I thought I asked for a 4 pm. Drop off but I must have made a mistake as it showed 10am so I asked if it could be extended up to 4pm and was told sure, no problem but was not told by the manager and owner I would be charged an additional day or $75. Which was on top of the 75 I already paid for dropping it off at the airport. If I was told I could have just dropped it off at the pickup place on time and saved $150. and simply taken a cab to the airport. Also I was offered which I needed a car with g.p.S. But it was a very large car that I did not feel comfortable with as I am 81 yrs old and the smaller car which is all they had was not what I had requested and did not have g.p.s.. the next day I came back for a car with gps but they did not have one,they said so gave me a Garmen but charged me $100. and really it did not work that well. So you asked for my thoughts and this is how I feel. The girl I rented from was excellent. Just be honest and up front!!

Yes the staff was helpful and polite. Most notably the return was exceptionally quick and easy.

Cons:

More counter help. The customer in front of me asked EVERY question imaginable and some that were unimaginable and then of course the attendant was trying to up sell. Sorry but the last thing you want to do after a long day of traveling is to wait in line unnecessarily. Once they got done our transaction went smoothly and we were on our way.

Pros:

Drop off was off hours. The signage for Hertz was poor. Only Avis and budget were marked prominently on the lot. Signage and instructions could be more obvious.

Cons:

Thrifty pickup was poor as no cars were available. They had to shuttle me to the local Hertz instead to complete the contract. It took about 1.5hrs to get my vehicle. Once gotten, it was fine as it looks like they gave me an upgraded car-by choice or not, I don’t know.

Pros:

The staff were friendly, but there was a long line to pick up and a long line to drop off. You need a second staff person in the mornings. I won't rent from you again in Halifax. It's too big a hassle.

Cons:

The car was also dirty. Not horrible, but not washed, and had dirty floor mats and a couple of scattered pieces of debris inside. This was not a terrible experience, but the pickup-dropoff wait of more than half an hour made it not worth it. I went by the counter of the competition in the bus station, and they had a much shorter line. I'll use them next time, which is upcoming in the spring.
