2 hour wait in line for pickup. Really terrible pickup experienceReviewed 7 Aug. 2022

It took several hours to pick up the car. Terrible pick up experience.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2022
review fromkayak
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 even though I could not pick up the car. Shameless. Horrible. I've been emailing with 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

Better way to adjust the height position on the driver side seat. Seat was too low for me, seat also not wide enough. My tight leg kept cramping.Reviewed 26 Jun. 2022

I picked up late because flight was delayed 3 times. I was so grateful they hadn't closed for the evening. The part that bothered me was they give you a parking spot to go pick up your car. Nobody walks the vehicle with you to check for damage. You just get in and drive. It's not so much that it wasn't good just weird. The vehicle ran well the drop off was perfect. So overall a great experience.Reviewed 3 Jun. 2022

The car wasn’t ready when we arrived. It was an old car. And we were charged a lot of extras without realizing itReviewed 1 May 2022
review fromkayak
The line at the Thrifty rental counter at the SFO rental car facility was absurd - over 50 people. After waiting for nearly 30 minutes, the same three customers were at the windows as when I stepped into line. I abandoned Thrifty and reserved a car through another agency. When I tried to cancel my Thrifty reservation through Kayak or the Thrifty website, all I received were error messages. I ultimately had to call Thrifty (a 20 minute experience) just to cancel my reservation.Reviewed 27 Apr. 2022
