4.4 OkayJul 19 2019
Pros: Staff was somewhat friendlyCons: We didn't realize Avis closed several hours midday. After waiting 1.5 hours for staff to return from lunch, it took well over 30 minutes to "book," mostly upselling insurance, added mileage, bigger cars. The car was more like a go-cart, honestly didn't know they made them like that!
4.8 OkayMar 23 2019
Pros: The car didn't break down.Cons: I have never driven a more gutless car. Security system was bothersome. Extra kilometers were expensive. Sold me double accident insurance.
10.0 ExcellentDec 4 2018
12 day car rentalPros: Booked through kayak and got a great deal. It was extremely easy to upgrade the vehicle once we were there. Best part about the experience was Elke our reception/organizer. She was amazing to work with, super helpful, fluent in English, and even assisted us mid trip with communicating with transito.
8.0 ExcellentMar 3 2017
Pros: Staff in Manta were very helpful. Office was comfortable. Car was in good condition. Thorough pre-rental inspection. $10/day unlimited kilometers is a bargain.Cons: Terms listed online were not a perfect match with what we found on site. Requirement for a $5000 credit card hold was a surprise.

Pros: NothingCons: Could not rent the car
3.2 MediocreApr 10 2018
Pros: The only good thing about this experience was that they offered to switch the vehicle they gave me with the van I reserved; and they delivered it to where we were staying, but it was halfway through our trip and we had already done almost all of our driving in a VERY uncomfortable SUV .Cons: > I was not given the van I was told on my receipt that I ordered. The small SUV they gave me BARELY fit all of us and our luggage - which we had to have under our feet and on our laps - very dangerous and EXTREMELY uncomfortable. > They offered to switch the vehicle with the van I ordered - which they had rented to someone else - halfway through our trip. We accepted, but we had already done 90% of our driving in the small SUV. Not really helpful. > I had to spend an additional $25/day (amounting to another $300) for insurance, although I had already purchased a plan through Alliance, which was suggested when I booked the vehicle online. There was nothing that stated this was not going to be valid in Ecuador, but that's what I was told and as a result I HAD to purchase the other insurance. HORRIBLE, EXPENSIVE EXPERIENCE
4.4 OkayJun 6 2017
Car insurance way too high and mandatory even if you have onePros: Car was clean and pick up / dropoff was fast.Cons: I reserved the car via Internet indicating that I did not need insurance (I have one included with my credit card for car rental). Once on site, they obligated me to take the insurance which almost doubled the cost. Very frustrating and once you are there, you almost have no choice, especially when you arrive late at night.
6.4 GoodJan 18 2017
"MANDATORY INSURANCE" COST MORE THAN RENTAL!Pros: Clean car. Reliable car.Cons: Much older than car advertised. Waived insurance on online form. Rented car for $200. Paid nearly $250 for $800 worth of "mandatory insurance."
2.0 MediocreNov 6 2016
Bad service, old, dented carPros: We could rent the car for two days during the holidays.Cons: We could not pick up the car without purchasing the I sureance of sixt. We already purchased an insurance during the booking of the car, so we had to pay double. I called customer service but they were no help at all and costed me even more due to the I ternational calls. Please don't sell insurances that later are not accepted by the car rental office. This is pure deception.

Pros: Wrong car, charged extra day than had vehicleCons: Use bilingual staff in international airports
2.0 MediocreJan 14 2019
Charged and lied toPros: NothingCons: No car available. They offered to drop us at our destination and bring the car the next day. Didnt show. 2 days later a car (NOT one that worked for us) was left at our address. We called the office to refuse it. They said thethey were bringing the correct one and just to wait. Never showed! We were still charged!!! Office almost never answered the phone and when they did they were rude.
2.0 MediocreDec 10 2018
Thrifty should really look into its Ecuador location!! Terrible!!Cons: 1st my reservation was made about 5 months before my trip and per the reservation I would get a Tahoe or something similar. When I arrive the Thrifty clerk says they don’t work with Tahoe’s and that my reservation would be for a Suzuki Vitara and if I wanted an upgrade it would cost me twice as much as what my reservation was made. 2nd even though my credit card offered insurance for international rentals (I called my credit card to confirm this before I left the country and they said the country I was going to was covered for rentals) Thrifty made me buy their insurance or I could not rent the vehicle! I was traveling with my wife and 2 kids (toddler and infant) so I had no choice at that point but to pay the extra or I would have to waist more time at the airport after a almost 12 hour flight and it was getting late. 3rd because none of my credit cards have the numbers in the front (no cards in the US have them anymore!! At least the new ones don’t!) I had to pay an extra $1000 deposit which they said they would return once I returned the vehicle. When I returned the vehicle they then said it would be 2 weeks before they returned my deposit to make sure I didn’t get any tickets on the vehicle. We are now over 2 weeks and they still have not returned my $1000 deposit! Also the car was all scratched and dinged up all around!! They AC vent on the driver side was broken!! Bottom line! Thrifty in Ecuador is terrible!! They should really do something about this location! Makes their company look bad! Will never rent from them again!
2.0 MediocreAug 2 2018
Bad Service!!! Car that was Reserved they didn't have.Pros: Nothing!Cons: Service and attitude of the 2 ladies was awful. The reserved Tahoe or similar was a small compact car that we couldn't put luggage in. Rented from Alamo and the were excellent!!
2.0 MediocreJul 4 2018
Bait and SwitchPros: Airport LocationCons: Would not rent to me unless I took the "optional" collisions damage waver at $25 per day. I had several credit cards offering CDW with over $10K credit. All we're rejected. Thrifty is a rip off.
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2018
Terribly totally a scam mediocresPros: None BAD BAD PAGAR TANTO DINERO POR UNA BASURA DE CARRO HUECOS EN LA CONSOLA, VOLANTE en mala condicion higuienica FUE UN ROBOCons: Old car very bad experience tires bad shape no chargers i would like at least a refunds i pay for a 7 passenger car and it was 5 passenger What a scamers I hope the owner of the company triffty see this messages
10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2018
EasyPros: Car was good and the check in/out smooth.
2.0 MediocreMay 18 2018
Cons: cancelled at counter when they informed me that no third party could be used for insurance and that the online price of ~$80 would now be closer to $300 based on Ecuador rules........this should be IN BOLD LETTERS when booking!!!! Waste of time. The cost of taxis is very cheap in Guayaquil and was easily much less than the $300 for the week i was there.
2.0 MediocreJan 13 2018
Total ripoffCons: Total ripoff. This guys advertise a price but never actually commit to it. Please be careful. I would recomend not having them on your site They state that your reservation is no longer valid because you never paid in advance. Obviouly, the offer a 10x more expensive option. I never got the car with them. It was such a waist of time
2.0 MediocreDec 27 2017
PriceCons: Thrifty makes you get an insurance that costs 25 a day and they put a hold on your credit card of 1500 to 3000 depending on the car.

Worst Experience Ever- Do not rent Hertz in Ecuador- GuayaquilPros: NothingCons: 1. Customer Service 2. Didn't honor the reservation booked & to get a car asked for more $ to rent directly even though reservation booked was active 3. Manager would not come out to speak to us 4. Pick-up was hell & drop off wasn't any easier 5. The car looked bad as it seemed to been in 2 accidents on the outside & the inside was dirty. Hadn't been cleaned. Had to take it to get it cleaned just to feel ok in it. 6. The car didn't come with full tank of gas 7. They changed the policies rules upon arrival even though we had a confirmed & active reservation, they said they cancelled it, they received no contact information & to rent a car it was way more money. It was like a scam to rent you a car at higher rate not honor the reservation in system.
