Overall a great rental experiencePros:Quality car, efficient and friendly vehicle pick up at PDX and drop off at OAK.Cons:My flight into PDX was significantly delayed (6+ hours delayed), which impacted the timing of my rental car pick up. When I called Thrifty to let them know about my flight delay the agent told me that my rental cost would change due to my pick up now being June 1st rather than May 31st. The rate was going to increase by $400 despite the circumstances being out of my control. The agent had to get her supervisor's approval before honoring my original rate. This added unnecessary stress to an already stressful situation.Reviewed 11 Jun. 2017

What's the point of a reservation?Cons:Made a reservation in advance. Planned a vacation around that reservation. Showed up to pick up my car and... "Sorry, we have no cars available." This was being told to a room of about 5 reservation holders ahead of me. We were told we could shop other companies or wait until a car became available. It was one of the most inconveniencing experiences I've ever had. No apology was given by the Thrifty rep - she pretended it was normal. I blame Thrifty AND Kayak... this reservation system is a sham.Reviewed 18 Apr. 2017
