Three guys where just hanging out. Two setting in cars and one walking around talking on this cell phone. Had to go and ask at the both about the car. The person that I help me at the both had to come out and push the guys to go and get the car for us.

Disappointed with the quality of car. In this day, I was shocked to be offered an overpriced box of a car and only having a key for the doors. Stinks when raining and armful of bags and find yourself stumbling around with a key. Also their insurance they offered was more than the actual car rate. Thanks but no thanks Thrifty!!

Car was good but people rude. My daughter took me to rent a car and older clerk with red hair couldn’t wait to say I couldn’t rent a car for my daughter without her information. My daughter (who is 60) responded she had a new Porsche and the car was for me. There was no reason to make the assumption my daughter needed the car since reservation was in my name and I was the one getting the rental car. She was just being rude.
