Great location for pickup in the cityPros:Great location, good prices. Employees were very helpful and kind.Cons:Chevy Cruz is not a great car to drive, I should have asked for something different. I paid for the Garmin GPS and it was very slow to bring up searches. It was helpful while driving on the road but clunky and not very intuitive on took us to a market when we searched for fuel.Reviewed 26 Oct. 2015

Great experiencePros:Customer service was excellent, the car was a Chevy Sonic which I'd never driven before - I loved it. Pick up and drop off process was easy and fast.Reviewed 25 Apr. 2017

Quick check-in and return, good pricePros:Quick check-in and return, good priceCons:I've chosen to use an external insurance company as Kayak offered, but the attendant on the Budget location, made me sign a document confirming that I do not wish to be insured and if anything happens with the car, I'll be the solely responsible for all the damage. I was very worried about it during the role rental period. Next time I'll choose the rental company own insurance.Reviewed 9 Feb. 2016

Great car, poor service and dropoffPros:The car was new, well-maintained, clean, and upgraded from the one we reserved.Cons:The customer service was rude at times and hid behind "company policies" when asked simple questions. The drop off location took us nearly two hours round trip out of the way (we were told there were no others available). My wife and I were very surprised to learn some of Budget's policies, such as the fee mandated for rental car pickup if you have been in the city (Vancouver) for less than 24 hours. As expected, they required a credit card for a holding charge; however, they would not accept my credit card, but my wife's, which was at the hotel. Yes, she was the primary driver, but it's the same account and just a hold, not a charge. Unnecessary hassle if you ask me.Reviewed 23 Jun. 2016

wayyyy to much upsellingPros:car was clean. it was somewhat cheap i guess. the manager was nice.Cons:the guy at counter keeps upselling and really pressure me into buying and upgrading more stuffs imstead of helping. I felt stressed out after exiting the place after saying no like a thousand times.Reviewed 22 Jun. 2016

Hidden / Surprise FeesPros:Car and service were ok overallCons:A surprise $50 fee for dropping off at the airport vs. Downtown. This was not disclosed at time of rental and tripled the cost of my rental. It feels like bait and switch. Other websites do disclose all fees.Reviewed 19 Oct. 2015

Fair valuePros:Since there were several of us it worked out to be the same price as a bus or shuttle to Squamish, with the added convenience of stopping whenever you liked to take in the sights. Conveniently located with what appears to be a well managed drop off system.Reviewed 14 Jun. 2017

Great location with good servicePros:The location is downtown next to the bus center, very convenient if you're staying downtown.Reviewed 7 Oct. 2016

Better than expectedPros:Reviews read on other sites were very critical. I went ahead and booked anyway and it was super easy. Clean car, friendly staff, and super easy. Would do again!Cons:There's a charge (17%) if you landed at the airport within 24 hrs. I should've said it was more than 24 hrs because they didn't check anyway.Reviewed 5 Dec. 2016

Nice car, easy pick up, cost was a surprisePros:Everything about this went smoothly except for the final cost.Cons:That my bill was proposed to be $49 per day, and it was $63 in the end because of additional costs. That's a big difference. It would be nice to know about all the add-on fees ahead of time.Reviewed 15 Jul. 2016

An ok exprience but I have had way much betterPros:It fits what I bookedCons:Personnel was kind of not friendly .. more on the rude side I didn't receive electronically my bill, thus I am planning to call to make sure all is ok. Plus my bank shows that the 350 deposit is still there,, not impressed to be honest.Reviewed 29 May 2017
