hidden chargesPros:The car was new clean well equipped and very comfortableCons:When I returned the car they added a $4.99 per day trip saver fee. I h ad a flat tire and called Thrifty and Joe told me to call AAA. I had to find an exact match of the tire or pay for the tire and pay again to replace it on return. I finally found someone who had a match for the tire over 30 miles away while driving on a donut. I lost a day of traveling time and had an extremely hard time finding a hotel as it was Paris Island Marine Boot Camp Training Graduation weekend. I finally found a room at Country Inn and Suites in Beaufort S.C. (the management there gave us a room with little water pressure but it beat sleeping in the car because we couldn't drive on the spare Thank Goodness for them) So I ask what is the $4.99 per day Trip saver fee when I am told to call my own triple AAA.Reviewed 14 Mar 2017

Bait and switchCons:Rate advertised when booked was special, "compact" - to be a vehicle "compact or larger" to be determined upon arrival. Upon check-in attendent said that rate was for whichever vehicle they have the most of, which in this case was 12-passenger vans. Driving a 12 passenger van was a rediculous option for my purpose, so I asked for a compact vehicle. She said they had none. The only other viable vehicle available was a luxury, which they said they would discount. Cost ended up being $310 instead of booked rate of $120. I'm very unhappy and diasappointed. Also after getting vehicle I smelled, and noticed marijuana crumbs on center console storage area.Reviewed 17 Oct 2017

Happy with ThriftyPros:The car was ready on time and the staff person completed all the paperwork quickly. The car was nicer than expected. They didn't have the class of car that we reserved so they gave us a free upgrade. We thought we were going to get something like a Toyota Corolla but they gave us a Honda Accord instead.Reviewed 3 Dec 2016

Car choice was not as expected.Pros:The car that I ended up receiving - a Ford Mustang - was excellent, just not what I expected and costing much more than promised. The woman at the counter for both pickup and drop off was very friendly.Cons:My understanding of the offer we booked was that we would have whatever car they had the most of on hand, expecting a compact or similar. Instead we were offered a 12 passenger van as the only option for the price promised. This does not seem like a reasonable option for a couple on a brief visit to upstate New York. It also would have been ridiculous for us to drive in a funeral processional in a 12-passenger van, but that's neither here nor there. As an alternative, we were suggested a Ford Mustang at double the rate we had booked. We ended up agreeing on a Ford Focus, at a cost of $100 more than our estimated total. The friendly Thrifty representative offered us the Mustang at the same price, which we accepted. The experience overall was mediocre. Had we known that only a van would have been made available to us for the agreed upon price, we would have made separate arrangements.Reviewed 6 Jul 2017

The amount charged to my credit card was nearly twPros:The car was fine.Cons:The pick up location that Kayak sent us to was different than the one Thrifty had the reservation at. The amount charged to my credit card was nearly twice the amount quoted (which had the fees included). I still don't have that sorted out yet.Reviewed 4 Aug 2016
