review fromkayak
Pros:Yes the staff was helpful and polite. Most notably the return was exceptionally quick and easy.Cons:More counter help. The customer in front of me asked EVERY question imaginable and some that were unimaginable and then of course the attendant was trying to up sell. Sorry but the last thing you want to do after a long day of traveling is to wait in line unnecessarily. Once they got done our transaction went smoothly and we were on our way.Reviewed 2020 Feb 04

Pros:Helpful staff, efficient, quick pick up and drop off.Reviewed 2019 Dec 21
review fromkayak
Pros:Drop off was off hours. The signage for Hertz was poor. Only Avis and budget were marked prominently on the lot. Signage and instructions could be more obvious.Cons:Thrifty pickup was poor as no cars were available. They had to shuttle me to the local Hertz instead to complete the contract. It took about 1.5hrs to get my vehicle. Once gotten, it was fine as it looks like they gave me an upgraded car-by choice or not, I don’t know.Reviewed 2019 Aug 19
