    I travel every 2 weeks and have used thrifty every time. I was very Disappointed in the options of compact cars as most of them were in poor condition. I had to chose one that was in decent condition but smelled like smoke.

    Counter staff wasn't helpful and they overcharged us in my opinion. Wouldn't have rented a car if it was going to be $300 for a weekend....absolutely absurd. Weren't helpful once we returned the car, when we got the car lady tried to explain all fees and I get gas/toll pass but those don't add another $140 to put it to $200....ridiculous and wouldn't recommend or use this company again.

    The car was fine, but The thrifty staff was grossly incompetent and unprofessional. First, they stack on additional property tax onto your bill and say that its standard procedure. This should be disclosed at the time of the booking online, not on the 11th hour when you are checking out the vehicle. Secondly, the counter staff gave me the car keys, turned of the counter lights and fled home (without even inspecting the vehicle). I was stranded at the parking garage for 2 hours because the exit gates were blocked and there was no one from Thrifty to check me out . It was not until 3 am that someone from Hertz gate called for help to let me out. To add insult to injury, when I went back to Thrifty in Dallas to get compensated for their negligence, the counter manager says, we will take off the property tax and that's all she can do because, I may have just been hanging out at the garage for 2 hrs at pickup to create a story. I mentioned that I have videos and pictures as proof of facts on their incompetence and will make sure to warn others of this episode

    We went to the Thrifty car rental counter in Houston and they tried to charge us a lot more money than we were quoted on EasyRentCars.com. I asked why it was so much more and the lady said because of the easy pass, I told her I did not ask for the easy pass nor do I want it. She took out the easy pass and the price was still higher, she then proceeded to tell me it was due to taxes, I said no, all taxes were included in my quote and her next reason was because I was returning it to a different location from my pick up location, again, I told her no, that was all calculated in my original quote. Since she ran out of excuses she decided to credit me the difference. We then proceeded to pick up our car and was told that they did not have any full size cars left, all they had was full size trucks. So we had no choice and drove off with a full size gas guzzling truck. At the end of our vacation we dropped off the truck at the San Antonio airport and had no issues there.
