I was able to change my reservation and get a minivan and I had three hours added to my reservation for no extra charge. I appreciated the flexibility with enterprise. Thank you!

Price of the car kept going up higher up as I tried to rent the car. I had to make few changes as soon as I did this car became ridiculously more expensive and these changes were for less days. I swore of all .com web sites. I will go directly to supplier in all transection.

they were flexible and helped me manage my changing requirements following a bereavement in the family. All staff were excellent, particularly our airport shuttle driver.An addition $100 charge for an airport drop off (Particularly when the location of the drop off wasn’t actually at the airport!) seemed a bit steep!

The staff at Avis were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The car they gave me was clean, new, very comfortable, and well maintained. I would have preferred not to have a maximum daily mileage, but I know that limitation helped keep the costs of the rental down.

Pick up and drop off were both very easy. Car was clean. I am only 5’10” but my head was touching the car roof; not a rental issue but the experience of driving the car over bumps was an issue.

At pick up, she was not aware of the insurance I had with an external company which I booked through kayak and kept trying to sell me more insurance which was annoying
6.4 Good2019 Sep 17
Drop-off was great.I'd been told that the pick-up spot was at the airport but it turned out to be quite a ways away and we had to take a cab to get there. The clerk sent us to the wrong parking spot for the car and we had to find it on our own. There was a disconcerting "thud" noise and jarring when idling.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Aug 18
NothingEverything - reservation system was misleading - called to verify reservation and was lied to - staff at the Richmond BC location was terribly and incredibly rude - will never use the Kayak system again to reserve and will NEVER EVER use Avis again

I ordered the car online and asked for it at 11am. Got there at 10:45 and only got the car an hour later. When i tried to get a couple extra hours before returning it, they wanted to charge me $65/hour. That's almost as much as i was paying per day. When i returned the car they added some random $15 charge called "early return". I waited and spoke to them again and got a refund but even the person helping me couldn't tell me what that charge was for so if i hadn't questioned it I would've been charged extra for nothing (or for returning the car early??).
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 17
The location is convenient. But otherwise everything went wrong. You should not deal with this Hertz location at 1270 Granville in Vancouver. They are dishonest. My online reservation price was $524.72 from Thursday 11am to the following Wed. 3pm....Technically considered a week.....7days. At pick up, the price became $622.26 including a $87.75 amount of "premium location charge" which was not included in the online price.....This was claimed as a charge by the airport Hertz because I booked within 24 hrs upon landing in Vancouver airport. Why was this not disclosed to me when I booked online? When I asked if spouse is automatically included as second driver, I was told it costs $13.50/day to add spouse. I called head office to verify and was told it's free if I am a CAA member.....Which the staff acknowledged...But why did he not mention it? Was he trying hard to make more money by not offering what his customers are entitled to? We were already at the location a whole hour trying to verify details by phone with customer service ....Since we felt we could not trust the staff. Eager to leave, we neglected to read every detail on the contract. The following Wed looking at the contract it stated that we must return car by 11am or suffer additional charge......And we did. But afterwards we gave it thought and concluded that one week means Thursday 11am to the following Thursday 11 am. We were cheated one day by returning car on Wed 11am instead of Wed 3pm as I originally planned. The few more hours before we needed to catch our flight could mean visiting the Vancouver Aquarium as originally planned. Rather, without a car, we could only wander about on the streets. It was the worst car rental.ecperience ever.
1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 10
Where to start? We arrived at Hertz (790 Southwest Marine Drive, Vancouver) to collect our car at approximately 3pm on August 25th. Upon arrival, we were informed that we were late and, as a result, that our car had been given away, regardless of the fact that we'd paid our reservation in full. Asking how we were to be informed of this policy, the clerk swiftly pointed us to a tattered and seemingly illegitimate notice on the glass of his kiosk. He was quick to inform us that it is the third party rental platform's responsibility to make this policy known to the customer. Note that this was at no point communicated to us through the Kayak booking process. Stating that all small cars had been removed from the lot due to lack of space, he naturally only had larger SUV's available at a rate 40% higher than what we already paid. We dished out the cash to salvage 11 days worth of road trip and bookings. Besides the lack of communication and the surcharges, the rental process was made extremely unpleasant due to the lack of professionalism of the personnel. The clerk who served us on arrival was condescending, rude, and ultimately unhelpful. Moreover, when I needed to obtain more information from Hertz during our trip, Anesh reluctantly answered after 6 attempts. He clearly had better things to do and was very quick to get me off the phone. Long story short: avoid at all costs, unless you take pleasure in these sketchy dealings.
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 27
Worst experience of my life. Rented the car months ago for my wedding. Received a call the day before telling me they no longer had a car for me. Had to change all plans to accommodate travel to my destination wedding and meeting relatives from the US and making sure they arrived safely. Would not recommend HERTZ to my worst enemy.
5.9 Okay2021 Aug 16
Good rental but prices were too high. Also, no heads up on a $350 hold on my credit card account, which I didn't have readily available. I had to call my credit card company to allow it to happen. A heads up would have mitigated that problem. Also allowed debit to be a form of payment would be helpful.

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. However, I booked a Rav4 which is pretty comparable to a Chevy Esquire. I just feel like I overpaid for the upgrade.

They did not have my car although I specifically called to make sure the car was going to be there.

The pick up and drop off was okey . The car was nice too , although it had not been washed too well.I rented a car from ACE Rent a Car in Vancouver , BC in late September 2019. I had made arrangements to keep the car 5 days and was quoted a certain price for that time period. Then I decided to keep the car one more week . I called the agency where I had picked up the car and asked how much extra that week would be. The agent quoted a price and made me understand that this would be the total price for the rental for both the original and the additional period of time I was renting. When I went to drop off the car , she charged the full amount and said that the original amount and deposit would be returned. Well this never happened. This car rental ended up costing me an outrageous amount. I tried to talk to somebody at that company's call center to see if they would help me, but they just kept redirecting me to this same , shady agent . Unfortunately I can't recommend this car rental company.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Car was niceThe shuttle service is lacking compared to other car rentals. Customers arriving from other countries may not be able to call them for a pickup. Some kind of texting option would work better. Also, there was no early shuttle available to return to the airport. They were helpful and arranged a cab.

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.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Aug 29
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.

Good car, roomy and nice to drive.When we arrived we discovered that I had reserved our vacation with one day missing. The “fix” for an 8 day rental, adding only one day, more than offered DOUBLED our expense. We will never use this company ever again.

This is supposed to be an airport car rental but they close at 6:00 and you can’t pick up your car after that. Unbelievable. And don’t try to pick it up a second sadly either or they’ll try to charge you for an extra day.

The car was really nice even though it was dirtyClean car, pickup really complicated (can only call a local number no email which makes it stressful/difficult), offsite, multiple names of rental car place, charged actual deposit instead of putting pending/hold on card
9.2 Excellent2019 Mar 05
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.

I prepaid online and reserved my car to pick up at 8. Arrived at 8 to find no one there, had to call and ask for someone to help me out. I reserved the car at a specific time for a reason, and I wasn’t getting out of there with the car until after 9. A bit ridiculous in my eyes, Such a lack of care to their costumers. Oh wait there’s more. I bought insurance prior on kayak, but not straight from rent-a-car. Resulting in them withholding a massive fee on my credit card and saying I owe them nearly a grand to replace a windshield because of a tiny chip in the windshield due to driving on the highway. I’ve rented cars before and have never dealt with this kind of thing. No windshield replacement should be that much, and the chip is so minor it could easily be filled for very cheap. But instead rent a car is money grabbing and taking advantage of me. In the process of trying to figure out my claim with the third party insurance, which of course has not been easy. All in all I’m extremely upset by my experience and would recommend you go else where to rent a car.Don’t rent from here!
