Cons: I wish I had been given the Volvo that Thrifty shows in the pictures. The actual car we get is always a much smaller and simpler model, unfortunately. However, the car only had 10km on it, which was a plus.

Much better than expected!
Pros: We had reserved a car through Thrifty many months before and had worried about adequate luggage space as our daughters were joining us for the second week of our trip to Switzerland. Had also researched the waiver/insurance situation for an overseas rental and had some anxiety about it. Both agents were very helpful, flexible and patient while we made the decision ax to model. She offered us a selection which suited us well. She also accepted our coverage on our Cap One VISA, which I had researched thoroughly beforehand.
Cons: It was clear that any unrecorded scratched on the car would be a liability for us, so we were careful to use the flashlight on our phones and go over the car carefully when we were in the checkout process. It is very important that you take the time to do this AND Mark die anything you see and take it BACK into the desk fir them to record. I know you are in a hurry to get moving, but this is ESSENTIAL. And research your particular credit card coverage carefully; if it isn’t complete, you may be in a tough situation and might do better paying the waiver. Ask what deductible your coverage is; you want ZERO.

Pick-up at Hertz store
Pros: The ride is okay. Great and smooth process. Price is reasonable.
Cons: Pick-up at hertz and anything happen, it will charge to us and Dollar can only pay later. So for safe reason just direct book to hertz but a slightly higher price otherwise can stick to Dollar.

Dec 11 2018
Cons: The booking process included a "ZERO FRANCHISE" insurance as optional. Even though I chose it, additional money was held from the Credit Card due to the fact that insurance doesn't belong to the car rental company. THAT S NOT CLEAR IN THE BOOKING PROCESS AND IN CASE OF DAMAGE WILL DEMAND LOTS OF PAPER WORK !!! WHAT IS NOT THE IDEA BEHIND A ZERO FRANCHISE INSURANCE !
6,4 Good
Feb 7 2019
Pros: The staff were helpful enough but they didn't work for Dollar
Cons: The insurance advertised was terrible - it covered nothing and when called they said "we are not a car insurance company" They should NOT be advertised as viable insurance on the Kayak website - this is seriously irresponsible. When we got stuck, the 24 helpline was shut

Pros: Staff were very helpful, price was great, pick-up/drop-off was straightforward. They didn't have the car we had reserved so we were given an upgrade for free.
Cons: Called ahead to let them know we would be 1-2 hours late with drop-off for which we were charged an entire day. Not a big deal but pro-rating would be more reasonable I think.

Pros: Nice car with plenty of room for luggage.
Cons: We oversee the fuel level in the between the car and the inspection sheet. After we left the airport we only realize there's a difference, only half tank in the car and was mark full tank on the inspection sheet. When we returned the car the inspector insist that we top up as per the level mark on the sheet :-(( and do not want to listen to our protest. I agreed that it my fault but i feel that the rental company must also made sure the the records are done correctly.

Good vehicle, great service
Pros: Service quality was good. Swift check-in and checkout. Car was clean and well-featured. Comfortable ride - we drove 500+ miles over 7 days and had no issues whatsoever.
Cons: WIsh someone had walked us through the features of the car, so we didn't have to look in dark corners for a USB socket or a car charger port.

Pros: I really liked the people who booked us in and got the car for us.
Cons: When I returned the car there were only 2 people to assist and 1 would not leave the office. We could not find a space to park the car and had to circle their lot 3 times. When I explained I was next to the only service rep he said there were 3 ahead of us. I said we need to catch our plane and we left the car in space 111. He said they would take care of it and send our receipt--- no receipt has come. I want a receipt

Great customer service! Wonderful car
Pros: The representatives who checked us in and out were extremely friendly and polite. Because we had to wait a little extra time they upgraded us to a Mercedes. Drove the country in style! When we needed to extend the rental for a few days they gave us no hassle at all.

Damage charge????
Pros: I got excellent service when I picked up the car. They gave me options to choose from and really went above and beyond what I normally expect from Hertz. (I have been a Hertz gold member for about 12 years). However when I got my receipt I found there was a $190 charge for "damage". There were some lousy pictures of the alleged "damage" but it looked like normal wear - maybe a suitcase dragged across the bumper as it was being pulled from the back of the vehicle. The "damage" would probably come out with a good car washing! So good car, excellent pickup experience but I leave feeling like I was ried off.

Rude because I was late, expensive fuel surcharges
Pros: The car was really really good. The mechanic was very nice.
Cons: It's hard to plan exactly when you arrive to pick up a car when you are on vacation. I arrived 1.5h late and the clerk have me a hard time because I was not exalt on time. I was tired and forgot to fuel up. I feel like I will be charged a lot of money since they took a $150 fuel deposit.

Oct 5 2019
Pros: We liked our vehicle once we finally got what we thought we were getting. They did work with us on switching vehicles but we're not very happy about it.
Cons: The photo showed on line was iof a large van, not a minivan. We were paying about $1,500, which is a lot money for a rental vehicle. There were six adults and seven pieces of luggage. We traveled with the same group a couple of years ago and knew we needed a larger vehicle. However, when we got to Avis, they tried to send us with a minivan. We went back to the counter and they reassigned us vehicles four different times! It was a painful and lengthy process. In the end, we finally got an in between size vehicle, which worked out fine. It's just too bad they didn't give us what was pictured initially. We end up spending the first two hours of our vacation trying to get our rental vehicle straightened out, which was rather irritating for all of us!

Great staff in Zurich!
Pros: When I booked, the airport was not a drop off option. We picked the car up in Florence and was a one-way drop. When we got to the city location in Zurich, the attendant told us we could return at the airport, no problem, he reviewed the vehicle issues we had, made notes & programmed the airport location into our gps. Airport drop off was quick & easy.
