Pros:Great car, drove well, man at the counter was really nice.Cons:They didn't seem to know anything about the online booking system that I used, I ended up paying almost double because I wanted a GPS system which upgraded me to a nicer vehicle. However, I booked a Rav4 which is pretty comparable to a Chevy Esquire. I just feel like I overpaid for the upgrade.Reviewed 13 Jul. 2019

OverpricedPros:Car was clean, ran well (Toyota Camry).Cons:I only had the car 5 days and was charged the weekly rate. I was given only 1 day of insurance back when I brought it back early. On your website it doesn't mention the $30/day for insurance on top of the rental charge. I was led to believe at booking everything was included. Too expensive.Reviewed 29 Apr. 2017

Cons:the car was smaller than i expected from an SUV, but it worked out fine. also, i asked for a ski rack at time of reservation and also called thrifty the day before we went to vancouver. both times i was told that my request was recorded, but not guaranteed. so i thought there was a decent chance that i would get a ski rack since i requested it so far in advance. when we arrived at the pick up location, i was told that they do not have ski racks in that location and never have them available for customers. that was kind of weird.Reviewed 3 Apr. 2017

Dishonest experience with Thrifty car rentalCons:I booked a rate on your site for a total car rental period with all fees for just under $40. When I returned my car to Thrifty the total was $199. 52 and I filled the car full of gas. They said that they added a $35 dollar per day insurance that I did not sign up for and they would not remove this charge. I am waiting for a phone call from you to discuss a refund. 949-910-0033Reviewed 15 Jan. 2017

Crappy cars - didn't bother using them - switchedPros:The guys tried to be helpful but...Cons:The first Jeep Cherokee's 4WD service light was on, the second Jeep Patriot was old, ratty and stunk of cigarette smoke, and the last option with AWD was a Chevrolet thing. We left and went to Hertz and got a brand new clean Jeep Wrangler instead.Reviewed 3 Dec. 2016
