I've booked the convertible car (Ford Mustang or similar) from Thrifty. At the pickup location I spent 1 hour in the queue, then my rental agreement was finally done and I went to get the car. But the second manager who was supposed to give the keys - said, that there is no any convertible car available, and is not going to appear today. He proposed to get the Jeep, because 'it's the same'. After that I spent another 1 hour in investigations, and my money for booking are not yet fully returned. The questions are: 1. Why Thrifty doesn't inform its customers that the car is not available in advance, before you go to pickup it? They have all the contacts and everything. 2. Why they don't inform you at the moment of completion of the reservation agreement and payment? 3. Why they don't offer any compensation for spending 2 hours at their desk? That's a huge loss of time during one's vacation.Reviewed 15 Nov. 2022

The Thrifty line at pickup was too long and slow. We were on line for close to an hour before we got to the desk.Reviewed 3 May 2022

Awful experienceReviewed 10 Apr. 2022
review fromkayak
Had to wait over an hour in line to check in. They only had two people working and there was a very long line. When I finally spoke to a rep I was told it was going to be another hour to get my car since they did not have one in the type that I ordered. I ordered a wildcard which is basically dealers choice. After I expressed my displeasure in having to wait another hour they finally gave me a truck to rent. Unlikely to use them again. Saving a couple of bucks with them was not worth the hassle.Reviewed 9 Apr. 2022

Huge wait to get the car. Only 2 staff working. Once we got the car, we pulled out and it was defective. Had to go back and get another car. So the first part was frustrating. Once we left, car was great, and drop off was easy.Reviewed 3 Apr. 2022

review fromkayak
I loved that my reservation was honored. I was in and out and my family was comfortable. I was not happy that the vehicle was NOT cleaned. There were Cheerios everywhere. I guess the detailer did not move the seats and the smell was sweaty heat. Finally, I make it home and forgot that I left the house key on the car ring. We went straight backm maybe 45 minutes and the attendant told me that the car was gone and they did not know where it was. I was so upset, but thank God for Pierre (if I'm not mistaken) the Supervisor who got on his cart and search the floors and found my key in the car that was indeed in the building. This encounter took 1 whole hour. Other than that this would have been the perfect rental experience. Life happens. I would still re-book.Reviewed 21 Mar. 2022

Car was extremely dirty. Paid way too much compared to other sites. Was charged additional fees without being told. Put reservation under my name and wasn’t able to change to my husbands name. I do not drive in the USA. Again paid extra. Terrible customer service when I called to rectify charges. Never again!Reviewed 17 Mar. 2022

Old fashioned pressure to buy more of everything beyond needed and what was contracted. A long walk. Friendly though.Reviewed 15 Mar. 2022
review fromkayak
After being in the airport all day and being forced to wait to 2 days for our next flight we booked a rental car with thrifty. Got to the rental place the line had 15 people in it with one person at the desk. Each person took roughly 20 mins to get in. We ended up not going with thrifty and instead used Avis. It would have taken 3-5 hours to get to the front desk at thrifty had we waited. Avis was great.Reviewed 14 Mar. 2022
