Check the hours carefully. Flight was delayed after take off and when we arrived, Thrifty was closed with no way to fulfill reservation.Reviewed 26 Feb. 2022

The customer service representatives were not so nice. Otherwise I was very happy with the car.Reviewed 24 Jan. 2022

They reserved my car online then they didn’t have a car when I got there and treated me like an idiot when I didn’t understand why I reserved a car and it wasn’t there. Calling me by my first name and asking”what did I expect it was the weekend” and go somewhere else.Reviewed 31 Dec. 2021

I booked my Thrifty rental car two months ahead of time. I woke up at 4 AM to commute via public transportation to JFK in order to make my scheduled 6 AM pickup time. The staff were incredibly rude to all customers and stated that they were not going to be renting out any cars until at least 7 AM. By the time 7 AM rolled around, they had allowed many customers ahead of the individuals that arrived at 6 AM. There is no seating outside of the lobby or in the lobby so customers waiting for the staff to be ready were forced to sit on the concrete outside in December. My car reeked of cigarette smoke and had not been vacuumed prior to me being "handed" the keys. In fact, I was told to go wait at the end of the sidewalk for someone to hand me the keys but no one arrived so I went searching myself in the parking lot to find the car. I cross-referenced my receipt and the license plate then waited in the car just in case someone was coming to get me. No one did so I left. My only complaint after driving my dirty and smelly car off the lot was that the passenger's side air controls had gotten so hot at some point prior to me renting it. I could not figure out how to manipulate the air for my husband as the knob had melted off and fallen behind the vent. I extended my rental by a week so I have yet to do the dropoff portion but I am crossing my fingers that it is not as difficult as the pickup.Reviewed 29 Dec. 2021

At the Thrifty pickup at JFK, there was only one worker on duty in the car service area. That meant that all three parties in line had to wait while he washed, sanitized and delivered one car, then went back to service the next.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2021

Over 90 minute wait for a car? Who has ever heard of that? Not the line. The wait for the car after the line.Reviewed 16 Nov. 2021

Long wait to pick up Pre-paid rental car, and the first 2 cars assigned to me were then taken back as I was finally preparing to drive off the lot, due to deferred maintenance issues. Also, I was kept On hold for over an hour and then disconnected when calling for emergency roadside assistance.Reviewed 24 Aug. 2021
review fromkayak
About a million hidden fees and no phone number in existence to get ahold of the specific branch. Having to pay $23 for EZ Pass every SINGLE day I had the car when I used it 2 days or $15 EVERY time you go through a toll PLUS the toll? This is the literal definition of highway robbery. Skip Thrifty particularly from the airport if you don’t have to pick up there. What a giant waste of time and money. Plus the “deep clean” on the car left a used mask between the seats and what looked like sweat stains in the back. So glad that’s an extra charge!Reviewed 23 Aug. 2021
