The hotel is located in a small room hidden inside a hotel, it took me a long time to find because there is no information inside or outside the hotel. After i hunt and find the person, i was forced to pay a package that cost me twice the amount and when i said i would cancel, i was informed that i would lose the reservation amount. At no time was i informed about the miles limits, to my understanding the mileage was free and even so it was triggered by "car 4 less" in 500 dollars besides the rental costs. I am very unhappy with this situation and i will activate my lawyer. The embarrassment is great.
Was a really good experiences
Good and fast service!.
There was no one to provide information about the car rental agency by the time we arrived to the airport. We had to go back to the airport to pick p the car next day and it took us an average of 3 hours to get the car. The customer service in the car agency mentioned that despegar didn't send some kind of release form and it took a very long time (about an hour and a half) to have a solution. It was very hard to get in hold with someone from despegar. The car was in very bad shape, all messed up with terrible tires. i needed an additional car for the following days and i went directly to hertz.

  • Things to keep in mind

    Thrifty’s clients must be at least 21 years old, though in some countries the minimum age is 25. We recommend you check the minimum age required for the country you’re planning to visit.

  • Handy Rules

    As of January 2011, Thrifty introduced a policy that prohibits smoking in its cars. If you notice tobacco smell when you rent a car, notify the company as soon as you notice it, to avoid inconveniences when you return the car.

  • Extra services

    If you need an infant seat, make sure to request it when booking your car. The company offers all the equipment you need to travel with children, though you can use your own car seat if you prefer.

  • Useful information

    When booking a car abroad, make sure to check the policies and terms of use Thrifty follows in that specific country. You should also check whether the coverage provided by your travel insurance company is extended to your car rental.
