Panama City Airport Thrifty Customer Service is AtPros:They didn't give us a car even though we had a online reservations. The reason I was given is because their desk system takes 4 hours to synchronize with their online reservation system.Cons:The lady working the desk was not helpful at all and very patronizing when describing to us why she couldn't just rent us a car even though we had a online reservation. After her explanation we asked if we could make a booking with her, she took 10 minutes to tell us how the rates at the desk would be $300 (it looked like this was just made up) for 3 days instead of the online quoted price of $84 but after all that she said she had no cars. All in all one of the worst customer service travel encounters I've had in my life.Reviewed 8 Jan. 2017

Terrible Experience from Start to FinishCons:When I got to the rental car desk, I was surprised to find to out that they refused to accept my existing insurance coverage through my credit card and forced me to sign up for their far more expensive coverage that literally cost 11x the price of the car per day. When I dropped the rental car off, there was literally no one from Thrifty at the lot. Every other rental agency had someone present, but I had to leave the car outside, go talk to an agent inside, check in for my flight, RETURN to the rental desk to finish the check out process, then get back in line for airport security. Awful experience.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2016

Cons:These people are rip off artists. We are experienced travelers and I had confirmed my insurance coverage available to me through my credit card before I left the country. When we arrived to pick up the vehicle they refused to accept the coverage and refused to allow us to rent the vehicle unless we paid their insurance. It was EXTORTION!! I recommend having several reservations lined up so when they pull this B.S. (and they will) you can walk next door. We paid over three times the quoted price.Reviewed 26 Aug. 2016

Mislead on pricePros:Didn't end up rentingCons:When booking thru kayak they quoted me a price more than 3x lower than avis and once in panama they requested an amount higher than avis saying that in their fine print it says that additional rates for insurance are applied. When booking I expect a full quote that does not require me to read the fine print of my rental contract. This is why I am now more likely to book through avis directly moving forward.Reviewed 5 Dec. 2016
