Due to over booking, we didn’t get the vehicle or anything close to what we booked. Got a extremely small SUV. Extremely uncomfortable and not so enjoyable ride.

The only thing which could be improved was the car smelled of someone smoking in it. As a nonsmoker, I don't appreciate the smell. In addition, the car manual was missing.

pick up was weird and drop off was a little slow... otherwise ok... I don't like the add on pricing... (this is the nature of capitalism, but it stinks to have a rate, and say... oh...there's other fees for things you might have expected to be standard...) like a roadside service... not only will I never pay extra...i will bill you for lost time...bc I bought a car hoping to do it's job to get me around until I return it... if I wanted a junky car... i could've used my old, junky car!

Staff at pick up were nice. Vehicle wasn’t ready for us when we arrived and had to wait in 95 degree weather with 2 kids for approximately 1/2 hour. When we got the vehicle it smelt like smoke inside and when we asked another employee said oh it’s just marijuana trying to be funny. Car was nice but smell and cleanliness was very poor! We did like that we could drop off the vehicle at any enterprise. Didn’t have to be where w rented itVehicle could have been ready when we got there and the customer service could be better

Staff was friendly, price was great and car was comfortableThe pick up and drop off locations were not open due to coronavirus. Both confirmation emails gave address of closed locations. Car could of been cleaned better, heavy dust/ dirt on dashboard, rocks and dirt on carpets, car windshield was "cleaned" in the parking lot by using the windshield wipers during the pick up inspection. Not by best experience with enterprise.

Easy pick up and drop off. The guy that helped us was great.We tried using the gps in the van but it wouldn’t work. When we tried to enter a destination the whole system would reset.

The gas mileage was goodThe comfort of the back seat was just okay for 7 passengers accommodation it was tight. The van did not have many Usb or cell phone charging options

Staff was great. When I returned the car they were super busy and instead of waiting in line, they let me drop off the keys and go to ensure I didn't miss my flight.

The rental car agency did not have a vehicle for me, even though this was a prepaid rental. I have not found a place on the Kayak app where I can request a refund, so I have asked my credit card company to file a claim to get the refund.
5.2 Okay1 Jan 2020
The car had a tire with a small leak so I had to return it. The rental place was about 40 min from my home so very inconvenient. The young man at the desk was very very nice and apologized several times. He also didn't charge anything - of course I didn't use the car hardly at all due to the low tire pressure.Would have been difficult for anyone to know the tire had a leak as the low pressure warning didn't come on until after I left the dealership. Again, the young man was excellent.

1.9 Horrible7 Oct 2021
What did like - NOTHING. After a $35 Uber ride, the Budget representative said "Sorry, I don't have any cars." Another Uber ride to Enterprise after direct call to the location. Excellent service there. You ride the wrong horses!
1.9 Horrible30 Aug 2021
Had to take an Uber to pick up the car from the airport The Uber driver warned me the hotel/pickup spot was in dangerous part of town The waiting area reeked of cigarette smoke Once we finally were helped, the staff were super nice. There was much confusion over which vehicles they had available and clean though. Once we got in and drove away, no issues
2.8 Mediocre23 Mar 2020
The price wasn’t that badUpon drop off the staff was rude. The vehicle was a Dodge journey and had a blurry backup camera, the backseat was dirty upon pick up, the Bluetooth on the stereo was spotty and kept dropping connection and refusing to reconnect with my phone.

We were given a car that had a leaking back tire. They filled it and sent us on our way. Had to return due to tire warning light turned back on the next day. This is cause of low review.

Fair Price , Good CarThe price was the best in my area. I was given a nice car and it ran perfect. Very Good MPG. I will go back for my next rental if the price is still the best. Pick up/Drop off was quick.Tire light never went out even when I filled tires to recommended PSI. Seats were stained and the vehicle had a slight smokers smell. The smell didn't bother me but it might to other people. It's a rental car, what do you expect??? I took the option to have the empty tank filled when I dropped it off. It only needed a couple gallons but I was charged $30 for it to be filled. I thought they charged you for the amount they put in....Nope. Oh well, lesson learned!

Car was nice, staff was friendly.It said online that I could rent a gps, but when I got to the location, I was told that they didn't have any. I wish that was posted on the website.

izabella at the office at 51st ave and cactus-although the car wasnt avail till monday, she was prompt, gave good customer service and helped me out when i needed an extension of my rentali did not like the fact that i reserved the car 2 months ahead of time and didnt have a car when i arrived-had to wait 5 days for the car-not acceptable-shouldnt matter that it was spring training and nascar, i have never had this problem before and i have done this for years. what was really disheartening was the fact that i couldnt have my car at my offsite office, but for a mere $700 more i could have one at the airport-pretty crappy customer service-actually as many times as i was transfered on the phone, while trying to get help, i would say there was no customer service to speak of

I will never rent through Thrifty again.Nothing . I ended up NOT taking the car or renting from Thrifty at all.The customer service wasn't friendly. The car was dirty and smelled bad. The overall outside condition looked worn. The car looked like one you would get from a third-rate used car dealer.

Nice persons, but car was a wreck.I really liked both salespersons who worked with me. Personable and helped me with questions.The car. Ford Fiesta seats beat my kidneys to a pulp within first 20 minutes of driving:( Also, car was so loud that I could not make necessary phone calls while driving--even with speakerphone and headphones. Lame!!

DisorganizedIzabele, the woman working the front desk, was wonderful. I would give her five stars, because she honestly did the best she could. She had called her manager the night before to get the 2 SUVs she needed (one for me, one for another customer). She called him again as soon as I arrived, to find out where they were. She kept on him, and gave me the updates he gave her (just a few minutes more, not long now, soon, etc). It is ABSOLUTELY NOT HER FAULT that her manager did not have the cars to her location when she needed them, or that he did not give her accurate information. She waived the fuel requirement for the rental as compensation for my four-hour wait.The manager did not have the cars at that location when I arrived for my scheduled 8 am pickup. He did not give his counter associate complete information when she called for updates, so from 8 am until nearly NOON, I was told "It should be here soon, just a few more minutes." I could tell she was just as frustrated as I was, especially when the next SUV customer arrived and was told there wasn't one available and may not be one available for quite some time. Apparently there was a tire problem with the car that they wanted to get checked out, which I appreciate, but I would have appreciated it more if he had told Izabele, so she could have let me know, rather than both of us getting annoyed with the manager for taking so long. As for drop-off, I had to do an after-hours drop-off, and there are two sets of instructions on the window with conflicting information, I followed them to the best of my ability, and I hope everything turned out right.

CostlyCar was clean. Easy pick up with no dragged out inspection.I had a reservation with Fox rental. I was running late and the line was long for the car so I walked over the Alamo which had no one in line. I was able to get a car right away and made it to my appointment. It cost $84 more to rent from Alamo as opposed to Fox. I also saw a car on line for two days I could have rented from Avis that was one upgrade for $100 Nice car from Alamo but not worth the price difference
2.0 Mediocre3 Oct 2016
Thrifty rental location not at PHXThe car rental counter was not located in the airport terminal. Only after riding the shuttle to the Thrifty counter did I learn the car I rented was inside the city, not at the airport Why would a company advertise a rental for an airport if it is not at the terminal? Completely botched up my plans and caused me to be late for a scheduled engagement a couple of hundred miles away.

Car hire excess insurance in Glendale

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Glendale car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Glendale.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Glendale car rental.
