Pros:Nothing.Cons:Your agent would not honor the rental reservation because our flight arrived late. While there were cars available on your website, the agent said she had no cars available. We had to rent a car from Avis. I will never rent from Thrifty again and I will tell everyone I know about the horrible experience I had with your company and your representative.Reviewed 4 Jan 2021

Pros:When I went to get the economy car I thought I had ordered, they said I ordered a "managers selection". And the managers selection was a van or a mustang. The truth is when I ordered the car online - the first thing I had to do was choose the type of car I wanted...I chose the economy car then it was stated that the car rental dealer would choose the economy car available. When I got there they said they chose any car they want for you. It doesn't make sense...why does the website even ask you the type of car you want. You are given a false impression and then when you get to the car rental facility, you have to pay much more for the car you want.Cons:It would be nice if they didn't take advantage of people- sticking them with a car or price tag not ordered.Reviewed 18 Dec 2019

Pros:Staff was outstanding; process was quick. Actual car...could have been sharper and cleanerCons:I am grateful for the service and effort despite this and all rental car companies getting caught during a perfect storm of love inventory and high demand on island during our visit. That said, despite receiving an upgrade (thx!) the vehicle had a cosmetic/service issue with the front spoiler/air dam that forced me to deal with it personally. Not a deal breaker, but an annoyance during our vacation.Reviewed 2 Apr 2021

Cons:Got a Nissan Rogue at a compact car rate, which was OK, but a second driver wasn't included without an additional $13 per day charge, and car was expensive to begin with. Had to go off-airport, or rate would have been even higher. Not convenient.Reviewed 28 May 2021
