Not pleased at all!
Pros: Nothing... they didn't have my reservation so I didn't get a car!
Cons: I went to the counter and they said they didn't have my reservation. The airport was packed so.there were no free cars available so I had to take a taxi. Not very happy! I sure hope I didn't end up getting charged!

Cons: See my complaint. This is a very serious system defect that involved serious oversights of both Hertz and the sales agent. However, Hertz is primary responsible as they cannot allow two separate retailers to compete without coordination for fly in customers. The sales agent is also seriously at fault as they have serious defects in their internet web software.

Poor customer service, Poor communication, Poor advice
Cons: Called contact center to see if possible to change pickup location without changing any other aspect of order and if not to leave as was. Put on hold half hour, transferred to someone who had seemed to think wanted to place new order, transferred back but that person suddenly was feeling very ill and couldn't continue call but i would be "called back". Never contacted, checked online and lucky i did as apparently my reservation was now cancelled but had no notifications. Called back, apparently this person couldn't actually access the order but said was still there, transferred, this person did confirm was cancelled, reprocessed at a higher price. When picked up, didn't know i was coming, I asked SPECIFICALLY if car had winter tires as they are a legal requirement in the area i was going to at this point in the year. Told all weather tires were the same thing. Hit heavy snow in the high mountain passes - Those tyres are not the same at all. Ended up in a dangerous situation because Hertz had not adhered to the local laws and outfitted their cars appropriately. A terrible experience from start to finish.

I needed to go outside of airport to pick up the car.
Pros: Staff there were awesome and helpful. Which was outside of air port.
Cons: I booked for yvr airport location. Car was rented 5 mils from airport. Person at herz on airport location was rude. She said I need to pay $50 extra a day if I want to rent car from airport location. So I needed to take taxi to go to another location. I would say you should not trust herz at airport location in future.

Only one agent
Pros: The car was is good condition, clean and performed well.
Cons: There was only one agent on duty at 10:00 AM on Friday morning when a two cruise ships docked. It took over an hour for her to process all the people wanting to rent cars. She was definitely overworked, and doing the best she could, but the line was very long and the hour wait was not acceptable.

Never again
Cons: Booked a vehicle to pick up AT airport, turns out it was not at the airport but 20 minute train ride into downtown Vancouver. I booked to pick up the vehicle at 3 pm, however the downtown location closed at 3 pm and left us with a dark desk and no way to find a vehicle. When I booked it, the online page should have warned me that that particular office closed at 3 pm. No calls were made to us to find out if we were on our way or what had happened. Luckily a gentleman at the convention center onsite helped us find the last vehicle for rent in the area and we paid more and got a tiny car, but it was a vehicle and we did not have to stay the night in Vancouver. Being such a large company, I would think the website would have warned me that our pick up time and the closing time were the same and I would have researched further. Won't ever book with Alamo again.

Try to hand over compact after booking full size
Cons: Booked a full size. They never told me they don't have one. When I go to parking lot, they hand me over a compact (still without telling me). When I ask for full size, the day we will "UPGRADE" you to minivan. Sorry, that's not an upgrade and you could have at least told me that you don't have car I won't.

Super Efficient & Friendly
Pros: Convenient to ship disembarkation for pickup, helpful staff both at pickup and drop off. My mom has difficulty walking, so the agent at pickup brought the car to us. At drop off, she needed to use a restroom and an agent escorted her to it. We had an upgraded car, and it was new and clean. We got lost on the way to the airport for drop off, so we were a little late, but they didn't charge us extra. An excellent experience all around!

Great service
Pros: Easy pick up right at the port after our cruise. Thankfully we were later getting off the ship so there was no line when we went to pick up our car. Easy directions given to return car to SeaTac and ease of getting out of garage without having to pay for it.
Cons: The garage you pick up the vehicle in is dark so it is a bit hard to examine the car prior to picking up. But would not deter me from renting from them again.

It was a fake. The agency does not exist anymore.
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: I had to find a car the day of my arrival after i had enterprise on the phone explaining that this agency close to the airport no longer exists. Afeter 40$ for a taxi, I had to pay 2400$ for an SUV in emergency. You should verify what is on your website. Hope you will do something regarding my disappointment and these fake ad(s).

29 Mar. 2018
Cons: The worst part of the deal is that the location of the rental was not at the airport, as I thought, since I did the search looking for rentals at the international airport of Vancouver. Enterprise did not honor the price of my reservation using kayak. Finally, my reservation was for a Grant Cherokee or similar, and our only choice at the end was a cherokee compass (they offer a minivan, but that was totally inappropriate for our trip). Car was fine but a little small, considering we were 4 people with luggage. Overall very disappointing.

I cancelled the rental and will NEVER use your service or Carrentals.com again.

Pros: Overall we lived how easy it was to book, and how smoothly we received the vehicle on both pickup and drop-off
Cons: A lot of hidden costs. They don't tell you about the insurance but that's an extra 25$ a day, or the bond that they hold for 2 weeks until you're picking the vehicle up. Wasn't a huge deal for us however, for those not expecting it, make sure you bring an extra 800$ for extra costs. We also received a car that had a pretty noticeable scrape/dent along the side.

Pros: Price is what hooked me but, it still wasn’t worth it. The shuttle drivers, to & from the airport, were very friendly.
Cons: Check out process was a bit intimidating, super detailed inspection with focus on front fascia and wheels. Hard sell on insurance which in light of the aforementioned inspection, made me uneasy like this may be a scam. I declined their insurance as I carry my own coverage. They charged my credit card a $500 deposit, not a hold but an actual charge (it has since been credited back but the fees they must be paying for this). The whole inspection, insurance, credit card charge process weighed on my mind the whole trip; I could hardly wait to return the car. Check in, same detailed inspection, no issues. Car was not washed, inside was vacuumed but, the outside was just hosed off. There was no windshield washer fluid which I needed for the road conditions on the trip up to Whistler. Will not use Economy again.

Don’t rent from them!! They bait and switch
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I reserved a full size SUV and received a mid-size SUV that we didn’t fit in!! They said that the advertisement online was incorrect..... yeah right ... they advertised a Armada which is a big SUV and said they don’t even have those cars. They gave me a Ford Explorer and wanted to charge me an extra $30 a day for winter tires... what a joke. They refunded me $70 for a week rental that would have cost $150-$175 less for that size car from another company but I was stuck with them since they are off-site from the airport and they picked us up in one of their mini vans — that don’t have a dedicated shuttle.

Cons: To compete with the big companies they could be better at streamlining pick up and drop off since they are offsite. Technology could really enhance that. Uniforms project professionalism. It is these points that could really enhance their business.

Top tips for hiring a car in Vancouver

  • The North Shore mountain range provides a picture perfect backdrop to the city of Vancouver -- visiting them during your travels is a must. Renting a car will give you the ability to access the mountain range and a long list of adventure activities. Having a car will give you the ability to go skiing or snowboarding on the world-renowned Cypress Mountain, or explore the spectacular views that hikes across Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour have to offer.
  • Picking up a hire car at Vancouver International Airport (VIA) could not be simpler; hire company counters are located next to the baggage claim at both the Main and South terminals. VIA is conveniently located only 9 miles from downtown and you will arrive after approximately 30 minutes of driving.
  • Distances and speed limits are measured in kilometers throughout Canada, so be careful and adjust your driving to suit. Vancouver has numerous flashing green traffic lights, which mean you have the right to drive through the intersection but must approach cautiously and yield to pedestrians who may be crossing. Many cyclists are present on Vancouver roads, so it’s important to keep an active eye on your blind spots. Keep in mind that across the city there are some roads with separated bike lanes and roads where lanes are shared; be mindful in both situations to provide cyclists with a safe amount of room.
  • Like most major cities, rush hour in Vancouver can be frustrating and it is wise to avoid major arterial roads or driving altogether between 5 pm and 7 pm. Traffic can be especially bad on West Georgia Street in the evening and it is advisable to seek an alternative route. Also keep in mind that the bridges of Vancouver, such as the Alex Fraser, can clog up with congestion during peak times and, due to their narrow entries and exits, take a long time to open up again.
