Worst costumer serviceCons:I tried to contact this company a week before my rental to figure out some of the details (where they were located, how to get there, etc.?). I sent them an email on a Wednesday. On Monday I still hadn't heard anything so I called their 1-800 number. I was told on the phone that they couldn't help me because I had already put in an email request. First of all, it should not take 5 days to respond to an email. Secondly, if it does take 5 days to respond to an email when someone calls you should have the ability to help! I promptly cancelled my reservation. Three days later I finally received an email back.Reviewed Oct 21 2017

Poor customer service and hidden feesCons:The customer service was sub-par and downright rude on both drop-off and pick-up. Very limited cars left when picking up so was given a much larger vehicle (rather than the economy size I had reserved) which ended up costing me more in gas. When I reserved the car, my reservation said I had unlimited mileage; however, there was a 200km per day limit, after which, I would be charged. There was also a $1000 deposit which was not disclosed at the time of reservation. Finally, the gas tank was only 3/4 full when I received the car, which made it very difficult to gauge how much gas I needed to fill when returning. I would not return to Routes, nor would I recommend to anyone within or travelling to Ottawa.Reviewed Jul 26 2017

Pros:I scheduled my pick up at 8:00 since I was on a tight scheduled. John was helpful showed me the vehicle and did the walk-around with me. They also dropped me off at work which was fantastic.Cons:First off the $1500 hold is a bit excessive. The other thing is the scam with the unlimited mileage, don't advertise unlimited mileage if that is not the case knowing very well that once we have made the arrangements, the customer is at your mercy.Reviewed Apr 24 2021

Pros:The orginal price was 209$ and they end up charging 349$. Also, on the site, it's state 500$ deposit, and once on site, they want 1500$ deposit.Cons:Price is a scam. Make sure of what the customer will pay. Really a scam !Reviewed Apr 30 2021

Excellent Service and ValuePros:I was very impressed with the service, friendliness and professionalism of the business. It was fast, simple and easy. I wad picked up at the airport and brought to my car. It was an upgrade, beautiful Nissan Pathfinder with all the bells and whistles. I had to drop the car off quickly and it took them 1 minute to process my paperwork and then I had a private ride to the airport right to my gate. The whole experience was five star. Thank you Routes!Cons:There is nothing negative to say. It was honestly amazing!Reviewed Dec 3 2017

Pros:No hassle getting the rental, and not that far from the airport. Overall a good rental experience. I would rent again from this company. I was surprised that the gas tank was not full, only5/8 of a tank but I did not have to bring it back full. Only with the same amount of gas that they had in itReviewed Nov 1 2017

Cons:They advertised Unlimited Mileage but only had 300 kms per day. I had to argue to get more kms included which was ridiculous. Pickup was slow and drop-off as well they took their sweet time, so it was a slow process both times.Reviewed Jun 25 2018

I never rent a car from them againPros:NothingCons:They advertised "unlimited" mileage, which was not true. They didn't save a car that I have reserved. They told me that I cannot switch the name of renter to charge additional driver. They increased the amount of additional charge of a driver per day without approval. They offered me a car with full of scratches and missed two spots of damages if I didn't point out. I never rent a car from them againReviewed Apr 24 2018

poor communication and servicePros:nothingCons:The order confirmation said the location would be open until 11:30pm. They weren't and instead closed at 10pm. I was left stranded at the airport without a car. I had to take a taxi to my hotel. The next morning, I had to demand they pick me up and bring me to the location (which they did, but on their schedule, not mine.) Once I finally got to the rental counter, although I was able to PAY the FINAL bill with a debit card, I could not rent (credit card hold) with a debit card. They wanted a $500 (!) hold in order to rent a $90 car rental. I couldn't use my debit cards, so I asked to split the $500 across 2 credit cards. They couldn't do that either (not sure if it was incompetence or policy). I left without renting a car, angry, frustrated and going to their competitor.)Reviewed Dec 8 2017

The company staff was excellentPros:Pickup and dropoff was easy and smooth. The shuttle from the airport was excellent and staff was very friendly and helpful.the vehicle was next to new and very clean.Cons:I reserved a compact but none were available so I was given a jeep wrangler. The vehicle itself was next to new and very clean but was uncomfortable and was a beast on gas. I spent almost as much on gas for the 3 days I had it as I did for the rental. Would like if they had more compact cars availableReviewed Apr 17 2018
