When I got to the counter, they told me, They didn’t have any car available. So I wasn’t able to rent a car even do I did the reservation and I got The confirmation. So the experience was really bad. I know it’s not your fault, but it’s just to review the people or companies you work with, thanks and I hope this comments help you.Reviewed 21 Dec 2023

BEWARE. Reservations do not matterPros:Reservation made sept 2016 for the ONLY vacation I get all year at Christmas. Confirmed six times - even before leaving LAX! Arrived and was told "sorry lady we have no cars". Without all the horrible details here's a f ew: - 3.5 hours begging/crying at counter they did not care although my reservation was acknowledged. - Christmas day, traveling solo and disabled, they did not care. - Supervisor got on phone, he did not care. - I had nowhere to go and NO transportation. - 3.5 hours later "we found a car it will be $800" THIEVES AND LIARS. I witnessed FIVE other renters on either side of the Thrifty rental counter told the same thing.Cons:Learned from MANY locals, "they do it all the time". - my reservation was for 16 days $300. I would NEVER give that country one dime out of my own pocket although the USA has given them HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars to rebuild. Their culture is deplorable. They need to be delivered from the rampant "deception with a smile."Reviewed 16 Jan 2017

Bad Car experiencePros:NOTHINGCons:I have rented cars for a little over 10 years now and this was the worst car experience. I rented a car in Punta cana for 13 days and when I got there around 2 pm when I go to pick my car up there wasn't any available. Not even that, before I left for my trip I confirmed it and they told me my car was available. Don't know how that works?? And to end the story short they triple the price? Worst car rental in the caribbean!!!! DONT RENT THRIFTY IN PUNTA CANA.Reviewed 8 Jan 2017

The car served us adiquately for the week.Pros:The car drove nice, but was a stiff ride in the back seat for two adults. We were able to get four adult and 6+ bags. The air conditioning worked well. It had enough power to manuver when needed.Cons:The Hyundai Accent is a small "Full size" car. Very short leg space in the back seat. The outside of the car was clean enough, but the inside of the windshield was very bad. Refracted the sunlight to the point we had to stop and find water and towels to scrub the inside clean. I expected the required liablity insurance to be extra, but the required ups and extras almost doubled the original quoted cost. I was very nervious driving, fearing someone might hit me and we were warned of the consequences.Reviewed 11 Dec 2016

Not American Standards and Extra Charges - Punta CPros:Car was fairly new and clean. Upon return rep drove us to our terminal in the car and helped us manage our luggage.Cons:There were surprise extra charges and they insisted on putting a $1500 hold on my credit card because I declined their insurance. The car was smaller than what I reserved and there were no other options so we squeezed in and didn't have a very safe situation. There were several stickers partially removed from the windshield that obstructed the view.Reviewed 16 Oct 2016
