Didn’t like anything. The lady at the counter was rude, my reservation was for 11am but I didn’t get the car until 1:19pm. The restrooms were out of service so I couldn’t even use the bathroom and they gave me a minivan that didn’t even have Bluetooth.Reviewed 17 Mar. 2022

Car ordered was not available, waited 30 minutes for a different class of car. No accommodation for the change other than $30 off the next rental, as if there will be one.Reviewed 8 Mar. 2022

We booked a car two weeks in advance but when we arrived with our group of 12 people, they had no car for us. When canceling the car on kayak to get our money back, we had to call multiple times and fight for them to return our money even though they didn’t have a car for us. We will not be booking through kayak again but will book directly through the rental car website.Reviewed 24 Feb. 2022

No itemized full receipt. Car not on lot when pre-registered time. They were deceptive in adding on the insurance cost when I preselected no extra insurance.Reviewed 22 Feb. 2022

I flew to Houston and ended up at Intercontinental instead of Hobby. When I went to the Thrifty counter I was told I was not in the system because I rented through Kayak / Priceline. My choices were, rent a car where I was or try to find a way to Hobby and rent the car I had reserved. I was in a hurry and figured i could get a refund from Kayak / Priceline once I explained my issue. I WAS WRONG. Called the number on my paperwork and after being on hold for almost 15 minutes was told no refund, no changes. NEVER AGAIN will I use Kayak or Priceline....Reviewed 21 Jan. 2022

Our battery died and we had to wait an hour in the cold for someone to show up, and the mechanic who did told us the battery in the car was old and not good and that we’d be “lucky” if we made it to our destination without another issue. It was so scary!Reviewed 3 Jan. 2022

I love the staff at this facility... caring, fun and professional! All went smoothly and pleasantly from start to finish. Josephine was especially wonderful!Reviewed 17 Dec. 2021

I asked for just the basic insurance but was charged for an upgraded insurance. I was stressed trying to get home after my flight was canceled and didn't catch the error until I received my final receipt. I'll know to pay better attention in the future!Reviewed 15 Sep. 2021

Thrifty ran out of cars. They informed us who were waiting in line for 20+ min. They wanted to put me on a waiting list for hours. But I had a work meeting to attend so I had to catch an Uber. Now I need to call kayak and priceline to get a refund.Reviewed 9 Aug. 2021

Pros:While we had to wait an hour for the car, the staff did their very best in a situation they could not control. They gave the cars out as quickly as they came in. They were friendly and upbeatCons:It would have been nice if cars had been readily available. However, it appears the travel world is opening up again and it may take some time to adjust. Nashville airport didn't have enough cold drinks to keep up with the demand of folks travelling. We are getting back to the new normal. Everyone was patientReviewed 15 Jun. 2021

Cons:Rates. They charge for every little details. Tolls charges were sky high. Never again!Reviewed 10 Jun. 2021
