Cons: The "agent" at the location could have cared less about any problems or concerns you had. When I mentioned the stains all over the fabric of the car, no reponse, when I asked if they even tried to clean the vehicle, no response. He didn't really know company policy when asked about insurance, tolls or adding a second driver to the vehicle. Also they charged triple the rental amount as a "deposit" which there is no mention of in the rental agreement. When I asked the agent about it, same response, meh

Poor Drop Off
Cons: When we arrived to drop the car, we were able to locate the parking spaces for drop off, however, there was no attendant to turn the car over to. We went inside and found a long line of people at the counter that were renting cars. We needed to catch our flight so we went to another rental car desk (Hertz maybe) that had a shorter line and they were helpful in recording our mileage and taking our keys so that we could leave. The drop off procedure needs to be evaluated with the outbound flight customers in mind.
19 Oct 2015
Pros: Very good experience all the way around
24 Oct 2015
Filthiest car I have ever been in picked up in dar
Cons: Not much
2 Dec 2015
Pros: Car was ready,clean and easy to pick up.
7 Dec 2015
Never using Budget again!
Cons: Budget delayed checking in the car by 24 hours charging us a $10 late fee and then said we didn't fill up the car when our contract said 3/4 and was 2 gallons shy of full but charged us $45 anyways. Sanford airport staff unpleasant and not willing to own up to their error. Will never use Budget again!
18 Jan 2016
Pros: Price was great! What a deal.
Cons: I hope I can get the same deal for the return auto rental.
31 Jan 2016
Pros: free upgrade
Cons: had to wait 50 minutes to get car.
31 Jan 2016
Pros: Brand new vehicle. Clean. Check in was easy - right across from terminal. No shuttle needed. Easy process. Recommend Budget for car rentals at Sanford/Orlando airport.
23 Mar 2016
Will NEVER rent from Budget again
Cons: Even though we had a confirmation number, the man said they always overbook and we would only get a car if other customers who booked before us didn't show. Well, they showed so we didn't get a vehicle!
Pros: Price wasn't bad. Attitude from attendant was uncalled for.
Cons: When picking up. We were late since our flight was delayed. She talked to me like I had committed a crime for being late. Once I denied the insurance since mine covers me, she again gave me an attitude. I inspected the car for damage in an unlit parking lot with the flashlight on my phone. Apparently customer service is not a priority here. After returning the form I sent off with an attitude filled 'good luck' not a thank you.
14 Jan 2016
Pros: The Rep refused to rent the car to me because I didn't have a personal car insurance even when I opted to purchase the company's car insurance and I had rented twice before from same company.
He was just a racist pig.
Kayak was to blame for not having a telephone number to call to report Customer complaints
6 Feb 2016
Poor Customer Service
Pros: The rep was not knowledgeable about online booking
She had an atrocious attitude
28 Feb 2016
Was closed when I arrived
Cons: My flight arrived late, after 11when they closed, every other rental copy was still open waiting for our flight to arrive except for Advantage.there for I had to rent from another company and paid almost double what original reservation was for
6 Mar 2016
Pros: The car was a great car for a good price
Cons: Used the telephone number they had to call to change up the plans and I was on hold for over 30+ mins every time I called plus they needed a 200 dollar deposit . But at over rentals they charge 50
4 Apr 2016
Cons: the care real co was not desirable
5 Apr 2016
Cons: Car was dirty. Someone smoked in it. Still had ashes on drivers floor. Washer fluid was empty which potentially became a dangerous situation.
5 Apr 2016
Worst car rental ever!
Cons: The car I was given was dirty, had a loud muffler and stalled twice!
25 Apr 2016
Pros: The car was plenty big. Lots of leg room and good gas mileage.
Cons: The car was supposed to be a non smoking car, yet there was a cigarette burn hole on the drivers seat and the interior reeked of stale smoke.
25 Apr 2016
Pros: Nothing.The guy at the counter was rude and did not honor the price I paid on priceline while making the reservation.
Cons: The guy at the counter was rude and did not honor the price I paid on priceline while making the reservation.
Cons: Car was in incredibly poor technical condition
30 Oct 2015
Pros: The counter attendant threw on a charge for gas option. This was slied over and not explained nor did we agree to it. We try to notice this company again. They say they will refund the money as a courtesy. There are plenty of places to rent a car, no need for doing business with people that are deliberately deceptive.
4 Mar 2016
Pros: value and vehicle were good
Cons: felt like was nickled and dimed and hustled at the pickup. "you need this add on and that add on " etc. they were very slow getting you checked out and made you feel like a fool if you didn't take something like the gas option.
10 Mar 2016
Pros: Car was clean and very nice to drive. Rental agent was helpful and friendly. I would definitely rent from Thrifty again.
4 Apr 2016
Pros: Good people. Convenient.
4 May 2016
Pros: Ken was amazing! He made the process so painless and was extremely helpful. I have rented a lot of cars from many different companies and he is by far the best employee I have ever worked with. The price was a little expensive but the car was pretty new and nice.
Cons: Both the Thrifty and Dollar counters were combined and so the wait was extremely long.
25 Dec 2016
Cons: We went to return the vehicle early around 0530 am. When we pulled up to the gate the guy had the entry way half blocked with a car and other with a cone, which is fine. He was standing out front of the gate. When we pulled up he did nothing but stare at us. We had to get out and walk up to him for him to help us. Also, he didn't check the car or anything asked us for our paperwork and told us to check the mileage and gas... which I suppose worked out better for us, but I feel like that's his job... I'm sure this guy wasn't having a good day, but the encounter with him made me really mad, and had any other person been there I would have complained then. I'm usually not one to complain. All other people we encountered were helpful.
3 Feb 2017
Pros: Friendly staff, clean car, easy pick up drop off process
Cons: Car had bad tires.
19 Feb 2017
Pros: they agreed to price I paid online
it was easy pick up and drop off
Cons: there were slippers in the car in rear under seat, not thoroughly cleaned out
20 Feb 2017
Pros: Thrifty was really a very good experience. The car was fine and the personnel at Thrifty were very helpful.
Cons: KAYAK messed up the rental. When I went online to rent the vehicle, I put in the Orlando MCO airport as my pickup. I signed up unwittingly for a rental in the Orlando Sanford airport some 30 miles away. Thrifty was willing to switch the rental to the airport I landed in, (MCO) but wanted about twice the price. I had to rent a one way vehicle, for about $100 from MCO to Sanford and waste hours of time to get the car I wanted. The re A bad experience that left me with a thought that I would never use KAYAK again. Worse yet, I could not find a telephone number for KAYAK to straighten up the mess. No thanks KAYAK, you Customer Service from my point of view does not exist to straighten out any problems that come up.
Pros: Price was good, providing there are no surprises yet to come.
Cons: Sold as Sanford Orlando Airport. Pickup was actually well offsite. Had to pay a taxi $25+ for the 5 of us to location. Had to pay $5 extra to drop at airport. No attendants of any kind at drop off. We just left the keys, at the direction of agents at other rental agency counters, who said "Oh, you're ok". Bizarre first rental thru Kayak as well as through Hertz. I doubt I will do either again.
1 Sep 2016
Pros: Staff was very and respectful. Car in very good working order.
Cons: I already did this review and keep getting asked to do it again. Starting to get annoyed now.
8 Sep 2016
Pros: Excellent overall
18 Nov 2016
The staff was very professional and pleasant ..
Pros: I liked the treatment I received and the car I chose
20 Mar 2017
Pros: The day of my rental they called me they had a van or an expedition and wanted to know which I would prefer I picked the expedition and was real glad I did It had room for 8 of us.
21 Nov 2016
Great all but
Pros: Ease of getting the car. Great car. Ease of drop off. After talking to the right person the problems I had were fixed. I had to call the national number then local number but it was taken care of to my satisfaction.
Cons: Being charged for pre-pay gas when I said I didn't want it. IT was connected.
11 Feb 2017
Cons: Apparently there is a new policy where if you use a debit card, you need TWO forms of ID. I don't typically travel with 2 forms.
YOU failed to tell me this in my confiration email. Hertz failed to tell me that when I was on the phone with three different agents. Their on hold message only said debit cards are subject to credit check. I was not able to even get my car.
8 Mar 2017
Pros: Very impressed with the cleanliness of the vehicle...but even more impressed with the gas mileage! For being late at night, the staff was friendly as well.
13 Mar 2017
Cons: I didn't realize there would still be a balance (money) due yet for the vehicle.. You need to make that clearer.
19 Mar 2017
I cancelled the rental and they charged me anyway
Cons: I accidentally made the reservation for Orlando Sanford International instead of Orlando International. At the counter, the Hertz employee was rude, gave me no options or solutions, and said she couldn't help me. I called Hertz in Sanford and they at least told me they would help me cancel my reservation. Unfortunately, I was still charged $50 on my credit card for the rental that I didn't even use. They said it would be a full refund since I never picked up the car. Worst car rental experience I've ever had.
Cons: After check-in, car was not available for 30-40 minutes. Otherwise all else was ok.
22 Feb 2016
Pros: The excellent rental price.
Cons: Fact it was a 12 passenger transit van. ( but, the price was more important to me as I have to make this trip every 4 to 6 weeks).
12 Sep 2016
problem with drop off
Pros: Pickup onsite was very easy, staff were professional and pleasant.
Cons: We arrived very early at the aiport otday ot return our vehicle (Sanford Fl airport) the signage was good to direct us to garage area but signage was very poor in garage. I realize this was very early before 6am so staff may not have been on. I then walked back to the rental car counters to leave my keys and paperwork. No one was at any of the ocutners, I did finally find the drop box but it was on a side wall next ot the offices.
A sign in the drop off area with directions and a sign on the counter as to what to do would have been very helpful.
Thank you Andre Cushing email@example.com
16 Sep 2016
Too long and too hot
Pros: Counter agent pleasant and professional
3 Nov 2016
The car was dangerous with the governor when tryin
Cons: The car was dangerous with the governor when trying to pass. The radio old beep and turn down . Obviously for it were in a state where the speed limit was 55, this would be ok. I could see a future lawsuit from someone who ends up in an accident because of this governor.
12 Nov 2016
Pros: Clean nice car
Cons: Cost, pick up drop off drag everything instead of them bringing the car
14 Jan 2017
Pros: Nice car, pleasant rental agent
Cons: Very dark walk to get car. At end of lot, hard to determine if car had any previous damage to report before taking. Poor lightening to get elderly parents in and situated in car.
19 Jan 2017
Sanford to PCB
Pros: The associate was really nice, fast & efficient! I got off of my plane and into a nice clean car in no time. Thank you!
13 Feb 2017
Pros: Pickup and drop were very smooth.
Cons: When booking online, the additional insurance turned out to be 3rd party. Not obvious when booking, and misleading.
20 Feb 2017
Agent was misleading
Cons: Agent offered for "only $10 more" an upgrade. She didn't bother to mention it was $10/
Day". I was picking the car up with a large group of people and didn't notice my bill was 150% higher than expected.
Pros: Great customer rep. Car was clean. Easy return.
19 Sep 2016
Cons: No one to check car in at MCO. Left after 20 minutes wasted waiting. Received wildly erroneous bill charging $120 more than contract including $100 for fuel service when I had just refueled. Waited online for customer service before line went dead. Not the first time we have had problems with Dollar/Thrifty in Orlando. Avoid, Avoid
17 Oct 2016
Would definitely use again
Pros: We were served quickly and efficiently by friendly staff and there was no pushy upsell on extras with the rental. The car was clean and good to drive with no problems.
6 Oct 2016
Good value, but slow service
Pros: The car (Nissan Juke) was comfortable and easy to drive.
The value of the rental was pretty good.
Cons: When we picked up the car, there were maybe 4 or 5 customers before us and it took nearly an hour to be waited on. There were 2 clerks, but only one was actually waiting on customers - not clear what the other guy was doing.
Also, as per usual, they try and scare you into buying additional insurance and some toll package - both are a ripoff. We're covered by our credit card company and our car insurance. For the tolls, they accept cash, so it was fine.
22 Nov 2016
Pros: Quick and easy
1 Jan 2017
Closed Rental Return
Pros: Nothing. We drove from Sanford to Miami for New Years and we went to the return office at the Thunderbird Hotel at 11:45am and no one showed up to work. Completely abandoned and no way to return the rental. Then we were demanded to return to Miami or Ft Lauderdale Airport to return the car. On New Years in Miami?!!!What a joke. Very unprofessional and proved to me why people rent from Hertz or Enterprise. Thanks for the rental but you should probably have your employees show up for work. Open till 2pm or never open?!!
24 Jan 2017
Pros: Quick service
Cons: Finding the check out counter
28 Jan 2017
Pros: Great! Fast pickup, return & customer service, The car was perfect for us and a great price too.
22 Feb 2017
Unprofessional Customer Service
Cons: Unprofessional and deceitful representative. She lied to us to upsell the EZ Pass and also gave false information regarding the return of the car. Car wasn't what I ordered so I had to upgrade.The whole experience was a disaster and very disappointing.
8 Mar 2017
Pros: Staff at the desk was extremely pleasant to work with. They made me feel valued and upgraded my car for no charge.
Pros: Our trip plans changed due to an illness in the family and we had to fend for ourselves instead of relying on extended family for transportation. I tried to modify an Enterprise reservation to start earlier, but they "had no cars." I found a good deal in a few seconds thanks to the Kayak app. I took the hotel shuttle to the airport and completed the reservation during the ride. The paperwork was ready when I walked in and I was given an upgrade. I chose a beautiful car with less than 3K miles on it. Having this car made the whole trip easier. When returning to the airport, the agent took us back to the terminal entrance to save us a short walk with our bags. It was fast friendly and exceeded my expectations in every way.
24 Sep 2016
Pros: Service was fast, friendly and efficient at pick up and equally so for drop off. Price was extremely fair for the vehicle and car had absolitely no issues...clean with a full tank of gas. Good experience overall!
Cons: Wish there was a way to get my phone on the dash since I was using GPS so much... bit nothing I expect from a rental. All in all, can't think of a negative!
26 Sep 2016
Cons: They wanted to charge me more than my reservation stated and so I asked the guy if there would be any cancellation fee if I cancelled now and he said no. So I cancelled it and made a new reservation at Enterprise and Alamo still charged my credit card.
26 Sep 2016
Pros: Agent at pickup did a great job.
Cons: I was a smidgen off of full at return and was charged $9.99 per gallon. 2 gallons total. I take ownership that it wasn't 100% full, but feel their policy of $9.99 per gallon is a bit high.
7 Oct 2016
Cons: The truck was a little large fir me and hard to get into
2 Jan 2017
Pros: Vehicle had paint stains inside advice rep before taking the vehicle off the lot also advice rep when i got back nothing was really done about I believe Alamo should've offer some form of compensation.
4 Feb 2017
Pros: Price was great. Drop off and pick up were quick and easy
25 Feb 2017
Pros: easy searching
Cons: airport location was not obvious, made booking mistakes too easy.
2 Mar 2017
Pros: Excellent customer service. I accidentally reserved our car at another airport 25 miles away. No problem! Went above and beyond to get us a car...and waived the extra charge.
12 Mar 2017
Loyal people working there
Cons: Despite they were closed they just opened for me so that I can pick up my car. Really appreciated
Pros: The only thing I can say I liked about the car was that it had Bluetooth!
Cons: The car was awful it felt like it wasn't aligned while driving on the highway it felt like the car would go to the right!! Me and my boyfriend were not at all satisfied with the car!
9 Nov 2016
Pros: Hard working and extremely nice rental agents

23 Jan 2017
Pros: Friendly and fast service!
6 Feb 2017
Cons: Did not explain were the car was. it was not in the lot ,it was in a parking garage located 2 blocks away from the lot lots of wasted time looking for car
7 Feb 2017
Cons: They don't take debit cards??
6 Mar 2017
reasonably priced, great customer service.
Pros: Opted for the Charger and it was a pleasure to drive. It would be nice if some of the app features were active, like gps navigation, the very nature of rental implies a need for navigation. That aside a great experience.
