Checkout was terrinle
Cons: There was no full size car and my only option was a little mini-jeep. Of course, if I wanted to pay more there were PLENTY of vehicles to choose from. Car was damaged and agent didn't want to sign that it was. Took over an hour to get the car and leave. Agent was a bozo.

long wait to get car
9 Apr 2016
Total ripoff attempt
Cons: At check in, I was told that my reservation had been cancelled since my flight was late - but he could give me a car for 3x the daily rate of my reservation. After I showed him the "terms and conditions" that didn't include cancellation upon flight delay and that kayak didn't represent the appropriate terms, he miraculously found my reservation. The whole episode took 15 minutes and there were 10 people in line in behind me. It might explain why it took the folks I front of us 15 minutes as well. My guess is that they were running this gambit on everyone.
26 Apr 2016
Pros: It was cheaper when I arrived. I was given a Nissan Frontier and I loved it! While I was in VA it poured down rain and I felt safe. Both of the representatives were great.
7 May 2016
Pros: I received a nice new vehicle to drive for the week. Customer service was much better at the return.
Cons: I arrived a little early to pick up the vehicle and the manager was not very courteous.
10 May 2016
Closed on arrival!
Cons: The rental counter at Augusta airport was closed upon my arrival. I was not able to get the car I reserved. Had to get one from Budget, which was open.
28 Jun 2016
Pros: Great experience overall. Gave the incorrect pickup time but they still had vehicle for me.
Cons: Nothing bad to say.
19 Jul 2016
Pros: The customer service was excellent and friendly. The car was awesome for what I paid . No complaints! !!!
Pros: Easy rental experience. Quick pickup and return.
Cons: I didn't like that the agent didn't know anything about the extra insurance protection I paid $18.00 for and kept attempting to get me to get the Alamo/National insurance.

Great day trip
Pros: I requested a small standard - like Toyota Corolla. I got a jeep suv which was great and very comfortable! Friendly service at pickup and drop off. Car was super clean. It was a great quick rental for a day trip between work meetings and flying home.
Cons: I wish is wasn't so much higher to drop off at another airport, especially since they're only an hour apart. Would be nice is satellite radio was included instead of $5 extra, just felt like another fee.
22 Feb 2016
Pros: Super friendly gal at the counter. Drop off was fast and easy
Cons: They closed at 7 pm and didn't open until 9 the next morning. I wanted to drop off car later in the evening, and didn't know it closed so early.
26 Mar 2016
Pros: Nice clean car
Cons: No instruction book. Insurance doubled the rate
15 Apr 2016
Cons: We arrived in Augusa, on the way to a wake and Alamo didn't have a car available although we had made a reservation. We ended up renting a car from Hertz at five times the price of Alamo since we had to pay the "walk up" price.
2 May 2016
Excellent customer service by Alamo counter agent
Pros: Thw genuine & friendly counter service.
10 May 2016
Cons: Terrible customer service . After my reservation, i went to the counter to pick up and they did not have cat for me . Sochad to switch to hertz. Will never rent from this company anymore.
12 Jun 2016
Vehicle was dirty inside
Pros: Pick up and drop off was a breeze. Staff was really friendly.
Cons: Noticed dried food stuck to center divider console. Back door on vehicle didn't open.

21 Sep 2016
Pros: Fair price for a one-way, fast dropoff and pickup
Cons: Stained seat, heavily air-freshnered to get out previous scent, charged through the nose for gasoline when no gas station in the area had any gasoline due to the shortage
Pros: I appreciated the professionalism of the agent that waited on me and the courteous manner in which I was treated. He took the time to find the most comfortable car on the lot for me. The automobile, a 2017 Mazda 6, was a comfortable smooth riding vehicle with great fuel economy.
22 Apr 2017
Pros: Price was ok and counter staff was great
Cons: No washer fluid and tires didn't have adequate pressure. Had to stop for both and pay.
13 Oct 2015
Pros: The lady at the counter was great. They didn't have the car I reserved, but gave me (what they considered) an upgrade from an SUV to a minivan. But they said they would check with other companies to set me up with an SUV. It didn't matter, so I just took the van.
Cons: I dropped the keys in the late night drop box but I was called the day after I returned my rental asking where the car was. ... They had misplaced the keys, but found the keys somewhere and the van.
22 Oct 2015
Pros: Very well!
29 Nov 2015
Credit Card charged for $300 above and beyond depo
Pros: Car was fine, staff at Augusta airport was friendly and helpful
Cons: Credit card charged twice, once for the appropriate rate, another for $499!! the national hotline has left me on hold for 10 minutes and claims I am not seeing the two charges.
15 Dec 2015
Low-rate rental service
Pros: You get what you pay for...
Cons: It's deceptive advertising when you advertise certain quality vehicles, but knowingly know you don't have them in stock.
5 Apr 2016
Car was OK, staff sucks
Pros: Car was OK. Paid for an upgrade to go from a Rio to a Lancer... Not sure what kind of upgrade that is.
Cons: The folks that rent cars in Augusta move at the speed of smell and the car was just mediocre at best.
13 Apr 2016
Pros: Only place with a car last minute
Cons: Didn't have a counter at AGS. Called to inform I'd be late dropping off and phone rep couldn't give me a breakdown of new total cost. Said to call ATL location where the phone rang and rang and nobody answered
21 Sep 2016
Never made it to Augusta
27 Oct 2016
They over book and could not have a car was on my
Cons: They over book and could not have a car was on my own
Cons: As someone who has spent 10+ years designing surveys for companies might I recommend changing the default position of the rating scale questions in this survey from the base point of "Excellent"? That is very bad practice and definitely not something that Confirmit would have recommended :)
18 Nov 2015
Pros: Ease of renting. Line was not long. Car was immediately ready. Paperwork done promptly.
Cons: Car was not clean. Back seat had dirt and smudges on it.
2 Apr 2016
Pleasant and Effective Customer Service
Pros: Great car Chevrolet Impala and great agents on both ends of a one way trip. Rental car pick up always seems to take longer than it should no matter the company.
9 Apr 2016
My New Choice
Pros: Long time Hertz customer that has several bad experiences over the last year. This trip was the Masters and Hertz tripled the rate from the time of the reservation six months earlier. Cancelled and rebooked with Budget at a normal rate. We actually received an upgrade in class as that was what was available at checkin. Thanks Budget!
2 May 2016
Pros: Excellent car (Impala). Very comfortable & well designed.
Cons: The agent had me walk back out, all the way across the parking lot to get the mileage when I returned the car. Never had to do that before and maybe they could have told me to record it when I picked up the car.
6 Oct 2016
Cons: Budget was not the easiest reservation to pick up. every other rental company had 3-4 employees working the desk and budget had just one. I stood in line to get my rental for about 25 minutes waiting on the one customer in front of me to get his rental. Every other company was getting customers through in an average of about 5 minutes. Finally, Avis Car Rental called me over to assist me with getting my car rental. I was done with Avis in 5 minutes and the customer that was in front of me at Budget was still standing at the desk waiting to get his rental.
11 Oct 2016
Pros: Thx, for good people there.
18 Oct 2016
Pros: no drop off or pickup
14 Mar 2017
Pros: I liked how easy it was and how friendly everyone was
Cons: The car wasn't exceptionally clean on the interior
20 Apr 2017
Cons: Returning the car was a bit of a hassle; no one was in the parking area and when inside, no one was readily available for the return.
Cons: I reserved two weeks in advance and I still didn't get a car. They made me late for my event cuz I didn't get the rental til hour after because. They locked the keys in the vehicle.
25 Dec 2016
Pros: I reserved the car as I always do never had problems before but I had never dealt with thrifty. First Lady was mislead online into buying third party insurance which was useless, even the lady at thrifty told me I wasted my money......gee thanks! Then the vehicle I reserved for a week for a 600 mile one way road trip would cost me an additional 20 a day to cover the mileage or of course I could always upgrade to a truck with unlimited mileage for substantialy more money than my reservation which by the way required a 50 deposit online and an additional 200 deposit at the counter that no other place I've rented from required! Overall I won't rent from thrifty ever again nor refer them to friends or family!
7 Mar 2017
Pros: nice car
#1- The price doubled forms eh [rice you quoted. Your price indicated that it included taxes, there were tons of other add ons as far as fees and the price more than doubled.
#2 - The car smelled very strongly of cleaning products, we tried to open the windows as much as possible.
11 Mar 2017
Pros: Pick up and drop off was quick and efficient.
Cons: Did not have a full tank of gas at pick up.
29 Mar 2017
Pros: Needed to get from point A to point B. Not a fancy car but it was a great deal. Staff was great. Easy pickup in Augusta.
9 Jun 2017
Pretty good experience. Would rent from again.
Pros: I got the car size I asked for, which meant I got a car that was a size I am used to. Great gas mileage
Cons: There were additional charges beyond what I reserved the car for. The car performed pretty well, but seemed to struggle a little bit sometimes. In other words, it did not accelerate smoothly.
23 Jul 2017
Absolutely the worst
Pros: I liked that they pretended my reservation was worth something. Also, my wait time on hold to speak to worthless "customer service" wasn't bad.
Cons: No car available. "Reservation was for 9am, I showed up at 9:30". Cars in the lot were "pre-reserved" so I couldn't take one. With a straight face said the pickup truck (the only thing they had) has as much trunk space as the SUV I rented. Unless it rains or I have passengers. No help from "thrifty".
Pros: The entire process is pretty easy. Just remember that the Avis counter is now with Budget instead of the Avis counter.
Cons: Be careful about the insurance coverage through Kayak. That's not Avis' coverage but Kayak. If you have any problems, you have to go through Kayak not Avis. Luckily this didn't happen to us but it's good to know before spending the extra money.
22 Feb 2016
Pros: All good.
31 Dec 2016
CHARGED FOR 2 DAYS. HAD CAR FOR 4 HOURS.
Pros: I was charged for a two day car rental, when I only had it for a few hours. It has injected my soul with the fear of trusting this car rental agency ever again. *Thank you so much for making me feel comfortable when traveling (*sarcasm)
Cons: I was charged for a two day car rental, when I only had it for a few hours. It has injected my soul with the fear of trusting this car rental agency ever again. *Thank you so much for making me feel comfortable when traveling (*sarcasm)
19 Aug 2017
Pros: Not much.....
Cons: Rep was either u trained, didnt care, or wasnt empowered to handle my problem...
Phone line customer service was horrible!
This does it for me and avis!
10 Jul 2017
Paid Extra for a Round Trip Return
Cons: I paid a premium to drop a vehicle off at a different location than I picked it up at ($122 for a one day rental). The vehicle was a crappy Kia Rio that had a super low and uncomfortable passenger seat (my husband is 6'5" and couldn't see over the dash...) Here's the kicker.. I ended up driving the EXACT same car back for the return part of my trip... dropping the car at the original pick up location. So, essentially, I paid a premium to drive a crappy car for Avis back to it's original location.
The car also smelled like smoke.
Cons: Immediately after reservation I received email confirmation. Six hours later I received next email that my reservation was cancelled. In the meantime I didn't have opportunity to review my emails. Next day after coming to the Hertz location I was informed that they don't have a car for me. I was treated in very unpleasant way when I tried to contest that situation. The office manager also call the police asking them to come to the location because I don't want to leave their office. Police officer- after listening what happened - decided to help me out and gave me a ride to find different car rental company. If he would not help me (police officer) I would not have a chance to come on time to air port for my flight to Europe. Because I was forced to rent last minute car from different car rental I paid twice more for the rental. Also there was very a stressful situation for me. This is the last time I will rent a car from Hertz. Moreover I will inform all my friends not to rent a car from Hertz.
1 May 2016
No Car Reserved
Cons: I received an email confirming my reservation with Hertz, and when I went to pick the car up, there were no cars available. The young man at Hertz wasn't very friendly, and he told me that a reservation confirmation doesn't guarantee a car. This makes no sense to me.
28 Jun 2016
Cons: Booked for a full size car, the store didnt have it and they didnt even call me to explain the situation. They just gave me a upper level car and told me my total amount is more than what i have booked for. When i asked them for the reason than they said they dont have any car. Normally i never had problem with them before, but this time i am disappointed.
19 Jul 2017
Pros: Amazing! Excellent! I recommend this service!
