Reserved a car and went to go pick it up and upon arrival we found out they had closed before actual closing hours. Talked with another person that was there at the same time and they mentioned thrifty had given out all their cars. I shouldn't have been able to reserve a car ahead of time if they're just going to give out all available vehicles.Reviewed Jun 5 2024

Moved us from Thrifty to Alamo. After waiting line for 30 minutes someone tells us if we made a reservation that day or the day before they are booked and we have no reservations. Continued to say for those of you who booked two days ago or prior, you have a 2 hour wait.Reviewed Jun 4 2024

they were rude and they had all these other rules that I had not had read about. I will never rent from them ever again as the car was dirty and I was basically told it was my fault if I took the car. All the cars I was able to choose from were stinky and looked very rush to get cleanedReviewed Jul 6 2021

Pros:Staff were friendly, and the car was clean when i received it.Cons:Having my reserved car ready to go, instead of having to wait for over 4 hours in line and to see if i even will have a rental car, (the staff told us they are out of rentals) Also.....have your Thrifty counters open! Both locations were CLOSED and i had to deal with another rental company to just get my reservation for pickup/drop off.Reviewed Jun 1 2021

Pros:The staff at the pickup was great!!! The car was excellent and provided a safe journey over our 1600 mile trip.Cons:At pickup and drop off, we ended up going to the old Thrifty locations and had to be redirected to the Right location. Communicating that you have merged companies and local ions for drop off and pick up would be really helpful. But I’m the end, your staff at DAL and LAX we super awesome and friendly.Reviewed May 30 2021

Top tips for hiring a car from Thrifty in Dallas

  • Even though Dallas isn’t as large as some other big cities in Texas such as San Antonio and Houston, it does stretch out over nearly 400 square miles. And when you include the entire Dallas-Fort Worth area, it stretches out over more than 9,000 square miles. With these things in mind, you will almost always want to book Thrifty car rentals in Dallas. You won’t be able to get around very effectively if you aren’t able to secure a rental car that you can use throughout your time in Texas.
  • When you rent a car from Thrifty, you’ll be able to choose from compact cars, full-size SUVs, and almost everything in between. If you’ll be traveling with a group, you might not be able to avoid renting an SUV or even something like a minivan. But if you can avoid doing it, you should try not to rent a car that will be too large since it could limit your ability to get out of traffic if you ever get stuck on the Dallas highways that can get congested at times. You’ll be better off going with a smaller car that you’ll be able to use to work your way out of traffic fast. It’ll also provide you with better gas mileage when you’re driving all over the place in Dallas.
  • Because Dallas is so big, it can be confusing to find your way around the city when you’re just starting to get the hang of it.

As an added bonus, it should also make it possible for you to steer clear of any traffic in the city.
