10.0 ExcellentApr 25 2019
Pros: Luis was very prompt and helpful in picking me up, and providing options when the car I'd booked had not been returned by the previous renter.Cons: Nothing!
10.0 ExcellentAug 17 2018
Good people with cars.Pros: Friendliness.Cons: Nothing.
10.0 ExcellentAug 1 2018
Service just as it should be!Pros: The pick up and drop off service went smoothly and quickly. We usually expect to be held up for some reason or another, so pleasantly surprised that this wasn’t the case.
7.6 GoodMay 30 2018
decent car decent pricePros: The car was good economy and practical. everyone was good to deal with on both endsCons: it wasnt very clean when i picked it up. The cost to drop off at a different location
10.0 ExcellentApr 16 2018
Excellent value, polite helpful service!Pros: Compared to prices for airport car rental, this was about one third of the price! It meant travelling by Skytrain downtown, but well worth it. Staff were so helpful, upgraded my car, and gave good tips for returning it early at a different location to simplify my departure. Nissan Elantra was great on gas - had a great trip and no worries about car.
2.0 MediocreMar 18 2018
Terrible rental experienceCons: I was told that I wouldn't have a car available for at least an hour past my reservation time. Then, they told me that they needed to drive me to another location to get a car. Then, that car was dirty and low on gas. I ended up not being able to make the meeting that I needed the car for on time, so returned the rental far ahead of when I was going to, but they still charged me. Absolutely awful experience. What's the point of renting a car if you can't pick it up when you need it?
10.0 ExcellentFeb 25 2018
Pros: Upgrade to Mercedes was unexpected; A real treat.Cons: Quite the learning curve to operate this car, but managed within 3 days, to figure out all the Bells and Whistles.
8.0 ExcellentJan 4 2018
GoodPros: I got the car a little dirty but I got a discount for that and that’s was really good.
10.0 ExcellentNov 15 2017
Nice & easyPros: Easy & quick pickup from Calgary followed by an easy & quick dropoff in Vancouver 2 weeks later. Great value for money too & no catches like other companies

Pros: Staff super friendly. Drop off was easy.Cons: More space at the North Vancouver location. Crowded. Hard to socially distance.
10.0 ExcellentOct 17 2017
Pros: The person who checked me in was very helpful and thorough.Cons: The check-in people noticed damage on the car right away that was already there when I rented the car. Until I produced the damage slip, they make a big deal of it.
9.6 ExcellentOct 6 2017
Pros: Generally very satisfied.Cons: I missed more options for selecting insurance. Having possibility to increase access/decrease price or vice versa would be appreciated.

10.0 ExcellentOct 19 2020
Pros: Staff was great!Cons: Hours of operation (pick up times)
8.0 ExcellentOct 15 2017
Pros: I was able to return the rental car to a location one block away from the hotel I was staying in and did not have to travel to a further location.
10.0 ExcellentApr 29 2017
Pros: We were able to upgrade to a van, and they gave us a discount! The pickup was a lot faster than last time, it was efficient, even though we were a little early! The lady at the desk was nice and friendly.Cons: I tried calling to confirm the reservation the day before. I called 5 times - once I was told they'd call me back and they never did. I called 3 more times and no one answered. The last time, they put me on hold for 20 minutes, and I had to hang up before someone got to me because I had an appointment.
8.8 ExcellentApr 25 2017
Pros: Even though we showed up early, they did all that they could to accommodate us, despite having a limited number of cars available. Employees were very friendly. The car was very modern and nice.Cons: There was a problem with our reservation. We booked 1 car from Vancouver to Whistler, and then another car 4 days later from Whistler to Vancouver. It however registered as 2 cars from Vancouver to Whistler, so we had to clear that up when picking up the first car. We booked a small car, but got a van. We however understand that the movement of Avis cars across the country don't always allow for the wanted type of car to be at the wanted location on the desired date. A van still worked out ok.
8.8 ExcellentApr 25 2017
Pros: The dropoff was done fast, we didn't have to wait long!Cons: There is no Avis sign outside the building, so we drove around the place for a while, unable to find it. We eventually called, and the lady explained that we had to park at the hotel, and there was a counter inside. It was a little confusing.

8.4 ExcellentFeb 25 2019
Cons: I found it very sketchy that Hertz, knowing I was travelling to Whistler, did not mention upgrading to winter tires. Shame on me for assuming they would. I found myself in very dangerous driving conditions. I feel like potential money, rather than my safety, was their priority. No more Hertz!
10.0 ExcellentJan 28 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, well-maintained vehicle, reasonable price.
8.0 ExcellentOct 21 2017
Good overall but tire needed top-upPros: Friendly guy and no problems when picking up and dropping off. Price was as advertised.Cons: Only issue was I noticed the front left tire was soft after I picked it up. I had to stop into a garage and top it up. 5 min job so not too worried but not ideal.

8.8 ExcellentSep 20 2016
Easy and friendly servicePros: Fast and efficient service. Friendly staff. Free upgrade on our car.Cons: Hard to get in touch with customer service while on the road. Only email I found online was to the US branches - they were fast and helpful, but would be better if Canada had their own service email printed on the rental-papers because things are different from the states.
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2016
Great car for 10 day vacationPros: We were upgraded to a Cadillac. Car was in great condition. Comfortable and smooth ride. Car was near empty of gas and we could return the same.Cons: Not much
10.0 ExcellentMay 5 2016
Pros: Staff was super helpful with installing the car seat
2.0 MediocreNov 4 2015
Awful ExperienceCons: Did not even end up renting the car, was not informed of the hours for pickup, arrived 15 mins after scheduled pickup and booth was closed, called several times and could not get through to anyone.. Hoped I was not gong to be charged but now seeing full rental and insurance charge on my credit card. Just got off phone with customer service who said this is a non cancellation fee for booking and not showing up in time. Will not be using this service again
