Check in was easy and car was ready to go. Early return could have been better: a guy in the office screaming out instructions. Car was upgrade and in very good conditionReviewed 13 Jun 2024

The off-airport was very difficult to find. It was tucked into a jumble of streets with no signage leading to it.Reviewed 12 Jun 2024

Horrible after my reservation was confirmed I arrived for the pick up of the vehicle and was told at that moment that they had over rented the vehicle I had gone to pickup. Then they told me they didn’t have any more vehicles and that they were sorry for the inconvenience. Paid $45 for a Lyft and spent 40 min getting there to come out with no vehicle.Reviewed 12 Jun 2024

Vehicle description could have been more accurate. Reservation stated Ford Transit. Vehicle available was smaller passenger van.Reviewed 9 Jun 2024

We could not arrive on time before the agency closing hour. We tried to call the customer service to let them know and that we would come the next Day to pick up the car. The telephone number was not attributed so no chance to get anyone on the Phone. The next Day we showed up to the agency only to find out the car was no longer avalaible and our booking non refundable. Terrible terrible customer experience... We had to book another car and lost around 110 CHF over this crazy stupid process.Reviewed 9 Jun 2024

No chairs in the rental office. You have to stand up while waiting for the only employee to get to you (and it could be a long wait). No modern credit card machine so I had to be in contact with my credit card provider in order to authorize the deal. No way to buy CDW online (I got an email saying the order was confirmed, but was unable to find it using the thrifty website). I rented a car from the exact same location 2 years ago and had the exact same issues. It seems that nothing had changed since. The car itself was excellent, but the headache around the order was a letdown.Reviewed 8 Jun 2024

Reserved a car and went to go pick it up and upon arrival we found out they had closed before actual closing hours. Talked with another person that was there at the same time and they mentioned thrifty had given out all their cars. I shouldn't have been able to reserve a car ahead of time if they're just going to give out all available vehicles.Reviewed 5 Jun 2024

Never got the car, after arriving nobody was in the office and after calling multiple times they didn’t have any reservation made to my name despite having the reservation and itinerary numbers. They shielded behind the excuse of making a deposit to reserve and I was never ask that until that moment, plus no cell service to call customer support to resolve the issue with KAYAK. Someone made a mistake along those lines and I never do it again.Reviewed 4 Jun 2024

Moved us from Thrifty to Alamo. After waiting line for 30 minutes someone tells us if we made a reservation that day or the day before they are booked and we have no reservations. Continued to say for those of you who booked two days ago or prior, you have a 2 hour wait.Reviewed 4 Jun 2024
