You people gave me a price of $207.00 for the full 4 days. I returned it early on the 3rd day and it costed $254.00 for 3 days. You people are not very accurate in your estimates. I was pleased however that through a secondary vendor I was able to get a car when calling them directly yielded zero results. For that i thank you kindly. For the price however, I was very disappointed when I went to pick up the car only to find out that their cost to me was $335.00 over the 4 days I had reserved for. Tsk Tsk Tsk!

The first car had no air conditioning. It would have been nice to roll with being a Camry. The next given was a Charger GT. I asked why the tires were pumped up 10+ lbs. over. The rep had no plausible answer except to say that his guys in the garage read the wrong number. The car rode like a buckboard and would have been unsafe in the rain given the reduced contact patch as a result.

Friendly stuffBe more open about insurance coverage, as I was not told that I am responsible for full vehicle because I don't have Canadian driver licence. Had I not asked for confirmation, I would not have known that at the time, Also, overbooking of the vehicles is a real issue, although I did get a vehicle.

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 Rep or Salesman??There was a person available when i walked in. My reservation was on file. Drop off at the airport was easThey didn't have the car i wanted and tried to put me in a compact SUV?!?! I found out after the fact that the second driver was not added to the file. The CSR at the initial location was proven to have been incompetent and given bad information that could have been very costly for us.

Perfect services, without any doubts or worriesI really liked AVIS services! I got a car (Winnipeg, Canada) within 5 minutes, washed and 100% fueled. The same thing is drop-off. Really nice personal and prices are goodI needed additional two hours of rent, but I paid for whole additional day. Really, I thought I can get a little gift :) I am waiting for final bill, let's see if there will not be any surprises

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

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

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.

The vehicle is extremely dirty, stains on seat, used mask, McDonald’s, dirt, animals hairs, the worst vehicle in terms of cleanliness. Very disgusting. During the pandemic, can you believe what Budget is doing? No safety measurement at all.
5.9 Okay17 Sep. 2021
The location of the car rental company (Budget) was not particulary obvious, and the staff provided incorrect information about drop off times. I arrived to drop the car off after they were already closed even though the staff at the time of pick up advised me that the location would be open when I had scheduled to return the vehicle. The key return / drop off bin was also not clearly marketed and I was unsure if I was returning the keys in the correct location.

Car hire excess insurance in Winnipeg

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Winnipeg car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Winnipeg.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Winnipeg car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Winnipeg

  • Renting a car is highly advised if you are visiting Winnipeg, as the city is truly best explored by car, especially because public transport is limited to a bus service in the city. Some of the great day trip options available to visitors with a car include Pembina Valley, Spruce Woods Provincial Park, and the quintessential lake town of Gimli. Gimli, in particular, at just an hour away from Winnipeg, is one of the most popular day trip destinations and its lakeside boardwalk is sure to enchant many a visitor.
  • Picking up a hire car after flying into Winnipeg International Airport? Travelers looking to rent a car after landing in Winnipeg can find the hire car counters on the main level of the airport’s adjacent parkade.
  • Travelers visiting Winnipeg during winter should be extra careful when driving on icy and snowy roads. Canada and Manitoba especially have some serious winter weather and in a flash the roads can be covered with fresh powder. Drivers unused to such conditions are advised to drive extra cautiously and to stick to only the largest and most well-maintained roads.
  • Luckily for drivers, Winnipeg’s rush hour is not even close to being as severe as Toronto’s or Montreal’s. Drivers can usually expect to see the morning rush hour pick up at around 7:30 a.m. and finish up shortly after 9:00 a.m. As for the afternoon peak, it starts at around 3:30 p.m. and slows down at about 5:30 p.m. Some of the main roads to avoid during rush hour include Osborne St. (Route 62) and Pembina Highway (Route 42).

  • On average hiring a car in Winnipeg costs $247 per week ($35 per day).

  • On average a car hire in Winnipeg costs $1,058 per month ($35 per day).

  • Luckily for those who prefer large cars, Winnipeg’s wide streets are well-suited for all sizes of vehicles. Whether you are driving an SUV or a two-door coupe, you should have no problem navigating the streets of Winnipeg. However, drivers should note that in the downtown area streetside parking spaces can be limited in size at certain times.

  • The speed limits in Winnipeg and in Manitoba in general start at 30 km/h (18 mph) in residential areas and school zones, 50 km/h (31 mph) on urban streets, and between 90 and 110 km/h (56 - 68 mph) on expressways and highways.

  • Average petrol prices in Winnipeg are about C$0.90 ($0.68) per liter of gas. For those who prefer to compare petrol prices on a per-gallon basis, that is about C$3.41 ($2.57) per gallon of gas. This is right around the average price seen in Salt Lake City ($2.75) and New York City ($2.60), but is quite cheap compared to Europe, where drivers may see prices as high as $6.68 per gallon of petrol like it is in Frankfurt am Main.

  • Parking garages and streetside parking are your best bets for parking in downtown Winnipeg. There are also a number of underground parking lots, so even if you don’t spy an above-ground one, you may be just around the corner from an underground lot. Metered parking is also common throughout Winnipeg, particularly in the central business district.
