Pros:Pick up and drop off were reasonably efficient. Car was good and fairly new.Cons:Explanations at pick up were rushed and a bit confusing eg re fuel payments. Little or no information in car re what to do if break down.Reviewed 8 Oct. 2019

Not what we expected....Pros:We had a working vehicle that got us where we needed to go. And, due to the multiple dents and scratches, it did fit in with the local population.Cons:The ad was for a convertible. There were no convertibles on the island at all --so that was misleading. We suspect the car had been totaled out by insurance due to the hurricane and was still be rented. The stains on the ceiling and seats on the interior were very suspicious for mold. The loose hubcap gave us sound effects throughout the trip. The broken tail lights, big dent in the back and multiple dents made it easy for us to not have to worry about damage to the car. The clearance was too low for most driveways in St. Thomas. They charged us for a full tank of gas even though we returned it full. And lastly, there was no way to contact Thrifty from the airport other than borrowing a phone from a local who had cell service. (Verizon does not work in the Islands). And then we waited 30 min for them to pick us up from the office less than a mile away.Reviewed 7 Jan. 2019

Pros:Staff was friendly enough.Cons:Pick up experience was not good, car was poor. Mid day while all other rental companies were present with shuttles, we had to call to get picked up at airport. All was prepaid on credit card so expected to simply sign for car, decline insurance, load up and go. However, initial car provided was not in lot where we were told it was so 4 of us spent about 10 mins in mid day heat after long flight with zero assistance from Thrifty searching lot for the was in a different part of lot, boxed in by another car, it had 2 flat tires so we had to switch cars. I did notice it had power convenience features but was significantly dinged and dented. Subsequent car had no power convenience features so manual windows and locks..locks was a pain since we had to continually remind each other to lock vehicle. Also car was severely under performing...major hesitation when stepping on gas, had a lot of trouble getting up hills on St. Thomas even when only a driver in car and I only weigh 190 lbs. This is not the quality of car that was advertised nor is it what I expect from Thrifty having used them for many years corporately.Reviewed 3 Nov. 2019

Pros:Short shuttle ride to the rental facility, quick check in processCons:The car made noise at some RPM level (vibration). I notified the agent when I returned the vehicle but it did not seem to matter.Reviewed 1 Jan. 2020

Cons:Pick up in the morning is horrible. I had to wait 40 minutes for the shuttle. When I was renting I heard another customer saying he waited 45 min for the shuttle. Another thing is that they never have your car ready. Yo always have to wait for the car to be cleaned.Reviewed 10 Nov. 2015

what you should knowPros:Car Was in very good conditionCons:Rental yard was small and overcrowded. Returning the car was difficult because you could even park the car in the gates. Had to stop on the street for over 15 minutes. When i got inside i need a taxi and the attendant couldn't even call one for me. Didn't even attempt to look. Great service! huh. I had a call and cancel my Allianz Car Rental insurance because they don't accept as a recognized insurance. So please don't get this when you book your car.Reviewed 30 Nov. 2016

Bait and switch advertisingCons:I reserved a convertible for 497 thru the kayak site. My reservation was immediately switched to a compact car for twice the price. Great deal of aggravation trying to get what I had reserved and was not successful I will never use kayak, priceline or thrifty again due to clear unethical advertising and policies.Reviewed 23 Dec. 2018

Car drove niceCons:Smelled so much like cigarettesReviewed 10 Feb. 2018
review fromkayak
Pros:It took several calls from us and others before Thrifty's shuttle showed up -- the shuttle is necessary, as the agency is several miles from the airport, but the wait was more like a half hour.Reviewed 18 Dec. 2016
review fromkayak
Long wait for the carCons:It took exceedingly long to get a shuttle and the phone numbers provided were not answered until after many calls. Explanation of what the optional insurance covered was extremely difficult to understand. They drive on the left so I opted to get coverage beyond my personal car insurance.Reviewed 4 Jan. 2019
review fromkayak
Vehicle not availableCons:When you request a full size car and are confirmed then arrive and find out one isn't available but you are already at the offsite location why confirm the carReviewed 8 Nov. 2016
