Rental process was decent. Most unclean rental car I've ever had. Steering wandered badly. No engine oil on the dipstick so I had to add some. No fluid in wiper washer reservoir so I had to add some.

They gave away our car. We got a deal through Kayak. I guess they did not want to honor the deal so they rented our car to someone else for twice the price. As a result I would never use Enterprise car rental or Kayak again!

Staff was really friendly. Car handled well in winter weather. Easy pick up and drop off.My rental felt overpriced — $175 for 26 hours and only used $5 worth of gas. Staff didn’t explain cost or meaning of other add ons, felt a little pushy. But I also recognize that that is their job!

We were in Anchorage off season, so that helped with the price I’m sure. But we were in and out with a cute clean car in no time.

Loved Yaris. But battery in key fob died and I had to drive 140 miles to get one. Windshield wipers also died. Avis says they will reimburse me. Both are preventive maintenance item that should have been done. When I turned car in oil change 2990 miles overdue.

The lady at the pick up desk was pretty grumpy with us and the people before us. And we had to drop off our car before they opened back up for the day which was a little confusing, since we hadn't been warned about where to put the keys. The drop off lanes were also extremely full which made it difficult for anyone dropping off after us to find a spot. My boyfriend was not allowed to drive unless we paid an additional $15/day which was ridiculous. Be warned that only a spouse can co-drive at this rental agency. But the car was clean and in good condition. There was an attendant out there at pick up that took a solid video of the vehicle, so that we wouldn't have to worry about paying for other people's damage. I liked that feature.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 17
This AVIS rental place at airport in Anchorage Alaska had a unsatisfactory service. First off, the front desk agent tried charging my credit card twice, the manager on duty didn’t even care to come to resolve the problem. It was the worst experience I encounter in any rental car services. I would not recommend this place.

Downtown location is small and funky but great staff and friendly--- we had the car for three weeks and it was fine. Turned in car and walked five minutes to train depot. Very convenient. I will use this office again. Prefer to the busy airport locations. Staff makes it great,

Everything was easy and straightforward. The car was what I expected. The price was a great deal for the time of year. The only thing that could have made it better was a lower price, but I’m not complaining at all.
10.0 Excellent2021 Aug 26
Our chosen sedan wasn't ready, so the agent upgraded us to an SUV. We planned to leave the vehicle at trailheads and needed a trunk to cover our gear. The agent quickly prepped a sedan anyway and we were on our way. Appreciate it!

The check in process went smoothly. Check in was tricky. Budget asked for proof of insurance. We have never been asked that before and didn't bring our insurance card. HUGE suggestion: Please send documentation with the name Budget or Kayak on it. I was sent 2 emails from budget with a PDF to open. Since there was no name on the email that I recognized nor any information about what the attachment was about, why would I ever want to open it??? It was from datahost@icloud. PLEASE state who the email is from so this doesn't happen with other travelers.

Pickup wasn’t easy. Probably more due to Anchorage set up than Thrifty. Drop off tried to charge me $60-something for 1/8 of a tank. I just filled up the tank at the gas station 25 feet away. Thankfully I had printed a receipt. How many people do they do this to? Will not rent from Thrifty again for this reason.

The location left me on hold for over 1.5 hours and I finally gave up. The car was very dirty inside. The windshield wipers were so worn out it was easier to see through the windshield without using them. The good news is that the check out and check in were quick and easy at ANC airport.

Cost of rental was super high but we were in Alaska and there was a shortage of vehicles so we were glad to at least get a rental. Our vehicle was new and clean and awesome. And pickup/drop off was very convenient. So great experience overall
7.9 Good2021 Aug 16
I had called about check in time for rental car because my print out said 12n for pickup which was an error, since plane got in at 7p. I was told by the representative that wasn’t a problem, that the reservation would be held till 12m. When I got to the counter, I was told that the reservation was cancelled after 4hrs past time (12n), the exact thing I had called about. I did get a car, but at a higher rate. I am not pleased with this outcome.

They could have actually had the car for me to rent. They did not have the car I reserved to rent. Then had the nerve to offer me a bigger car for $500 a day. Will never use them again.

Staff was fine, Pickup and drop-off were easy.It was incredibly expensive at $300/day. We had no choice of vehicles and they gave us a large Toyota minivan when we would have preferred a small SUV. We dropped it off 5 hrs earler than we had planned to avoid another full days charge, which caused us to skip doing some of the things we wanted to do. It also necessitated a very long wait in the ticketing area of the airport before we could drop off our bags.

We got a vehicle.We did not get the vehicle we requested. The staff were unprofessional and rude. The employee who processed our rental charged us incorrectly by overcharging us $1400 which put a hold for that amount on our credit card. The $1400 that was being held on the card was supposed to be used for additional expenses on our trip. Without having those funds available Thrifty put us in a horrible position for paying for basic necessities on our vacation. In addition the employee who processed our rental provided incorrect information regarding the insurance available to purchase when renting a vehicle. He stated multiple times that there were three different packages we could purchase. He stated the amounts of each package and stated the insurance was all inclusive covering our rental for the time we had it rented. He did not mention that this was a daily charge. He then proceeded to grab my fiancé’s credit card out of his hand and input it into the machine. He did not tell us the final total and charged the card to $2600. Our rental was quoted at $1200. This was not the experience I expected from a simple vehicle rental to start the beginning of our vacation. We are very disappointed and will not be using Thrifty ever again.

Pricing was ridiculous $300 per day for a mid-size SUV. Staff was ok not anything special, more concerned selling insurance and condition of vehicle . Make sure as a renter to mark down every blemish on vehicle and make sure an check the windshield for chips or cracks. Otherwise they will file claim if you don’t buy there insurance.They want to over change for everything. Asked about cost dropping a airport. In the past it was free, they quoted me $25 contract says $15 they still argued. Read the fine print be on guard…..

Dropping the car off the person checking the car in was very polite.When checking the car out the guy at the desk was extremely rude. He also said that the insurance you purchase through Kayak does not cover the car. I had to call and add insurance through my personal company before I could leave. I would also recommend putting winter tires on the vehicle when it’s being rented in Alaska during the winter.

1.9 Horrible2021 Jul 14
The agent that we worked with at the desk was friendly and did upsell us from a Chevy Spark to an VW Atlas SUV and did let us know that there would be a $60 price difference per day. We accepted that and accepted his initial final charge. He did NOT tell us the check out process with the car upon leaving the airport and no one was working at the booth for check out when we were leaving and we already were running late because the process took longer than it should have. The tank was only half full when we got the car and the car did not have America USB chargers for our phones (only micro USB). Again, had we known this, we would have not taken that car but again...there was no one working the booth and we had to be to our next appointment. Upon returning the car, the woman checking us is was not friendly or accommodating. Then, when we asked her for a copy of the checkout report after she told us "everything looks good, you are free to go" she let us know that someone would email us a copy along with a receipt. Well, we have not received a check in report or an itemized receipt and we were charged way more than we were had initially been told. We were already being price gouged for a three day car rental and now we have additional charges that we were not expecting. The whole process added stress to our trip and now is causing a massive headache after the fact.
