2.0 Bad
Pros:Nothing
Cons:I got there an hour early and they didn’t have any cars. There were 15 people waiting around for cars. They told me to come back in an hour and maybe they would have a car. No thanks. Went next door to national and they helped me out.

8.0 Great
Pros:The agent Howard was very kind and seemed truly sympathetic for not having a car for us reserved . It appears Thrifty guaranteed the Internet price . But they don't gaurentee that they will have a car for you . How nice is that to arrive after a long day , at airport and they have sold out of all cars . And none were to be found anywhere in area .
Cons:It appears that they claim 30 % of customers don't show up for rentals , so they never save cars for people with reservations . And if everyone shows up along with the walk ups , you could be left scrambling to try and find a car elsewhere . We booked a week in advance and the guy in front of us got last car and he just got there . Even with a call a few days before to reaffirm we had a late flight and they said no problem . This is probably standard practice with all company's so just offering some rental car education .

2.0 Bad
Pros:The arrangements setting up the initial rental appeared to work very well. Price was the best anywhere and I decided to take the insurance which was also a good deal.
Cons:At the Thrifty desk, the agent told me that I rented the car with a pick up location of the Casa Del Mar Hotel. I was not staying at that hotel so I did not see how that could be possible. I know I selected airport pick up and drop off. He indicated he could accommodate me but it would cost an additional 12%. After some discussion I agreed since I did not want to start my vacation off on the wrong foot. Then he asked me if I wanted insurance. I informed him that I already had insurance and showed him the paperwork. He said, "you didn't buy that insurance from me" and explained that I would have to decline his insurance. Again I agreed. Then he produced 3 forms for an insurance claim in case I damaged the vehicle. He wanted me to sign each page at the bottom agreeing to whatever he would later write on the page if there was an accident. I refused and left without getting the vehicle.

4.0 Mediocre
Pros:The staff working in garage area was nice
A
6.8 Okay
Pros:All the staff with whom I spoke were very nice.
Cons:The car that I had initially reserved (compact size automatic transmission) was unavailable. The only alternative automatic trans car was a giant 7-seater SUV, which would have been impossible to fit down the narrow streets of Seville. Ended up going with a medium-size SUV in manual transmission. Not ideal as I'm not incredibly comfortable driving stick, so it made for a more challenging drive than I would have liked.
