Desk was closed with zero signage. I received a email stating “skip the line” in order to check out virtually via “Web Check Out”. The process did not work despite repeated attempts. The original email confirmation I received came from Hertz, so I tried that desk, which took 1 hour to go through before being seen. After which they said they could not help me and I needed to go to Dollar instead. I then proceeded to wait in the Dollar line which took an additional 30 minutes, only for them to tell me I didn’t need to wait in line at all because I had completed “Web Check Out” (which never worked). Dollar sent me to the garage where they accepted my reservation but still had to wait yet ANOTHER 45 minutes before finally getting in a car. Absolutely terrible management and a terrible experience. Will never use Thrifty again.Reviewed 12 Jul 2024

Check in online was good but the next step to select vehicle was very disappointing- did not go through. Then no response. Thrifty counter at airport was closed- long line at Dollar counter: then had to go on lower level at another counter to get car. Nearly 2 hours before we get car: what’s the use of checking online?Reviewed 27 May 2024

Car was good but wait time at rental counter (30 minutes) and then in the pickup lot (another 30) was extensive. Seemed understaffed and low on stock. Had to take a minivan to prevent an even longer wait.Reviewed 4 Feb 2024

When I booked, there were gas vehicles available for the same price but was given an electric vehicle with no instructions on how or where to charge it. I upgraded to a gas vehicle and it ended up costing me more when they were available for the same price in the beginning. The car I ended up receiving worked but felt like the clutch was slipping and wouldn't engage properly.Reviewed 17 Jan 2024

Cons:There was a more than 45 minute wait at the counter when we went to pick it up. We cancelled the reservation at that point and found a car at another agency instead so we don't know how long it would have beenReviewed 31 May 2021

Cons:The line for pick up was 3x longer than any other line in the miami airport, thrifty center was shutdown sonhad to stand in line for the dollar rental. Back windows of our car did not roll up all the way when putting the top up so had to manually pull them back into place. Will choose another rental company if visiting miami again.Reviewed 24 May 2021
