Rented a suburban, they left us with a mini van that wasn't clean, didn't have enough room, and was overall insufficient for our needs. Price went up at check out and won't be using them again.

Contacted by Enterprise that despite my confirmed reservation that they did not have any cars. Told me they would put me at top of their list and never contacted me of availability.

Friendly StaffI thought Enterprise picked you up / dropped you off but neither my pickup, nor drop off locations provided that service.

Easy renting it @ the airport, friendly staffThe walk to & from the terminal. Also no one to show me different features such as turning off & on wipers, how to work the sun roof, didn't know there was a lever in the car to release the fuel door. Twice the vehicle I wanted wasn't there.

Canceled within 24h but only received part of the payment back. When you reach out to them, they charge you extra to speak to an adviser. Would not use them again.

Vehicle was clean, tank was full. Not the size of vehicle ordered…received something much larger…a gas guzzler. There were still the size of vehicle i ordered sitting in the rental lot.

Charged $50 for cancelling within 48 hours and did not inform of this policy in advance. I searched for a policy before cancelling and could not find anything. They then refused to refund after complaining.

The Pacifica suited our needs. I appreciated the inspection photos sent to me pre-trip. The cost was a bit high. Friendly service at the counter.

3.9 MediocreOct 10 2021
Although it was the cheapest price - the service was very poor. When I rented - I was just pointed in the general direction of the parking lot and told what slot it was in! Really? It is a big lot & it was raining and I have never been to Kelowna before! I realize staff is in short supply but I actually worked for Hertz many many years ago and know how it is supposed to work! Please improve your service!!

A decent car (Honda Civic) in excellent clean condition. Good value for money. Friendly staff called a couple of times prior to pickup date to ensure all was completed and correct. Rental went smoothly.
10.0 ExcellentDec 2 2018
Overall great experience!For me, it was also handy to have a city (vs airport) location.I didn't appreciate that winter tires are considered an upsell. It wasn't relevant for my trip but soon when there is snow, winter tires are practically mandatory for out-of-town driving.

Friendly staff and quick service.
10.0 ExcellentAug 1 2018
Great customer service!Our flight was delayed and we were going to arrive after the rental office had closed so I called ahead and two representatives stayed late to make sure we got our rental. My wife and two young children waited back at the airport and it worked out very well. Thank you for the extra service! We highly recommend the Driving Force. The Keith family

The logistics of the pick up turned out to be perfect, but we’re not well explained in the reservation materials, so I had to do a little detective work. Also the local brand name of Aligo should have been included in the reservation, as the Ace name isn’t well known in Kelowna.

The car rental had a maintenance please see a dealer. The whole time I drove the car. I phoned budget and told them, they told me it only has 8 thousand and something Kms, so it will be fine, and I didn’t like there answer.
6.4 GoodOct 30 2020
Clean car and smooth pick-up process.Following drop off, someone from Budget called to say they had found a nik in the window and tried to hold me responsible. At no point did I hear anything while driving. Moreover, they should have checked the car upon return and brought it to my attention then.

Pickup was a breeze. Signage was difficult to follow when returning but we got it figured out eventually. Car had a terrible shake at Hwy speed. Hope they get it fixed. We notified them when we noticed and they felt it may be snow in the wheels. It was 10 deg C.

The older gentlemen that work the shuttles were very kind and friendly. That is where the positive experience ends.Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.

Top tips for renting a car in Kelowna

  • Canada simply is a nation built with cars in mind, and Kelowna is no exception. As such, it is highly recommended that visitors rent a car in Kelowna, especially if they plan to take in the area’s beautiful scenery. Many of the most majestic spots are only accessible via tours or by car, such as Knox Mountain Park and Myra Canyon Park.
  • Can’t wait to begin your trip to Kelowna? For travelers with flights landing at Kelowna International Airport, the airport’s rental car counters can be found in the main terminal building by the arrivals area.
  • The mountains neighboring Kelowna sure are picturesque, but the weather up there can turn suddenly. Drivers should be cautious when going through any of the passes and should check the weather beforehand. In the case of rain or snow, make sure to drive extra carefully and even consider driving below the speed limit if you do not feel confident navigating the steep mountain roads.
  • Fortunately for visitors to Kelowna, there isn’t much congestion or traffic to worry about in the city. However, there is still a spot of rush hour traffic during the work week. In general, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to start around 6:30 a.m. and to finish up around 9:00 a.m. In the afternoon, the congestion picks up again at around 4:00 p.m. and calms down at around 6:00 p.m. As for congested roads in Kelowna, BC-97 is one of the central routes that backs up during rush hour, so drivers should steer clear of it if they can.
