7.6 GoodSep 28 2020
Cons: I had a special car and got charged extra when I asked for an SUV.
5.6 OkaySep 21 2020
Pros: I was prompted to purchase insurance through your platform, which I did through Allianz for an added fee. However, I was then alerted by the rental facility where I rented the car that this insurance does not function the same way as their insurance and that, if I got in an accident, I would have to contact Allianz and file a separate claim, which would make the process much more difficult and time-consuming. Essentially, I purchased an add on through your platform that did nothing. I would like a full refund for my insurance.Cons: I was prompted to purchase insurance through your platform, which I did through Allianz for an added fee.

10.0 ExcellentAug 17 2020
Cons: Everything went off without a problem would recommend to anyone
8.0 ExcellentAug 7 2020
Pros: Friendly staff, pick up an drop off easy.
2.0 MediocreJul 22 2020
Pros: They at least called to tell me the car I was to pick up that day, but had rented online a few days prior, was not availableCons: If they had called me before the day of the rental. The woman said they had been sold out of cars for days. I had rented it 2 or 3 days prior so they rented me a car that did not exist. They could have served me better to not rent me a car at all. Just tell me they aren't available so I don't have to end up paying more someplace else
8.0 ExcellentJul 8 2020
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off.Cons: Car choice. I didn’t like the car I had at all.
8.4 ExcellentApr 25 2020
Pros: Staff were out in a wet snow renting cars !Cons: Consider having the fuel tank filled, as much easier to return to some increment < full, as was asked for with my rental.
4.8 OkayDec 31 2019
Pros: Friendly staffCons: The car was filthy and full of dog hair. It was also very out of alignment
9.6 ExcellentSep 7 2019
Pros: The staff was lovely. Dropoff was difficult as the 25 River st address leads to the way out of the parking lot. Couldn't figure out how to get to the entrance.
9.2 ExcellentAug 15 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful-especially Vladimir.Cons: Windshield was not clean enough. Had issues with the back-up camera and the radio.

4.0 OkayMay 10 2021
Pros: The staff who helped me at pick-up was very kind.Cons: 1. the car smelled like cigarettes. 2. They did not have the class of vehicle which I reserved, and I was given the worst vehicle i've driven in my life. I needed a car for a golf trip, and the vehicle I was given couldn't even fit 1 bag of golf clubs in the trunk.
4.0 OkayApr 26 2021
Pros: The staff was excellentCons: The broken rear view mirror was a repeating problem. It would not stay in position. I had to stop numerous times to readjust it because it would close onto the door while on the highway making it impossible to see out the back on the right side of the van. Not acceptable.
7.6 GoodSep 12 2020
Pros: Good behavior of people working and nice carsCons: Helpline services and more instructions on returning car instructions when the store is closed
10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2020
Pros: The staff at Hertz Rental Car were helpful & friendly. The car was comfortable & was the best price out there. The office was in a location that was easy to get to.Cons: The Hertz location that I went to did not accept debit cards. It would have made my experience much better if I had been informed of that ahead of time as I had to go back home to get my credit card. Even better, I thought they did not have a viable reason for not accepting debit cards in the first place.
2.8 MediocreJun 23 2020
Cons: Car smelled as if four people Chain smoked in it. Rental agency had no other cars on the lot to exchange. Felt sick entire time - smell was so strong. I ordered a VW Jetta and got a Chevy Malibu.
10.0 ExcellentNov 11 2019
Pros: I love having a Hertz so close to home. Not a good choice if you're renting from the airport but for Camberville people, this is a great option!
6.0 GoodNov 11 2019
Cons: They were not clear about their gas charges or their return instructions.
5.2 OkayOct 7 2019
Cons: The reservation was made for 6pm at a location which closes at 6pm meaning there was no way they could give me a car.
8.8 ExcellentSep 20 2019
Cons: The car was kind of older and run down. I had to drive 500 miles in two days and it was nerve racking because the car felt like it was about to break down.
2.0 MediocreSep 4 2019
Pros: Easy pick up.Cons: Unfairly charged for extra day of car rental that I never utilized.

9.2 ExcellentFeb 24 2018
Thrify car rental convenient to Logan airportPros: it was very straightforward to take public transit to this Thrifty location from Logan, for no charge and it took perhaps a half-hour which I thought fast. My car performed well and was both new and clean on the inside.
2.0 MediocreMar 7 2017
Poor Customer ServiceCons: They don't have any information. Their policies are waste. Their toll charges are compulsory if you don't take it they put fine on you. Thier insurance charges are ao high. Just having car charges low as compared to other companies doesn't matter overall thrifty is super expensive including all insurance toll and other services. They don't have decent cars too.
8.4 ExcellentNov 30 2016
Small office, but decent servicePros: Car and service was as expected.Cons: Separation of collision and liability insurance was a surprise, but it turns out that's common.
3.2 MediocreOct 21 2016
Cons: I had booked my car rental 4 months in advance to ensure I would get the car I wanted for a road trip through New England. However, when I got to Thrifty they said they could not find the keys for the car I had requested. I had wanted a small car to save on gas mileage and the elevation I would be driving on. Instead they gave me a mid size car that went through a lot of gas. Also, the car reeked of cigarette smoke. The smell was so strong we had to invest in air freshners which did very little for the smell. I had tried spraying perfume as well which was only a momentary fix. We kept the windows down for most of the drive. When we would turn on the AC, a very sour smell would come through the vents. Also, we had been told rolls would be covered; however, before leaving we told the car had not been registered to EZ Pass so we would be responsible for all tolls, which added up. Long story short, do not rent from this company.
6.4 GoodOct 18 2016
Pros: Cleanliness, comfortCons: Why pick up at Thrifty Cambridge instead of BOS airport as agree at booking which we have to take Uber for another $62 for round trip to airport !
2.0 MediocreOct 13 2016
Pros: Never used. They sent me to a different company
