Pros:There was NOTHING to likeCons:It would have been a lot better if I could have rescheduled this reservation. As it was, I was 4000 miles away, unable to use this rental because of the covid-19 issue.Reviewed 3 Jul. 2020

Pros:When I went to get the economy car I thought I had ordered, they said I ordered a "managers selection". And the managers selection was a van or a mustang. The truth is when I ordered the car online - the first thing I had to do was choose the type of car I wanted...I chose the economy car then it was stated that the car rental dealer would choose the economy car available. When I got there they said they chose any car they want for you. It doesn't make sense...why does the website even ask you the type of car you want. You are given a false impression and then when you get to the car rental facility, you have to pay much more for the car you want.Cons:It would be nice if they didn't take advantage of people- sticking them with a car or price tag not ordered.Reviewed 18 Dec. 2019

Pros:Nothing.Cons:Your agent would not honor the rental reservation because our flight arrived late. While there were cars available on your website, the agent said she had no cars available. We had to rent a car from Avis. I will never rent from Thrifty again and I will tell everyone I know about the horrible experience I had with your company and your representative.Reviewed 4 Jan. 2021

Pros:The car.Cons:The service at Thrifty. I accidentiy reserved the car for 1 day later than when we needed it. They didn't have the Jeep ready so we were going to need another car for 1 day until the Jeep was ready the next morning. My wife was there by herself and the completely took advantage of the fact that she is a female. They tried to charge her 600 dollars saying she could just keep that van for the whole time instead of the Jeep (which I rented for 250 for a whole week). They also charged her 100 dollars over any of their online rental fees for the 1 day. Once we got the car, all things were great. I just do not appreciate them taking advantage of a female who was picking up the car alone, while I was flying in from another city.Reviewed 14 Feb. 2016
