10.0 ExcellentApr 29 2017
Great experienceI had never heard of Driving Force before, but my fiancé had smashed our car & I needed to find us something to rent quickly after the insurance cut off our rental car. The service was a great price, especially for my last minute booking, the car was clean & new and the employees were polite & friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their company.The only negative part of the experience was that there was a tiny piece of glass on the floor in the back seat that hadn't been noticed before it was given to me. Other than that, the car had clearly just been detailed and cleaned very well.

The staff let us pick up the car even though they closed at 1:00 pm and we showed up at 1:02 pm.We didn't get the contract for the car - which was needed when we dropped it off at the airport.

Refused to rent to me because I didn't live in the same townI reserved a car. I had all the money available. I was willing to pay the deposit and drop it off exactly intact with all the necessary paperwork/information. This location refused to rent me a car because I didn't live in Guelph. If I lived in Guelph, why would I need to rent a car? Wouldn't it make sense to rent a car to LEAVE the town that you are capable of moving around in? I think that the representative available that day was discriminating against my appearance upon pickup. I was in the same office in person the day before to ensure that my paperwork would be approved. I took all the necessary steps to get out of an emergency situation and relied on this service. Instead, I was approved for a Uhaul, and even though I had to pay way more than my available budget to rent he Uhaul vehicle, they were reliable and available. The uhaul representative did EVERYTHING in their power to make sure that the vehicle was available. This Enterprise location refused to rent to me based on not living in the area, but if I was to truly look at the situation from my perspective, their representative judged me based on my appearance and severely effected my current situation . The company as a whole was represented by a situation such as this and I wouldn't hold my breath on trying for another rental.The customer service and reliability. After doing everything in my power to make sure I had the money and paperwork available, I was still turned away.

Enterprise in Guelph on Woodlawn - great!The service by Addison and every team member I came in contact with was great. Very courteous and a pleasure to deal with. There was a very positive vibe in the office and all customers seemed to be getting great service.There was not anything that I didn't like or felt needed improving with my experience. It was all great.

I booked through Kayak - the only option that was available was to pickup at the small local airport. There were no rates or car options given for the intown Avis locations. At the time of pickup in the morning, there was no one at the rental desk . After several calls, I was told that the airport rental desk was only open after 3pm and to come into the nearest intown location and my reservation would be handled intown. This caused a huge delay in that I had gone to the airport and now had to come back into town to get the car.

My flight arrived at 11 pm and the kiosk was still open and the gentleman was efficient and helpful.
4.4 OkayOct 24 2019
The drop off was easyI feel that the booking online wasn’t clear. I thought the price I paid online was great, but when I showed up at the site, the insurance wasn’t included. (I thought I had paid for that online) There were people behind me and I didn’t have time then to check out other options, so I had to pay the current price they had for insurance, which pretty much doubled my price of the rental. So I wasn’t too pleased when I showed up to pick up the car and discovered my car rental cost pretty much doubled for the 5 days that I rented the car :(
5.6 OkayJun 12 2019
Easy to deal with and someone available on the desk late at nightDidn't have the car available that we booked so upgraded to a larger car which will use a lot more fuel, not very impressed with the cleanliness of the car, quite dirty outside and very dirty inside.
4.0 OkaySep 3 2018
poor service, price was not as quotedWe had a Chevy Impala. It was a nice drivePrice was not what we were quoted - we changed pickup locations and the price jumped from $199CDN for three days to $288CDN for three days, but we were not informed of this until we were nearly finished with check in. This is an egregious oversight. Also, windows were dirty inside (foot prints on the passenger side windshield...). Pickup took a long time as they were quite busy with only two people working the counter. Very unhappy with all of the above, especially the attitude of the counter clerk when I questioned the price. He pointed to the computer screen and said this is what the contract says. I pointed to my printout and said this is what my contract says. Eventually we gave in because we needed transportation and we had a wedding to get to. We feel cheated.
