Pros:Ana Maria was a great person to deal with. Customer service was par excellence. She was quick to point out the facts and help us out with the rental. Mike was courteous too. I was amazed at their customer service. Prompt and proactive.Cons:The vehicle had some side pockets on the door that were not cleaned and there were food crumbs near the gear-shifter from previous rental. We had to wipe it clean with a wet towel and a disinfectant especially in this pandemic environment.Reviewed Oct 1 2020

Misleading salesperson and quotePros:Quick drop off.Cons:Our rental quote didn't include any of the airport fees, which add up quickly. The front desk lady that we had did not explain things like the gas option well and was actually misleading by saying there weren't any gas stations around the airport so we should take this option for our Calgary to Canmore trip. She said the gas was charged at 92c/litre but didn't mention that we pay for a full fill regardless of what we use. In the end, our quote of $110 turned into $220 which I just would've liked to know upfront.Reviewed Dec 29 2018

Pros:Friendly staff. This is the third time I've rented from this location and there's always a bit of a wait.Cons:The after hours drop off worked well but they tell customers "you are responsible for the vehicle until the keys are picked up in the morning". So it feels risky to do it but we had to due to our timelines.Reviewed Aug 7 2020

DisappointedPros:Almost nothing. I mean the car was clean. But it was a rough drive. especially just being upset at what I needed up paying I'm just thoroughly unimpressed overall.Cons:The woman I picked up the car from was super rude. And offered no help when it came to the pricing indescrepancies. I was quoted $169 for 1 week. And walked out paying upwards of $380. That's A HUGE price difference 'insurance' or not. It should be included in your quotes when making a reservation instead of tricking people and making them think it will be a good deal. I was outraged. And when I called in to speak with someone they kept rerouting me to the location it was picked up at and speaking with the same rude woman I picked the car up from, who would after 10 minutes, barely let me talk to the manager who was also a rude. Terrible experience. No help offered or reasoning, nothing to resolve the issue. Or even an apology. Which goes a long way.Reviewed May 17 2017

Terrible ExeriencePros:NothingCons:I made the appointment to pick up the car at 10am and called the morning of our pickup to make sure it was ok for my husband to pick it up since the reservation was under my name. When I made that change they went ahead and changed my reservation to 11am without asking me so when he arrived at 10 they said they couldn't release the car until 11 so he waited. At 11 they told him they didn't have the car there and would have to bring it in from another location so he waited another 30 minutes. Finally at 11:45 we got our car, it wasn't what we reserved but at that point we were grateful to have any car so we took it. Then at drop off we couldn't find a gas station ANYWHERE near the airport (we looked for one within a 15 minute drive) so we had to drop it off with half a tank or risk missing our flight. We werecharged $120 to fill the tank and the guy even said "yeah there's no gas stations around here but there's nothing we can do about that". There is though, it's giving us a heads up on that when we picked it up. All around it was a terrible experience.Reviewed Oct 24 2017

Cons:The reception desk people at the Calgary airport were not very customer service minded. No smiles, no nice greeting, substandard customer service. I was told I had to wait half hour for my car despite the fact my reservation was confirmed weeks ahead of my arrival date. Car was not properly cleaned.Reviewed Jul 21 2019
