The car performed great. The car needed to be serviced, since it had several messages about routine maintenance that kept appearing every time the car was started.

Great experience- very easy and smooth process to pickup and return car.
10.0 ExcellentNov 3 2021
Booked online outside of airport terminal and walked in and picked up car. Whole process start to finish took about 15 minutes. Filled up at service station by airport and dropped car off and left keys in the lock box which took about 1 minute of my valuable time. Seamless process.

Car features were nice!I don't rent often. The car had iPlay and a touchscreen built in which made it very easy to navigate and make phone calls with my iphone. Car happened to be brand new with 10km.

6.0 GoodMay 17 2022
Prices are getting outrageous. 2 years ago rented through budget, rented a luxury jaguar f pace with unlimited kms for under 500. Now it was premier vehicle, 1600 kms for over 700 for same amount of time. I also had no options this time to chose between different vehicles, 2 years ago I had options. Very limited and getting over priced for the value like everything else in the world. Getting too expensive to travel.

1.9 HorribleAug 30 2021
Having a car available would have helped and not having to go to Hertz and pay 3x as much since the car I reserved through Kayak with Budget wasn't there - this despite phoning ahead.
10.0 ExcellentOct 2 2019
The staff was very friendly, especially having to pick up the car at midnight. I was happy to find the staff readily available.I wish I had been aware of the check in process to return the car, not that it was a problem at all, but just so that I could have been prepared to simply drop the car off without having to go to the desk.

I have no suggestions for improvement. The staff were efficient and very helpful.
7.9 GoodSep 16 2021
The only thing I did not like was that i was charged an additional $7.00 for an air conditioning fee. This should be included with the base price.Air conditioning comes with the vehicle when the car is manufactured. I then asked for a car without air conditioning; they do not have any such car. Money grab big time (ridiculous). DJ.
10.0 ExcellentAug 28 2021
My rental was upgraded as cars were a bit late being turned in. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I had to wait a bit for the vehicle but it worked out ok.
10.0 ExcellentJul 27 2021
Liked: A new car ! This does not happen every day, but I was pleased to find a brand new (71km on the odo) 2021 Toyota Corolla. The vehicle exceeded my expectations for comfort and convenience. Not so much: the policy of requiring extra $ for 2nd driver who is on the same insurance policy.
8.0 ExcellentMar 24 2020
YesThe advertised price was $32 per day - no mention of insurance. When I collected the car I paid over $80. Insurance alone was $42. These hidden charges are bad. $80 per day for a car is excessive.
9.6 ExcellentSep 18 2018
The car I paid for (full size) was not available in Halifax, NS Canada. They gave me a mini-van which worked fine. Lots of additional fees.
10.0 ExcellentJul 7 2018
Easy to drive, comfortable. Some blind spots but what car doesn’t have those?! Getting car was a cinch and same with return.Can’t think of anything.
10.0 ExcellentJun 25 2018
Great rideMy rental was a nice upgrade to an XTS, quick turn around at the counter once talking to counter staff.A little backed up, busy weekend but seemed a little distracted by challenging rentals and as a result waited for 20 minutes before getting my rental picked up.

Easy rentalWe picked up the car at the Halifax airport and two days later dropped it off at our hotel. It worked seamlessly and we were very pleased.Everything was good

I liked the fact that the Hyundai was an SUV and had good visibility and road clearance.There were some controls on the SUV that weren't intuitive and took some time to understand
4.0 OkayFeb 20 2018
It was advertised for $105 and I eneded up paying $358 with taxes and insurance.
7.6 GoodSep 12 2016
Unfortunately the car was extremely hard on fuel despite asking for an economy. I drove only 60 km on the highway with no traffic and it cost over $20 to refuel. The car did not run well, you could feel it shifting every gear like there was something wrong with it and it was an automatic. Other than that, it was okay. Their staff are very friendly.
8.0 ExcellentSep 12 2016
Friendly service with nice new carThe car was as advertised and the staff at Halifax Airport were friendly and helpfulI got hit with a $20 Premium outlet charge that wasn't stated when I booked with Kayak

UpgradeWe had a reservation for a compact car, and were offered an upgrade to a larger car at no charge. Had a Hyundai Sonata, very nice car with good fuel economy.We arrived at Halifax airport late (9:30 PM), and called the number. No answer. Waited about 10 minutes, called again, go someone to pick us up. Staff should have headsets to be able to answer phone wherever they are, to avoid panic attacks by customers.
7.6 GoodJun 15 2017
Good car rental in Canada but beware of excess insuranceCar was good fitted with satnav fitted and we received an upgradeRental company would not accept vehicle excess insurance which had been purchased, so we had to take full insurance with the rental company which was more expensive and then claim a refund on the external policy

There was an extremely long line of customers waiting to get their cars with only 2 employees working, one of whom was being monitored which slowed her down immensely. The process was made longer due to the questionable requirement of the agent to try to upgrade you to a more expensive car and then to buy extra car insurance. Maybe if you cannot staff adequately you could forgo the extra sales efforts? Or maybe the lady standing there watching could fire up a terminal and get some travelers on their way?
8.0 ExcellentMar 22 2022
Very accommodating, had no issue at all except at check in, the clerk wanted me to sign the inspection slip of the car without actually going out to inspect the car before leaving.. maybe he was new and that’s ok bc I just advised that we should go look before signing anything..

Yes the staff was helpful and polite. Most notably the return was exceptionally quick and easy.More counter help. The customer in front of me asked EVERY question imaginable and some that were unimaginable and then of course the attendant was trying to up sell. Sorry but the last thing you want to do after a long day of traveling is to wait in line unnecessarily. Once they got done our transaction went smoothly and we were on our way.

Staff at Halifax were excellent.The two telephone reps ( from Timbuck2) did not do anything they were asked to do even though they acknowledged they did. Vehicle was smaller than advertised even though the disclaimer may have shown that. Our vehicle was not similar to a Chev Tahoe by any standard.

There was an extra $138 charged to my Visa. The experience of brining the car back was quite lovely, the clerk was very friendly and nice but she did not say a word about any extra expenses being put on my bill, she simply handed me a triple folded receipt and said have a great holiday season. The next day when I pulled the receipt out of my purse I saw the total charged to my account. Needless to say, I will NOT be using them again.
