Horrible roadside assistancePros:Fast friendly service at the Boise, ID airport and Portland, OR airport offices.Cons:Car had 2 tires wore down below the wear bars, plus 1 tire with a slow leak. Roadside assistance was HORRIBLE to work with. They "could not reach the local office", which meant they could not get a replacement vehicle for me. They were very rude, and insisted I keep calling back every hour until they where able to reach the local office. (I called the local office 3 times, and they answered every time). In the end, I just took 3 hours out of my day to drive to the local office and switch vehicles myself. I will say that the local office was incredibly fast, friendly, and accommodating. My only issue is with roadside assistance.Reviewed 8 Apr. 2017

Cons:I’ll never use a discount car rental again. I saved $5, but my trip was canceled due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Since I saved $5 on the discounted price, I was not refundable and they would not allow me to change the rental to a future date. Horrible customer service. Stay away!Reviewed 15 Jul. 2020

Pros:Alison was professional and helpful. I wish her computers were running faster! The software was taking a while to load yet she wasn’t getting frustrated. She was quick on her feet and started to boot up another computer. Easy drop off, overall smooth process. Thanks!Cons:The inside of the vehicle could have been sprayed out/ cleaned a little better. There was caked on dirt in the trunk area and dog hair in the back seat. Overall staff was great and accommodating.Reviewed 13 Sep. 2020

Happy, For the Most PartPros:Car was clean. It drove nicely, felt super reliable. I received a Nissan Sentra, which was perfect size for me to take on short distance roadtrips out in western US. I thought I got the rental for a decent price.Cons:I was dismayed at all the extra charges the representative was trying to push on me as I was acquiring the rental. One shot was fired after another: extra insurance coverage (in case of collisions), oh, here is a more expensive SUV you may want to use in this part of the country, oh how bout this car that's slightly more expensive than the one you asked for, and how bout paying for a full tank of gas now instead of having to worry about bringing the car back with a full tank. I didn't accept any of these extra fees and did my best to be careful when driving the car. I think what annoys me most is their threat of making you pay for a chip that shows up in a windshield, like how do you have control over such a thing from happening??? YOU DON'T.Reviewed 25 Mar. 2018

Double check the estimate at pickupPros:The car was a Ford Fusion hybrid. It got almost 40 miles per gallon which made it extremely inexpensive to drive everywhere.Cons:What I didn’t appreciate as much was that when we went to pickup the car, the attendant gave me an estimate that was almost three times the original reservation ($1250 versus $466). When I asked how they could be so different, he said we booked through a third party so he couldn’t see the insurance we had purchased. So when he added Thrifty’s insurance, our estimate was excessively high. I had him remove their insurance and re-run it. Before he would do it though, he made us tell him who our car insurance carrier is to confirm they would cover it even though we had purchased insurance. He also told us that if we were in an accident, they would go after us and we would have to go after the third party insurance company. When he finally re-ran it, the estimate was almost the same as the original; close enough to take it and move on. The whole interaction seemed awkward and borderline deceptive. Finally, I was unaware that Thrifty is affiliated with Dollar. I’m not sure why they operate under two company names but share a counter and employees.Reviewed 15 Jul. 2018

Thrifty saved my dayPros:My original rental car would not start after the first day. Normally I would have had to return the car to the airport but I am on call and in a situation where I could not do this with much effort I did manage to leave a message for the oncall manager and to my surprise they showed up with a new car and exchanged it for the faulty one at my Airbnb where I was staying. Thank you for going above and beyond late in the evening to accommodate my needs I appreciate that you recognized that I was in a very challenging situationCons:It took a lot of convincing I was surprised there was no manager on site at 8 in the evening but they took care of it anyway thank youReviewed 18 Aug. 2018

No cars available, rude and unhelpfulCons:When I arrived there were no cars available. The woman told me I may be waiting a couple hours and suggested I look elsewhere. She did not apologize for the inconvenience nor offer any assistance. I ended up renting from Avis after the man from Budget helped me find an affordable rental.Reviewed 20 Oct. 2016
