Pros:Car was fine once we got itCons:Way overpriced, no value for money spent. TPA rental car a complete mess. Thrifty shares counter with Hertz and Dollar. Only 2 people on staff to handle multiple arrivals at 10p. Wait was 30mins in line to get processed and then another 20mins to get a car at the garage. Didn’t need to waste an hour after a long flight and crying kids. Return was no better, no staff at return just a sign to leave keys in car. Would have been more tolerable had I not paid $640 for a 4 day rental. Like I said zero value for what I paidReviewed 16 Feb. 2021

Pros:I waited in line for an hour at the Tampa airport. Every other company had no line. We received our agreement with very basic/vague directions to retrieve our car. It had been smoked in. I am done with Thrifty.Cons:Everything.Reviewed 16 Feb. 2021

Completely understaffed!Cons:I waited in line for a half hour and only moved 5 feet and there were about 20 people ahead of me and only two agents. I ended up renting from another company so can't comment on anything else. Everyone had their reservations in their hand so Thrifty knew how busy they were going to be and didn't bring in enough staffReviewed 12 Jun. 2017

Pros:Staff friendly and helpful when the blue chip pickup was mixed up and car was only half full. They took it in stride and made things right.Cons:Be aware that your loyalty membership with thrifty does not apply when booking on a third party site.Reviewed 27 Jan. 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Nothing you had nothing in place for corona and when I inquired about cancelling the agent I spoke with was rude about the contract.Cons:The whole country and travel industry has in place relief opportunities and credit vouchers..I didn’t go on this trip to Florida but was still charged for a rental and that is the worst possible customer service I have ever encountered.Reviewed 15 Aug. 2020
review fromkayak
Awesome.Pros:I was so disappointed in the deal I ended up turning the car in early by almost a week. The agent listened to what I had to say and undid everything that had been done at PBI. Final charge, including the $25 change fee, for 1 week plus 1 day was $302. Chalk one up for the consumer!Cons:N/AReviewed 28 Feb. 2018
review fromkayak
Pros:ValueCons:When we arrived there were no cars available in the lot and no attendant to be found. Many families were waiting with no order of who was to be helped next.Reviewed 27 Nov. 2018
review fromkayak
Cons:Terrible service had to wait in line for an hour and a pick up my car. , I told the clerk that I didn't want the additional coverage because I have it though State farm. I get my bill at checkout they charged me an additional $226.00 dollars.. Someone needs to be held accountable.Reviewed 8 May 2016
review fromkayak
