Airport pickup took an HOUR. Every other rental company had minimal to no lines but the thrifty/dollar rental desk had a super long, slow line. We were late to our event because of it. If I were doing again I would pay a little more to rent from another company at the Salt Lake airport. Once we actually got the car everything was fine.Reviewed 3 Oct. 2023

Cons:Great, simple, fast, service ion a very nice new car.Reviewed 26 May 2021

Pros:The pickup at Salt Lake City airport had 1 attendant for 30 people, then the manager on duty arrived and helped. The attendants did the best they could with the crowd they had to manage.Cons:We had potential safety issues with our car when 4 and a half hours away from a rental office. We repeatedly were disconnected from service agents on the phone, and NO FOLLOWUP when this happened. Had to spend several hours on hold with NO resolution and, I repeat, NO FOLLOWUP. The safety issue turned out to be OK, but Thrifty was not interested in the least to help us ensure our safety was assured and our vacation plans not totally upended.Reviewed 5 May 2021

Cons:I was in line for over 1 hour to pick up the car in SLC.....unsatisfactory! Everyone in line had reservations, so not sure how "manning the booth" during this period was not better predicted. If I hadn't prepaid, I would have moved over to another vendor. Agents did their best to keep things moving and were courteous. I appreciate the gesture of an upgrade, but didn't really need it.Reviewed 27 Apr. 2021

Pros:The pick-up process was awful and very poorly managed, but the car was clean and the drop-off was convenient.Cons:I waited in line for over an hour and a half to pick up my car, causing me to miss an activity on the first day of my trip. There was one person servicing a line of 30+ people until a second person (the manager) finally showed up to help once the line looked like it was close to 50 people. She was unapologetic for the wait and cited the fact that they are the cheapest as the justification for being severely understaffed to manage the number of reservations for that day/time. The counter itself looked like it was meant to accommodate at least 6 agents. After the long wait, when I finally got to the counter, they didn't have the type of car (mid-class) I had reserved for myself. While their prices are competitive I'm not sure I would book with them again in this location.Reviewed 27 Apr. 2021

Pros:Understaffed. Not helpful. Slow. This company undercut all the other competitors and had 30 people standing in the line for a car with only one person processing customers. the rest of the rental car lines had no people. We waited over 2 hours in line for our car and was late for our event. Will never go with Thrifty ever again.Cons:DO NOT USE THRIFTY.Reviewed 13 Apr. 2021

Pros:Fast drop offCons:False marketing of premium SUV. Nicer SUVs were in a class below. $300+ Extra fees charged at the airport. Bait and switch.Reviewed 12 Apr. 2021

review fromkayak
Pros:The pick up at the SLC airport was horrible as I had to wait in line for over an hour to pick up the car. There was only 1 staff member for Thrifty and on 1 staff member for Dollar which made the entire process VERY slow. On the other hand the drop off at LAX was VERY easy/excellent, and a service representative came right over and checked me and the car out.Cons:There could have been more service representatives at the rental counter to make it so that so many people did not have to wait over an hour to pick up their car. Everyone was complaining regarding the lack of service representatives at the rental counter.Reviewed 26 Mar. 2021

Pros:Staff helpful.Reviewed 24 Mar. 2021
review fromkayak
Cons:Rip off. Returned the car 5 days early and they charged me $3,600 extra. Supposedly in the contract. So they have the car to rent out earlier to rent to others (at the same location) and charge me more. Ridiculous. Also the SLC rep misrepresented the lDW. Never using thrifty againReviewed 20 Mar. 2021
review fromkayak
Cons:Huge line at airport and only one person working who was in no hurry. I waited longer in line than my flight was. Car was dirty. Obviously not even cleaned out .Reviewed 3 Mar. 2021
