At the Honolulu Thrift counter they wasted 15 minutes of my time trying to upsell a car I didn’t want. They went ahead and charged me for the upgrade anyway, without me realizing it. When picking up the car from the lot I realized they were giving me an upgrade which I declined and asked to go back to the car I booked, which they did. Just returned my car today after the trip. The final “auto” invoice had the upgrade charge added. Now I am fighting with Thrifty’s customer service to take the upgrade fee off my invoice (and charge me for the car I actually used)! Very unethical and terrible service.Reviewed 2022 Aug 03

The rental line was to long. Waited to long. The car smelled bad and everything was not cleaned.Reviewed 2022 Jul 31

Could have had a better explanation of the taxes n fees that were added. Also, a better explanation of the pre-paid fuel charge.Reviewed 2022 Jul 17

The cars were old, and dirty. They don’t clean them between users. Ketchup stains in one vehicle and sunscreen all over the other. The fleet was pretty run down.Reviewed 2022 May 19

Car not well-maintained. Needed a mechanic. I received a new car that had been treated poorly by previous drivers; wear and tear was evident, including an unidentifiable (and somewhat alarming) hard rattle from somewhere near the rear wheels. (Suspension? Axle? Bad shocks?) I only felt comfortable in the car because I was not traveling long distance.Reviewed 2022 Apr 14

hour long line on pickup.. only 2 agents working.. called day 10 to extend rental ... they insisted on using the same Visa confirmation number which was used on the original rental. crazy... called our bank/visa... need to apply to same card but new confirmation... bank said "happens all the time with Thrifty".. banks not going to re-open a confirmation... just put through another.. therefore, per Thrifty in India, we had to take a day of vacation, drive to Honolulu airport Thrifty, go through hour long line to "re-do" application to achieve extension... said hell with it.. called enterprise .. unloaded golf clubs, diving equipment etc from car, hauled from parking lot to room. Took car back to Thrifty on last day of contract, turned in, then walked around the airport to Enterprise and rented a substitute car for the rest of the stay.. Still lost a half day messing around with the problem.. plus "the hassle !!!!!" all because Thrifty's software is fouled up... plus the long line cking in, plus car with high mileage, plus passenger seat had "steel" frame which tore into you leg every time getting out of the SUV. Not good... no more Thrifty..Reviewed 2022 Mar 03

Pick up time was scheduled 02/17/2022 at 4pm. I was at the desk to check in by 3pm. Registration was simple but the wait time was horrible. We didn’t get our requested vehicle til 5:45 pm. Vehicle was still wet from being car washed.Reviewed 2022 Feb 28

I rented from Thrifty in Honolulu last October and the new location is SO much better. I expected a long, hot wait in line to pick up my car, and I think I was done in maybe 15 minutes. Everything was perfectly smooth.Reviewed 2022 Feb 09
