This company is the worst. While flying across Canada enterprise called me while I was in flight and had no service. After a$ 75 cab from the airport to the rental place they told me they rented out the car I had reserved and didn't have anything for me, leaving me stranded. If you reserve anything with this service call ahead before you waste time and money.

The staff were great at pick-up, but not so great at drop off. They tried to tell me I was going to be charged $350 for detailing because they had to vacuum the vehicle. I took a lint roller to it and it was fine.

Had an amazing experience with Enterprise - Brandon gave me an upgrade as they were a few minutes late picking me up- brand new car. Adam who gave me a lift home was very friendly and just made my experience great with a personal touch. Thank you again , best service ever

Car was not clean. This is a big concern especially during this pandemic. Also I had to wait a long time to pick up the vehicle. I should have just rented from the airport. The South Calgary trail location in Edmonton is not a good location to rent

I usually rent with enterprise but they didn't have the type of vehicle I needed so I went with Avis. In the past Avis over charged me (see Vegas review) but this time there were absolutely no billing issues and their checkout process was the fastest I'd ever had at YEG. It wasn't the cheapest rental but Edmonton has unusually high rental prices in general.

Drop off was awful! No signs where to take car. Finally found a tiny sign to drive to the 7th fl of garage. No attendant around. Spent 20 minutes walking around offices to find someone.

Both pick-up nad drop-off of the car were fast, and staff were all friendly.I was surprised that my rental car did not have a block heater, given how cold temperatures can get in winter in Edmonton.

Avis drop off Banff downtown is a nightmare for stressNice vehicle. TeasonableDowntown drop off location was impossible due to lack of deatails, signage, traffic no where to stop. Deatailed directions for complicated drop off downtown should be provided. Alternative location should be provided with directions
10.0 Excellent2018 Jun 05
The attendant at the drop off location was helpful and attentive to my concern and fixed the problem.AVIS was charging me for a late fee, when I had paid for 2days (2*24hr periods)

Avis wouldn't honor the confirmed rental rateBooked a Tahoe online and when we went to pick up the car and was signing all the documents, noticed the price was more than 4 times the price. I showed them my confirmation but the time my just told me there must have been an issue with the booking site. There was no mention of this before I was about to sign and they would not honor the confirmed price I had so I left and went to Alamo who gave me a great deal. Thank you Alamo. Last time booking Avis

I have rented from Driving Force every time I go out to Western Canada in the past 5 years. They are always the best price and give me better vehicle then what I select on the reservation. The only fault I can find, is the Airport location only has limited hours of operation so if you have an early flight or late arrival, they are closed.

looked after all my needs great. the only suggestion is have a shuttle on weekends. cost 25 dollars to get to airport

YesIt wasn't really obvious from my paperwork that we had to call for the shuttle to come pick us up at the airport. The number could be more "front and centre" on the reservation paper. Luckily, someone else on our flight was renting with them and had already called the number.

They are after your money and don't care about you. They charged me $400 plus for one day. I am with a lawyer preparing to see them.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 27
When I was booking - I searched for a rental at the Edmonton Airport. My car ended up being booked at a Thrifty that was about a 40 minute drive from the airport. We had to hire a driver with a large vehicle (because of all of our luggage) to get us there. It cost a $100! When we finally arrived we were given a vehicle that had not been cleaned. We had to wait even longer for it to be sanitized. The whole ordeal between waiting and travel time took about 2 hours. I will never book with hotwire again. They should be reimbursing me for the $100 (or more).

The car smelt freshI could have gotten what I wanted and the time I wanted it. Your employees could use better interpersonal skills. Customers relations. Took me almost a week to get a car . I was not impressed I called and never once got a call back from any rep that I talked to

The staff was not friendly I was charged 30 dollars more during pic up . Also the car was parked in the basement parking lot I couldn't see every thing clear because it was dark after I drive out the car from the parking I call them to mention about there was detective at the edge of driver side door and I was told they check it with flash light i was on the phone 2 twice instead of hedding iff to my destination finally they told me to take a pic .Customer service suppose to be more professional and help full instead of giving out the kie and expect you to check for any scratched wille the car was parked in the basement parked.

Staff was far from helpful. Seemed very miserable. I ended up cancelling my reservationLet people know online when making a reservation. That you need a MasterCard. And that you don’t accept visa. Kind of shitty. Making a reservation online put all my info in. All my card info. Just to show up. And not even be able to get it cause they can’t swipe my Visa card. What a joke

The truck was clean.1) We reserved a car and when we showed up they only had two pickup trucks to choose from. 2) The had the vehicle in 4-wheel drive mode, instead of 2-wheel so we drove three hours in that mode. Would assume that we got worse gas mileage. 3) Overall gas usage, and cost, was higher just by using a big truck instead of the car that we reserved. 4) Big truck made is almost impossible to find a parking spot when driving in downtown Calgary. Truck was almost too high for the parking garage for the hotel that we stayed in. 5) Finally we were charged the rate for a truck as opposed to the rate for the car that we reserved. A

Total frustrationThey over booked thier office. My reservation was a premium. They had one car. Ford (in no way it was premium). I agreed. They they slapped me with 100 km a day ONLY. my trip to jasper is 700 km. Thats lots of money for over mileage. I told to terminate and send me home. We didn't go anywhere. My wife and little kid were extremely sad and disappointed. Terrible experience
