There were no cars available when we got there at 8. We were mistakenly sent out to the airport where there were also no cars. It took 3 hours to.get us on our way and I missed half a day with my sister.Reviewed Apr 10 2024

review fromkayak
The car was from Florida, the tires have +42K miles on them, Kentucky get lots of rain, the low tread depth is not adequate in moderate to heavy rainfall (hydroplaning). Ok for more miles in climate area like Arizona. I have lots of driving experience with various tires in extreme weather conditions these type of tires are not safe for this climate region in the fall.Reviewed Sep 22 2023

Pros:Nice clean carCons:After pre-paying we got to counter and 600.00 was help as a security deposit! Unbelievable.Reviewed May 13 2021
review fromkayak
Cons:Upon arrival, they did not accept our reservation through Kayak because the person on the reservation was not present. We tried MULTIPLE times to adjust the reservation to reflect the change in driver through kayak. Kayak was never available to do so. Because of kayaks lack of adequate costumer service, Thrifty made us make a different reservation. They charged us an OBSENE price for an average car. I understand Thriftys policy. Our frustration is with kayak and their horrible customer service.Reviewed Apr 23 2021

Pros:Car was okCons:1. Arrived Friday evening. There was a 1 hour wait in line to get a car. Thrifty shares space in the garage with Hertz et al and there was just one man behind the counter. Unbelievably bad service. Waited longer in line than the drive to Clarksville. 2. Upon return, I didn't have time to fuel the car. Knew it would be costly, but it didn't help that they lied on the form and said they had to put 18 gallons in it. The gas level was at half. Do Kia's really have 36 gallon tanks?Reviewed Mar 23 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:I liked the drop off more than the pick up. The lady acted as if she didn’t want to be there. She was ok nice. Definitely not the worse but just made me feel like I was a burden to her.Cons:Overall ok I will rent again but wish I could have been more comfortableReviewed Mar 7 2021
