Everything done right.Pros:Automatically refunded the extra $10 I paid at check out when I thought I might be an hour later with return. In and out quickly. No hard sell on extras.Reviewed Sep 21 2017

Cons:When I arrived at the counter I was offered a foreign make. I stated that I needed an American brand for this trip. I was offered a Ford Fusion, which was the same size (Full Size) for an additional $10 per day. When asked if that was okay, I said no. After 5+ minutes of looking for other vehicles I was given that car for the same price. When I booked the rental, it stated Ford Fusion or similar. I understand how the game works, but why try to get $10 more per day and then keep me waiting there when that's the class i leased?Reviewed Dec 16 2018

Pros:The staff was unfriendly not helpful and kinda terrible . I didnt like anything about this experience and 10/10 do not recommendCons:They could have been more helpful. I was $10.00 short on a hidden deposit I was unaware of until my arrival. Therefore I had to call my grandmother so she could come use her card. Since it was a different card they charged me an extra 50 dollars because she was a driver. Obviously she wasn't a driver she was just helping me out. They didnt care about the dilemma and made no attempt to help me out. The process that should have been 5 mins took an extra hour l after already being on the plane for 8 hours. The staff was unfriendly and unhelpful through the whole process.Reviewed Aug 17 2020

Pros:I liked the onboard Pandora radio (Kia Sedona).Cons:The wrong vehicle was in the wrong stall. I rented a minivan, and the stall number given was occupied by a RAV-4. No one was around to help me. So, I selected a minivan that looked good to me, and drove it to the check out station. I told them that I selected a vehicle from another stall, and they said it was OK. When I flatten all the seats in the back to carry all the family luggage, the van had not been cleaned. There were several candy wrappers and a large kids' action figure still laying under the seats.Reviewed Feb 20 2016

Pros:Car was ok----Ford Eco SportCons:The Thrifty location was farthest from terminal. The staff was occupied with one customer. The wait was long. The attendant did not know how to open the back of SUV. Therebwas no one there when the car was returned---not a single person and they were aware fo when I was returning. Thrify is cheap for a reason!Reviewed Sep 17 2020

Doors taped shut???Pros:Drop off was fine.Cons:Car had tape residue on 3 doors. Not sure why. Car itself, a Nissan Versa is clunky and the windows fog up constantly. Not that great of gas mileage for a small car. Of course, the make of the car is not Thrify's fault, but I wouldn't rent another one.Reviewed Mar 22 2017
