Avoid this branch at all costsCons:With no notice of any kind, I discovered at the checkout desk that this franchise caps mileage at 150 miles/day, and does not allow travel outside the state. I have not run across such limitations in more than a decade because it simply isn't done anymore. Because I don't know what other franchises might be allowed to operate under such non-standard rules, I will not rent again from Thrifty. This foolishness cost me $150 because I had to then get a car from another company but without a reservation.Reviewed 12 Oct. 2017

Unexpected insurance charge :(Pros:Nissan versa surprisingly comfortable and real gas sipper.Cons:Was disappointed to learn the 3rd party rental insurance I purchased online SUPPOSEDLY still needed additional coverage added at thrifty? Suspicious, but needed a car so whatever.Reviewed 10 Dec. 2017

Over the top comfort and gas mileage.Pros:This 2017 Nissan Altima provided all the comfort and luxury I wanted for the trip across the state. Fuel efficiency was tank to drive 515 miles....pleasant surprise.Cons:I did not appreciate the price difference between online quote and actual charges. It was explained to me by the rental agent that the website could not give an accurate price since "it did not know exact taxes and fees," for the location which really sounds really hooey to me. We are in the computer age where large volumes of data are transmitted in nanoseconds. I will not use Kayak for booking rentals again. The lack of transparency is a game changer for me.Reviewed 4 Nov. 2017

Pros:It was transportationCons:The car was too small, the ignition was hard to turn off and on. I never could find the lever to open the fuel tank door, so I could not return the car with a full tank. This was by far my worst rental car experience.Reviewed 7 Feb. 2017

They were not open when I arrivedPros:The price would have been better than the price I got for the national rental I had to get at the counterCons:They close at 7pm so any flight that arrives after that can not get their car. This was not clear when I rented it on kayak. I had to rent a car in person at the counter of national rentalReviewed 5 Feb. 2016

Alright service in MelbournePros:Professional and very helpful staff. They were willing to help me with the changes I needed to make.Cons:When I arrived to the airport there was no one at the Thrifty counter so I could pick up my car. Fortunately I had a ride just in case, but I had to come back the next day to pick up my car and wasn't given a discount due to the one day fewer that I was renting it.Reviewed 7 Oct. 2017
