I rented through a third party, which was not clearly marked. Our flight was cancelled due to torrential rains in New York City. We had to cancel our trip. Nevertheless, charged us the full amount. No recourse through Thrifty. I will think twice before using Kayak again,Reviewed Oct 2 2023

Pros:The drop off went fine. When I told the agent that we turned the car into about our horrible experience picking up the car, he deducted $10 off of the remaining fees.Cons:The pick up was the worst we have ever experienced. From the time that we arrived at the Thrifty counter until we were given the car, it was almost an hour. While we did receive a free upgrade, the wait was totally unacceptable. They gave us a coupon for 15% off of our NEXT Thrifty rental which probably should have just applied to the current rental.Reviewed May 24 2021

Cons:Kayak is terrible and the price is misleading. I owed additional fees at the airport. I could have rented for cheaper without using kayak. Instead i got stuck with the „managers choice“ which ended up being a car that was scratched to hell. It was easily the worst car I’ve ever rented and I always pick the cheapest option so it’s not like the competition is tough. Never againReviewed Jan 31 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Pickup and drop-off was very easy.Cons:The only blip we had was trying to figure out how to open the trunk of the car. I didn’t see anyone near the car to ask. As it was raining, we threw suitcases in the back seat and watched a You Tube video to learn how to open it. Knowing that it did not work like any other normal car, some comments may have been helpful.Reviewed Jan 27 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:I liked that it was a new car with space.Cons:They should have the cars ready. The car was dirty inside and smelling like cigarettes. I booked the car weeks before, and was expecting a clean and odorless car for the price I payed.Reviewed Jan 2 2020
