Very efficient staff—I was in my car in less than 5 min from arriving at the counterI wanted a compact car, but the key to it was misplaced so I was given a “free upgrade” to an SUV. It was a definite upgrade in car, but as the city I was driving in had narrow streets and park places, I was wishing I had the compact instead. Really think twice about accepting an alternate class of car and if it will suit your needs as well.

Arrangements made ahead of time were all right at pick up. Fairly quick pick up, quite straight forward. Super easy drop off.Would have preferred to pick a car from a few choices. The car was fine, economical on fuel but a little low to the ground for a few passengers.

under 25, I was tending to rent a suv and It was ok to do online. However, they said no when I was ready to pick up the car . I wish they can inform me early about not allowing people to rent a SUV who under 25before I am ready to drive the car.

My experience was actually amazing. The on line experience and both in person experiences were excellent. I do not want to take away from that. The accidental ordering of two cars, and being able to cancel with no trouble was a very great experience as well.My experience ordering an economy car and getting a V6, was a bit sad. I had a long way to travel and that was the impulse to get a eco car. The gas cost more that the rental of the car, due to the engine size. My recommendation would to ensure if a eco car was ordered do your best or at least tell the person so they may choose something more fuel efficient. All in all great experience. Thank you so much!

Overall the process was decent. Easy to receive and drop off vehicle.Lines are too long. Also, CC bill was US $17 higher than I thought. I called the 800 and Rick told me it was extra charge to add another driver (didn't need it, just a precaution). I always read the contract on big ticket items, but a car rental??? I should have been told up front.

Rental Car From HellIt was the right size.Wait time was very long picking up the car, they seemed under staffed. The electronic and USB connections were not working! Therefore our phones would not charge and our GPS systems would not work!! The GPS system in the car was stuck on demo mode and kept shutting off after about two minutes. Navigation was a nightmare! They also failed to tell us that the gas cap lid was a spring loaded push plate, so we wasted a lot of time looking for a release lever before we figured it out.

Very easy to rent a vehicle.Employee's were friendly and helpfulIt was a little difficult to find the rental location. We did not see any signs for the car rental locations until after we were out in the parking lot.
7.6 GoodJun 19 2017
The car was very nice - clean, newer and worked well. Drop off was easy.1. When we picked up the car, the driver had to be the name of the person who made the reservation. I had intended for my husband to be the driver, but since I had used my own name for the reservation, I had to be the driver, which I was not comfortable with. We have never before had this experience and we have rented many cars in the past. We were told the only way to change the driver is to cancel the reservation and start all over again with a new reservation. As we had arrived at 9pm and it was getting late and we had had a tiring long day, we did not want to start all over. 2. Another thing we found annoying was that there were $103 of additional taxes and fees we had to pay upon pick-up that we were not advised of when we made the reservation. When I reserved the car on line, it was because Hertz seemed to have the lowest price. With the additional $103 that we ended up having to pay, it was probably the most expensive of all of the companies. And this was not for additional insurance or anything like that. It was taxes and fees slapped on. The attendant said it had been in the small print. Again, we have never before had this experience with a rental car. Usually, the price you see in the large print is the price you pay and no more. Because of this, we would not rent from Hertz again.
6.4 GoodJun 12 2017
I liked that they had the vehicle we needed available. The vehicle was clean. The pick up went well.They said using my insurance was ok. Didn't explain that they would refuse it if something happened. We had a small chip in th corner from a rock that was thrown from a pick up in front of us. We filed a claim. When we returned the car she wouldn't talk to us about it just kept repeating no third parties no third parties handed me a bill for$250 and wouldn't explain anything. Refused. Horrible customer service and we will not be using hertz again.
2.0 MediocreMay 26 2017
Stole $340 from me.I had authorized $57 to be paid at time of pickup. After returning the car, Hertz charged $395 to my credit card for "detailing". Disputing.

Dodge Durango was clean and new. Ladies at pickup were nice.We waited for at least 45 mins to an hour to get a shuttle to pick up our car. It's a bit of a sketchy operation but then the big operators can seem that way too just have a lacquer of a big corporation.
3.2 MediocreAug 11 2019
The rest of the staff is stressed and overworked - it’s not their fault they work in some crappy place - but it affects the service. The building is some old restaurant - which, whatever, nice use of repurposing - but it’s not taken care of. The car was fine - it was dented when I got it.Do not rent from this place. It took an hour to get my car (from arrival to standing in line to actually getting the car), and then it took 40 minutes to wait for the shuttle upon return. Also, the driver on the way to the place told me I had “nice hair” (we were alone in the van - SUPER creepy.)

We liked: the way we were treated by all the National folks. The car, a Hyundai Kona, was just perfect. I'd buy one if we didn't already have a year-old SUV. We didn't like: the really long line to get the car. The fact that while we thought we booked the car at the airport, we were actually supposed to pick it up elsewhere. And we really hated that we were charged a whole lot more for showing up early because of a last-minute flight change (although your agent was able to mitigate that a little).

A rental nightmareTurning the car in at Seattle was as should have been.Overpriced!!! $630 for 2 days. We went to the National counter at Vancouver, and were told that they did not handle my rental. That I had to go to the South terminal. No instructions on how to get to the South terminal were given. We went around the airport lugging 5 suitcases and an infant for over 1 1/2 hours until a bus driver told us how to get to the remote terminal. I will avoid renting from National ever again.

Receiving my carReceived a complimentary upgrade based on the fact that my car class was not availableTransaction was completed with the agent but needed to wait while the manager handled the process of picking out my vehicle. I worked as a manager in rental car for 10 years and found this practice a bit strange. Also, we were asked to initial the vehicle inspection BEFORE we received and saw the car. This should never happen. The inspection should be done WITH the customer before they get the car. NATIONAL should know better than this.

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.

OverpricedCar was clean, ran well (Toyota Camry).I only had the car 5 days and was charged the weekly rate. I was given only 1 day of insurance back when I brought it back early. On your website it doesn't mention the $30/day for insurance on top of the rental charge. I was led to believe at booking everything was included. Too expensive.

the car was smaller than i expected from an SUV, but it worked out fine. also, i asked for a ski rack at time of reservation and also called thrifty the day before we went to vancouver. both times i was told that my request was recorded, but not guaranteed. so i thought there was a decent chance that i would get a ski rack since i requested it so far in advance. when we arrived at the pick up location, i was told that they do not have ski racks in that location and never have them available for customers. that was kind of weird.

Although the young man at the desk did not seem eager to help, when pressed, he said the manager might help us find another car rental place. And he did. That was appreciatedI feel having a phone system that allows call to be answered and messages received would be helpful. When we were running late and called to tell them no one answered and the mailbox was full. We could not leave a message. As a consequence the car we reserved was given to someone else.

The check in process was about an hour. The car that we were assigned was driven off of the lot to get cleaned just as we were done signing over four contracts. This led to another long delay. We recommend using another car service if you want a timely departure and good customer service.

What I liked was the staff. They worked hard to remedy the situation while explaining what went wrong in the web booking. Their team effort to make it right for us was very appreciated. I know in the future that I can trust this company to do the right thing. I liked these guys and their effort madeTo compete with the big companies they could be better at streamlining pick up and drop off since they are offsite. Technology could really enhance that. Uniforms project professionalism. It is these points that could really enhance their business.

Horrible experienceI had a Europcar reservation for a car, but it was handled by Discount Car Rental in Vancouver. When I showed up, they had no cars, and only offered me a very large truck with an open flat bed. This did not accomodate my 5 passengers, and the luggage would get wet since it was raining. The manager said I could exchange it the next day or two for the car I reserved, but when I returned, there were no cars. After initally telling me they couldn't refund my remaining rental fee, they agreed, and I went to another car rental company. I would not rent from them every again.

The car was listed as being on airport grounds. That was not true. They drive the car on site, however the driver was unable to locate us, even though we were right in the arrival area to pick up rental cars. Many other brands were all there. NOT NEXTCAR. Buyer beware.

The advertisement was that it was at Vancouver International Airport. It is not.I had to search the internet to find where they were at. You need to take a train to get to them and then call them for a pick up. I called and it went to voicemail. Do not use this service at all. It leaves you stranded. Lucky for me Budget at the airport had a vehicle. What a farce. I travel extensively for work all across Canada. I don't have time for this crap. Kayak do your homework. worst experience ever. Rate this a zero out of five.

Absolutely the worst car rental place you will ever visit. Please do yourself a favour and stay away

Overall a good experience; wasn’t clear one needs to call to get a shuttle and the number on the reservation is not the correct telephone number.

Nothing to like as this place is a scam. They said we were over 30 minutes late and that our car was given to someone else. They then tried to rent us a car for twice the price. Avoid at all cost!

Pick up took a long time, had to take a train from the airport to the train station and then had to get picked up by the rental company, and then had to wait almost a whole hour before we got our vehicle. We were scheduled to get a Honda Civic but ended up with a smaller car, which was fine but just not what I had paid for. The drop off was fine and they drove us directly back to the airport which was nice.

Pick up is not at Vancouver Airport and there's no shuttle. U either take the skytrain or beg them to pick u up. Pick up was a nightmare. They couldn't find my reservation. 2 hour wait later, we finally had a car. We dropped it off in downtown Vancouver and thank goodness that was easy, so made up for the aggravation of pick up. Would I recommend them? Only if price is your most important criteria.

Slowest, least friendly car rental location. Basically, no one (customers and staff) looked like they were having a good time. Slowest pick-up I have ever experienced, and the drop-off was also embarrassingly slow.

I paid for the rental but when we arrived to pick up the car they try to charge me the same price again on my credit card! I already told them it’s paid and they still try to get me to pay again! People be very careful for this store! I am so worried about the pre-authorized that they made me to process, it’s still showing pending in my bank account after a week we have returned the car. The most weird thing is - they copied my ID and credit card copy and also COPIED THE CVV NUMBER ON THEIR RECORD! This is so unacceptable and the staffs always talk to each other in their language that is not english and the clients won’t be able to understand what they are talking about! Just be careful everyone this car rental company is totally not trustworthy! I won’t recommend this store to anyone, avoid it if possible!

Read their Yelp reviews. You should not do business with this company. I lost faith in Kayak after my experience with them and after reading the reviews. Kayak should have eliminated them as an option before they screwed me. Disappointing!!! Kayak should do better

The car company appears to be a phony company. Neither they have presence on Vancouver airport where I was supposed to pick up rental from nor do they have local phone number. I asked around found out their local phone number and after several calls and multiple voicemails, nobody bothered to call me back. Booking was made on KAYAK via PriceLine and payment was already made but didn't get the rental. A fraud company; not sure why KAYAK and PriceLine list them although very many negative comments.

When we got to the rental office, they took our information and told us they were taking us to our car. They did not have a car for us, but instead referred our reservation to another company without telling us. We were then given a smaller vehicle for our group which we had TO PAY AGAIN FOR AND FOR MORE MONEY!! We were squeezed into the smaller SUV. This smelled like a bait and switch operation. As we were returning our car, I overheard another man having the same conversation I had a week earlier. NEVER RENT FROM THIS COMPANY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!NEVER RENT FROM THEM !!!!!
