Had to wait over an hour in line to pick up the car at O’Hare and the customer service was so slow. I would not recommend.Reviewed 2022 Aug 09

Super long wait at Chicago Airport pickup. About 1:30. One counter for both Thrifty AND Dollar, with 2-3 clerks. Clerk's instructions about fuel prepaying and toll paying were unclear, and when I asked for her to repeat, she just said "Whatever, just take care of it". Probably just wanted to get over the huge queue and I get that, but still really bad customer service. She asked for me to write down my personal information on a boarding pass-like paper, with address, email and phone, when other companies around have a QR code for you to scan and enter these details in advance. Could be good for time saving in case of big queue ups like this was...Reviewed 2022 Jul 31

I got overcharged than what's on my receipt and don't know why. I don't mean the deposit which was refunded. I returned it with more fuel than I started with. So this is a scam rental car company that I will never use again for the $20 overcharge. Good luck loosing a customer for $20Reviewed 2022 Jul 15

There was a line of 100 people and only two employees working behind the counter at O'HARE location in Chicago ( meanwhile the other car rental companies next to them had 5 or 6 people working behind the counter) .. I waited in line 2 hours and 30 minutes and it was miserable because I already had a reservation at noon because I had to to to a wedding that day like 4 hours away .. A lots of nasty actitud from the people working for "thrifty" .. on top of that they FORCE me to pay an extra 30 dollars a day for my car rental otherwise I'll have to wait for an undisclosed amount of time because according to them they didn't have cars available. But after I paid the extra money the car was available . This was so disrespectfulReviewed 2022 Jul 05

We picked up the car in a dirty state 1. There was rubbish including candy wrappers in the rear 2. the front floor and mats were soaking wet and we had to run a fan in the car overnight to dry it out. 3. There was white writing on the left passenger window that we couldnt remove.Reviewed 2022 Apr 24
