Pros:My family was impacted by COVID and we had to cancel. Priceline who your website booked me through refused to refund the deposit🙄. I lost almost $300 over this, it’s ridiculous, especially during a pandemic.Cons:At least given me credit for future useReviewed 2 Dec. 2020

90 minute wait to get a car meant hitting rush hour trafficPros:The vehicle was clean and in great shape.Cons:After a reasonable wait in line to check in (maybe 20 minutes), I tried using a kiosk to pick up our vehicle. The representative was very friendly, but ultimately told us that inventory was low, and we could either upgrade to a premium vehicle (for more money) or downgrade to a smaller car (with no rebate), and suggested I get back in line to speak with a representative at the counter. After another wait in line, I spoke with a representative who was impolite and chastised us for getting on the road right at rush hour (after trying for over an hour at that point to pick up our vehicle). We had another brief wait while they prepared a car for us - altogether, it took nearly an hour and a half to get on the road.Reviewed 16 Jul. 2018

Cons:I had a truly terrible experience across several aspect of renting from this Thrifty/Hertz. For one, there was a line of ~30 patrons trying to check out vehicles when I arrived, with exactly one agent handling that line. The line alone took over an hour. Second, the car itself was the cheapest Hyundai they make, a far cry from the Ford Focus that the website promised, and the rear view mirror fell off seconds after I got in the car for the first time. Third, although I confirmed with the agent at the counter that I would be charged for two days for the times of my checkout and return, and followed those times exactly, I was charged for three days without a clear notification that the terms had been changed. I waited for an hour to talk to a representative in the billing department, who told me to return to the rental location and try to find to the agent who had promised the two-day rate. If that were even possible it would be a multi-hour nightmare given how understaffed they are. I would not rent from this company and location again, and urge you not to either.Reviewed 6 Jul. 2020

Pros:Staff was friendly.Cons:Thrifty over book their cars. There were more than 50 people waiting on cars and they said it would take 2-4 hours to get a car. I ended up having to cancel and book a higher priced car on another agency as I couldn't wait 4 hours to get a car.Reviewed 18 Feb. 2021

Pros:We reserved a minivan that was not available when we arrived at the airport rental -- an hour after the reservation time. Were never told in advance the minivan was not available and were told we would would have to wait an hour or so with no guarantees. We had no choice but to rent a regular vehicle, which, when we received our initial invoice, did not even have an adjusted rate. Don't know if this was caused in part by reserving through Kayak, but we will never reserve with Thrifty again and, perhaps, not througn Kayak either.Reviewed 8 Sep. 2017
