Cons:An absolutely miserable pickup experience. Rented a suburban to be picked up at 7am, left with a smaller suv at 9am.Reviewed 8 Jun. 2020

Pros:Keep prices as regularCons:All the experience was great, but hiking the rental prices ($375 for a day) is agresiveReviewed 20 Apr. 2021

Pros:In San Antonio there was a a wait as staff were short handed. Once we met with the staff the whole process was excellent and the staff were helpful and friendly.Cons:Advise of different hours of staffing in McAllen would have been helpful.Reviewed 26 Jan. 2021

Nice vehicle for the price!Pros:The vehicle (GMC Yukon 2019) was great and served our purpose while visiting our son in the Air Force. Loved the cooling seats during the 90 degree 90% humidity and then heated when the temp dropped to 47 our last day!Cons:The third row had NO leg room for our older kids and had to put the littlest one back there. We did not receive any direction on the vehicle usage...(how to put the seats down with the buttons, if the middle seats adjusted back and forth, how to use the touch screen or what was available through it! We had to take the time to read manuals and “play around” to figure things out ourselves. We had “requested” a Ford as we are familiar with their systems.Reviewed 21 Oct. 2018

Pros:EverythingCons:Give people the choice of what type of gas they prefer (i.e. regular gas vs E85). Not many gas stations carry E85, almost ran out of petro.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2020

Pros:NoneCons:Contacting thrifty was a pain in the ButtReviewed 21 Jul. 2020

Cons:I waited over an hour for a vehicle, there were dozens of vehicles that had not been cleaned, many were waiting for a vehicle to be cleaned so we could pick up, Billing is confusing, two different receipts neither made any sense. Cost should be clear and transparent!Reviewed 12 Nov. 2019

Cons:Price could have been more reasonable.Reviewed 2 Apr. 2018

Cons:Hidden fees. Unavailable cars. No mention of credit card hold.Reviewed 28 Oct. 2019

Didn't even get my vehiclePros:Local rental (I know kind of weird to rent from the airport, but pickup truck rental availability can be scarce/expensive) You can't use a debit card for your reservation with them unless you have a departing flight itinerary. So a local person couldnt use a debit card for their car rental. Seems like such a silly policy that should be stated somewhere on my reservation, so time and effort isn't wasted.Cons:Everything about my experience. Lady was short and kind of rude like I was wasting her time, the system for picking up itself is awful. Once again, I get its the airport location, just think local reservations should be respected as well, especially when dealing with a vehicle outside of your typical sedans.Reviewed 16 Sep. 2018
