Despite having booked and paid for a car ahead of time, when we got to the desk to pick it up, they had no cars available and did not offer refunds. The agents at the front desk refused to address cancellations, and so my husband had to call thrifty while he was at the desk. Fortunately we did not have to wait the quoted 2-3 hours for a car before there was one available; however with a toddler and lots of bags in tow, this was incredibly stressful and frustrating.Reviewed Nov 14 2022

They called me first thing in the morning to tell me the booking site I used had bad information. They did not have an available car. I appreciate the advance call.Reviewed Nov 12 2022

The car rental that I had reserved was cancelled hours prior to me picking it up. Leaving me with no rental car.Reviewed Oct 25 2022

Long wait in line to get the car was frustrating. Pickup took about an hour. Clerk or service person was unpleasant. Showed very little interest in us. Husbands debit card had Jack instead of John (on driver’s license) so wouldn’t accept it. Car we had reserved wasn’t available. We have no idea what we were charged! That’s frustrating! We were told we’d be charged $500 deposit on the wife’s debit card which would be refunded. We returned the car 10/17 and still haven’t seen a charge or credit on our account. We liked the car and the ease with which we were able to return it. Thanks for letting us express our frustration!Reviewed Oct 19 2022

We waited an hour and we’re told at midnight that there were no more cars. We had to return the next day and wait another 90 minutes to get our car. It was awful.Reviewed Sep 28 2022

The worst car rental experience I’ve ever had. Will not rent from Thrifty/Budget again. Taking customers money and expecting them to wait 2-4 hours for a car is the most unscrupulous way to run a business. Stay away from them in ATL airport, rent anywhere else.Reviewed Sep 28 2022

I arrived after my reservation time and it was announced that they had no cars. Anyone checking in would have to wait two to three hours to get a car despite having a reservation. I cancelled at the counter and went to another company. I was responding to a medical situation and that was not acceptable. I won't be using them again.Reviewed Sep 27 2022

We made a reservation two months in advance. We were supposed to pick up the car at 2pm on Friday, Sept. 23. We received a text from Thrifty at 10am that day saying they were “sold out” of cars and there was nothing they could do. It totally ruined our trip and we were stranded. We’re still waiting for our FULL REFUND. We will NEVER use Thrifty again.Reviewed Sep 27 2022

I had to wait in line for over 2 hours,when get to the counter the attendant told me that I would had to wait between 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours before I could get a vehicle to rent that was ridiculous so I decided to get a Uber to my destination .Reviewed Sep 26 2022

Cars all sold out but confirmed reservationReviewed Sep 25 2022
review fromkayak
When I went to pick up the car, I was told that no car is available. What a surprise it was for me to cancel all my appointments. How can you confirm a reservation if no car is available? Please see that you don't lose your reputation like this. I had to go to another location and get a car with a great trouble and loss. May this not to happen to another customer who depends on your confirmation. Thank you for your attention to this message.Reviewed Sep 24 2022

The car was clean and seemed well maintained. I liked that the pickup & drop off were accessible using airport transportation. The employee that checked us in was not clear about what the insurance was on the vehicle. When I said "excuse me" to what they were saying, the just repeated the options: minimum, optional (I can'tremember what they were). I couldn't understand them well so I just said minimum. I had already bought insurance when I booked with priceline, so I paid twice. Also, I paid through priceline when booking, but was charged again by Thrifty when I returned the car.Reviewed Sep 22 2022
