Pros: Easy renting it @ the airport, friendly staffCons: The walk to & from the terminal. Also no one to show me different features such as turning off & on wipers, how to work the sun roof, didn't know there was a lever in the car to release the fuel door. Twice the vehicle I wanted wasn't there.

9.2 Excellent2017 Dec 02
Great overall experiencePros: Quick service - nice, clean and good car.Cons: Considering i was driving in the Kootrnays i really wish i had snow tires on! Some very dangerous driving and the tires were all seasons - not ideal for high mountain driving.
6.8 Good2017 Nov 20
Check the tires carefullyPros: Nice vehicle, leather, heated seats and steering wheel and automatic start and lightsCons: The tires were awful. I was to go over mountain passes and insisted on winter tires. With only a couple of cars left they did give me their AWD and they said the tires were rated as mud/snow they were bald. Scary on the passes!!!

6.4 Good2019 Sep 02
Pros: Everything was great except for the items listed in the next section.Cons: The taxes had to be paid at pickup, and due to the location being at the airport, were quite high (airport improvement tax). During booking, I was not made aware of these taxes, so they were a big surprise, being over $100.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Aug 30
Cons: When I arrived at the airport kiosk to pick up my rental vehicle I had misjudged the time of arrival and my flight came in early so when I went to get my rental I was told that because I was an hour early I could have my car but would have to pay an extra 45.00! Not acceptable.

10.0 Excellent2018 Dec 02
Overall great experience!Pros: For me, it was also handy to have a city (vs airport) location.Cons: I didn't appreciate that winter tires are considered an upsell. It wasn't relevant for my trip but soon when there is snow, winter tires are practically mandatory for out-of-town driving.
9.2 Excellent2018 Oct 10
Pros: Friendly staff and quick service.
10.0 Excellent2018 Aug 01
Great customer service!Pros: Our flight was delayed and we were going to arrive after the rental office had closed so I called ahead and two representatives stayed late to make sure we got our rental. My wife and two young children waited back at the airport and it worked out very well. Thank you for the extra service! We highly recommend the Driving Force. The Keith family

mini is too miniPros: clean and smokefreeCons: reserved a 4 door 4 seater for 3 bags, got two seater with three bags
6.4 Good2017 Apr 26
Pros: Very friendly, uncomplicated staff.Cons: Poor selection of vehicles. Ended up with a 4 cylinder Patriot which was screaming most of the time due to the lack of power. Therefore used around 15 liters per 100km. Rather drive a V8 and at least be able to drive relaxed...
8.4 Excellent2017 Apr 04
Payment issues on pickupPros: The actual car was fine. Well equipped for the conditions i drove it in.Cons: At pickup the counter worker could not process the car on my visa for some reason and blamed my card for the problem. We tried another card from mastercard and same problem. Then we tried a third card a visa and it worked. Seems like their system only likes certain cards from certain banks. So bring a few cards with you!
5.6 Okay2017 Jan 05
Pros: Car was clean, dropoff and pickup was easy tough ther could be better signs of where to go.Cons: How can there be an extra charge for getting Winther tires on your wehicle when you rent a car in the Winther? The wehicle are not allowed on all highways with only all season tires.

Pros: The older gentlemen that work the shuttles were very kind and friendly. That is where the positive experience ends.Cons: Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.
