Horrible experience.Reviewed 14 May 2024

Pros:The employees at drop off verbally say one thing but once the billing statement is email there is something else.Reviewed 25 May 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:The line to pick up was very long. Then the only card I had was my debit cards. Even though I had a photo of my Mastercard they said they could not use it so I did not get to rent a car. Budget will take debit cards so I thought I would use Budget again, They were booked, which is why my son rented a car for me at Thrifty online using his card. Live and learn.Cons:The pick up line at the airport was very long. Thrifty could take debit cards,Reviewed 9 Mar 2021

Cons:Car had high mileage and a lot of dings and scratches. But was in good mechanical condition.Reviewed 18 Dec 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:The car.Cons:The attendant at the pickup site was very helpful within his limitations. He spent an inordinate amount of time calling the back office(from what I believe to be his personal cell phone) to get a confirmation code. The process took close to half an hour. My reservation was prepaid with the tax portion being the only residual so I do not recognize the need for that much time being taken to process this transaction. It seemed that there was no real advance preparation of the rental prior to my arrival. I do not fault the attendant, I fault the back office support. I expected better service.Reviewed 18 Nov 2019
