This company is okayPros:The price is very good, and the staff was friendly. They even called the night before to see what time I landed and asked for my flight info going over what their pickup process was going to be.Cons:This company takes a while to pick you up and get you to their offsite location (20-30 min) which is a small room inside a hotel. The car didn’t have enough windshield washing fluid which could have made the trip up the mountains very dangerous if I didn’t catch it while I was still near civilization. They were very picky while checking the condition of the car with me. Had me use my phone flashlight as it was dark out so they could write down ever scratch and chip on the body (and there ended up being a considerable amount) which makes me glad that I took the insurance (who knows if they missed a tiny scratch?) The vehicle was past due on an oil change for over 2,000 km at the time of pick up. My reservation was for a Toyota rav 4 or similar ( I love Toyota’s) and their only options were a dodge pickup truck, or 3 types of kia’s.Reviewed 2018 Nov 14

Good servicePros:Good value and the 3 staff members I dealt with were professional and very nice and friendly. The off-site location is easy to find and access so it's nice to have shuttle pick up/ drop off at door and not have to drag my own baggage from terminal to car rental location at airport. (I didn't need to use their shuttle service after arrival as I rented car second day onto trip, only for return). First time renting from this company and have rebooked for next trip. Had found a great rate online with another rental company prior and they were able to beat that rate. Will see how well shuttle service works. Be sure to have their phone number handy when you arrive.Cons:The pick up and drop off location are not at airport however they do provide shuttle service. Had I not shown up with excessive time to get to airport I could have been late. Ended up sharing shuttle with a couple with a lot of baggage (they were moving) and there was barely enough room for all of us in shuttle van.Reviewed 2017 Sep 28

Decent off airport rentalPros:Price, the mostly stock Jeep Wranglers, so you may be lucky to get a very cheap upgrade.Cons:It was a 10 - 15 ride from the airport. Their hours are 8 - 8 so make sure you have accurate hours on your reservation, They use shuttle bay number 6 near door number 2 at the Calgary airport. It takes a few mins for them to get there, and it also takes quite a while if you drop off the car at 8am to get a ride back to the airport. Other than that, we had an awesome experience!Reviewed 2015 Oct 14

Cons:Shuttle never showed up at airport to pick up because my pickup time was close to closing. Reservation had incorrect phone for car rental place. Number was to a local hotel, therefore getting direct contact with car rental was a hassle. Had to book a car with different company at airport.Reviewed 2019 May 06

Pros:The car was nice and clean.Cons:The pickup was a hassle. Per the booking the location was in the Airport. In reality you had to call a shuttle to come pick you up which ate time out of my vacation.Reviewed 2017 Aug 14

Pros:It's honestly hard for me to think of something I liked. The lady who picked us up from the airport was nice. Overall it was horrible.Cons:It says they are at the airport, but they are actually 20 minutes from the airport, after you have to wait 20-30 minutes for them to pick you up. Coming back to the airport you need to factor in at least an hour because they only have one small shuttle and you do not know where it will be in route.Reviewed 2019 Jun 17

Rip off. I will be contacing the BBB about this rePros:NothingCons:The quoted price didn't match the current price. The posted location was close to airport, in reality it was 20 minute wait for shuttle then a 25 minute ride to a remote location. The extra charges at pick up was exhortation, $500 deposit for windshield $10 per day out of province fee.Reviewed 2015 Nov 16
