Cons: Nice car that we picked up at the Knoxville airport TYS.... we had a frriendly staff but they sent us to the parking lot to get car without any staff checking the mini van with us. When we drove 2 hours to drop it off at the Tri Cities airport TRI... we left key with the staff without anyone checking the car again but simply handing them the keys and saying goodbye .I got a call later that evening asking about a dent somewhere on the car.... I explained we had not reviewed the car with the Knoxville staff and we had no incidences in the 3 hours we had the car.... BUT both staffs should have looked and reviewed the car before and after use with me so that all would have been documented and there would have been no questions. Thank you Amy Williams 423-360-7369

Pros: Pick up at counter was superb. Staff was great!
8.4 Excellent31 Dec 2019
Pros: The staff were great. When I picked up the car, the exterior was NOT clean. When I returned it, I told the rep about my experience and she made it "all right" by giving me an expected credit. That was really a nice touch.
8.0 Excellent25 Nov 2019
Pros: Car was great, quoted price was good but bc my plane was an hour early the charges for $100 , 25% higher. i could see an extra $20 or something for the extra hour but 100 is ridiculous. I dropped it off early to see if I get that miney back, still have not seen a receipt so i have no idea what I paid for this car the other day.

Cons: Èverything but pick up was positive. Line to pick up car was long. Waited 45 min to get to the counter. Then had to wait 20 min for the vehicle to be ready.
8.0 Excellent30 May 2020
Pros: Pick up was good. Drop off no one anywhere so had to leave keys in a box. Would have like a to be checked out and get a receipt.Cons: The tumbler when you turned the key stuck sometimes so you had to play with it to get it to turn. New Car strange!

10.0 Excellent23 Aug 2019
Pros: Staff lovely! Car ready, clean, new
5.6 Okay24 Jan 2019
Cons: Filled up tank prior to drop off, used at most .5 gallons of gasoline and was then charged for 2 gallons despite the “miles remaining” being 40 more than when I picked it up. Also, was told to either pay the deductible for my insurance or purchase $25 waiver not sure if this is a new thing or what.
8.8 Excellent11 Nov 2018

8.4 Excellent19 Aug 2018

Pros: Nothing!!!!!Cons: Arrived at the airport early/on time Went to the rental desk and gave the gentleman my name , he just laughed out loud at me and said they did not have any cars left , when asked how that could be correct as I had reservations and had prepaid he just laughed again ( out loud) and said ya... crazy isn’t it and refused to talk to me any more about it Thank goodness national/enterprise was open and they more then helpful with me to get me in a car I will not use Triffty car rental ever again and I’m on the fence about price line ( I will have to see how getting my money back goes first ) awful experience was so upset , thank goodness for National/enterprise....... I mad it to my only sons wedding

An "okay" rental this time...Pros: The staff was very friendly, and the rate was inexpensive.Cons: The ad said that I would be getting a Chevy Malibu or similar, only to be given a Jeep Renegade 4x4. Just not the type of vehicle to drive on a long road trip.
4.4 Okay14 Feb 2018
Pros: The person at the counter was nice but not accomodatingCons: I reserved a car for a price and when I get there, the special was a pick up truck. If I needed a pick up truck, i would just specifically order one. Then I had to pay more for a compact care. The old bait and switch. I was disappointed. I could have gotten the same car with a competitor for less.

3.6 Mediocre29 Nov 2017
Just a headacheCons: Originally the car was supposed to be 150 total but ended up being 350 for absolute nonsense reasons. I never get insurance on a rental because i have insurance myself. it seems they always charge you for it though. The car was very dirty inside with stains on the front passenger seat and hair in the trunk (likely from an animal).

Pros: I really enjoyed driving the car. I have had several rentals before and your car was far better.Cons: Nothing

Pros: NothingCons: The reservation did not work. Terms and conditions applied that more than doubled the price (drop off fee). The agent at the desk was rude and unhelpful. Ended up going to Alamo which offered a decent price on the spot.
2.0 Mediocre16 Dec 2019
Cons: They had canceled our reservation and car not available. Our flight canceled and rescheduled to later in day- not under our control. Sales person not nice and seemed bothered that we were bothering her. Not helpful at all. We rented from budget - they were very helpful and actually less expensive

Will never use Dollar againPros: NothingCons: I booked a one-way rental, yet when I arrived at the airport the clerk told me they didn't do one-way rentals from this location. I showed her my reservation and she said too bad, it is not possible. She refused to let me speak with a manager (until the next day). I had to go through another rental company which ended up costing me more since it was last-minute.
6.0 Good30 Jan 2018
Pros: Overall it was ok! Great vehicleCons: The lady wasn't at the desk when we showed up and there were some hidden fees that were unexpected that were not on the email confirmation. Other than that it was good
6.0 Good7 Dec 2017
Pros: Price; pick-up clerk was friendly; drop off clerk was friendly.Cons: Stains on seats; previous damage - front bumper was slightly separated from car body - previous damage; handed 2 parts of 3 part form to note damage but no one at guard shack to accept noted damages; no cruise control that I could find.
6.8 Good26 Sep 2017

4.0 Okay17 Aug 2017
Car unavailable and additional feesCons: Only trucks were available (at additional cost) and an additional $7 fee would be added based on the region in which the vehicle would be used.
3.2 Mediocre30 Jul 2017
Slow ServicePros: Not MuchCons: Had to stand at counter 45 Minutes to pick up car, I have been overcharged by $31,still waiting for the adjustment
2.0 Mediocre28 Jul 2017
No cars to be found.Pros: Reserved a car online on a third-party travel website at a great price.Cons: Arrived at McGhee-Tyson Airport in Knoxville and found an unmanned rental counter with a line 7-people deep. One of the customers in line said a rental agent had left with a customer and said he'd be back in 15-20 minutes. Another customer called Dollar and was told there were no cars available. At that point, I also called Dollar and was told that no cars would be available for three days and that I could get on a waiting list. It being nearly 10pm, I asked them to cancel my reservation. Because all of the other rental companies were also out of cars, I ended up paying $40 for a cab and then having to deal with acquiring a car offsite for a good part of the following day. And paying $50 extra to return that car to the airport at the end of the week. That wasn't Dollar, but it would have been avoided if Dollar had come through. Apparently, having a reservation means nothing anymore.

Expect Less!!Pros: Nothing at all. Poor customer service & problematic cars!!Cons: After waiting in line for 20 mins to get a car. I was given a Nissan Sentra. Went to the car. settled in the stuff. Start the car & it had the check engine light on. Went back to the agent & asked to change the car. Next car that I was given was also a Sentra. The car was dirty inside outside. I told the guys working there. The car looks filthy. Was told the car wash is broken & they are sorry. I decide to take the car without wasting much of my time. The music system was broken. Speaker had too much static. So no music on a 1+ hr of drive. Later that evening it started raining. The cars wipers wont work. They left a smudge on the windscreen. It was too difficult & unsafe to drive. While returning the car when I informed the agent about the problem. She acted as if she didnt care or she already knew but, dont bother getting issues fixed.
8.8 Excellent20 Aug 2018
Almost perfectPros: Mostly everything.Cons: Gas level was NOT at full upon rental’s pick-up. It was at approximately 7/8 tank upon pickup of vehicle but I was expected to leave the Gas level full upon return. (Which I did). The whole matter was not worth making an issue over but I have a time stamped photo (proof) of the Gas level on the gauge upon pick-up. ...Just an annoyance. Otherwise I would rent through this service again.
4.8 Okay4 Jul 2018
Not a great deal!Pros: The car brand, a Mazda 6, was roomy and well made. Had the potential as a good car.Cons: First, we had to wait for over 30 minutes for a car, not acceptable. When we received the car, it had damage to 3 of the four corners, and was fairly beat up overall....still am worried they will try to come after me even though the damage was preexisting. When we went to return the car, there was NOT a sign for Payless returns, instead they expected you to know where they wanted you to go (with the Budget returns). as simple sign would have helped. Due to the above, paying a little more for a better rental is my plan for the future.

bait and switch!!!Cons: there is a mandatory "service fee" because they don't really have an office there but its in Nashville. If you need road side service it comes from there so they make the customer pay for it. It was NOT quoted in any of the disclosures on my reservation. I will never rent there again. DW

I returned back to the airport and they quickly gave me another vehicle. New vehicle was clean but I had to pump air into tires since a few of them had very low pressure. Overall, I was happy with the service but I believe these should be taken are of beforehand.
