Efficient. Clean, brand new car. Included a window shade and garbage bag. Didn't mind that it came back with sand and dust from the beach.

Great experience. They upgraded my car and honored the price of the reservation. Excellent rate compared to other car rental companies. Very recommended.

They had no car left and I was charged car insurance from a separate company regardless on my visa! Was with my two daughters stuck at the airport waiting to get in contact with someone from thrifty and when we did we were told it was never confirmed! Be careful when ordering theses things online! Never again will I use Kayak!

Waited half an hour in the airport for pick-up, the car was old (80.000 kilometers), the radio was old and the charge for the mobile phone wasn't working. They didn't have another car for replacement.

Reservation was made through a 3rd party, whereupon additional charges were incurred. The H1 minivan was not at the location at 0900 hrs. Final checkout time was at approximately 1035 hrs. The tollbooth easy-pass system is inadequate, in where I had to proceed through the manual operated gates. The Thrifty Montevideo office was advised by the Colonia office of the problem. Montevideo's office was also sent a message via WhatsApp, which was never answered. Take your time to inspect the vehicle for it had a lot of scratches and dents (don't forget under the bumpers and splash guards, their inspector made a point of checking these upon return). Also the windshield and other windows for my vehicle had damage to the windshield. I filmed the entire inspection.

nothing in particularThere was something wrong between Kayak and Thrifty and when we got there to get our car they did not have any car matching the description and they charged us more to get a better car. And the insurance that we got from your website together with the car rental was NOT accepted!!! Worst experience car rental ever

There wasn't anyone at the to arrange a shuttle or anything. Worst of all, when I manage to make an international call from Uruguay to US from my cell, the company representative was completely useless and offered me to call a local number and deal with it myself ;( Ended up getting a car from Europ

Pick up time was changed by phone but was never relayed to the pick up desk, which made pick up delay in over one hour.Hard to reach by phone. None of the numbers listed was available and did not answer.

Our rental car got towed due to confusion with the language. Dollar sent an employee to the tow lot to assist us. We didn’t have enough local currency and the employee paid for us to get the car back. We then reimbursed him. Dollar really went above and beyond. 5 stars!!

Rental location was closedN/ADespite my showing up at the correct time + place on the reservation, the business was completely closed. Calling Dollar was of no help as there was no one around to open up the business. I ended up having to travel to the airport at my own expense to rent a vehicle. Once there, I did not choose Dollar.

They didn’t honor the fareCar was okThey didn’t honor the fare I had reserved, saying because i didn’t chose any insurance, i had to leave a $3000 deductible, which was insane so I ended up paying an insurance. Very bad experience

I hired a golf or similar. Arriving at the car rental I was warned that they do not work with golf or similar and that the website kayak was responsible for the incorrect information. I was provided a nissan versa, car much cheaper than golf.

Wonderful ExperienceAVIS Montevideo was exceptional. The checkout was fast, courteous, and professional. There was some confusion regarding the location, which wasn't at the port as listed but at another location in Montevideo. They quickly reimbursed my cab from the port to the new location. Secondly, we had an issue with the rental car in Punta del Este and the AVIS location there also had a great customer service. We had a new car and were back on the road within minutes. Overall a great experience.

Fast, efficient service at the counter; nice people; car operated wellThey opened on a Saturday right on time and handled the check-out efficiently, as well as friendly. The return was just as easy. I was briefed on key features of the car as well. The size was perfect.The car operated well, with no problems on all sorts of roads, but could have been more fuel efficient. I missed some of the comfort extras, like better seats and cruise control, which are often offered in this same class of car, but perhaps not in Uruguay.

Don't recommend (At least the car I got)Didn't like much other than the price.Thought I was getting a deal for the CSR and the money, but then they pulled up for me a Renault Logan, and had an Avis sticker on it vs Budget. That said it was as basic a car as I have seen in a long time. The price was cheap given the week and peak demand. But, it was in poor condition, barely made it up hills, had a notchy clutch, no windshield wiper fluid, and the trunk seal came off upon trying to remove my first piece of luggage. Rental was around 360 for 8-9 days which was quite good, as I was not willing to pay 12-1500+ for a few other rentals, but I would gladly have paid 2-300 more for something better....but was told there were no other options. In general, worst car rental and experience I have ever had

nothing!! I did not rent it because my credit card was to new for them!! They also required to hold of $1,600.00 in case of something happened to the card when other companies required just $ 800.00 for better cards. Their office is located outside the airport they give you a ride to take the car but this take extra time. THEY NEED TO UPDATE THEIR SISTEM TO WORK WITH CREDIT CARDS.
