Unless it is winter, there is no need for a 4-wheel-drive car, but a compact car is a wise decision to make in either case. Travelers who do not need too much luggage space or have many people with them will benefit from the mobility of a smaller car. With traffic conditions sometimes getting extreme in the city, a smaller car is easier to navigate and maneuver around.
Do not drive over 25 mph within the city limits of Cambridge, and slow down in narrower parts of the city. Outside Cambridge, drivers are permitted to go as fast as 50 mph, but check the posted speed limit signs, as regulations can change from street to street (usually between 45 and up to 65 mph is possible). Freeways permit drivers to drive up to 65 mph.
Finding parking in Cambridge can require some patience and time, but it becomes considerably easier when knowing where it is possible. The coveted on-street parking spaces are metered, so have quarters ready to feed the machine accordingly. Time restrictions usually apply from 8 am to 8 pm. There are also parking lots and garages available, which are certainly the best choice if parking overnight, but also quite pricey with an average rate of $20-30 per night.

Cons:I would have paid for a car wash. Exterior car not washed at all. Inside dash board dusty. Nobody checked that car. Location for pick up next to Le Meridian hotel. ( Awesome). Rate on car unbeatable. Kia Sol driving good. Will I rent again from Budget, absolutely. I will just require a clean vehicle.
Pros:interior was not clean, especially charged me $9 a gallon to fill the tank when I returned it low = $123!
Cons:most of the experience car was not clean. It could have been actually clean
Pros:Very cheerful staff taking care of business during the pandemic
Cons:more clearly explain ticketing steps for entering / exiting parking garage.
Pros:Very thankful to staff for providing their professional service during this time.
Pros:The car is pretty clean
Cons:Budget desk is in the Charles river hotel which is not difficult to find as long as you ask the hotel employee. However when we returned the car, the lady had a terrible attitude. There's a long line and it's almost closed which is not our fault but she still yelled at us
Cons:Knowledge of easy pass toll pay system not conveyed at pick up counter.
Cons:I had a special car and got charged extra when I asked for an SUV.
Pros:I was prompted to purchase insurance through your platform, which I did through Allianz for an added fee. However, I was then alerted by the rental facility where I rented the car that this insurance does not function the same way as their insurance and that, if I got in an accident, I would have to contact Allianz and file a separate claim, which would make the process much more difficult and time-consuming. Essentially, I purchased an add on through your platform that did nothing. I would like a full refund for my insurance.

Pros:Friendly staff, pick up an drop off easy.
8,4 Very Good
Pros:Staff were out in a wet snow renting cars !
Cons:Consider having the fuel tank filled, as much easier to return to some increment < full, as was asked for with my rental.
Cons:Difficult to find office to pick up car. Didn't realize it was in a mall and there were no directions given. Car smelled like smoke.
Pros:Pickup was relatively easy, although they forgot to give me an exit ticket to leave the garage.
Cons:The car had a cigarette smell in it. I also had a random $35 "Miscellaneous Fees" charge which I couldn't get dropped.
8,0 Very Good
Pros:The staff was helpful and friendly. The pickup experience was easy.
Cons:It wasn't possible to adjust driver sit horizontal position - the control for that was just absent and sit was locked. Luckily it was locked in a position that suit me well. The drop-off was a bit confusing - all places were occupied and sign was directing to 7th floor, but there were no designated parking places on the 7th floor, so I was confused whether I should just leave the care wherever, or maybe I missed designated places.
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons:I was given a car that had the left rear tire pressure very low: 25. The other three were at their correct pressure of 40. Before releasing a car to a customer, the avis should have taken the corrective measures so as not to give me a car with the warning light on in the display.
Pros:Kind staff at pick up
Cons:Extension too pricey
Pros:Great value for price and with very professional, cheerful, helpful staff.
Cons:Nothing in my perspective.
Cons:Our car wasn't ready on time, which is unacceptable. If we to order the car after the given time, we would pay extra.
Cons:I had to wait 30 minutes to pick the car up and the lady was not kind to me..she did not ask me the fuel options, did not explain much, just wanted me to sign and leave. I returned the car early with quick return but have not received my invoice yet, as it explained on the box. I should not have any extras but l am not sure whether they would charge me anthing extra
Pros:it was very straightforward to take public transit to this Thrifty location from Logan, for no charge and it took perhaps a half-hour which I thought fast. My car performed well and was both new and clean on the inside.
Cons:They don't have any information. Their policies are waste. Their toll charges are compulsory if you don't take it they put fine on you. Thier insurance charges are ao high. Just having car charges low as compared to other companies doesn't matter overall thrifty is super expensive including all insurance toll and other services. They don't have decent cars too.

Pros:Car and service was as expected.
Cons:Separation of collision and liability insurance was a surprise, but it turns out that's common.
Cons:I had booked my car rental 4 months in advance to ensure I would get the car I wanted for a road trip through New England. However, when I got to Thrifty they said they could not find the keys for the car I had requested. I had wanted a small car to save on gas mileage and the elevation I would be driving on. Instead they gave me a mid size car that went through a lot of gas. Also, the car reeked of cigarette smoke. The smell was so strong we had to invest in air freshners which did very little for the smell. I had tried spraying perfume as well which was only a momentary fix. We kept the windows down for most of the drive. When we would turn on the AC, a very sour smell would come through the vents. Also, we had been told rolls would be covered; however, before leaving we told the car had not been registered to EZ Pass so we would be responsible for all tolls, which added up. Long story short, do not rent from this company.
Cons:Why pick up at Thrifty Cambridge instead of BOS airport as agree at booking which we have to take Uber for another $62 for round trip to airport !
