Costa Rica Insurance ScamPros:The vehicle ran and did what it was supposed to.Cons:Read the fine print in your rental agreement. You might think you are getting a great deal until they force you to buy insurance from them stating that they do not accept any third party, this in my case more than doubled my rate. Very smug about the whole deal with a don't care attitude because they know they have you. He offered on more than one occasion to cancel the reservation.....sure I just arrived in a foreign country, don't know my way around....let me cancel it. This was by far the absolute worst rental car experience I have ever had in any country. Would never recommend Thrifty to anyone there or in the USA again. They have lost a customer for life.Reviewed 21 Mar. 2017

Cons:When I arrived at the counter to pick up the car I was told purchasing the rental car's insurance was NOT optional, I had to purchase one of two plans, otherwise they would not rent the car to me. If the insurance was not optional, then it should have been shown in the original price of renting the car. A definite bait & switch which I didn't appreciate. $300 for the car, $250 for the insurance, kind of changes the value of the rental.Reviewed 12 Mar. 2020

Credit Card information stolen from Thrifty Car RentalPros:Good clean carCons:Highly inflated "full coverage" price My credit card information was stolen from rental agency and within one hour of leaving Thifty with our rental car, 4 (FOUR) fraudulent charges appeared on card. Thifty was the one and only time the credit card ever left my secure "scan-safe" metal wallet. Fortunately, Visa noticed the "irregular" charges and froze the card. But, very disappointed. Don't risk it!Reviewed 7 Jun. 2017

Sucks!!Pros:Nothing!! Never again!!Cons:My mom passed away so I had to leave earlier then planned. They were going to charge me for turning the car in early. So....i left and my wife turned the car in for me and they charged me $50 because I wasn't there to turn it in. If they are the last rental car company with a car.....i will walk.Reviewed 27 Oct. 2017
