Pickup disorganizedPros:Arrived in Birmingham for the pickup on a cold night. Took 30 minutes to get my car. Very disorganized. Then Toyota Rav 4 or equivalent rental was not possible, got a Kia Optima. A really bad experience except the young man in the rental booth was doing his absolute best with a chaotic situation, and he went the extra mile in trying to make the situation bearable for my wife and me..Reviewed Dec 27 2017

BlahPros:Drop off was smooth. That was the best part. LolCons:Car seats were filthy and there was a computer issue during pickup which created a 30 minute delay to my road trip. Also cars are hard to find. An employee should escort customer to vehicle. I spent 10 minutes walking in circles looking for it.Reviewed Jul 25 2018

Nice CarPros:Nice, low mileage car. Was given a free upgrade.Cons:Car had a smell of smoke. Had to buy and use air freshener to get rid of the smell. There was no one there to receive the car upon returning it. Had to go back to the rental desk for turn-in.Reviewed May 6 2017

Had reservation but no car.Pros:I eventually got my car.Cons:I had made my reservation several weeks in advance but when I arrived they were out of cars. The ladies at the counter, who were put in a horrible position by the company, had to explain to everyone that they were out of cars. Apparently, Thrifty had shipped a good portion of their cars to TX and FL to help out with hurricane victims. While I certainly applaud their effort, they had all my contact info and should have called / text / emailed that there would be a considerable wait for my car pick up. Better yet, they should have been able to forecast how many cars had been reserved and then ship the remainders to TX and FL. Maybe they should hire me as a consultant to help with their obvious data management needs.Reviewed Sep 26 2017
