Short rental-No issuesPros:Completed rental request on line. No issues.Cons:Rental was for only 28 hours over two days in Chicago. The daily rate was reasonable but the hourly add on rate above that was unreasonable for a small car.Reviewed 28 Mar. 2017

Pros:NothingCons:I lost money on this deal. The rental car company did not acknowledge the 65 dollars that I paid online with kayak and no one is retuning that amount to men they charged me separately for the whole thing. Feel cheatedReviewed 5 Nov. 2019

scammersPros:the person working the counter at pickup was nice. the sripoff setup at midway airport is efficient.Cons:they tried to charge me an additional $160 at pickup when I showed up 20 minutes early, then they couldn't figure out why the price was so much higher than the rate I has confirmed online. eventually I waited an extra hour so I could get the original rate. no idea why they didn't tell me that I would be charged so much extra for an early pickup. they just printed the bill and tried to get me to sign it. THEN, they tried to scam me out of nearly $400 when I needed the car an extra two days due to a blizzard canceling my flight. I was trying to return the car on time to an alternate location but they refused to give me a quote on the updated cost. eventually I realized if I return the car 20 minutes before the time they told me, it would reduce the new rate by more than $300. (keeping it to daily rate instead of weekly.) why the customer service rep didn't simply suggest this is beyond me. they obviously are hoping people won't have the energy to argue the exorbitant additional prices they sneak in.Reviewed 20 Mar. 2017

Pros:Car was clean, spacious and drove well.Cons:Very tired of rental car check in counter employee tacking on "optional" charges. I want exactly what I reserved. Nothing more, nothing less for the price at which I reserved the rental. If I didn't want insurance when I reserved the car I do not want it now. Bait and switch. Also, my car seat would not adjust so hopefully they will fix that for future customer. I took it "as is" only because it took me 40 minutes to get my rental car and it was 1 am in the morning and had an hour drive to hotel.Reviewed 24 Mar. 2016

Pros:Excellent value. Friendly staff.Cons:Check-in took forever. Clerk seemed unfamiliar with the process. Don't let them charge you $15/day for an additional driver. You can get it for no charge if you are a AAA member, but it should be free anyway for a spouse!Reviewed 24 Apr. 2019

Wrong car, no info and no signage.Cons:When the shuttle dropped us off at the desk (late at night 1:00) there was no one at the Thrifty desk. There were no signs directing us to another counter etc. After waiting for a while I saw a clerk from another company and asked if anyone was working the thrift desk. He said "oh you have to go up to the 3rd floor". The 3rd floor emptied off into the garage. I found the Thrifty booth, where there was 1 employee. The car I reserved was a Suburban....they had nothing in it's class. Only small SUVs...which we finally settled on. We loaded the car and drove 5 feet and had to wait another 15 minutes until the clerk finished with the next customer to walk over and open the gate for us to exit. When we returned the car the thrifty lot was closed 1:30am (no signage...just a car parked in the path). We (along with a security guard) circled the garage for 20 minutes looking for some sign that gave direction...nothing. The security guard then stated that we could leave the vehicle with Hertz...again...no one at the hertz check in so we are hoping that we were not charged the extra day (We returned the same time it was rented). Midway needs signage with the Thrifty deskReviewed 31 May 2017

Simple & Fast Check-out, Simple & Fast ReturnPros:There was no line at the pick-up desk, I was in my car and on the road within 15 minutes of arriving at the car rental facility. Drop off was a breeze, it took all of 3 minutes. The car performed as expected or better. Smooth and efficient.Reviewed 12 Jun. 2018
