When I arrived to pick up the car I was forced to wait over an hour for a car to be available. The entire waiting area at Thrifty/Hertz was packed with people sitting around waiting for their cars, as though it was a surprise that people showed up for their reservations. All of the other rental car counters were generally empty. Those companies moved their customers in and out. So it wasn’t just a busy day — those other companies were there in the same conditions.Reviewed Jul 3 2024

Friendly staff, trying to give the best service, responsive to our requests, ... When one less trained colleague made a mistake, another made the necessary changes before closing the bill.Reviewed Mar 17 2024

Pros:Helpful staff and got the car I want even when it was not available thru Thrifty (took me to Hertz).Cons:Car was not available (fixed by taking me to Hertz) and then there were two counters to wait at for Hertz. Why not do everything at one counter? Or even better do it online and skip the counter.Reviewed Feb 18 2019

Nice cars and prices, poor servicePros:Car was nice and clean and rental price was affordable.Cons:Waited in line for 30+ minutes to pick up our car in the morning. Also was not informed about key dropoff when we returned the vehicle and all the parking spots were full for Thrifty so we had to track down a parking lot attendant and get info from him (where can we park the car? where do we drop off the keys?).Reviewed Sep 11 2017

Top tips for renting a car from Thrifty in Montreal

  • Individuals that opt to book Thrifty car rentals in Montreal have a few different types of vehicle models to choose from, all of which suit the area well. If you are planning on visiting the region during the winter months, or you will be travelling in a group, it is often convenient to rent a larger vehicle, like an SUV or van. Larger vehicles such as these will give you additional space for passengers and luggage, while also making it easier to drive through rain or snow.

If you decide to instead pay for your rental ahead of time, you can modify or cancel it at any point, up to 48h before you have scheduled to pick up the vehicle.
  • When you make the decision to book Thrifty car rentals in Montreal, you can sign up for the company’s rewards program, which is known as the ​​Blue Chip Rewards Points Program.
