Pros:

It was easy to get in and out of parking and held our luggage nicely

Cons:

I would prefer the guy not try to get us to pay for an upgrade . He kept going on and going on about us needing a bigger car .......of course to pay more for . I ordered what o thought we needed and it was fine . No need to waste our time .

KAYAK

Pros:

It was easy to get the car, the car was perfect, I had a great experience with the overall renting. Easy to get there from the airport, & excellent service at the counter.

Cons:

It was a bit too expensive. I was shocked to learn insurance through Alamo would be $30 / day, when I could have gotten it for $12 / day through Kayak. I realize there are differences, but I don't understand the huge spike in price.

Cons:

The wait time was too long, 1 hour to be exact. There were not enough agents to assist customers who had reservations. And more importantly, there was not an apology or explanation for the reason. People are eager to forgive if given the opportunity but only more upset if not.

The staff gave me excellent service during my time in Calgary. My rental was supposed to be for 5 days, but they advised me I'd be getting a 6th day free as they were closed on the day I was supposed to return the car. They were extremely friendly and informative, and the process was clear and quick. I will definitely be doing business with Hertz again the next time I'm needing a vehicle in Calgary or any other province within Canada!

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.

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.

KAYAK

Cons:

I rented a car through kayak only to be told by the vendor on arrival that they were sold out and the online merchant who sold the deal to me neglected to give them any contact so that they could let me know. This was discovered after my ride left leaving me stranded on an unfamiliar road in an unfamiliar city in the cold at 5 PM when essentially everything was shutting down and derailing my plans completely. It looks like you over sold and now are pawning me off on the third party (carrentals.com) for resolution “in a few days.” The reservation was paid in advance for a rental that KAYAK was claiming to guarantee and failed to deliver. On your own website you write “we work hard as the world’s leading travel search engine to get our users the information they need so they can plan trips the way they want, confidently.” In big bold letters no less! What a crock, this was my first experience booking through you and I’ll be sure to tell everyone I know about my experience with KAYAK. Finally I request again you either secure a car so I may complete my delayed travel or refund what I paid. Thank you.

Cons:

Bait and switch not appreciated. Printed quote we had from Thrifty.com was not honored and went up by $60 at pick up. All manner of fast-talking reasons were cited, all of which had already been accounted for when we got the quote online. Branch or quote software needs examination.

Calgary staff was very helpful.

Cons:

a) I was “upgraded” from a Corolla type size to a Grand Caravan mini van. I had been hoping for a smaller car rather than the larger minivan. b) I was surprised that the dropoff location closed at 5 PM. Although there was a key dropoff box one does not really know if everything is ok

Pros:

Not much at all.

Cons:

We waited in line for 20 minutes only to be told they had no car for us. They walked us down to Hertz where we waited another 30 minutes in line only to be told we had to wait for a car. We waited 45 minutes. We ended up arriving to our destination over an hour late and missing an important dinner. The car itself was fine, but we will never rent from dollar again - when you add in the list time and missed dinner with colleagues, this was a very expensive rental and one we don’t want to repeat. There was no apology and no explanation - they oversold and did nothing.

Mar 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly professional desk staff.

Cons:

The car has a slow leak in the right front tire. I wish I'd paid better attention to ensure the care had cruise control. Leaving the parkade on foot involves a trip through a nasty old stairwell and corridor where I thought I might get stabbed. The frost scraper was badly chipped and mostly useless. If pickup/dropoff was an option, I wasn't made aware of it.

Aug 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The 2016 Surburban LTZ reserved was exactly what we needed to transport 7 with carry-on size luggage on a trip from Calgary to Kelowna. I called in a few months before to ask for either a Surburban or Yukon XL so it was great that Driving Force was able to accommodate my needs. This vehicle had all the added bells and whistles such as, adaptive cruise control, pretty good fuel mileage for it's size, collision sensors, A/C seats (front only), and a pretty bumping sound system. It definitely made it easier for me to feel safe and confident enough to drive the SUV since I normally drive a Mazda 3 so it was a big change for me.

Cons:

Honestly nothing to complain about!

Cons:

If you take the shuttle from the airport there is approximately $50+ extra charges for "airport taxes", making this rental more costly than other car rentals conveniently right at airport. This charge is not included when booking car. Beware.

AVOID this rental car. have all sorts of hidden fees . while booking, it was 'unlimited mileage'. then because i am an Albertan renting in Calgary, it is 200kms per day and have to pay for extra mileage. RIPPED OFF , Used another rental agency last week to go to Victoria BC with real 'unlimited mileage"- well now i know how ROUTES works, i will never ever rent a car there. i actually declined and cancelled the car rental on that day, i went to another agency and get another car for unlimited mileage almost the same price. AVOID this agency !

I had to wait a bit to get my car when I arrived in Vancouver but when I did it was a brand new Jeep which was a free upgrade from what I reserved. I had no problems on the drive from Vancouver to Calgary (and all the sightseeing trips in between). When I dropped off the car the staff even gave us a ride to the hotel, saving us cab or Uber fare. Thanks!!

It's honestly hard for me to think of something I liked. The lady who picked us up from the airport was nice. Overall it was horrible.

Cons:

It says they are at the airport, but they are actually 20 minutes from the airport, after you have to wait 20-30 minutes for them to pick you up.

The vehicle didn't have bluetooth. The windshield had cracks in it and continued to crack as small chunks of snow hit the windshield (it was a Jeep). When I booked the rental, I received a detailed invoice stating I would be charged $137 CAD but when I went to pick up the car, I was charged $178 CAD. When I brought it up, I was told I had to call in to the website which was closed. It was upsetting ever since we picked up the car. I would not recommend Economy Rent a Car to anyone. I would gladly pay more to have a better experience at just about any other rental agency.

Nov 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The price is very good, and the staff was friendly. They even called the night before to see what time I landed and asked for my flight info going over what their pickup process was going to be.

Cons:

This company takes a while to pick you up and get you to their offsite location (20-30 min) which is a small room inside a hotel. The car didn’t have enough windshield washing fluid which could have made the trip up the mountains very dangerous if I didn’t catch it while I was still near civilization. They were very picky while checking the condition of the car with me. Had me use my phone flashlight as it was dark out so they could write down ever scratch and chip on the body (and there ended up being a considerable amount) which makes me glad that I took the insurance (who knows if they missed a tiny scratch?) The vehicle was past due on an oil change for over 2,000 km at the time of pick up. My reservation was for a Toyota rav 4 or similar ( I love Toyota’s) and their only options were a dodge pickup truck, or 3 types of kia’s.

Car rental insurance in Calgary

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Calgary car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Calgary.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Calgary car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Calgary

  • Calgary is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Situated at the junction of the Bow and Elbow Rivers and with the Canadian Rockies on your doorstep, exploring the surroundings of Calgary is a dream with a hire car. The world famous Banff National Park is only a little over an hour’s drive west and will leave you awestruck with the picturesque turquoise glacial lakes, untouched wilderness, and natural hot springs.
