Cons:A 1/2 full soda bottle, empty bag from taco bell, gummy worms, and miscellaneous trash was in this vehicle. Windshield wiper blades needed replaced. Upholstery was filthy.Reviewed 26 May 2016

Cons:When I arrived at the counter I was offered a foreign make. I stated that I needed an American brand for this trip. I was offered a Ford Fusion, which was the same size (Full Size) for an additional $10 per day. When asked if that was okay, I said no. After 5+ minutes of looking for other vehicles I was given that car for the same price. When I booked the rental, it stated Ford Fusion or similar. I understand how the game works, but why try to get $10 more per day and then keep me waiting there when that's the class i leased?Reviewed 16 Dec. 2018

Pros:The staff was unfriendly not helpful and kinda terrible . I didnt like anything about this experience and 10/10 do not recommendCons:They could have been more helpful. I was $10.00 short on a hidden deposit I was unaware of until my arrival. Therefore I had to call my grandmother so she could come use her card. Since it was a different card they charged me an extra 50 dollars because she was a driver. Obviously she wasn't a driver she was just helping me out. They didnt care about the dilemma and made no attempt to help me out. The process that should have been 5 mins took an extra hour l after already being on the plane for 8 hours. The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful through the whole process.Reviewed 17 Aug. 2020

Complete failure - will never use againCons:After flying my family of six from Dallas to Columbus for a funeral, I reserved a minivan with Thrifty to transport us around the city. After incurring the expense of an Uber transport to the airport location, I arrived at the Thrifty desk at the 2 pm scheduled pickup time only to be informed they did not have a minivan. In utter disbelief, I asked the agent how that could be and he offered no explanation; only that he had no minivan. He offered a full-size vehicle that was insufficient for my family's need. He said in an hour or two they MAY have a van available. As the memorial service was at 4 pm, that was not an acceptable option. Seeing how they overbook their vehicles and having experienced such calloused indifference, I will never consider using Thrifty again and will relate my experience to as many other people as I can.Reviewed 21 Jan. 2018
