Pros:Horrible customer service. Getting help took an extremely long time. Bi will never use Tjrogty or Hertz againCons:Actually being helped instead of having to wait long periods of time to have someone keep telling me their company policy does not allow this or they or the other thingReviewed May 26 2020

Watch out for unscrupulous counter person. SDFCons:Counter person at SDF Louisville told me you " must " take our min insurance adding an additional $130 to the tab. After already signing, I realized that I do NOT have to take thrifts minimum insurance policy. When I re approached him he became upset with me" you told me to put it on" . I had registered for an intermediate an he gave me a Chevy that was not a intermediate. I had to drive 4 crammed people( one of which was my boss) from Louisville to Nashville. I had ask for something large enough to to fit 4 comfortably.Reviewed Oct 17 2015

It is what it isPros:Car was clean.Cons:Main thrifty help number was unable to connect me to the local (airport) number. This made it difficult for me to locate rental car pickup, and ask simple questions like, where exactly are you within the airport? Also, car air conditioner went out about 1.5 hours in. Not the end of the world, but had to drive to St. Louise for a replacement. Still not the end of the world. However, I spend another 1.5hours going back and forth to thrifty and Hertz (who is apparently the parent company) as the employees at both locations debated who was responsible for replacing the car.Reviewed Sep 5 2017

Pros:Staff was okay vehicle wasn’t ready at designated time and still had to be cleaned and wasn’t properly done so. Was also charged for gas and shouldn’t have been they said I was given car with full tank that was false and I have a tuned and dated picture of the gauges so I returned vehicle with same amount as given actually a little more and now fighting to get my money back and upon more investigating this same thing has happen to many people this rental company is not the one I prefer to use I just had no choice on this particular date I will never returnReviewed Oct 22 2019

Pros:Staff pretty straight forward, not super friendly but nice enough.Cons:Drop off was a bit confusing. No attendant, no instructions.Reviewed Jun 24 2020

Pros:Agent at desk was friendlyCons:I was assigned a car but it was not in it's location. I had to find an employee to find another car for me, which took about 15 minutes. The car I received was dirty and definitely wasn't cleaned beyond pre-covid standards. I'm not a germ freak, but greasy fingerprints on the screen and doors and a greasy feeling steering wheel are just nasty.Reviewed Nov 16 2020

Pros:The price and the vehicle was great.Cons:At pickup, the vehicle was not ready, and had to wait. The help desk seemed to not want to be working. There was no information given about the return of the vehicle. I had to ask about return from the man working the gate, but even that was not enough. At return, there was no one to close the transaction, Just a sign saying to leave the keys in the car. I had to work with customer service for the next two days to get the extra daily charges removed from my credit card account because no one at the drop off location closed the account. I'll not rent from Thrifty and associated companies again.Reviewed Aug 20 2020
