Cons:Thrifty counter representative repeatedly attempted to add additional costs (additional driver, unwanted insurance, upselling) against our direct and repeated wishes otherwise. She also did not give us the car we were supposed to receive, a "Generic Specialty car or similar," but instead gave us the smallest compact car on the lot. We will not use this Thrifty location again.Reviewed 2 May 2017

Don't botherPros:Nice carCons:Hertz and enterprise shuttles came by 5 times more often than thrifty so I waited at least 30 minutes at laguardia airport before renting. Only one person working at thrifty so renting took forever. When I returned the car I took an uber back to Laguardia because I couldn't rely on the shuttle to be timely and we were running late. Not worth it. Will use Hertz (because I'm a gold member there) in the future. Although I think they own thrifty so maybe I will use someone else.Reviewed 17 Apr. 2016

Pros:Dropoff easyCons:Was virtually impossible to contact the online broker to extend the rental as well as thrifty to extend the rental. When I had a problem, both companies told me to contact the other, with impossible online interfaces or confusing phone numbers with huge hold times. In the end, was very difficult to figure out how much I had paid. I had to search the prepayment amounts and the final receipt and then add them together myself, rather than have the on one final receipt. Also, the tolls program is ridiculous. I won't even go into that, but I am still trying to deal with it. Thrifty tells me to contact an outside company that deals with it and the outside company has a 5-7 day wait time for a response to a question. This is ridiculous.Reviewed 4 Jun. 2020

Pros:Friendly staff, easy pick up and drop off, car was clean and comfortableCons:I was under the impression the total for the rental was $609 which is what was stated on the receipt at pick up and in the two receipts that were emailed to me. Only when I checked my credit card statement, I saw another charge for $326 and when I phoned Thrifty, was told this was the primary charge for the car itself. I was never emailed or given a receipt for this until I phoned and it was never mentioned to me that the $609 I was charged at pick-up, was just the insurance and fees.Reviewed 5 Jan. 2021
