Although it was the cheapest price - the service was very poor. When I rented - I was just pointed in the general direction of the parking lot and told what slot it was in! Really? It is a big lot & it was raining and I have never been to Kelowna before! I realize staff is in short supply but I actually worked for Hertz many many years ago and know how it is supposed to work! Please improve your service!!

When I picked up the car in Kelowna the car was dirty on the outside due to the environmental ashes from near by forest fires. I blame no one for that as it is understandable. The agent told me to do the walk around of the vehicle on my own and if there were any damages to report back. I did the walk around and did not notice any marks or scratches on it. When I returned the vehicle the agent noticed a scratch on the vehicle. I do not know if it was already there as I did not recall scratching myself either. For this I have been charged an extra fee. I understand these things happen but I wish the car had been cleaner on pickup so I could have determined whether it was previously there or not .

Was very easy to rent. From pick up to drop off, only spent 25 minutes for both transactions. No hassles

Easy to get carI got a lower class of vehicle than I rented and paid for
6.4 Good2019 Sep 02
Everything was great except for the items listed in the next section.The taxes had to be paid at pickup, and due to the location being at the airport, were quite high (airport improvement tax). During booking, I was not made aware of these taxes, so they were a big surprise, being over $100.

When I arrived at the airport kiosk to pick up my rental vehicle I had misjudged the time of arrival and my flight came in early so when I went to get my rental I was told that because I was an hour early I could have my car but would have to pay an extra 45.00! Not acceptable.

Easy renting it @ the airport, friendly staffThe walk to & from the terminal. Also no one to show me different features such as turning off & on wipers, how to work the sun roof, didn't know there was a lever in the car to release the fuel door. Twice the vehicle I wanted wasn't there.

Great overall experienceQuick service - nice, clean and good car.Considering i was driving in the Kootrnays i really wish i had snow tires on! Some very dangerous driving and the tires were all seasons - not ideal for high mountain driving.
6.8 Good2017 Nov 20
Check the tires carefullyNice vehicle, leather, heated seats and steering wheel and automatic start and lightsThe tires were awful. I was to go over mountain passes and insisted on winter tires. With only a couple of cars left they did give me their AWD and they said the tires were rated as mud/snow they were bald. Scary on the passes!!!

New car...that was hybrid when idling. Nice size, comfortable seats, and very professional people helping out at start, finish, and when we had the problem with the balancing of the wheels. Thank you!The only problem we had was related to the balancing of the wheels. I think that when the winter tires were exchanged for the summer ones, the balancing should have been done a bit more carefully. We lost part of a day while we waited for the wheels to be balanced when it became a problem one week in to the trip. Maybe something to do with lugs too?? Oh...and the fob didn't work when we were going on to the ferry! Fortunately, it started to work again! A bit stressful!

Terribly misleading car typeI was told i would get a nissan altima or similar, i ended up with a hulking, gas guzzling ford van, verging on a shuttle bus. Very disappointing.

Very friendly, uncomplicated staff.Poor selection of vehicles. Ended up with a 4 cylinder Patriot which was screaming most of the time due to the lack of power. Therefore used around 15 liters per 100km. Rather drive a V8 and at least be able to drive relaxed...

Payment issues on pickupThe actual car was fine. Well equipped for the conditions i drove it in.At pickup the counter worker could not process the car on my visa for some reason and blamed my card for the problem. We tried another card from mastercard and same problem. Then we tried a third card a visa and it worked. Seems like their system only likes certain cards from certain banks. So bring a few cards with you!

The older gentlemen that work the shuttles were very kind and friendly. That is where the positive experience ends.Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.
