Cons:

The car was given to me with only a half tank of gas. The car was dirty, and it wreaked if an overpowering smell of air freshener that gave me a headache. A nice natural clean fresh car smell would be much better. The air freshener made it feel cheap.

Great counter agent. Very helpful and worked to provide me the best options for my weekend rental.

I rented through a third party, which was not clearly marked. Rentalcars.com. Our flight was cancelled due to torrential rains in New York City. We had to cancel our trip. Nevertheless, Rentalcars.com charged us the full amount. No recourse through Thrifty. I will think twice before using Kayak again,

Pros:

The drop off went fine. When I told the agent that we turned the car into about our horrible experience picking up the car, he deducted $10 off of the remaining fees.

Cons:

The pick up was the worst we have ever experienced. From the time that we arrived at the Thrifty counter until we were given the car, it was almost an hour. While we did receive a free upgrade, the wait was totally unacceptable. They gave us a coupon for 15% off of our NEXT Thrifty rental which probably should have just applied to the current rental.

2nd time renting from Avis. Usually use Enterprise. Take like 15 minutes to pick up your car. 1st rental was ok baring the issue with picking the car up. This time the attendant again said she had a car in the bay and to give her 5 minutes. 15 minutes later she said she was upgrading me to a chevy impala. The vehicle had over 20 k miles, did not have the USB port I requested, had so many dings and scratches I had to take 10 pics to document. I decided that the vehicle was not worth the rate per the condition. I had made my reservation on Kayak 48 hours prev but the attendant said they had no other vehicle for me to rent. I ended up having to go to Enterprise and lucky they had a compact Fiat available... that was clean and only had 1k miles. Also Kayak.. the vendor that you contracted with for damage insurance charges for 2 day when the rental company charges you for 1 day... Kind of a racket.. Get a better vendor!

Pros:

The process was great although I was a little concerned since I got the damage insurance through Kayak and Avis would not have that in their records - general concern since I've had rentals seem to accuse me of every problem with the car that wasn't identifiable on checkout.

Cons:

Mileage (miles per gallon) was much lower than stated for the model (~20%)

They didn't have the vehicle that I reserved. In fact, they did not have ANY vehicles at all. They handed me Budget's 800 number for help. Turns out there were no vehicles within 50 miles. I had to scramble to find alternate transportation. I will not use online discount reservation service again

Hertz closed the office, but never transferred it to another location. When I discovered this, Hertz wanted to charge me a $100 cancellation fee because they CANNOT TRANSFER the reservation to a different location. Also, I would have to pay the new current rate and would not apply the prepaid amount. I finally was able to find an 800 number person to rebook me to a different location. 2 days before pickup, the manager at the new location called and said he did not have the requested vehicle, but would TRANSFER it to a yet a 3rd location for me. When I turned the vehicle in, they tried to charge me $6.00 more for taxes because you could not prepay taxes. But the receipt I was handed at vehicle pickup showed that the taxes were prepaid. A rental with a lot of high anxiety!!
