Pros:Easy to drop off.Reviewed 13 Apr. 2021

Cons:We did not get to go on our Hawai’i vacation because of COVID-19. Our flight was canceled. When I tried to cancel my reservation for the car I was told that Thrifty was not refunding any payments made after April 30. Spent 5 days trying to resolve this and gave up! So disappointing!Reviewed 6 Aug. 2020

Cons:The woman who assigned the car to me asked if I would like the accept the $40 a day insurance. I declined and added a second driver to the rental which increased the total of the rental by $13 a day. The woman at the counter told me the amount that would be held on my credit card and had me sign for the car and the additional driver. The process seemed smooth enough and she handed me the keys and the agreement to put in the car and said I didn’t even need to do a car inspection and could just leave. I should have known it was too good to be true then. My friend and I got our vehicle and had a great vacation. We returned the rental and I received the email saying the total bill amount, which was different than the amount they emailed when I checked out the vehicle and it stated I had accepted the $40 insurance per day. I called and spoke with a representative and he said I had signed to accept the insurance, and when I told him the woman told me I was signing for the car he said it was my fault for blindly signing. I’m waiting to hear back from a manager to fight this, but be aware that if you rent from Thrifty that their employees are dishonest and will lie to you to get you to sign for something to pay double what the car would normally cost. I will not ever rent from them again.Reviewed 5 Feb. 2020

Excellent ServicePros:I booked my thrifty car rental in Honolulu through kayak online it was very quick and easy. My flight was delayed and I was worried as I was fifteen minutes late to pick up my car from the rental service but the staff were very accommodating and there was no issues. On pick up I had the most helpful staff member named Ed give me multiple suggestions of places to visit in Oahu. He was so friendly and helpful he was a joy to chat to. The car was very good and was great for gas. Only need to fill up the tank 1.5 times during two week rental and I was driving all over the island. Upon return the staff were very quick taking only a few minutes to check the car before telling me everything was in order and I was free to take their free shuttle bus to the airport. All in all an excellent experience.Cons:There was very little I didn't like about the service. The only thing which I feel could be done differently is at pick up I was offered a fuel insurance. Where if I paid $44 I could bring the car back with any level of gas. At the time I thought this was a good deal however when filling the car up from empty I found it only cost $28 for a full tank of gas. Apart from that there was nothing else I would change about the service.Reviewed 25 Nov. 2017

Pros:Drop off was quick and smooth. Agent was friendly.Cons:Pickup took too long. Agent spent too long trying to upsell and we weren’t interested and expressed such. Then, the car we were assigned looked like it had been washed with sandpaper. It was clear the car had been abused. Top was clunky and interior was dirty. Will not rent from this company again.Reviewed 19 Mar. 2021

Problem upon drop off with supposed damageCons:Told me to look over the car for larger than golf ball sized dents and scratches longer than 5 inches. I did so in the failing light as I took the car. When I returned it, the checker asks me about a super small dent/much smaller than 5" scratch in the back driver side quarter panel. It felt scammy to be honest. I stated not only did I not see it when I rented the vehicle, I could barely see what he was pointing out in broad daylight as I returned it. They made me file a claim, my insurance company is now involved and I'm waiting to see if Thrifty pursues it. It seems to be entirely up to Thrifty if they want to try to make me pay for something I for sure didn't do (for 42 of the 48 hrs I had the car it was parked in an indoor garage against a concrete wall on the driver's side, making it impossible for the damage to have happened while it was parked). I was involved in no accidents or scrapes or anything while driving, so it literally couldn't have happened on my watch. Just unwanted stress and did not feel taken care of or believed as the customer.Reviewed 3 Mar. 2017

Pros:Pickup was easy.Cons:Price was $2,500 OVER the estimated charge when I dropped off car. The woman checking in the car did not know why. After I had mistakenly paid and told her the situation all she could say was "too late now!" Wouldn't you check the amount to see if it was accurate BEFORE checking in the vehicle? Luckily I went into the front office and they corrected the error.Reviewed 23 Mar. 2021
