Car was good but wait time at rental counter (30 minutes) and then in the pickup lot (another 30) was extensive. Seemed understaffed and low on stock. Had to take a minivan to prevent an even longer wait.Reviewed 4 Feb 2024

When I booked, there were gas vehicles available for the same price but was given an electric vehicle with no instructions on how or where to charge it. I upgraded to a gas vehicle and it ended up costing me more when they were available for the same price in the beginning. The car I ended up receiving worked but felt like the clutch was slipping and wouldn't engage properly.Reviewed 17 Jan 2024

Cons:There was a more than 45 minute wait at the counter when we went to pick it up. We cancelled the reservation at that point and found a car at another agency instead so we don't know how long it would have beenReviewed 31 May 2021

Cons:The line for pick up was 3x longer than any other line in the miami airport, thrifty center was shutdown sonhad to stand in line for the dollar rental. Back windows of our car did not roll up all the way when putting the top up so had to manually pull them back into place. Will choose another rental company if visiting miami again.Reviewed 24 May 2021
