THRIFTY CAR RENTAL REFUSED TO HONOUR RENTAL AGREEMPros:THRIFTY are attempting to charge Kayak customers SEVERAL TIMES THE CAR RENTAL CHARGE PLUS FIVE THOUSAND CHARGE ON CREDIT CARD. Is this due to THRIFTY loss of The RyanAir business in recent months? There appears to be a Link.Cons:THRIFTY CAR RENTAL REFUSED TO HONOUR RENTAL AGREEMENT AFTER been PAID almost 150 EURO for an eight day rental. When I Arrived at the Rental counter THRIFTY first attempted to give a small car, INSTEAD OF THE RESERVED STANDARD SIZE VEHICLE. Then THRIFTY tried to charge an ADDITIONAL insurance 420Euro Four Hundred and Twenty Euro PLUS AN ADDITIONAL FIVE THOUSAND EURO ON MY CREDIT CARD!!! THRIFTY ARE UNPROFESSIONAL. THRIFTY ACCORDING TO THRIFTY COUNTER STAFF IN DUBLIN Airport have recently lost the Business of Car Rental to Tourists attached to the RYANAIR APP. There appears to be a direct Con nection between this loss And THRIFTY CAR RENTAL ATTEMPTS to have New Kayak Customers pay MANY TIMES OVER THE ADVERTISED CAR RENTAL COST. This is I believe a FRAUDReviewed Feb 23 2016

Mid size cars (Skoda Fabia not Astra)Pros:I rent an Astra with ar conditioning. Thrifity gave me a Skoda Fabia without AC. At the desk rental the attendant has confirmed that the car size for this rental is Fabia and there was no AC. The car got a flat tyre during the trip.Cons:Car type is not Astra as advertised, is a Skoda Fabia, very short on accessories.Reviewed Mar 25 2017

Not honest companyCons:I arrived at the Thifty rental counter in Dublin and they told me that they were going to put a $6,000.00 hold on my card because I declined the insurance for the car. I never take the additional insurance. The original cost for the 2 day rental was $58. When they added the insurance it would have been $178. The rental agreement was for $58 total. No mention of the increased charges. Not an honest transaction.Reviewed Mar 9 2016

Pros:The drop off was very efficientCons:It took quite a few minutes at pick up; not sure if they weren't expecting as many customers at that time or just didn't have enough staff. Took about 30 mins to get our car.Reviewed Sep 28 2016

Had to cancel because they didn't have the vehicleCons:We had to cancel upon our arrival because they didn't have the vehicle we needed and reserved. We had to find another car rental option on the spot which was challenging. We are very disappointed in this entire experience. We will not use Kayak or Thrifty again. The site can't be trusted traveling internationally.Reviewed Jun 28 2016

Thrifty lies about the priceCons:The rental price was supposed to be ~45$ without insurance. Since my Credit Card covers insurance there was no need for it. It turns out that Thrifty throws in a ~6$/day "administration" fee if you don't use their insurance. So the choice comes down to: ~20$ for their insurance ~6$ for admin fee for no insurance. The initial rental quote said nothing about this "admin" fee.Reviewed Jul 6 2016
