Easy to use in midst of travel messPros:Due to bad weather, our flight plan was diverted and we had to rent a car to drive the last 75 or so miles home. Thrifty worked well at this time. Rental process was easy. Return process was easy. Price was reasonable. Staff were competent and understanding.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2018

Pros:Drop off was easyCons:Thrifty service agent was unpleasant like she hated every minute of dealing with customers and I could have done without that. Was directed to another car rental place in the rental car area (I can't remember which kiosk, Avis maybe?) but then the envelope they used was Dollar, very confusing. No car was ready even though it didn't seem busy. We stood around for 30 minutes!!! Finally they brought us the car, which I found out was a 7 passenger SUV "recreational style" while I thought I had rented a full size SUV. I was told you can't rent a full size SUV on Such a bummer but we made due. There was melted candy below the window in the 3rd row seat on the left. Disgusting. How did they not see it? Never again with Thrifty!!Reviewed 4 Jan. 2020

Pros:Easy to drop off and pick up.Cons:It took almost an hour to go through the paper work and then finally get the car. That seemed to be long. There must be a way to shorten that time.Reviewed 24 Oct. 2016

Dirty beat up carCons:Car had trash in it. 22,000 mikes on the car and there were already dents and scratches all over it. Rented a "special" class vehicle and found out that's another word for compact.Reviewed 13 Feb. 2017

Great Car - Great ServicePros:The car was very clean and very well maintained for a vehicle of almost 20,000 miles. I thought at first it was brand new... The staff was friendly and very helpful.Cons:One minor issue: I had to wait in line to get the car for about 20 mins - if Avis and Budget are going to share kiosks then they need to man them sufficiently. Not a major issue, once at the counter the assistant was quick, knowledgeable and very helpful.Reviewed 20 Feb. 2018

Cons:- no one at drop off booth. Provides boxes for drop off and also tells you to come in into the airport- which one is it? Dropped it off after 24hrs. No one at the airport. Dropped it in the drop box. Got charged for 2 day usage. Not sure why. Now I have to make calls and waste time waiting for customer service. It is Sunday and customer service is closed.Reviewed 9 Jul. 2017

Good service but a little priceyPros:Clean, fairly fast... checkout was a little confusing because the counter and the car retrieval people got confused.Cons:Price. 80$ because we needed to go 150 miles but you obviously jack the rate across a stateline. Daily rentals are like 30, yet..... and we returned it under 7 hours... not even a full day. Feels bad.Reviewed 8 Apr. 2017
