Pros:Staff was great.Cons:The vehicle was a pickup with 54,000 miles. It ran fine, but it had dings, dents, bent bumper, 1/32 inch windshield crack. These are are also okay, but it was up to me to identify all of this--there should be a blanket up front disclosure on the truck--unless it's totaled, it's not an issue. It just added to a stressful checkout.Reviewed Apr 20 2021

Two hours to get out of DTW?Cons:When I arrived at Thrifty at DTW, the line was out the door, and there were three stations open. They never brought on extra people, even though it was the day before a UofM football game, and half of Florida was flying in for the game. It took an hour to get to the counter, and once I had the car, another hour to get out of the parking lot, because they only have one exit booth!!Reviewed Sep 16 2016

Pros:Nothing.Cons:After 10 hours of traveling I get to Detroit at 2 am with my 5 month old daughter and wife. The clerk tells me that before he can take my money and /or deposit he wants to run a credit check. Now this is problem for 2 reasons. One they had already taken the money for the insurance and I needed proof of my itinerary (which I had). So after running my credit I was denied. They didn't try to extend a solution to me or my family and told me that the only thing they could do was put me and my family back on a shuttle to the airport. I was in town for a funeral and ended up catching an Uber from the airport to my destination. This was a MAJOR inconvenience for not only that night but the funeral too. I WILL NEVER USE THRIFTY.Reviewed Mar 13 2017

Pros:Friendly staffCons:45 minute wait to get the vehicleReviewed Feb 25 2017
review fromkayak
Pros:The DTW agent was friendly but seemed to have too much going on - understaffed, and really tried to please everyone. The chosen car, a Ford Fiesta, was clean, a perfect size to maneuver and comfortable.Cons:Transit from DTW to pick up location was confusing because multiple Car Rentals had been combined. The paperwork did not match what I reserved/paid online. Drop off at MSP drop-off was confusing as no one was directing people on what to do. Customers just stood around and stared at each other asking each other what to do. Finally someone with a handheld computer said just leave the keys in the car after being asked. I still do not know what my final charge will be and have received no paper work or emails finalizing the transaction. MSP seemed totally unstaffed and not monitored by employees.Reviewed Sep 30 2020

No ComputerCons:The "at the car person" had no working computer so I had to go inside to drop off. Hmmmm! On the other hand, the courtesy bus driver was REALLY nice. Good job.Reviewed May 31 2017
