Up until the endPros:The customer service agent during pickup was awesome. She was warm and friendly. Great experience there.Cons:The drop off was cold. I saw an attendant and said "hi" then asked her if there was a key drop box because I was not familiar with Thrifty's return process. She responded with "they're getting to me." The attendant made it appear that she was annoyed by my arrival to return the vehicle. Not sure if customer service classes are included with their training but, if it isn't then it should be incorporated. Like any business, this experience will weigh heavily on my choice to become a repeat customer.Reviewed 25 Mar. 2017

Easily duped into paying 60% above my quoted/confiPros:The vehicle was fine. The price would have been a good value for the money exept...Cons:First time I had used Kayak to reserve a car. Kayak's reservation made it really easy to add an additional driver. However, it did not highlight the fact that there would be large charges to add a driver. (yes, it was in the fine print at the bottom :( It put the reservation in the add'l driver's name, not mine, so we at first ended up being told I had not reservation. In the end we ended up paying nearly twice the amount quoted on my reservation confirmation. The Thrifty agent made no mention of the large additional fees, and we missed it until after we returned the car. Not a great reservation/customer service experience. I will still with my tried and true car rental reservation site after this.Reviewed 29 Oct. 2016

Never againCons:Whenevet I travel with my husband we always use National Car Rental. Never have trouble and I should have stayed with what I know! I was trying to find something a little less expensive and decided to use kayak. I was traveling with a neighbor and were told to stay away from Dollar Rental so I booked Thrifty. Come to find out they are the same company and now I know why she made steered us away from them! Our $180 car rental turned into $490 when it was all done. We did upgrade our vehicle to an SUV but that only $15/day for the five days we had the car. They scam you with the insurance, which come to find out we never needed because our own insurance company would have covered any problems. They tell you that even if you have your own insurance if something happens to the car you are reasonable for the daily rental fee (at full price) for each day the car is being repaired. When in fact, our insurance car company would cover all of that. I did not do enough research for partly my fault but I will never rent with Thrifty (or Dollar) again. The agents were rude and not the least bit helpful. We traveled with 16 families and three others who used Thrifty had nothing good to say.Reviewed 3 May 2017

Feel Ripped OffPros:Actually like the car...a HundaiCons:The cost!! Booked online with a $440+ Including fees (which are the worst anywhere!!). Our Flight was delayed a day and called to advise when we would be in...representative said we would get a credit for a day. When got to airport in the evening only one person able to help Thrifty and Dollar customers. ....she saw the notes for the call, but said we had 24 hours to pick up car and hence no credit?! Then we were advised if traveling in South Florida had to have Sunrise pass or would be charged penalty every time used toll roads. That was another $10 a day...now somehow the bill was going to be over $800...it looked like we were charged fees all over again!! Our final price was over $600....very unhappy...felt taken advantage of!!Reviewed 7 Apr. 2017
