Friendly staff, fast pick up got exactly what I wanted got a fair deal from the advertise price.The only thing was the tires could have been better. They felt cheap on the road and where very noisy.

The employee at the front desk was not friendly. He did not even mention that the vehicle had a few dents and scratches until we brought it to his attention. Usually, the employee comes with us to verify the vehicle but he did not do it. So we had to do it and come back inside and wait in line again to inform him and he said he already knew. Very unfriendly service and unprofessional. We were recommended by family and friends to rent a vehicle with Enterprise but it was the first time and last time.The customer service. Be polite and cordial. Not dismissive. Especially, you do not know who you are serving.

10.0 Excellent2020 Aug 25
Staff was courteous. I had picked the cheaper "We choose" option, getting my anything above an economical class car. The employee asked me about my plans and when I mentioned camping and hiking far in Charlevoix, he offered an SUV they had on the lot. It was definitely more than what I expected and it made a difference in our trip.No option to return the vehicle on Sundays, as they're closed, so I had to rent the car for an extra day to drop it off on Monday morning.

Staff was very courteus even though they had some stress issue happening. But the lady chatted and managed two employees customers while helping me. BRAVO! They did not have midsize car that I had reserved so they put me in small SUV.Small SUV was a less fuel efficient. So ended up filling more gas before returning. Return was quick even though it was a Sunday night 9 pm.

Hertz called me at 5pm the day BEFORE, I was due to pick up my hire car and said, can you pick it up at 1 pm as we haven't got anything available for you! I was due to pick it up at 8am as I was going to visit family 1 hours drive away. I told them I couldn't pick it up later, has to cancel the booking and won't get a refund for 10 days. Very poor service and will not use them again, nor will I recommend them.

Got bumped up for a bigger car since they did not have what I had requested, with the same price.They would not even try to enter my Visa Electron (with credit card capabilities enabled) to their system, and we had to resort to my friend's MasterCard (with credit and debit). Even with that they first insisted they can't accept it, but after some debate yielded to trying it out and were surprised that it worked as a credit card. I would appreciate if the store first did what the customer asked and only then said something doesn't work if it actually doesn't work. I paid multiple hotels and other things successfully with the Visa Electron in Canada so I'm quite sure it would've worked with Alamo too, for some reason they just didn't want to even try.

- great car- staff at pick up took a call while he was taking my informtiaon which I thought was a bit rude and unprofessional. - drop off in Toronto wasn’t very clear when dropping off after hours.

Way to expensiveI made the reservation online. It said 145$ the only thing I was missing was the 60$ for the insurance. When I did the reservation I clicked on age 21 to 24. When I got to pick up th3 car he added an additional 60$ for being under 25. And something else. To total 311$ that is rediculous. When I got into the car, the gas light was on. When I dropped off the car the place said opened but the door was locked and no one was there. Horrible service and the most expensive I have ever paid for a rental.

The day before our trip a rep from Budget called to say they would not have a car for us and lease don't show up at their location ( not at airport). He said to call customer service and change my reservation to the airport as they would have cars. I called the toll free number and explained to the helpful rep what the conversation had been with the Budget location. She happily changed my reservation from that location to the airport - then informed me that my $147 reservation was now $538. She said that after the rental I could call customer service and request a refund. I hung up and thought through that conversation. I called customer service back, got a new person and explained the whole scenario again. He said "I only see your current reservation at the airport." I went through it again. He said "the reservation is at the airport for $538. There is no other history." Felt extremely scammy and dishonest. He could have cares less about the situation. I then cancelled my reservation and have vowed to never rent from Budget again.

The reservation of a small car was confirmed online even though at the location there were only pick-up trucks. So I had to take one, and it's very cumbersome with terrible mileage. I wish the online booking worked more accurately with what is really available at a specific location.

Car drove from Quebec to Montreal with no problem. Comfortable and quiet.It was a very stressful experience returning the car. It was downtown Montreal (Place Desjardins--Blvd Rene Levesque/Jeanne Mance) and one street was blocked off for a festival. Our GPS also kept trying to take us on the opposite side of the rental office. The office was closed, so we just gave it a shot to call a hotel nearby, the Hyatt Regency. Luckily the man on the phone gave us a clear route down St. Urbain (one way street) to find the office (a small sign outside a parking garage). So call that hotel if you get lost! The office was down in the parking garage. There was no sign of where to put the car, except a space with a bunch of cars with a rope across it. We decided to just unhook the rope and park it there. It also took us awhile to find the key drop (a inconspicuous pipe with a lid over it). A sign with an indication "key drop" would be helpful.

ExcellentI've done over a dozen car rentals in my life and without a doubt, this was the easiest and fastest I've ever had. No upselling, or trying to get my to pay for an upgrade when my reservation was out, I was driving within 3 minutes of walking into the place. They let me switch return locations by phone no hassles at all.

No employees at the drop-offConvenient location, I guess.The drop-off location was in the bottom level of a garage under a hotel. There was a door requiring a code, which I was not given, so I had to park on the street and go up to the hotel desk, who eventually sent a porter down to open the door for me. Once I got inside I found a budget office on the bottom level with the door open, but no employees anywhere to be found. After waiting for 15 minutes and not seeing anyone I decided to just leave my receipt and the keys in the car. I had not filled the gas tank and was hoping to ask the employee what the charge would be so I could judge if I wanted to take the car back out and find a gas station before handing the keys over or if it wasn't worth it, but obviously was unable to do that. Upon seeing my adjusted bill yesterday, I see that they charged me $122 for what could only have been at most 8 gallons of gas.

Rental was actually Discount but still ACE as I understand it...The staff was generally kind and helpful to interact with when needed. Cars were comfortable to ride in.Did not have my promised car (economy) or similar (compact). Was offered a minivan, which is insane as I'm by myself in a foreign country and don't need something large to increase accident likelihood. Was okay with BMW X1 as it's a very small SUV, until the warning light came on 45min into rental saying IT'S 500KM OVERDUE FOR BRAKE PAD REPLACEMENT. Had to return it, held car for half day of rental and then given Jeep (only option given); ride was fine but uses more gas than I wanted, still too big a car for one person. Upon dropoff, was clear they had only one shuttle despite two full shuttles of people waiting to get to airport. Had to take a cab out of concern of missing flight. Also worth mentioning that during my three trips to the rental location, saw zero compact cars on lot; saw almost entirely Jeeps. Would recommend a metric added to KAYAK displaying chances of being FORCED to take an "upgrade", as some people don't want these larger cars that clearly make up the bulk of their fleet. Not certain this car rental company's location relies too heavily on the concept of repeat business.
