    Reviewed: Saturday, September 18, 2021

    They charged me a higher rate than I agreed to through easyrentcars. When I showed them my prenegotiated rate, they said they would only match it if I could show them a daily rate in my confirmation, which it did not have. It only had a total rate. When I got the car, I noticed that they had not cleaned out snacks left by the previous renters. Finally, after driving off the lot, I noticed damage to the underside of the passenger rear view mirror, which was covered with electrical tape, which blended in well with the car’s black paint. I told Thrifty about this damage, but they wouldn’t tell me if it was pre-existing damage they knew about, or if I needed to do anything to document it. Now I’m worried they will try to charge me for it.
