Super friendly staff who hooked me up with a complementary upgrade which instantly made my trip 100% more pleasurable and I'm not even exaggerating! Highly recommend Hertz, thank you!Nothing at, it was a textbook perfect customer service experience.

staff was helpful when i asked to upgrade the car - needed something biggerthe vehicle that I was given when i first arrived to hertz, looked considerably smaller than the type of vehicle i had originally rented...thus the need for the upgrade need to show a full list of all vehicles for each category (ie: list all vehicles that are considered economy, intermediate,...)

Everything was good except they mixed up my rental paper work with another person whose last name was also Taylor. They were trying to sort it out but needed a manager's code or something. So they said they'd email my receipt but I haven't seen it yet. It's been 6 days!Just being more careful with the paper work and emailing my receipt.

Customer service agent was great! She deserves all the credit for this excellent review. 30 years experience - she knows that job inside and out and should be a trainer. I was met in the lot for the return and it was processed in less than a minute. I also received a free upgrade. I don’t know if all Hertz locations have such great service but I would not hesitate to recommend them at the Winnipeg airport.

Wowed in WinnipegWhen I gave the rep my confirmation number I was told it belonged to someone else. She said she had cars available and honoured the rate listed in my confirmation email. It really made my day as I had been travelling all day and my luggage had gotten lost and I wanted at that point was to get to my hotel and go to bed.The only thing I would change are the hours of operation, but I get that Winnipeg isn’t exactly a “24 hour” city.

Great!Clean, quick, good price
9.2 Excellent2017 May 27
Was easy to book online. My car was ready when I arrived and picking it up was quick and easy.There is a charge to pick up the car in Winnipeg and drop it off in Brandon; which I expected and knew about. This was the most expensive part of my rental. If this could cost less that would be great. :-)
9.6 Excellent2016 Aug 30
Great value for a one way rentalThe only negative is that it took 48hrs after dropping the car off to get the final invoice.
6.4 Good2016 Jul 14
Extended hoursNo communication. Called to asked if I was going to get charged more for returning the car late and the response was will figure it out when you get here!

$10 a day for an extra driver - come on!Friendly staffJust rented a car from Avis in Edmonton - no fee if either my husband or I drove. Enterprise in Winnipeg wanted $10 a day. Felt a little ripped off. :(

The car was horrible, was not the car I wanted to rent and it did not had navigation.

Was offered a complimentary upgrade to a vehicle with a GPS/SatNav. They could have had more staff on duty at pick-up as the wait time was quite long.

When we got to the counter to get our car they didn't have the car I had rented, we were up graded to a way nicer car. 👍

Brittany was the agent we dealt with at WPG airport and she was fabulous, extremely efficient and pleasant. There was a line up and needed to wait a hit for a car, out of her control, yet she handled it with ease - very impressive! The car was very clean and had been well taken car of, will use Dollar and Kayak again.

Helpful StaffThe individual who took the check-in was very helpful in seeing that I was happy with the vehicle, and knew what to do with an after-hours return of the car, with a chit to pay for a cab ride to the airport. Everything went as advertised.

Originally rented a Kia, upgraded to Golf @ airport for $5 more.Car needed servicing. Low Coolant light came on several times (looked under hood, it was very low, but there was a little coolant left). Also, ran out of washer fluid after the 4th or 5th use
10.0 Excellent2017 Aug 27
Handy and FriendlyThe staff was very helpful and friendly! It was a quick process to rent the car and the drop off process. The cars are close by to the airport which is great when you have lots of bags and kids!I never like all the additional charges when you show up to get the car. This is not specific to Payless. Our guys was not pushy which was nice.

Good value for moneyBest price I could find, the replacement car I got was brand newWhen picking up the car they didn't have the car size I had reserved, the company representative tried to put me in a smaller car which was unsuitable for my needs, it took me sometime to convince him that I could not settle for his proposal and that I would expect from him to upsize the vehicle at no additional cost instead of downsizing at the same rate. Eventually he somehow found a proper size car which worked well but had a coolant level warning light come on intermittently while driving. I reported this problem after it had appeared a few times and was asked to bring the car in and exchange it for another. Needless to say I did not appreciate the "welcome treatment" I had received. Other than that everything worked out fine

The car got incredible gas mileage. It was a great car and we were very happy with this rental and the whole process of pickup and dropoff was very easy.

Process is labor intensive, both for the agent and for the customer.PriceHad to wait in line not once, but twice, only one agent for multiple customers. Payless was managed by Avis/Budget personnel. Seemed to be a low priority. Would not rent from them again in this location.

Top tips for renting a car at Winnipeg Airport

  • Ideally, you’d like to travel everywhere in your personal car for privacy and comfort. But you left your own vehicle at home and flew into Winnipeg. A car rental at Winnipeg Airport should give you a similar experience to riding in your car. That way, you can get to your planned destinations without the trouble of coordinating meet-up points or multiple bus rides. If you are traveling with kids, forget the stress of carrying child-safety seats because most car rental companies at YWG have this option to let the little ones ride safely. Just make reservations in advance and have everything ready as soon as you alight from the plane.
  • When on a group trip, of say 7-8 people, a compact car may be too small to accommodate everyone. But don’t worry because Winnipeg Airport car rental offers minivans to accommodate multiple passengers and their pieces of luggage. A larger group of 12-15 could use a passenger van. SUV rentals are popular options for driving up steep hills. Choose from upgrades and crossover sizes in either luxury or economy class. When space and power are a priority, rent a premium or elite SUV.
  • After flying into YWG, look for the rental counters inside the passenger terminal. Some car counters are on level 4 of the parking garage. Show the attendants your documents and take the car keys. Your reserved vehicle should be within walking distance of the terminal. Follow the directions and note the exact parking lot if you have chosen the same location for returns. When the trip is over, record the mileage and the amount of fuel used on the paperwork. You don’t need to line up at the counter to give back the document and car keys. Simply drop them in the return box and wait for a closed agreement to be mailed to you.
  • Normally, road traffic in Winnipeg starts to build up from 7.30 am and may overflow into the airport’s main road. The congestion dies down at around 9 am, so plan your pick-up anytime outside the morning rush. If you will be returning the vehicle later in the day, avoid the evening rush from 3.30 pm-5.30 pm. The speed limit around Winnipeg International Airport is 30 mph, so be patient when dropping off and picking up a car rental at Winnipeg Airport.
  • Book your rental car at Winnipeg Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
