Pros:Pick up and drop off was super easy. Staff was great!Cons:No complaints at all!Reviewed 31 Jan. 2021

Pros:Easy to rent online.Cons:I was not even able to get to Ft Lauderdale to pick up the car because the airline canceled our flight from Costa Rica due to COVID19. There was no way to contact the rental car company because we are still stranded in a foreign country with no way to call. We wanted to request a refund because our flight was canceled. It was not disclosed to us that the rental was non-refundable until after the car was booked.Reviewed 3 Jun. 2020

Cons:The shuttle took a long time. There was only one person working the counter for Thrifty, Dollar and Hertz. The first car offered to me reeked of cigarettes - they did give me a different car with no problem. There was nobody present at drop off so you had to take the "leave your keys in the car and we will email you" optionReviewed 3 Aug. 2020

Pros:Dropoff was easy.Cons:At the desk signing the agreement, the attendant did not offer an option to not pay extra insurance. I declined the highest level, was still tricked into excessive loss/damage waiver of $40/day, I regret that.He was well coached to suck dollars from my pocket outside of the on line agreement. That was a lousy thing to do. Getting the car also was extremely unorganized, a half dozen people surrounding an agent in the garage, we got what we wanted, but stressful and disorganized. Yhe cheaper the car, the less likely those people were to get what they wanted.Reviewed 9 Dec. 2019

I almost had a heart attack!Cons:Returning my 2 day car rental. Was asked if I wanted an email receipt. Sure. At the airport a few hours early, stopped for lunch and opened my email, only to find that my $90 rental was charged as $358 on my visa. Called the 800# and they couldn't help til the next day b/c my billing wasn't on their computer yet. I had time (and wanted to be able to sleep that night!), so I went back to the Thrifty counter and had it corrected. they were very helpful and handled my issue immediately. Good job, Thrifty! I'll def be back!Reviewed 17 Nov. 2017

Good value for money, but FL needs to do something about tolls!Pros:No shuttle necessary, you can pickup/drop-off right at Terminal 1 in FLL Fast, efficient service - pickup took about 10 mins (from the counter to the car), drop-off took 2 mins.Cons:PlatePass is the 'scan by plate' toll system that the rental car companies push you to buy. Thrifty charges $10.49/day for PlatePass (as of Aug 23 2017) - this is an all inclusive rate, which means you can go through as many toll plazas as you want, as many times as you want. The lady who sold me PlatePass was absolutely right in that the vast majority of toll plazas in FL don't accept cash. If you drive through one, most rental car companies will charge you $15 PER EVENT! So you're better off taking PlatePass, although it is ridiculously expensive! I spent most of my traveling time on FL's Turnpike and US-1, and the tolls aren't that expensive - in all, I might have paid $15-20 over the course of a week, if I could have paid in cash/credit/some other mechanism. Unfortunately, the toll system is not designed with tourists in mind, which is odd given how much of FL's revenue comes from tourism. The car rental lobby has been successful in their efforts to keep the toll system accessible to tourists only through their expensive 'tools'.Reviewed 31 Aug. 2017

Pros:The staff member that helped me rent the car was very nice and the process was extremely easy.Cons:The line to pick up my already reserved car was pretty long (I was 10th in line) and there were only 2 people there so I had to wait overall about 30 minutes. Then upon leaving the woman at the booth was screaming to somebody at the phone that she needed someone to relieve her because she had been there all day, she was very upset and made it very uncomfortableReviewed 7 Feb. 2021

Pros:Great quality compact car for the price.Cons:I waited 2 hours & 20 minutes on line just to pick up my rental, then an additional 20 minutes to get the car in the lot. We had to cancel our plans for the day since unlike my previous rentals this pick up took up our day. When your trip is short you don’t want to spend hours waiting for a cheaper rental price. I’d rather pay more money for faster service. Only 2 employees were working during a high volume time.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2021
