10.0 ExcellentJul 7 2021
Pros: nice and personable staff. understanding and quickCons: really nothing, maybe the price but even that wasn't bad
7.6 GoodOct 6 2020
Cons: There were scratches on the car that weren't reported.
10.0 ExcellentDec 25 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, excellent location, nice comfortable vehicle.Cons: A little difficult to return the vehicle due to one way roads not easily maneuverable but on the 2nd go-around we figured out how to get into the lot and through the road construction. Nice staff, but they really scrutinize the vehicle so take pictures before you drive off the lot.
7.6 GoodJul 29 2019
Pros: The drop off was convenient.Cons: We went to National twice after driving a distance to get there and were not able to add a second driver either time. Misinformation, computer system down, nobody there. Very frustrating,.
3.6 MediocreJul 23 2019
Cons: Damage check when returning felt like a criminal investigation. It ended up fine, but seemed like they were really trying to find insignificant damage to hold you accountable for. They also shadily dodged questions about the gas fill up requirements.
2.0 MediocreJul 2 2019
Pros: The whole experience was awful, I will never use national car rentals again.Cons: The customer service and management
8.4 ExcellentJun 5 2019
Pros: Car was clean.Cons: This office has a weird after hours dropoff policy: you are "responsible for the car" even when you drop the keys off in their lock box. In short: you're responsible for any damage even after you "return" the car until they have someone process your return.
10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2019
Pros: The flexibility of 'drop-off locations' is what I appreciate. Other companies charge an additional amount if the car is dropped off at a location that is different from the locations where the car was picked up. National does not and there are several lots in the Greater Victoria area to use.Cons: The $300 deposit required when the car is picked up was a surprise. It is meant to cover outstanding claims (like parking or speeding tickets) and is becoming the standard for all rental companies, but it was still an unexpected surprise and should have been stated up front when the car was booked.
9.6 ExcellentJun 4 2019
Pros: No wait to pickup or drop off. No pressure to buy add-ons like "prepay fuel" or extra insurancesCons: Parking lot is really tiny (a bit annoying to inspect the car because of how close it ends up being parked next to other cars) but not really an issue.
2.0 MediocreJun 1 2019
Pros: N/ACons: Having previously worked for their parent company, I've seen some poor looking offices, but this took the cake. It was a tiny, rundown, modular structure that was a wreck inside. When we finally found someone they wouldn't even try our cards because they don't take US credit/debit.

10.0 ExcellentJul 1 2021
Pros: pick up and drop off were quick and easy and there's a gas station a block away for the last minute fill up upon returnCons: Can't think of anything that would have made it better. smooth and seamless
10.0 ExcellentNov 8 2020
Pros: It was all a positive experience.Cons: There is nothing that I could identify as needing improvement.
10.0 ExcellentApr 21 2019
Pros: Staff was helpful and pleasantCons: Every thing went well
10.0 ExcellentMar 29 2019
Pros: Great staff. Awesome SUV.
7.6 GoodMar 13 2019
Pros: everything on time and as expected however... the new electronic "agreement" seems pretty sketchy, no hard copy for the customer... could easily be changed on their side cant fit all the negatives into the better part, oopsCons: first off, the guy who i picked up the car from straight up lied to me saying gas from them would be 2.15/liter if i dropped it off empty, saying its below market price, great deal, no extra fees... wow sounds very nice... i looked closer at the electronic agreement, nope, almost 3.00/liter....
9.6 ExcellentFeb 27 2019
Pros: Staff were efficient and friendly. The rental pick up and drop off was quick and easy. Great value for the money.Cons: Only issue was the exterior of rental vehicle was not clean when picked up.
8.4 ExcellentFeb 20 2019
Pros: nice car, friendly staffCons: had to wait 1.5 hours (past closing time...) for a car, because other renter was 3.5 hours late returning the vehicle. Seemed like a lack of communication, but not sure if one person was just blaming other for the situation... I was offered a small discount for the trouble.
7.2 GoodOct 8 2018
Very dirty carPros: Service was good, man behind the counter was ver friendly.Cons: The car was not clean inside or out. The windows inside the car were discussing - not sure they had ever been cleaned. We cleaned them ourselves so we could see to drive.
10.0 ExcellentSep 18 2018
Friendly, helpful, great dealPros: It was a bargain find but no stinting on service. The staff were friendly and helpful, the vehicle clean and well kept.
9.2 ExcellentAug 6 2018
Perfect service!Pros: Because of an early check in for the ferry they brought us up to the harbour as a service. Perfect!

8.8 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: The car was very clean. The price was great (likely because of COVID)
6.4 GoodSep 2 2019
Cons: The pick up was unorganized and took a bit for anyone to acknowledged me. They seemed to be understaffed and not aware of what was going on. The office was extremely hot and was not well kept.
9.2 ExcellentJul 22 2019
Cons: They told us we would have a Kia online and ended up with a very small car that was hard to get our luggage in. Any other car was going to be exceptionally more expensive so we didn’t really have a choice.
9.6 ExcellentJul 17 2019
Cons: hard pressure on insurance but everything else was wonderful
5.2 OkayMay 6 2019
Pros: Pick up staff told me they did not have a full sized car and tried to push me into paying 80 dollars more for a car I did not want or need. Was that a pushy individual or is it a management policy. I think it was the agent
8.4 ExcellentOct 20 2018
Pros: Friendly staff. Price was good.Cons: Seats were a little soiled.
2.0 MediocreSep 10 2018
Cons: I cancelled my reservation. Unlimited mileage from the Victoria Budget office does include travel outside the province of B.C. There is a surcharge per kilometre for the entire rental if you travel outside of B.C. This should be noted on your site when selecting this Budget location. I became aware of this during a research on a travel web site. This was confirmed with a call to the car rental office. Unlimited should mean unlimited.
10.0 ExcellentJun 4 2018
Pros: Comfortably , compact and great on gas.
9.6 ExcellentMay 28 2018
Solid rental at a great pricePros: My wife and I were able to rent a car at the last minute, on a holiday weekend, but at a very good price. Car was clean and comfortable.Cons: Couldn't find an owner's manual to understand a few of the car's quirks, but eventually figured them out.
7.6 GoodJan 17 2018
Pros: The xar worked well.Cons: The vehicles tires were very dangerous in snow and I had difficulty driving vibg around in the snow.

10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2019
Cons: Nothing- everything was seamless
10.0 ExcellentAug 12 2019
Pros: Super friendly. Easy to get to car. Easy drop off.
7.2 GoodJul 31 2019
Pros: Pick up was complicated and took a long time. There was a new employee checking me out, but she didn't seem to have very friendly support from the rest of her team. I felt bad for her. Also, there was an attempted charge for a driver's licence check which shocked me. I think this is ABSOLUTELYCons: (cont from first question) RIDICULOUS. I cannot believe Hertz charges for checking the driver's licence. I will not be renting from Hertz again because of this.
10.0 ExcellentJun 18 2019
Pros: Everything's was very fast and easy and the car was great. We noticed during the pre-trip inspection that one tire had a nail in it, as is common around here with all the construction, so they gave me a new car, no issues at all with only a slight delay to change the paperwork. It was great.Cons: Not much. I was really happy with it all.
9.2 ExcellentJun 16 2019
Pros: We like the pick up at 1 location and drop off at another location with no extra fee. The rental car was clean and affordable.
10.0 ExcellentMay 23 2019
Pros: Really appreciated the pick up and drop off from/to the harbor. Gary was very friendly and helpful in pointing out how to navigate the city and where all the good spots are.
2.0 MediocreMay 7 2019
Cons: I was given the option through Kayak to book this car for a time that the rental place literally WAS NOT OPEN. When I went to pick up the car the place was closed so I had to call Hertz customer service, demand a refund (which will take up to two weeks to be refunded to my card) and go to Enterprise
10.0 ExcellentApr 16 2019
Pros: Staff was extremely friendly and made for a pleasant and personal experience of renting a car. The car was clean and exactly what I was looking for the day. Quick pick up and speedy drop-off, I even made my bus in time.Cons: Nothing, it was the best experience I have had renting a car in my short list of car rental experiences.

Pros: Front desk guy was professional, friendly and thorough.Cons: Those underground drop-off locations are always a little dicey.
8.8 ExcellentJul 30 2019
Pros: Staff was good, location was good, parking for my vehicle was available and reasonably priced. The vehicle was in perfect condition and the late drop provision was very easy.Cons: I reserved a minivan very specifically, because I needed that size of vehicle. When I picked it up though, they did not have any minivans at all. They said my options were either a Suburban or a Ford Flex. I reserved a van because I needed a van. It didn’t really work that well, but we made do.

2.0 MediocreMay 3 2017
I didn't end up picking up the car because the Avis office closed at 6Cons: the office was closed at 6:00pm and I was supposed to pickup at 5:00pm but arrived late. There was no closing time info on the booking information. I ended up having to cancel and get a ride from someone to the event.
3.6 MediocreApr 28 2017
I will never use it againPros: NothingCons: Rental fee ended up being 4 or 5 times expected payment on Kayak. Never use it again and never recommend this place for anyone.
