Cons:Had to cancel my reservation 2 Months ago due to a wedding cancellation because of Covid. Thrifty told me that I can submit an appeal to get my money back but would not be told the outcome until after my reservation date. Ridiculous!Reviewed 7 Sep. 2020

Pros:Being able to book a reasonably priced car so quick and easily.Cons:I tried to get in touch with someone to let them know I was running late to get the car, try to modify the reservation, or add a driver and every place I called said they wouldn’t do it for me. Then because I couldn’t get in touch with anyone and was late, my reservation “didn’t exist anymore” and I was charged for a car I never even drove. Worst customer service.Reviewed 30 Jun. 2020

Cons:I reserved and paid for a premium car. They had none at pick up and offered me a kia. When I said that was not a premium I waited while he walked around. The line behind me grew longer so I finally said I'd take the toyota. When pushed they took $50 courtesy off. They could have had the car I paid for there for me or offered to fix the pricing without my having to push so hard and making everyone wait while he dithered. More staff there might have made things smother for the ones waiting behind me too.Reviewed 30 Dec. 2019

Cashless tolling = ridiculous feesPros:Typical rental car. Desk staff didn't try to strong arm me into buying some insurance policy I didn't need. Sad that that's a plus, but it is.Cons:Now that Massachusetts tolls are all cashless, rental car companies have found a new way to squeeze more money out of you. They'll either rent you an EZ-Pass for $15 a day (not including tolls - that's just the rental fee for the device), or, they'll charge you $18 each time you go through a tolling point and they get a pay-by-plate bill (again, plus the cost of the toll.) Especially since it's next to impossible to get out of Logan airport without hitting a toll, this feels like a bait and switch. I was quoted $55 for a vehicle for two days, which quickly turned into $85. Rental car companies should be required to disclose this when they quote a price from Logan, if not everywhere in MA. I get it that they didn't make the decision for tolls to be cashless, but it gives them this ridiculous lever to literally double the price of most of their daily rates.Reviewed 20 Feb. 2017

Good experience overall, but ...Pros:The overall rental operation appears to be run well. The staff is courteous and helpful and the cars are clean.Cons:Three issues keep me from giving my rental experience a 5/5 overall. The first is my own fault, I agreed to accept a "compact" vehicle. In the Thrify world this means I got a Mazda 2, a very small, loud, and harsh riding automobile. This car would make a good first car for an 18 yo, but is significantly smaller and less equipped than the average car I am accustom to. It was fairly new, (25,000 miles), got great gas mileage and was fairly quick, but I never felt safe driving on I-90. Which brings me to my next two issues; the car didn't have cruise control and it shook badly when driving over 65 MPH. I fault the Thrify airport ticket agent for putting me in a car without cruise control. She new I would be driving on I-90 and talked me into getting the express pay toll apparatus, but never mentioned that my selected auto didn't have cruise control. What new car doesn't have cruise control? Finally, the car had a bad vibration when driving over 65 miles per hour. So bad that the entire steering wheel, seats and occupants shook. Unfortunately for me, it took nearly 20 miles of driving to get far enough away from Boston to get the car up to 65 miles. By that time it was too late in the day to turn around and request a replacement vehicle.Reviewed 30 Nov. 2015

Cons:We were never able to get our Thrifty rental car because they wouldnt release the car to my husband. I had booked the reservation six weeks in advance and put it in my husbands name who would be picking up the vehicle. When they got to the rental car pick at at 5:30am after being on a flight all night they were turned away in the cold and said there was nothing that they could do. Since I had booked the car with my credit card. No where on Kayak's website or Thrifty do they tell you that you cannot pay with a debit card. When my husband got to the rental car place he only had a copy of my credit card which they wouldnt take. and then They wouldnt let him re book the car with a debit card. So thrifty turned my husband and kids away in the freezing cold with no solution and not knowing where to go next. Would never book with them again. Horrible customer service.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2016

Decent little car in good shape, but the upsell atPros:The car was a recent model, in good condition aside from normal wear-and-tear (scuff marks around door handles and such). Drop-off was quick and relatively smooth, with the exception that the amount quoted at drop-off didn't match the amount quoted at pick-up (and, unfortunately, I'd misplaced the original paperwork to compare).Cons:It took about 15 minutes at the pick-up counter to get through all the BS upsell attempts, including the attempt to scare me into buying Thrifty insurance despite having already procured third-party, primary insurance for a substantially lesser cost. They also want $8/day for use of the EZPass installed in the car, and there's no way to do so for just part of the rental (I'd have happily done so for the two of the 10 days I was going to be driving toll roads, but most of my time was going to be in western Maine and northern Vermont, neither of which have any). The 15-minute checkout time was especially obnoxious because it was consistent for the folks in line in front of me, too, meaning that I had to wait in line while they dealt with the upsells and such. After spending all day in planes and airports, including sitting on tarmac for 45 minutes waiting for takeoff clearance, an efficient pick-up and less time wasted in the process would've been very much appreciated, especially for the two folks traveling with me who would've made their bus connection if we'd left the airport 15 minutes sooner.Reviewed 28 Sep. 2016

Pros:Staff was very nice when I rented it. There was no staff when I returned the car as it was 4 in the morning. No problem.Cons:it should not have cost so much just because it was summer in New England. Over $500 for a week was too much but I had no choice.Reviewed 6 Jul. 2020
