Slightly above average
Pros: Pickup was free of hassles and relatively smooth. Pretty good value.
Cons: Rep at pickup in Latham didn't seem to know what he was doing and had to wait for help from another employee. Car had exterior marks and a cigarette burn on the front passenger seat.

Hidden costs
Pros: Mo and the crew are great. Like really fantastic customer service. They were awesome.
Cons: The only thing, and it wasn't their fault, was that suddenly there were taxes that were not listed in the reservation. That's shitty. All of a sudden they announced higher airport taxes, even though the thrifty is off-airport. I know they are just going based on the computer, but thrifty needs to fix that. It's a super shitty feeling as a customer to budget a certain amount of money and find out you are paying more

Dec 11 2016
Pros: Staff at the rental office at the Albany, NY office were very pleasant and helpful. They treated you not just as a customer but as a friend. I would rent again there-even though you have to be driven to the office-because of the staff.

Canceled: Rental facility is *not* within the Albany airport as advert
Cons: Dollar claimed to be located within Albany airport, but in fact a shuttle is required to God knows where. Apparently this has been an ongoing problem at this particular location. We canceled and got a car thru Budget right by baggage claim (there's also Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, and others), but if it had been a busy weekend, holiday, etc. we may not have been as lucky.

Pros: Good. Nice that it has a shuttle seevice to airport took under 5 minutes. Nice customer service.
Cons: You can't see the sign for the rental office when coming down the main road. Need more signs!

Oct 19 2016
Cons: I had asked for a small SUV, and when I checked in that's what I was told we'd have. At the very last minute (after 1:00am!), I was given keys to a Dodge Durango, not a small SUV. I didn't want to take that big a car into cities and parking garages. Luckily, the next morning I was able to exchange it for a much better, smaller, and updated Ford Escape. I also did not receive a clear explanation of a waiver of the toll transponder (I must have thought i was waiving the additional insurance coverage). Therefore I've been charged a hefty "administrative' fee for going through a $1.00 toll - I'm pretty sure if I'd had the rules and consequences described to me, I'd have taken the option to pay for the transponder. It seems like a tricky way for the company to make extra money. (This took place in Albany, not Latham.)

Car had a defective tyre
Pros: Roadside assistance staff very proactive and proposed various options to resolve problem.
Cons: Rental car was not safe to drive with a defective tyre. Complicated procedure for getting a replacement and due date extension places the burden of cost on customer.

In and out. -I like it!
Pros: The car rental experience should not take very long or be dramatic. They did an excellent job of having the car ready, clean, and were very efficient. What else could you ask for!

Watch out for the early return policy!
Pros: The people who checked me in were friendly and efficient.
Cons: When I picked up the car, I stated that I wasn't sure whether I would have the car for one or two days. They said "no problem". When I returned it after one day, they slapped me with a $25.00 early return fee. Not a nice policy! They should have warned me and I would have only rented the car for one day and then extended it if I needed it for another day.

Turned a bad experience into a great one.
Pros: The girl on the counter at albany airport went out ger way to help and sort of the mess left by the schenectedy branch. Cant praise her enough and would give her 6 stars if i could. I had to give three stars because of the poor experience at schenectedy she sorted out for me. Talking to her at drop off it appears other people had the same experience. Give this girl a promotion as without her my holiday would have been ruined.
Cons: Schenectedy hertz, arranged to pick up my ar on the 26th of december for a week, pick up time was half 12 but they failed to tell me they shut at 1 and would be shut for three days after that. Even when i phoned to clarify a couple of details the day before, was no mention of them closing 5 hours before every other hertz in new york state. I had to pay a little extra to pick my car up at albany because of this but was well worth it to not lose half my rental if albany hertz hadnt sorted this mess out. 5 stars to her, 1 star to schenectedy.

Drop off fine no cpmlaints
Pros: No problem Ken with drop off
Cons: Agents couldn't figure out that if the Schenectady office was closed that the Albany airport was the next best option. Kept wanting me to rerun the car either to New Jersey or Syracuse. Neither would get me near my destination. People need to Learn some geography'
