They charged me $17.65 for 2 gallons for gas even though I filled up the car right before I brought it in just 3 miles from the drop off location. Scammers! The car was completely full! Their process for trying to get a refund for fraudulent charges is ridiculous. They have no one you can even talk to on the phone. They’re liars and thieves.Reviewed Mar 19 2024

No cars available even with reservation. Had to rent from a different company at 2x the price.Reviewed Feb 23 2024
review fromkayak
I was told at the counter that there were no cars available and that I would have to come back later. Arriving at 2am, and being stranded in Atlanta is NOT optimal. I will never use them again. Absolutely ZERO communication and unprofessional. DO NOT RECOMMEND!Reviewed Nov 13 2023

The line at the desk was 2 hours long (they didnt have enough people managing the huge crowd). So we had to leave and get an uber because we were going to be late. Then there was no refund on the reservation so we lost $300. I'll never do this again.Reviewed Jun 17 2021

Pros:nothingCons:there was 50 plus people in line and after 30 minutes at atlanta airport no one was moving. No one in reservations was telling people what was going on or why the line was so long.

FAQs about hiring a car from Thrifty in Atlanta

  • What are some of the advantages of booking with Thrifty car rental in Atlanta?

When you join the program, you save 15% on your rental, plus you also get priority service when renting a car, so you can skip any lines and head straight to your car when you arrive in Atlanta. This can be beneficial at a busy airport like the one in Atlanta, especially when traveling on holidays and weekends.

  • If I'm traveling to Atlanta with my family to go to Six Flags over Georgia, what will be the best time to drive from Atlanta?

    Because plenty of people bring their kids to Atlanta to head to this great destination spot, they often want to know the best time to head to the park after they book Thrifty car rentals in Atlanta. Just like any large city in the United States, Atlanta is going to have busy traffic on Interstate 20 heading to the park in both the morning and evening rush-hour periods but especially in the evening when folks are leaving downtown. Your best bet for travel times is mid-day, and if you can go on weekdays, you will also find less traffic than on weekends and holidays.

  • What kind of parking is going to be available for me for my rental car in downtown Atlanta?
