Cons:The line at the airport rental desk was 20 people deep. we waited 15 minutes and no one in line moved. perhaps there was some trouble, but we did not see anyone leave the desk to get their rental car. there were 3 agents at the desk. we decided that it would be better to get a lLyft to take us from the airport to our destination, 40 miles away. The cost of the Lyft from and back to the airport was less than the cost of the rental car. There was no way to modify or change the rental, so I lost $145. Next time we will just use Lyft.Reviewed 2021 Apr 19

review fromkayak
Pros:The car was nice and clean.Cons:The customer service and communication. After getting our confirmation for our car the morning of the pick up we arrive and have to wait 2-3 hours for our car. No compensation and no cares were given from the staff. Worst experience I’ve ever had and they had plenty of time to notify renters of the issue but chose not to so they could still get our money. I will never use thrifty again.Reviewed 2021 Jan 05

review fromkayak
Pros:Online booking Thrifty through Kayak was user-friendly. Excellent price.Cons:Thrifty Customer Service Check-Out Desk was not staffed upon arrival and departure at MSP Airport. It was very confusing especially at an airport where the terminals are not directly connected. Had to figure out that Hertz car rental at Terminal 1 (I arrived at Terminal 2) was the alternative car rental that checked out the vehicle to me. Recommend sending out customer notification via email or text the customer(s) ahead of time to allow for any unexpected change at any airport.Reviewed 2020 Nov 25

You have a very friendly and helpful staff.Cons:It was excellent all the way around, from reserving to renting to returning! Superior service!Reviewed 2020 Nov 11
