Cons: The "agent" at the location could have cared less about any problems or concerns you had. When I mentioned the stains all over the fabric of the car, no reponse, when I asked if they even tried to clean the vehicle, no response. He didn't really know company policy when asked about insurance, tolls or adding a second driver to the vehicle. Also they charged triple the rental amount as a "deposit" which there is no mention of in the rental agreement. When I asked the agent about it, same response, meh

Poor Drop Off
Cons: When we arrived to drop the car, we were able to locate the parking spaces for drop off, however, there was no attendant to turn the car over to. We went inside and found a long line of people at the counter that were renting cars. We needed to catch our flight so we went to another rental car desk (Hertz maybe) that had a shorter line and they were helpful in recording our mileage and taking our keys so that we could leave. The drop off procedure needs to be evaluated with the outbound flight customers in mind.

Never using Budget again!
Cons: Budget delayed checking in the car by 24 hours charging us a $10 late fee and then said we didn't fill up the car when our contract said 3/4 and was 2 gallons shy of full but charged us $45 anyways. Sanford airport staff unpleasant and not willing to own up to their error. Will never use Budget again!
Jan 18 2016
Pros: Price was great! What a deal.

Jan 31 2016

Jan 31 2016
Pros: Brand new vehicle. Clean. Check in was easy - right across from terminal. No shuttle needed. Easy process. Recommend Budget for car rentals at Sanford/Orlando airport.

Will NEVER rent from Budget again
Cons: Even though we had a confirmation number, the man said they always overbook and we would only get a car if other customers who booked before us didn't show. Well, they showed so we didn't get a vehicle!
Pros: Price wasn't bad. Attitude from attendant was uncalled for.
Cons: When picking up. We were late since our flight was delayed. She talked to me like I had committed a crime for being late. Once I denied the insurance since mine covers me, she again gave me an attitude. I inspected the car for damage in an unlit parking lot with the flashlight on my phone. Apparently customer service is not a priority here. After returning the form I sent off with an attitude filled 'good luck' not a thank you.

Was closed when I arrived
Cons: My flight arrived late, after 11when they closed, every other rental copy was still open waiting for our flight to arrive except for Advantage.there for I had to rent from another company and paid almost double what original reservation was for
Mar 6 2016
Pros: The car was a great car for a good price
Cons: Used the telephone number they had to call to change up the plans and I was on hold for over 30+ mins every time I called plus they needed a 200 dollar deposit . But at over rentals they charge 50
Apr 4 2016
Cons: the care real co was not desirable
Apr 5 2016
Cons: Car was dirty. Someone smoked in it. Still had ashes on drivers floor. Washer fluid was empty which potentially became a dangerous situation.
Apr 5 2016
Worst car rental ever!
Cons: The car I was given was dirty, had a loud muffler and stalled twice!
Apr 25 2016
Pros: The car was plenty big. Lots of leg room and good gas mileage.
Cons: The car was supposed to be a non smoking car, yet there was a cigarette burn hole on the drivers seat and the interior reeked of stale smoke.
Apr 25 2016
Pros: Nothing.The guy at the counter was rude and did not honor the price I paid on priceline while making the reservation.
Cons: The guy at the counter was rude and did not honor the price I paid on priceline while making the reservation.
May 10 2016
Pros: Booked for 214 and ended up being 370.
May 28 2016
Good price, Odd experience
Newness of car
Customer service resolved the issue
Cons: Reservation was erroneously cancelled
Car had stickers still attached from dealer purchase
Customer service snuck insurance on my bill
Pros: Our trip plans changed due to an illness in the family and we had to fend for ourselves instead of relying on extended family for transportation. I tried to modify an Enterprise reservation to start earlier, but they "had no cars." I found a good deal in a few seconds thanks to the Kayak app. I took the hotel shuttle to the airport and completed the reservation during the ride. The paperwork was ready when I walked in and I was given an upgrade. I chose a beautiful car with less than 3K miles on it. Having this car made the whole trip easier. When returning to the airport, the agent took us back to the terminal entrance to save us a short walk with our bags. It was fast friendly and exceeded my expectations in every way.
Sep 24 2016
Pros: Service was fast, friendly and efficient at pick up and equally so for drop off. Price was extremely fair for the vehicle and car had absolitely no issues...clean with a full tank of gas. Good experience overall!
Cons: Wish there was a way to get my phone on the dash since I was using GPS so much... bit nothing I expect from a rental. All in all, can't think of a negative!
Sep 26 2016
Cons: They wanted to charge me more than my reservation stated and so I asked the guy if there would be any cancellation fee if I cancelled now and he said no. So I cancelled it and made a new reservation at Enterprise and Alamo still charged my credit card.
Sep 26 2016
Pros: Agent at pickup did a great job.
Cons: I was a smidgen off of full at return and was charged $9.99 per gallon. 2 gallons total. I take ownership that it wasn't 100% full, but feel their policy of $9.99 per gallon is a bit high.
Oct 7 2016
Cons: The truck was a little large fir me and hard to get into
Pros: The counter attendant threw on a charge for gas option. This was slied over and not explained nor did we agree to it. We try to notice this company again. They say they will refund the money as a courtesy. There are plenty of places to rent a car, no need for doing business with people that are deliberately deceptive.
Mar 4 2016
Pros: value and vehicle were good
Cons: felt like was nickled and dimed and hustled at the pickup. "you need this add on and that add on " etc. they were very slow getting you checked out and made you feel like a fool if you didn't take something like the gas option.
Mar 10 2016
Pros: Car was clean and very nice to drive. Rental agent was helpful and friendly. I would definitely rent from Thrifty again.
Apr 4 2016
Pros: Good people. Convenient.
May 4 2016
Pros: Ken was amazing! He made the process so painless and was extremely helpful. I have rented a lot of cars from many different companies and he is by far the best employee I have ever worked with. The price was a little expensive but the car was pretty new and nice.
Cons: Both the Thrifty and Dollar counters were combined and so the wait was extremely long.
Cons: After check-in, car was not available for 30-40 minutes. Otherwise all else was ok.
Feb 22 2016
Pros: The excellent rental price.
Cons: Fact it was a 12 passenger transit van. ( but, the price was more important to me as I have to make this trip every 4 to 6 weeks).
Sep 12 2016
problem with drop off
Pros: Pickup onsite was very easy, staff were professional and pleasant.
Cons: We arrived very early at the aiport otday ot return our vehicle (Sanford Fl airport) the signage was good to direct us to garage area but signage was very poor in garage. I realize this was very early before 6am so staff may not have been on. I then walked back to the rental car counters to leave my keys and paperwork. No one was at any of the ocutners, I did finally find the drop box but it was on a side wall next ot the offices.
A sign in the drop off area with directions and a sign on the counter as to what to do would have been very helpful.
Thank you Andre Cushing email@example.com
Pros: Price was good, providing there are no surprises yet to come.
Cons: Sold as Sanford Orlando Airport. Pickup was actually well offsite. Had to pay a taxi $25+ for the 5 of us to location. Had to pay $5 extra to drop at airport. No attendants of any kind at drop off. We just left the keys, at the direction of agents at other rental agency counters, who said "Oh, you're ok". Bizarre first rental thru Kayak as well as through Hertz. I doubt I will do either again.
Sep 1 2016
Pros: Staff was very and respectful. Car in very good working order.
Cons: I already did this review and keep getting asked to do it again. Starting to get annoyed now.
Pros: Great customer rep. Car was clean. Easy return.
Sep 19 2016
Cons: No one to check car in at MCO. Left after 20 minutes wasted waiting. Received wildly erroneous bill charging $120 more than contract including $100 for fuel service when I had just refueled. Waited online for customer service before line went dead. Not the first time we have had problems with Dollar/Thrifty in Orlando. Avoid, Avoid

Good value, but slow service
Pros: The car (Nissan Juke) was comfortable and easy to drive.
The value of the rental was pretty good.
Cons: When we picked up the car, there were maybe 4 or 5 customers before us and it took nearly an hour to be waited on. There were 2 clerks, but only one was actually waiting on customers - not clear what the other guy was doing.
Also, as per usual, they try and scare you into buying additional insurance and some toll package - both are a ripoff. We're covered by our credit card company and our car insurance. For the tolls, they accept cash, so it was fine.
