The clerk that assisted my brother and I wasn’t very friendly. There was a long line that morning and he appeared disgruntled during our transaction. I selected the manager’s choice when I made the reservation which he mentioned at the counter. I explained I needed a small vehicle if available for local driving. He handed the contract over which specified the estimated charges, including deposit, and the vehicle model and space number. The vehicle was in good condition. There were no other problems until I returned the car where no one was available to check in the vehicle and I was told to just leave the keys and I’d be emailed a receipt. So I left. The problem was when I got the emailed receipt. I was charged a higher amount that the original contracted stated plus an additional hour. I immediately called customer service which is where it got worse. The rep stated I was charged a different rate because I left with a different car. I explained I never had a different car, I selected managers’s choice and I was given a mid-size vehicle, per the clerk. He insisted that was the reason which I politely negated. I specified the rates and total amount on my contract because he still seemed confused. I also asked why I was charged an additional hour if I dropped the car off on time. He proceeded to review everything until he concluded a mistake was made and that I’d be getting a refund for the difference. I asked for email confirmation and he said he couldn’t provide that, that I’d have to review my receipt online in 24-48 hours to see the change. The entire process felt like I was an inconvenience rather than trying to resolve the inconvenience of a mistake made on Thrifty’s behalf. I don’t trust anything was handled properly and that I’ll have to call back to correct it. My brother and I decided never to rent from Thrifty again.Reviewed 3 Oct. 2023

Airport pickup took an HOUR. Every other rental company had minimal to no lines but the thrifty/dollar rental desk had a super long, slow line. We were late to our event because of it. If I were doing again I would pay a little more to rent from another company at the Salt Lake airport. Once we actually got the car everything was fine.Reviewed 3 Oct. 2023

Front desk staff were not friendly, had expressions on their faces like it was the last place on earth they wanted to be, no smiles. Upon return, no staff was there to check the car in. I had to go find another girl around the corner who was surprised the attendant wasn’t there to check us in. She was very pleasant and asked if an email receipt was acceptable, smiled, said everything would be fine, asked if we were sure we had all our belongings. She was the one bright spot. Car was fine.Reviewed 2 Oct. 2023

I rented through a third party, which was not clearly marked. Our flight was cancelled due to torrential rains in New York City. We had to cancel our trip. Nevertheless, charged us the full amount. No recourse through Thrifty. I will think twice before using Kayak again,Reviewed 2 Oct. 2023

Waited over 1.5 hours at the desk in the airport to get the car. The desk clerk was downright ignorant and rude to me. I was charged an addition $366 (US) due to unknown / hidden costs not explained on Kayak website. Then waited an addition 2.25 hours in the parking garage to get a vehicle. It was hot, late at night (2:45 am) and the garage had cockroaches. The company’s YOUNG parking garage clerk was delivering the message “there’s no cars available” when it should have been a manager. I stood in line with approximately 10-12 other groups/families that night who were also frustrated, angry, over heated and extremely tired/exhausted from travelling and waiting on Thrifty service for their vehicle. I will never rent from Thrifty car rental again and I will be weary of ever booking through Kayak again in the future. I wasn’t expecting to pay double the advertised cost.Reviewed 2 Oct. 2023

review frommomondo-kyk-wl
The wait time at Dublin Airport is ridiculous. The staff push you to upgrade services, like adding unnecessary additional insurance, and to pay more for a car with an automatic. They also said they had photographed the damage on the car, but had not photographed all damage, I insisted they photograph the car completely.Reviewed 2 Oct. 2023
