Cons:Thrifty gave us a confirmation number for an online reservation. They then refused to give out a car. While one gentleman was leaving the lot in a Thrifty rental car, 3 of us standing there were told they weren't letting any cars out due to the weather. All flights were canceled, so at a time when passengers needed cars most, Thrifty refused not even honoring my confirmed reservation.Reviewed 17 Feb. 2021

Pros:N/ACons:Our flight arrived at 11:00pm, by the time we got to the rental car location it was abandoned. There was a sign that directed customers to go to the 4th floor and when we got there, it was once again deserted. There were no numbers to call and no persons that could help us get our rental. Two other couples were there experiencing the same issue as us. This was extremely unprofessional and the last thing someone wants to deal with after a flight, especially at night. We had to find an Uber and paid over $100 so that he could take us into Austin. Will never rent a car from thrifty or Kayak ever again and I’ll advise any of my friends or family to stay away.Reviewed 10 Nov. 2020

Nice vehicle for the price!Pros:The vehicle (GMC Yukon 2019) was great and served our purpose while visiting our son in the Air Force. Loved the cooling seats during the 90 degree 90% humidity and then heated when the temp dropped to 47 our last day!Cons:The third row had NO leg room for our older kids and had to put the littlest one back there. We did not receive any direction on the vehicle usage...(how to put the seats down with the buttons, if the middle seats adjusted back and forth, how to use the touch screen or what was available through it! We had to take the time to read manuals and “play around” to figure things out ourselves. We had “requested” a Ford as we are familiar with their systems.Reviewed 21 Oct. 2018

Cons:The cars andrios auto functionality was not working properly. Thirfty should ensure that their cars are fully operational before sending them out on rentals.Reviewed 28 Dec. 2020

Cons:An absolutely miserable pickup experience. Rented a suburban to be picked up at 7am, left with a smaller suv at 9am.Reviewed 8 Jun. 2020
review fromkayak
Cons:I waited over an hour for a vehicle, there were dozens of vehicles that had not been cleaned, many were waiting for a vehicle to be cleaned so we could pick up, Billing is confusing, two different receipts neither made any sense. Cost should be clear and transparent!Reviewed 12 Nov. 2019

Pros:EverythingCons:Give people the choice of what type of gas they prefer (i.e. regular gas vs E85). Not many gas stations carry E85, almost ran out of petro.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2020
