Cons:Undocumented fees. No notification at any time during the booking and confirmation process. Very disappointing.Reviewed 22 Aug 2020

Pros:drop off and pick up was very easyCons:the care I rented, a Nissan Rogue does not have a seat option to raise and lower it. It was uncomfortable to drive as I am short and was unable to adjust the seat to a better driving position where I could actually see the front end of the car.Reviewed 15 Dec 2020

Cons:Drop off was frustrating; still have not received an email receipt from a Sunday evening return—there was no attendant I could find and am worried it hasn’t been checked in.Reviewed 24 Nov 2020

Cons:The car smelled like cigarettes every time I drive.Reviewed 25 Jul 2020

Pros:Staff was helpful and courteous on pickup and dropoff.Cons:The car had a large obstruction (1/1/2 to 2 inches) on the windshield, in the middle of my field of vision. When I picked up the car I just thought it was from a bug, and when the wipers did not remove it I planned on cleaning the windshield myself when I got home (was leaving on a trip early the next morning). The substance on the windshield was like a hardened glue, and I could not remove it. I tried calling your service number but could not reach a representative. I left on my trip (7 hour drive)early the next morning and had to drive with the obstruction in my line of vision.Reviewed 17 Aug 2020

Pros:So fast, so efficient!Cons:We had a short wait for the shuttle but not terrible.Reviewed 18 Mar 2021

Downgraded, lacked power, and huge air freshener oPros:Was disappointed when arrived and informed kia soul was only vehicles available despite reserving a full size vehicle. Rate was discounted to compensate - fair enough. The soul rides rough and could not hold speed on a modest grade without down shifting and running at 4500 room. Rather annoying. The car had an extremely strong air freshener smell to it. Not good for allergies. Other than the lack of power the car ran well and was economical. Base insurance in CT cost almost as much as the car rental. No more Thrifty for me.Cons:Downgrade, lack of power, bumpy ride, odorReviewed 17 Oct 2016

Pros:convenient location, quoted price (actual price was significantly more!)Cons:When dropping the car off, there was only one employee behind the counter working with a couple. He asked if I was dropping off and then told me to "move the car over there." He didn't say "please" or ask nicely, simply commanded me to do it. I walked back in and he eventually told the couple he'd be back and disappeared for at least 5 minutes. A shuttle driver finally showed up and I walked outside and asked if I could drop the car off with him, explaining that the person behind the counter just disappeared. He said, "I'm just tired of doing returns." He did help but the service and the latter employee complaining about his job left much to be desired.Reviewed 5 Sep 2018

Thrifty ghosted mePros:There was nothing to likeCons:You need to call them to have a shuttle pick you up but they don’t have their number listed with the rest of the shuttles. I tried to call the office but the number went to the National call center and they refused to contact the office at the airport and could not request the shuttle. Then they all left for the day without calling me or following through with my reservation, even after I gave them my flight info beforehand. Avis hooked me up quickly and easily.Reviewed 30 Jul 2018

Pros:Everything happened as it was supposed to.Cons:Nothing was 1st class and it felt like it could go south a number of times. However, for the money, I have no issue with the value delivered.Reviewed 5 Jun 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:The car was ready when we arrived at 5am in the morning!Cons:Too bad the agent didn't explain to us at pick up that we could drop off at another location prior to the 5am opening of the main center. We just happened to find the second location at 4am when I saw the shuttle. This would have saved me worrying about the tight schedule we had for the morning. As it turns out, the staff at the second location was super accommodating and got us to the airport in record time.Reviewed 26 Nov 2017
