Great service, nice location. The car had Steering drift to the left, and I could never get the cruise control to work. Bluetooth to the phone was inconsistent; sometimes it worked, other times it didn’t. Not major issues but the steering issue could have been a safety issue.Reviewed 2022 Jul 18

The representative left prior to my, and another passenger’s, arrival according to the other rental representatives. The other agencies were booked solid so I had to Uber to my final destination.Reviewed 2022 Jun 25

Could have had a snow scraper to help clear the windshield the next morning. Sun, warming the car and a credit card finally did the trick.Reviewed 2022 Mar 14

Couple of details. Big issue developed unnecessarily when car auto-locked with “key” thing inside. With no information given on door code we were in an interesting situation. No one at Avis was able to supply the code (which is ridiculous ). One person finally somehow remotely unlocked the thing. All so unnecessary Also , the license plate tab was 8 months out of date. Glad we weren’t stopped by the highway patrol!Reviewed 2021 Oct 23

Did not pick up the car because the line at the rental counter was so completely utterly ridiculous. Wound up renting from Hertz instead.Reviewed 2021 Sep 20

Customer service was very rude when picking up the car. My booking reservation stated personal auto insurance was not required, however, at pick-up the woman refused to honor my booking and said she couldn’t proceed with my registration. She said thrifty was recently bought by another company as if that would explain why the booking was not updated to state your own insurance was needed. If that is thrifty’s policy, okay, but the booking reservation which I booked days in advance needs to reflect that…. Especially now when it is difficult to reserve a car. Moreover, she was incredibly rude, and my experience was very negative that it makes me question what kind of service and support I would have if I were to rent a car to the extent I will never rent from Thrifty. I went to Alamo next door and it was night and day. The customer service was so friendly and helpful, that I trusted them. Definitely don’t trust Thrifty and won’t be back.Reviewed 2021 Jul 11

In my haste to leave on my trip to put my mother on hospice, I forgot my credit card at home. Counter clerk was rude and unhelpful. I was stressed. I ended up going to Avis who would rent to me using a debit card. By the way, my mother did pass. I will not recommend Thrifty.Reviewed 2021 Jun 24
