Pros:While we had to wait an hour for the car, the staff did their very best in a situation they could not control. They gave the cars out as quickly as they came in. They were friendly and upbeatCons:It would have been nice if cars had been readily available. However, it appears the travel world is opening up again and it may take some time to adjust. Nashville airport didn't have enough cold drinks to keep up with the demand of folks travelling. We are getting back to the new normal. Everyone was patientReviewed Jun 15 2021

Pros:The car was nice, the dropoff was easy.Cons:Had to wait two hours for an available car at pickup, with no place to sit at pickup point. Explanation for this was that a gold member had demanded a car, and they always receive priority. There were 20 people waiting with us. One man said he had been there three hours. Also, felt ripped off on the gas-tank charge. We were given the option to either fill the tank or be charged an extra $43 at drop off. We filled the tank, only to find out that thrifty charges you $36 regardless. So, we spent $20 to fill the tank for a savings of $7 on the total bill. Slimy.Reviewed Apr 13 2021

Pros:Car ran fine was as representedCons:Drop off was a NIGHTMARE. Flew in to Houston Hobby, arrived about 4:45pm local time. Waited for a shuttle for 20+ min. Saw other car rental companies shuttles but not thrifty. Finally called. They said the location was CLOSED for the day! They close at 4pm on a Saturday!!! Had to uber twice and go back the next day to pick up the car. Very frustrating. As a suggestion maybe send the hours of the location and if there is an after hours drop/pick up available at time of booking???Reviewed Apr 12 2021

Pros:My ENTIRE experience with Thrifty car rental was terrible. I had a reservation for my pickup time set for 1:00 pm and I didn’t receive my vehicle until 3:41 pm. My vehicle was NOT the vehicle that I reserved and my experience was a total disaster. The rental company was overwhelmed and they didn’t care about the customers at all. There was NO communication whatsoever regarding why there was a (2) two hour delay in receiving your vehicle. There was NO compensation or empathy at all.Cons:EVERYTHING....Reviewed Mar 10 2021

Cons:After paying a rather high price on kayak for the car, I was charged double the price I paid at the counter. I have insurance myself thus have never purchased the insurance and this rep insisted I HAD to purchase the coverage. Paying over 400$ for small car was ridiculous.Reviewed Nov 24 2020
