Line up at the counter was long, but three attendants processed people quickly. Drop off was easy and done efficiently. I was told I would be emailed my receipt.Reviewed 14 May 2022

Car had no GPS, was higher mileage and somewhat tired. Rode well, good on fuel. Size worked out well.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:Staff was friendly when picking up the car.Cons:The "SUV" was a modest sedan with a hatch-back. Thrifty "support" is very poor, as I needed to consider a change to my reservation and they were not helpful. Additionally, it was difficult to understand the person on the phone. I would not recommend using Thrifty for car rentals.Reviewed 28 Jun. 2021

Pros:The staff was ok but your policy lies.Cons:Keep it real when it says a rule in the policy they should stick to itReviewed 5 Oct. 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Nothing. Your information was inaccurate. Was not able to take the car promised to me for not having a major credit care. Then was charged 10 dollars for penalty fee. Incredibly disappointed in customer service and buisness practices. I will never use your services again.Cons:Not charging me 10 dollars on a promise of a vehicle you couldnt provide me with.Reviewed 14 Mar. 2020

Cons:Car was inexpensive and in good shape. Drop off was easy. Had to wait s whole for an agent to come to the desk for pick up. Would rent againReviewed 26 Jun. 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Nothing.Cons:Credit checks. Why on earth do you need to do a credit check? I have thousands of $ in my bank but because my credit isn’t good enough for you I was turned away. Literally standing there with verifiable funds and turned away after I made the booking and flew across the country. I needed a car. FailReviewed 2 Feb. 2019
