You should have cars first then run the company. We booked 2 times within 2 weeks firstly they booked the car for us then the next day when we were ready to pickup the car they are informing us that they don't have cars right now , we have to have another 2-3 days. Such a poor management of staff, service and specially cars. Get the cats first so people can book when they urgently need it.

When we tried to pick up our rental car in Banff, we were told that the order had been cancelled, but WE had not cancelled it! Tyler was a very kind and helpful employee who came through for us the next day with a rental car. We are most thankful to Tyler for his efforts! He is definitely an employee to be praised!

Pros:

Well I haven't seen anybody I just dropped the car. The office was closed, but the cariboo lodge reception was open.

Cons:

The underground car park is a bit narrow. It's difficult to park, therefore it's quite scary with a rental car.

Pros:

It took a while to get used to the car's buttons but it was a very good and clean car. The second person I spoke to who brought the car keys to the railroad station was very helpful and clear on return instructions. The return went very smoothly.

Cons:

The 1st person I spoke to on ten (10) calls repeatedly gave me wrong directions for RR station pickup. I said repeatedly that I had was having trouble with phone reception but he kept saying "Call me when you get there." Also they didn't answer phones between 11:30am & 1pm on pick up or return days.

Pros:

Price beat the competition.

Cons:

The full size I reserved due to hip replacement was not available so they shoehorned me into a low slung Mustang. The pickup location is in a mall with no street number on the building nor marquee placard outside...hard to find. I trusted the agent to point out the dings/damage to the dirty car and he overlooked the chip in the windshield...though when I found him after 20 minutes upon return he verbally agreed it had been present at pickup.

Pros:

i got an upgrade on the car when I arrived

Cons:

Their credit card machine was down... so they took an imprint of my card, left my yellow carbon copy in the car and when i called to make sure they destroyed it, no one answered, have yet to get a call back. Also left a small gift from a local giftshop in the back (just a magnet, touristy stuff, and have yet to hear back from the rental car place)... did not have enough people working for such a touristy place.
