They did not have the vehicle or similar that I reserved. Would only provide me a lesser vehicle for the same price or I had to pay (which I didn't have a choice) for the upgrade. Felt like it was an intentional bait and switch.Reviewed 25 Jul. 2023

They did not honor the reservation made through your app. You both suck. I ended paying over $300 for a one day rental because of your error.Reviewed 24 Mar. 2022

When I arrived, there were two representatives assisting customers with six customers ahead of me. It took an hour to get through the process to then go get my car. First car smelled like prior customer had just put their cigarettes out. When I brought this to the attention of lot attendant, was directed to a second car. This car was badly scraped the entire length of the drivers side, and looked like someone had tried to pull the front license plate off. When I told attendant, I didn't want to look like I had rented a wreck, I was directed to a third car. Total process to pick up a car was 90 minutes.Reviewed 12 Jan. 2022

I didn't like the service I received. Get dropped off i go in give the lady my id and my PayPal card which you can run it as a credit or debit. She refused to run my card just because it said debit on it. When I made the reservations it said nothing about what payment they accepted not even cash. The lady pissed me off its 90 degrees outside. She didn't even bother to have a shuttle or anything. So I had to walk In the heat all the way home. I will never use Thrifty car rental ever again.Reviewed 13 Jul. 2021
