Poor/inattentive customer serviceCons:When I arrived at the Thrifty at the airport in Oranjestad the clerks working the counter were extremely slow and unhelpful. After waiting for 30+ minutes, they told me that I would have to take a 30 minute cab ride to another Thrifty location to pick up my vehicle. Upon arriving at the second thrifty location (after taking a $25+ cab ride), this location didn't have my rental car either but offered to give me another one if I agreed to return it to the same location. The following week, when I went to return my car at the same location, it was closed and I had to drive another 10 minutes out of the way to return it to yet another Thrifty location.Reviewed Aug 14 2016

Cons:Explicitly asked the people at the counter and customer service on the phone if my girlfriend can return the car since she was listed as a driver. I checked with them 3 times and each time they said it would not be an issue as long as she was a driver. When she went to return the car they gave her a very hard time about it stating that I would need to be there since it was under my name. I wouldn't mind being there to return the car, but I had to work and we were told she could do it. I really don't like being lied to.Reviewed Dec 20 2016

Cons:When I showed up to pick up my car they informed me that they didn’t have any compact cars available. They only had mid size cars available and it was going to cost over twice what I had originally booked the car for. Because I had made the reservation a month prior I was stuck and had no choice but to pay the extra. Terrible customer service! Very slow and could care less that they over booked their cars and put that burden on their customers.Reviewed Dec 28 2020

Pros:People were nice, the women at the airport was great.Cons:Reserved my car at 10am to pick up at 12:30-1. Get there they are on lunch(not a huge deal ,I get they need breaks but no one told me so I waited 30 mins.) once they come back she tells me she doesn’t have the car I want, so I took a tiny compact car. A little communication would have been good is all.Reviewed Dec 19 2020

Pros:Easy drop off. Slow pick up.Cons:Check in process slow. When I selected the Aruba airport in my search criteria, it switched my pick up location on me. Was very deceptive. 😑 and if we wanted to pick up at airport they were gonna charge us a lot more. Finally got it resolved but wasn’t impressed.Reviewed Mar 21 2021

Cons:The total charge quoted to me was $221.02 for a 9-day rental. I had phoned Thrifty when I had made the reservation to inquire where the car pickup location is, and the representative stated that he believed it was the kiosk at the airport. Even the copy of the reservation stated "Free Shuttle To Car". However, when I checked in at the airport kiosk, they stated that the pickup for the vehicle was offsite from the airport, that they did not provide a shuttle to the offsite location, and that I would have to take a taxi to the pickup point. They claimed that the statement in the reservation copy that I produced at check-in was no longer in effect and that it was shown there in error. Instead, the offered to have me pick up a vehicle at the airport, but that I would have to pay an additional $24.91 USD + tax for "Airport Fee", which raised my total rental fee to $246.40 USD, an increase of $25.38 USD. I was not in a position to seek a taxi at that time, so I reluctantly agreed to accept the additional airport charge. Other competitive car rental firms that I've used for many prior years all offer free airport shuttle to offsite pickup and drop-off locations. If I had known this beforehand, I would likely have rented elsewhere who also quoted me competitive rates. Although I have rented from Thrifty a few times in the past without issues and was satisfied with their rentals, this time I feel I was a victim of erroneous advertising and a misleading claim of a bargain rate.Reviewed Oct 13 2019

Cons:Maybe a quick orientation of Aruba roads. E.G. speed bumps not well marked or seemingly located randomly. Roundabouts or circles, outside is for exiting and inside for going straight.Reviewed Apr 3 2021
