5.6 Okay2020 Sep 08
Pros: Drop off in vegas was easy and staff was kind helpful.Cons: Pick up process in Austin was poor. Agent just said follow me. He walked around vehicle and then said i could go. He did not do a vehicle check with me meaning confirming there are no damages. Didnt tell me where keys were and did not ask if i had questions regarding vehicle functions. I had to go get him and ask where keys were. At that point the agent made me feel rushed and as if i was an inconvienence not a customer. I had to fingure out how to use lights, cruise control ect. I had never driven that car before so perhaps the agents should be mindful of that.
5.2 Okay2020 Sep 03
Pros: N/ACons: If I reserve a sub-compact or economy car, then that is what I want and expect --- and not to to be 'up-sized' to a bigger car - regardless of rate. Valuable vacation time was wasted on this issue. Honor the reservation !
10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 03
Pros: Yes
10.0 Excellent2020 Jun 21
Pros: Easy peasy, grateful for the extra care to be safe with covid risk and staff was awesome!Cons: Nothing- perfect!!
7.2 Good2020 May 15
Pros: Stuff was friendly, processing was quickCons: I made a reservation for Mitsubishi Mirage, but they made me take Chevy Spark. The Mirage has standard seating for 5 passengers; the Spark can only carry 4. The Mirage Hatchback has 3.2 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Spark. I am not going to use Enterprise car rental next time.
5.6 Okay2020 May 15
Pros: YesCons: The AC stopped working less than halfway to my destination. I had to change the vehicle.
10.0 Excellent2020 May 03

8.4 Excellent2020 Feb 19
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off!Cons: Car offered was not as fun so asked for a different one that was not a price difference and got a fun sporty one!
9.2 Excellent2020 Feb 04
Cons: Where to pick up and drop off car was a little confusing. Everything else was great.
4.8 Okay2019 Dec 30
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: My car was not ready and it was the wrong type, then they upgraded to a truck, but the truck was extremely dented and dirty. Finally they got me into a Ford Fusion, but it needed to be cleaned as well.

2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 19
Cons: Prepared to be nickeled and dimed. Gas tank showing well above full, but they can squeeze a little more in? Charge. Return a few minutes late? Charge. All of course within the Terms and Conditions that you sign when you rent the car, but up to you if you want to do business with someone who is going to take every possible opportunity to squeeze every cent out of you as you can.
10.0 Excellent2020 Aug 13
Pros: Pick-up and drop off was a breeze. I loved the car.Cons: Nothing that I can think of at the moment.
7.2 Good2020 Jul 06
Pros: The lady who helped us rent our vehicle was very helpful.Cons: The wait for a car at the beginning was very long, over 45 minutes.

6.0 Good2020 Mar 17
Pros: The car was clean and drop off was easyCons: I am active duty military on orders, I have rented cars thru numerous car rental agencies. When I arrived at budget they would not accept my military extension drivers license they said I could not drive the car!!! If I didn’t have my fiancé with me I would have been screwed. It was rude and they lack the ability to understand uniformed personnel extensions and the importance of accepting such extensions. I personally will never book with them again

7.2 Good2020 Feb 18
Cons: My car type wasn’t available (again) and we were given a pickup truck. It operated well but turning radius was terrible and ride was rough.
9.2 Excellent2020 Feb 13
Pros: Check-in agent was friendly and helpful—-it was actually the Avis agent that took care of me because the Budget line was held up a bitCons: Drop off of car took too long because too few agents were available to check people back in.
8.8 Excellent2020 Feb 10
Cons: Well, I like a clean vacuumed vehicle especially in the inside. My trunk was dirty, the back seats needed wiping down and someone should check that. Other than that, everything else was excellent. Thank you Shelly for your help with my needs.

Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly.Cons: Cars could have been available.
4.8 Okay2019 Nov 23
Pros: The Avis and Budget people were fine When I had an issue and had to speak to a Payless person It may be the worst customer service experience I ever had I’m assuming they are going out of business and everyone there is just angry I would avoid using this company till they figure this out Whatever money you may save using them isn’t worth it
9.6 Excellent2019 Sep 03
Pros: Very uncomplicated pick up and drop off! Friendly staff working efficient. We got an upgrade and were totally satisfied with our car! Excellent value for money!Cons: Counter was closed and we were sent to budget counter which was also closed. So all people were directed to Avis, which meant quite a bit of a queuing.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Aug 23
Pros: There was no staff available at the Payless at the Austin airport. Staff at the Austin airport was rude and clueless. It took 1.5 hrs for the Budget rental agency to find a car for me. Instead of promised Chrysler 200 or similar car, they offered a 10 seater van or a pickup truck. inappropriate optiCons: Never take any deal from Payless
6.8 Good2019 Aug 20
Cons: I did not go on one toll road but was lead to believe I probably would be on one. Paid $11 a day for that :( Also, young man when I returned my car was not helpful.
6.4 Good2019 Aug 17
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: Pick up! We had to walk all way down to end of counter just to see a very small sign that said to go to get in line at Hertz.
4.0 Okay2019 Jul 27
Cons: Austin has a system of toll highways and the rental person assured me I needed a toll pass for my travels to Kerrville and back when I showed them my route on the map. This added over $50 to the rental. The road to Kerrville is NOT tolled and toll roads are easily avoided in Austin. I felt swindled.
7.6 Good2019 Jul 23
Cons: I had to bounce between 2 counters bc the computer wasn't hooked up to the printer They sent me to a car space that was empty so I had to return to the counter(s)
4.4 Okay2019 Jul 18
Pros: easy pick-up.Cons: Charged me extra day, without letting me know.
2.0 Mediocre2019 May 06
Pros: Nothing. Was at Austin on business. Redirected us to budget. Where the line was an hour long. Waste of money. We went with Alamo in the end. Much better service.Cons: Don’t redirect people to a long line. If you rent from Payless. Have an attendant at Payless.

8.0 Excellent2020 Oct 27
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful and kind. They were not a problem in any way, and in fact should be commended for trying to help.Cons: The fact that I searched a pickup at the Austin Airport, and then I rented a car under the assumption that I was to pick it up at the airport only to find out that the address for pickup was not at the Austin airport was really inconvenient. The clerk was not able to change my dropoff once I arrived at the pickup location, which wasn't his fault, it was the silly policy that Hertz has with their policies, and prepaid amounts offered on their website.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 19
Pros: After walking 20 min to pick up the rental car on Saturday, the Staff said too bad about your confirmation, we have a waiting list and we have no cars until Monday. They said they tried to reach me, liars. Such a disappointment and no offer to make it better. Welcome to Austin.Cons: I would have loved to have ha a rental car for Saturday so we could have done what we had planned to do.
10.0 Excellent2020 Oct 19
Pros: Staff friendly, tried to keep the line moving along without too much delay
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 14
Pros: NothingCons: This was supposed to be booked at the airport and it was booked at an offsite location. My flight arrived at 12:40p which is 40 minutes after the location closed. $75 Uber ride and a rental vehicle from a different company that cost me an airport drop fee. Will never book through Kayak again.
10.0 Excellent2020 Sep 26

Pros: Very nice drop off staff. Check-in guy wanted me take economy car since it was intermediate sold out; he did not offer me a discount for smaller car. I asked for intermediate or larger; he gave me a larger car. He was very polite though.Cons: See above.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Oct 03
Pros: They tricked at the counter, the attendant never told me I was going to be charged for an upgrade. When I received my final bill by email, I realized they charged me $30 for an "upgrade" that was never delivered or discussed at the counter.Cons: AS BAD AS IT COULD BE! The car was in terrible condition, ketchup on the door panel, plus had a disgusting juice spill all around the cupholders. Employees maybe we're waiting for a customer to clean up the car. The car had mirror lever is broken, head console buttons (SOS) where jammed/broken.
5.2 Okay2019 Aug 12
Pros: I didn’t get the car or help from the staff. Still charged full amount.Cons: I scheduled a same day pick up via my phone And the city auto populated to the neighboring city. I didn’t realize this until I went to pick the car up - kiosk guy directed me to customer service line but no one answered x 5. Called again the next day and was told it was too late.

Pros: The man who gave us the car was abrupt and never smiled. The man who handled us when we returned was very friendly and helpful.Cons: More courtesy from the desk clerk when we got the cat

Pros: helpful staff, easy drop off & pickupCons: Car had almost no engine power, it was dangerously slow-speedup while merging onto freeway ramps, changing lanes the car was diesel volkswagon Jetta - i felt horrible for causing much more pollution compared to gas/hybrid

6.4 Good2019 May 20
Pros: We ended up with a truck, albeit an impractical one, with decent features at a great price. Drop off experience was pleasant.Cons: Beware of their dealer’s / manager’s special. They’ll try and give you a diesel vehicle and lie at pickup to convince you to upgrade and/or tack on extras. Worst rental pickup experience I’ve ever had! Go with Fox if you need a low-budget rental.

Pros: Drop off was very easy, car itself performed well.Cons: LIne to get car was extremely long. it was moved to hertz counter that had only 2 people working and at least 30 people in line. When we picked up the car it had a certified clean label on the door which was a joke. Dog hair everywhere in the car - stuck to steering wheel, etc. A bottle of CBD oil in the cupholder with dog hair stuck to it. Passenger side dashboard was filthy like someone put their dirty feet/shoes up on it. Clearly no one cleaned or wiped it down at all. if we weren't in a hurry and hadn't already stayed in line for an hour we would have rejected the car.
3.6 Mediocre2020 Sep 08
Pros: It was utterly disappointing to see that the reservation counter was closed at 11:00pm when I had the reservation to pick up at 11:00pm. on 9/4/20. I left multiple voice messages to the manager on duty but no one had a courtesy to call back ever! The reservation should NOT have been allowed to start with if the counter is closed at the time of pick up. Also, the local Thrifty airport contact phone number informs that the. counter is opened at the Austin Airport till Midnight!!. I had to spend another hundred dollars, come back again the next morning to pick up my rental vehicleCons: Provide compensation for the inconvenience and better communication on the reservation and the counter hours of operation and the availability of the cars
2.0 Mediocre2020 Mar 21

8.4 Excellent2020 Feb 19
Cons: I was surprised by all the charges at the airport. It ended up so much more expensive than I thought. Staff were excellent but it just cost too much
7.6 Good2020 Jan 06
Pros: Everyone was nice and the process was easyCons: I made the reservation on line (the mother) using my credit card. The confirmation said the driver would have to present license and credit card at pick up (which was going to be my adult son). When we picked the car up we were not allowed to do this without paying extra to have him be the driver. We were told because the reservation was in my name I had to be the first driver. If the on-line reservation would have stated this we would have had him make the reservation. Seems like you could have been more accommodating at the pick up time. Not sure why it makes a difference whose name is on the reservation.
6.8 Good2019 Nov 28
Pros: Very friendly people especially at the pickup and dropoffCons: First I wanted a car with a navigation system, after 45 minutes at pickup we figured out that the car did not have navigation, then too late an behind schedule had to leave. This created a lot of issues on my trip having to navigate by cell phone.....major problem. Second spent 3 hours on the phone with multiple calls trying to determine if I could drop the car at Hobby Houston at 4am....called and called and called again. Will not rent from Thrifty in the future.
5.2 Okay2019 Nov 26
Pros: The car was clean but also Gas tank was not full at pick upCons: Be prepared to wait in line at the counter for at least an hour before getting your rental. Counter guy says we have a choice & we go out to get our car and we don’t have any selection. The staff outside did not provide us undivided attention & lacked customer service. The exit gate guy took our key fob and did not return it upon us leaving the gate. Luckily we figured out the fob was missing before leaving the premises & turned around. At return it seemed to be such a hassle to close out my rental due to agent nowhere to be found. I wanted to confirm my charges due to the horrible service at pick up and I had to take a picture on my phone from the guy’s tablet as a form of receipt. This location lacked customer service and coming from a formal rental car employee, I know what is expected from these people and traveling all day the last thing you want is a bad rental car experience.
10.0 Excellent2019 Nov 18
Pros: Staff did NOT try to oversell!
2.8 Mediocre2019 Nov 01
Cons: The car smelled like vomit then broke down halfway through the rental period. To remediate this, Thrifty asked me accompany a tow truck driver to a location 40 minutes away. Instead, I chose to end my rental. Since then I haven’t been able to get any information from Thrifty regarding a refund. Very frustrating to deal with their roadside assistance, customer service, and the local franchise.

Pros: NothingCons: We waited in line to get the car for almost an hour. They then told us they had none of the midsize SUV’s, which is what we rented. We were charged $200 to get a bigger SUV because we couldn’t fit our passengers and luggage in a car, which is the whole reason we reserved a midsize SUV. After an hour of all the waiting we go out to the spot out car was supposed to be and there was no car. We had to back inside and wait until the clerk could help us. They gave us a different car that was filthy and sounded like it was going to die the entire time. When we returned it we were charged 15% tac and that on top of the $200 extra for the upgrade we didn’t want but weee forced to take were more than the original advertised rental fee. I will NEVER use dolllar rental again.

Nice car but it left the lot low on washer fluid.Pros: It was a nice car. Staff was friendlyCons: The Washer fluid was low and so every 10 minutes a bell would chime signaling the fluid was low. Fluid levels should have been checked before the car was put out available to drive. It was extremely annoying to have that chime every 10 minutes. Had to walk a mile to get to the rental building and I am disabled. There should have been a golf cart or some way for people to get to the rental building besides walking. The signs where to return rental cars at the airport were horrible with the construction.

Make sure it’s not a sub-contractorPros: Clean, new car in great condition. Drop-off was quick and easy.Cons: The rental was not with Europcar as advertised. It was in fact with Advantage rent a car who, I guess, sub-let cars. Pick up was slow (why do I have to provide all my personal details when booking if none of these are forwarded to the rental company??). Also, when I called to try to extend the hire by a few hours, I was quoted a price equivalent of more than a day’s rental.
