Pick up location has been moved due to branch been closed , and had to pay significant difference of money which is not the same as original booking. Asked for return but help line was not cooperative at all . Will never recommend my friends and family. In fact I will launch complaint in better bureau and so many social media.

10.0 ExcellentSep 23 2021
Had a really good experience dealing with the staff and assistant manager, he was very helpful and knowledgeable, giving me advise as to where to go, as well as the type of package I needed. The car was as you'd expect, clean, comfortable and well maintained. I highly recommend it and would definitely use them again.

I was able to change my reservation and get a minivan and I had three hours added to my reservation for no extra charge. I appreciated the flexibility with enterprise. Thank you!
1.9 HorribleAug 20 2021
Price of the car kept going up higher up as I tried to rent the car. I had to make few changes as soon as I did this car became ridiculously more expensive and these changes were for less days. I swore of all .com web sites. I will go directly to supplier in all transection.

Truly wonderful car. Really quick and helpful service.
2.0 MediocreApr 30 2022
Since we were dropping the car off after hours we were supposed to leave the keys in the box. When we got there the box was not there, and there was no note with instructions on what to do instead. We ended up having to come back in the morning to deliver the keys. Additionally, our teller did not explain the terms of the agreement, and we ended up being charged much more than needed on gas. They did upgrade our car to an SUV which was nice, but not a great experience overall.
10.0 ExcellentApr 18 2022
Pickup was perfect, drop off was rude the guy jumped into the car while my wife was still in the car still trying to get our belongings, had a bit of attitude about it when I said I wasn’t finished and that he wanted the odometer - it’s still covid…

The staff at Avis were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The car they gave me was clean, new, very comfortable, and well maintained. I would have preferred not to have a maximum daily mileage, but I know that limitation helped keep the costs of the rental down.

10.0 ExcellentSep 9 2021
Pick up and drop off were both very easy. Car was clean. I am only 5’10” but my head was touching the car roof; not a rental issue but the experience of driving the car over bumps was an issue.

2.0 MediocreApr 7 2022
When I tried to pick up a car, booking was cancelled Hertz suggested they can rent me a car at 3 times more expensive than original price I paid so I left. Initially when I realized this was USD amount I pressed cancel button but message showing I need to contact Hertz directly so I called Hertz number. Hertz automated message advised if I talk to an agent there will be 5% charge on the bill. So I decided to keep the booking since there wasn't big difference between USD and CAD amount. I got a confirmation email from priceline a day before pick up but booking was cancelled but no cancelation email was sent to me.. My exciting trip plan was ruined and I don't think I will use kayak again.

Great car, drove well, man at the counter was really nice.They didn't seem to know anything about the online booking system that I used, I ended up paying almost double because I wanted a GPS system which upgraded me to a nicer vehicle. However, I booked a Rav4 which is pretty comparable to a Chevy Esquire. I just feel like I overpaid for the upgrade.

They did not have my car although I specifically called to make sure the car was going to be there. I was on the phone with the reservations central for about an hour and they refused to talk to the office people. They sent me to Hertz (next door) for double the price, who has the same owner. SCAM !Everything

I still have not received my deposit of 1500$ back and I need my money back. They said it would take 3-7 business days and I returned the vehicle last Saturday April 30, it is now May 11 2022 and I still have not received a notice or anything regarding my deposit. The car was washed when I took it, so it made some of the scratches that were on there prior to me renting it not visible so I hope that they don’t put that on me because that is bs. I just really want my money back and don’t understand why it is taking so long, I returned it in good condition, so I do not see the problem. Although they were nice people I wish that they were faster and honest with their service.

This was the smoothest, easiest transaction we've had renting a car in our last few attempts. The staff was friendly and accommodating with picking us up from the airport and getting us back there on time to catch our flight. I would rent from here again and recommend anyone else to do the same.

The agency did not deliver the car and I am still waiting for the re found, I would like to know how to start a claim in Kayak also, please let me know the next steps
2.0 MediocreMar 19 2022
When I arrived at the airport the rental store was not with the others and I found out they were offsite and a shuttle was required. I called them to request a shuttle and was put on hold for over 1/2 an hour, was hung up on, and several times there was no answer. When I finally got through, someone told me that my vehicle was no longer available because they only hold it for 1/2 an hour (my flight was delayed by 2 hours). They also said my payment was non refundable. I paid, didn’t get the vehicle and had to use another company, and lost over an hour of vacation time while trying to get through to them. Other companies told me they hold the vehicle for 10 to 12 hours and couldn’t believe what Economy Rent a Car said. Worst experience ever.

Never even got the car. They called me up on the morning of the reservation to ask "if I still wanted the car". I couldn't answer because I was on a flight. I called them back and they said they gave the car away to someone else and they canceled my reservation. In addition, they couldn't provide me with an alternative or another car. Absolute joke.
10.0 ExcellentNov 9 2021
The guy at the front desk was very nice and treated me for an upgrade. The car was brand new :) The price was cheap but I just wanna warn everyone that the cheap price only comes with 150 kms so if you want unlimited kms then you pay extra for it.

The pick up and drop off was okey . The car was nice too , although it had not been washed too well.I rented a car from ACE Rent a Car in Vancouver , BC in late September 2019. I had made arrangements to keep the car 5 days and was quoted a certain price for that time period. Then I decided to keep the car one more week . I called the agency where I had picked up the car and asked how much extra that week would be. The agent quoted a price and made me understand that this would be the total price for the rental for both the original and the additional period of time I was renting. When I went to drop off the car , she charged the full amount and said that the original amount and deposit would be returned. Well this never happened. This car rental ended up costing me an outrageous amount. I tried to talk to somebody at that company's call center to see if they would help me, but they just kept redirecting me to this same , shady agent . Unfortunately I can't recommend this car rental company.

I prepaid online and reserved my car to pick up at 8. Arrived at 8 to find no one there, had to call and ask for someone to help me out. I reserved the car at a specific time for a reason, and I wasn’t getting out of there with the car until after 9. A bit ridiculous in my eyes, Such a lack of care to their costumers. Oh wait there’s more. I bought insurance prior on kayak, but not straight from rent-a-car. Resulting in them withholding a massive fee on my credit card and saying I owe them nearly a grand to replace a windshield because of a tiny chip in the windshield due to driving on the highway. I’ve rented cars before and have never dealt with this kind of thing. No windshield replacement should be that much, and the chip is so minor it could easily be filled for very cheap. But instead rent a car is money grabbing and taking advantage of me. In the process of trying to figure out my claim with the third party insurance, which of course has not been easy. All in all I’m extremely upset by my experience and would recommend you go else where to rent a car.Don’t rent from here!

Top tips for renting a car in Vancouver

  • The North Shore mountain range provides a picture perfect backdrop to the city of Vancouver -- visiting them during your travels is a must. Renting a car will give you the ability to access the mountain range and a long list of adventure activities. Having a car will give you the ability to go skiing or snowboarding on the world-renowned Cypress Mountain, or explore the spectacular views that hikes across Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour have to offer.
  • Picking up a rental car at Vancouver International Airport (VIA) could not be simpler; rental company counters are located next to the baggage claim at both the Main and South terminals. VIA is conveniently located only 9 miles from downtown and you will arrive after approximately 30 minutes of driving.
  • Distances and speed limits are measured in kilometers throughout Canada, so be careful and adjust your driving to suit. Vancouver has numerous flashing green traffic lights, which mean you have the right to drive through the intersection but must approach cautiously and yield to pedestrians who may be crossing. Many cyclists are present on Vancouver roads, so it’s important to keep an active eye on your blind spots. Keep in mind that across the city there are some roads with separated bike lanes and roads where lanes are shared; be mindful in both situations to provide cyclists with a safe amount of room.
  • Like most major cities, rush hour in Vancouver can be frustrating and it is wise to avoid major arterial roads or driving altogether between 5 pm and 7 pm. Traffic can be especially bad on West Georgia Street in the evening and it is advisable to seek an alternative route. Also keep in mind that the bridges of Vancouver, such as the Alex Fraser, can clog up with congestion during peak times and, due to their narrow entries and exits, take a long time to open up again.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Vancouver for $64 or less
  • Book your rental car in Vancouver at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Vancouver are around 38% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Standard rental cars in Vancouver are around -2% cheaper than other car types, on average
