Thrifty – with their hours too

You wanna rent a car? Want to get a deal? Then rent at Thrifty Rental Cars at the MCI Verizon Center.

Now if you want to know their office hours, good luck. You’ll not find that on a website. If you call, they’ll tell you when they close that day. But be warned. When they say 6pm sharp, they mean it.

Yesterday, trying to return a rental, I called ahead to ask them to wait 5 minutes. No dice. When I arrived, by 6:02pm on their clock, they were gone.

Thrifty, in customer service as well as price.

    Isn’t that standard for most car rental companies, that don’t happen to have an airport location?

    Why exactly are you fucking around with full fledged rental cars when you have both Zipcar and Flexcar to choose from? Ya know what – this deserves a post of its own.

    Renting ZipCar or FlexCar for three days straight? Not as cheap as Thrifty, by far. Both are around $60 per day, when Thrifty is $33 (including tax).
