Pros:I had a great experience. My representative was attentive, detail-oriented, possessed a positive and friendly attitude. Carol made my experience at Thrifty/Dollarz an enjoyable one. I was in and out....just how like it and I would definitely use Thrifty/Dollar rental again.Reviewed 1 Feb. 2021
review frommomondo-kyk-wl
Pros:I was able to get checked in and out very quickly.Cons:The service rep seemed to be agitated and irritated. It was apparent he was in a bad mood and the energy carried over into my experience. I noticed there was a small crack on the right of the car the following morning. I would have preferred there to be a check out area where the customer can review the car prior to taking off the lot. I dropped the ball because I neglected to do my due diligence prior to leaving the lot, but if there was a dedicated area where this can be done that could save time and money.Reviewed 15 Feb. 2021

reviewPros:ran great. nice ride from Philly to NY. Nice friendly service in Philly.Cons:Car was a little beat up when we got it. Missing a hub cap and scratches on the side.Reviewed 22 Feb. 2018

Cons:Long line for pick up, no social distancing. Not enough staff to take care of customers and not enough cars. It seemed very disorganized. Some of the staff were not very friendly. Shuttle service back to the airport upon return was even more of a disaster, the driver didn’t even attempt to help as I struggled with my bags. He kept forgetting the airline to drop me off. The car had engine oil change light on from when I picked it up. Was not impressed by any part of the service .Reviewed 14 Oct. 2020

Worst rental service I ever received in the past 3Pros:Not much to be happy with the service other than I guess a speedy return process with no added extras added on the bill.Cons:Originally when I arrived in Philly there was no shuttle service which is necessary as they are offsite. Luckily a friendly Budget Rent-a-car shuttle driver that passed by 3 times saw me still waiting about a hour decided to help me out and get me to the location. Then the location was locked up by that time I got there after waiting over an hour mind you. I was standing in the proper #2 Rental Shuttle area as I had seen many other rental company shuttles stop there and I called the 800 number several times to confirm. The manager was about to leave when he happened to notice me at the front doors and got me the car. He said I must have been in the wrong area and that "he never gets out of there on time." Not the best thing to hear when you are traveling on business and still have another hour drive ahead. I used the rental car sparingly as well despite a strong lemon smell in the car masking what seemed to be vomit. I have been traveling for work all over the US for the past 3-4 years and this is the worst service I received since that time.Reviewed 22 Mar. 2017

Pros:Sharon mat the PHL location was very helpful.Cons:at the PHL airport there is not a "Thrifty" sigh to notify returning customers where the return lot is. This almost caused me to miss a flight. You absolutely need a SIGHReviewed 15 Oct. 2020

Pros:THIS IS THE WORST CAR RENTAL PLACE EVER!!! DO NOT USE!! Customer service is horrible. People are not friendly. And by the end of it, I found that there was a charge on my bill that I didn't ask for - dishonest business! STOP RIGHT NOW AND DON'T EVEN CONSIDER USING THRIFTY/DOLLAR!Cons:THIS IS THE WORST CAR RENTAL PLACE EVER!!! DO NOT USE!! Customer service is horrible. People are not friendly.

Pros:The staff was very helpful.Cons:When I booked the car online I prepaid for the car rental. Then when I picked up the car I was charged an additional $85 for taxes and fees. This would have been nice to know when I was making the reservation.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2020
