Pros:Good price, easy drop offCons:the car they gave me had large scratches in the paint. They offered to upgrade for an 80% price increaseReviewed 2021 Jan 20
review fromkayak
Cons:My main complaint is with the billing process. It was written in my confirmation that "Thrify charged the total cost of this reservation ($85.25) to your credit card today." However, when I picked up the car I was charged an additional $21.17 in miscellaneous services charges and taxes. I have rented cars and purchased flights through Kayak for many years and have never before experienced this "bait and switch" technique. I don't know if this scam was the fault of Kayak, Thrifty or but suffice to say, I won't be using any of these companies again. If I can't trust you to quote me a fair price, then we can't do business with each other.Reviewed 2021 Apr 18

Thrifty Ripped me offPros:The people were nice and patient and the quoted price was very goodCons:When I checked out, they had inflated the bill to five times what the contract said and didn't have a good explanation.Reviewed 2016 Feb 23

Was given the wrong type of vehiclePros:Everyone I dealt with was pleasant and helped me rather quickly. Easy to check the car out.Cons:I was expecting a car, but ended up getting a CX5, which is more van than car. Wasn't too pleased with that, seeing as I paid for a Standard-sized vehicle. My complaint is that I wanted a vehicle with a trunk because I had valuables I wanted to conceal. I didn't want people to see the laptops I was taking around in big Lenovo boxes, and I had no abilities to take them into the hotels with me. The CX5, even with the ample storage space, there was no chance to hide anything, even with different seat configurations, everything was extremely visible. Also, I am a tall person and the seat didn't go back far enough to be comfortable in my hundreds of miles of commuting.Reviewed 2015 Nov 16

Low price but far awayPros:The price was the lowest of all the car rental agencies .Cons:It is a long walk from baggage claim to pick up the car. And there was no drop off area for Thrifty at Burbank. You drop off the car the same place you picked it up.Reviewed 2016 Jan 12

Pros:The car itself was comfortable. Black on black was very nice. Needed cleaning on the outside.Cons:There is a discrepancy in what is presented when I called and the actual price when you arrive at rental office. I believe I paid too much for what I received. The attitude of the representative on site was initially kind of funky, but ended on a good note. It was Okay in Burbank, coulsd have been much better if everyone says the same thing price wise.Reviewed 2017 Feb 03
review fromkayak
Pros:Very easy quick pickup with very minimal discussion of insurance and not much paperwork.Cons:Car seemed to be having a minor mechanical problem- it shuddered a bit. Had 33,000 miles on it. It didn't cause any problems for me though.Reviewed 2017 Oct 31

Roadside Service Never RespondedCons:We did not know that if you leave the car running (on a hot day with the AC running) it automatically locks after a minute or two. We called and were told that roadside service would respond in an hour. 3 hours later, after calling back and contacting roadside service twice, no one came to let us into the car. We had to call our credit card service and pay $59 to get someone to come out in 30 minutes and immediately unlock the car.Reviewed 2017 Jun 22
