Pros: The young man at the pickup counter and the older gentleman who took the car back when I finished were both very pleasant and efficient. I was not happy about the rate change.
Cons: I was quoted a rate of $71/day on Kayak. When I got there to pick up the car, they said that was not the rate and it was $85.50./day I had the confirmation #, but not the rate printed. So, I had no choice as cars were in great demand the day I needed it. Then, there were almost $100 of surcharges, fees and other taxes. My total bill was $240, when I was expecting around $140. Did not make me a happy camper.

Thrifty rental location not at PHX
Cons: The 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.

Pros: Car was clean. Easy pick up with no dragged out inspection.
Cons: 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

Pros: Close location. Good value
12 Mar 2017
Pros: Clean, well-maintained vehicle.
Cons: Overcharged. The counter charged us $20 more than our online reservation specified. They refused to adjust the amount.
17 Mar 2017
Pros: Izabele, 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.
Cons: 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.

Easy in and easy out
Pros: I liked the fact they did. To try to upswell me into another vehicle.
26 Mar 2017
Nice persons, but car was a wreck.
Pros: I really liked both salespersons who worked with me. Personable and helped me with questions.
Cons: 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!!

I will never rent through Thrifty again.
Pros: Nothing . I ended up NOT taking the car or renting from Thrifty at all.
Cons: 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.
Pros: I was two weeks off with my schedule ( I know...) but Nick found a car for me anyhow. It was not the cleanest but who cares if you are in a bind, right? Very happy and they helped me out tremendously. Super friendly on top of it!!
25 Mar 2017
Pros: Staff was friendly, professional and prompt.
Cons: The trunk was dirty. It had like a grey ashy material. Maybe cement. I had to put a blanket over it to load my luggage.
25 Jul 2017
Pros: The person assisting at check-in seemed to understand the frustration about the lack of deposit information and accommodated with a discount on the rental charges.
Cons: Information about the fact that Hertz charges a $200 deposit upfront is not evident, maybe not even present on the Kayak site, and is buried on the Hertz Web site. And the personnel at the Hertz office where I picked up the vehicle were unable to print any information about how/when the deposit would be returned. It's not included as part of the rental paperwork. Not having known about the deposit requirement before booking the rental, led to a frustrating, time consuming check-in when picking up the vehicle.
26 Aug 2017
Pros: Love that they picked me up and brought me to the rental location
Cons: The fuel tank wasn't full but they marked it as such and they charged $$$ for dropping off at a different location from where I picked it up at and wanted over $200 more if I extended 1 extra day
15 Sep 2017
Pros: Customer service was good
Cons: When I dropped off I had to wait as there was only one person up front. My daughter and her 2 week old baby had to wait in the hot AZ sun for me to Finnish!
7 Oct 2016
Pros: I had to wait for someone to come to the desk. They did leave a sign. Probably didn't wait any longer than in line at a big place. Staff friendly and helpful.
19 Nov 2015
Pros: They were wonderful and very helpful. The car was great and never had any issues. Dropping off was fast and there was a chip in the windshield when I get it and it spread when I got to the snow, they were understanding. I will for sure rent from them again when needed!

Kayak was the real problem
Cons: Kayak offered a car that wasn't located at the airport even though I specified the airport. Hertz wouldn't honor or change the reservation so I had to start over and pay again. Hertz wouldn't event transfer the insurance purchase. I took almost an hour to start with the virtual staff, a manager, and a desk agent before getting a car. In the end, it cost me $79 to rent a car for 8 hours. I'm done with Kayak and Hertz.
6 Sep 2016
Pros: The car was clean. The folks at the counter were very friendly. I was able to receive my AAA discount at the counter as I forgot to sign up for it online.
Cons: The car was given to me with the gas tank at half full. I had a difficult time refilling the gas level back to half full to return the car.
