Where to catch the rental car van was not apparent and I a little walk. My car was filthy! The fabric seats had stains all over them. I had to put a towel down to even feel comfortable sitting on them. The inside door rests were also filthy. They were supposed to be a light gray and were so dirty they were actually a dark gray. When I was driving and the sun hit my windows I had a hard time seeing the windshield was so dirty. I realize this was a cheaper rental but come on! Clean up your cars!!!

Service was good for both pick-up and return. Cars brakes and transmission were a bit sketchy but it gotthrough the 1,700 miles in eight days okay. Overall reasonable value.

The car had lots of ding and scratches. It was a different model. The bigger issue is that the tags were expired and I was pulled over by the police late at nite because of it. Which made me very nervous to drive it.

Getting from/to airport was a cinch.... Drivers were friendly. Car was ready when we arrived and it had all the safety features of our own Toyota car. Good mileage, which was a plus given the amount of driving we did (and cost of fuel out West).

I went to pick up my car (location is offsite & you must take a shuttle) and an agent pointed to a printed sign taped to the desk that read “we do not take same day reservations,” and treated me like I did something wrong. They told me they had no available vehicles. Why do they allow you to book online (providing a confirmation number) if their policy is no same day reservations? Why do they have a printed sign taped to their desk about such a thing unless it is a common issue they experience with people coming in with a confirmed reservation? Shady, shady business practice.

Reserved and paid for a Camry or equivalent. When we arrived we were told that only a Corolla was available or we would have to wait 45 minutes for a Camry equivalent. The Corolla was dirty and not equivalent to a Camry at all. Terrible rental experience. Would not rent here again. The shuttle experience to/from the airport was the only good part. Very helpful drivers and comfortable shuttle.

If you do not have a credit card , you cannot rent a car from a place to another. You have to bring back the car at the same place where you did take the car. And that despite kayak approved the trip. So i could not have a car arrived at the airport as expected and planed for my trip to another airport. I had to find a solution by myself with a competitor and it was for sure more expensive. If you do have to rent a car from a place to another and if you do not have a credit card but only a debit card as me do not use kayak as they will put you in a delicate situation.

The line at the pick up counter was long since there was only one (1) counter rep working. After about 10 min another counter rep returned and it helped to shorten the wait time, but it still took 25 min to get to the counter and begin the rental process.
10.0 Excellent13 May 2022
Thrifty was very efficient with drop off. Unfortunately, if they would let us review insurance options prior to pickup or with online reservation, the process would be faster. And really...$50-60 a day for insurance?? Insurance would have been more than the entire rental. I would have liked to verify with my own car insurance, prior to or at online reservation, since each state is different for coverage. Otherwise, the experience was easy and efficient.
2.0 Mediocre10 May 2022
Did not have a great experience via Priceline. Stood in line for over an a hour for a car for them to tell me my reservation wasn’t complete even though I prepaid for the car. Thrifty said I needed a voucher with an it number as well as another number. Had a Priceline travel specialist on the phone for 40 mins and they had no clue what thrifty was talking about. I had to rent a car via thrifty directly and pay them to get a car and request a refund through Priceline since at this point I have paid for 2 cars. No idea if I will actually receive the refund.
2.0 Mediocre2 Apr 2022
Car was not ready when I arrived, even though I was an hour and a half later than I said I would be because of flight delay. They said it would take at least a half an hour to get my car ready, said there would be no USB port in the car or any ability to charge a cell phone in it, and they would not upgrade me to another car at the same price. When I canceled my reservation, they refused to refund my money, because I had made the reservation through an online service - even though it was Thrifty that had charged me. A bad experience overall.

The insurance offered on the kayak site wasn't accepted by dollar. I learned this after flying and attempt to pick up the car. Kayak said my total, with insurance and another driver would be $444. When I picked up the car, and they would accept the $55 insurance that I had already paid for, the total was $950. This included an $200 deposit that they said I'll get back, but even still $750. I will never do business with dollar or kayak again. The $55 insurance was refunded. They told me it's a third party company that works with kayak, but the actual rental company can choose to not accept it. I'm so pissed. On the day I picked up the rental, no other company had any cars available, so I had no choice but to be screwed by these shady people. Take your business elsewhere or just don't go through kayak. I don't have a lot of money, this vacation was a well budgeted luxury. Enjoy my money, I guarantee I need it more than you.

I lost my credit card that I originally booked rental with Priceline (Kayak), and neither Dollar, nor Priceline would allow me to use my Visa debit card, or switch to my travel companions name and credit card. I was forced to switch to Hertz with no reservation, which cost me $475 for a one day rental versus the $213 I originally paid through Priceline (Kayak). I spoke with several customer service agents from both Dollar and Priceline, and they were all powerless to connect me to my reserved and paid for car sitting 50 feet away from the counter agent.

The car was nice. And complimentary shuttle was great.Customer service could have been better, it did not feel that welcoming. When shuttling having my information to verify we aren’t getting into a strangers car would have felt safer. When going over the pre damages on the car before I leave I felt that it would be more beneficial for them to come out and inspect the car with me rather than me doing it alone. Security deposit amount needs to be listed because that was a surprise. But we enjoyed the car and returning it was easy. I just feel that those other things I mentioned need to be worked on.

The rate was great and I like that they had Toyota Sequoias.The pick-up drop off is a little clunky. The exterior signs at the airport do not say Advantage, the driver for another company explained that one shuttle picked up for Advantage and the other. And I know that this is not necessarily Advantage's fault but when you google Advantage Airport another location in SLC shows up.

I rented with Budget and they said "a car had been reserved for me", but when I arrived, there were no cars available. I waited hours and ultimately had to figure something else out. The worst part is, they didn't tell me no cars were available. The clerk at the counter said a car was there, but they needed to clean it and it would be read in ~15 minutes. This was clearly a lie. After 4 hours of being told it still needed 15 min of cleaning, I realized they were lying to me and there actually was no car on the lot. I AM NEVER USING BUDGET AGAIN.

I prepaid the rental on line for $1764.94. At pickup I was asked about add-ons(which I had declined to get online). I NEVER choose any of them because of coverage through my credit card and my car insurance. BUT I did choose the prepay the gas option this time because the price per gallon they offered was just under $5 per gallon and in our destination, California, it was over $6. I declined all other options(I thought) but I see I was charged $39.899 per day for LDW (whatever that is) and $8.99 for premium road service. I have the top AAA option for passenger car plus my credit card has me covered so WHY would I choose the premium road service option? I complained at drop-off and was told I had to go through some Hertz number. This whole thing is not acceptable

The staff was good. The car was great but I do not think I will use them again.I am not sure why I was charge an extra $35 over the price $75 I prepaid for two days at $25/day. I did not notice it was a "shuttle" service to pick up the car and it took a while to find the pick up spot. No fun since they did not answer phone.

the first rental car I had shut off when I was driving down a hill. After feeling like the car was dangerous I went to exchange cars at the rental agency. I was treated with disrespect and without any apologies from this less than ideal situation.

Pretty poor pickup/customer serviceThe car was clean/in good condition. The price was reasonable.The woman at the front desk was exceptionally rude and unprofessional. On her cell phone throughout the conversation. She made me get out of line after waiting about 45 minutes to be helped, because the fraud detection fired on my card and it declined. I was on the phone with chase and had it remedied in less that 5 minutes, but had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes to get back in line and be helped. My boyfriend offered to put the hold on his card, but they refused and said I would have to ad him as an authorized driver and pay more if we did that. All and all I’d say find a different place. I wouldn’t use them again, even though the car was fine. I was seeing red leaving here.

The associate was very helpful in explaining everything.This was my first time renting a car and it was a mixed experience. The car wasn't very clean when I received it. When I made the reservation with a drop off of 4:30 AM, I wasn't told they would be closed and that I'd just have to leave it outside the gate. Also, I wasn't told about the $200 deposit they take at the counter.

The staff was amazing, I wish I got His name but he was super helpful, very efficient and super friendly.I think the cost could be more up front, I wasnt aware of the deposit. I know It was probably somewhere in the agreement, but other than that it was great.

I ended up canceling the reservation the day I was to pick up the car and ended up using another company. The number given in the confirmation email to call once you land for shuttle service to pick up the car was no longer in service so I googled for a different number. That brought you to an automatic messaging instructing you to call the same number to arrange airport pick up. After about an hour of waiting unsure of whether or not any shuttle was coming I received a text saying someone would be by in about another hour to pick us up. By that point i had already canceled the reservation and booked with Avis and picked the car up at the airport, no shuttle necessary.

The van was not a newer van it had 73k miles and the tires were scalloped so at highway speeds we were in a cement shaker. We called about 45 mins out for a trade and they declined to meet us. Anytime we called for pickup it required multiple attempts to reach someone and even though we gave an hour notice when we were returning the attendant was not at the office and we waited 10 mins for him because he did not receive the Multiple calls of our arrival It was useable van but a mediocre experience on all fronts but it was cheaper by $100 I would get a nicer van and pay the $100 more

No information provided re; you must in call for Airport pick up. Shuttle easy to miss being a red GMC van with NO signage on sides (like all the other companies) - only a curling paper sign in window on drivers side.Sketchy location. Seedy Ramada Inn room with badly stained carpet. Replace with nicer wood/tile flooring. Need signage out front for AVR, signage needed on Shuttle Van, instructions clearly stating need to call Airport for Shuttle pick-up on confitmation email.

NothingThey called as i was getting on the flight to go to the destination telling me they didn't have the type of car available. They also informed they were closing at 6 pm. My flight was going to land at 6:30. They could not accommodate. I had to scramble and rent from Budget. Terrible.

4wd unavailableEverything was quick and nice customer service but unhelpful that they only had 4vehicles to choose from.My husband called an hour before pickup to make sure they had 4wd or allwheel. Instead of just checking to verify, they said oh there is a 95% Chance there will be a one. Well I arrived with 4 vehicles to choose from. None 4wd or awd. Very frustrating since I had to drive to Denver in a snow storm. would have went with another company had i known. It’s Utah, please have 4wd vehicles.

Charged TwiceGreat CarI was charged twice for my rental car and was not offered any help. I showed the woman helping me when i was picking up the car that I had been charged twice, yet she assured me that one of the charges would disappear. The charge never dropped and it took away all of the money I had for my weekend. I called back the next day to ask if they can help, and they said it was up to me to fix it and I had to call my bank to figure it out.

FIREFLY CLOSED EARLYWe were not given a chance to use them.Our flight arrived at 1:15AM and Firefly's hours were until 2:00 AM. They decided to close early and left many families stranded at the airport. We ended up using Budget and paying more because we did not have a reservation. When we called Firefly, the number did not lead to the SLC location and the person kept telling us on the phone that they should be there and that they were on a break. We waited more than 10 minutes. Budget told us they left for the day/eve. Bad service. Don't use them unless you're sure they will be open.

The vehicle had some issues - the oil light was on so I had to manually check the oil since they wouldn't do it for me. There was no windshield washer fluid. There were tons of scratches and nicks in the vehicle, so I had to take pictures and document everything. The lines were terrible and it's obvious they were overwhelmed. That being said, the car ran.

We arrived (granted two hours and five minutes late) to find that the car we had prepaid for had been given to someone else. Nu Car said our only option was to wait indefinitely for another suitable car to arrive. Their lot was empty and they said it could be hours or days. Thankfully, a suitable car arrived in a bit over an hour. Still, considering we had prepaid, we felt they should have held our car. Next, we found out we were not allowed to drive the car to Idaho, one of our intended destinations. Considering Idaho was only an hour and a half away, we were quite astonished. We had never rented a car with such restrictions before. As we had prepaid and our booking was non-refundable, we had to eat the cost of renting a car from another agency for that portion of our trip. In the end, it was hard to beat Nu Car rental rates. However, apparently they’re a small company and we weren’t prepared for these quirks - we should have read the fine print. We gambled again by getting another bargain deal from Fox Rent A Car in SLC for our trip to Idaho and thankfully had no issues with that company. We appreciated Nu Car’s rates, just be sure to read the fine print before you rent from them.

There is fine print to the fine print if you are picking up locally. There isn’t unlimited mileage on their cars. You can pay per mile or per day which effectively doubled my rental cost. I cancelled and went to another rental car company.

Top tips for hiring a car at Salt Lake City Airport

  • When visiting the area, a car rental at Salt Lake City Airport is a great way to explore and head to all the attractions on your to-do list. As the city is not known for being particularly walkable and does not have its own extensive public transportation system, driving is one of the best ways to move between neighborhoods and visit nearby towns, such as Ogden. Having your own Salt Lake City Airport car rental also makes it easy to transport any sports equipment or luggage.
  • Depending on your specific preferences and needs, there are quite a few models for you to choose from for your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport. If you will be doing quite a bit of driving or traveling with several other passengers, you may want to choose a spacious SUV. Those that primarily plan on staying in downtown Salt Lake can always opt for an economy or compact model instead, as these are a bit smaller and generally are easier to park and move through narrow roads.
  • Once you are ready to return your car rental at Salt Lake City Airport, you can do so by bringing it back to the exact area where you initially picked it up. All rental companies that have branches at Salt Lake City Airport keep their fleets on-site at airport property, so make sure to remember where you initially picked your vehicle up from, as this is where you will be dropping it off. Some companies at the airport may allow you to return your vehicle after hours, but this will depend on their individual policy.
  • Salt Lake City is a large city that is a major business hub, so the streets often have traffic. If you want to avoid getting caught in congestion, try to pick up and drop off your vehicle around rush hour, which is normally between the times of 7 and 9 am and 4.30 and 6.30 pm. You will find that there are a few roads that tend to be busier than others, and these include Interstates 15, 154, and 215.
