They were great! We ended up having to extend our rental by one day and talked with customer service and was done within a few minutes. Wish kayak showed the price of the rental with the taxes included.Reviewed 14 Jan. 2024

The pickup was really far away from the city center, and it was difficult to access walking. Everything else was great, fast and we definitely got our money's worthReviewed 7 Jan. 2024

review fromkayak
I wish I would have gotten more information from the person I picked up the car from. I'm not upset that I got charged to cleaning fee, I'm upset that it wasn't explained to me in the first place especially when I told her I was riding with the dog.Reviewed 2 Dec. 2023

Friendly staff and easy after hours drop off.Reviewed 21 Nov. 2023
review fromkayak
Had a windshield crack the first day (due to a chip impact certainly done during previous rental) and my car was changed without problem. Excellent support and I recommend taking the optional assistance.Reviewed 22 Oct. 2023
review fromkayak
They oversold their cars and had none available when my flight landed despite my having prepaid for the rental more than 24 hours in advance. I waited for more than an hour and was finally told my only options were to wait another one to three hours to see if a car was returned (something they could not guarantee), take a $70 Uber to my hotel and come back to the airport the following day to pick up a car, or pay an additional $120+ for a higher class vehicle that they had promised to someone else. The man at the counter was rude, disrespectful and unhelpful. What a horrible experience.Reviewed 15 Oct. 2023
review fromkayak
We had a prepaid, confirmed car rented. They did not have a car for us. They refused to provide us compensation or another car. Very little in the way of explanation, and no apology. They didn’t even want to give us a refund on the spot. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Put our entire vacation in jeopardy. Never again.Reviewed 16 Jun. 2023
review fromkayak
Pros:Staff was friendly, and got a great rate by not renting from the airport. Drop off was easy.Cons:The pickup/drop off location left something to be desired. 6th floor of a dark, old, parking garage that wasn’t especially well-lit. The main entrance was closed due to COVID and we had to use the back door to the elevator lobby. I could see someone, such as a young female alone, feeling quite uneasy about the location.Reviewed 30 May 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:We were upgraded to a larger car at a decent price which we very much appreciated as we were traveling in a group. Staff at check in and check out were very friendly and helpful.Cons:We were given a car that made a terrible grinding noise when the brakes were applied. It was very worrisome given that we were driving through mountainous regions and the terrain was very steep. We tried getting ahold of Thrifty for 3 days to complain about the car, sometimes waiting on hold for an hour and a half at a time, before we were finally able to reach a representative who could help us. During those 3 days, we estimated that we spent collectively 7-8 hours on hold trying to reach someone who could help. It was a non-stop barrage of automated systems, transfers and holds. Very frustrating to deal with when you are on vacation. They ended up bringing us a new car which was much appreciated but we would have preferred not to waste so much time on our trip worrying about whether the brakes in our rental were going to give out.Reviewed 25 May 2021
