They didn’t have our vehicle so we had to PAY for an upgrade to fit our family. The lady we dealt with was rude as heck. The upgrade we paid for was dirty with food and mold in the cup holders. NEVER AGAIN!Reviewed 2022 Jul 10

All the extra fees are really what annoys me. The original quote online is nowhere near the final cost. There needs to be more accurate quotes.Reviewed 2022 May 25

The person never gave me a walkthrough of the vehicle at pick up, she talked too fast and was hard to understand. The vehicle had many minor dings and scrapes I needed to file with kayak to cover myself incase they blamed me for themReviewed 2021 Dec 20

The dropoff system is terrible. Why is there not an immediate confirmation of the return? My return was to a parking garage, not an airport office. But why is the system not good in this location? It's days later, and I'm still trying to get the rental closed.Reviewed 2021 Nov 16

We were in and out quickly. The car they gave us was a great car and return was very simple and easy and the shuttle was right there waiting for us. Everyone was cordial and nice. Will definitely look into using again.Reviewed 2021 Oct 26

The pick up took over an hour of waiting. This company needs to invest in technology that will speed up the check in process.Reviewed 2021 Oct 25

The problem wasn't with the pickup in Philadelphia, which was fine, but with drop-off in Washington DC. No employee showed up for work in the morning when I was supposed to drop the car off (this is the 7th St NW location). After waiting more than an hour and a half someone finally showed up, but said the office was closed despite Thrifty continuing to book reservations from and to this location. She reluctantly took the car, but this is incredibly poor service.Reviewed 2021 Sep 08

The quote I signed up for was incredible. After getting a second charge, I called Thrifty. Supposedly, they are trying to say there was $98 in taxes, just kept saying $55 was our taxes, but couldn't tell me what that meant, and when I requested an email copy of the bill, never sent it. Phuk Thrifty. On a positive note, the front desk guy for Thrifty in Philly was AWESOME. So, just be aware my issue was with undisclosed "taxes" that I have no idea what was even for. (They explained the logical $31 for sales tax).Reviewed 2021 Aug 31

The women I delt with picking up the car was incredibly rude. She had MSNBC playing in the background and when I couldn't hear her speak and asked her to turn it down, she was very nasty afterwards and gave me so much attitude, while I was nothing but polite and professional. The car was gross as hell. Definitely wasn't washed on the inside as there was sweat stains everywhere, trash and personal effects In the car. Told the man at the gate about some bumps, like I was instructed too, but he didn't seem to write any of the information down. Trip went off without a hitch after that(was about a 6-7 hour drive through a tropical storm). But when trying to return the car I had issues. First of all I called the number provided to me in the email and was given incorrect information. I told him my drop of location, he kept insisting that it was the Boston airport even though I told him otherwise three times. He said an after hour drop off there would be ok then when completing the call said "Thank you for calling hertz". So since I couldn't trust him to even know what company he worked for, I called a different number and spoke to someone who knew what they were talking about. They said if I wanted to switch my drop off location it would cost me $70!? This would have been a location less then 5 miles away. So I said no and she them informed me the location I have is set up for after hours returns. The return location was in a parking garage with extremely tight walls and when I get there. All of the designated thrifty spots are full 😡 I was very frustrated again. I had to call them up and ask if it was ok to leave in an empty spot on the same floor, which they said was fine. The stress of that and the fact that they still have a pending charge on my credit card for double the agreed rental price a week after I returned the car is making me worry they will try to charge me for some bs after the fact. If at all possible I would avoid the car rental agency like the plague and go with more established ones.Reviewed 2021 Aug 29
