2.4 Mediocre28 Aug 2020
Cons: Car was not clean. This is a big concern especially during this pandemic. Also I had to wait a long time to pick up the vehicle. I should have just rented from the airport. The South Calgary trail location in Edmonton is not a good location to rent

4.0 Okay4 Nov 2020
Pros: Opening hour, easy to get and drop from airport.Cons: The winter tires didn't included by default in the rent! In Canada during the winter, it's impossible. I needed to add 20$/day extra cost. So I double the amount of my rent. The car was no smoking car. But I never drive a car with an heavy smoke smelt inside like this! The next time I come back to change the car before left the parking! So keep no smoke in no smoking cars!
10.0 Excellent23 Sep 2020
Pros: No surprise fees, the car was nearby, and it worked great.Cons: Sometimes I wish car rental companies had small photos of all the cars in their fleet so that I wouldn't have to start googling what a certain model looked like to remind myself if given the option between different vehicles.
10.0 Excellent30 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was excellent and because there were no ford150s available we were upgraded -for free- to a Ram hemi. Fabulous! We were extremely happy with our Hertz experience.Cons: Not a thing.
6.0 Good28 Mar 2020
Cons: Five phone calls to alter drop off location, no concrete answer about what change fee would be, no estimate or quote given when I told when I would drop car off.
10.0 Excellent3 Feb 2020
Cons: My rental experience in this location is excellent because i was given an upgrade vehicle without a single cost. Intact I already booked my next car for 1 month.
9.2 Excellent15 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I was impressed with their “getting it done attitude”.
10.0 Excellent2 Sep 2019
Pros: Free upgrade was nice. The staff was very friendly.Cons: The extra insurance at $50.00 per day seemed a little steep.
7.2 Good2 Sep 2019
Pros: The staff was helpful and conveniently located at the airport location.Cons: The agent wanted to up sell to a larger model as they wanted the smaller SUVs for other customers. I was OK with that if it was a free upgrade, but they wanted to charge me for it.
4.8 Okay19 Aug 2019
Pros: Awfull service. I booked my car for pick up at 1 am, my plane landed at 1 15 and I was at the desk at 1 25 to find it closed. I walked around the parking lot and called the 1800 number to find out the close the desk at 1 am, and they blamed me for not putting my flight information on my reservation.Cons: Dont book with hertz Edmonton if you are going to arrive after middnight, or you migh find yourself sleeping at the airport waiting for them to open at 6 am and even then they wont even say "Sorry" all I got was you were here after 1am.... I am sure I would never use them again. Companies got to big
9.6 Excellent17 Jun 2019
Pros: Friendly serviceCons: Car head rests were too far forward.

Cons: Drop off was awful! No signs where to take car. Finally found a tiny sign to drive to the 7th fl of garage. No attendant around. Spent 20 minutes walking around offices to find someone.
9.6 Excellent19 Feb 2019
Pros: Both pick-up nad drop-off of the car were fast, and staff were all friendly.Cons: I was surprised that my rental car did not have a block heater, given how cold temperatures can get in winter in Edmonton.

8.4 Excellent21 Jul 2018
Avis drop off Banff downtown is a nightmare for stressPros: Nice vehicle. TeasonableCons: Downtown drop off location was impossible due to lack of deatails, signage, traffic no where to stop. Deatailed directions for complicated drop off downtown should be provided. Alternative location should be provided with directions
10.0 Excellent5 Jun 2018
Pros: The attendant at the drop off location was helpful and attentive to my concern and fixed the problem.Cons: AVIS was charging me for a late fee, when I had paid for 2days (2*24hr periods)
2.0 Mediocre16 Dec 2017
Avis wouldn't honor the confirmed rental rateCons: Booked a Tahoe online and when we went to pick up the car and was signing all the documents, noticed the price was more than 4 times the price. I showed them my confirmation but the time my just told me there must have been an issue with the booking site. There was no mention of this before I was about to sign and they would not honor the confirmed price I had so I left and went to Alamo who gave me a great deal. Thank you Alamo. Last time booking Avis

4.8 Okay2 Aug 2017
Pros: Car was really quite fuel efficiencentCons: The fuel tank wasn't quite full and the inside of the tank was disgusting, had an awful smell , I had to armour all everything before I could drive the vehicle
10.0 Excellent16 Jun 2017
A lovely tripPros: Scheduled my pickup from the airport for 11, but they did not have a car ready ( I was 10 minutes early as my flight was ahead of schedule) I was upgraded to a B class car and loved it! May have changed my mind on wanting to purchase a jeep because I loved the Chevy Malibu so much. My first time renting a car, and was very pleased.Cons: I wasn't offered any kind of km deal, which is fine, but it would have been nice if there was a package since it is roughly 400 kms from Edmonton to Jasper

4.4 Okay22 Aug 2020
Pros: The car smelt freshCons: I could have gotten what I wanted and the time I wanted it. Your employees could use better interpersonal skills. Customers relations. Took me almost a week to get a car . I was not impressed I called and never once got a call back from any rep that I talked to
5.6 Okay18 Aug 2020
Pros: The staff was not friendly I was charged 30 dollars more during pic up . Also the car was parked in the basement parking lot I couldn't see every thing clear because it was dark after I drive out the car from the parking I call them to mention about there was detective at the edge of driver side door and I was told they check it with flash light i was on the phone 2 twice instead of hedding iff to my destination finally they told me to take a pic .Cons: Customer service suppose to be more professional and help full instead of giving out the kie and expect you to check for any scratched wille the car was parked in the basement parked.
2.0 Mediocre5 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was far from helpful. Seemed very miserable. I ended up cancelling my reservationCons: Let people know online when making a reservation. That you need a MasterCard. And that you don’t accept visa. Kind of shitty. Making a reservation online put all my info in. All my card info. Just to show up. And not even be able to get it cause they can’t swipe my Visa card. What a joke

3.2 Mediocre10 Dec 2018
Pros: The truck was clean.Cons: 1) We reserved a car and when we showed up they only had two pickup trucks to choose from. 2) The had the vehicle in 4-wheel drive mode, instead of 2-wheel so we drove three hours in that mode. Would assume that we got worse gas mileage. 3) Overall gas usage, and cost, was higher just by using a big truck instead of the car that we reserved. 4) Big truck made is almost impossible to find a parking spot when driving in downtown Calgary. Truck was almost too high for the parking garage for the hotel that we stayed in. 5) Finally we were charged the rate for a truck as opposed to the rate for the car that we reserved. A

My wife and little kid were extremely sad and disappointed. Terrible experience

Top tips for hiring a car in Edmonton

  • While the capital of Canada's Alberta region may offer good transportation services in the city, renting a car is a great option for travelers looking to embark on some outdoor adventures outside the city. Driving is the best way to get to must-see destinations that are fairly close to the city such as the Elk Island National Park, which is only a 35-minute drive from Edmonton and is the perfect place to hike, canoe, or even camp. Head to the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve, which is located just 40 minutes east of Edmonton, for an incredible stargazing experience and a good chance to spot the northern lights.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Edmonton International Airport (YEG), including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz. The car hire counters are located near the baggage claim area on Level P1 (Ground Level) of the Parkade. Some car hire companies may require that you contact them a few days in advance, so make sure you chose one that accommodates your needs.
  • Edmonton has a few interior highways and even a ring road, but you don't necessarily have to take the main roads (such as Whitemud, Yellowhead, or Anthony Henday) as they end up being the busiest. Look out for cyclists during the months when the weather is good. The weather can be quite harsh in the winter, so reduce your speed and keep a safe distance between your car and the other vehicles since roads can get slippery.
  • Although traffic in Edmonton is fairly manageable when compared to other Canadian cities, rush hour can still add an extra 30 minutes to an hour to your travel time. Take this into consideration when driving into or out of the city's downtown core, and avoid morning rush hour (between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.) as well as afternoon rush hour (between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.). The Anthony Henday freeway is one of the busiest roads in Edmonton during rush hour, as well as the Whitemud freeway, which is usually busy with traffic heading from south to north and vice-versa.
