1 person at the dollar/thrifty counter for 20 people in line. After travelling all day and then having to tale an airport shuttle.to a.counter who's line is out the door with only one person working is highly disappointing. The wait to move was awful. I have pictures and a video to share of this absolutely pathetic situationReviewed 7 Dec. 2023

The price was good, the car was fine. However, the line to pick up the car was long. More than 12 people in line and only two representatives on a Friday? The price makes up for that delay, so I would use Thrifty again in the future.Reviewed 27 Nov. 2023

Not accommodating in the least.Reviewed 11 Oct. 2023

Terrible. There was an incident at pickup that made me feel unsafe and was exacerbated by the Thrifty staff who stated “you’re all here for the $15 dollar rental right?” “You can go to the other rental places next door.” Implying that we should wait since we were getting a low price. There is a longer narrative but the Thrifty remarks continued an escalating discussion between two other renters and there were threats of violence by one of the renters. At minimum Thrifty staff should have called facility security. I abandoned my rental at this point and left.Reviewed 5 Oct. 2023
