Misleading pick up location led to major hassle.Cons:Booked via CarRentals.com and although my confirmation email said it was a hotel, the pick up location address mapped to the aiport location so didn't worry too much. When I arrived on Friday night, I was told the rate would be $1000 more for the week since I was picking up at the airport not the hotel -- or I could wait until the next morning and pick up at the hotel. I chose to wait, but by morning the hotel had no available car for me. After a long phone call to Thrify customer service and escalating to a supervisor they finally agreed to honor my reservation rate and get me a car, I just had to traipse back to the airport. A major hassle and extra expenses in Uber fares to get the car I reserved. Thrify personnel said this frequently happens as carrentals.com will just switch the location to get a better rate. Beware of this trick!Reviewed Feb 5 2018

Upsold based on a liePros:The vehicle performed generally as advertised.Cons:I had originally booked a minivan for our two week vacation in Kona Hawaii. However, when we arrived to pick up the vehicle, the counter agent strongly dissuaded me from renting the minivan and told me I really needed to get a 4-wheel drive SUV. He indicated that there were many areas over the island were virtually inaccessible without 4-wheel drive. Further, there were many parks that would not allows us to enter without a 4-wheel drive vehicle. We drove all over the island and NEVER needed 4-wheel drive. But the agent was successful in getting me to spend an extra $400 of my money over the course of two weeks. I have no intention of renting from Thrifty again.Reviewed Nov 13 2017
