Pros: Staff was ok. Drop off easy.
Cons: Cars are extremely overpriced right now I believe Hawaii is making up for what they lost in revenue during the Covid restrictions. To pay $1400 for one week versus $300 like we used to seems pretty ridiculous. Obviously you do it because you want to go but it seems evident to me what they’re doing with the prices… Making up for lost revenue.
Pros: Everything was easy! We upgraded and got a great deal for that. Front counter attendant was awesome.
Pros: Staff was indifferent. Not nice... but not rude. Simply going through the motions.
Cons: I canceedl my rental 3 days in advance but was never able to get in touch with anyone from Kayak or from Thrifty to discuss their cancellation policy. I called multiple agencies who told me I had the wrong department and then they transferred me to a different department only to be told that I had contacted the wrong department. They said someone would call me. No one has reached out. I will never use Thrifty again, and I probably won’t use Kayak again either. Terrible experience. I wasted so much time on my honeymoon.
Pros: Everything was super easy, but I was never told about the surprise $52 charge that I received once I arrived to the car rental place. If your going to charge it due to picking up in an airport you should tell people or add it to the price. Seems very dishonest and unprofessional.
Cons: Add the $52 tax charge to the price of the rental so it’s not an unwelcome surprise for people at the start of their trip.
Cons: The vehicle broke down and I had to leave the vehicle and walk to the airport to get a replacement. They do not answer the phone. When someone finally answered and I told them that I was stranded, they placed me on hold for 43 minutes.
Pros: Friendly staff and ease of renting
Pros: Easy in. Easy out. The price I expected to pay is exactly what I paid. The car I expected to receive is exactly the car I received.
Cons: I honestly don't know. Maybe lemon air freshenner in the car?
Pros: Staff at Kahului airport were polite.....only two reps working with about 10 rep spaces empty..mgr actually came out of the back room and reminded that only drivers should be in the line, then she went back to her room,she should have gone to a computer and started helping..took forever to get to a rep...line was to the door...yes, that was with drivers only in line
Returning the vehicle was much easier...
Cons: More reps should be on the floor...the play stayed packed each time the airport shuttle showed up. THERE WERE NO VEHICLES IN THE GARAGE TO GET!!!!! It was a joke.....several groups of people waiting for their vehicles....we waited probably 45 minutes....the mgr came out of her room again and told everyone in the garage area to just go pick a vehicle and get in it...ANY vehicle!!!! A couple of people found vehicles way back against a barrier and took them... our suv finally showed up...was reserved as FULL size....a Chev Terrain is NOT full size....A TAHOE like I booked is full size......Will have to seriously think about renting from them again at Kahului airport.....
Pros: No car available when we arrived and had to wait 30 minutes. Rented an intermediate SUV but got a full size which was way too big. Turned car in with a full tank but was charged $86 on final receipt. Even told the attendant I filled the tank and showed him the receipt and he said okay.
Cons: Not many choices of premium cars.
Pros: Pick up process was easy and fast; counter agent was efficient and friendly.
Cons: Pick up damage assessment only requires damage larger than a golf ball however when returning the car agency documented damage outside those requirements
