Never use Thrifty againCons:They never told me there was an option to do a one way rental meaning pick up at point A and drop off at point B regardless of having called and spoken to 4 people including when I picked it up and dropped it off. The man told me when I picked up that there would be a fee to take the car from Fresno, ca and drop off in Phoenix, az well that fee turned out to be $1,600. Then when I dropped the car off they never said anything about making that charge to my credit card, no signature, no pin, nothing! Just hands me the receipt and said "that's a lot of money" uh yea!!! It's a lot of money, apparently not enough to mention to the customer though. Worst service ever. After calling to try and sort out the charge I was hung up on twice and kept on hold for more than an hour total.Reviewed 9 Feb. 2016

Pros:The reservation process was easy. The SUV was clean, and pick up was fast and easy. The employees at the counter inside the airport were friendly and expedient. I did have to walk back inside the airport to the desk to return it, but other than that, the return process was smooth, quick, and friendly.Cons:The reservation and service was great, though the price was a bit steep. It was a last-minute reservation; however, so that is just how it is. I didn't like some of the features of the SUV. The high beams flickered on and off at will while we were navigating curvy mountain roads in the dark. I did NOT enjoy this. The suspension wasn't as smooth, nor the handling as tight as the Jeep Cherokee we rented the following weekend from a different company.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2020

Horrible service from bot Kayak and Thrifty Car RentalPros:Nothing!Cons:When I made my arrangements online, it was explained that I could use my debit card to make the reservations; deposit and fees due. All i had with me was a Visa debit card. When I arrived to pick-up my card, I was denied my rental car and I was told that they did not accept Visa debit cards. This is ludicrous! I called and spoke with a Thrift rep who said that i could use my debit card as long as it had the Visa logo and was not just a debit card. What a HORRIBLE experience to be stranded at a location and be unable to pick up your PRE-PAID rental car!!!!Reviewed 4 Jun. 2018

Pros:The car was washed and clean.Cons:Pick up was not good. I was told that I couldn't use my company credit card that I used to book the reservation online because my first name on the card was different than my driver's license (it is my nickname on the credit card). This was the first time in 20 years it has ever been a problem and the rep asked me if it was the first time I rented from Thrifty because this is how the system works. I didn't really appreciate that as an answer. She then says when I come back she can switch the credit cards. I asked her why she didn't lead with that at the beginning of the conversation versus quoting me company policy. Another concern was insurance coverage (company versus personal based on the credit card on file). The drop off was a little better. The line was really long and nowhere does it say you have to stay in line to drop off. Luckily I asked because I was in a hurry (and didn't have to wait in line). The issue here was switching the credit cards which would require me to wait in line. The rep said to write my email down and they would send the final receipt later in the day. I did not receive the email as promised. I called two days later and finally received the second part of the bill (first part on my company credit card, second part on my personal credit card). The experience with Thrifty was OK at best. I'll likely choose a different rental car company in the future. Thank you.Reviewed 17 Feb. 2020
