Someone at the office between noon and 5 pm on a Sunday.

YesIt wasn't really obvious from my paperwork that we had to call for the shuttle to come pick us up at the airport. The number could be more "front and centre" on the reservation paper. Luckily, someone else on our flight was renting with them and had already called the number.

Not open late enough.Good service. Picked up from airport. Great price too.Close too early. Had to take a cab From the airport to hotel because they were closed. Had to cab back the next day when they were open. Returned car and then had to take a cab to airport. Too inconvenient.

They did not deliver the vehicle I booked. I carefully reviewed all the different vehicle types presented to me as "available" at the time of booking, several days before my trip. Because bad weather was forecast, I selected a compact SUV. When I arrived, I was told my selected vehicle was in fact no longer available, and instead, a low-clearance compact Toyota Corolla would be substituted. The explanation was "it's been a crazy day" and that other customers had shown up and rented almost every vehicle they had. What does a vehicle "reservation" mean to Alamo if they're going to rent my booked vehicle out from under me to someone that turns up at the counter?

I had to extend the rental 2 times Rather than just being able to phone in and update the account I had to drive to the airport each time and basically create a new rental each time Secondly they could t extend the damage deposit so basically had two holds on my card at the same time as the initial damage deposit was held for up to 5 business days

Attendant at pick up was not very welcoming. Was surprised that we had to pay an extra fee for my spouse to drive the car. Since we share family insurance, this does not seem to make sense. For this reason we will not rent from this agency again.

The rental agency was easy to find and convenient to the airport. The vehicle was nice and clean and well-maintained. The staff outside in the lot were punctual and helpful.There was quite a wait to begin our process.The return of the rental car was very time consuming more so than at any other city we have ever rented a vehicle in.

Not much at all I liked about this experienceIt was a car rental in Edmonton Alberta. they gave us a BC plate car. it was also during a snow storm in November, no winter tires, windshield washers didn't work, gadgets on the screen kept flashing up. worst car rental experience I have ever had.

keep your original confirmation email and price given!Car was fine. Heater worked fast and well. Comfortable and easy to drive.There was a discrepancy between kayak price of $84C and their invoice of $96C returned two hours early. Asian fellow at Hertz/Thrifty desk was rude and didn’t know what he was doing and put me through finding photos of the kayak info and the old email and confirmation etc and then he ended up passing item off to a female agent who got it all fixed and charged me the original Kayak price agreed on. Anxiety over missing the allowed time to get our luggage put through... the whole thing was not my fault but ended up looking like I was the one doing something wrong!!!

Opening hour, easy to get and drop from airport.The winter tires didn't included by default in the rent! In Canada during the winter, it's impossible. I needed to add 20$/day extra cost. So I double the amount of my rent. The car was no smoking car. But I never drive a car with an heavy smoke smelt inside like this! The next time I come back to change the car before left the parking! So keep no smoke in no smoking cars!

No surprise fees, the car was nearby, and it worked great.Sometimes I wish car rental companies had small photos of all the cars in their fleet so that I wouldn't have to start googling what a certain model looked like to remind myself if given the option between different vehicles.

Free upgrade was nice. The staff was very friendly.The extra insurance at $50.00 per day seemed a little steep.
7.2 Good2019 Sep 02
The staff was helpful and conveniently located at the airport location.The agent wanted to up sell to a larger model as they wanted the smaller SUVs for other customers. I was OK with that if it was a free upgrade, but they wanted to charge me for it.

Awfull service. I booked my car for pick up at 1 am, my plane landed at 1 15 and I was at the desk at 1 25 to find it closed. I walked around the parking lot and called the 1800 number to find out the close the desk at 1 am, and they blamed me for not putting my flight information on my reservation.Dont book with hertz Edmonton if you are going to arrive after middnight, or you migh find yourself sleeping at the airport waiting for them to open at 6 am and even then they wont even say "Sorry" all I got was you were here after 1am.... I am sure I would never use them again. Companies got to big

staff were great. pick up was easy and drop off took less than 2 minutes, Can was better than advertised. Passat trunk was HUGEThe airport location fee that was added to the daily rental (after the advertised daily rate on the Kayak search engine) was a disappointing shock. would appreciate a true total cost to be shown in the searches up front

Excellent service right from the start. Tracy & her staff are amazing. I would recommend them to everyone that is going to Edmonton. It’s only a 5 min drive to the airport but worth it. After dealing with them I will only book with them whenever I need to go to Edmonton. Thank you Tracy fir the great service. It was a pleasure dealing with you. Danny & Laura

Service is decent.Windshield deductible of $100 after paying $7.99 makes no sense for one rock chip. We know they will just repair the windshield until it actually cracks. It's the first car rental that's ever hit me with an additional insurance and $100 charge thereafter for a rock chip. Overall a bad experience.

I usually rent with enterprise but they didn't have the type of vehicle I needed so I went with Avis. In the past Avis over charged me (see Vegas review) but this time there were absolutely no billing issues and their checkout process was the fastest I'd ever had at YEG. It wasn't the cheapest rental but Edmonton has unusually high rental prices in general.

Drop off was awful! No signs where to take car. Finally found a tiny sign to drive to the 7th fl of garage. No attendant around. Spent 20 minutes walking around offices to find someone.

Avis drop off Banff downtown is a nightmare for stressNice vehicle. TeasonableDowntown drop off location was impossible due to lack of deatails, signage, traffic no where to stop. Deatailed directions for complicated drop off downtown should be provided. Alternative location should be provided with directions

Avis wouldn't honor the confirmed rental rateBooked a Tahoe online and when we went to pick up the car and was signing all the documents, noticed the price was more than 4 times the price. I showed them my confirmation but the time my just told me there must have been an issue with the booking site. There was no mention of this before I was about to sign and they would not honor the confirmed price I had so I left and went to Alamo who gave me a great deal. Thank you Alamo. Last time booking Avis

A lovely tripScheduled my pickup from the airport for 11, but they did not have a car ready ( I was 10 minutes early as my flight was ahead of schedule) I was upgraded to a B class car and loved it! May have changed my mind on wanting to purchase a jeep because I loved the Chevy Malibu so much. My first time renting a car, and was very pleased.I wasn't offered any kind of km deal, which is fine, but it would have been nice if there was a package since it is roughly 400 kms from Edmonton to Jasper

Fast & convenient & no BS .Speak up and drop off Was very fast and nobody tried to sell me any think.I consider $760 for a smal suv without insurance a bit pricey but didn't had a choice at the moment.

Very quick drop off. Friendly representative.
4.8 Okay2016 Jul 17
Although the drop off was to be attended until 7pm, there was no one in the kiosk when we arrived at the airport well before 7. We went inside, the desk clerk took our paperwork and that was it. Upon return home, we had a phone message stating there was a scratch on the car and to call, but we could make out neither the name or the phone # of the guy who called. We called the only # we had for Avis in Edmonton and told them, we were unaware of any damage that occurred while we had the car. Hopefully there inquiry will show earlier damage, but both garages where we picked up & dropped off were dark, & no one accompanied us either place to look over the car.

quote was completely wrongWhen I went to pick up the car, I discovered the quote I'd been given through Carrentals was impossible price and the car rental place couldn't honour it. It was a shock after a long journey and I didn't accept the rental. I can't understand what the benefit is to anyone to give too-good-to-be-true quotes which can't be honoured. Who wins?
