Windows of the car had water spots/streaks left from cleaning. Potentially using a dirty towel to clean them? Using the wipers and spray did not clean them, we had to stop and clean them once we reached our destination, the spots are more visible at night when driving.

Vehicles usually work well. When the pick up and drop off work very smoothly, it stands above. Excellent job.

Employees were less than friendly. The car was dirty in the middle of a pandemic and the air didn’t work. I just flew in and out of Charleston and the rental experience with Alamo was top notch.

The car interior (or at least the trunk space) had not been cleaned prior to my rental. The staff was phenomenal, though. One employee even lent me her phone to call family when I'd lost my cell. I wish I'd gotten her name. I was so stressed at the time that I didn't think to ask.

Excellent one-way rental. Larger vehicle than we needed, but the rate was outstanding 1-day for $100. No mileage surcharge, TUL to MCI).

The car was not vacuumed out. Gas was not quite topped off. Car was turned in Monday morning at 440am and today was called stating vehicle is overdue. I called tue to ensure it was checked in an the said it wasn't yet. Called today and told the same thing again. Will not rent from hertz/dollar/thrifty again.

The tiny car they stiffed me with was nice and clean. I paid for an Intermediate and they gave me the keys for a small Ford compact. When I complained that is not what I signed up for, they told me, "I could take it or leave it." Me and my wife were stuck for driving way over 1,800 miles from Tulsa , OK to Daytona Beach, FL in that very small car.Every thing from the service I received. Still have not heard back from Dollar after I registered a complaint with them several days ago.

Fast and easy the pick up and drop off. No hassle and fast statement received once I had returned the car.No surprise charges when picking up the car. When reserving the car it should already calculated how much is expected to be charge.
6.8 GoodJan 28 2020
staff was great, drop off was easy.the additional fees incurred at drop off were not disclosed properly at rental. those fees should be disclosed when someone is making the purchase. it's shady and nobody feels good about their rental when they're slapped with that. the vehicle was clean and full of gas, i'm talking about the "standard" fees that everyone incurs.
3.6 MediocreJan 28 2020
Car was nice and cleanThere was no one there to drop off the car and they told my wife it would be $30 to change to a suv when they were out of the car we reserved... instead it was actually $60

the price was outrageous, but with that said, it was better than your competitors. It was too bad that in order to save $, I had to drop off the car at an off airport location instead of at the airport. The difference was quite sizeable.

Had to cancel due to personal reasons. They make it impossible to deal with in regards to cancellation. They say to cancel with booking agency and the booking agency says to cancel with Hertz. Totally confusing.

I left a jacket behind at the Hertz office but was told by them when I returned that the Lost & Found guy was not there & I would need to file a claim online. Cant they just always just have an employee for their Lost & Found on site
1.9 HorribleSep 23 2021
I checked out online with my DEBIT card and at no point at all did it state a Credit card was required. They withdrew the money from my bank account and approved the reservation. We show up to get it and he said they cant give it to us because I dont have a credit card THEN WHY ACCEPT THE RESERVATION WITHOUT A CREDIT CARD? WHY WITHDRAW MONEY FROM MY DEBIT CARD?? Now I have to wait over a week for my money back
7.9 GoodAug 23 2021
Picking up at Tulsa Airport was long. There was only one person working for Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty so we were all funneled through one window. It appears to be a slow transaction to begin with so him being on his own with a line of 10 customers in the 95 degree temperatures was frustrating. Drop off was super simple and I got a receipt 20 min later in my email.
1.9 HorribleAug 16 2021
I had to drop off my car on Sunday but they told me they were closed and I would have to pay for Monday.

Thrifty is owned by Hertz- Wish I had known that prior to attempting to rent. Not only did I not rent a car, I have still been charged for it
1.9 HorribleSep 9 2021
We tried calling 3 times to ensure the location would be open when we arrived (our flight was delayed) and could not get in contact with them. We called the location next to Thrifty and they assured us someone would be there and able to help us. When we arrived, no one was there and we could not pick up our car. We had to last minute get a new car from Enterprise and given this was a 'non-refundable' ticket, we could not recoup the booking cost.

I needed a car to drive to Dallas on short notice. I mistakenly thought I will rent a car from the airport location. I was able to reserve the car a pay for the insurance however, when I went to pickup the car I was turned away empty handed. Apparently, If you don not have a major credit card you can not rent a car. However they are more than happy to accept a debit card payment for the insurance. Very frustrating experience and I basically got ripped off. I am comforted to know all of this is in the fine print.

Pick up and drop off of the vehicle were both very quick and painless.I didnt like that when I picked the car up, there was no pre-rental walk around or inspection done with me, just heres the keys ,bye.

The women that helped us when picking up the rental was wonderful; the car was clean and new; drop off was super quick and easy. Will definitely use Thrifty again.Prices could be cheaper, but for a minivan with leather seats at about $70/day it’s not too bad.

My credit card that I use for car rentals had expired and you really can’t get a car without a credit card. Also, we rushed to get back by the deadline to the airport and there were very loose directions on what to do with your keys etc. I was nervous about not getting my deposit back.
1.9 HorribleSep 16 2021
I received a message while en route to Tulsa that Payless would not be able to honor my reservation as they did not have any vehicles. I ended up stranded as a result. I will never ever book a rental with Payless again.
6.0 GoodJun 1 2021
I liked the option with Payless to pick up the car on airport property vs. needing to shuttle to another location. Returning the car was simple and easy, which was appreciated.The staff was friendly at pick up, but we had to wait in line in the garage to get the keys for much longer than one would expect. A parking garage is not the safest of places to try to wrangle a toddler who has been stuck on a plane for several hours. When we got to the car, the vehicle wasn’t as clean inside or out as one would reasonably expect either. Despite paying more for a mid-size SUV to comfortably fit our standard sized car seat that easily fits in a similar mid-size SUV, it took quite a bit of effort to get the seat installed due to it being a tight fit and then not the most comfortable ride for the driver who had to scoot the seat closer to the steering wheel than preferred.

Car was dirty inside and out, had 40k miles on it, oil change came on mid trip, outside was all scratched up on all sides, no attendee or exit gate to report scratches, you just exit the airport and then you are on the road, the most we have e we had to pay for such a poorly maintained rental car

The car was a good value for the money.They did not have my reservation in the system when I dropped off the car, so I had to wait for them to finish with another customer so they could locate it. Luckily I had arrived at the airport with enough time built in, but if I was close on timing, it would not have been good.

5.6 OkayJan 3 2020
The staff was helpful, but the Avis's policy on accepting payment is nonsensical and downright idiotic. They would not accept my debit card. I literally use this card EVERYWHERE -- travel, retail, etc. -- both offline and online for much larger and much smaller purchases, and I've never had an issue. Then, Avis says they can't use that to rent the car to me? Are you kidding me? I'm a Preferred Plus member and have rented cars from you many times. You know you can trust me to pay, and you know who I am. (I literally could've walked over to an airline ticket counter, used my debit card to buy a refundable ticket, returned to Avis to rent a car [since that's the only way they said they'd accept my debit], and then returned to the airline ticket counter for a refund. That makes NO sense.) AFTER THAT FIASCO AND ARGUING WITH THE STAFF TO NO AVAIL, I tried to see if they could use my American Express card that's in the system (since I use it regularly for work). They needed a code, but I didn't have the card (it was in my home in another state). I got on the phone with American Express, and they were willing to give a 1-time code (they said they do this regularly with companies when their clients don't have their cards). Unfortunately, Avis didn't accept that offer either. GRRRRRRR. I ended up having to get a local family member to swipe a credit card of theirs. So frustrating!
