Pros:Worse experience of my life. I agreed to pay about $243 for my rental through rental cars and when I went to pick my car up, I ended up paying $774 which is ridiculous. The lady checking me out at the Thrifty counter told me I HAD to purchase extra services such as insurance, gas, etc. she made it seem like I had no other option. I can’t believe she had to lie to me just so she could overcharge me. When I called thrifty, I talked to a representative and they gave me no options. They told me that the manager was not able to do anything and not provide me with any compensation. They were not helpful at all and I am very Disappointed with the service. Unless thrifty reaches out, I will never do business again and I will tell all my friends and family tonight rent a car through thrifty. I don’t understand why you have to train your workers to lie to over charge customers. And then when I reach out and talk to representatives about it, they tell me that nothing can happen.Cons:customer serviceReviewed Jun 28 2021

Pros:The girl work in parking lot tell me which car to get she is super kind and friendly. Also the guy at the check point when I drove out the car he is helping and friendly.Cons:The 2 guys work as receptionists at the front desk their attitude is very rude. Not sure if they are tired of working. The first guy forced me to add insurance without my consent. The second guy is worst, when I lost my paper work and go back to him, he don’t want to reprint it. Instead he ask for me driver license and credit dar to charge me double. So I got 2 cars at same time. And I asked him to fix it he said: “it’s time I gotta go no time for u. I’m outta here. that secundaria guy even coursed: “oh u don’t have insurance on this car wish u the best. And when accidents happen u will know” really really bad attitude and unprofessional at all.Reviewed Jun 26 2021

Pros:They were closed when our plane arrived, so we weren't able to get the rental car at all. We had to wait an hour for an Uber and had to pay a lot for that ride.Cons:Have someone there until all flights have arrived.Reviewed Jun 16 2021

Pros:nothing.Cons:Once we arrived in Houston, there was a 2 hour line even though we had reservations for the car. After we spoke to a representative, there was another line waiting for cars, as they did not have some readily available. After we finally got a car, it smelled so bad (from smoking) I almost threw up but did not want to have to wait for another car. We stopped to get air refreshners to help with the smell but it did not do anything. The car smelled so bad that we avoided driving as much as possible. Very bad experience.Reviewed Jun 15 2021

Pros:The drop off was easy, the car was nice. Although it was a Hertz rental that Thrifty rented to me.Cons:I waited in line for 2 hours for Thrifty to tell me that I would have to wait 2 more hours for my car to be ready (It was 1PM at this point and I was scheduled for pickup at 12PM.). I didn't have the additional time to wait as I was in town for a wedding, so I paid a higher price for an upgrade. Customer service is poor with this company as it bad practice to give a customer no option but to upgrade and require them to pay the difference.Reviewed Jun 15 2021

Pros:The staff was courteous at drop off but pick up staff was not.Cons:I expected to get the luxury car or similar to it at reservation online purchase, It was not a luxury car. I seen and could have got that Chevrolet for hundreds of dollars less. I feel I was had paying for a luxury car but didn't get it. I expect money back.Reviewed Jun 14 2021

Cons:They let us reserve a car for pickup after 10pm, but didn’t tell us they would close at 10pm before we arrived. We were forced to pay the walk-up rate at another agency to get a car.Reviewed Jun 14 2021

Pros:We could not even get our car picked up, as there was a line of hundreds of people with just two counter people. Thrifty is horribly disorganized at IAH. We decided to cancel our reservation and walk to another company/pay more to rent a car.Reviewed Jun 7 2021
