Pros: Absolutely nothing to like.
Cons: This was disgraceful. I have rented cars and traveled my entire life, and have never wanted to write a negative review about anything before. But this company just begged for it. I reserved a car online in advance and read the fine print. Nowhere did it mention anything about car insurance and like any other company, one would figure that they'd ask if I'd like to take their insurance or not. Instead, as I'm standing in front of them after flying in from NY, they ask me for proof of car insurance to show that I had full collision coverage. Since I, like everyone else I know, keep my insurance in my car or at home, the gentleman tried to force me to take their insurance for $500...and pointed to a sign in the dingy office stating that...yet it was never posted anywhere else in advance. When I declined to rent from him, he told me he was charging me for the first day even though my reservation stated that I wouldn't be charged until I accepted the car. I wound up renting at the airport for the same price with a major company...and it took me 5 minutes to do so. Needless to say, I have spoken with my credit card company who will be fighting this charge for me. I would advise anyone to use a familiar company at the airport even if it is slightly more. You get what you pay for.

Pros: There was nothing good about this rental car experience.
Cons: The shuttle bus didn't show. The number given to call the shuttle bus was a disconnected number. The man at the desk was extremely rude and unpleasant. The drop off location was at a different location than the pickup location and the directions/address given to get there was wrong. Horrible rental experience-do not rent from this company if you visit Montreal!

Pros: They use Honda Civic sedans for their rentals.
Cons: It took 30 minutes for the shuttle to pick us up from the terminal upon arrival. Then another 20 minutes to get the car once at the rental office. They only had one guy serving the desk and he was also the guy that would run to get the cars out of the yard where they were parked. He was not courteous or friendly at all. The car was dirty and had scratches all over it. The office was filthy, our car's low washer fluid light came on after 1 use, the tires were all 10lbs under pressure so we had to fill them at a gas station which cost us $3. Not a large sum of money but why should I have to pay for air? If a rental company does nothing else they should at least check the oil, check the tires, check the gas, and wash the car after every use. It was obvious the was never done. The price online said $151 but when we returned the car it cost us $265. I asked why the difference and he just grumbled because that's the cost. I will not be using Kayak or Economy Car Rentals in the future.
