Check the hours carefully. Flight was delayed after take off and when we arrived, Thrifty was closed with no way to fulfill reservation.

The customer service representatives were not so nice. Otherwise I was very happy with the car.

They reserved my car online then they didn’t have a car when I got there and treated me like an idiot when I didn’t understand why I reserved a car and it wasn’t there. Calling me by my first name and asking”what did I expect it was the weekend” and go somewhere else.

I booked my Thrifty rental car two months ahead of time. I woke up at 4 AM to commute via public transportation to JFK in order to make my scheduled 6 AM pickup time. The staff were incredibly rude to all customers and stated that they were not going to be renting out any cars until at least 7 AM. By the time 7 AM rolled around, they had allowed many customers ahead of the individuals that arrived at 6 AM. There is no seating outside of the lobby or in the lobby so customers waiting for the staff to be ready were forced to sit on the concrete outside in December. My car reeked of cigarette smoke and had not been vacuumed prior to me being "handed" the keys. In fact, I was told to go wait at the end of the sidewalk for someone to hand me the keys but no one arrived so I went searching myself in the parking lot to find the car. I cross-referenced my receipt and the license plate then waited in the car just in case someone was coming to get me. No one did so I left. My only complaint after driving my dirty and smelly car off the lot was that the passenger's side air controls had gotten so hot at some point prior to me renting it. I could not figure out how to manipulate the air for my husband as the knob had melted off and fallen behind the vent. I extended my rental by a week so I have yet to do the dropoff portion but I am crossing my fingers that it is not as difficult as the pickup.

At the Thrifty pickup at JFK, there was only one worker on duty in the car service area. That meant that all three parties in line had to wait while he washed, sanitized and delivered one car, then went back to service the next.

Over 90 minute wait for a car? Who has ever heard of that? Not the line. The wait for the car after the line.

Long wait to pick up Pre-paid rental car, and the first 2 cars assigned to me were then taken back as I was finally preparing to drive off the lot, due to deferred maintenance issues. Also, I was kept On hold for over an hour and then disconnected when calling for emergency roadside assistance.

First, Kayak should not allow bookings if the rental car company cannot give a car for bookings made the day of. I had to travel 2 hours total to pickup the car only for people at the Dollar Rental to not give me a car bc I had booked 4 hours earlier. They said the wait would be 7 hours to get a rental car. So I had to come back the next day where the ladies at the counter were so rude and unhelpful. Had to wait for my car to be ready for an hour!! And then the cad wasn’t even that clean. Horrible.
2.0 MediocreMay 7 2022
We took an EZ pass for our rental period. When we came back we were charged over 200 dollar for toll. Total rip-off.
2.0 MediocreApr 24 2022
I called Priceline to change the date of the rental and was told that it would be fine, but when I got there to pick up the car the rental had not been changed and the dollar employee would not let me rent a car because she said she didn’t have enough to go one way to my destination.
2.0 MediocreApr 9 2022
I made the reservation on Kayak and received an email confirming my booking. I then called Dollar customer service to confirm that they had my reservation and a car for me to which they said yes. I explained that I did not want to go to their counter if they had no cars. She said not yo worry. They had a car waiting for me. When I arrived at the Dollar counter, the worker rudely told me they had no cars available. How?!! I just called less than 5 minutes ago and they confirmed my reservation. Her response - that’s what they say but I don’t have any car for you. All the other car rental companies where sold out. Literally left us stranded! What a rubbish company with rubbish service. If I could give them zero stars, I would. Do business with them at your own risk!

I accidentally booked the wrong day and they were able to work with me to find an available car on the spot.

They didn’t have the car ready for the time reserved. They told me they had a bigger car but I would have to pay an extra $75 per day. I asked if I could have that car for no extra cost since they didn’t have mine and was told no, if I didn’t want to pay for it I would just have to wait.

We have paid for a EZ-Pass but Dollar have don‘t give us a Transponder. In the States Indiana, Illinois and Iowa we have need the Transponder. We musst paid the Toll!!

Car was damaged in all 4 quarters at pickup. Also had a nail in one tire. They wouldn't answer the phone when I called to report it 5 min after pickup.
8.4 ExcellentJan 21 2020
Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.I normally don't opt for prepaid fuel but when the question of prepaid fuel came up I said that would be convenient since I didn't know of a gas station nearby (I have never rented a car from JFK Airport before). It turns out there is a gas station one block away from the rental drop off. It could not have been easier to get gas. Seems like the nice guy at the desk could have pointed that out.
5.2 OkayNov 25 2019
Staff very friendly and helpful on both pickup and drop offCar was in very poor condition (breaks very worn, windows did not function properly, poor wipers, car smelled like smoke)
2.0 MediocreOct 29 2019
Google Translation: When I arrived at the rental, I was told that because I was driving less than 25, it cost me $ 560 instead of the 130 I ordered and paid - even though I specifically wrote in the reservation that I was 23 !!!

Nothing. The worts experience I have ever had renting a car.I had a confirmed reservation for a Minivan. Once I got to the airport office, they just told "We don't have the minivan, rent in another location'
5.6 OkaySep 24 2019
Ez pass should be inlcuded in rent contract and not proposed separately to tourists that have no notion on how pervasive toll roads are in and around New York. To not include it is just a scam.

The car drove well.The rep never looked me in the eye during pick up or drop off: he spoke to the iPad and computer screen. I had to ask for the car to be washed. I waited for almost an hour between arrival and departure. Reps argued amongst each other. The entire office seems unprofessional and needs training.
9.6 ExcellentSep 12 2017
Happy customerCustomer service was second to none! The offer for pick up and drop off was very much appreciated. And the manager of the location that served me even have me extra two hours to return the car without surcharge when I called to inform them that I was in traffic. Awesome!Nothing at all.
9.6 ExcellentDec 3 2016
Friendly staff, good serviceGenuinely friendly staff who made sure all the customers were attended to and that everything was correct. They were able to give me a ride back to the subway when I dropped off the car, which was great since the place is a bit out of the way. The car was in great shape and didn't give me any problems. Will definitely be open to going back here for my next rental.The lot is hard to maneuver multiple cars in so at both pickup and drop off there was a bit of a wait to be able to get in/out. They also have pretty short hours(especially on weekends).

Shame on me for trusting HertzGranted, I picked up my car on Dec 23rd, which is a busy day given the upcoming holidays. But top to bottom, my experience was poor, at best. I booked at Inwood and received several conflicting messages directing me to pick up in Lynnbrook. The staff at Lynnbrook encountered a series of customers prior to my arrival and post my arrival, all of whom had varying levels of difficulty obtaining their rentals. I'm sure the jobs performed by these staff members is challenging, but their ability to mitigate the situation, deescalate, and treat paying customers with respect was nearly non-existent. When I returned my car to Inwood, I learned for the first time that Lynnbook staff was required to offer me a pick - up. No such offer was ever made. Also, the next day, I received a call from the Inwood office indicating that I had left an item behind in the car. I called back upon receiving the message and was told the rep who had contacted me was next in the office the following week, and that I should call back then. To be clear: no one told me what the recovered item was, or made any attempt to contact the rep who initially called me. The burden was placed squarely on me to perform diligent follow-up. As id I was the employee who worked for Hertz. Perhaps not a big deal in isolation. But this occurrence underscores a company wide culture which devalues customers time and expectations. I left feeling my purchase was not valued, that my time was unimportant and that the staff was not in attendance to assist me. I see no reason I should rent from Hertz again. Given that I rented another car earlier today, I can confirm I am acting on this self-imposed mandate.

Weekend RentalIt was nice car and drove perfectly fine. I might decide to buy that car now.The only thing I didn't like was the under 25 fee.
