Cons: The entire experience was fantastic.
10.0 Excellent2019 Dec 11
Cons: Everything was great. I don’t know how it could have been better actually!
9.6 Excellent2019 May 09
Pros: Staff was fine at pickup and drop off (especially at drop off)Cons: The only slight annoyance was the number of times the counter rep suggested I purchase their insurance. I understand it’s their job to present this (profitable) option, but two offers is enough, I didn’t need the extra attempts. But this did not change my perception that this was a very nice rental
10.0 Excellent2019 May 07
Pros: Everything was easy.Cons: We rented in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
10.0 Excellent2019 Apr 26
Pros: Although not a new car, it had no issues, and was the right size for me. The staff was very nice, no upgrade pressure.Cons: Was a bit worried about the check engine light, but when I mentioned it to him before I left, he noted that it was getting near a service milestone. And as I mentioned, it had no issues.
10.0 Excellent2019 Feb 06
Pros: Staff was friendly and efficient; the car was ready when I arrived and dropoff went smoothly
10.0 Excellent2018 Dec 17
Pros: new vehicle
9.2 Excellent2018 Nov 15
Pros: Enjoyed the comfort of the vehicle and the easy drop off
4.0 Okay2018 Nov 14
Cons: Car was in terrible condition. Transmission slipped, possibly needed tires balanced, dashboard warning light was on (triangle with exclamation point) and the key battery was low causing anxiety that I might be stranded if the battery died and I could not get the car started. Worst rental car I've ever driven.
10.0 Excellent2018 Oct 16
A perfect rentalPros: Great car, great price, great service. Couldn’t be more happier.

Pros: Excellent
4.8 Okay2018 Jan 05
Pros: NothingCons: I didn’t like how they processed everything, too fast and didn’t have a choice of car. I would of liked a compact with trunk not hatch. And again fast with the check out, I wanted to pay cash and they didn’t even give us a chance to ask if we could. They were only concerned how many miles I put on, and that I parked in the return section. Mind you it’s snowing outside and their parking lot is a mess. Safety first? Lol mileage should be my last concern, And besides I’m paying.

Cons: CAR WAS KNOT CLEAN
8.4 Excellent2017 Jun 28
Fine Print: Read ItPros: Low price, fast process, easy to pick up and drop offCons: Car was obviously smoked in even though they claim a non smoking fleet.. It was like driving an ashtray with leather seats. Froze $200 of credit for 3 days past my drop off as opposed to date of pick up. Was very odd.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jun 22
Visiting grandkidsPros: there was nothing to dislike, the car was clean, picked up in Allentown and dropped off in PHI. Everyone was very efficient and friendly. You have a good team in PA.
6.8 Good2017 May 29
Pros: I liked the car. I drive a Subaru and was given an Outback by the agent at ABE. She was wonderful. Name? sorry I forgot.Cons: ABE airport is going through reconstruction and the rental car lot has been relocated temporarily. While I understand the process, Budget has been relocated to the furthest point. My husband was in a wheel chair and it was raining. A porter named Luis was kind enough to get the car for us and pull it to the front entrance. When we returned, I dropped my husband and suitcases off and went to return the car. The attendant for budget said there was no shuttle and I would have to walk back to the airport! The distance was unbelievable!! NO SHUTTLE, NO GOLFCART to transport your clients?? Unacceptable!
7.6 Good2017 Apr 11
Budget Car RentalPros: I am a repeat Budget customer. This time, I rented four 12 passengers van from Budget.Cons: When we came to pick up my cars, we have to wait about 40 minutes for the paper work do to the printer problem at Budget rent center. When we pick up the van, only 3 available and we have to wait another 20 minutes for the 4th van. I paid for toll boxes rental on all 4 vans but we discover that one of the van did not have the toll box. Two van cleanliness was mediocre, when I returned the vans after 9:00PM the location has already closed so we have to put the keys along with the papers work in the box.
5.6 Okay2017 Jan 24
Cons: The car rental wasn't entered properly and was not able to close out the rental when I returned the car

Horrible experience. Will never use budget againPros: Ford makes a good large suvCons: Service all the way around was horrid. After having so many issues and being hung up on etc and speaking to 15 ppl I finally got excellent service from one employee through the original pickup location. Couldnt even get a manager to call me or find a working phone number for a week.

Pros: Yes. Staff very helpful. Pick up and drop off were very fast and smooth.
10.0 Excellent2018 Sep 18
Super easy car rental and return.Pros: The airport is very easy to get to and the Rental Car return lanes and parking lot are easy to find and get in and out of. The rental car counters are a very short walk and easy to find, and there are carts around to place your luggage on so you don't have to carry everything. The rental lot runners/employees are also very helpful if you have questions or need direction.Cons: Honestly, there really isn't anything I didn't like about the ABE airport car rental experience.

Filthy car, poor customer service at drop offPros: The customer service at pickup was great!Cons: When I picked up the car it was frozen solid. It took a lot of work to be able to open the driver side door and melt the windshield. The outside of the car had a lot of body deficiencies such as tape marks, scratches, and scuffs. I could have gotten over that, but as the car defrosted I realized that the windshield on the inside has tons of tiny wet marks which were also visible on the dashboard and the panel in front of the speed gauge. It looked like someone had sneezed all over the inside of the car (dashboard/windshield). It was so gross that I pulled over about 90 minutes into the trip and bought cleaning supplies and cleaned the car! But besides that and the car being extremely uncomfortable, the worst part of the rental was actually the smell. The only thing I can compair the smell to is hot, wet cat food. The smell faded a little over time, but was most noticeable when the heat was on. It was terrible, and compacted by the fact that I needed to drive the car from eastern PA to VA to IN. Then from IN to VA to eastern PA, in January when the heat needed to be on all the time!!! It was a miserable experience. When I returned the car at the Hertz counter, I told them about my experience and the woman didn’t even say sorry it was a bad experience. I have been renting with Hertz multiple times a year for about five years, but after this experience I will have to do some true soul searching before I consider them in the future.

The place didnt existPros: They literally booked me at a location that no longer existed. Then they refused to refund. I really loved that. Totally didn't ruin my vacation at all.Cons: Everything. I never actually got my car and they kept 2/3rds of my money.
8.8 Excellent2017 Aug 10
I loved the servicePros: The rental counter personal were lovely. The car was clean and comfortable.Cons: The car was clearly having some issues. I suspect it was a transmission issue that only occurred on occasion at low speeds or in park. It was disappointing because when I travel far distances in a rental car, I rent a car because I am concerned about having car issues with my own car. I don't expect these issues with a renal.

Pros: I specifically asked for an American made car when I made the reservation. When I got there, all the agent would say “or similar”. He did change the Nissan to a Ford, but the. Charged me extra. I had all this worked out when I made the reservation, dont they put any notes in the database so this c?Cons: Provide the car promised at reservation or at least honor the price given when you reserve.

Pros: Staff was friendly, quickCons: The car smelled like smoke, although it had only had10,000 miles it had a few dings. I paid extra to upgrade, also opted for the prepay gas option. It was deceiving. The advertisement said $2.49/gal for them to fill the car upon return but it was actually a flat fee of $40. I filled the car and it only cost $28.00.

5.2 Okay2019 Nov 14
Pros: I had requested full coverage insurance for this rental. The agent who issued the car to me never added that coverage. Unfortunately I was involved in an accident and I was told that I wasn’t covered.Cons: Having been listened to better at the time of pick up and to have been covered by the requested full coverage insurance.
5.6 Okay2018 Jul 06
Frustrating experiencePros: Car was perfectly clean, and had better features (forward automatic braking) than most rental cars.Cons: Car was reported as full but came with 3/4 of a tank, though they did reimburse my refueling. Impossible to add a second driver without both drivers going to the desk, which is much stricter than any other rental company I have experienced.

5.2 Okay2020 Sep 27
Pros: The pick up was fine. There was no line and the counter agent was nice.Cons: The drop off was not ideal. There was no sign for Thrifty at the Philly airport. I happened to see some Thrifty vans parked in the parking lot of an office with a Dollar sign. My husband hopped out of the car and went into the building to ask if it was also where we should return a Thrifty rental. If he hadn't done that, we probably would have been circling the airport for awhile. Long story short, there should be better signage. In addition, an agent normally comes out to check in the car. I actually had to go inside the office to ask for someone to check in the car. It's not that big of a deal but it's nice when someone comes out - takes a bit off the stress of returning a car and catching a flight.
3.6 Mediocre2020 Sep 10
Pros: Staff at pickup were friendly. The 1st car chosen was all dented and scratched and windshield broken. Ac didn’t work. Wasted an hour going back and forth to get another car. Check your cars prior. Drop off SUCKEDCons: Your drop off instructions. Easy way to get a hold of someone besides the 800 number. Very upset
10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 06
Pros: Clean car easy service and easy to extend if you need more days with the car
7.6 Good2020 Jan 21
Cons: I think it is immoral to charge me $10 a gallon for a full tank of gas, when I did not use the full tank. I sort of understand charging a premium. The gas supply is no doubt right next to the wash and detail area, so it cannot cost much more for the service folks to gas up the car. It's just another way, along with selling insurance, that the Hertz car rental system gouges the unsuspecting.
8.0 Excellent2019 Apr 05
Pros: It was easy to pickup and drop off. Car was a good size for our needs and would rent again from Thrifty.Cons: The car smelled kinda weird - like smoke but it wasn't unbearable.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Oct 16
Bald TiresPros: I can’t really complain about the rate. It was quite affordable.Cons: Even if you are paying a good rate, you should expect that the car would at least be safe. The front tires had NO tread left and i was having to drive in the rain! Every time I would start from a stop the tires would spin out!!! Yikes! And when breaking the antilock breaks would engage. Definitely one of the scariest drives I’ve driven!!! Also, I had no idea that the location was NOT on airport like all of the other locations! Someone should apprise you of this so you don’t miss your flight!!!
