Cons:Thrifty is massively understaffed at DTW. The line to pick up a car after midnight was 40 people long - with only one representative available and all the self-service machines broken. The line to drop off the car was also many cars long, and I had to wait for nearly 20 minutes for the representative to get through the line to collect the keys.Reviewed 21 Feb. 2017

Cons:Thrify charged my credit card an extra $100 which was paid back at car return. This is my first experience with this and I do not like it and won't be returning to thrifty.Reviewed 9 Aug. 2017

No ComputerCons:The "at the car person" had no working computer so I had to go inside to drop off. Hmmmm! On the other hand, the courtesy bus driver was REALLY nice. Good job.Reviewed 31 May 2017

Two hours to get out of DTW?Cons:When I arrived at Thrifty at DTW, the line was out the door, and there were three stations open. They never brought on extra people, even though it was the day before a UofM football game, and half of Florida was flying in for the game. It took an hour to get to the counter, and once I had the car, another hour to get out of the parking lot, because they only have one exit booth!!Reviewed 16 Sep. 2016

Pros:Nothing.Cons:After 10 hours of traveling I get to Detroit at 2 am with my 5 month old daughter and wife. The clerk tells me that before he can take my money and /or deposit he wants to run a credit check. Now this is problem for 2 reasons. One they had already taken the money for the insurance and I needed proof of my itinerary (which I had). So after running my credit I was denied. They didn't try to extend a solution to me or my family and told me that the only thing they could do was put me and my family back on a shuttle to the airport. I was in town for a funeral and ended up catching an Uber from the airport to my destination. This was a MAJOR inconvenience for not only that night but the funeral too. I WILL NEVER USE THRIFTY.Reviewed 13 Mar. 2017

Watch the price go up when you return the car!Cons:I didn't like the fact that the price of the car rental guaranteed by Kayak, jumped up a couple HUNDRED dollars upon return - and nobody at Thrifty has helped one bit!Reviewed 20 Feb. 2017

Pros:The care was fine and clean, in good shape and the check in was quickCons:That they wanted to charge for my wife being an extra driver. No other Rental company does that - but Thrifty wanted 13 dollars a day for it. Plus when I wanted to add liability insurance, they wanted to charge 29.99 per day. This is more than double what other companies charge and is obvious gouging. I will not rent from Thrifty again.Reviewed 2 Jan. 2017
