Pros:Air traffic is at an all time high and some people don't take into consideration that rental car companies sold off their fleets due to the pandemic. Additionally, when people extend their rentals it affects the next person that had reserved the same size vehicle. Fortunately, even though the wait was a little longer than usual, we had no issues picking up or returning the vehicle at O'Hare.Reviewed 30 Jun 2021

Pros:Staff tried their best, kept their cool but our car and many others were not there for our 8 am pick up time nor were we given any advance notice that there was going to be a delay. Many disgruntled clientsCons:Have the cars there at the scheduled time or don’t accept reservations. At least give us a head’s up so we could have done something else for 3 hours….Reviewed 16 Jun 2021

Pros:NothingCons:We were unable to collect the car because of issues with Thrifty. They were unable to provide us with a car in a reasonable time at the time of our rental. We arrived at the car rental desk and found 100 people queued in line at the counter. In talking with other people, we heard the line was over 1.5 hours long. We waited for 30 minutes and the line did not move. At that point, we were going to miss the appointment that was the reason for our trip, so we left and made other arrangements. (We have small children and waiting for several hours in line was not going to be possible for us.) I attempted to call Thrifty and from the line, but was unable to reach an agent. I am happy to provide a photo of the line. Given this experience and Thrifty's inability to provide us a car in a reasonable timeframe at our reservation time, we are requesting a refund for our reservation from 9 Jun 2021

Pros:Waited over 2 hours for my vehicle pick up and missed my conference. Staff was not friendly and seemed to careless that a line and formed (literally) out the door of the building. Nothing was offered, and they even tried to up sell me. Thrifty is trash, and the reviews at the Chicago Ohare airport reflect exactly what I experienced. I'll never be using this service again.Cons:Adequately staff the customer service desk, not overbook, better customer service.Reviewed 7 Jun 2021
