The worst car rental place that I ever had to enduPros:When I get to OC airport, I called the 800 number provided by kayak. They told me to go downstairs because it is at the airport. I went down with my heavy luggage, there is no rental place from thrifty... After another half an hour waiting for the shuttle... When I got to the counter, they told me a completely different rate... After another 20 mins to speak to manager, they agreed to give me a slightly higher rate. When I dropped off the car, the agent was very rude, it took so long to return a rental carCons:The worst rental place from pickup to returnReviewed 8 Feb. 2016

Great service and pricing, car cleanliness could bPros:As stated in headline.Reviewed 18 Oct. 2016

Cons:The employees at the counter were focused on personal conversations rather than the line of customers waiting to be helped. Once I was told to wait for the car outside, after 15 minutes of waiting, the car had been taken to a different location. I had also purchased insurance via online reservation, and was then at the location and somehow 2 insurances ended up on my bill. Will not be coming back to Thrifty.Reviewed 24 Oct. 2015
