Cons:Pick up at ORD was very slow and they asked me to wait in the seating area as no cars I have reserved were available. I let staff know I wasn’t picky. After waiting for over half hour I realized I had been forgotten. I returned to the line and was treated quite rudely by a staff member. I noticed he was similarly very rude to another customer and family. It was extremely off putting. Traveling in a Pandemic I’d stressful and only due to emergency. Being treated disrespectfully when the agency itself was at fault was very unfortunate. The car itself was fine and served me well. The service left quite a lot to be desired.Reviewed 21 Jan. 2021

Pros:The lady working the counter was friendly and great at what she does, it went quick, and she reminded me about the Chicago tolls, I was very glad to have bought a toll pass.Cons:Signs in the garage, I had to roam around a bit to find the spot. Spot numbers on the floor are kind of worn off.Reviewed 25 Jun. 2020

Pros:The car rental was cheaper here than from some other places. After all the add-ons they through at me not as cheap, but it was fine. The car was fine. The employees were fine. Other than a few notable exceptions, the car was exactly what I expected.Cons:The A/C didn't work in the shuttle bus from the airport. The car was either not cleaned, or the person who cleaned it left their shammy cloth in the back window. The car also had pre-existing damage which I marked on the paper. Nobody instructed me to do this or to even check the car for damage, but I'm glad that I did as the person looking at the car when I returned it definitely noticed the damage. I had the insurance anyway, but did not want to deal with that headache so was glad that I noted it before driving the car off the property.Reviewed 7 Jun. 2018

Pros:Nothing. They had zero vehicles available when I checked in despite my reservation. Was told they "might" have a car for me in 2-3 hours. Unacceptable. I then had to rent as a walk-up customer at one of the other agencies, which of course cost significantly more.Cons:Have cars available if people reserve them!!!Reviewed 23 Feb. 2021

Cons:Checking in at the rental desk was not great, even with a reservation - the staff was fairly uninterested in being there. The car was not particularly clean and had several dings and scratches that I needed to record so that they weren’t pinned on me. I hated the car (GMC Terrain) and found it’s technology and features dated. Drop off process was easy. Overall a mediocre experience.Reviewed 6 Jan. 2021

Cons:They didn't have any cars when I arrived for my reservation. 6 other people before me waited as well. They should be more organized, completely messed up my morning.Reviewed 12 Mar. 2021

Pros:The price was very good and the car was much better both in miles and luxury than I expected.Cons:I waited 20 minutes in line to meet with the counter agent. I was skipped over many times as they selected "Dollar" customers over "Thrifty" customers even though it's own by the same corporation. After the 20 minute wait to see the agent, I waited another 40 minutes for my car to be "sanitized" due to Covid and it was clear that all they did was wash the outside of the car. The inside still had crumbs from the last renter.Reviewed 5 Nov. 2020

Cons:Proper functioning equipment. The EZPASS was defective and had to pay tolls on the skyway by credit card and will be likely fined by the illinois tollway for unpaid tolls.Reviewed 22 Aug. 2020

Schiller Park ThriftyCons:Picking up the car was extremely slow due to only one person being on duty and moving like it was the DMV. I was the third person in line when I arrived and it took over 30 minutes to get to the counter. Once I got the vehicle I noticed that the rental contract was for $553 instead of the $289 reservation rate. Going back inside was not an option because there were over 10 people in line by that point. The person at the exit gate gave me the managers office number, whcih turned out to be a waste of time because they never answer and will not return calls. I even spoke with the 800 number personnel who left a message for te local manager to no avail. I will never rent form this location againReviewed 16 Oct. 2015
