Pros:Like most airports long lines and only 1-2 staff members. Certainly not as bad as HERTZ but plan on a 30-60 minute wait to get a carReviewed Jul 8 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:We were able to pick up a vehicle that fit 6 people on time.Cons:They didn't have our reserved vehicle, so they made us take a HUGE vehicle and charged us $50 more per day (we rented for 6 days, bringing our total to $400 more than we had agreed to pay in our reservation.) We didn't want to drive a vehicle that big, but had to do this or make our grandchildren wait at Thrifty for an hour to an hour and a half or more for a vehicle that we reserved to be turned in. We also felt abused as they didn't tell us about this pricey upgrade until we denied buying their insurance.Reviewed Jun 30 2021

Cons:I was quoted the cost was $365 and prepaid for the car. Upon pickup I was charged an additional $150 for taxes and fees that I believed were included in the quote. The woman at the counter could not show me what the $365 original charge included because it was booked by a 3rd party. did not breakdown the charges. The lady at the Hertz/Thrifty counter was not very friendly either. I feel this was false/misleading advertising. I will not be using or Thrifty again.Reviewed Jun 14 2021

Pros:drop off good. car cleanCons:Long wait to pick up car. Representatives at counter closed station before taking care of us. Hertz rentals cut in line. We were diverted to Hertz counter and there was a long line. People renting from Hertz rather than Thrifty were seen ahead of us, even though we had been waiting >20 minutes. Worker at counter closed his station and left rather than take care of us. So waited some more.Reviewed Jun 2 2021

Pros:The clean Hertz counter and the friendly attendantCons:I rented AN AMERICAN CAR!!! When I got there, all they had was a CRAPPY Korean car ( 2 of them) and no AMERICAN car. You should be ashamed of being in AMERICA and not stocking American cars. Why buy foreign cars and help their economy. REALLY SUCKS!!!!!!!Reviewed May 10 2021
