Pros:Thrifty was fineCons:Thrifty was fine, but priceline was terrible, it was not clear that the rental was not editable and it really screwed me up. I will not be renting using Kayak again unless I am giving more trip flexiablity. Also I rent a car with 7 seat and had to upgraded to even get what I rented. ReeeeddiculousReviewed 8 Feb. 2021

Pros:Drop off personnel was helpful.Cons:Rented one type of car and when I got there had to wait the original car was not available no incentive was offered for the mix up ended up paying more then originally planned for a smaller car. And car was dirty and empty on gas when received when I went to the counter to inform they answered that is all that was available.Reviewed 16 Sep. 2020

Pros:It is very conveniently located right outside the free Airtrain stop Federal Circle. Is open 24 hours, so when my flight was delayed by seven hours, it was fine to pick up my car at 3 am.Cons:The costumer service was non- exisistiant. If you pay the extra fee of a toll pass, make sure you slide it out of its holder. The woman told me I was all set with it, but it was dark out being three in the morning and the light in the car not being set to turn on when the doors opened, I didn’t see the instruction on the easy pass display which stated you had to slide the easy pass out of its holder in order for it to work, causing me to go through six tolls without it being activated.Reviewed 12 Apr. 2018

Cons:3 hour waits to pick up a mini van. That for sure could be better. I had a scheduled pick up for 1230 and I didn’t receive a car until after 3pm. Terrible serviceReviewed 23 Oct. 2020

Pros:Clean carCons:Be aware that Allianz car insurance is not accepted here. I don't own a car and was in a rush, so I had no remedy than to accept their overpriced insurance. Also, taxes and fees were about $40 more than the estimate I got here and Hotwire.Reviewed 23 Dec. 2017

Poor experienceCons:Counter staff is fully aware but unapologetic for their google maps location being off and our walking 45 minutes to an incorrect location. Had to wait 45 minutes for a car with 10 others because "the cars were in the wash". Staff berates us for not taking EZPass or their coverage even though we explained we have coverage through the booking on Kayak.Reviewed 19 Sep. 2016

Pickup staff at JFK not friendly or customer oriented.Cons:Staff threatened us with fines if we didn't purchase $100 toll payment transponder in car. Didnt explain need for toll payment unit well.Reviewed 17 Oct. 2017
review fromkayak
Cons:I was told the rental would be around 85.00 and it was 383. we did upgrade to a slightly larger car and we were told she would give it to us for a SLIGHT increase. Seems I should've checked further reviews of this company. I will NOT refer this to anyone. What a ripoff. Thrifty was not friendly .Reviewed 29 Mar. 2017

I don't think it really mattersPros:Not muchCons:I don't think it really matters, nothing will be done, and I'll gain nothing from this, so I'm not wasting my time discussing it with you, unless I will actually get something for it, and then you can personally email me again at The chances are that you won't, because nobody really reads this anyway:)Reviewed 5 Dec. 2016
