Noticed a cat pee (or weed) smell in it, but not bad enough to warrant getting a different vehicle. The gal helping us get the vehicle was very nice and helpful. Price could have been much more reasonable, in our opinion. But it served our purposes for the two days we had it. Thank you.

Rep tried to pressure me into upgrading. I said no then he fessed up that they didn’t have anything in the category I reserved except a Dodge Charger which I do not consider to be a full size car. He refused to give me a complimentary upgrade which was the only way I had to get a car that would suit my needs. I will never rent from them again, in any city.

They denied the reservation at the counter because we did not have airline tickets. When I rented the email confirmation specifically said the airline tickets was not required to rent from this location. They did not try to resolve other than tell me but I had to find another rental car penny. Luckily Enterprise right next to them was able to accommodate. This is the first and last time I use thrifty

I rented a mid-size (Corolla) and was disappointed when I got to the front desk that that equated to a Kia (compact in my opinion). Long story short, for $10/day, they upgraded me to a suv (more room and surprisingly 7 seats!). This worked out very well as I was able to shuttle the volleyball team/parents in and around Spokane. In the end, it worked out great and I'm satisfied. What could have been better? Clearer signs for CAR RENTAL returns coming into the airport. Was "lost" and finally decided to go close to where I rented the car (and not the long term parking area) and that's where I again picked up/saw the Returns line. Very confusing if not from the area!!!

If you live locally, DO NOT rent from Thrifty. They do not advertise this on their webpage, and I didn't find out about this policy until after I had reserved (and paid for) the car, at which point they said there wasn't anything they could do to help me. It was too late to rent another car (I was leaving for a conference at 5am the next morning), and I had to cancel my attendance at the conference and the hotel, and ended up spending an hour on the phone trying to get refunds. I would recommend avoiding renting from Thrifty until they either update their rental policy or include this information on the booking site before someone rents from them.

My suv was very nice. It took care of our needs for traveling. The drop off was excellent. The pickup was not the best. The staff was not friendly and he tried to make us feel like we needed extra insurance. It was a bit of a hassle having to go out and check the vehicle and then wait for the same person to give information to about the vehicle. It would be so much better if someone could be outside looking the car over with you and then going over how to use the vehicle. We could not figure out how to use the cruise control. It was not clear in the manual either; therefore was not able to use it. Did not want to mess anything up. Thank you.

We rented a car, I called local office and confirmed rental.. went to office at the airport to pick it up. They do not rent to anyone local you must have a flight in or out of airport. I was going on vacation my address was local in fact when I got to the counter she is like we can't rent to you your local I can sceen shot where it said that. Kayak or thrifty should have made it clearer on the rental process she explained it happens all the time we were a full day behind on vacation while we scrambled to find a new rental

Friendly and helpful representatives, higher than average costsAlamo representative Debbie at the Spokane airport was very friendly and helpful. She assisted me with changing my reserved vehicle type. The vehicle was wonderful, so comfortable and easy to drive.I changed my requested vehicle type at the counter, which cost an additional $134.00. This was about $50.00 higher than if I had made the reservation that day, and even higher than other rental companies at the airport. Because I would have had a $100.00 fee to cancel my original reservation, I choose just to pay for the higher than average upgrade fee. Taught me a lesson to only reserve no fee cancellation vehicles.

The reservation, pick up and drop off all went without a hitch. Easy and hassle free. The staff was ready for me and made everything easy. Debbie was great to work with!! I showed up earlier than my reservation and they got me in a car early and extended my rental by one day without any issues. Staff was great!! Overall experience was great!! Would defintely rent from Alamo again.I drove a 2017 Dodge Charger with 2000 miles. Overall the car was great, but the USB ports would work off and on. This was frustrating and was hard when I needed to charge my phone. Also the main screen froze once and I had to pull over and turn the car off and back on. When it froze I was unable to control the volume, A/C etc. This must be a glitch that Dodge needs to address.

Due to Covid, I wasn’t able to travel with my wife and kids on the trip. Budget/Priceline was very unhelpful and un-accommodating. They wouldn’t honor the reservation without me being present despite my wife having same unique last name and confirm email/#. We tried adding her to reservation thru Priceline help number after she sat in line initially and was denied. After standing in line again, she found their systems didn’t register the change. Ultimately made new reservation with Avis and wife stood in line again to finally get the car.

Pickup at Spokane Airport was not a pleasant experience. It took over an hour in line to get served. I asked if this was normal and the agent said every day was like this. That is totally unacceptable. They really need to have more agents and better trained agents that can process customers more quickly.

Once I received the car things were okay. The problem was the lady at the Spokane Airport's counter. There was a dramatic price change (in my favor) on my rental due to changes in the rental. When I asked her to help me with getting the reimbursement she told me that she would not make the phone call to to help me get this taken care of.

Booked online with kayak. Never mentioned additional charges for anything over 200 miles but the receipt had we ended up renting would have cost another .30/mile for anything we drove over 200 miles per day. Went to the Hertz counter at the airport to pick up the car and they said they had no cars available to rent. Terrible customer service assistance and terrible management of information. Sales counter was anything but helpful upon arrival and wasn’t interested in looking for other options to assist.

The final bill total ended up being far more than the quoted price. There were several extra charges that weren’t originally discussed or included on the estimate. I didn’t deviate from the trip that I told them I was taking, nor did I return the vehicle with a low fuel tank. It’s not a nice surprise to be charged closer to $500 when the original quote was $354.

Do not rent from this location and possibly not from this company. They will “find” a minute half inch hairline scratch under a bumper (pretty sure they put it there themselves) and try to scam you for thousands to repair it. Wonder how many renters have paid for the same invisible and out of sight scratch. As another car rental agency said, “that’s ridiculous. If we had our cars our for repairs for small scratches we wouldn’t have any to rent out.” Super scammers. Be careful. Go elsewhere.

The wait at the Spokane airport was ridiculous, almost 45 minutes. I had completed EVERYTHING on line, but it seems no one else had.

Top tips for renting a car at Spokane Airport

  • If your flight arrives at Spokane International Airport (GEG), you don't have to wait until the last minute to look for a car to take you around Spokane County. Instead, combine your flight booking with a car rental. At KAYAK, we make your booking process easier by providing the most popular agencies so you can compare prices and other deals. With a car rental at Spokane Airport, you can escape directly to Spokane downtown in about 10min, which is twice as fast as using a bus (20min).
  • There is a diverse selection of providers at the Spokane Airport car rental area. Find rental desks at the northern end of the terminal. When you follow the signs for arrivals, you'll trace the car rental counters. Head to the Ground Transportation Center adjacent to concourses A and B at the baggage claim areas. Sign some paperwork, get the keys, and drive away immediately. When on a tight schedule, arrange with the rental company to speed up your experience. Even better, rental cars are parked outside the terminal for ease of access.
  • No matter how busy your travel itinerary is, you can count on car rental at Spokane Airport since the return area at the terminal is always open. When done, record the fuel level and mileage and drop the paperwork at the return box. The return area is near the baggage claim section. If you come back after-hours, take your items, lock the car, and place the keys and other documents in the drop box.
  • Renters have a variety of ways to pay for fuel. If you prefer prepayments, pay for a full tank, and you're free to bring back the car with an empty tank. You can also pay for the used fuel upon return. The cost per gallon is calculated at the provider's discretion. When in doubt, take a vehicle and bring it back with the same fuel level as you found it.
  • Book your rental car at Spokane Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
