Pros:There was a sign informing us that the agent was not available at that time. An 800 number was given but no one answered and the mailbox was full. Paperwork and keys were placed in a Dropbox on the counter but no directions were available.Reviewed 20 Jul. 2020

Night time nightmareCons:I had scheduled a smaller vehicle so that gas mileage would be good. When I got to the rental office desk, I was told that they didn't have any of the smaller vehicles so I would be getting a larger vehicle. I was then asked where I was going and when I said Maryland and Pennsylvania I was told that those states might be (I'm not sure of the exact terminology) extended mileage states. Upon checking, I was told that I would have to pay $20 a day for my 7 day rental. When I pointed out that I read that I would have unlimited mileage I was told that there was "small print" that mentioned about the extended mileage states. (This is not "unlimited mileage" and I believe it to be deceptive advertising) I was finally offered a "truck" for $10 extra per day which I declined due to gas mileage issues. I asked for my cards back, called for my ride to return and waited 30 minutes in the night air to be picked up. I scheduled a rental with another company when I got home and left the next morning without a hitch. I did tell the worker at Thrifty that I felt they would lose a lot of business with this deceptive advertising and I stand by that. I know they lost my business that night.Reviewed 4 May 2017

Cons:The van we rented broke down 45 min after we picked it up. Called the office and they said they would send someone 2 1/2 hours later no one had showed up so I had to go pick up my boyfriend and we parked and locked the van took the keys back to the office. The manager was finally there and he said they had us a brand new mini van to exchange. The only problem was it seated 7 people and we had 8. That is why we rented a 12 passenger van. Then he told the lady to refund us for whatever we hadn't used. This is when I lost it!!! You rent us a van that breaks down 45 min after we pick it up you leave us sitting on the side of the road for 2 1/2 hours and you don't want to give us a full refund. I forgot the part about the lady in the office hung up on my boyfriend told him she could serve him better if she wasn't on the phone with him and hung up. This was our first and last experience with Thrifty. We went to enterprise and got a 12 passenger van and had wonderful service and a great trip on thanks to Thrifty. They are suppose to refund my credit card for a full refund, but another customer in the office said it took him 21 days to get his refund. Terrible experience all the way around.Reviewed 15 Aug. 2016
