The employees at the pick up desk were awful. Of all of the car rental companies at the airport theirs was the only one with a queue of any size. They were unapologetic and rude. I had the rental booked for 3pm and I was in line at 2:50pm. After waiting in line for over an hour I was told they didn’t have a car and I would have to wait. We I asked if there would be in compensation or even a voucher for food I was told that ‘I can wait for a car or not, we already have your money.’ We didn’t get to a car until 4:45.Reviewed 15 Nov. 2022

The customer service is really good and the value for money is really experienced.Reviewed 14 Nov. 2022

My car category was unavailable when I arrived at the Ohare counter. I was charged an extra fee for a different car unless I was willing to wait for my car category to become available with no guarantee as to when it would (at least another 45 minutes when I had already been waiting in line at the counter for 45 minutes) . The lady behind the counter was rude, short, and did not explain the problem. It felt like a classic bait and switch and I was being manipulated for more money.Reviewed 25 Oct. 2022

Cars are quite old - presumably reflected in the price, never quite get a car to the standard offered even if the one you get just creeps into the size class. Convenience of location is good.Reviewed 19 Aug. 2022

Super long wait at Chicago Airport pickup. About 1:30. One counter for both Thrifty AND Dollar, with 2-3 clerks. Clerk's instructions about fuel prepaying and toll paying were unclear, and when I asked for her to repeat, she just said "Whatever, just take care of it". Probably just wanted to get over the huge queue and I get that, but still really bad customer service. She asked for me to write down my personal information on a boarding pass-like paper, with address, email and phone, when other companies around have a QR code for you to scan and enter these details in advance. Could be good for time saving in case of big queue ups like this was...Reviewed 31 Jul. 2022

I got overcharged than what's on my receipt and don't know why. I don't mean the deposit which was refunded. I returned it with more fuel than I started with. So this is a scam rental car company that I will never use again for the $20 overcharge. Good luck loosing a customer for $20Reviewed 15 Jul. 2022

There was a line of 100 people and only two employees working behind the counter at O'HARE location in Chicago ( meanwhile the other car rental companies next to them had 5 or 6 people working behind the counter) .. I waited in line 2 hours and 30 minutes and it was miserable because I already had a reservation at noon because I had to to to a wedding that day like 4 hours away .. A lots of nasty actitud from the people working for "thrifty" .. on top of that they FORCE me to pay an extra 30 dollars a day for my car rental otherwise I'll have to wait for an undisclosed amount of time because according to them they didn't have cars available. But after I paid the extra money the car was available . This was so disrespectfulReviewed 5 Jul. 2022
