Cons:Make sure cars are working properly, Make sure car company is available by phones all the time ! Roadside assistance is reachable! Reps should not be given away cars that have been reserved and change them at the last minute!Reviewed 22 Sep 2020

Pros:It was at the airport rental locationCons:It could have had a car for me. Wasn't able to get a car due to a delay in our flight and they had NO cars in their garage if it had been open when we got there.Reviewed 12 Apr 2021

Pros:Drop off clerk was friendlyCons:I had a reservation and my car was not ready. I had to wait off to the side of the counter for an hour. When I was given a car it was not cleaned. The floorboards were dirty snd the car had not been washed. Worse l, it reeked of cigarettes and pot. Had there been other cars I would have rejected it, but I was already late and the line inside was very very long. It was evident not enough cars or staff were available. I will not rent again from Thrifty and I will share my unpleasant experience on trip advisor. Additionally, the car was squealing as if the fan belt was a lot to go. Just a poor vehicle and 75% poor courtesy from with staff. It didn’t effect me, but the staff that day was yelling to the long line of customers that “if you made a reservation today, it will NOT be honored”. That seems unacceptableReviewed 21 Feb 2021

Pros:Nothing. Maybe the price but didn't get to partake in it and lost $50 in the end.Cons:The attitude of the lady helping me. My overall experience was bad. My wife and 21 month old old son took a one way trip to Atlanta, GA so she could fly for the first time ever (after 43 years). This was a decision she had made when our son was born in March of 2019. A couple weeks prior I had made the decision to cut up my credit cards, not even thinking that I may need them for any sort of car rental. The website doesn't even mention this. We successfully landed and went to get out rental from Thrifty and the lady that helped me appeared to be running the shift at the time. She asked me for my license and credit card. So I gave her my license and one of my bank cards. She then physically stepped back for some reason, as if I was going to attack her and told me she needed a credit card. As I started to discuss any other type of way for me to possibly rent the vehicle, she kept cutting me off. She was curt and non-compassionate. Horrible customer service. Absolutely no smile and did not look or act like she wanted to be there. My time in the rental area took about an hour, the fear that I would be able to get my family back home to Orlando, FL and lots of tears. Finally, someone at Budget was compassionate enough to help me. I will be sticking to budget from now on because of the individual there who saved me and my family. I will never go to Thrifty again and never recommend this place to family and friends. It's no wonder why you all are cheap in price. Human decency requires cash, and sometimes a credit card.Reviewed 23 Feb 2021

Pros:Easy pick up and drop off. The person at the desk in Atlanta was extremely helpful and kind. Thanks so much!Cons:No complaints except that the drop off location in NYC is labeled "Hertz" and does not mention Thrifty. I did not realize that there was a merger so had trouble finding it.Reviewed 24 Jun 2020

Bad customer service and lack of knowledgeCons:When I went to pick up the vehicle I was told that it didn't matter what time I returned the vehicle because I payed a daily rate. Then I payed for prepaid insurance which I told the lady at the counter and I was told they did not know what that was and still charged me for their own insurance. The vehicle smelled like an ashtray when I picked it up and when I was leaving I told the person at the gate and they said they'll make a note of it. Then when I returned they proceed to tell me there's and hourly rate and tell me that my rate has been changed to a weekly rate which doubled the price of my rental in total, then when I asked to speak to the manager she comes up and takes care of another customer who came after I was there and then proceeds to tell me she can't do anything about them changing my rate. I will never be using thirty again. Everything about their service was poor. I fly multiple times a month to Georgia and would have given them allot of business but after this experience I will take my business to enterprise or hertz.Reviewed 26 Dec 2016

Pros:They overcharged me on the return and I had to argue it 3 times.Cons:Clarify your fees are not the entirety of the fees. The end amount was near $200 for a "$40" rental. I am immensely disappointed in your service.Reviewed 11 Jan 2021
