Mid size cars (Skoda Fabia not Astra)Pros:I rent an Astra with ar conditioning. Thrifity gave me a Skoda Fabia without AC. At the desk rental the attendant has confirmed that the car size for this rental is Fabia and there was no AC. The car got a flat tyre during the trip.Cons:Car type is not Astra as advertised, is a Skoda Fabia, very short on accessories.Reviewed 25 Mar 2017

THRIFTY CAR RENTAL REFUSED TO HONOUR RENTAL AGREEMPros:THRIFTY are attempting to charge Kayak customers SEVERAL TIMES THE CAR RENTAL CHARGE PLUS FIVE THOUSAND CHARGE ON CREDIT CARD. Is this due to THRIFTY loss of The RyanAir business in recent months? There appears to be a Link.Cons:THRIFTY CAR RENTAL REFUSED TO HONOUR RENTAL AGREEMENT AFTER been PAID almost 150 EURO for an eight day rental. When I Arrived at the Rental counter THRIFTY first attempted to give a small car, INSTEAD OF THE RESERVED STANDARD SIZE VEHICLE. Then THRIFTY tried to charge an ADDITIONAL insurance 420Euro Four Hundred and Twenty Euro PLUS AN ADDITIONAL FIVE THOUSAND EURO ON MY CREDIT CARD!!! THRIFTY ARE UNPROFESSIONAL. THRIFTY ACCORDING TO THRIFTY COUNTER STAFF IN DUBLIN Airport have recently lost the Business of Car Rental to Tourists attached to the RYANAIR APP. There appears to be a direct Con nection between this loss And THRIFTY CAR RENTAL ATTEMPTS to have New Kayak Customers pay MANY TIMES OVER THE ADVERTISED CAR RENTAL COST. This is I believe a FRAUDReviewed 23 Feb 2016

A huge messPros:Well, we had a car.Cons:hertz/Dollar/Thrifty are all together in Ireland. We rented through Thrify and had a massive wait. The Hertz line went far more quickly. It was extremely disorganized. The person helping us couldn't find the key to our car. There was such a backlog of people trying to get cars that it seemed that the employees were hoarding keys. Our insurance didn't cover the car in Ireland, and our credit card didn't either. The cost of full insurance was more than that of the rental. The car was a mess. One of the rims was held on by a tie, and an attachment came off. There were a million scrapes on the car. We were too tired getting off the plane to inspect the car, so the joke every time the light hit the car differently and showed new damage was "at least we have full insurance."Reviewed 27 Aug 2017

Pros:The drop off was very efficientCons:It took quite a few minutes at pick up; not sure if they weren't expecting as many customers at that time or just didn't have enough staff. Took about 30 mins to get our car.Reviewed 28 Sep 2016

Pros:Courtesy. Cost of rental which I believe was competitive. Also the drop off at terminal 2 was a godsend. rather than the quite impossible return off the M50Cons:Being oblivious of the very high cost of the GPS - which was never used.Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

Cons:Quality of car was very mediocre and the incredibly expensive insurance required on the car made the rental 4X more expensive than the rate quoted on the original reservation. I either bought the insurance, or had 5000 euro debited against my card. Extortion.Reviewed 4 Dec 2015

Had to cancel because they didn't have the vehicleCons:We had to cancel upon our arrival because they didn't have the vehicle we needed and reserved. We had to find another car rental option on the spot which was challenging. We are very disappointed in this entire experience. We will not use Kayak or Thrifty again. The site can't be trusted traveling internationally.Reviewed 28 Jun 2016
