6.4 GoodJul 29 2020
Cons: Zero customer service from the drop off location at YYC Rude, unhelpful and disrespectful Never again
10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2019
Pros: Drop off difficult to find in the dark after hours as small office
6.0 GoodSep 13 2019
Pros: The staff was helpful, basically just completed the reservation process.Cons: The wait time was too long, 1 hour to be exact. There were not enough agents to assist customers who had reservations. And more importantly, there was not an apology or explanation for the reason. People are eager to forgive if given the opportunity but only more upset if not.
9.6 ExcellentSep 1 2019
Pros: Our rate was awsome compared to others! Car was just what we needed and was available.
10.0 ExcellentAug 25 2019
Cons: The instructions for drop at different location were not clear and had to call main number to have me walked through them. E.g. me rental was to 6:00 but learned that the office was closed. Difficulty understanding the person explaining the procedure was a challenge. All in all not seamless.
9.2 ExcellentJun 3 2019
Pros: Clean and new car, friendly staff, easy pick up and drop offCons: Underage fee was very high for being 24
8.0 ExcellentMay 28 2019
Pros: Car was clean, and ran greatCons: I reserved a Standard, at pick up they tried to give me an economy. Luckily I had the paper that said what kind of car I rented. With some hesitation they gave me a free upgrade, but then tried to sell me allot of coverages I did not need. I turned them all down, but clerk was not happy.
7.2 GoodFeb 26 2019
Pros: Car was clean and the drop off was relatively simpleCons: Pick up took forever even though we had pre booked, needed no gps, extra insurance, car seat for my 4 month old or anything. Should have been much simpler.
6.0 GoodFeb 25 2019
Pros: drop off was easy and staff friendlyCons: I paid for a full size car and had a tiny car that my elderly father could barely get in and out of.
8.0 ExcellentAug 20 2018
Did not even come close to quoted pricePros: Vehicle was in good working condition and cleanCons: We were quoted $599 CAD in Calgary and charged $815 CAD when dropped off in Edmonton..and we dropped off the car a day early with a full tank of gas.

2.4 MediocreFeb 18 2020
Pros: Quick serviceCons: Didn't have the promised car
5.2 OkayOct 20 2019
Pros: Although the staff is friendly, I felt like they rushed me and try to upsell me at every turn. It was annoying.Cons: The windshield wipers we're old and in need of replacement. There were four used Tim Hortons coffee cups in the backseat which were obviously missed by the cleaning staff. That Andy filed on additional charges made for a bit of a frustrating car rental experience.
7.2 GoodJul 21 2019
Cons: The reception desk people at the Calgary airport were not very customer service minded. No smiles, no nice greeting, substandard customer service. I was told I had to wait half hour for my car despite the fact my reservation was confirmed weeks ahead of my arrival date. Car was not properly cleaned.
3.2 MediocreMay 21 2019
Cons: Why are you offering cars to business people that are covered with hail damage??? And have mold inside? Sales person's response: I'm sorry you had this experience.
2.0 MediocreApr 2 2019
Cons: The extra charges turned this into an experience that was beyond belief
9.2 ExcellentMar 22 2019
Pros: Staff was only trying to yodel and not all that friendly.Cons: Be more upfront on what is included and not included and why you are getting. Especially when it comes to winter tires
2.0 MediocreMar 4 2019
Pros: NothingCons: By being told that the car wouldn’t be able to be picked up at the time my flight arrived. I called 3 people that told me that I could get the car then.
6.4 GoodJan 26 2019
Cons: Midsize booked was a Chevy cruise hatchback. One suitcase in the trunk one in the back seat. Was advertised as Chrysler 200. Midsized should never be a hatchback. Of course they wanted the upgrade for the size booked.
6.0 GoodDec 29 2018
Misleading salesperson and quotePros: Quick drop off.Cons: Our rental quote didn't include any of the airport fees, which add up quickly. The front desk lady that we had did not explain things like the gas option well and was actually misleading by saying there weren't any gas stations around the airport so we should take this option for our Calgary to Canmore trip. She said the gas was charged at 92c/litre but didn't mention that we pay for a full fill regardless of what we use. In the end, our quote of $110 turned into $220 which I just would've liked to know upfront.
5.6 OkayDec 10 2018
Jut dropped off "Truck" at airport so no real issues with that.Pros: Rental drop-off area was easy to find.Cons: When I made my concerns known at the Budget counter in the airport they told me my only option was to call a number as opposed to helping me on the spot. Do not expect to have much success on the phone, as opposed to being in person, to address my issues.

10.0 ExcellentApr 29 2017
Upgraded!Pros: Arrived to find our vehicle was upgraded to an SUV! Really enjoyed it!Cons: Nothing.
2.8 MediocreJul 16 2016
UnsatisfiedCons: I didn't get the vehicle I expected. The vehicle I got had a lot less storage and the had the vehicle I expected available. I was only notified the morning of pick up, and was asked to look for another company for my rental. The vehicle I received had the same amount of seating but a lot less luggage room than the vehicle I ordered. My guests had sit sit with luggage on the laps. The agent I felt with when returning the vehicle was extremely rude and argued with me about getting a receipt for returning the vehicle because it had not been entered in their system. I asked for a hand written receipt and she started shouting at me.

Pros: The vehicle was smooth ride,give all the credit on this rental to Nissan for amazing eco fuel car they build.Cons: check the Rental agreement and paper work of the rental they give to costumers who pay lots of money to prevent alot of trouble can led in
9.2 ExcellentAug 26 2018
Drop OffPros: Reasonable gas return rate of $1.89Cons: No gas station close to the airport and was forced to fill upon return at NATIONAL. No fault of the rental company but, an inconvenience and added cost none the less.
10.0 ExcellentJul 26 2018
Pros: Customer service was superior and in and out was quick. The vehicle was what was advertised. Great price!Cons: Nothing.
8.0 ExcellentJul 1 2017
Great price watch out for feesPros: Car was $200 for a week. And they gave us a slight upgrade with gps.Cons: When I went to pay i was charged for roadside assistance and insurance which I was not asked to purchase which doubled the cost of the rental. I had to work with their management to take the charges off. Had I not had the time I would have had to call and fight on the phone. Be aware of those before leaving with car.

6.0 GoodJun 22 2019
Pros: Drop off staff was friendly and made the process easy.Cons: Europcar doesn’t accept insurance from USA/int’l policies, although they are valid in Canada. They cited difficulty recouping claims from int’l insurance companies. I had to purchase their insurance for $12-13/day, which increased my rental cost by 25%. This policy was not stated until I arrived.
6.0 GoodSep 15 2018
Pros: Good valueCons: Customer service could have been better. A walk through the car features, would have been helpful
8.4 ExcellentJun 23 2018
Pros: Everything was good thank you.
8.0 ExcellentMar 26 2018
Pros: Upgraded car.
6.4 GoodFeb 25 2018
Far from airport and didn’t have my vehiclePros: The price. Reserved a mini van and ended up with a Dodge Ram 4 x 4. Worked out well only because the weather was dry - all our luggage went in the bed and there was no cover. Had it been wet and sloppy roads, it would have been a disaster.Cons: Was 15 min drive from airport. By the time you wait for the shuttle it’s half hour one way. I reserved months in advance a mini van and when I got there there were none available - some “broke down”. Ya right. This happens all the time with car rentals. I’m sure they over book in order to sell out to capacity. Not sure it was worth the savings.
2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2018
There was NO CAR for me!!Pros: There was no car for me and no one bothered to let me know via text, call, email, etc!
6.4 GoodDec 29 2017
Cons: Did not have the car I booked (compact) when I arrived, only had a massive pickup truck. Also, the truck had no gas in it. Had to return the next day to swap the truck for a smaller car.
7.6 GoodDec 28 2017
Pros: Very nice, clean, comfortable, feature-packed vehicle. Handled well in the winter snow and ice. Didn't get the car I ordered, but they upgraded me at the same price.Cons: The battery was spotty and I needed to jump start it quite frequently in the cold weather.
10.0 ExcellentDec 26 2017
No problems...Pros: I got a larger vehicle than I asked for and didn't pay extra. Better deal than the 'big box' rental companies. No issues with the vehicle. Good service.
5.6 OkaySep 14 2017
Lest expensive suvPros: Price, very nice staffCons: Did not open until 730 so when I showed up at 715 to return the car expecting the shuttle to airport it wasn't available and I almost missed my flight waiting on taxi. Even though they are listed as Calgary airport they are a 15 minute ride from the passenger side. They also had trouble accepting my American car insurance even after directly talking to Progressive. I had previously confirmed I was covered by my policy. They just couldn't agree on the paperwork of it. Sounded like the progressive customer service was uninformed but still took an extra 30 minutes at pick up. Not really a negative but not what I expected.

4.0 OkayMar 27 2021
Pros: The actual car was niceCons: The car reaked of the guys cologne, it was also dirty when he gave it to us. The guy was not very friendly and when he dropped us off back at the airport, I had asked him if he could drop us near the taxi section and he dropped us off in a dead zone of the airport really far from the taxis with all our luggage and skis...
2.0 MediocreSep 13 2019
Cons: They could have provided the car for me that I had reserved. They said I would be inconvenienced but they did not have a car for me and did nothing to help me out.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2018
Great ServicePros: Safety and ComfortCons: It is a big vehicle to park
10.0 ExcellentJul 1 2018
Great staffPros: I was very hesitant to book with Ace after reading the reviews but they were half the price of other rental cars so I figured I’d try it. I was pleasantly surprised. I had to wait a bit to get my car when I arrived in Vancouver but when I did it was a brand new Jeep which was a free upgrade from what I reserved. I had no problems on the drive from Vancouver to Calgary (and all the sightseeing trips in between). When I dropped off the car the staff even gave us a ride to the hotel, saving us cab or Uber fare. Thanks!!
5.6 OkayJan 2 2018
Great price. Bad pickup experiencePros: Value.Cons: Pickup and dropoff experience. Car availability.
2.0 MediocreDec 31 2017
ACE ran out of cars!Cons: Had to wait for hours at Avis to get a car. Avis was helping us out, it was Ace's fault we had to wait.
3.6 MediocreDec 31 2017
No cars in CalgeryCons: Waited 5 hours for cars we did not order. Sent to competitor who had no cars, either. Extremely disappointing. No snow tires on Prius in snow storm. Extremely dangerous.
2.0 MediocreNov 29 2017
Unorganized and my transparent.Pros: Nothing, they just brokered it to Avis.Cons: Terrible service.
10.0 ExcellentSep 12 2017
Pros: Friendly staff. Shuttle service to the airport was a blessing!
9.6 ExcellentMar 28 2017
Pros: Ace stayed open late for us as we waited to receive our luggage. They didn't give us any grief and were very patient even though they had to stay open about and hour after they were supposed to close. The rest of the rental process was smooth.Cons: The rental car location is a bit out of the way from the airport and somewhat difficult to find.
