Canceled within 24h but only received part of the payment back. When you reach out to them, they charge you extra to speak to an adviser. Would not use them again.

Vehicle was clean, tank was full. Not the size of vehicle ordered…received something much larger…a gas guzzler. There were still the size of vehicle i ordered sitting in the rental lot.

Charged $50 for cancelling within 48 hours and did not inform of this policy in advance. I searched for a policy before cancelling and could not find anything. They then refused to refund after complaining.

The Pacifica suited our needs. I appreciated the inspection photos sent to me pre-trip. The cost was a bit high. Friendly service at the counter.

Although it was the cheapest price - the service was very poor. When I rented - I was just pointed in the general direction of the parking lot and told what slot it was in! Really? It is a big lot & it was raining and I have never been to Kelowna before! I realize staff is in short supply but I actually worked for Hertz many many years ago and know how it is supposed to work! Please improve your service!!

Easy renting it @ the airport, friendly staffThe walk to & from the terminal. Also no one to show me different features such as turning off & on wipers, how to work the sun roof, didn't know there was a lever in the car to release the fuel door. Twice the vehicle I wanted wasn't there.

Great overall experienceQuick service - nice, clean and good car.Considering i was driving in the Kootrnays i really wish i had snow tires on! Some very dangerous driving and the tires were all seasons - not ideal for high mountain driving.
6.8 GoodNov 20 2017
Check the tires carefullyNice vehicle, leather, heated seats and steering wheel and automatic start and lightsThe tires were awful. I was to go over mountain passes and insisted on winter tires. With only a couple of cars left they did give me their AWD and they said the tires were rated as mud/snow they were bald. Scary on the passes!!!

10.0 ExcellentMay 24 2017
New car...that was hybrid when idling. Nice size, comfortable seats, and very professional people helping out at start, finish, and when we had the problem with the balancing of the wheels. Thank you!The only problem we had was related to the balancing of the wheels. I think that when the winter tires were exchanged for the summer ones, the balancing should have been done a bit more carefully. We lost part of a day while we waited for the wheels to be balanced when it became a problem one week in to the trip. Maybe something to do with lugs too?? Oh...and the fob didn't work when we were going on to the ferry! Fortunately, it started to work again! A bit stressful!

The logistics of the pick up turned out to be perfect, but we’re not well explained in the reservation materials, so I had to do a little detective work. Also the local brand name of Aligo should have been included in the reservation, as the Ace name isn’t well known in Kelowna.

Pickup was a breeze. Signage was difficult to follow when returning but we got it figured out eventually. Car had a terrible shake at Hwy speed. Hope they get it fixed. We notified them when we noticed and they felt it may be snow in the wheels. It was 10 deg C.

The older gentlemen that work the shuttles were very kind and friendly. That is where the positive experience ends.Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.
