Pros:

They did not have an economy car available despite the fact that I had booked economy.

Cons:

The car was dirty. The attendant made an excuse to say she tried to clean up the car but in fact she did nothing. There was dirt in the trunk and around the hinges of the trunk door.

Pros:

The staff at pick-up was super friendly.

Cons:

The interior of the car could have been cleaner. The drop-off experience could have been WAY better. They might be able to update their Computer System - 1 -easy access for local locations to change drop-off if that's what the customer is requesting, and 2 - have the ability to convert currency!

Nov 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Getting to the rental agency and eventually to the vehicle was very convenient.

Cons:

Agent was slightly confused about the fact that it was a one-way rental. After a long drive, the budget drop-off office had no bathrooms available, apparently, and I had to walk across four lanes of rush-hour traffic in the snow WITH LUGGAGE to use a bathroom at a coffee shop across the street! The agent there was aware of my obvious discomfort (made a comment to me about such) but didn't offer to hold my bags or allow me to use the staff bathroom even though I was a paying customer.

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Noone was there when I dropped the car off. I found papertowel (used) in the car. Not acceptable at all given this is a Covid pandemic. I was told after I had booked the car that Costco members get a discount. The agents never really tell you about any features or benefits. When I showed up the woman was not there so I had to wait for her.

When someone rents a GPS it should have instructions with it or the operation be explained. I could not get sound out of it and old address kept coming up. It was night time rain and it seems all the City is in Construction, and the GPS does not work very dangerous.

Pros:

The orginal price was 209$ and they end up charging 349$. Also, on the site, it's state 500$ deposit, and once on site, they want 1500$ deposit.

Price is a scam. Make sure of what the customer will pay. Really a scam !

KAYAK

Pros:

I scheduled my pick up at 8:00 since I was on a tight scheduled. John was helpful showed me the vehicle and did the walk-around with me. They also dropped me off at work which was fantastic.

Cons:

First off the $1500 hold is a bit excessive. The other thing is the scam with the unlimited mileage, don't advertise unlimited mileage if that is not the case knowing very well that once we have made the arrangements, the customer is at your mercy.

They advertised Unlimited Mileage but only had 300 kms per day. I had to argue to get more kms included which was ridiculous. Pickup was slow and drop-off as well they took their sweet time, so it was a slow process both times.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

They advertised "unlimited" mileage, which was not true. They didn't save a car that I have reserved. They told me that I cannot switch the name of renter to charge additional driver. They increased the amount of additional charge of a driver per day without approval. They offered me a car with full of scratches and missed two spots of damages if I didn't point out. I never rent a car from them again

Pros:

Pickup and dropoff was easy and smooth. The shuttle from the airport was excellent and staff was very friendly and helpful.the vehicle was next to new and very clean.

Cons:

I reserved a compact but none were available so I was given a jeep wrangler. The vehicle itself was next to new and very clean but was uncomfortable and was a beast on gas. I spent almost as much on gas for the 3 days I had it as I did for the rental. Would like if they had more compact cars available

These guys are extremely flexible. I got stuck at the border twice and both times they allowed me to return the car 4-6 hours late, without any extra charge. Once the car was not clean and had smoke smell so an hour was wasted at pick up. Without any demand from my side they gave me a refund of 25 CAD to make up. The guy Vivek, is extremely friendly and accomodating. The downside of my experience is that I am still waiting for the refund of 500 CAD a month later, despite several reminders.

Everything was great, our family really enjoys the car we have rent it. Ford Escape hybrid is the way to go when you are travelling. It only cost us less than $200 of gas by to travel 11 days around the east coast of Canada.

Cons:

Despite booking an intermediate on Kayak, the Avis received my booking as a compact. Thankfully, Avis found an intermediate car for me at a nearby location for no extra charge, which I appreciated. Seems like a miscommunication between the Kayak and Avis systems.

Cons:

We received quite a larger vehicle than booked as the type of vehicle we had booked was not available so I think the vehicle should have been the correct size. Also, the vehicle had Florida license plates and being in Canada and driving, because of the travel restrictions and people’s heightened stress, we didn’t feel comfortable driving in Canada with the Florida plates under Covid.

After streetparking my mirror had been flopped back. Sure enough-two dents in the door - I had been side swiped. I reported to insurance and Avis Ottawa who were very calm and supportive. Returning the car, an employee immediately told me that it was old damage. Honest and clear service.

The rental place was supposed to open at 8 A.M. (as was indicated on their own front door), which was when my pickup was arranged for. I got there at 8:05 A.M. and waited until 8:25 A.M. until I had to find other arrangements to get to my appointment because no one showed up.

Ottawa pick up was fine. Drop off in Louisville was a joke. They had taped the key box up with duct tape and put a cryptic note that said that since people were stealing their cars, you couldn't leave you key in a drop box...you had to come back the next day. We had our car in airport long term parking and lived 120 miles from this location...so there is no way we were coming back. I ended up leaving the vehicle there and giving the keys to an Avis employee at the airport...a mile away.

The vehicle was a year-old, high end Ford Escape SUV. Nice! However, the vehicle had not been cleaned when I went to pick it up at the agreed time, so I had to wait 30 extra minutes in their offices while they cleaned it. Secondly, the vehicle did not have snow tires. It was a dangerous trip. Given the winds, ice, and blowing snow, I was literally worried for some sections of the trip that we would have an accident and possibly die. Thirdly, one or more of the tires was not balanced. We had an 1100 km drive, round trip, and it was AWFUL the whole time, as the whole vehicle shuddered above 80 km/h. Going through Toronto, where the traffic was moving at 120+, the seats and all our luggage were shaking, and our voices were affected as we spoke -- that helicopter pilot sound. It was a long and extremely uncomfortable trip. It gave me a very long time to consider the negative reviews I would leave when I got home. This is one of them.

This company is simply not interested in renting cars to people who have money. From the se one I arrived until the second I left , the agent at the counter could not have been any more rude. Not sure if it’s the way I look ( 100% it is ) but for the life of of me I could not get him to give me the car I choose wanted and paid for! It’s was insane, I drive an Audi and wanted something comparable, so I choose premium class , I called ahead and everything was ready until I arrived. This man looked like I was bothering him and then greeted me by saying “ what” ! I politely gave him my name and said we spoke earlier I believe, he said nope not me ! Turns out that all the other 30 vehicles were unavailable and had reservations, the only car he had was a Corolla, and it might not be clean if that was ok, it was all mine! For 25 mins this man did everything he could think up of to make sure that I only got the Corolla. I understood who he was and what he was doing , and I have zero time for that kind of garbage , so I canceled politely and left. Or so he though, took less then 10 mins for someone to walk up and within 5 mins off they went in the bmw ! It’s 2021, last time I checked , my money is just the same as other peoples money. Never again AVIS YOW

The rules at Avis are far too rigid. As a foreign traveller it seemed their policies were set for local drivers only. When I didn’t have the kind of card they accept (German card) it wasn’t possible to use my companions Canadian card as payment as she didn’t have a drivers license. It also took an incredibly long time to process the booking (45 minutes in all) when we had already made the reservation and provided all of our information online. I would not go with Avis again.

Truly a terrible experience in both the pick-up and drop-off of the vehicle. The vehicle had been booked weeks in advance and had been set to be picked up at a location that would be open after our flight had landed in Ottawa; the hours on the website and booking site both indicated they would be open upon our arrival. Upon landing we arrived at the Avis location and saw that there was a notice on the door saying that effective immediately their hours had changed. They were closed. The number on the door was for the inside so that was of no use to us. We called Avis (impossible to get through) and they said that our rental is cancelled and that we should have called. All Avis representatives could not comprehend that one cannot call on an airplane saying that we are on our way (flight delayed from 1500-1600 arrival). After numerous phone calls with Avis and call drops (ridiculous wait times leading to call dropping on their end), I spoke with someone the next morning who accused me of not being reliable, and a poor customer. That would be a nice conversation to hear on their recording. He also said that they canceled our reservation and should have shown up… After dealing with that I called the original Avis dealer as they should be open with their new hours (0730), no one would pick up until (0805). The rep said he can see what he can do but that we should have showed up the day previously or called from the air (??). He said he would call us back. He called back and said he could give us a rental. The rental price was not discounted and charged us the extra day. He was also quite accusatory as well. The drop off location no one was on site when we went to drop off the vehicle (1100), so we called the number and he arrived 15 minutes later. When we went to ask for some leniency with pricing because of the issues he said he can’t do anything so just figure it out later. Horrible customer service on all fronts. Would advise to use a different company. Would like to be contacted regarding this issue.

Top tips for renting a car in Ottawa

  • Canada’s capital is an evergreen city that is overflowing with spectacular parks and gardens. Ottawa is located along the Ottawa River and is connected to the Rideau Canal, providing extensive opportunities to get outside and enjoy the wonders of nature. Renting a car will give you unrivaled access to the glorious hiking trails of Gatineau Park while also allowing the time to take in the significant cultural arts attractions, such as the National Gallery and Canadian Museum of History. If you are planning to attend an Ottawa Senators ice hockey match, renting a car is the best option since Canadian Tire Center is more than 25 km (15 miles) from the downtown district.
  • Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport (YOW) is located approximately 11 km (7 miles) from downtown and you will be able to arrive in just over 20 minutes of driving. Rental companies Alamo, Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise have their counters located on Level 1 of the parking facility, directly across from the baggage claim area.
  • Since the expanse of parklands and outdoor activities lends Ottawa to be an optimal location for bike riding, so be vigilant while driving and remember to check blind spots regularly. Turning right at a red light is legal in Ottawa unless otherwise indicated by signage; however, always remember to stop at the intersection and ensure the road is clear.
  • Ottawa and the surrounding areas of Ontario are well known for the heavy amounts of snowfall they often get during the winter. If you are planning to travel during this time of the year you will witness some beautiful frozen lakes and scenery; however, be extra cautious while driving. It is important to regularly check weather reports which will provide information on road conditions and safety. When driving on icy roads, remember to reduce speeds and allow more braking time and space than you would in normal conditions.
