Won't Use Thrifty Again
Pros: Unlimited miles is about the only thing positive I have to say about this rental.
Cons: 1. The guy at the counter seemed more interested in flirting with the girl ahead of me than extending any real customer service. 2. There was a dent in the front fender which we did not see until we stopped 30 minutes down the road. I immediately took pictures with my phone and called Thrifty's 800 number to report this damage. The gentleman was nice and thanked me for reporting it. I wanted him to know I would not be held responsible for this damage and that no one at the pick up site ever inspected the car before we drove away. 3. When we returned the car I mentioned the damage to the guy at the drop off site and he said, "Yes, I saw that." I explained that it was there when we first got the car, that I took pictures and that I called Thrifty's headquarters to register the complaint. He said it was MY responsibility to inspect the car before taking it off the lot not the agent's! Seriously? I told him I would not be held responsible and he just looked at me with a stupid smile and said the company would be contacting me about the damage. 4. The car reeked of cigarette smoke so their "No smoking" policy obviously is a joke.

Pros: The Hyundai Elantra handled well and I received great gas mileage. We were also able to store all of our luggage in the spacious trunk.
Cons: There was some obvious cleaning needed of the steering wheel and the bottom center of the windshield was a haze where the cleaners never quite reach when cleaning. What irked me the most was I prepaid $9 per day for insurance only to find out that it didn't cover everything. I would have to pay another $7 per day for loss of use of vehicle coverage if it were in an accident. The $7 is a ripoff charge.
