Pros: Pickup was free of hassles and relatively smooth. Pretty good value.
Cons: Rep at pickup in Latham didn't seem to know what he was doing and had to wait for help from another employee. Car had exterior marks and a cigarette burn on the front passenger seat.

Pros: Mo and the crew are great. Like really fantastic customer service. They were awesome.
Cons: The only thing, and it wasn't their fault, was that suddenly there were taxes that were not listed in the reservation. That's shitty. All of a sudden they announced higher airport taxes, even though the thrifty is off-airport. I know they are just going based on the computer, but thrifty needs to fix that. It's a super shitty feeling as a customer to budget a certain amount of money and find out you are paying more
Pros: Good. Nice that it has a shuttle seevice to airport took under 5 minutes. Nice customer service.
Cons: You can't see the sign for the rental office when coming down the main road. Need more signs!

Cons: I had asked for a small SUV, and when I checked in that's what I was told we'd have. At the very last minute (after 1:00am!), I was given keys to a Dodge Durango, not a small SUV. I didn't want to take that big a car into cities and parking garages. Luckily, the next morning I was able to exchange it for a much better, smaller, and updated Ford Escape. I also did not receive a clear explanation of a waiver of the toll transponder (I must have thought i was waiving the additional insurance coverage). Therefore I've been charged a hefty "administrative' fee for going through a $1.00 toll - I'm pretty sure if I'd had the rules and consequences described to me, I'd have taken the option to pay for the transponder. It seems like a tricky way for the company to make extra money. (This took place in Albany, not Latham.)

Cons: Pick up in Albany was poor.

Car had a defective tyre
Pros: Roadside assistance staff very proactive and proposed various options to resolve problem.
Cons: Rental car was not safe to drive with a defective tyre. Complicated procedure for getting a replacement and due date extension places the burden of cost on customer.
