Cons:It would great if someone was there to provide directionsReviewed 20 Feb. 2021

Pros:The car.Cons:The attendant at the pickup site was very helpful within his limitations. He spent an inordinate amount of time calling the back office(from what I believe to be his personal cell phone) to get a confirmation code. The process took close to half an hour. My reservation was prepaid with the tax portion being the only residual so I do not recognize the need for that much time being taken to process this transaction. It seemed that there was no real advance preparation of the rental prior to my arrival. I do not fault the attendant, I fault the back office support. I expected better service.Reviewed 18 Nov. 2019

Thrifty Car Rental Loses SteamPros:1) Comfortable minivan 2) Clean carCons:1) Pick-up took 45 minutes, starting with when we first started speaking with the reception person at Newark Airport. The Thrifty computer system shut down after 20 minutes of "registering," at which point we had to start all over again. 2) "Maintenance Required" light came on after 30 minutes in the car 3) We rented the EZ-Pass toll badge, but the badge only worked on half of the tolls that we drove through. When I mentioned this to the employee at the drop off location, they should Thrifty would pay for all the tolls and tickets that were a result of the device not functioning. I'm skeptical the tickets will be paid by Thrifty, and assume I will soon be receiving multiple, large $ tickets as a result of the device not working.Reviewed 14 Jun. 2018

Pros:The line to pick up was very long. Then the only card I had was my debit cards. Even though I had a photo of my Mastercard they said they could not use it so I did not get to rent a car. Budget will take debit cards so I thought I would use Budget again, They were booked, which is why my son rented a car for me at Thrifty online using his card. Live and learn.Cons:The pick up line at the airport was very long. Thrifty could take debit cards,Reviewed 9 Mar. 2021

Driving away customersPros:The car was great, drove really well.Cons:There were lots of hidden fees and the attitude of the counter staff at Thrifty was extremely unfriendly. They charge $14 a day for a second driver, which is outrageous. They insisted we had to bring a receipt from filling up the tank at the end, otherwise they'd charge us $10 a gallon even though the tank was full. If we brought it back early, they'd charge us another fee. i'd never rent from Thrifty again. You'd think in this day of competition from services like Getaround and Uber, a car rental service would realize they want to attract customers, not repel them. But the counter staff couldn't care less. They kept saying its corporate policy. They clearly didn't care if we rented or not.Reviewed 28 Apr. 2016

Tried to use scare tactics to upsale mePros:Basic daily rate- but beware upselling unscrupulous upselling attempts at counter!!Cons:I purchased insurance on web for the rental period because I read that although the credit card covers some damage the rental car companies can still charge you for the time the car is out for repairs. The Thrifty employee said that my rental insurance was no good and that I needed theirs. She also feed me a line about if I didn’t pre-purchase gas I needed to show them a receipt of gas purchase within 10 miles of airport which turned out to be not true! Further, she said I needed to purchase ezpass because some toll stations no longer accepted cadh or credit cards- also not generally true. Buyer beware!!!Reviewed 18 Dec. 2017

Know your reservation detailsPros:Great customer service, clean car.Cons:We reserved a "specialty car" that was supposed to be similar to a small crossover. (This was a business trip where I sent my employees). Our manager didn't have the reservation so that part was her fault...however, they said we reserved a compact car, which will not fit the 4 people we had with luggage; Soooo, they forced them into a minivan at a $75/day up charge. Since our employee dropped the ball in the first place and assumed I was cheap, we disputed the up charges and Thrifty was kind enough to refund the upgrade fees understand and see the original booking was in fact, specialty.Reviewed 7 Jun. 2017
