Booked online outside of airport terminal and walked in and picked up car. Whole process start to finish took about 15 minutes. Filled up at service station by airport and dropped car off and left keys in the lock box which took about 1 minute of my valuable time. Seamless process.

Car features were nice!I don't rent often. The car had iPlay and a touchscreen built in which made it very easy to navigate and make phone calls with my iphone. Car happened to be brand new with 10km.

Halifax Car rental online specialThe price was lower than other deals, even Costco, who I normally use.We arrived at the Halifax airport in the evening, around 9pm. I booked online and when I received my receipt, I noted it said "specialty car". I called the Halifax Airport Alamo to find out what this meant. She said likely a smaller SUV...not a van or larger car. When we got there , a very bossy, unfriendly clerk said, you get whatever I have left. You might even get a pick up. When I told her I had called ahead for clarification, and what I was advised, she said" that's wrong, she should never have said that, I will have to speak to them at the meeting..." Very loud and rude person. Did not like her service. She was also very short to a customer who was booking with National, and the service person was not at their counter, and she said over here, see the sign, THIS is National get in line! But the car - a Buick SUV was great, and ran perfectly. It was great for sightseeing, with excellent visibility and good power.

Having a car available would have helped and not having to go to Hertz and pay 3x as much since the car I reserved through Kayak with Budget wasn't there - this despite phoning ahead.
10.0 Excellent2019 Oct 02
The staff was very friendly, especially having to pick up the car at midnight. I was happy to find the staff readily available.I wish I had been aware of the check in process to return the car, not that it was a problem at all, but just so that I could have been prepared to simply drop the car off without having to go to the desk.

I have no suggestions for improvement. The staff were efficient and very helpful.

The only thing I did not like was that i was charged an additional $7.00 for an air conditioning fee. This should be included with the base price.Air conditioning comes with the vehicle when the car is manufactured. I then asked for a car without air conditioning; they do not have any such car. Money grab big time (ridiculous). DJ.

My rental was upgraded as cars were a bit late being turned in. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I had to wait a bit for the vehicle but it worked out ok.
10.0 Excellent2021 Jul 27
Liked: A new car ! This does not happen every day, but I was pleased to find a brand new (71km on the odo) 2021 Toyota Corolla. The vehicle exceeded my expectations for comfort and convenience. Not so much: the policy of requiring extra $ for 2nd driver who is on the same insurance policy.
8.0 Excellent2020 Mar 24
YesThe advertised price was $32 per day - no mention of insurance. When I collected the car I paid over $80. Insurance alone was $42. These hidden charges are bad. $80 per day for a car is excessive.
9.6 Excellent2018 Sep 18
The car I paid for (full size) was not available in Halifax, NS Canada. They gave me a mini-van which worked fine. Lots of additional fees.

Easy to drive, comfortable. Some blind spots but what car doesn’t have those?! Getting car was a cinch and same with return.Can’t think of anything.

Great rideMy rental was a nice upgrade to an XTS, quick turn around at the counter once talking to counter staff.A little backed up, busy weekend but seemed a little distracted by challenging rentals and as a result waited for 20 minutes before getting my rental picked up.

I liked the fact that the Hyundai was an SUV and had good visibility and road clearance.There were some controls on the SUV that weren't intuitive and took some time to understand

It was advertised for $105 and I eneded up paying $358 with taxes and insurance.

Unfortunately the car was extremely hard on fuel despite asking for an economy. I drove only 60 km on the highway with no traffic and it cost over $20 to refuel. The car did not run well, you could feel it shifting every gear like there was something wrong with it and it was an automatic. Other than that, it was okay. Their staff are very friendly.

UpgradeWe had a reservation for a compact car, and were offered an upgrade to a larger car at no charge. Had a Hyundai Sonata, very nice car with good fuel economy.We arrived at Halifax airport late (9:30 PM), and called the number. No answer. Waited about 10 minutes, called again, go someone to pick us up. Staff should have headsets to be able to answer phone wherever they are, to avoid panic attacks by customers.
7.6 Good2017 Jun 15
Good car rental in Canada but beware of excess insuranceCar was good fitted with satnav fitted and we received an upgradeRental company would not accept vehicle excess insurance which had been purchased, so we had to take full insurance with the rental company which was more expensive and then claim a refund on the external policy

Yes the staff was helpful and polite. Most notably the return was exceptionally quick and easy.More counter help. The customer in front of me asked EVERY question imaginable and some that were unimaginable and then of course the attendant was trying to up sell. Sorry but the last thing you want to do after a long day of traveling is to wait in line unnecessarily. Once they got done our transaction went smoothly and we were on our way.

Staff at Halifax were excellent.The two telephone reps ( from Timbuck2) did not do anything they were asked to do even though they acknowledged they did. Vehicle was smaller than advertised even though the disclaimer may have shown that. Our vehicle was not similar to a Chev Tahoe by any standard.
