Lady at the counter was hesitant to help me, and was clearly upset when she was helping me. Car smelled really bad, it was dirty both interior and exterior.Reviewed Jan 14 2024

I was forced to wait for 1.5 hours at pickup because there were no cars available. Rude staff, and it was like the hunger games with people fighting for cars when they became available (no reservation per vehicle so people all just started trying to jump in) it was like the hunger games. Never experienced anything like it, totally shameful for thrifty/hertz and will never rent from them againReviewed Oct 9 2023

Cons:The service is so slow that they only have one person working at a counter when there are three rental agencies. The line was very long, and they packed all of us in together, so they didn't care about social distancing or anything. It took forever to give us a car which Ford Focus and Chevy spark are not similarReviewed May 24 2021

Cons:Had to reschedule my flight but Thrifty wouldn't let me reschedule the car rental. I knew it was non-refundable but I didn't want a refund, I just wanted to push it back a few weeks. Total waste of $150, I'll never use Thrifty again.Reviewed Apr 5 2021

Pros:It was very easy picking up and dropping off the car. The car was in good condition and clean.Cons:I feel like I got tricked into purchasing insurance twice. Since I purchased my rental through Kayak, I opted to buy their insurance since it was fairly priced. When I was picking up my car, the attendant asked for my CC and I thought it was to run it for the rest of the rental payment. Instead I was asked about basic, full, or premium insurance, in which I said I had the basic and was charged an additional $77. I didn't realize at the time that this was a separate item... I'm hoping to get a refund but wanted to make people aware of this so they don't fall for it too.Reviewed Sep 3 2020
