8.0 ExcellentApr 12 2021
Pros: Yes
4.0 OkayFeb 12 2021
Pros: Pick up and drop off was perfectCons: The car was awful. Windshield wipers were broken as well as no fluid so very hard to drive in the snow
10.0 ExcellentJan 27 2021

10.0 ExcellentJan 25 2021
Pros: The dealership car choice, the price, and the customer service was phenomenal.Cons: The cleanliness to the rentals could be improved
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2021
Pros: The price was good but not worth the troubles.Cons: Got to thrifty and assigned car. Opened car door to be greeted with an overwhelming weed/skunk smell. Went back to counter and got different car assigned. Went to that car and opened door and it to was overwhelming with weed smell. Went back to counter and assigned third car. No smell thankfully so hightailed out. A couple miles down the road and the tire pressure light came on. Stopped at two gas stations to fill with air ( first one air out of commission). Fixed temporarily. Had to fill with air about every 12 hours. Finally third day I took to tire place and they took a screw out and patched it. Also the gas fuel door would not stay shut so I adjusted latch and then stuck until pried open. Also cruise control worked intermittently. It was all very uncomforting. Was very glad to have made it home. Also though I had signed up for or paid insurance at $11 per day but they had no record of it.
2.0 MediocreDec 30 2020
Pros: The lobby of the pick-up site was dirty and the bathrooms are in need of a deep cleaning and repairs.Cons: There was only one person on the counter at 3PM. Kept answering the phone and prolonged my pick-up. It did not make me feel like an important customer with all of the interruptions.
2.0 MediocreDec 15 2020
Pros: Nothing at allCons: The car was old a raggedy brakes where trouble the car pulled and made noise
8.0 ExcellentDec 15 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly, the shutter driver was the best when he picked me up at the airport and the lady when dropped me off at the airport. The lady in their office was good, I am still learning English and she helped me all the time, tried to understand me and helped during all the process to rent a car. It was my first time renting a car, I will come back if I need it. Thank you very much to Thrifty for everything.Cons: I think in my visit everything was excellent for me. The place was very clean, they gave me the car very fast and the drop off was easy.
2.0 MediocreDec 13 2020
Cons: Car was not in proper working order - the driver side door either had a bad seal or would not close tightly and there was very loud road noise during highway driving.
2.0 MediocreNov 30 2020
Pros: They were CLOSED when I arrived in St Louis. I was never told a car would not be available at the time of my arrival, which I did indicate in the reservation. I had to get a ride from the Dollar Rental company and pay more for a last minute reservation with Dollar. A LOT more. I will never rent from Thrifty again.Cons: Indicate your hours. Don't allow the reservation to be confirmed when a traveler is arriving outside business hours.

2.0 MediocreJul 16 2020
Pros: I got a refund.Cons: When I went to pick up the car (spending cab money), the location was closed until further notice. I spent an hour on hold to see what could be done, but enterprise just canceled the reservation. So I had no car and had to spend more money to get back to where I was staying. I won’t be using either service again, for obvious reasons.
8.0 ExcellentJan 18 2017

2.0 MediocreAug 13 2018
Pros: PriceCons: The car wasn't ready. Had to wait over an hour. Then they tried to make you get an upgrade for more money
2.0 MediocreMar 14 2017
Car broke down instantly!!!!!Pros: The first time I attempted to start the car after picking it up it engine light came on and it would not turn over. I had the road side assistance pick up the vehicle and called the hertz location. They said the would call me back when the vehicle arrived there and never did. I missed my window to be able to drive to a wedding and had to by a plane ticket at the last minute costing 500 more dollars than I intended on spending. I will never use them again!
4.4 OkayFeb 28 2017
Inexperienced ExperiencePros: Location and convenience near my house.Cons: Pickup:Wasted an 30 minutes picking up my rental because the gentlemen entered the expiration date on my card multiple times. Car reeked of cigarettes. Passenger window need to be realigned. It made an irritating whistling sound if I drove on the highway. Drop-off: Lady try to charge me an extra 55 dollars for returning the car a quarter tank short. On a Nissan Sentra that would fill up with less than half that amount. She accepted my $10 bill and we moved on. Which I was perplexed even more because the dispute didn't take long. It was if she was just trying to get more money out of me. Not even sure she followed company policy, whether right or wrong.
