Everything done right.Pros:Automatically refunded the extra $10 I paid at check out when I thought I might be an hour later with return. In and out quickly. No hard sell on extras.Reviewed 21 Sep. 2017

Cons:When I arrived at the counter I was offered a foreign make. I stated that I needed an American brand for this trip. I was offered a Ford Fusion, which was the same size (Full Size) for an additional $10 per day. When asked if that was okay, I said no. After 5+ minutes of looking for other vehicles I was given that car for the same price. When I booked the rental, it stated Ford Fusion or similar. I understand how the game works, but why try to get $10 more per day and then keep me waiting there when that's the class i leased?Reviewed 16 Dec. 2018

Pros:The staff was unfriendly not helpful and kinda terrible . I didnt like anything about this experience and 10/10 do not recommendCons:They could have been more helpful. I was $10.00 short on a hidden deposit I was unaware of until my arrival. Therefore I had to call my grandmother so she could come use her card. Since it was a different card they charged me an extra 50 dollars because she was a driver. Obviously she wasn't a driver she was just helping me out. They didnt care about the dilemma and made no attempt to help me out. The process that should have been 5 mins took an extra hour l after already being on the plane for 8 hours. The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful through the whole process.Reviewed 17 Aug. 2020

Pros:Car was ok----Ford Eco SportCons:The Thrifty location was farthest from terminal. The staff was occupied with one customer. The wait was long. The attendant did not know how to open the back of SUV. Therebwas no one there when the car was returned---not a single person and they were aware fo when I was returning. Thrify is cheap for a reason!Reviewed 17 Sep. 2020

Cons:Bad service. No help when arrived at site to pick up car. Im pretty sure they didnt have any suv for me as i reserved. Acted very shady and rude. had to rent car from somewhere else. Much better service and much more professional help by this other company.Reviewed 24 May 2017

Doors taped shut???Pros:Drop off was fine.Cons:Car had tape residue on 3 doors. Not sure why. Car itself, a Nissan Versa is clunky and the windows fog up constantly. Not that great of gas mileage for a small car. Of course, the make of the car is not Thrify's fault, but I wouldn't rent another one.Reviewed 22 Mar. 2017
