Alamo staffs were very friendly and helpful. My flight arrived a little earlier. Not sure if that's the reason, but their system shows the total price more than doubled comparing to my reservation receipt. The airport Alamo staff were able to get it fixed.Because of the price difference, it took quite some time for the airport Alamo staff to get it resolved. Wish the system, especially for the reservation through 3rd parties, can be more seamless and fewer issues.

Great car, clean but mechanically unsound. Car died after one day.A car that works, roadside assistance that works as advertised, roadside assistance phone reps that do what they say they will do. Car died and had to rent a car from Hertz as Alamo couldn't figure out how to tow it or replace it. Cost me over $500.

We waited at O’Hare airport for almost two hours to pick up the car. There were plenty of cars available so no one waiting (there were a lot of us!) understood why it took so long to get us into the cars. This was absolutely unacceptable. Many of us would have gone to another car company and cancelled these cars except most of those companies were renting for longer trips (10 or more days).

Nearly everyone at the airport was delayed because of weather into Chicago. Got to the Midway rental counter via the shuttle at 8pm on a Saturday night. Nobody was at the rental counter when I arrived. There was nobody in the lot. Totally abandoned at 8pm at night on a Saturday. Called the 800 number and it was closed -- no answer or emergency option. I had to have my brother in law come pick me up and rented the next day from Avis. Terrible way to start a vacation.

Customer service was not at kiosk upon arrival. They put an "out to lunch" sign out and left everyone in line to wait for their return. When they came back, they were dismissive, argumentative, and would not even consider any service recovery or talk of vehicle upgrades. The car was difficult to find in the parking structure and the vehicle was dirty. Did not want to go back and try to get another vehicle...so just left with it.

Almost everything was fantastic. Customer service was timely and pleasant...there were only two of us in line, but there was no effort to put me off. Drop-off was easy and also quick. No receipt provided at drop-off, told I would receive via email. I filled the car with gas before turn-in...haven’t seen the receipt yet, but do hope I wasn’t charged for gas as that appears to be a problem for some.Getting the email receipt for the car rental facility is far from timely. When traveling for business in particular this receipt is critical for expense reports and a delay in the receipt costs money in disbursement lag, AND is frustrating. For this reason alone, I would generally rate lower, but the rest of the service and the car itself was really very good.

We were charged a full 3rd day (including all taxes, etc.) for returning the car 53 minutes after the 48 hour mark. Company policy, per customer service is a 29 minute grace period. Not to mention that the final price ended up being almost 2.5x the original cost, costing hundreds of dollars more. None of this was clear until having to contact customer service after a huge, unexpected credit card charge. Embarrassing to run your business this way, and embarrassing to have fallen for it. Should've paid more attention to the terrible reviews before us.

The staff were all great. ORD's new system, where the airport provides shuttles to a new building where all the on-airport rental companies are located, gets rid of the "whose shuttles are best" problem. Our Hyundai Sonata only had about 2400 miles on it, and it was in pretty much perfect condition.Nit-pick: When cleaning the cars, go a little easy on the air "freshener".

Multiple patrons and myself were denied cars despite having confirmed rentals and being in line before the rental location closed, which resulted in me having to book a hotel room for a night costing me over $100 because Thrifty refused to give us a car until the next morning even though our rental confirmed starting that evening. If they refuse to serve within 30 minutes of their closing time, then that needs to be clearly stated at time of reservation and reservations should not be allowed to be booked.

3.9 Mediocre2 Sep 2021
My decision to rent was made at the last minute. I was able to make my reservation online on my phone while I was standing in line. The price was, I thought, good, $202 for a compact car for 2 days. Unfortunately, despite there being numerous Thrifty rental sites, I was required to return the car at the same location (O'Hare airport), which was not convenient. After 20 minutes in line, the rental process was relatively quick. I was told that my car would be ready in 30 minutes. After 45 minutes, my car was not ready. I got back in line to talk with one of the agents. While in line, a rather upset woman skipped the queue and went right up to the counter. It wasn't hard to overhear her part of the conversation: She had been waiting an hour and 20 minutes and still no car. She walked away, obviously not satisfied. After another 20 minutes in line, I spoke with an agent who said my request for a car hadn't yet been entered and that it would be another 30 minutes before my car was ready. I spoke to another agent, who I believed to be the supervisor, who said the cars were not being returned as fast as they were being reserved (in other words, they were renting cars that they didn't have). He told me there were 3 other customers ahead of me and he couldn't tell me how much longer the wait would be. I proposed telling the people behind me in line that they were being promised cars that weren't available, and he said, "I can't stop you. You'd be doing me a favor." I cancelled the reservation online and took an Uber to my destination. While eating lunch at a restaurant, I received a call from a Thrifty agent 45 minutes later to let me know that my car was ready, unaware that I had cancelled the reservation. This is my first attempt in 20 years to rent a car, so I don't know if this is common.

Thrifty sold us a Sedan but were out of Sedans when we got there. We had to upgrade to a large SUV and pay more $ or wait an hour for a Sedan to arrive. We also ordered, and paid for an EZ PASS that was invalid. So not only did we pay for the EZ PASS, we also paid for tolls the entire way back which was upwards for $100. When I called Thrifty, they said they would remove the EZ PASS charge which never happened. And if they didn't, I had to wait for my final bill then call. It's not even worth the time. The Cars we're cheaper than most other rentals, but I can now see why.

In a time when it was really tough to find a rental car, Thrifty came through big time. Everyone was really easy to deal with and the car itself was exactly what we needed and didn’t feel over charged. Definitely got our money’s worth!
1.9 Horrible24 Aug 2021
Classic bait and switch. They offer the lowest price on-line, but when you go to pick up your car, they have NONE at the category chosen. You have a choice: wait for a car to come in - I was told maybe 2 hours (and this was already after a 35 minute wait in line) or pay $10 more/day for next level up. And when the folks in line behind me don't have their mid-size car, guess what...they got to pay for the SUV. What a racket! And they simply wash the cars and turn 'em around to the next person. 15 miles down the round, a maintenance sensor went off - and went off every day. Return of car was a joke. Nobody with an electronic scanner to confirm that car was returned on time. I told the guy about the sensor - he said not to worry - it will be checked by the mechanics before it goes out again. Yes, that's probably what the last customer was told as well. Never got an itemized receipt. Cost was $150 more than expected. A reservation means nothing. They should be paying the customer because they don't have the product ordered. SCAM!

The worst car rental experience ever!Absolutely nothing!This location is super shady with their pricing. Why do you, as KAYAK and priceline.com, allow this company to post on your website that unlimited miles are included in their pricing without an asterisk or something to let the consumer know there’s an actual restriction for in-state customers before reserving the vehicle? I was already under pressure to get this vehicle for the holiday trip my family and I were having to NYC. I had to find out at the store that was 30 minutes away from me. Lastly, the staff there was super rude, and had their lines ready to justify their shady practices. Not once did they apologize. They just went to the fine print to clear themselves. I mean, how many people read the fine print on their cellphone contacts, new phone policy, or new credit card policy? I bet not many do. That's why you post that restriction on the front, so people can make the right choice right away and not waste time. I’ve had bad experience renting vehicles, but this takes the cake.

Like that was going to help me in some way! Will never, ever do business with them again!!

Very helpful staff and great value!We eanted an exonomical solution for transportation. We ended up getting a mini van which was actually cheaper than an Economy Class vehicle. Plus we got an upgrade!

Its not unlimited miles if renting locallyOf course they had restrictions on unlimited miles which was could be found after clicking through the littlest details. Still cheaper than other places.

The staff was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable.We did have a bit of a wait before a second staff member came out, but he was apologetic and very professional. He even provided us a free upgrade. The price of the rental was high, but I also booked last minute and it seems that all rental prices are very high right now.

Staff was friendlyWe never actually got our car because we would have had to wait 2 hours for it. They had run out of cars even though we had a reservation.

The drop off was the best part of the experience. The gentleman who helped us was professional and efficient. The car itself ran just fineWhen you rent a car and there are visible parts missing-two holes where two what look like lights should have been and there is a long list of "dings"-if is off-putting. And when you have a "this car needs to be serviced" notice every time you start--that is off-putting too. It makes you feel like you are driving a car with problems.

I got to the airport around 11:50am while my rental was scheduled to be picked up around noon and was told that they have no cars for me . Rental was paid for in full and yet company didn’t hold the vehicle for me but released it prior to another customer. Customer rep for Sixt then informed me that she will put me on a waiting list with remaining clients and I could try back around 3pm. I am disappointed in both Kayak for partnering with Sixt and them for misleading their clients.

Deceptive - ordered a mid-size SUV but only offered a small SUV until we had to pay up for the vehicle originally booked.

Car had faint smell of cigarette smoke. Other than that we had a great experience and the Volvo SUV was a great drive.

Needed a car that night after a cancelled flight. Was returning the car the following morning. Was gouged for $330 for the lowest level option. Believed there were zero other options available so took it. Got to the lot and there were hundreds of cars, at 7pm on a Friday night. The O'Hare rental car facility was great.

Please hire more folks to work at the front desk. There were 18 people in line and only 3 people to help them. I stood in line for 40 minutes.

Pickup was confusing as avis had no one at the desks, ghost town. Drop off was simple.Vehicle had broken glass under the seats and on floor mats at pickup, must've had broken windows previously?? 6 hour drive sounded like driving with the windows open, very loud and interior was not clean even though avis put a sticker on the dash starting vehicle was. Clean/sanitize from top to bottom....

Car was great, Rental office great.As I was leaving the check oil and check tire light was on I ask the gentleman as I was leaving about it he said they just probably forgot to reset. It was late so I trusted and left. The next morning heading to my daughters hockey game, the car will not start. Could not detect key. I finally called Uber and continued to try to start actually got started before he got there so we drive to game. I had an hour before it started so I called Avis. The First Lady told me I could either go to wal mart to fix or drive 60 miles both ways to get a new car.... I said not an option. She put me on hold for forever I finally hung up and called back a nicer gentleman found one closer 20 minutes. I drove over they didn’t have cars available. By this time my head is about to spin off. So I drove back to game left my car running watched game and then proceeded to call again which I had to then drove to airport another 20 minutes away and get a new car. They were nice and helped me out so the service is lost somewhere in between. I will never use Avis again.

Pickup is like a pressure cooker environment. Deliberately made me wait (50 minutes wait on a weekday) and selling me lot of unnecessary services. I already bought insurance and they added insurance to bill without asking me. I still don’t know if I’d paid for gas, even though I filled gas while returning car. Very bad experience. Car isn’t of good quality either. It keeps prompting me about engine oil needing change and made me anxious if it going to stop on freeway.

I reserved this car through CarRentals.com via Kayak. The reservation confirmation explicitly said: "Total amount of your booking USD 68.57" When I checked the car in, the total charge was USD 100.04, that is, $31.47 (45%) more than expected. Apparently the difference was in tax & "facility charge"

Drop off was quick and easy. Cars were easy to find and instructions given were very clear.I had reserved an intermediate sized vehicle, but was first suggested an SUV. Don’t try to up-sell in such a sneaky fashion. If I had wanted an SUV, I would have asked for one.

Anything good was negated by your customer service!Don’t let us reserve a car when you don’t have any. Your agents let everybody wait in line for two hours and didn’t let any of us know there were no cars. Suddenly the gate agents grabbed their stuff and clicked out without announcing anything. Closed your desk while we were waiting for our reser

The staff was happy to see and serve me. Good customer service.Even though I called ahead, there were no full-sized trucks on the lot when I arrived. They had to get one from some auxiliary lot and drive it in for me. The truck they grabbed had not been properly cleaned - filthy steering wheels and side windows so dirty that I could not see the side mirrors. National made up for this by giving me a free day of rent (refund), and a deep apology from the management. So I will try them again next time.
