Thrifty reaches 1 millionth rental

01 October 2015

With our new Thrifty Rental system in rolled out across Australia from earlier this year we've reached a milestone with our 1 millionth rental in the new reservation system.

To mark it we'd like to congratulate Matti Pyyvaara on being that lucky customer!

Thrifty started rolling out the new reservation system in 2013 and we have been watching the rental numbers grow ever since. 

We wanted to surprise the lucky customer to celebrate our great milestone and Matti was definitely surprised at his pick-up location Sydney Airport, domestic terminal. Our CEO Tom Mooney and our Thrifty staff were there to greet him and give him the good news. He was presented with a free weekend rental and upgrade, a $200 Thrifty rental voucher and a pack full of Thrifty merchandise. 

Needless to say Matti was overwhelmed not least because this was his first car rental… EVER! Hiring for pleasure, Matti said that he was 'visiting his girlfriend for a trip to the Blue Mountains for hiking'. 
Matti enjoyed his experience with Thrifty and our easy to use online booking, and will use Thrifty Car Rental again. He is planning on heading to Melbourne next to explore Australia's capital of cool in a Thrifty Car. 

We wish Matti all the very best and congratulate him again. Now the countdown is on, who will be Thrifty's  2 millionth renter? 

Whether you're travelling for business, visiting family, escaping the big city or taking a road trip, think Thrifty.
