The excellent and efficient service.
Had no cause for complaint what so ever.
March 16, 2017
getting the upgrade as the chosen car was not ready.
Paying the extra for the roadside assistance and petrol not needed to be refilled.
SaifulMarch 15, 2017
The fact that I got an upgrade to a SUV was excellent. The cars avaialable are generally new and in good condition.
Having to wait for a shuttle service to get to the rental office was a pain especially when you are with several luggages and 2 small kids.

One comment: I have both a US and non-US driver's license. Yet, the Thrifty staff said that in order to be eligible for the promotion price from Rentalcars.com, I needed to show my foreign license (not US license) in order to receive the promotion. The reason, I believe, for this is because I booked the car rental while outside the US.

ease of booking
Didn't get the car I wanted
March 8, 2017
The car was in perfect shape.
It's a little uncomfortable for non-native speakers of English to have to go through the pick-up process by phone with an off-the-site agent. Also staff at drop-off was quite unfriendly.
March 3, 2017
Agent at return place was very helpful and respectful.
Rental desk agent was pushing a lot of additional service/products that I do not want. It was quite annoying.

Everything went just fine, there was no pressure to get extra insurance

Shuttle bus....need to have more buses running. Unreasonable time spent waiting to be picked and to be taken back to the airport.
FLORINFebruary 2, 2017
Everything went pretty well.
Had to wait around 30 min to get the car. Maybe not enough staff to operate more counters!?
January 26, 2017
Car Make is not what I expected.

Cleanliness, no washer fluid, rubbish under the seats
January 11, 2017
Quick, efficient, courteous service. Your employees are excellent. If only your computer system were the same!
1) Computer broke down picking up the car - delay 2) long wait for the bus back to the airport - delay
January 7, 2017
We could select the middle size cars from the pool.
The us did not show up at the airport and we had to wait for a while.
January 4, 2017
Airport bus was infrequent compared to other companies
WilliamDecember 27, 2016
Although car pick up was off airport, it did not take long at the Thrifty counter to pick up the car. It will be much better if there were shutters available from airport to the Thrifty office for pick up. Car return was a breeze. Thanks
December 25, 2016
Extended opening hours, and courtesy bus at LAX
Hard to find gas within 10 miles of San Francisco, and fill up charge unreasonable.

We came from Australia and one of the things we wanted to do was drive an American car we originally booked the chèvrolet Impala and ended up with a Hyundai a little disappointed with this

Helpful and friendly staff at pickup In and out again of the depot in no time Choice of car in class/group i.e. We were able to walk down the line and pick the one we wanted, jump in and drive straight to security to check-out
October 17, 2016
Car was great.
Not enough staff to pick car up. The buses were too infrequent. I saw 3 AVIS buses in the time for Thrifty bus to come around LAX.
October 14, 2016
I had to chose between two economy cars that were listed as "compact" and according to the clerk they had to be considered equivalent to the Ford Focus I booked. I was not allowed to wait for further choices.
October 13, 2016
Very helpful staff. Helped me with everything including directions.
Car was getting a bit old.
October 11, 2016
Car in good overall condition; Very quick and easy car drop-off; No need to wait for a shuttle bus after car drop off - it was already waiting for us;
Not so quick car pick-up; Did not get the car I made the reservation for; Most of compact class cars were small and I had to choose the one, that could fit 2 luggage casess;
October 10, 2016
dirty windscreen at start
October 9, 2016
We received an upgraded car which was very clean and was ideal. Drop off was quick and shuttle was only 5 minutes.
Pick up from the terminal was slow - we saw a number of other shuttles while we waited. We were asked if we wanted to pay for an upgrade although it transpired the car we had ordered was not available and we had an upgrade anyway.
October 5, 2016
I like the process of returning the rented car. Fast and efficient.
The receptionist attempted to sell additional insurance policies and other items during the registration process.
October 4, 2016
Desk guys were good at thrifty
StephenOctober 4, 2016
All the staff were friendly and professional and the Kia Sedona was in excellent condition. We fit 6 people and 6 suitcases inside!
