Cons:

I have forgotten my notebook in the rental car. Within1 hour of return I went back to rental location and car was rented back. The lady at the counter noted down car, descritipn and my phone number. It has been more than 10 days no one called back. I tried to call back but no response. There is no lost/found mechanism. Even though there is no monetary value to anyone of my notebook; it was important to me. Rental car company needs to have better mechanism

After we got on the road I realized that the tires were extremely worn. We were hydroplaning on the rainy freeway and it was quite scary. The car smelled like cigarettes and there was trash from the previous user in the center console.

Cons:

The screens inside the car were smudged and not wiped off well. The person who helped us with our rental tried to pressure us into an upgrade and also into buying the insurance even though we were covered already through our own insurance, and we also already declined it when making the online reservation. He was very pushy.

Pros:

The car was pleasant

Cons:

Listening to your customers when they multiple times decline a particular coverage and make you feel uncomfortable by persisting. I understand it’s their job but I declined it 3 times and he kept saying “in case you get into an accident” is that implying something cause I’m female? Don’t understand why I was made to fee pressured. His name is Luke

Got the wrong car. 5 passenger as opposed to 7. Didn't notice until late. Going back for exchange costed me valuable time. I was soooooooo unhappy. The clerk was unapologetic, actually, rude.

Booking sent me to Priceline. Priceline booked me a car pick up time that was precisely when that office closed. No one was at the pickup location when I got there at 2pm. No one to call at Priceline and when I bussed out to the airport location of Hertz 45 min later they told me they couldn’t honor that price. They told me I’d need to rent another/ more expensive car and to contact Priceline to get my money back. Priceline is impossible to get a hold of and their text bot told me to call Hertz which also doesn’t answer the phone. Terrible experience.

Pros:

The staff was terrific - due to Covid they are stuck in a booth on the 6th floor of the garage. Given the terrible working conditions, they were incredibly nice. We had prepaid for the car and it was ready. The check-in process took no time at all and we were off on our holiday. Same experience for the rental return. After a horrendous experience with Alamo on our previous vacation, Hertz was a welcome experience!

Cons:

Wanted a car a Seattle/Tacoma airport ended up with one 45 minutes north in downtown Seattle. After a fligh had to take an Uber to get my rental car. No way to cancel or change rental reservation as Kayak subcontracted my rental to a third party.

They made money off my error. I missed the pickup and drop off location in Seattle on third. And thought it was at SEATAC rental car facility. I immediately tried to call and change it. But I had to pay for 3 days rental. I cannot recommend them or KAYAK.

Not the car I reserved. Not clean with 3 used water bottles, dirty cup holders and a miscellaneous chalky type ball that was left in the car. There is no one at the entrance to take the return. Upon entering the pick up area to inform them that no one was at the return, they told me to go back to the return where there was someone cooking his drugs on his tin foil and subsequently shooting up in broad daylight at the entrance to the returns.

Cons:

We rented a minivan but when we got there, they only had SUV’s. They offered us a large SUV which worked out. The car had not been cleaned on the inside and there were dried food splashes all over the middle bucket seat. We also received varying answer regarding early return of the car. On the other hand, it was more economical than a lot of other rental companies.

Pros:

Staff was friendly with pick up, but they informed me the car I had ordered was unavailable and so was given an alternative which was smaller, which made travelling difficult.

Pros:

Staff was friendly, and got a great rate by not renting from the airport. Drop off was easy.

Cons:

The pickup/drop off location left something to be desired. 6th floor of a dark, old, parking garage that wasn’t especially well-lit. The main entrance was closed due to COVID and we had to use the back door to the elevator lobby. I could see someone, such as a young female alone, feeling quite uneasy about the location.

Pros:

The car was nice and a good deal concerning the other prices by other rental companies. The associate the checked us in was very accommodating.

Cons:

When I originally booked through kayak I entered sea tac airport as my pick up and drop off location. I never confirmed and looked up the address of the Thrifty location because I assumed it would be at the airport that I entered. I got on the shuttle to the car rental terminal where I had to wait in line for an hour because there were so many guests arriving and only two associate working. When it was my turn the associate informed me I went to the wrong thrifty so I had to take the shuttle back to the airport then the train to downtown Seattle where the Thrifty I rented from actually was. I would recommend a much stronger and noticeable alert that the location of this thrifty is not at the airport. I found it says that is small writing randomly in the second email I got. It needs to be more noticeable while booking the car.

Pick up was a nightmare- at least 100 people in line, while only 2 people working the counter. Next door Hertz was almost as bad (Thrifty is apparently owned by Hertz). Waited 1.5 hours in line to get the car I had already reserved and paid for. Will actively avoid Thrifty and Hertz for future rentals.

Our car was given away because we were a day late to pick it up due to a delayed flight and their closure time. We were told the only option was renting a luxury vehicle and paying extra, despite having already paid for our rental in advance for 6 days. It was not until we pointed out this was poor business and spoke with a manager and insisted that we would not be paying for a luxury vehicle we didn’t need, that were given a normal vehicle. We were still charged about $30 more than what kayak stated we’d be charged at pickup. Thrifty said this extra charge was a “hotel fee” for the building in which they were located. We were given no advance notice of this fee.

We paid for a full sized car but got a Nissan Versa which is considered compact or even subcompact. It was a nice car but not what we paid for. The staff was great and no problem getting the car but really disappointed in Thrifty/Hertz for expecting us to not know the difference.
