On arrival at SFO we had to queue for 90 minutes to actually get to speak to someone about picking up our pre-booked car, once we got to give our details we were then told we would have to wait 1hour to get the car! As it happens it was only 20 minutes. They were clearly under staffed and the staff that were there were under great pressure.Reviewed 17 Sep. 2022

absolutely catastrophic! I NEVER had the car. The company told me that they would not have a car available until 4 hours and that they would call me. I never had a call. I had lost my preservations for my activities that day. It's a shame. To avoid absolutely! And I will not fail to write it everywhere on the net.Reviewed 17 Sep. 2022

Whilst drop off was efficient and simple, pick up took over an hour as counter staff tried to upsell every customer. I was only 3rd in line so I pity those that were 20 places behind me. I did not appreciate the tone of the service agent who was trying to convince me to pre-pay petrol, toll passes (which I did not need despite him telling me I did), insure, car upgrades and extra drivers. It set a poor tone for the experienceReviewed 31 Aug. 2022

The car was excellent, no complaints, the staff were friendly and the process was really quite straight forward so perhaps I’m being a bit harsh. But the queue to pick the car up took 2.5hours, which was just ridiculous. The guidance before arriving made it clear we needed to be there at a specific time, so the onus was on us, yet when we did, it took so long to be seen and there clearly wasn’t enough staff on the desks. The main fella organising was really pleasant and had to deal with a number of irate customers who had expected it to take a reasonable amount or time. We saw him again later and he was still doing a great job. In whole, it’s a great service, but they need to sort out staffing.Reviewed 22 Aug. 2022

The pick up process was horrible. Even with a reservation I waited for 3 hours in a line of 50+ people after a long travel day to get my car. We weren’t informed as to why there was such a wait. Counter staff were not friendly or apologetic about the wait. I will not be renting directly from the SFO airport again. The car itself was great and drop off was exponentially more pleasant and quick.Reviewed 3 Aug. 2022

I was not able to pick up a rental at Thrifty. The counter was closed (at 10pm) yet my reservation was for 10pm. I was charged for this reservation (through rentalcars.com) even though I could not pick up the car. Shameless. Horrible. I've been emailing with rentalcars.com and they stand by their no refunds etc. But there was no service. Horrible.Reviewed 19 Jul. 2022

It will be great if a daily payment is accepted because all at once is a bit pricey for a month maybe 50-75 bucks a day instead of 3000 once you knowReviewed 2 Jul. 2022
