Pros: MPG was good. Searched for car at the airport and online had several choices. When I chose one it had airport right by the address, so I booked it. The day before the flight Emily calls to confirm. I again asked if this was the airport. She said no, but said she would call them and move it over. No mention that it would cost about $100 more than the $157 it was already that included a $92 fee for returning at a different location. I get to Chattanooga airport and they have no record of my reservation. Had I not had the email it would have been worse.

They didn't have a car.
Cons: I showed up and they said they were out of cars. They said they intended to call me and let me know but didn't. They said they allowed me to make the rental even though they didn't have s car because I went through Kayak. I won't be using Kayak or Enterprise again.

Poor customer service
Pros: The car was good.
Cons: My flight was late and I tried to call. I kept getting agent must be busy. Tried a few minutes later and was told office had been closed. When I called the main 800 number I was told it was in the same cubicle as Nation and the agent could rent both companies vehicles when I get to Chattanooga.
When I landed I was told I had reserved a car in town and not the airport and the Airport rate was far different than the one I had reserved. I typed in Chattanooga when I made reservations and it was the only thing that came up.
My $202.00 reserve cost me around $495.00. It was after 11:00 PM and I was presenting at a conference the next day in another town. I was not in the position to argue.
If I treated customers the way I was her I would spend more time in court than managing the business. If I had customers at all.
Would you be happy?

Not at airport
Pros: price of rental reasonable.
Cons: when I got car it only had 1/8 of tank of gas. Had to take time to fill up in pouring rain. Already running 30 min late because I had to wait to be delivered to off airport location.
Apr 30 2017
Pros: Michael was helpful and gave me a free upgrade.
Cons: Enterprise wanted over double the price to rent a car at the airport. So. Had to rent a car from an office 7 miles from the airport, luckily I had a ride to get there.

Great customer service

Unknowingly upgraded with an upgraded price
Cons: I booked a compact car and given a Nissan Sentra - did not know this was a mid-size and was then charged for a mid-size. Front license plate falling off and smelled like there were smokers in the car previously and covered up with a fragrance spray.
Cons: The price was a little steep for just having the car under 24 hrs,

Nov 6 2016
Pros: Ended up with a nice, comfortable vehicle with all the bells and whistles.
Cons: They had originally given me a with a warning light on. After I insisted that the sales person sign something releasing me and stating that she told me that the vehicle was okay to drive, she decided to give me an upgrade instead.

Pros: The easiest rental companies we have dealt with.

Great service. Not so clean car
Pros: Service and price was great.
Cons: Was a pretty bad odor coming from the trunk. Sprayed twice with frebreeze and still was bad. Someone should have caught a smell that bad before renting the car!!
Nov 29 2016
Pros: Overall, 99% was excellent. Thank you.
Cons: I hit a heavy rain on my way home to Memphis. The windshield wipers were horrible. I recommend either replacing them more frequently or applying RainX to the windshield. Ensuring the safety of your driver should be a priority.

Feb 13 2017
Pros: The price and quality of the car was goodi.
Cons: I did not like that my non-smoking car was smoky.
Feb 27 2017
Cons: I needed a little more help when I returned my car
Apr 3 2017
Pros: Upgraded car.
Cons: Car was no smoking but reeked of cigarette smoke :(
Cons: I had scheduled a smaller vehicle so that gas mileage would be good. When I got to the rental office desk, I was told that they didn't have any of the smaller vehicles so I would be getting a larger vehicle. I was then asked where I was going and when I said Maryland and Pennsylvania I was told that those states might be (I'm not sure of the exact terminology) extended mileage states. Upon checking, I was told that I would have to pay $20 a day for my 7 day rental. When I pointed out that I read that I would have unlimited mileage I was told that there was "small print" that mentioned about the extended mileage states. (This is not "unlimited mileage" and I believe it to be deceptive advertising) I was finally offered a "truck" for $10 extra per day which I declined due to gas mileage issues. I asked for my cards back, called for my ride to return and waited 30 minutes in the night air to be picked up. I scheduled a rental with another company when I got home and left the next morning without a hitch. I did tell the worker at Thrifty that I felt they would lose a lot of business with this deceptive advertising and I stand by that. I know they lost my business that night.

Pros: Good price, friendly staff, car had nice amenities
Cons: My car smelled like cigarette smoke, I had to wait at the airport for 10 minutes to be picked up, and I had to wait when I got to the hub to be waited on when I was first renting my car.

Awesome Jeep for phenomenal price
Pros: This is the second time I've rented with them and both times I've gotten the free upgrade to brand new Jeeps! The Jeeps were immaculate and the service was very friendly.

Doesn't accept ALL debit cards
Pros: The truck was well maintained and got a pretty decent deal.
Cons: They didn't specify that not all kinds of debit cards are accepted. Even when I attempted to pay my deposit and thought I had, the rep didn't tell me the card or the payment weren't accepted. Also if you are using someone else's credit card to pay, they have to be added as a driver even if they aren't driving or even going on your trip. That is ridiculous to have to pay the additional driver daily fee for someone not even driving!
Apr 18 2017
Pros: The return lady was very nice
Cons: Hidden fees. hundreds of documents signing away my life. Paid extra for 'extra mileage use', felt like they wanted money and nothing else.
Apr 18 2017
Pros: The ease of booking line and price. I had never used Kayak before but will use you in the future
Apr 25 2017
Inaccurate price Wuote
Cons: When I arrived to the rental place and told them I was driving out of state they told me the price would be triple what I was quoted and it would be best to rent a different car. I ended up not renting from a Thrifty.

No Problems and a Credit!
Pros: It was ready when we arrived. Brand new Dodge Caravan, with updated features. We returned it 4 hours early and received a full day credit. Drop off was even easier than pick up. Again, we had no issues at the Thrifty Rental in Chattanooga, TN.
Cons: The only issue was with the vehicle. The Caravan has blind spots at the back row side doors. You can watch your mirrors, yet never know a car is flanking you. You must swivel your head before changing lanes. Other than that, I almost would want to purhase a minivan!!!
Cons: Car had almost 30,000 miles on it and showed signs of no maintenance or care. Smelled randomly of burnt oil in the car so I had to constantly stop and keep a check on engine oil. Had a rattle inside rear door that started getting louder from 45mph up. Took over an hour to pick up car and took almost the same time dropping it off so I could inform them of the issues.
this was my first attempt at using another rental company other than enterprise and was frustrating to say the least. I have never had to take more then 15 minutes at their locations to have the car and be on the road. I have also never had an issue with one of their cars mechanicals noting most of their cars are under 15,000 miles and seemed to be washed and vacuumed much better.
Car did not break down or require any maintenance on the road however I did have to keep a constant eye on oil etc to make sure there wasnt an issue going on. I informed them when I dropped off the car that it shouldnt go back out until being checked out and what the issues where and they did not seem suprised or concerned and simply knocked off my upgrade price of $30 for a 8 day rental.
