Whatcha out for these guy!!!Cons:What a complete bunch of lies. They promised me a weekly rental at $240, but when I arrived, I was required to have an additional $400 worth of insurance. I went with Thrifty because they are well known in The US, but they are obviously not paying attention to how their Cabo oporationot is treating their customers. I had no choice and had to continue with the rental. I had my two young daughters with me and I wasn't about to drag them around the airport looking for another rental car. Then, to make it even sleezier, there is a time share company with an office there at Trifty that will pay your additional insurance charge on the car if you go sit through a two hour tours at one of their properties. I feel scammed.Reviewed 16 Oct. 2016

ScamPros:Nothing.Cons:We showed up with a reservation costing us $141. They told us we'd have to purchase insurance there(we expected this due to Mexico law) with full insurance it was going to be $650. Too much. We asked about just liability, and they told us we could but it would be a $2000 hold on our card. After arguing with them, one guy leaned over and told us he'd be willing to work it out to be $371 if we gave him $60 in cash, which was obviously for him. Totally a scam, so we took our business somewhere else. We ended up with Budget and they were totally legit!Reviewed 29 Mar. 2017

Cons:The prices offered in internet are NOT real!!!! you end up paying 3 times more. The insurance cost is excessively high! Worst experience ever! At the end we got a taxi...if you book a taxi with your hotel it will cost half the price compared to the taxis at the airport.Reviewed 8 Jul. 2016

Very rude staffPros:Very little to like.Cons:They spoke poor English, which is understandable since it is not an a predominately English-speaking area. They took an extreme amount of time to get our paperwork filled out, and we got our keys almost 45 minutes after waiting in their hot lobby (not air conditioned well). When we returned our car, they pointed out damage on the car which we are certain was not our fault. We should taken pictures of the car at a full 360 degrees. We pointed out the damage when we picked up the car, but their employee did not mark it properly on their form. When we complained about this, their employees started becoming aggressive and very confrontational. We may have slightly raised the tone of our voices to indicate our disappointment/frustration, but they took it to another level and tried to make us feel like fools. If you are smart, please make the right decision and do not rent your car from this Thirfty location. The staff displayed terrible customer service. This may look like a deal, but it is just not worth the money or the headaches.Reviewed 5 Jan. 2017

Cons:Car was tiny. It was clean and economical on gas but very small. The Agency tried to charge $2500 on my credit card and when I refused they lowered it to $500 but raised the rate by $30. I expected to pay $20/day insurance over the $3/date rental but they charged over $30/day. I know it is the Mexican rip-off.Reviewed 2 Apr. 2017

Thrifty used the opportunity of a flat tire (on their car) to gouge meCons:I rented a car from Thrifty recently in San Jose del Cabo. When I received the car, I was told that it was a brand new car and they quickly hustled me through the inspection process. While I was there, they tried extraordinarily hard to sell me on full coverage insurance. While I was driving the car on the highway (going more than 100 kph), the car experienced a flat tire (right passenger side front tire). It was extremely dangerous and I was able to cross the median and move to the frontage road to change the tire. When I returned the car, I was told that there were minor “scrapes” on the underside of the car and that the tire was damaged (although, there was no apparent visual evidence of damage to the tire). I was charged $US 85 for the scrapes and WAS ASKED TO PAY FOR THE FLAT TIRE ($US 50) !!! To say that I am surprised that I was asked to pay for a wear and tear item and then asked to pay for “scrapes” that may or may not have been there when I rented the vehicle (way up UNDER the front of the bumper) or could have happened when the tire went flat and I had to exit the highway in an umarked spot may be an understatement. I believe that Thrifty is not actually in the rental car business – but rather the insurance scam business. It is clear that the business model is to get people in with low rates, try and upgrade their insurance, and then charge them for faulty equipment all the while claiming ignorance.Reviewed 3 Jan. 2018
