Long wait to pick up Pre-paid rental car, and the first 2 cars assigned to me were then taken back as I was finally preparing to drive off the lot, due to deferred maintenance issues. Also, I was kept On hold for over an hour and then disconnected when calling for emergency roadside assistance.
1.9 HorribleAug 23 2021
About a million hidden fees and no phone number in existence to get ahold of the specific branch. Having to pay $23 for EZ Pass every SINGLE day I had the car when I used it 2 days or $15 EVERY time you go through a toll PLUS the toll? This is the literal definition of highway robbery. Skip Thrifty particularly from the airport if you don’t have to pick up there. What a giant waste of time and money. Plus the “deep clean” on the car left a used mask between the seats and what looked like sweat stains in the back. So glad that’s an extra charge!
1.9 HorribleAug 10 2021
Those are the most unprofessional people that I ever seen.They cancel the reservation and were very rude and condescending behavior.

1.9 HorribleJul 19 2021
Their office was closed when I arrived at 2155 for my 2200 reservation pickup. Another traveler arrived a few minutes earlier for her 2200 appointment and was turned away as well. She was told that the computer, system was wrong, or down, and they had no car for her. Avoid the JFK location like the plague.

Nothing. The experience was smooth from entering the front doors and to leaving after returning the car. Thrifty has improved tremendously.

The Dollar counter would not accept the “third-party” Allianz Global rental insurance. I did not have the time to call Allianz at the counter (which took nearly 50 minutes to complete the transaction that I already had a reservation for) when I did call Allianz, the automated answering system said it would be a 4+ hour hold time. I will be requesting a refund of my $121 dollars. Dollar charged me $299.50 for the same insurance.

1.9 HorribleAug 21 2021
Worst pick experience I have ever had. TOOK FOREVER. Total incompetence. Long line. Someone cut and the person at counter let her get away with it. Need to fire everyone and start over again.
7.9 GoodAug 15 2021
Pick-up desk could need better help for the only one who is helping the customers. Selection of cars is highly limited. No matter what you initially selected, you will have to wait more time to get what you requested for. Otherwise, the experience is good.
1.9 HorribleAug 8 2021
Kayak never went through with the rental, we ended up having to rent with a different car rental. We wasted 1 hour at the rentals trying to get our car that we rented.

Car was damaged in all 4 quarters at pickup. Also had a nail in one tire. They wouldn't answer the phone when I called to report it 5 min after pickup.
8.4 ExcellentJan 21 2020
Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.I normally don't opt for prepaid fuel but when the question of prepaid fuel came up I said that would be convenient since I didn't know of a gas station nearby (I have never rented a car from JFK Airport before). It turns out there is a gas station one block away from the rental drop off. It could not have been easier to get gas. Seems like the nice guy at the desk could have pointed that out.
5.2 OkayNov 25 2019
Staff very friendly and helpful on both pickup and drop offCar was in very poor condition (breaks very worn, windows did not function properly, poor wipers, car smelled like smoke)
2.0 MediocreOct 29 2019
Google Translation: When I arrived at the rental, I was told that because I was driving less than 25, it cost me $ 560 instead of the 130 I ordered and paid - even though I specifically wrote in the reservation that I was 23 !!!

Nothing. The worts experience I have ever had renting a car.I had a confirmed reservation for a Minivan. Once I got to the airport office, they just told "We don't have the minivan, rent in another location'
5.6 OkaySep 24 2019
Ez pass should be inlcuded in rent contract and not proposed separately to tourists that have no notion on how pervasive toll roads are in and around New York. To not include it is just a scam.

The car drove well.The rep never looked me in the eye during pick up or drop off: he spoke to the iPad and computer screen. I had to ask for the car to be washed. I waited for almost an hour between arrival and departure. Reps argued amongst each other. The entire office seems unprofessional and needs training.
9.6 ExcellentSep 12 2017
Happy customerCustomer service was second to none! The offer for pick up and drop off was very much appreciated. And the manager of the location that served me even have me extra two hours to return the car without surcharge when I called to inform them that I was in traffic. Awesome!Nothing at all.
9.6 ExcellentDec 3 2016
Friendly staff, good serviceGenuinely friendly staff who made sure all the customers were attended to and that everything was correct. They were able to give me a ride back to the subway when I dropped off the car, which was great since the place is a bit out of the way. The car was in great shape and didn't give me any problems. Will definitely be open to going back here for my next rental.The lot is hard to maneuver multiple cars in so at both pickup and drop off there was a bit of a wait to be able to get in/out. They also have pretty short hours(especially on weekends).

Shame on me for trusting HertzGranted, I picked up my car on Dec 23rd, which is a busy day given the upcoming holidays. But top to bottom, my experience was poor, at best. I booked at Inwood and received several conflicting messages directing me to pick up in Lynnbrook. The staff at Lynnbrook encountered a series of customers prior to my arrival and post my arrival, all of whom had varying levels of difficulty obtaining their rentals. I'm sure the jobs performed by these staff members is challenging, but their ability to mitigate the situation, deescalate, and treat paying customers with respect was nearly non-existent. When I returned my car to Inwood, I learned for the first time that Lynnbook staff was required to offer me a pick - up. No such offer was ever made. Also, the next day, I received a call from the Inwood office indicating that I had left an item behind in the car. I called back upon receiving the message and was told the rep who had contacted me was next in the office the following week, and that I should call back then. To be clear: no one told me what the recovered item was, or made any attempt to contact the rep who initially called me. The burden was placed squarely on me to perform diligent follow-up. As id I was the employee who worked for Hertz. Perhaps not a big deal in isolation. But this occurrence underscores a company wide culture which devalues customers time and expectations. I left feeling my purchase was not valued, that my time was unimportant and that the staff was not in attendance to assist me. I see no reason I should rent from Hertz again. Given that I rented another car earlier today, I can confirm I am acting on this self-imposed mandate.

Weekend RentalIt was nice car and drove perfectly fine. I might decide to buy that car now.The only thing I didn't like was the under 25 fee.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Inwood car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them.
