Dual Driver PolicyPros:We received an upgrade on our rental car, due, I think, to the fact that the requested car was unavailable.Cons:My wife and I rented an automobile from your company, to be picked up and returned to the Savannah/Hilton Head Airport. When checking in, I learned that it would cost us an extra $11 per day to have two drivers authorized.I am told this is an industry standard policy. I am a good driver with an excellent driving record, and my wife is an even better driver than I am. I settled for just myself as the designated driver, but this was upsetting to my wife, and inconvenient. This will be a factor in determining if I will rent for your company in the future.Reviewed 7 Apr 2016

Pros:Person who helped us with car was great. Car was adequate.Cons:There were scratches on the car that we had to go back into the terminal about that should have been noted prior. It was over 90 degrees. When we returned we had to go drop off the keys in the terminal, and we had to wait in line.Reviewed 7 Jul 2020

Not a good experiencePros:I like at the rental counter was in the airport terminal. The woman at the counter was very apologetic and very niceCons:We had to wait a while to get a car despite our reservation. we finally did get the car, the interior was riddled with trash. The exterior was muddy, the windshield was dirty. Person at the lot who we asked about cleaning the car said she isn't usually in this department she's usually on the counter and she apologized. They gave me a discount, but I had to drive to meetings in a filthy car. It made a poor professional impression. And not being familiar with the city I didn't know where to get a car wash and wound up trying to cleaning the windshield myself at a gas station. I have no desire to repeat this experienceReviewed 21 Jun 2017

Worst experience everPros:The car ranCons:Car reserved wasn't available. Agent lied about the car (it's like a smart car). Bullied us into an upgrade and then double upgraded when a smaller vehicle was available. Manager was worthless, rude, and lied. Returned three weeks later (about 500 miles) only to have to drive back to gas station an put .49 gallons in. Manager threatened to charge a complete fill up at $8 a gallon because I didn't have my gas receipt. Asked where I filled up at and she said it was 45 miles away. Google Maps had it at 17. Shoving some paperwork in my face and said she has been doing this for years and basically called me a liar (24 yr combat veteran). Never again Thrifty Car Rental. I will just book direct with Avis.Reviewed 26 Mar 2016

Would never book with this one again...ever!Pros:NothingCons:Unavailability of car that I reserved. Incorrect information provided at check-in. Booked a full size, but was only offered a mid-size (which they said was full size) for same rate. Had to pay substantial upgrade for full size. Took 2 1/2 hours to complete our check-in. Gas on contract was listed as 7/8 tank, but realized after leaving that it was just above 1/2 tank. Car smelled like cigarette smoke, but they told it was their cleaning agent we were smelling. Have tried for several days to get a return phone call from local Savannah GA branch to get address my complaint...but can't seem to get that done. Overall, a horrible experience. Would never book with Thrifty at Savannah airport again after this experience.Reviewed 14 Jun 2018

Cons:The chance of dropping the car off in Miami rather than at the same office as the pick up. An explanation about the difference in between the pre paid fuel tank option and the self filling. I shouldn’t paid for the pre paid as I wouldn’t do that amount of miles in just two days.Reviewed 8 Oct 2020

Terrible customer service and business practices at Savannah deskCons:The reception desk at Savannah airport tried to give me a pickup truck as part of the "dealer's choice" rate, not a normal sized car. I had no idea they could insist on such a dangerous transaction--requiring a customer to take a vehicle that actually requires fairly specialized practice and skill to drive and park. Not everyone is comfortable with or able to drive and park such vehicles. I certainly am not. I kept requesting that they give me something else. The woman at the desk didn't warn me about assigning me a truck. I found out on my own when walking into the parking lot. Terrible, sneaky practice. It took making a big scene at the desk before a manager intervened and assigned me a more appropriate car. So, contrary to the first desk attendent's insistence that they had no other available cars, apparently they did. Thrifty is terrible, engages in underhanded practices and makes vacation plans uncomfortable. Never again.Reviewed 3 Sep 2017

Misleading 'or similar' optionsPros:quick execution of paperwork and transaction, but please read complaints.Cons:I'm in Georgia on a golf trip and will be using the rental for 4 guys plus our golf bags. When I looked at the vehicle options online, I chose the midsize SUV because the Santa Fe was listed as being able to hold 4 ppl & 5 bags. When I arrived, the only midsize SUV available was a Jeep Cherokee. I understand the premise of the 'or similar' designation on all rental sites, but to me, the similar options should be identical in space and cargo room. Not just in the way they are described by a manufacturer. The Hyundai would fit all 4 bags no problem from previous experience, my father owns one. Because our bags would not fit in the Cherokee I'm paying for an upgrade to a Dodge Ram pickup, increasing my reservation cost from $318 to $515. I don't know if there is anything you can do to help my particular case, but I'm feeling a little put off by this experience. The employees at the desk did what they could to find me another option but the problem lies within the options you are providing on the site. It's misleading.Reviewed 25 Oct 2015

Pros:We arrived very late and the employee was fast and friendly and gave us a great car for the week.Cons:Really one of the best car rental experiences we've ever had. It was slightly confusing upon returning the car as there was not the typical employee out in the lot to check the car back in so we just went in and dropped off the keys at the counter.Reviewed 5 Apr 2021
