Cons:The Thrifty agent was not at the pick-up location at the scheduled time. The vehicle (a Mitsubishi sedan) itself performed slowly, and was very sluggish on roads with hills. The vehicle had over 141,000 miles on it, which is probably why it performed poorly. The tires were almost bald. The plastic chip cover on the key ring broke apart and some electronic chips fell out, making it impossible to start the car. This happened the day we had to be at the airport for an outbound flight. We had rented from Thrifty on another occasion, and that vehicle broke down and had to be replaced. It also had one broken headlight bulb that had to be replaced. Adios Thrifty.Reviewed Jan 1 2019

I never felt comfortable renting from themPros:The vehicle was economicCons:I reserved a minivan and they offered me a 15 seater bus. Ended up taking a 12 seater. Dirty, the car wasn’t in the greatest shape inside or mechanical, missing rear window wiper, ignition key would jam sometimes. They attempted to have me sign a document right of the bat where I was acknowledging damage done to the car claiming that all the details will be filled in just in case something happened tonthe car. Ended up paying more for insurance than what was shown on the website.Reviewed Mar 13 2018

Cost was much more than expectedPros:The rental, although bigger than what I had reserved, was in good condition and fairly clean on the inside. The shuttle at the airport upon arrival was very prompt and ready to take us to the location as soon as we arrived.Cons:I was told by the gentleman at the counter that I had to pay a mandatory $144 liability fee. When I inquired as to why it was mandatory he said it was just mandatory. Seeing as I didn’t have another option for car rentals and I was traveling w my infant, it was not easy for me to inquire at other locations re the “mandatory” fee. So I ended up paying way more than I had anticipated. I also reserved a convertible car seat but all they had was a very old and dirty infant car seat.Reviewed Apr 13 2018

Pros:We got a 7 passenger SUV, exactly as we had requestedCons:The car was a bit beat up. The air conditioner did not blow cold air, and we later found out that the hose had a leak. Also, the breaks were shot and squealed fiercely from the second day till the 14th day.Reviewed Mar 19 2018
