Thrifty is a value-oriented car rental company that has a significant presence both in the airport and local car rental markets, a marked difference from many of its major competitors who focus almost exclusively on the airport market. In the U.S., approximately 80% of its business is focused on the airport market and 20% in the local market.
- Car Rental Automobile Rental Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Thrifty offers GPS-enabled navigation via the Garmin® nuvi at most popular locations in the U.S. and Canada. The unit features an easy-to-use color touch screen with detailed street data including nearly six million points of interest. With turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions, the Garmin® nuvi features the ability to display text directions in 17 different languages and spoken directions in eleven, including English, Spanish, French, German and Italian. Pass24®/Rent A Toll Thrifty offers the Pass24 pre-paid toll product in most major markets. The service is available for a daily or weekly charge and includes all incurred toll charges. Pass24 reads registered license plates and utilizes video technology that captures images of the car as it passes through participating toll facilities. Thrifty Airport Parking Facilities In addition to car rental, Thrifty provides airport parking with 10,000 parking spaces at 13 Thrifty locations across the U.S. Parking operations can be found in a number of major metropolitan cities such as Chicago, Dallas (Love Field), Seattle and Orlando, FL. "Green" Vehicles While Thrifty Car Rental does have a few hybrid vehicles available in its fleet - primarily Toyota Prius and Chrysler "bio-fuel" vehicles - they are in short supply because the retail demand for hybrids is so high among consumers. In spite of availability issues, 75% of Thrifty's total fleet has a miles-per-gallon of 26 mpg or better. As time goes by, Thrifty will likely have more hybrid vehicles in its fleet as supply increases.

I had my car in the shop twice and both times I tried to schedule a rental from Thrifty in Mountain Home. Both times they did not have vehicles available even though the lot was full. It made no sense not to rent a vehicle that had little chance of being sold for just two days. Poor management.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
