Poor customer serviceCons:When we arrived they informed us that they didn't have the size vehicle that we booked, which was unfortunate because we had 7 people with luggage. The most that they could offer us for the inconvenience was the option to book another car at full price. The man was very short with us and repeatedly said that it wasn't his fault, rather that it was Kayak's fault and that he didn't need to accommodate us. Thankfully our friend had already booked a car with another company and allowed several of us to go with him, but our group was split up.Reviewed May 15 2017

What a joke returning car! No one checking in carPros:Not muchCons:There was a fair amount of wait picking up vehicle, not organized , not helping customers in order. So in order to eliminate that on our return we asked how much time to allow. We were told not busy , 1 1/2 hr prior to flight. Glad we didn't listen to that advice , would have missed our flight. No one checking in cars, only 2 people checking out while at least three sets of customers were frantically trying to check in their car. When I finally got someone to take my paperwork he looked at me the car the paperwork and handed it all back to me and said I was good. No printed receipt to verify car and fuel checked out! What a joke. I only hope in the end I'm not surprised by some bogus add on charge!!! WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS AGAIN. I rent cars several times a year and recently in Norway and Finland. Your competitors will be getting my business ! Very unhappy!!! And the icing on the cake wS after waiting 20 minutes for the shuttle we were told it would be faster if we walked to the terminal! Ouch!Reviewed Oct 5 2016

Pros:Staff was friendly. Pick-up and drop off were at an offsite location that was not communicated to me before hand and very difficult to find. When leaving, it was locked and had to call to get staff back into the location and drive us to the airport.Cons:Better communications and more convenient pick up and drop off at the Keflavik airportReviewed May 24 2021

Pretty Good!Pros:Drop off was quick. Price was excellent.Cons:When picking up the car, there were instructions upon entering the Thrifty Rental Shop to "pick a number". However, employees did not follow this system nor would call customers up to the counter when they were ready for another customer so there was confusion amongst myself and other customers on when and who would go up to the desk next to be helped. My suggestion would be to stick to the number system or drop it and have people just wait in line.Reviewed Mar 4 2018

Pros:car was perfect, snow tires were recommended and were very helpful! staff was great with warnings and weather and all informationCons:the premium insurance was very expensive but I do not regret getting it as the conditions were very extreme. It would be great to have some kind of road service feature for people, we were fine but we did see cars along the way that needed help, not sure if this exists but it would be good for people and we would have got itReviewed Dec 24 2019

Pros:The car was clean and fuel efficient and the staff was helpful.Cons:My GPS had its home recorded as the Thrifty in Reykjavik rather than the Thrifty in Keflavik. This made my trip to the airport interesting, but I made it all in time.Reviewed Sep 13 2017

Great car clean and econmicalCons:Rental was outside of airport which thrifty shuttled us to their building. The issue was we had to ask information where thrifty was located and where told they stand near the door with a Thirfly sign. Would have been Better if thrifty had a sign outside for shuttleReviewed Jun 13 2016
