Paying upfront saved me surcharges on my credit card. Also, inclusion of rentalcover was a good option to save on insurance as rental agency charges a bomb for full insurance cover!

Friendly, helpful staff. Gave us directions to our destination. Difficulty in finding terminal 2/3 from the highway. The directions at terminal 1 were confusing. This is not a complaint about Thrifty but the airport authorities. The lady at terminal 1 was extremely helpful in redirecting us to terminal 4.
