Avoid this branch at all costsCons:With no notice of any kind, I discovered at the checkout desk that this franchise caps mileage at 150 miles/day, and does not allow travel outside the state. I have not run across such limitations in more than a decade because it simply isn't done anymore. Because I don't know what other franchises might be allowed to operate under such non-standard rules, I will not rent again from Thrifty. This foolishness cost me $150 because I had to then get a car from another company but without a reservation.Reviewed 12 Oct. 2017

Pros:Great customer service during check in /outCons:The first car was a Nissan Altima, it had over 27,000 miles on it. The car was filthy and been wrecked on the back passenger side. The windows were filthy and the dash was coming apart. I have never in my life rented a car that had over 12,000 miles on it, it almost felt like they gave us the bottom of the barrel car because we got a good deal online. We took the car back on the second day and was given a Chevy Impala that had 18,000 miles on it, the cars they had all seemed to be worn out and to be the cheapest model car you could buy. After looking around the rental car lot at the airport Thrifty / Dollar seemed to have the worst looking cars. We are looking to book another car the last weekend of July and will not use Thrifty.Reviewed 10 Jul. 2018

Worst everPros:The car I reserved was not the one they had for me. It was smaller than what I reserved. Of course they had nothing eless available. I reserved this vehicle well in advance and you'd expect they would have been able to get the right vehicle. This nearly ruined my vacation. Luckily I went elsewhere, got exactly what I wanted and received exceptional customer service.Cons:The vehicle was not what I reserved.Reviewed 30 Jun. 2016

Pros:It was transportationCons:The car was too small, the ignition was hard to turn off and on. I never could find the lever to open the fuel tank door, so I could not return the car with a full tank. This was by far my worst rental car experience.Reviewed 7 Feb. 2017

Over the top comfort and gas mileage.Pros:This 2017 Nissan Altima provided all the comfort and luxury I wanted for the trip across the state. Fuel efficiency was fabulous..one tank to drive 515 miles....pleasant surprise.Cons:I did not appreciate the price difference between online quote and actual charges. It was explained to me by the rental agent that the website could not give an accurate price since "it did not know exact taxes and fees," for the location which really sounds really hooey to me. We are in the computer age where large volumes of data are transmitted in nanoseconds. I will not use Kayak for booking rentals again. The lack of transparency is a game changer for me.Reviewed 4 Nov. 2017
