Pros:Waiting for 3 hours in line at Philly airport to pick up car. Only two people working the desk. Only two people bringing cars out. Had to take a car I did not reserve. It was bigger than I wanted. Asked for a smaller car and was told this was all they had to offer. Spoke to Thrifty many times on the phone -- call center in India. They were absolutely no help. Will never rent from Thrifty or Hertz again.Cons:Everything.Reviewed 25 Jun 2021

Pros:It was a standard rental, so most of the experience is “as expected.” However, in the past my bookings have included all taxes and city fees in the upfront rental quote. But here, there’d was another $50 added that was not identified in the quote. Very disappointed in that.Cons:I will never choose another car when the booking source is Priceline. I will Avoid Philadelphia rentals, if the surprise taxes were specific to the city.Reviewed 13 Jun 2021

Cons:Those spikes in the driveway of the return entrance are terrifying. I slammed on the brakes because I wasn't sure if I should pass through. It would be nice if they did something about that.Reviewed 8 Jun 2021

Pros:Staff was working hard and were polite and helpful, but they were stressed out because of the long line and lack of staff for check out. Drop off was easy.Cons:When my shuttle pulled up, there were 30 people in line outside the building and more inside, I waited outside, in the sun on an 85+ degree afternoon. My plans for the first day of my trip were ruined. You knew how many people rented cars that day, why were you not staffed properly? I will never utilize Thrifty/Dollar again at the Philadelphia airport. 100% unacceptable!Reviewed 7 Jun 2021

Pros:Drop off at Newark was easy.Cons:Philadelphia airport had only one clerk who was not pleasant and there was only one line. Took over half an hour to check in. The ++$$ for the tolls is outrageous. We should be charged for what we use.Reviewed 7 Jun 2021

Cons:1. The check in /pick-up was very slow even though we had a reservation. 2. The dollar amount of the taxes in PHL was ridiculously high. Shouldn't this be included in our priceline price so we'll know how much we are paying?Reviewed 19 May 2021

Pros:Nothing to like about waiting in line for 1 1/2 hrs to pick up car then finding the drop off point is closed with no signage on where to go. Almost missed the flight!!Cons:Obviously a better pick up and drop off experience for the $600 spent!Reviewed 18 May 2021
