1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 11
I booked a vehicle through Kayak website and when I arrived at the car rental shop they had no inventory available for rent. Not sure why Kayak would list vehicles as available when there were none to be rented? Such a waste of time and very frustrating.

The drop off was so quick and easy which was nice because our flight was waiting. They let us change the drop off location part way through which was great. We called the 1-800 national car rental and we were able to talk to a real person within a few minutes. That was very nice for us.

Friendly staff, excellent location, nice comfortable vehicle.A little difficult to return the vehicle due to one way roads not easily maneuverable but on the 2nd go-around we figured out how to get into the lot and through the road construction. Nice staff, but they really scrutinize the vehicle so take pictures before you drive off the lot.

The drop off was convenient.We went to National twice after driving a distance to get there and were not able to add a second driver either time. Misinformation, computer system down, nobody there. Very frustrating,.
3.6 Mediocre2019 Jul 23
Damage check when returning felt like a criminal investigation. It ended up fine, but seemed like they were really trying to find insignificant damage to hold you accountable for. They also shadily dodged questions about the gas fill up requirements.

The whole experience was awful, I will never use national car rentals again.The customer service and management
8.4 Excellent2019 Jun 05
Car was clean.This office has a weird after hours dropoff policy: you are "responsible for the car" even when you drop the keys off in their lock box. In short: you're responsible for any damage even after you "return" the car until they have someone process your return.

7.6 Good2019 Mar 13
everything on time and as expected however... the new electronic "agreement" seems pretty sketchy, no hard copy for the customer... could easily be changed on their side cant fit all the negatives into the better part, oopsfirst off, the guy who i picked up the car from straight up lied to me saying gas from them would be 2.15/liter if i dropped it off empty, saying its below market price, great deal, no extra fees... wow sounds very nice... i looked closer at the electronic agreement, nope, almost 3.00/liter....

Staff were efficient and friendly. The rental pick up and drop off was quick and easy. Great value for the money.Only issue was the exterior of rental vehicle was not clean when picked up.
8.4 Excellent2019 Feb 20
nice car, friendly staffhad to wait 1.5 hours (past closing time...) for a car, because other renter was 3.5 hours late returning the vehicle. Seemed like a lack of communication, but not sure if one person was just blaming other for the situation... I was offered a small discount for the trouble.

Very dirty carService was good, man behind the counter was ver friendly.The car was not clean inside or out. The windows inside the car were discussing - not sure they had ever been cleaned. We cleaned them ourselves so we could see to drive.

Everything worked out well with the car rental, except the original quote was in US dollars. This should be clarified when the rental is in Canada. Simply adding US$ beside the final quote would eliminate misunderstandings.
8.8 Excellent2020 Oct 27
The car was very clean. The price was great (likely because of COVID)

The pick up was unorganized and took a bit for anyone to acknowledged me. They seemed to be understaffed and not aware of what was going on. The office was extremely hot and was not well kept.
9.2 Excellent2019 Jul 22
They told us we would have a Kia online and ended up with a very small car that was hard to get our luggage in. Any other car was going to be exceptionally more expensive so we didn’t really have a choice.
9.6 Excellent2019 Jul 17
hard pressure on insurance but everything else was wonderful
5.2 Okay2019 May 06
Pick up staff told me they did not have a full sized car and tried to push me into paying 80 dollars more for a car I did not want or need. Was that a pushy individual or is it a management policy. I think it was the agent
8.4 Excellent2018 Oct 20
Friendly staff. Price was good.Seats were a little soiled.

I cancelled my reservation. Unlimited mileage from the Victoria Budget office does include travel outside the province of B.C. There is a surcharge per kilometre for the entire rental if you travel outside of B.C. This should be noted on your site when selecting this Budget location. I became aware of this during a research on a travel web site. This was confirmed with a call to the car rental office. Unlimited should mean unlimited.

Solid rental at a great priceMy wife and I were able to rent a car at the last minute, on a holiday weekend, but at a very good price. Car was clean and comfortable.Couldn't find an owner's manual to understand a few of the car's quirks, but eventually figured them out.

Pick up was complicated and took a long time. There was a new employee checking me out, but she didn't seem to have very friendly support from the rest of her team. I felt bad for her. Also, there was an attempted charge for a driver's licence check which shocked me. I think this is ABSOLUTELY(cont from first question) RIDICULOUS. I cannot believe Hertz charges for checking the driver's licence. I will not be renting from Hertz again because of this.
10.0 Excellent2019 Jun 18
Everything's was very fast and easy and the car was great. We noticed during the pre-trip inspection that one tire had a nail in it, as is common around here with all the construction, so they gave me a new car, no issues at all with only a slight delay to change the paperwork. It was great.Not much. I was really happy with it all.
9.2 Excellent2019 Jun 16
We like the pick up at 1 location and drop off at another location with no extra fee. The rental car was clean and affordable.

Really appreciated the pick up and drop off from/to the harbor. Gary was very friendly and helpful in pointing out how to navigate the city and where all the good spots are.
2.0 Mediocre2019 May 07
I was given the option through Kayak to book this car for a time that the rental place literally WAS NOT OPEN. When I went to pick up the car the place was closed so I had to call Hertz customer service, demand a refund (which will take up to two weeks to be refunded to my card) and go to Enterprise

Front desk guy was professional, friendly and thorough.Those underground drop-off locations are always a little dicey.
8.8 Excellent2019 Jul 30
Staff was good, location was good, parking for my vehicle was available and reasonably priced. The vehicle was in perfect condition and the late drop provision was very easy.I reserved a minivan very specifically, because I needed that size of vehicle. When I picked it up though, they did not have any minivans at all. They said my options were either a Suburban or a Ford Flex. I reserved a van because I needed a van. It didn’t really work that well, but we made do.

I didn't end up picking up the car because the Avis office closed at 6the office was closed at 6:00pm and I was supposed to pickup at 5:00pm but arrived late. There was no closing time info on the booking information. I ended up having to cancel and get a ride from someone to the event.

I will never use it againNothingRental fee ended up being 4 or 5 times expected payment on Kayak. Never use it again and never recommend this place for anyone.
