Pros: Attentive service; offered a substitute full size car because the compact I reserved was not available. Good business hours.
Cons: The drop off-processing took a little longer than I expected. I was glad I was the only one there and didn't have to wait in line.

No car despite reservation
Pros: not one thing.
Cons: We arrived to the airport only to learn that there was no car available for us despite holding a reservation for weeks. No notification. No offer to remedy the situation. Terrible service. Will never use Thrifty again.

Left me stranded
Pros: After making the reservation with Kayak, Throfty car rental ended up not having any cars available once I checked in at the counter in Syracuse. It was after 11pm. Luckily I was able to get another car with another rental company but paid a lot more.
Cons: Feel like I can't trust a Kayak car rental reservation
Nov 29 2015
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: No manual in car, no insurance or registration paperwork, car was not clean, did not run right, evidence of smoking in car from previous renters.
Oct 11 2016
Cons: We reserved a Full size and it was too small so had to upgrade and it cost us more. Don't feel the Ford Full size is a true FULL size car

Happy with Thrifty
Pros: The car was ready on time and the staff person completed all the paperwork quickly. The car was nicer than expected. They didn't have the class of car that we reserved so they gave us a free upgrade. We thought we were going to get something like a Toyota Corolla but they gave us a Honda Accord instead.

Mar 8 2017
Pros: Price was okay and woman at check in desk was very nice and efficient.
Cons: Car was full of air freshener. Horrible! Had to drive with windows down in 30 degree weather. Smell got in my clothes and made me feel sick. would have returned but no time to go back out to airport.
Mar 14 2017
Pros: The car was new clean well equipped and very comfortable
Cons: When I returned the car they added a $4.99 per day trip saver fee. I h ad a flat tire and called Thrifty and Joe told me to call AAA. I had to find an exact match of the tire or pay for the tire and pay again to replace it on return. I finally found someone who had a match for the tire over 30 miles away while driving on a donut. I lost a day of traveling time and had an extremely hard time finding a hotel as it was Paris Island Marine Boot Camp Training Graduation weekend. I finally found a room at Country Inn and Suites in Beaufort S.C. (the management there gave us a room with little water pressure but it beat sleeping in the car because we couldn't drive on the spare Thank Goodness for them) So I ask what is the $4.99 per day Trip saver fee when I am told to call my own triple AAA.

Carol was awesome!
Pros: Carol, the receptionist in Syracuse at pick-up was phenomenal! Engaging, knowledgeable and helpful.
Rate was incredible and size of car for the metal class was great.
Maybe the best rental car experience I have had.
Nov 27 2016
Cons: Our flight was delayed by over an hour and by the time we landed the rental counter was closed. I was unable to contact them due to the fact that I followed the rules by turning my cell phone off once the cabin door was closed. I feel that hertz should ensure all flights are in prior to closing. I call customer service and told it was completely my fault and I was left stranded over 60 miles from final destination. I was only told to get a hotel room and wait til morning. This would all have cost me more money that I was not willing to spend. I will never rent from hertz again even as a last resort.
Jan 4 2017
Cons: Did not mention details for each service cost.
I ended up with a $1000 bill for only a-week rent.
Feb 17 2017
Pros: Friendly staff. On site vehicle. Quick service on pick up and return
Mar 1 2017
Pros: Comfortable little car with some nice acessories. I would rent that size again.
Cons: Did not like the color. Black showed a lot of dirt. Do not like the gas feature of when the car is idling and turns off car to conserve gas.
May 30 2017
A plus service
Pros: The ease of pick up and returns.
Jun 6 2017
Pros: After I got re-routed to a different airport, my 24-year-old son had to pick up our car instead. I was worried because I thought you had to be 25 to rent. There was a small fee associated with it, but he was able to pick up our car with no problems, last minute. Thank you!

It was great price and service
Pros: Van was ready to go, it was proper clean . Sll the paperwork done in less than 5 minutes which is great.
The price I got it was best.
Cons: Nothing was that what I did not like.
Oct 13 2016
Pros: An upgraded vehicle was ready for pickup as scheduled.
Pros: It only took about 15 mins. total to check in and pick up car. Not pushy on insurance or extras. Vehicle was excellent, not one problem. got an SUV and the gas mileage was much better than expected.
Cons: I wish he'd spent a little more time showing me the important accessories, it started to rain on the way home and I couldn't figure out the wipers until I got home, but I did know how to drop the back seats and turn on the seat warmers. Some of this on me, I was in a hurry. Overall, great experience.
Aug 21 2016
Pros: Everything was great, Thanks
Aug 23 2016
Pros: Car was great. Drove well. Was clean
Cons: Pick-up in Syracuse was long. I had the advantage of the line getting shorter when a customer left to get a car elsewhere
No one was available to check car in at Rochester.
Waited over 10 minutes. Ended up leaving keys on counter
Jan 31 2017
Pros: How easy it was to pick up and deliver.

Apr 3 2017
Pros: Friendly staff, quick check in and out. Car was clean. Every person I encountered made sure I was satisfied.
Jun 13 2017
Cons: I reserved a compact car, but they could only offer me a pickup truck or a minivan. The minivan was nice and well equipped, but I would have preferred to have the vehicle I reserved instead.
Cons: Two hours into a drive that should have taken 4.5hours the transmission started to fail and there was no acceleration. Called roadside assistance but because I was in rural NY there were no pick-up locations nearby. I rented this vehicle to make a flight out of LGA and if I had waited for roadside assistance to finally get to me I would miss the flight. Despite repeatedly "resetting" the transmission I was only able to drive 40mph and even slower uphill. The drive was unsafe and unpleasant and what was a 4.5 hour drive became a 6 hour drive.
