Pros: YesCons: The pick up agency tried to rent me the wrong size class car, and if I hadn't called them out on it, would have been charged for the smallest car they had when infect I paid for bigger.
9.6 Excellent2019 Dec 16
Pros: Great staff, easy pickup and drop-off, no issues and good clean carsCons: Better signage in cape Canaveral location, but it's only due to hurricane damage - so understandable
5.2 Okay2019 Oct 21
Cons: They did not have the level of vehicle we reserved and were not helpful accommodating us even though it was their mistake.
2.8 Mediocre2019 May 30
Pros: The vehicle was nice but filthy.Cons: Check-in was slow and disorganized. Was blamed for damage already on vehicle.
6.4 Good2019 Apr 08
Pros: Making the reservationCons: Not being told that they don't have a car for me and it could be 3-4 hours before they do. Being told that others made reservations before mine and they will come first. Being charged an additional $40 for an upgrade if I really needed a car right now. Person acknowledging that they know it issue
2.0 Mediocre2019 Mar 24
Cons: The problem wasn’t with hertz, it was with kayak. I reserved a car, thru kayak, walked a couple miles to get to hertz, only to find out that there wasn’t ANY cars available. Don’t make reservations thru kayak.

Great rental, but long waitPros: Rental was quick, once I reached the counter. Car was just as advertised. Associate at the counter was courteous.Cons: It was a very long wait at Hertz, Cape Canaveral. I was only 5th or 6th in line, but I waited over 30 minutes. Also, to make matters worse, there was no AC in the building.

Pros: Front desk was very quick and helpful. Couldn't have been better
10.0 Excellent2018 Oct 07
Totally convenientPros: We went on a cruise and were picked up immediately by a shuttle that took us to pick up our car. The gentleman that picked us up helped with our bags and was friendly. Our reservation was suppose to be at 12 but we were able to get our car a few hours early. It was convenient, accommodating, the car was in nice condition, staff was friendly, and the price was very affordable. Will definitely be doing business with them again.Cons: I have nothing that I was not happy with my experience
3.2 Mediocre2018 Sep 09
Pickup shuttlePros: Car return was easy and quickCons: Our rental pickup was from (N ATLANTIC AVE, CAPE CANAVERAL, FL), we were supposed to be picked up from port Canaveral which is 3 miles away from this office. They have only 1 shuttle, we waited for 2 hours for a pickup. The rental office never pick up the phone .we tried to call the headquarters numbers, even the managers couldn't get hold of them or do anything for us . SO IGNORANT
6.8 Good2018 Feb 19
Over Reserved?Pros: The agent, Hash, who served us was awesome. Calm, patient. He apologized for our wait, upgraded us to a nicer vehicle & said we wouldn’t have to refill car.Cons: Between Thrifty & Dollar, they accepted more reservations than they had vehicles for. We stood in line for nearly an hour before we were waited on.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Aug 15
Horrible customer service and long waitingPros: I made a reservation to pick up 10 am lined for at 9:30 am and finally got the car at 12:30 pm. No enough cars staff are not friendly at all except shuttle drivers.Cons: Do not take reservation more that what you have in the stock
8.0 Excellent2017 Mar 08
Cons: The office was closed and afterhours drop off instructions were confusing, complicated, and bizarre. The only available parking spot when we arrived was handicapped, which I parked in anyway, and by the time we left two more cars had pulled in with no place to park. Felt uncomfortable dropping the car keys into a mail chute but that was the instruction. It was all just weird.
7.2 Good2017 Jan 19
Not enough staff.Pros: The Port Canaveral office is VERY busy on a cruise morning. We spent about 15 minutes waiting to turn in the car and another 30 minutes standing waiting for the shuttle to the ship. Needs some more staff.
6.0 Good2017 Jan 10
Cons: the shuttle bus never came to port canaveral we had to take a taxi to get to the rental center, all the shuttle buses from the other companies came frequently while the dollar shuttle base came in almost two hours of waiting, one time
3.6 Mediocre2016 Dec 26
Drop off location very confusingPros: I ordered the car with different drop off location than pick up location, the guy asked me to go to the airport service counter to get receipt, after he checked everything was fine, I waited forever there, there was only one person there, I never expected dropping off car will take that much hassle
6.0 Good2016 Oct 14
HurricanePros: It was a car.Cons: We had to return the car early since there was a mandatory evacuation, yet no money was deducted.

Pros: Staff at pickup and drop-off was friendly and efficient. Shuttle service to pick up was good and the driver was courteous.Cons: The car was not clean. Seats were stained and it looked like the vehicle was not vacuumed properly after the last rental.
9.6 Excellent2019 Dec 26
Pros: Yes
3.6 Mediocre2019 Nov 19
Pros: The quickness to the response of exchanging the car after the one they originally rented me had a malfunction and the upgrade to a large vehicle.Cons: the mysterious $9.99 Portside charge that was not outlined anywhere. I had made a call to budget to confirm any additional charges prior and was not made aware of that. When I arrived at the budget office they told me I will be charged an extra $9.99 which makes no sense as it appears be assigned arbitrarily to non local customers.
10.0 Excellent2019 Jun 15
Pros: Great pick up and easy drop off.
10.0 Excellent2019 May 06
Pros: It was great that they followed up with me while I was heading down there. They wanted to make sure I arrive on time to get to the cruise.. the drop off was very smooth.Cons: During pickup at the port, there was no sign or notice on when the pick up time would be. We had to wait about 30 minute before we saw the shuttle.

Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Drop off was easy.Cons: Bigger waiting area. We had to wait almost 4 hours due to the time I had requested the start of my rental. One family took the whole air conditioned area and stayed there
8.8 Excellent2018 Jan 28
A bit of a wait, but good car.Pros: The car ran really well, and was a slight upgrade.Cons: The line at the Port was pretty long to pick up the car. Also, the car had no USB charging port. The car also wasn’t completely cleaned; the cup area had junk from the last user.
8.0 Excellent2018 Jan 07
Pros: The pick up and drop off were excellent.Cons: The shuttle from the cruise ship was extremely delayed. Had to take an Lyft ride. The car I had reserved was not available.
10.0 Excellent2017 Nov 20
Pros: Very nice vehicle!Cons: Nothing comes to mind--it was a great experience all around. Will rent with Avis again. Thank you very much!
10.0 Excellent2017 Nov 08
Pros: Very comfortable vehicle with excellent accelerationCons: Bumped my head on low clearance roof while getting in
6.0 Good2017 Sep 29
Pros: Lovely attendant receiving the car.Cons: No service available for getting you to your final destination which was advertised.
10.0 Excellent2017 Jul 03
Cons: I wish they would've told us how many tolls we'd have to pay on the major highways in Orlando. At one point we went through a toll that only took coins. We were unable to pay the exact toll which was stressful. Also there are no accessible gas stations near the Orlando Airport. Wish they would've offered for us to pay our gas up front to save us the hassle of finding a nearby gas station which required us to pay tolls twice just to get there.
5.6 Okay2017 May 22
Pros: Once we finally left everything was fine.Cons: Not enough help for busy time.
10.0 Excellent2017 Apr 22
Pros: Service, quickness, car
2.0 Mediocre2017 Feb 13
Worst of the worstCons: Took their shuttle almost 1 hour for pick up at the pier. The shuttle was too small for the luggage. The parking lot is unpaved and gravel. Try pushing luggage from a cruise through that. Unfriendly counter and shuttle driver. What else could you want?

Pros: DropoffCons: Only one person working at pickup point. Very long wait
10.0 Excellent2018 Dec 10
Pros: Easiest check in pick up and drop off I have ever hadCons: Shuttle from cruise ship didn’t run very often so we just took an Uber to the office, no big deal but would have been nice to have the free shuttle from port Canaveral more conveniently running.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Nov 18
Long lines, excessive waiting, poor experience overallPros: Should have paid more, for any other company besides Thrifty/Dollar.Cons: Understaffed and slow, exceedingly long wait for shuttle and again at office for staff to process rentals.
6.8 Good2018 Aug 06
Pros: The return at airport was smoothCons: The bust to pick us at the Carnival port never arrived and the Budget driver took us to Thrifty. Upon arriving there was no attendant so we had to wait for him to arrive.
10.0 Excellent2017 Nov 25
Pros: Dropped off the car and was immediately taken to the port for our ship. He was VERY HELPFUL. I'm sorry I did not get his name but he seemed to be the only on there. Besides checking us in, he drove the shuttle to the port.Cons: Nothing!!!
7.6 Good2017 Mar 05
Slow pickup at Port CanaveralPros: Car was clean. Once we got to the Cape Canaveral office things went well.Cons: We waited for about an hour for a pickup at Port Canaveral. We watched as every other passenger that had disembarked the ship with us got picked up by multiple trips of all of the other rental car vendors' shuttle buses. Then it was just us Thrifty folks waiting in line and wondering if they would ever come. Repeated phone calls to the Thrifty office in Cape Canaveral went unanswered. Eventually we were picked up. But I will certainly never rent from Thrifty again at this location.
4.0 Okay2016 Nov 16
ConfusionPros: Vehicle gas mileageCons: Car had an oily film which made it difficult to see out the windows without repeatedly cleaning and vehicle had been smoked in a lot. The smell of smoke irritated us both. We even tried spraying the car with a powerful hospital deodorizer, but were never able to eliminate the smoke odor.
7.6 Good2016 Jul 18
Long shuttle waitPros: Once we finally got to the place they were pretty quick in getting us into the car. They processed the line well.Cons: After getting off the cruise ship we waited a long time for the shuttle. It's hot and the kids were tired.
2.8 Mediocre2016 Jan 23
Pros: Ease of drop off (as long as you don't want a receipt or need to talk to someone).Cons: The gentleman at the desk was rude and unhelpful. It was crowded and he did not deal well with the customers. Very unorganized.
