When arriving into terminal 1 at Manchester Airport, the procedure of collecting your hire car will fall in to one of two categories.
On site collections: are with suppliers that have a desk in the terminal which will soon be moving to the car rental village at Manchester Airport. You will approach the relevant supplier, complete the paper work and then make your way outside to your vehicle, which will generally be parked in car rental parking / long stay car parking area.
Off site collections/Meet & Greet: some local suppliers who do not have a desk in the terminal or in the car rental village will offer a meet and greet car hire service. Meaning when you arrive, you call them on a pre determined telephone number and they will advise you of a meeting point within the terminal where you will be greeted by an employee or some companies will ask you to jump on the car park/hotel hopper bus to the meeting point.

More information on our no deposit car rental offer can be found here.
Hiring a car without a credit card has never been easier, here at Indigo Car Hire we have deals organised that means we can take debit card as long as they meet the restrictions that we have in place.

Used a car for two weeks in the summer of 2013. Had a really great experience with this company and the car was excellent. We were treated politely and efficently.
Would definately recommend this company to friends and family.
Thank you for helping us to arrange last minute car hire for family visiting from Canada.A better deal than we had been able to find dealing with hire companies .Very reassuring to speak to a person rather than filling in boxes online .Will definitely be our fist port of call next time we want to arrange car hire.
Picked up at the airport, vehicle requested not available given a super up grade. Quickly handed over the vehicle with no problems.
We have used Indigo Car Hire on several occasions and each time it has been a pleasure to deal with Cherie Walker she is very professional and competitive and always gives excellent service the cars have always been as promised and the collection and drop off have always been hassle free we wouldn\'t go anywhere else it is without doubt a 5 star service
We collected our car from Thrifty at Manchester Airport on 28th Feb after telephoning them upon retrieving our luggage and the pick up was very quick.
The staff there were very friendly and efficient and although we had ordered a Mondeo we had a Passat Estate (diesel as requested) which was a nice surprise!
Again, on returning the car it was so easy and indeed we were dropped off at the terminal doors in the same car!
We would thoroughly recommend Thrifty and yourselves to anyone booking car hire, and even though we have already booked with Europacar , via yourselves, for May, would indeed like to use Thrifty again.
So all in all We would give you and Thrifty 5 out of 5.
