Pros: Drop off extremely easy.Cons: The value is not good.
10.0 Excellent20 Jan 2021
Pros: Quick service, brand new car
10.0 Excellent23 Dec 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and professional at both Boston and Trenton. I encountered some issues locating the proper pick up and drop off locations, otherwise everything went fine.Cons: A better description of the pickup location (in this case, which floor and building at Logan Airport) and how to drop off the car (in this case, that you have to get a ticket at the Trenton Airport parking lot and then bring it, the keys, and the mileage to the counter)
4.0 Okay15 Dec 2020
Pros: The staff at the drop off and pick up were excellent. Very friendly and helpful.Cons: When I picked up the car the "Low Tire Pressure" light was on. I figured I would just add air to the tire, when I got to my destination. The next day the tire pressure was down to 16lbs of pressure. I observed a slow leak in the tire. I then drove to the Enterprise office, where they told me they had no other cars to give me. The Enterprise employee (who was very helpful) arranged for a car to be towed from another facility. After sitting in the car and waiting for three hours the car arrived. I don't blame the employee, she was excellent. I can't believe that Enterprise depletes inventory of vehicles, in case something occurs. If this occurred after hours, no vehicle would have been provided until the next day.
10.0 Excellent4 Dec 2020
Pros: The staff was extremely friendly. They asked if I needed any help with directions and were supportive.Cons: The Enterprise front desk personnel answered my yes or no payment question very round about and I had to ask several times to get a straight answer. But they were friendly and helpful overall.
10.0 Excellent29 Nov 2020
Pros: Amadeo was super helpful, considerate, and patient with my trying out different cars! Excellent customer service!Cons: Nothing really except if it could have been free of charge!
4.0 Okay23 Nov 2020
Pros: Not easy, wait 30 min to get the car. Car had a burned seat... So, I'll don't use this again
10.0 Excellent27 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and it was easy to drop the car off at the airport

2.0 Mediocre9 Apr 2021
Cons: They didn't have the car I paid for.
8.0 Excellent28 Mar 2021
Cons: When picking up the vehicle, someone actually at the counter. There were signs directing to a downstairs kiosk, but then when I got there, thr agent said I should havr been upstairs because I wasnt a premium member. He was kind and assisted me anyway, but it could have been less confusing.
6.0 Good18 Mar 2021
Pros: We were able to get a car. It was a newer year. The trunk size was good.Cons: The price. We were told that we would get a Toyota Corolla, but we received a Hyundai that didn't have much power, was a little dirty, and really didn't have much of a back seat. The car came with some dents and scratches. Overall, we feel a bit disappointed with Thrifty.
2.0 Mediocre18 Mar 2021
Cons: Minimal cars, they say its due to them going bankrupt. Then I was told if I did not use the rental for all the days I booked it for I would only be charged for the days I used it. They charged for the 20 days booked and I only used it for 8 days. I should have stuck with enterprise.
4.0 Okay8 Mar 2021
Pros: The gentleman at the airport was super helpfulCons: Waiting until pickup to charge another $200 "deposit" was a joke. I didn't have enough available credit to cover an unexpected charge that high. The fact that I couldn't pay with my bank card or cash was inexcusable. I was forced to call my credit card company and make a payment over the phone and to verify with my bank that the funds were available and then they pushed my payment straight through so I wasn't stranded at the airport and missed the funeral that was the whole purpose of my trip. A little heads up would've prevent this whole debacle. Also the car was not cleaned. There was what I can only assume was a soda spill on the dashboard and the center console flopped around the whole time. I can honestly say I will NEVER use Hertz again.
2.0 Mediocre19 Feb 2021
Cons: The wipers on the car didn’t work, it was awful. And not safe!
2.0 Mediocre1 Feb 2021
Pros: The car was good, the pickup was straightforwardCons: I was overcharged for the rental (even though I had spent a lot of effort trying to address this before the rental, to avoid any hassles), and despite repeated efforts, the issue is still not resolved
8.0 Excellent29 Jan 2021
Pros: East pickup and dropoffCons: I picked hertz because they advertized a mazda 3 but I got a Toyota carolla.
2.0 Mediocre29 Jan 2021
Pros: Staff was never rude but I didn't have a credit card with me and even though the car was pre-paid they wouldn't rent the car to me. This wasn't called out on the reservation page at all so added a lot of hassle to the trip.Cons: The company needs to make sure third party reservation sites have the full terms for car rental up on their sites.
10.0 Excellent11 Jan 2021
Pros: Easy pickup and polite helpCons: HHertz did not have a record of me having already paid Kayak for the rental. I am concerned me have been double billed because they charged me the fee again.

Cons: The car smelled bad when we received it, it was quite damages. After a moth of hacving returned it without any issues, Avis is claiming that I was responsible for the damage which I was absolutely not. I have insurance and their signed form which already proves the damage was the previous to my rental dat, but still I need to be involved in defending this claims and tenths of long and time wasting calls with them and their claims company. I will NEVER rent from Avis again

I had indicated on my Kayak search that I wanted BOS airport but I suppose I didn't look at the details to see that it was the location on Atlantic Ave. Not a huge deal but did have to get an Uber (or could have ridden the blue line) to get to the downtown location. Upon picking up the car on the 7th floor of the parking garage there was 1 woman working who we had to yell out for because nobody seemed to be around. She came from behind another vehicle and was on a personal phone call and had to tell the person on the phone that she'd "call you back because I have a customer". Not a huge deal I suppose but not the greatest of customer service that the person on the counter downstairs should have called up to the 7th floor to indicate we were coming. The car on the other hand smelled like marijuana inside. Not completely reeking of it but definitely could tell someone had smoked in it somewhat recently. I indicated this to the woman upstairs who said that she would note it and credit my account however nothing has come through indicating any credit. We were in a hurry because of the location mix up so didn't have time to potentially swap cars and the woman did not offer that up any way.

8.0 Excellent3 Apr 2021
Pros: car was new, clean. Tank was full, not just nearly full. Attendant in the lot helped me find the car. Efficicent checkout on leaving the lot. Reasonable cost for dropoff in another city.Cons: The "sticker" that the guard used to ID the car on leaving the lot was low on the windshield on the drivers side, thus partially blocking my view of cars coming from the left. I almost collided once, so this is a very serious issue. Sticker is presumably on the driver's side for the convenience of the guard, but it should be high on the windshield..

My kayak confirmation was for a car from Boston Logan Airport, but the car was actually booked in Lynn, MA so I had to cancel the reservation and rebook directly with the rental car company.

2.0 Mediocre30 Aug 2020
Cons: We had a family Medical Emergency (father had to be airlifted from Marthas Vineyard Hospital to Boston for emergency surgery) and had to drop off our rental car at Oak Bluffs Marthas Vineyard instead of Hyanis Port. Called Corporate and they still charged me $500+ for the changed location fee. Unexceptable in my book to charge this fee for a family emergency...... Brian Boyt 310-308-0755

8.0 Excellent5 Jan 2021
Pros: easy pick up/drop off. nice people. very clean car.Cons: very clear summary/signage detailing covid-related precautions taken by thrifty should be provided to customers immediately upon entry. how did they sanitize my car? heck, did they sanitize my car? i shouldn't have to ask. also, a bit expensive, though more a function of region than anything, i suppose. overall, a positive experience.

Cons: My trip was cancelled due to Covid and I was unable to either change dates or cancel so I lost my money. I will avoid using this site for future bookings. Dianne Ryan
8.0 Excellent26 Oct 2020
Cons: The toll package is crazy, we paid $1 to get out of Massachusetts, coming back in we hit that toll with no cash, but it’s only 1.50 it’s a really bad place to have a toll and it should just be included! Especially since there is a toll receiver on the car.
2.0 Mediocre27 Sep 2020
Cons: The airline canceled our flights, we couldn't use the car but were charged anyway.
6.8 Good12 Sep 2020
Pros: Staff were lovely but Kayak said it was $144 when it was $557. They missold me insurance for $11 a day that turned out to be invalid on Thrifty’s cars. It was a criminal transaction all around.Cons: Be honest for god’s same you criminals. Everything was sold incorrectly from the day rate of rental to the insurance to the type of car. I was flabbergasted at your behaviour.
2.0 Mediocre7 Sep 2020
Cons: Had to cancel my reservation 2 Months ago due to a wedding cancellation because of Covid. Thrifty told me that I can submit an appeal to get my money back but would not be told the outcome until after my reservation date. Ridiculous!

Pros: The car was good.Cons: The car had a strong smell of tabaco or smoke. I call to complained and they asked me to fill a form online which it took me a while to find on my phone. Then they said they contact me about the issue and never did. Also I asked about getting the ez-pass at the beginning of the rental and it was never given to me or explained how it works. Horrible service and nasty car smell.

Pros: The process of renting the car itself was good.

The seats in our Subaru were terribly uncomfortable but that is a subaru problem.

7.2 Good10 Sep 2020
Pros: Upgraded from compact car to a Mitsubishi Outlander, which was the only positive of our experience.Cons: 20+ minute wait in line at Boston Logan, on top of 40+ minutes just for the associate to help us?!!! Their name tag said they’d been there for 15 years, but they were slow as molasses and had no care for us and did not make me feel valued. There were no Payless reps at their airport (what?!!!), so a random other person had to try and come help. When we FINALLY got our car over an hour later, we drove it 2 miles only to have an emergency notification come on saying “Pull over safely. Car will stop soon” WTF?! So we drove back, got back in line and waited 40+ minutes to be helped by another terrible associate who didn’t care about us. Once we finally got our second car, it was 2+ hours later and no one even apologized for the inconvenience. I already called customer service, and they said “oh okay we will get back to you in a minimum of 5 days”
2.4 Mediocre17 Aug 2020

2.8 Mediocre10 Aug 2020
Pros: The price was the only positive thing about this rental experience.Cons: The car reeked of cigarettes and the seats had been spilled on with some sort of dark liquid. It took forever to get a customer service rep on the phone, I filed a complaint, and all I received in response was an e-mail saying they were sorry they had disappointed me.
5.2 Okay18 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was fine and gave me an upgrade to a larger vehicle at the same rate, which was nice.Cons: There were literally more than $84 in after-booking fees above and beyond the advertised total price, before including the optional insurance and toll pass -- in the end I paid three times the advertised price. Customer service was also very slow, not that I begrudge the employees there, just they were very understaffed. The car smelled like cigarette smoke that had been poorly covered up with cologne.

Pros: Unfortunately, there was no chance for me to like anything as E-Z did not have my reservation on file. I spent over an hour at the counter looking to see if the order was wrongfully placed for a different day, if it was set for a different pickup location, or if the rental company had been changed (I individually checked with Alamo, Advantage, Hertz, Enterprise, and more) to unfortunately find out there no company had my reservation on file. By the time the entire ordeal was done, and the option was to reserve a new car, we were so late that we decided to completely change plans and not rent a car for the day. This put extreme stress on myself with family visiting town and I am incredibly frustrated with this experience. Please contact me at mpbrooks16@gmail.com or (708) 212-6034 to advise next steps - I kindly ask to be refunded for both the car rental and the insurance policy as neither were used.

Cons: The signage for the desk was difficult to find, the car exterior was dirty including windows and mirrors. The gas wasn t full and was low about 100 miles, I filled it a day later and drove that far before gauge returned to the point where I picked it up
4.8 Okay13 Dec 2019
Pros: Staff at counter was good, requested a vehicle with "in" state tags. Was told the vehicle had "Massachusetts tags".... it did not, then the gentleman in garage fought with me when I got to the vehicle with "Virginia tags!!!"..... He was very rude and he had 6 vehicles of same model with "Massachusetts tags" but wouldn't let me switch!!!! Ridiculous.....Cons: Using another rental company bc upon returning the vehicle I couldnt find anyone to check me out???? So I proceeded to the rental counter and NO ONE there either at 730am in the morning, it's been a few days and yet to recieve my receipt..... Last time I will use a second rate rental company, I travel for a living and if your a businessman dont use EZ car rentals!!!!
4.8 Okay26 Oct 2019

Returning the car was super simple.

Top tips for hiring a car in Boston

  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.
