10.0 Excellent2019 Dec 04
Cons: I ordered an Audi Q7 and they didn't have it when i went to pick up my rental so they gave me a Infinity Q60 instead... If i wanted it a Infinity i would have rented one. So I say they should be better and work on offering what they'll really have or not rent forward the vehicles they already have rented for an specific day

Cons: $100 drop off to airport was steep and because of early morning flight had no choice and did not realize there would NOT be a shuttle to airport.

5.2 Okay2020 Sep 17
Pros: YesCons: We paid for a premium car. What we got was a car with no navigation or seat warmers, Chargers USB did not work. Inform them that we had to buy battery packs and we're told we would get an email with a discount in an upgrade Curtisy drop at the airport. They did come true on me drop at the airport. Inquired twice about the other two things I received no response.

8.0 Excellent2020 Jun 04
Pros: Staff conducting outside curb service during covid. The person helping me was considerate and efficient. I received a call the morning of pickup that the original sight for pickup was closed although I was not informed of a change in drop-off location which I called to find it also had been changed. Not a total inconvenience, though, since the drop-off location was only seven miles away. Not having access to email during trip, I did not receive the final contract which did provide the new drop-off location until I returned home. However, the vehicle was great. A Nissan Sentra, enough power and comfort for a 700 mile drive.
9.2 Excellent2020 Feb 16
Pros: The staff at the Downtown Enterprise are always very helpful and friend, often going above and beyond to accommodate me.Cons: Winter tires on AWD vehicles :)
10.0 Excellent2020 Jan 04
Pros: Staff were great: Josh went far beyond expectations and we had less stress. There was a problem with the charges, and I phoned customer service. The person solved my issue in 5 minutes.

Pros: Convenient pickup/dropoff location right by the terminal.Cons: Infotainment system kept crashing every 5-10 minutes when hooked up to bluetooth.
8.8 Excellent2020 Aug 26
Cons: We arrived at the Denver return location and it was closed and blocked with no information on where to return the car
5.6 Okay2020 May 16
Pros: The car was greatCons: When I picked up the car it took forever. I was the only person there, but it still took way too long to get checked in. The desk agent didn’t explain all the charges well and added insurance, at a ridiculous daily price, when I thought I was adding no additional insurance. Their customer service line did help by taking half the insurance cost off, but still way more expensive than I originally booked the car for.
10.0 Excellent2020 May 03
Pros: Friendly staff. Great car. Great value.Cons: Hot coffee and donuts at the counter.
10.0 Excellent2020 Feb 12
Pros: I got what I wanted with no hassle
9.6 Excellent2020 Feb 09
Pros: They included a snow brush, very necessary for the local climate in Febuary.Cons: A turn signal light was burned out, I should have reported it but I was still half asleep when I returned it early in the morning.
7.6 Good2019 Aug 21
Cons: Had to wait an hour for a car on pickup, and the return booth was unmanned on return. Used Dollar before, but I’d avoid this location in the future.
10.0 Excellent2019 Jul 02
Pros: The line was long and it was late, but the soonest they could the other staff came back and opened up another line to check me out. Reservation pulled up, no issues.Cons: I wish I would have known to buy addtional insurance from Dollar instead of a third party through Kayak. I didn't realize that would be going through another 3rd party had anything gone wrong. Wish that was more clear.
10.0 Excellent2019 Mar 16
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. They even brought the car curbside which was amazing because I had a lot of luggage and two very little kids!
2.0 Mediocre2019 Mar 11
Pros: They didn’t have a car for me.Cons: Evetgung. It was like the fyre festival of rental cars. They had no car for me.

Pros: Everything was easy
9.2 Excellent2020 Aug 08
Pros: Staff very friendly both at answering questions at pickup and return was easy
8.8 Excellent2020 Aug 02
Pros: Great staff, easy pick up. Drop off was at Denver Airport and that was VERY poorly communicated that the Thrifty drop off should be done at Hertz. Once we discovered that, it was fast and friendly but pretty stressful when we didn't know where to drop it off!Cons: The car was not very clean - chewed gum in a cupholder in the back of the car. I get it, but with COVID when everything is supposed to be particularly clean, that was surprising.
10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 20
Cons: Exterior of car wasn't very clean.
6.0 Good2020 Jun 22
Pros: The staff was great both at pick-up and drop off. Our disappointment was the car. It was advertised as a jeep and we ended up with a Ford escape. We were headed to 100 degree sun in Moab Utah and were forced to take a black car. The cruise control did not work.Cons: Provide the vehicles you advertise and make sure they are suitable for the climate where your customers are traveling and they work properly.
2.0 Mediocre2020 May 24
Pros: The price of the rental was good but they made the process of picking up the car such a nightmare that I walked away from the counter without no car.Cons: Understand their own policies and procedures. I had my credit card stolen and had not yet received the replacement so I was forced and to use a debit card for the rental. I know this is not preferred but it is acceptable according to their web site so long as I agreed to pay a deposit with the debit card prior taking the car. The counter person said that I needed to forms of ID (my fault for forgetting the second ID) and after I had my family drove 20 minutes to bring the second ID to me I was told that I also needed a airline ticket stub demontraing a return flight. Kind of a hard thing to do when I live in the city where I was planning on renting the car. I then called their customer support line and after waiting 25 min on hold I was given a rep who let me explain the problem and then put me on hold. After coming back on the line he asked me a second time how he could help me like he forgot our entire conversation. This happened a total of three time. I would explain the situation get put on hold and when the rep returned to the call asked how he could help me. I finally asked for a manager and was told they were busy and then after a fourth hold I was told that they were all gone. Then hold again for another ten minutes and then they dropped my call. If it hadn't happened to me I wouldn't believe it. I will never use Thrifty again and will recommend the same to my company.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Apr 15
Pros: The staff was not there even though I gave our flight arrival time and the business hours said they would be there till 1 am. We arrived at 11pm. We ended up renting from another company.Cons: It could have been better if the business was own for the hours it says they are. If your arrival time does not fit in their hours of business, the online program needs to not let you put that time in.
8.0 Excellent2020 Feb 16
Pros: We did not have to wait long in line at Salt Lake City. I read reviews before traveling that made me nervous about going with Thrifty. We were able to drop off quickly and efficiently. We did have a problem with our first car and they quickly changed us to another car without issues, that second car was actually better for us. Overall a good experience with no problems.Cons: Typical additional sales efforts at the front desk that can be tedious to go through.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Jan 27
Pros: NothingCons: There was no agent at counter. I called customer support, who disputed with me that no agent was present. After waiting 45 minutes, someone filled in to help fulfill the rental. However, my Kayak rental had been canceled by thrifty. I lost the amount I prepaid and had to purchase a new rental at a higher price with a car I did not want, as they claimed that the cancelled rental was no longer available. Nobody at the location or on the phone customer service could assist. This was a truly horrible experience and will never again rent from Thrifty.

2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 19
Pros: That there was a car available when I picked it upCons: Literally everything else. I stood in a line of only 20 people for an hour (there were 5 different agents working behind the Avis counter!!) to get my rental. Hertz would never! The man giving directions to where the car was locates was not clear at all, "go down the escalator and turn right" was a severe over simplification in this so huge airport parking lot. So we just wondered for a few mins before we just started reading the ground and eventually found it. The car also sucked and was not as advertised. Website said it could fit 5 people and 3 luggage but when we got it, 4 people was a squeeze and we could only fit one full sized suitcase and a carry on suitcase; the rest had to be a smaller duffle bag and book bags, there was no way another luggage was fitting in there. Does 3 suitcases not mean full sized suitcases orrr? And yes, the entire back windshield was covered. I'm sticking with Hertz after this
6.0 Good2020 Oct 15
Pros: Decent priceCons: The staff at pick up was rude and short as soon as they heard I wasn't a preferred member.
8.0 Excellent2020 Oct 04
Cons: LONG line and long wait to pickup car
6.0 Good2020 Sep 30
Cons: went to pick up car and took almost 40 minutes for them to figure out what cars they had. car we were supposed to get was not available and car we did get was fine but we paid a lot more then what we expected to pay
9.6 Excellent2020 Sep 16
Pros: Fast pickup and easy drop off.Cons: We found someone's face mask under the seat and some areas of the car were not wiped down thoroughly.
3.6 Mediocre2020 Sep 13
Pros: Pick up took an hour. Very expensive.
8.4 Excellent2020 Sep 08
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Pick-up / drop-off was easy. Appreciated that the service counter was open <1hr after posting closing since my flight had late arrival.Cons: Car was definitely on the dirty side (exterior especially). It was also unnerving that there was no visual inspection for pre-existing damages to confirm condition of car. The car had a fair amount of scratches on the exterior of the vehicle that was not confirmed by anyone from Avis prior to me leaving with the vehicle. I just walked up and drove it off the lot with zero confirmation.
7.2 Good2020 Aug 25
Pros: GreatCons: Early drop off
2.0 Mediocre2020 Aug 10
Cons: After a 45 minute wait in an extraordinarily long line, even though we had a reservation, we were told it would be another 60-90 minutes before a car would be available. Totally unexceptable! And I was traveling with a 100 year old father in a wheelchair!
6.8 Good2020 Apr 15
Cons: The agent in Ontario was inexcusably rude. She shouted at me to not park in a certain area and when asked where I should go was told “well not here.” My brother in law was there to assist me as I am handicapped and she told him that if he got out of his vehicle to help Me she would call security. I have never been treated so poorly by a company whom I’ve paid for a service. It was appalling, actually, the level of service I received.

6.0 Good2020 Oct 19
Pros: The car was clean and ran well.Cons: I couldn't get any customer support. Very frustrating. The charge came to $229.45- not bad, but when I returned the car I was charged $786.48 on my credit card. I will NOT be using Payless car rental EVER AGAIN! In researching the issue I have come to understand that they have a history of doing this. My car ended up costing $1015.91 with no customer service. I will go back to Enterprize next time. We have never had an issue with them.

2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 12
Pros: nothingCons: never even made it through the line at the counter. 50 people ahead of me and one person working
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 03
Pros: The staff seemed polite.Cons: For some reason renting a car at the SLC airport is often a bad experience, no matter what company. This time, the 15+ person line at the Avis/Payless counter wasn’t moving. At all. For a long time. People were complaining to the manager, who indicated it was an issue he couldn’t resolve. Finally my husband walked over to the Hertz counter — and we were out the door with a cheaper rental in under 5 minutes.
7.2 Good2020 Sep 20
Pros: It was a nice truck. The counter person was nice and treated me well when I picked up my car.Cons: They charged me for two gallons of gas even though I returned it with more fuel than it had when I picked it up.
10.0 Excellent2020 Sep 04
Cons: Fast, easy, good car
7.2 Good2020 Aug 27
Pros: No problems at all with the car itself. Totally great, as expected.Cons: Staff was moderately friendly, but the line for rental wrapped around the entire lobby. It was only Payless with this traffic, due to an online promotion. However, despite this choke of humans in line, there was only 1.5 folks working. 1 was on his phone at the counter consistently, while dozens of people waited in line. Another helped a customer for 20m then disappeared for 20m. Another employee came out in his stead and had to begin all over again. It may not have been the staff's fault that they were slammed, but it was their fault that they treated the customers and the line so poorly.
6.0 Good2020 Aug 23
Cons: Long wait line to get going - 30 min or so. I picked payless because they advertised a Nissan Versa. I ended up with a Chevy Avalanche which worked out just fine, but it wasn't what they advertised.

Pros: The car was nice. And complimentary shuttle was great.Cons: Customer service could have been better, it did not feel that welcoming. When shuttling having my information to verify we aren’t getting into a strangers car would have felt safer. When going over the pre damages on the car before I leave I felt that it would be more beneficial for them to come out and inspect the car with me rather than me doing it alone. Security deposit amount needs to be listed because that was a surprise. But we enjoyed the car and returning it was easy. I just feel that those other things I mentioned need to be worked on.
9.2 Excellent2019 Dec 09
Pros: The rate was great and I like that they had Toyota Sequoias.Cons: The pick-up drop off is a little clunky. The exterior signs at the airport do not say Advantage, the driver for another company explained that one shuttle picked up for Advantage and the other. And I know that this is not necessarily Advantage's fault but when you google Advantage Airport another location in SLC shows up.
10.0 Excellent2019 Dec 09
Pros: Pickup is by shuttle that stops at the airport Rental Car office for other brands. Return to that office offsite is navigable by Google mapping.Cons: Satisfied with rental. Mid Size SUV reserved was Toyota Rav4 but substituted with Mitsubishi Outlander of equivalent size, also 4WD.
4.8 Okay2019 Nov 19
Don't rent from them if you're local!Pros: Car was clean and comfortable.Cons: Charged me an extra 20 bucks a day for unlimited miles because I was "local". That was not advertised. Probably some garbage in the "small print".
8.0 Excellent2019 Nov 01
Cons: Location at terminal
5.6 Okay2019 Oct 23
Pros: Drop off was easyCons: Upon pickup staff was rude and even though I reserved and paid for one thing was told that I could not have that unless I paid more because I wasn’t from out of town. There should be additional questions when booking so that you are aware of the price diu long upon pickup and so you’re not thinking the price you paid at reservation was it when it wasn’t. I will never rent from Advantage again.
4.8 Okay2019 Oct 20
Pros: Returning the car was fastCons: The car had mechanical issues upon pick up (I was only renting for a few hours) and it was very difficult to get it resolved. The advantage staff and roadside assistance were little help.
10.0 Excellent2019 Oct 16
Pros: Employee at front counter was very professional, helpful, and friendly during check-out.
6.0 Good2019 Oct 09
Pros: The manager did make corrections to fix the problems and was very kind.Cons: The car was very dirty at pickup outside. Full of scratches and a cigarette burn hole in the seat. They charged an upgrade charge without permission and a fuel charge w/o permission. As mentioned previously the manager did fix it but when on vacation I don't expect to have to deal with deception
7.6 Good2019 Oct 05
Pros: Staff was friendly and very forthcoming with all the extra chargesCons: Vehicle was advertised as unlimited miles on your app. When I went to pick up I was informed that the limit was 250 miles per day. I was driving to a city that was 275 miles away

Pros: The rental place was closed when my plane landed and there were no other cars to rent. It was a terrible situation.Cons: It doesn’t matter because I will not rent from Hertz again.

Cons: There was no car for me. Instead of providing a bit of customer service, they allowed me to take a lyft to the location and tell me they have been out of cars for a week. Very poor service and planning. AND, no mention of refunding my lyft money to the rental facility and out of there.

Cons: I rented a car on Kayak. I took a $20 lyft to rental place. They told me there were NO cars available for a week. I took lyft for the rest of my stay - costing me a fortune. WHY WOULD YOU NOT CALL ME AND TELL ME THIS BEFORE I GOT A LYFT TO HERTZ!!!!...AND ANOTHER TO WHERE I STAYED! Hertz blamed it on Kayak. I blame it on both.

4.8 Okay2020 Aug 22
Cons: They did not have the class of car we reserved available. We needed a large car because we had a LOT of luggage. We were told that we could have one size larger, but that we would have to pay the difference in cost. We explained that any time this has happened (and it has happened quite a few times), we were always given the upgrade free of charge. But Budget refused. We had no choice but to take the larger car and pay extra for it. It was extremely disappointing.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Aug 14
Pros: Nothing! they refused to rent me a car. My drivers license recently expired. Having a super res # with them meant nothing. Avis rented me a mid size SUV for less money with out any issues.Cons: A little understanding during the pandemic was met with a firm NO

Pros: 2020 car was niceCons: Dirty... they don't take their cars through car washes, they just splash the car with water and swish it around with a sponge. You can see all the streaks all over the car. The inside was NOT cleaned and definitely not sanitized. I did my own cleaning upon getting in because there were finger prints everywhere and hair and wrappers in various pockets.

6.0 Good2020 Oct 14
Pros: drop off was easy and efficientCons: pick up was a mess, waited 1/2 hour after finally finding where to wait, only to get on a completely full shuttle, no social distancing we were all waiting so long we didn't even care at that point - directions and better signage at the airport would be helpful. then we waited in a long check in line, and our car wasn't even ready. And this was at 4PM Our rep comped us an additional driver FOR FREE - which we didn't use - but he was really trying to help get us in and out. The car was not clean, the check in process took over an hour, check out took less than 5 minutes -
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 13
Cons: Everything, worst rental experience ever and currently disputing fraudulent charges with Fox. I filled the car upon return at the gas station across the street, receipt proof available, and they charged me for a full tank and told me I returned it empty. Awaiting a refund but have received zero communication from the company. Building is dirty, car was dirty, everything was poor.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 12
Pros: Nothing!They were very rude . They added deposits which varied in amounts which i have rented cars for ever 30 years for work and pleasure and never experienced such horrendous service. we asked to talk to a manager and they said he was to busy. It was like a big scam. thee were many other customers in the lobby at this location and all were complaining about the same things that we experienced. the amount quoted was was difference and when asked why they said oh you got here to early. that was not the case and then they said they don't know why it applied and said it was a system problem. On our way back to the airport there was a husband and wife and two single gentlemen who where upset as they had reservations and they were told they did not have cars for them. It was truly the worst experience that we have ever had when traveling. The are of the car lot was dirty and made you feel very unsafe. We will never rent from this company again nor should anyone else. All the people at the location need to be trained professionally and Know that you can charge whatever they want to your bill. their answer they give you is read the fine print as it says additional charges may be added. Horrible way to run a business! Very dissapointedCons: Close it down. Read comments above. A scam!
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 12
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: SUV was not available but they planned on charging me the same price for a lower class vehicle. I had to advocate for a lower rate and manager had to approve.
4.0 Okay2020 Oct 12
Cons: The car was dirty on the inside and out. We were given the option of waiting for car to be cleaned or paying more for upgrade. We ended up paying more because we were pressed for time. We were bullied into pre paying for gas. The sales person lied to us saying the nearest gas station was 20 miles away when in fact Costco was 2 miles away from location. Will not use this company again.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 07
Pros: None of it.Cons: The customer service was horrible and the manager was extremely rude. The cars were not clean or sanitized. Had to switch cars 4 times because each one had a mechanical issue, and cars were clearly not been serviced and maintained properly. Would not recommend this rental company to anyone.

I did not notice it was a "shuttle" service to pick up the car and it took a while to find the pick up spot. No fun since they did not answer phone.

Pretty poor pickup/customer servicePros: The car was clean/in good condition. The price was reasonable.Cons: The woman at the front desk was exceptionally rude and unprofessional. On her cell phone throughout the conversation. She made me get out of line after waiting about 45 minutes to be helped, because the fraud detection fired on my card and it declined. I was on the phone with chase and had it remedied in less that 5 minutes, but had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes to get back in line and be helped. My boyfriend offered to put the hold on his card, but they refused and said I would have to ad him as an authorized driver and pay more if we did that. All and all I’d say find a different place. I wouldn’t use them again, even though the car was fine. I was seeing red leaving here.
5.6 Okay2018 Sep 09
Pros: The associate was very helpful in explaining everything.Cons: This was my first time renting a car and it was a mixed experience. The car wasn't very clean when I received it. When I made the reservation with a drop off of 4:30 AM, I wasn't told they would be closed and that I'd just have to leave it outside the gate. Also, I wasn't told about the $200 deposit they take at the counter.

2.0 Mediocre2020 Jun 24
Pros: I ended up canceling the reservation the day I was to pick up the car and ended up using another company. The number given in the confirmation email to call once you land for shuttle service to pick up the car was no longer in service so I googled for a different number. That brought you to an automatic messaging instructing you to call the same number to arrange airport pick up. After about an hour of waiting unsure of whether or not any shuttle was coming I received a text saying someone would be by in about another hour to pick us up. By that point i had already canceled the reservation and booked with Avis and picked the car up at the airport, no shuttle necessary.
5.6 Okay2020 Jun 24
Cons: The van was not a newer van it had 73k miles and the tires were scalloped so at highway speeds we were in a cement shaker. We called about 45 mins out for a trade and they declined to meet us. Anytime we called for pickup it required multiple attempts to reach someone and even though we gave an hour notice when we were returning the attendant was not at the office and we waited 10 mins for him because he did not receive the Multiple calls of our arrival It was useable van but a mediocre experience on all fronts but it was cheaper by $100 I would get a nicer van and pay the $100 more

Pros: No information provided re; you must in call for Airport pick up. Shuttle easy to miss being a red GMC van with NO signage on sides (like all the other companies) - only a curling paper sign in window on drivers side.Cons: Sketchy location. Seedy Ramada Inn room with badly stained carpet. Replace with nicer wood/tile flooring. Need signage out front for AVR, signage needed on Shuttle Van, instructions clearly stating need to call Airport for Shuttle pick-up on confitmation email.

FIREFLY CLOSED EARLYPros: We were not given a chance to use them.Cons: Our flight arrived at 1:15AM and Firefly's hours were until 2:00 AM. They decided to close early and left many families stranded at the airport. We ended up using Budget and paying more because we did not have a reservation. When we called Firefly, the number did not lead to the SLC location and the person kept telling us on the phone that they should be there and that they were on a break. We waited more than 10 minutes. Budget told us they left for the day/eve. Bad service. Don't use them unless you're sure they will be open.
