Thrifty Car Rental SCAM

Cons:LIED about the rates & pushed to rent a larger car SCAM!!!!!

I flew into Orlando Airport to rent a car, so I could attend my Nephew's Wedding. Online the rate for two days was $30.00 (INCLUDING THE TAXES) & unlimited mileage. So I reserved the car. When we arrived at the Airport Thrifty car rental counter, the lady did EVERYTHING she could to talk us into an upgrade...midsized car....which we did not want!! We only needed a small car to shuttle us from our hotel to the nearby wedding. Then she finally said okay we will go with the economy car...give me your credit card. I looked and all the sudden my promised rate of $30.00 became $40.00!! Sure it was only $10.00 more than my reserved amount, but why couldn't they be truthful and honor the original reservation amount???? So I canceled and went to L & M rental & they were awesome!! They were very close to the $30.00 amount promised by Thrifty with no gimmicks & promotions or pushy sales people. I should have paid more attention to MANY NEGATIVE reviews given to THRIFTY online!!!
