pick up and drop off was very difficult very hard to find where we were supposed to go and staff was not helpful and could not be bothered to say two words to us. we also had a tail light go out halfway through our trip which did not make us feel very safe that the vehicle was checked over before we left.

The car itself.The fees and taxes portion of the original contract I paid for when I picked up the vehicle. Upon return of the vehicle I had to pay the same fees and taxes again. Also, how dare that you charge 15.00 for each toll on top of the state toll charges and the 15. each toll was alot more than each toll. I will never use thrifty again and will post negative reviews each and every place i can on a daily basis.

Price was good and it was a nice little Toyota YarisAdvertises that pickup is on Airport. What they don't tell you is that its a long hike to get to the counter then another hike into a parking garage and then up to the 5th floor to get your car. The return was painful as well in that I had a 0530 departure and when I arrived at 0430 there was nobody in the return area or at the counter and it wasn't really apparent what you were supposed to do with the keys etc. Finally found a drop box in the return area and left everything in it. Upside was front desk was very nice when they were there, quick and polite.

If I'm renting a car and my husband is with me I don't think I should have to pay extra for him to drive. I will not use you again.on vacation 7 days I had to drive every day not happy.

Up-selling to pre-reserved customers is a terrible marketing decisionVehicle was very clean.I reserved a car in advance. The aggressive up-selling at the rental counter was irritating and a waste of precious customer face time. Those 10 seconds of offensive up-selling should be eliminated completely or spent enhancing the customer’s perception of value and service. Profitable business agreements require mutual respect. I hope the folks at Thrifty re-visit this procedure.

Staff was excellent across the board. Car was clean and got excellent gas mileage.I understand that your prices are likely determined by supply, but the cost of this rental was more than 6x than any rental I've ever paid. Ever. I traveled for work in rental cars for over 10 years. I used the "manager's choice" option, thinking that with what I was paying that maybe I might have been offered something nice. I was not. In fact, I was offered a full-size for an extra $10 per day. Considering how much I was already paying, I wasn't interested in paying one cent more. The vehicle wasn't great. The drivetrain was loud and struggled. The cabin wasn't designed for the cell phone era; there was no where to rest your phone in a way so you could see it for navigation purposes. Speaking of, the console didn't offer any navigation features. The only way to get nav on the display was to physically connect your phone to the one and only USB port. I realize the car was made in 2018, but that wasn't long ago. Reconsider vehicles like this in your fleet.
2.0 Mediocre7 Apr 2021
The “manager’s special” turned out to be a pick up truck. I then had to pay an extra $10 per day for a medium size car. This car was the worst car I have ever rented. Dirty inside (including cigarette burn on driver’s seat), covered in scratches and dings, and then found it vibrated at over 60 mph and the clutch slipped. The car had nearly 40k miles and should not have been in service.

The agent who assisted me in Warwick was helpful.The signage to locate the building/office was awful. No one was available to report a small scratch on the passenger door when I picked up the vehicle. I took a photo of the scratch. Also, signage for drop off was not good. Just a box to turn the key. No agent present to whom I could report the scratch. Otherwise I was satisfied with the rental situation.

When I call 2 days for my reservation, I ask !! Can I pay whit my DEBIT card ? The answer was yes.!! But when I arrive to pick up, they rejected me .. because of that .... I lose my day and time and almost lose my trip to my destination.... don’t like this polices ...

Price could have been better. The drop-off was in a dimly lit parking garage to just 1 person who handled returns for at least 3 different rental car companies. I would have NEVER allowed my wife to return a rental under those conditions.

PVD has really screwed up the where and how you pick up rental cars, and the return placement is far from ideal. On the other hand the young lady whom I dealt with at the counter was OUTSTANDING. She was rocking two keyboards at one and making things happen. There are people who strive for absolute EXCELLENCE in what they do, and she is one of them!

Rental car pickup at PVD is offsite, and neither Kayak nor Google tell you that. Also, the Payless pickup area was not staffed, so someone from Hertz helped me. Once I had the car, it was great. The little Kia was super-clean and comfortable.

Got to pick which car I wanted.Employee tried to upsell me with a better car for onlyv$19 more. Car rental return place should be specified by national - not their fault, but it was nearly impossible to find. Luckily there was a gas station open at 2 AM that I could ask where to return a rental car too. It was not at all clearly marked at the airport.

I arrived to pick up the car with enough room on my credit card to pay for it and then I was informed I needed to have an additional $200 available on the card in order to get the car. This was never disclosed to me. Luckily I was able to fix it on the spot otherwise the trip would have been ruined before it even started. Additionally after I got the rental documents I was informed there was no customer parking so I had to leave without the rental car go find a place to park my car and walk back to the facility to pick up the rental. After finally getting to the car the exterior was dirty but more concerning the interior clearly had not been wiped down at all. In this day in age of covid-19 that practice is unacceptable and irresponsible. I had to drive to my house before going where I needed to go so I could sanitize all the touch surfaces inside the car. Between having to walk back to the facility after finding parking and having to stop and clean the car I was behind on my schedule. The car itself performed as you would expect for a new vehicle with only 25,000 miles on it. The person behind the counter was polite and performed her job as you would expect.

The staff at the pick up in Rhode Island was excellent. During COVID seeing/interacting with others can be stressful and the space was exceptionally clean, and I feel like they are handing the pandemic with ease. I will not hesitate to do this rental again a few times while I am not flying.The car itself had previously had a smoker in it. Not much anyone can do about that, it clearly had been cleaned and aired out, but I could still smell it. Is renting a smoke free car an option?
9.6 Excellent13 May 2019
Car was clean and drove well. Great gas mileage on vehicle. Staff was helpful and pick up and drop off were fast.If the staff didn't try to keep up-selling us on bigger or more expensive cars and features. Probably a required part of their job, but we just wanted to pick up the car we reserved and go. Staff was very friendly though.

The clerk at the counter in the airport could not have been more helpful in comparison to the clerk at the priority booth in the parking garage who could not have been any less helpful and had no interest in our referral to the advertised vehicle we had reserved. The second employee went out of her way to verify the details of a minivan we needed to rent to move some items. She was terrific.

Top tips for renting a car at Providence-TFGreen Airport

  • The process for car rental at Providence-T.F. Green International Airport (PVD) after you arrive on your flight is quite easy. After you've claimed your luggage in the baggage claim area you will simply take the escalator along with the moving sidewalk to the Interlink Facility. Once there, you will find customer service counters for all of the rental car companies that operate at the airport as well as all the cars available for rent.
  • There are plenty of transportation options to get you from the airport to the center of Providence, including local bus and train service. While this can be convenient if you are traveling alone or with very little luggage if you are with a large group or have quite a bit of luggage this can be a cumbersome journey. You can also take a taxi to the center of town, but this can become a pricey endeavor, especially if you needed to make multiple taxi trips while you were here. That is what makes car rental at Providence-T.F. Green International Airport such a great combination of convenience and low cost.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at Providence-T.F. Green International Airport, you will bring it back to the same Interlink Facility where you rented the car. As you approach the airport, look for signs pointing to Post Road and from there you will see ample signage directing you to the car rental return area. When you arrive in the appropriate area for your rental company, lock the car and put the contract and the keys in the provided dropbox for a contactless return.
  • The airport has two time periods that they consider their peak times for travel. These are between the morning hours of 6 am and 8 am and the afternoon hours of 4 pm and 6 pm. During these times you may find extended wait times for Providence-T.F. Green International Airport car rental. That is why it is a great idea to make a reservation in advance to make sure your car is held for you during busy times like these.
  • Book your rental car at Providence-TFGreen Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
