Customer reviews and testimonials

‘Recently I had to hire two removal vans over the course of two weeks, one from another company and one from Thrifty, York Street in Geelong, Victoria. I just wanted to let you know the customer service I received from your staff at the York Street Branch in Geelong is far superior to that of your competition. Very courteous staff, professional, well trained and helpful. Just wanted to let you know, as usually it always goes unnoticed. Your team in this outlet are a credit to your company and deliver A1 customer service with a smile. Well done to all as I know it is a team effort.’ - Paul

Things to see and do with your rental car in Geelong

While you’re in Victoria, why not head to the capital and check out the thriving and vibrant city that is Melbourne? From trendy fashion stores to little cafes tucked into laneways, Melbourne is full of things to see and do. Head to the National Gallery or the Melbourne Museum for a day of culture, or take the kids to see the animals at Melbourne Zoo. With over 300 species from Australia and around the world, it’s the perfect opportunity to see everything from the cute and fuzzy to the slimy and scaly. 
A truly picturesque city, Geelong has plenty to occupy anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. The beaches are perfect for a quick dip in the ocean, and nature-lovers can enjoy a stroll through the gorgeous Botanic Gardens at Eastern Park. There’s the Adventure Park if you’re looking for somewhere to spend quality time with the kids, or you can take a trip back in time with the heritage Carousel. Sitting right on the waterfront, the refurbished old ride is a lovely activity for anyone young – or young at heart. 
With the Great Ocean Road just an hour to the south, you can also hop in your Geelong rental car and enjoy one of the world’s most beautiful coastal drives. Admire the breathtaking scenery, get up close and personal with wildlife, and stop for surf breaks in little seaside villages on this unique Australian adventure. You can take as long as you like – with plenty of galleries, museums and natural attractions along the way, there’s no reason to rush.
