Pick up was easy and had a great car for my trip. How to drop the car off at LAX Marriott was confusing. There were no directions and no signage.

Easy booking, easy drop-off, very nice/clean car, wonderful woman at exit to check you out. Horrible customer service upon pick-up at Hertz but she was the only negative part of the whole experience.

I got a better deal than with other rentacar vendors. Hertz, who used to be a pricey and snooty car rental agency, gave me a better deal than I could get with Dollar, Budget, Thrifty, etc.

Glad to have upgrade. However, the Ford Focus should not have been used as the model car for compact. Front desk said they no longer have that model and that was basically false advertising.

Car was clean & in good condition. Excellent communication from everyone especially the manager Tess & the lady who checked us out at the gate, they could not have been friendlier or more helpful. One exception of when picking up the young lady did not seem to know we were covered for insurance & presented us with a bill for $99 she said which was for an extra day, we were not taking an extra day which was clearly stated on our rental voucher (which she did not want to see) I questioned the amount to be charged & this was amended immediately. Overall would definitely use this service again.

Great staff at the Oakland, CA Hertz desk when I picked up the car. I think her name is Breja (?) and she was fantastic - great customer service, fast, friendly, respectful (she had a "Karen" to wait on right before me) and I appreciated her speed in getting me in and out. Returning car to Oakland was effortless. Don't know WHY I haven't used Hertz regularly before but it's on my list for the next trip to CA in October. Thank you and please thank her, too!

Thrifty counter was unmanned and had to use Hertz counter to be served. Waited for an hour to get a car. Staff was surly. However we ended up with a car a couple grades above compact. Clean good running car that still got 40+mpg. Dropped car off at LAX, so I can’t speak to the drop off experience in Oakland, but it was very straightforward. Drive up, park, and walk away. Zero interaction with people whatsoever. That could be good or bad, depending on your preference.

Had no problems at all with this rental. From the time the reservation was made to the time the car was dropped off. Extremely easy from pick up & drop-off. Seamless process. The car was ready, clean when picked up, and ready to go. And the value for money was excellent. I shopped directly with several major brands (Hertz, Avis, Budget, etc.) and this was by far the cheapest price.

Ridiculous wait times at pick up. Ended up having to cancel and get a car from another provider
2.0 Mediocre2021 Nov 12
The service that I encountered during pick-up was most likely the worst I had ever to endure. The Thrifty counter at OAK was closed and customers redirected to the Hertz section. At Hertz we saw two lines -- one for Hertz, the other for Thrifty/Dollar. The line on the Hertz section consisted of 2 people, the other line of 40!! Suddenly, the person assigned to book in Thrifty customers went for lunch (at 10am)!! We were waiting for over 2 hours. When we finally got the car and were leaving the parking lot, only one window was open, the lady at the gate completely incapable of dealing with all the cars, so it took us again 30 minutes to leave the lot. It should be embarrassing to an established rental car company as Thrifty to treat customers so badly. I hope you find a way to ask us for forgiveness. Best wishes, Vsevolod RAHR

Waited 45min in the Hertz line after searching 30min for a Thrifty Rep. Then told they have my reserves rental car away so I could wait an hour and maybe get one. The extended time made me get deeper into rush hour traffic. I was told there were 3 others waiting doe cars. Heard managers laugh Ian’s having a good time in the back room while we waited in line which made it feel like they could have come up to help. Ended up getting a Lyft and just reminded me of why it’s been 10yrs since I rented a car.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 13
This was the second worst car rental experience I've ever had, and I will NEVER rent from a Thrifty agency again UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. They wouldn't take my company credit card as payment, even though I was allowed to book the car online with that same exact card ahead of time. They also couldn't provide any explanation as to why that would be the case. It took about 30 minutes to go through the check-in process even though I had booked ahead of time. I was at a Hertz window, because no one was present at the Thrifty counter at all, and even though I am a Hertz Gold Club member no information from Hertz could be used and they had a completely different set of policies, which the woman once again couldn't explain. I'm honestly considering canceling my Hertz Gold Club membership as well. It was that bad. Next time I'll just use rideshare and hope that a number of these POS rental car companies go extinct.

The car that they originally assigned to me at the Oakland Airport location turned out to be dead - would not start. For some reason, the electrical system was not functioning. The woman attendant at the Budget lot resolved the problem immediately and provided me with a new SUV that was excellent. She was very friendly and efficient. I wish I had gotten her name so that I could acknowledge her professionalism by name. Budget has a great employee there! The car was wonderful, and the folks at the Tucson airport were very efficient and friendly too.

Took an hour to get the car at pickup. One agent on duty for 40 customers. Reserved a hybrid but was given a Kia Soul. With gas prices what they are in California it had a big impact on my budget. I chose Budget specifically for the hybrid.

Sorry my bad. I screwed up. Will actually not fully my fault. I did indicate I wanted to rent from SFO airport and it also apparently gave me options for Oakland airport rentals and I rented a car from there without realizing. Duh! Will anyway it was nonrefundable and I'm screwed out of $140. So since kayak sent me a request via email for a review of my car rental it's fair to say it didn't go so well!

The car was great, no complaints. And the lady at the pick up counter went out of her way to make sure everything was right- kudo's to her. My one issue was when I called to ask about shuttles returning to the airport from the Car Rental Center about a mile and a half away. We had an early flight (5:40 am) and I was told the shuttle didn't start until 6:00 am. This didn't seem logical, I couldn't see you doing that to your customers, but he insisted. That means I could drop off the car and put the key in the drop box, but have no way to get to the airport in time for my flight without taking a taxi, Uber, or Lyft??? I suppose I could walk it through Oakland, CA at night, with one of the highest crime rates in the country. I wouldn't look like a target at all to the gang bangers in my cowboy hat and boots, dragging a suitcase, with my wife and daughter trailing behind dragging theirs... I'm sure we'd blend right in. Thankfully, he was wrong- the shuttle did run as logic would dictate. But he had me in panic mode scrambling for options. May I suggest updated training and reference materials. I was ready to blackball Fox Rentals from all my future business and personal travel.

Going/checking in and out was a speedy process. The rental car was ready as expected. Unfortunately though, there were too many hidden fees like insurance and prepaid gas fees that were never mentioned and not explained thoroughly! On the kayak, the final price was $110 for 2 day rental. But in reality, FOX charged me $250! What a shame to charge me that much. I’m never going back to use FOX ever!

Absolutely terrible customer service. Car smelled like mildew on pickup. Drove with windows down first 2 days to air it out. Then left house keys attached to rental keys in drop box on return. No one answers phone no call backs took a week to get a hold of anyone. Still no call, no email. No follow up whatsoever. I even offered for a friend to to pick keys up. Their response, we will put your info in and contact you if found. Will not be using fox again.

Great service, uncomfortable car.Customer service at the airport was great, very helpful and friendly. They also moved us through pretty fast even though it was holiday travel week.The car wasn't comfortable. They were out of the type of car we had rented so moved us to another type that wasn't comfortable at all. They promised a discount for the change but the receipt wasn't clear when we returned the car. Traveling with children during the holidays and catching a flight out meant I now have to call to try and iron it all out. Overall a good experience.

We went to pick up the car and were told that all of their SUV's were 2 wheel drive unless you paid extra- like $190 extra. That is more than the cost of my rental to begin with! I didn't even realize you could purchase SUV's without 4WD. Such a scam.

Unhappy CustomerReserved a mid sized car and was given a Jeep Patriot CUV. Interior of car had a unpleasant smell i.e faint odor of cigarette smoke. Coarse engine, loud road noise, and rough ride made for a mediocre driving experience. Also, I had declined rental damage insurance but was charged $17.95 on my credit card for insurance. Attempted to call Avis using telephone number on rental agreement. Automated answering service forwarded my call to another car company. Finally reached Avis customer service and was informed they had no record of my credit card being charged for insurance. Still trying to resolve issue.
