The ease of getting from the airport to the rental car building. The efficient counter staff member. Having the GPS was a God send. Nothing to comment about here.

There were not proper signs for returning the car back to the Car rental center.Needs to have larger well placed Thrifty signs for returns.
Margaret Houston Airport 20 August 2017
Very easy to deal with customer service The drop off location at Dallas Fort Worth Airport was extremely hard to find - it was not signed well at all. Needs a lot of improvement. Once we did find it dropping off wend smoothly though.

My son forgot his iphone and we are very glad that we recovered it. We had trouble communicating with threfty at the moment since we had to call to 5 different phone numbers. But glad of honesty of your employers!

Speed of service, car condition, team greeting Not clear car type and group on the app. Didn't get the car model I selected.
Anonymous Houston Airport 27 July 2017
Easy return (after we found the adddress ourselves) It was confusing trying to find them in the airport (poor signage and hidden in a corner). No return address on the paperwork provided, had to search on the internet. The car wasn't what we asked or paid for (was slightly smaller)

The person who helped me give me an upgrade but it was a little bit expensive that I expected. The car has trash below the seats.
Anonymous Houston Hobby Airport 13 February 2017
Given toll roads are all over Houston, a toll pass should be automatically placed on the car rather than it being up to the customer.
Anonymous Houston Airport 09 November 2016
Good value for money with deal for free tank of gas and three free drivers. Girl at the car return was very friendly. Took to long to pick up: first car did not have a key, no one knew where it was, there was no car without GPS and with lugage cover available. We had to settle for a car without cover. Car was quite damaged on the outside.
John Houston Airport 04 November 2016

Fast drop off. Not all the cars are in good condition. For instance the tyre wall of a car I saw had a big blister. The sales agent also tried to sell me a number of additional insurances, whereas I told the thrifty agent that our package already included CDW.
Terence Houston Airport 15 May 2014
I had an unfortunate accident in my vehicle downtown San Antonio which was not my fault. I returned the car to Thrifty at San Antonio airport who were very helpful, they changed the car immediately and got me on my way.

everything apart from the officious tone initially, which was soon dropped and the arrangements agreed in a most cordial fashion

Return location not good indicated. Basic return signs lead to HERTZ; only on upwards ramp is the first Thrifty sign
Anonymous Houston Airport 19 March 2014
Good & friendly service that is not trying too hard to sell you all sort of add-ons. Remember that when one for example has travelled almost 24 hoers one is tiered and basically just wants peace. A small detail I would prefer that you use an ordinary key with remote lock/unlock I use these modern keys that you can just keep in your pocket on my private car, but when one is traveling and for example receive the car in the middle of the night (my body time) it is easy to be confused. Then it is better to have an ordinary key so you for example know that the engine actually has been turned off when you take out the key. Next time I will try to avoid such a modern key (if I remember)
