Truck had a air leak and used more fuel than I thought it shouldn’ve, otherwise a very positive experience. Customer service was awesome on both ends especially Luis at pick up. Had to call the customer service line a couple times, they were not at all helpful and getting a live person was difficult.

There is no Thrifty counter at Schiphol Amsterdam Arrival T3. Go to the Hertz counter and you will see a sign that they manage Thrifty reservations and you will get a Hertz contract and car.
