9.6 Excellent6 Feb 2017

A challenge with the vanCons: The chair in the back did not go down and the girl though she tried could not get it to go down and we needed it as we were transporting a dresser. They had no other van for us to take and no other person that could fix it, so my husband had to take it anyway because we had no choice. So my husband ended up fixing it when he got home.

Pros: The staff was professional.Cons: If i got my refund because I never got to rent the car. That would be nice. They should somehow utilize there software to know if there are any cars for rent.

10.0 Excellent5 Sep 2018
Got a great rate for Syracuse which is ridiculously expensivePros: Ease of booking and priceCons: Syracuse airport is torn up and extremely hard to navigate - not Kayak's fault but a really bad experience for travelers there.
6.8 Good13 Aug 2018
Payless in SyracuseCons: Don't bother calling the pickup phone number because they will never answer. Just try to figure out where they've been moved to due the the construction in the airport! Also the EZ Pass did Not work!
10.0 Excellent5 Jun 2018
Great Service - helpful folksPros: For the first time ever I forgot to refill the car before returning it. I was running super late to my flight, and they were completely understanding. I expected to pay the fee for refilling, but they were extremely understanding and realized that I only used a few gallons of fuel - they charged me the pump price instead of the fee. Extremely thoughtful - will definitely rent from them again!!Cons: I don't have a bad thing to say. I was a little disappointed that I paid twice for insurance, once through a third party during the booking, and another when I arrived. I wish it was all together - but that's it.
2.0 Mediocre7 Apr 2018
Cons: Was not able to make a change to my reservation. Very poor.

Pros: Not friendly, didn’t have my car, I’m gonna write a horrible Yelp reviewCons: Literally anything. You did nothing right
4.0 Okay28 Jan 2021
Pros: Staff members. Girl that had to downgrade me from an SUV to a full size vehicle was just doing her job.Cons: Don't use a debit card unless you only want a maximum of a full size car. I requested an SUV because I had to travel and the weather got pretty bad. I had to downgrade to the Maxima and the handling was terrible. I understand there's rules but my debit card has more cash on it than most credit cards. They could have done a larger deposit or something to secure the vehicle I requested. I needed the vehicle so I couldn't cancel or change things.

They gave me the contact info for their manager.Cons: They had no cars.

4.8 Okay28 Dec 2019
Cons: Agent at the counter was excellent. However, I found it extremely difficult and time consuming to communicate over the phone. I must have been on for over a half hour. In my opinion it is terrible customer service when you go into the world of press 1 for this and press whatever for that. I tried to hit 0 to get an operator and it was impossible. Also, was transferred twice and couldn’t seem to find the right department. It would be much easier if you could talk to a human from the start.

8.8 Excellent11 Oct 2020

2.0 Mediocre29 Sep 2020
Pros: absolutely nothing.Cons: I reserved a car 3 days prior to my trip. when i went to pick it up there was no rental for me. yet they still charged my credit card. instead of being helpful, i’m given a pamphlet and cal a number in there!!! i call that number and they’re just as useless and unhelpful! Now having to go through them again for a refund has been unbearable. i will never use Hertz again and will actively recommend to my friend never to use them!
2.0 Mediocre21 Sep 2020
Cons: A reservation is not a guarantee of a car. The morning I was there they overbooked by over 50 people.
6.0 Good7 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was professional and friendly. No complaints about the service provided.Cons: I was hit with an additional charge for bringing the car back 45 mins late. My issue is that when I came to pick up the car, it took about 30 mins to get the car AND the outside was noticeably dirty. So I was upset with the nickel and dime feeing I got from this location.
2.0 Mediocre29 Jun 2020
Cons: We showed up and were told by manager no cars were available because one was broken and the other had body damage, even though we had a pickup scheduled at noon. Have never experienced something like this before
3.6 Mediocre22 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff were friendly but ultimately unhelpfulCons: Requested vehicle was not available. Upgraded to an SUV which meant exorbitant gas consumption and ridiculously increased cost. No offer to obtain another car from a nearby sister store.
2.0 Mediocre5 Aug 2019
Pros: It was literally the worst rental car experience I ever hadCons: They didn’t have cars - literally everything could have been better
4.4 Okay24 Jul 2019
Pros: Not muchCons: Waited an hour for the car. Other cars were available but I was not offered a no charge upgrade. Was told I could pay an additional $20/day for a car if I did not want to wait, after I had already waited 30 minutes. Worst rental car experience in the 35 years that I have been traveling on business.
2.0 Mediocre12 Jul 2019
Pros: nothing.Cons: We had reserved the car for an 8am pickup. We were late. We arrived at the storefront a few minutes after 9am. This was for a pre-paid pick up of a minivan. Since we were late (a bit more than an hour) they gave the vehicle for which we had prepaid to someone else, and did not have another for us.

Rental did not existCons: I got to the counter and was told that Thrifty had not had a presence at the Syracuse airport for several months. I had a panic attack, then booked another car with a different search tool. I won't use Hotwire or Kayak again
2.0 Mediocre21 Feb 2018
Thrifty Car Rental at Syracuse Airport CLOSEDCons: Made reservations on 1/21/18 for rental dates of 2/16 to 2/20. When we arrived at the airport on the morning of 2/16, we were informed by other car rental agencies that Thrifty had closed up permanently about a week prior, not only at the airport location but at all locations that the one franchisee/owner operated. We were not informed by any means, which left us scrapping for another car. We were able to obtain one through Budget/Avis, but unfortunately we were unable to get the size car we wanted. Any car is better than no car, but had the Thrifty franchisee/location owner informed us at the time they closed, we would have been able to search out a car from another agency. Poor management and ownership representation. Would like to give ZERO stars.
6.4 Good16 Dec 2017
Pros: staff and check in were smooth.Cons: It was a snowy day and the vehicle had inadequate tires for the conditions.
3.6 Mediocre27 Nov 2017
Should have driven my own car and risked breaking downPros: BluetoothCons: I paid almost $400 for 3.5 days. If the car was at least midsize it would have been almost worth it, but it was a tiny compact Ford Fiesta and I felt carsick the entire time driving it! Mind you this was almost $400 without ANY coverage. $25 extra per day because I’m under 25 years old. I will never rent from thrifty again.

4.8 Okay18 Oct 2017
Cons: When I got there the price that you quoted for both days was only valid for day 1. Ad then when I extended by a day,it was raised again. Most other car rentals I have used get the chargecorrect up-front.
3.6 Mediocre17 Oct 2017
Bait and switchCons: Rate advertised when booked was special, "compact" - to be a vehicle "compact or larger" to be determined upon arrival. Upon check-in attendent said that rate was for whichever vehicle they have the most of, which in this case was 12-passenger vans. Driving a 12 passenger van was a rediculous option for my purpose, so I asked for a compact vehicle. She said they had none. The only other viable vehicle available was a luxury, which they said they would discount. Cost ended up being $310 instead of booked rate of $120. I'm very unhappy and diasappointed. Also after getting vehicle I smelled, and noticed marijuana crumbs on center console storage area.

There was a weed spray in the door, called Blunteffects, left behind by the previous renter.
2.8 Mediocre8 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff said they would drop me off...I was told to be there after 2:30. I was also told they were at the Watertown airport which is not the case and the Sheriff at the airport said they get numerous customers coming there for enterprise. When I got to the right place it was 3:30 because I was at the airport for 20 minutes, on hold with local office waiting for a employee to answer for 20 minutes. When I called again a girl picked up and said I was misinformed by one of the employees and the radius of drop off is 15 miles and no one could take me to Clayton.Cons: Staff needs to know the policies. Website needs to state the radius. Staff needs to answer the phone...I have yet to get through to the Syracuse staff to dispute the bill.

Hoping for a better experience next timePros: The price was much more affordable than Hertz's car rental for a driver under 21 years of age, although a little excessive.Cons: The car was parked very close to a car on the left, which made it very difficult for me to get into the car initially. The car was not clean when I first entered it. The steering wheel was oily and there were crumbs from food on the floor and under the emergency brake. The windshield wipers had some sort of sticky residue under the rubber, not allowing me to properly wipe my windshields. Visibility was low during my road trip, making driving somewhat dangerous.

Top tips for hiring a car in Syracuse

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of Syracuse rent a car, as the city is much more easily navigated in a private car than via public transportation, especially because public transportation options are fairly limited and the city was designed primarily with private vehicles in mind. For instance, if you would like to go from downtown Syracuse to the Lakefront then it is 3 miles away, or a mere 7-minute, but if you were to take public transport it would take upwards of 30 minutes.
  • Is picking up the hire car step one of your trip to Syracuse? If so and you are landing at Syracuse Hancock International Airport, you will find the hire car counters in the main terminal of the airport.
  • In the area surrounding Syracuse University, jaywalking by pedestrians is particularly common and should be looked out for. This is partly because of the high density of pedestrians and also because of the many tiny streets in the area. It is not too big of an issue, but just make sure to keep your eyes open for any people suddenly walking across the street.
  • Rush hour in Syracuse, while not as bad as neighboring New York City, is worth avoiding at its peak hours. The morning rush hour usually lasts from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour goes from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. As far as congestion goes, I-81 is one of the worst affected during rush hour and, unless your commute requires it, it should be avoided.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Syracuse for £30 or less
