They had two vehicles that both smelled like smoke. The employees “don’t have the discount codes” anymore. Apparently, you have to figure out the code and bring it to them to input. So no military discount.

The staff at the JFK Enterprise location was absolutely fantastic. Jesse was the man who checked us in and he really made it easy for us. We made a mistake with the return of our reservation - we accidentally booked a round trip instead of a one-way rental - and he fixed it quickly and with no extra charge to us. We also had tons of bags and he offered to pull the car around so we didn't have to carry them all to the car. He really went above and beyond to make the pick-up process easy for us and was extremely friendly. The car was very clean and ran very well!Nothing!

Fast pickup, no long processing at the counter. Waited on immediately and car was ready, not complicated with a lot of questions. The actual drop off was fast, but the first problem occurred within 1 hour of drop off when I received the email itemizing the charges which was wrong.I was incorrectly charged for refueling two gallons of gas, even though I topped off the tank less than two miles from the rental car drop off location. When I FUELED the vehicle I clicked the pump 3 to 4 times to make sure the tank was topped off, and the fuel gauge read full with 350 miles of available range shown on the vehicles computer. I had to call to get this refuel charge removed. Now I’m worried about the EZ-Pass charges not being charged correctly.

The hertz counter at JFK airport was great. The person was nice and it was a smooth process.The booking at Canandaigua was scheduled to drop off after hours. But the Canandaigua location wasn’t incredibly difficult to see at night since it was just a small sign in a window of a building that was primarily for another company. Then the out of hours drop box had no sign is was for hertz. It was plastered with the logo of the company that clearly was the main company of the building. When I felt uncomfortable with dropping the key in an unmarked (with hertz) drop box, I received these crazy suggestions to just lock the keys in the car but that I would be charged for an unlock fee. One rep told me the Canandaigua location was not an after hours location whereas another rep did say that was the case. I offered to bring the car back the neck day so that I could safety and comfortably return the car but was told I would incur a late fee. In all - while hertz was willing to talk to me, they did not seem to have it fully together when trying to give their car back to them and the suggested solutions seemed inappropriate while the right solution (have a branded after hours drop off box) did not exist.

Car pick up at JFK was straight forward. Karen was extremely helpful. Pick up experience was great.Got stuck in traffic & did not get car to dropoff before it closed. Called customer service to find alternate dropoff location. Was on phone for 1 hour with 4 different reps & neither provided solution. Danny (47916) & another rep (N847396) were most unhelpful. Focused on selling extension. Terrible

Drop off was easy and the shuttle left timely.The pick-up experience was slow and there were no cars in the Full size area, even though we were told that there were. It took two conversations and a while for a car to show up for us. Overall not a very clear or efficient process.

I called on 8/20/18 @ 9:10am to cancell the reservation. The representative person who answered my phone call stated he cancelled the reservation with 50$ cancellation fee, which I agreed upon.

All is well, machines, speed of issue and return. One remark. Many employees speak poor English and do not try to achieve understanding with a foreign client. I was insured with insurance, although I explained that I do not need it, because I did not need insurance. The bank provides this service when renting a car abroad. They seemed to understand me, but nevertheless they issued insurance. Unfortunately. I was tired after a long flight and did not check the papers. I understand that my fault and I can not make a claim, but the unpleasant residue has remained.

I originally had a van reserved but when I got there no van was available I was offered a Nissan Pathfinder which is not the same size and would be uncomfortable for the other passengers. When I inquired about the Ford Expeditions I saw in the lot I was told that those might have engine problems and that was why they weren't an option. After explaining that the Nissan would not be able to fit the people who will be in the car then I was offered an Expedition for an up charge. I accepted the deal because I needed the car asap but at this point I felt lied to and paid more money because they could not meet the reservation and essentially tried to downgrade me originally. What was the point of a reservation if not only could they not meet it but end up charging me more money for not being able to hold up their end of the deal.

A big wate of my time.When I arrived to pick up the car I reserved a week in advance at 9:45 AM, it was unavailable because I was "late" for my 9 AM pick up time. Economy did not contact me and was unable to offer me any assistance. They also stated they do not take walk-ins only reservations, so it was easy to determine that a car had never been available that day. Two other customers present at the time with reservations also arrived to find that there were no cars available. An abysmal experience. I can not believe Economy can run a business this way.

About a million hidden fees and no phone number in existence to get ahold of the specific branch. Having to pay $23 for EZ Pass every SINGLE day I had the car when I used it 2 days or $15 EVERY time you go through a toll PLUS the toll? This is the literal definition of highway robbery. Skip Thrifty particularly from the airport if you don’t have to pick up there. What a giant waste of time and money. Plus the “deep clean” on the car left a used mask between the seats and what looked like sweat stains in the back. So glad that’s an extra charge!

They cancel my order because my flight was delayed and I won't able to pick it up at the scheduled time.

My experience was terrible. An hour into the trip i see that my front left tire is losing air pressure constantly. I call the roadside assistance number who only pickup the phone after making me wait 30 mins. They finally send some road assistance. The mechanic realises that the spare tire is useless. Only good for 30-40 miles. I try calling drivo but they never pick up the phone! I had to pay the mechanic out of my pocket and buy a new tire! I wasted 2-3 hours doing this. I reached my hotel at 2am in the morning. I had to drive in pitch dark because I didn't want to lose the 300dollars i had paid to book my hotel. How can an agency not pick up the phone in the middle of the day! And not provide a spare tire for a 4 days trip! After i came back and explained this to the manager he refused to accept any mistake on his part.

Booked me for earlier than planned and then wouldn’t honor my late arrival. Just robots, they can’t help you, avoid it.

I do not like the shadiness of how the process of reserving the rental went down. I was quoted $350+ for the rental only to get to the site and that was not even close to the amount that I had to pay. The amount nearly doubled. All fees should be added into the rental cost at the very beginning, or there needs to be better transparency for the customer about what the cost will be when picking up.

They cancel the same day I was supposed to pick up the van because they claim that didn’t have any cars in the place.

We were 2 hours late in picking up our car and they said that they no longer had full-size cars. I had to pay considerably extra for a cheep SUV.
1.9 Horrible9 Sep 2021
old dirty car with 51000 miles, pickup took more than one hour, attendant ignored me at the waiting line willfully bypassing me at the checking line. demanded same price for the smaller car, Nissan Sentra even if we reserved Camry, full size car. my insurance with proper policy number was not acceptable. over all very unpleasant experience. Even if car was checked out after 4:30PM, they demanded car to be returned by 1PM on the day of return as reserved after one full week rental.

Pick up and drop off was extremely quick and easy! We picked up our vehicle at JFK on 9/4 late in the evening and dropped off our vehicle back at JFK on 9/6 early in the morning and every single staff member was kind and helpful. I wish I would’ve asked their names to include in this review. Great customer service and extremely friendly staff members!

Bad wheel bearings - low tires alertThe car was available on time.The car got terrible mileage partially due to grinding wheel bearings, and needed air in tires- no wiper fluid. I performed the easier tasks of course. Due to my business constraints, I had to time to exchange the vehicle.

Horrible experienceNothingThe individuals never specified what was needed to rent the car and also had a nasty attitude when asked about renting the car itself. They are horrible at customer service and if kayak is Offering service as such I will never be using this service again.

Paid nearly $800 for 3 days for M-series BMW and guy rents one without a reservation in front of me in line. I come in with that reservation and they tell me they don’t have any BMWs anymore and give me a Volvo at that price.

Stop hitting us with all those air port fees and un nessary insurance that we don't need also i am an American express card holder and I used it... they were still trying to Shaval down my throat those fancy insurance.then hit me out of nowhere with$120 air port fee.why? Why you don't let people know about that.then I reserved a Toyota camary and I was charged for a Toyota but in reality I got a Nissan centra which is a down grade form a camary they gave me a break of 40$ it's a joke. It's also with the easy pass you try to take advantage on costumers.

The staff was rude, the car was filthy, they told me I would get refunded if I returned it early, and then they charged me full price. Truly awful from start to finish.

My flight was cancelled and thus I could not pick up the car in time. Then I tried to cancel the reservation and refund the money. Sixt asked me to contact Priceline since the reservation was done through Priceline. Priceline has the worst customer service, their robot told me to contact SixT. Then SixT asked me to contact Priceline. Then Priceline automatically asked me to contact SixT. So I was drop into an infinite loop. Finally I contacted my credit card and found the deal was in "pending" state. It will be cancelled by credit card after 30 days. So I just rely on Credit card to do this. What.a nightmare to use Kayak or Priceline to access a service indirectly! Next time, I will always directly contact service provider and cut all the mid layer agents. Bye bye Priceline and Kayak.
