Pros:

Staff were exceptionally friendly, professional, customer-focused ... even made sure we got a ride home after we dropped it off.

Cons:

The computer program seemed to have a mind of it's own - but the staff person knew just how to make it cooperate - but it did make it more time consuming than it should have been.

Pros:

Very nice car, very courteous agent.

Cons:

We waited about 25 minutes in line at the Thrifty desk in the terminal, only to be told we had to catch a shuttle to an off-site location to check in. The listing should clarify whether the rental agency is the terminal desk or off-site.

Pros:

Good value. Very service. Good car.

Cons:

I made the mistake of booking at a location that wasn’t at the airport. Cost us $35 for a taxi. Due to Covid they wouldn’t pick us up. That’s lame. Shuttles run. They would have gotten 5 stars otherwise.

Cons:

Noticed after reviewing the bill that we were charged an extra $18/hour when we returned the car 2 minutes past 2 o'clock. Nothing was said about the charge during the closing process (just slipped in). Not very transparent.

Pros:

Lots of trunk space, drove nicely and pretty fast/kind pickup/drop off service.

Cons:

I didnt get the vehicle of choice but it worked for what we needed. A little more pricey then I thought it would be and some extra expenses that I had to pay were not outlined when I rented the vehicle such as paying an extra $20 per day because I am under the age of 25.

Cons:

I will be writing a letter of complaint to Budget concerning the customer service I received at pick-up in Newfoundland. The security agent told me to also complain to the airport as he said she was rude to me. I did not receive the rental. I needed to spend the remainder of the evening and the next morning to arrange a new rental. I went with Enterprise. Good customer service, lower price, better car, etc. I will NEVER rent with budget again.

The pickup was not smooth. No cars were available and they had only a large pick up truck and had to return later that evening. Took over an hour to get a vehicle (long wait) and the only saving grace was the counter staff as they were great but clearly overwhelmed with the lack of availability.

I asked for a shovel as St John’s Newfoundland has just received 20-20 cm snow. They said that they didn’t provide shovels. I had already paid $20 for four snow tires to be installed. I told the individual in charge that I had just had shovel my way out to come ask for a shovel when I realized that the car didn’t have one. We had to look for ways around to avoid windows left by plies or just uncleared streets as we had no means to dig our shelves out of trouble short of buying a shovel if we could find one Roy

Top tips for renting a car in St. John's

  • A rental car is the perfect way to explore not only St. John's, but the whole of Newfoundland, as most of its best places can't be accessed without four wheels. There are so many scenic routes to drive along that it will be hard to choose, but driving to St. Anthony on the northern tip of the island is a popular option, as you can take your time and even stay overnight in the charming towns as you make your way there.
  • All the big car rental companies can be found at St. John's International Airport (YYT), which is located less than 10 km (6.2 miles) from downtown St. John's. Car rental services are situated in the Baggage Claim area of the airport's main terminal. If you're heading there during high tourism season (May-September), you should book your car in advance.
  • The Trans-Canada Highway connects St. John's to other cities and towns around Newfoundland and, although the highway is in great condition, you will likely encounter sharp curves while driving through these hills. Always stay alert when driving on the island, as moose roam around freely and sometimes cause accidents. Stop the car and wait for the animals to fully disappear if you bump into them.
  • Although traffic is quite tame when compared to other big Canadian cities, rush hour traffic (between 7 and 9 a.m. and 4 to 6:30 p.m.) can affect certain areas of St. John's, particularly Parkway, which is made up of three roads funneling into a single route. Most heavy construction work takes place during summer, so take that into consideration in case you have to be somewhere by a specific time.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in St. John's for $46 or less
  • Book your rental car in St. John's at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in St. John's are around 30% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Supplier choice rental cars in St. John's are around -11% cheaper than other car types, on average
