10 Jan. 2017
Pros: nothing
Cons: nothing - just dropped the keys off
2.0 Mediocre
7 Oct. 2019
Pros: Nothing
Cons: The reservation was cancelled after I booked the advertised car online through a 3rd party website. It was a very disappointing experience to have to try again 5 times to actually have the booking accepted. Why don't the 3rd party rental companies and Thrifty communicate better so customers actually have a good experience instead of tearing out their hair?
9.6 Excellent
14 Oct. 2019
Pros: Upon return the agent was very helpful getting us to where we needed to go. Went beyond expectation.
