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.

    Avoid Orlando Thrifty Car Rental at all costs!! I booked a week long rental for my wife for $125. When she arrived close to midnight, she explicitly said that she wanted to decline all options but the agent rushed her through the rental and never removed the options. She questioned why the estimate was now close to $300 and was told that this was just a credit card authorization and would not be a charge. When she reached the car, she noticed that it absolutely reeked of smoke (despite a smoke free guarantee). When she returned the car (which she filled up just before arriving at the airport), she was charged $306, which included a fuel penalty for not return the car on a full tank. They never responded to my email inquiries and were rude and dismissive on the phone. This is not an honest operation. There are much better car rental options.

    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.
