Terrible customer representatives at counter. Two didn’t know how to use the reservation confirmation number from a third party booking service. When their manager showed them, he pulled another woman who had a similar issue in front of me. I obliged patiently. But, when the next counter agent was free, she wouldn’t serve me as I was next in line as she said “he was taking care of me.” He was busy with the woman who I let step in front of me while he figured out how to complete a transaction from a third party. This happened two times befween tbe same two counter agents and it was absolutely ridiculous. If it weren’t Christmas I would have lost my temper. As it played out, my SUV didn’t have four wheel drive - a necessity for traveling into the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains in December. Further, they charged me for fuel when it was returned full. And I was also overcharged by $16 for fees and taxes that differed from my Rental Agreement issued at the counter. I’ll never book with Thrifty again. The small savings I may have incurred at booking were more than consumed by the excessive time I wasted waiting for cobbler service and subsequent communications about being overcharged. And to cap it all off, the Jeep Patriot had an annoying rattle in the rear of the car which was not fixable for my entire four day rental.Reviewed 2023 Dec 29

Pros:Staff was professionalCons:Waited 90 minutes in line to get to the counter. Was given a sub compact at compact price and told the car was a compact. The contract said Ford Focus or similar not Ford Fiesta or similarReviewed 2021 May 28

Pros:Staff was great, drop off was easy.Cons:Apparently Dollar and Thrifty are renting out of the same building, and I waited a full two hours to get to the counter. The line was horrendously long. The only reason I stayed on time was that I got there early to see if I could get a car early, otherwise my schedule would have been blown completely out of the water. PLEASE figure out how to separate the two companies for now!!Reviewed 2021 May 26

Cons:We waited TWO HOURS in line to pick up our vehicle. Only four agents who moved at a glacial pace. I understand that this is typical for Denver. Terrible. There must be a way to expedite the checkin process. Some people were with an agent 15-20 minutes. I won’t rent Thrifty againReviewed 2021 May 25

Pros:Made my reservation and they charged me double and told me that I waited to reserve the car causing it to double even though I had my print out. I was told according to them the charge was correct rather than trying to rectifan obvious glitch in the reservation. I canceled and went to another companyCons:They need to provide better customer serviceReviewed 2021 May 25

Pros:The drop off was easy.Cons:I wouldnt book through kayak or priceline, because my questions just got sent to every other customer service center (ie. AAA, thrifty. etc). The pickup was quite long considering there was only 2 or so individuals in line in front of me. The insurance I bought online had nothing to do with the insurance thrifty offered at the counter, so now i have to make sure I don't get charged for two separate insurance policies. My vehicle reservation didnt mean anything. There wasnt a single full sized sedan left on the lot, so I was stuck driving a full sized SUV which got very poor gas mileage. The SUV was kind of dirty with old candy in the center console. The shuttle also takes about 15+ minutes to get you to the counter/airport so keep that in mind when considering departure or arrival.Reviewed 2021 May 19

Pros:Absolutely nothing!Cons:I booked a great rental car price to run up to Ft. Collins to visit my son.... only to show up at the rental counter Dollar/ Thrifty and have at least 100+ people in line with 4 employees helping. Went next door to Sixt (paid double) but was out in 15 minutes. Guaranteed I would not have been helped within 2-3 HOURS at Thrifty.Reviewed 2021 May 18
