The guy in the office said pick any car in rows S1 and S2 and we had the choice of 20 to 30 vehicles that was tough but we made it. Fantastic... Nothing to dislike.

Fast Collection and Drop-off Service I was kind of railroaded into taking an expensive E-pass for tolls that cost way way more than paying manually at tolls. Finding the return centre at Newark was problematic. The sat nav is a phone with a very poor battery life.

Great mini-van. Was given choice of vans parked near each other. Good efficient service. When car battery died (see didn't like section), called hotline and service was prompt and car was started up again and was reliable from that point on. Car battery died day after pick-up. Luckily we discovered problem early in day and called hotline. Service was prompt and it didn't delay plans significantly for that day. Could have been a problem if I had started the car right when I needed to get to my timely appointment.

After one week, the rental car failed to start and I had to wait approximately 4 hours for a tow. I was dropped off at Reagan Airport to pick up a replacement which was not as nice as the original.

I would use Rentalcars.com again b/c I believe the deal I received was better than I could get directly from Thrifty. As this was my first time to use Rentalcars.com, I wondered if I would have issues at pickup but the process was easy.

The car was a Hyundai Sonata which was exactly he size we needed for four adults plus their baggage. It was easy to drive and park, and performed perfectly. Poor signage at Dulles arrivals terminal, which made it difficult to find how to reach Thrifty when we arrived tired and jet-lagged

I liked that after a last minute change of plan that meant changing flights and my departure airport it was absolutely no problem at all to drop the car off at Ronald Reagan Airport instead of Dulles where we'd picked the car up and a very friendly member of staff dropped us off with all our luggage in the same car right at the departures! :)

Jeffrey Washington DC Dulles Airport 12 April 2017
The drop off was easy and I got the car I paid for It took over 15 minutes to get the car and the gentleman kept trying to upsell me on another car and additional add-ons. I was happy to pay for insurance but it isn't reasonable to pay for road side assistance. A flat tire is the drivers responsibility but if the car breaks down I expect Thrify to cover that not me.

Shuttle service at Dulles and LAX worked well and locations were easy to find. The Chevrolet Camaro performed faultlessly for the 3800 miles we drove across the US, sometimes in extremely hot conditions. Great trip ! Only a few minor points which could be improved. The car wasn't very clean when we picked it up. The staff on the desk tried to sell us all sorts of unnecessary extras. The GPS provided wasn't up to date with the latest roads in some areas.
