Cons:I reserved a 7 passenger and after my card was scanned and I walked outside, I noticed I was given a 5 passenger. Transaction was supposed to be avoided but there continues to be a hold on my accountReviewed Jul 23 2019

Great vehicle, stupid gas policyPros:Great, reliable vehicleCons:I filled the vehicle up with gas before I returned it so that the gauge was even more than the "full line", but because I didn't fill up the gas within 10 miles of returning it, they labeled it as only 7/8 full and charged me an extra $10 for a gallon of gas. And they did all this without even telling me they were going to do it when I returned the vehicle. I just saw the added charge on my receipt after I left, which is bad customer relations.Reviewed Sep 3 2016

Pros:Due to the weather conditions and a lack of a pilot out original flight was cancelled, our make up flight was delayed enough that we would have missed out connection, and our third flight was late (but it got us to our destination)! Thrifty gladly accepted all of these changes with no fees, etc. the car we got was great, although much smaller than we had anticipated.Reviewed Jan 6 2016
