Easy to drive, clean, easy to return (in the daylight). I took the car back early (the same day I picked it up) and got a shuttle from my hotel to the airport the next morning so that I wouldn't have to navigate the return area at 5:30 a.m.

YesThe pick up agency tried to rent me the wrong size class car, and if I hadn't called them out on it, would have been charged for the smallest car they had when infect I paid for bigger.

Great staff, easy pickup and drop-off, no issues and good clean carsBetter signage in cape Canaveral location, but it's only due to hurricane damage - so understandable

They did not have the level of vehicle we reserved and were not helpful accommodating us even though it was their mistake.

Making the reservationNot being told that they don't have a car for me and it could be 3-4 hours before they do. Being told that others made reservations before mine and they will come first. Being charged an additional $40 for an upgrade if I really needed a car right now. Person acknowledging that they know it issue

The problem wasn’t with hertz, it was with kayak. I reserved a car, thru kayak, walked a couple miles to get to hertz, only to find out that there wasn’t ANY cars available. Don’t make reservations thru kayak.

Great rental, but long waitRental was quick, once I reached the counter. Car was just as advertised. Associate at the counter was courteous.It was a very long wait at Hertz, Cape Canaveral. I was only 5th or 6th in line, but I waited over 30 minutes. Also, to make matters worse, there was no AC in the building.

The quickness to the response of exchanging the car after the one they originally rented me had a malfunction and the upgrade to a large vehicle.the mysterious $9.99 Portside charge that was not outlined anywhere. I had made a call to budget to confirm any additional charges prior and was not made aware of that. When I arrived at the budget office they told me I will be charged an extra $9.99 which makes no sense as it appears be assigned arbitrarily to non local customers.

Totally convenientWe went on a cruise and were picked up immediately by a shuttle that took us to pick up our car. The gentleman that picked us up helped with our bags and was friendly. Our reservation was suppose to be at 12 but we were able to get our car a few hours early. It was convenient, accommodating, the car was in nice condition, staff was friendly, and the price was very affordable. Will definitely be doing business with them again.I have nothing that I was not happy with my experience

Pickup shuttleCar return was easy and quickOur rental pickup was from (N ATLANTIC AVE, CAPE CANAVERAL, FL), we were supposed to be picked up from port Canaveral which is 3 miles away from this office. They have only 1 shuttle, we waited for 2 hours for a pickup. The rental office never pick up the phone .we tried to call the headquarters numbers, even the managers couldn't get hold of them or do anything for us . SO IGNORANT

Over Reserved?The agent, Hash, who served us was awesome. Calm, patient. He apologized for our wait, upgraded us to a nicer vehicle & said we wouldn’t have to refill car.Between Thrifty & Dollar, they accepted more reservations than they had vehicles for. We stood in line for nearly an hour before we were waited on.

Horrible customer service and long waitingI made a reservation to pick up 10 am lined for at 9:30 am and finally got the car at 12:30 pm. No enough cars staff are not friendly at all except shuttle drivers.Do not take reservation more that what you have in the stock

The office was closed and afterhours drop off instructions were confusing, complicated, and bizarre. The only available parking spot when we arrived was handicapped, which I parked in anyway, and by the time we left two more cars had pulled in with no place to park. Felt uncomfortable dropping the car keys into a mail chute but that was the instruction. It was all just weird.
7.2 Good19 Jan 2017
Not enough staff.The Port Canaveral office is VERY busy on a cruise morning. We spent about 15 minutes waiting to turn in the car and another 30 minutes standing waiting for the shuttle to the ship. Needs some more staff.

Drop off location very confusingI ordered the car with different drop off location than pick up location, the guy asked me to go to the airport service counter to get receipt, after he checked everything was fine, I waited forever there, there was only one person there, I never expected dropping off car will take that much hassle

A bit of a wait, but good car.The car ran really well, and was a slight upgrade.The line at the Port was pretty long to pick up the car. Also, the car had no USB charging port. The car also wasn’t completely cleaned; the cup area had junk from the last user.

I wish they would've told us how many tolls we'd have to pay on the major highways in Orlando. At one point we went through a toll that only took coins. We were unable to pay the exact toll which was stressful. Also there are no accessible gas stations near the Orlando Airport. Wish they would've offered for us to pay our gas up front to save us the hassle of finding a nearby gas station which required us to pay tolls twice just to get there.

Dropped off the car and was immediately taken to the port for our ship. He was VERY HELPFUL. I'm sorry I did not get his name but he seemed to be the only on there. Besides checking us in, he drove the shuttle to the port.Nothing!!!

Slow pickup at Port CanaveralCar was clean. Once we got to the Cape Canaveral office things went well.We waited for about an hour for a pickup at Port Canaveral. We watched as every other passenger that had disembarked the ship with us got picked up by multiple trips of all of the other rental car vendors' shuttle buses. Then it was just us Thrifty folks waiting in line and wondering if they would ever come. Repeated phone calls to the Thrifty office in Cape Canaveral went unanswered. Eventually we were picked up. But I will certainly never rent from Thrifty again at this location.

ConfusionVehicle gas mileageCar had an oily film which made it difficult to see out the windows without repeatedly cleaning and vehicle had been smoked in a lot. The smell of smoke irritated us both. We even tried spraying the car with a powerful hospital deodorizer, but were never able to eliminate the smoke odor.

Ease of drop off (as long as you don't want a receipt or need to talk to someone).The gentleman at the desk was rude and unhelpful. It was crowded and he did not deal well with the customers. Very unorganized.
