When booking the car no mention was made that the car was at the airport. Fortunately Thrifty is owned by Herrz who took action to loan us a car in the train station. However, on return there was confusion about closing the contract resulting in us not knowing the cost of the rental.Reviewed 11 Sep. 2023

This was the worst rental car experience I've ever had.2.5 hours at the agency to pick up a car that I preordered online. Building was not air conditioned, no process followed, 2 agents with over 20 people in line, no one to bring cars or demonstrate basic use, cars just left running in the lot, no one to answer questions, wrong car was given. Never use thrifty at Philadelphia airport again!Reviewed 25 May 2023

The online booking process was horrible. The onsite agency was short staffed, rude and took 2+ hours to release a pre booked car. The site had no air conditioning and I was 30th inline on arrival. There was no one to demonstrate the car electronics and contols including GPS, radio, windshield wipers and flashers. No one told me my rental car was ready, it was left running in the parking lot for 30 minutes while I stood outside waiting for it to arrive.Reviewed 22 May 2023

We waited in line 2 hours to get to an agent. Then waited another 20 minutes to get the car. I paid for it in advance, but there was no honoring the reservations we have first. I’ve never seen anything like this- truly unreal.Reviewed 24 Apr. 2023

After confirming the rental/putting through the payment, the price was "adjusted" to add $40. When I got to pick up the car, it turns out the cost had actually doubled from $200 to $400ish, with an additional $200 charge that would be refunded. So I had to hand over 3x as much money as they said I would. Obviously, I didn't have a choice. Felt like highway robbery. Disgusting.Reviewed 9 Mar. 2023

I had no experience with Thrifty, because when I got to the airport to pick up the car that was supposedly reserved for me, there was no car. I was left stranded No thanks. Never again.Reviewed 28 Dec. 2022

I had a flat tire & agent gave me an attitude when I brought it back as instructed by the Thrifty agent when I reported it.Reviewed 12 Dec. 2022

Good vehicle. Clean and new. However, the Thrifty shuttle service needs major work. Understaffed and slow. Never saw a shuttle at pickup. Hitched a ride with a different agency and then walked to Thrifty. Also very slow to get us back to the airport after drop-off.Reviewed 22 Nov. 2022
