand side, just like in the US. You will find many roundabouts in Lyon and will be expected to yield to traffic already in the roundabout. It’s also good to know that green directional signs point to a non-highway main route -- or "free roads" -- whereas the blue signs indicate a highway route and are often marked "peage," meaning you will have to pay for toll roads.
  • As a relatively busy city, Lyon’s roads do experience busy periods. Rush hour starts at 8:00 am and lasts until 10:00 in the morning, and starts up again at 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm. It’s also wise to avoid any tunnels at rush hour. During the summer, the A6 and A7 highway, which passes through the city center and is the main route to Paris, becomes extremely congested.
