Pros:Quick service and the car was clean.Cons:Have the company email drop off instructions. They had two drop off locations and I dropped at the after hours because the address I had (from google) sent me to the wrong parking garageReviewed 30 Jan. 2021

Excellent ServicePros:I booked my thrifty car rental in Honolulu through kayak online it was very quick and easy. My flight was delayed and I was worried as I was fifteen minutes late to pick up my car from the rental service but the staff were very accommodating and there was no issues. On pick up I had the most helpful staff member named Ed give me multiple suggestions of places to visit in Oahu. He was so friendly and helpful he was a joy to chat to. The car was very good and was great for gas. Only need to fill up the tank 1.5 times during two week rental and I was driving all over the island. Upon return the staff were very quick taking only a few minutes to check the car before telling me everything was in order and I was free to take their free shuttle bus to the airport. All in all an excellent experience.Cons:There was very little I didn't like about the service. The only thing which I feel could be done differently is at pick up I was offered a fuel insurance. Where if I paid $44 I could bring the car back with any level of gas. At the time I thought this was a good deal however when filling the car up from empty I found it only cost $28 for a full tank of gas. Apart from that there was nothing else I would change about the service.Reviewed 25 Nov. 2017

Cons:We did not get to go on our Hawai’i vacation because of COVID-19. Our flight was canceled. When I tried to cancel my reservation for the car I was told that Thrifty was not refunding any payments made after April 30. Spent 5 days trying to resolve this and gave up! So disappointing!Reviewed 6 Aug. 2020

Problem upon drop off with supposed damageCons:Told me to look over the car for larger than golf ball sized dents and scratches longer than 5 inches. I did so in the failing light as I took the car. When I returned it, the checker asks me about a super small dent/much smaller than 5" scratch in the back driver side quarter panel. It felt scammy to be honest. I stated not only did I not see it when I rented the vehicle, I could barely see what he was pointing out in broad daylight as I returned it. They made me file a claim, my insurance company is now involved and I'm waiting to see if Thrifty pursues it. It seems to be entirely up to Thrifty if they want to try to make me pay for something I for sure didn't do (for 42 of the 48 hrs I had the car it was parked in an indoor garage against a concrete wall on the driver's side, making it impossible for the damage to have happened while it was parked). I was involved in no accidents or scrapes or anything while driving, so it literally couldn't have happened on my watch. Just unwanted stress and did not feel taken care of or believed as the customer.Reviewed 3 Mar. 2017

Pros:I liked that the staff was friendly. I liked that the car was clean.Cons:The problem is that the hours of operation of the rental car facility was 8-4pm. My flight got delayed, so I did not arrive until 7pm that night which caused me to miss my car rental pickup. When I came back next day, they told me that the car I rented, which was any available, was not available. The only thing available was a ford mustang, which was 250 dollars more for my rental.Reviewed 28 Mar. 2021

Best rental/rental agent experience I have ever haPros:The rental agent who helped us in Honolulu was the best agent we have ever had the pleasure of working with. He was quick and efficient, friendly and even provided us a few ideas to experience more cultural events that were not touristy. He took a real vested interest in my family. As someone whose business is focused on customer success I was throughly pleased and impressed. I hope you have his name in your DB on the promotion track because that is the type of person you want as a leader in your business.Reviewed 30 Sep. 2016
