Quick and easy pick up and drop off
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2019
Staff was friendly and helpful. Drop off was easy.Bigger waiting area. We had to wait almost 4 hours due to the time I had requested the start of my rental. One family took the whole air conditioned area and stayed there

A bit of a wait, but good car.The car ran really well, and was a slight upgrade.The line at the Port was pretty long to pick up the car. Also, the car had no USB charging port. The car also wasn’t completely cleaned; the cup area had junk from the last user.

The pick up and drop off were excellent.The shuttle from the cruise ship was extremely delayed. Had to take an Lyft ride. The car I had reserved was not available.

Lovely attendant receiving the car.No service available for getting you to your final destination which was advertised.

I wish they would've told us how many tolls we'd have to pay on the major highways in Orlando. At one point we went through a toll that only took coins. We were unable to pay the exact toll which was stressful. Also there are no accessible gas stations near the Orlando Airport. Wish they would've offered for us to pay our gas up front to save us the hassle of finding a nearby gas station which required us to pay tolls twice just to get there.

I did not like it very much! When I went to get the car on Merrit Island the seller made me use another card, different from what I had used in the app, and paid for it. With this he must have created another reservation, resulting in a duplicate payment upon the return of the vehicle. How do I gI paid twice for the rent. One when I applied for the app, already cashed in my Debit card, and another when I returned the car. Besides the fact that when I went to get the car on Merritt Island the seller did not want to accept the same card that I made the payment in the Kaiak app.

Never againEasy to book.Contacted support and all is ready, we go to the lot, person advises us that they have no cars available, once we tell him that we need it just for a few hours within the city limits then he finds us something, however problems hit when registering cards, no debit maestro accepted and it didnt specify on the siten my friend gives a card and accepted but then her DL was required, then he advises us that i cannot rent as i am 23 and only over 25 can rent a car, while on the website it says that it is possible to rent it just is more costly which is fine. Stupidly on the website my card was accepted and i brought cash for incidentals and offered to pay full in cash but did not accept it. So we never got our car and it ruined our day, not to mention walking in rain afer all that... stupid.

DropoffOnly one person working at pickup point. Very long wait
10.0 ExcellentDec 10 2018
Easiest check in pick up and drop off I have ever hadShuttle from cruise ship didn’t run very often so we just took an Uber to the office, no big deal but would have been nice to have the free shuttle from port Canaveral more conveniently running.

Long lines, excessive waiting, poor experience overallShould have paid more, for any other company besides Thrifty/Dollar.Understaffed and slow, exceedingly long wait for shuttle and again at office for staff to process rentals.

The return at airport was smoothThe bust to pick us at the Carnival port never arrived and the Budget driver took us to Thrifty. Upon arriving there was no attendant so we had to wait for him to arrive.

Dropped off the car and was immediately taken to the port for our ship. He was VERY HELPFUL. I'm sorry I did not get his name but he seemed to be the only on there. Besides checking us in, he drove the shuttle to the port.Nothing!!!

Slow pickup at Port CanaveralCar was clean. Once we got to the Cape Canaveral office things went well.We waited for about an hour for a pickup at Port Canaveral. We watched as every other passenger that had disembarked the ship with us got picked up by multiple trips of all of the other rental car vendors' shuttle buses. Then it was just us Thrifty folks waiting in line and wondering if they would ever come. Repeated phone calls to the Thrifty office in Cape Canaveral went unanswered. Eventually we were picked up. But I will certainly never rent from Thrifty again at this location.

ConfusionVehicle gas mileageCar had an oily film which made it difficult to see out the windows without repeatedly cleaning and vehicle had been smoked in a lot. The smell of smoke irritated us both. We even tried spraying the car with a powerful hospital deodorizer, but were never able to eliminate the smoke odor.

Ease of drop off (as long as you don't want a receipt or need to talk to someone).The gentleman at the desk was rude and unhelpful. It was crowded and he did not deal well with the customers. Very unorganized.

Some Merritt Island car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them.
