Cons: "They do not apply Enterprise procedures in offering Customers the free Pickup and Dropoff service for their clients. I find that this Enterprise has a very condescending way in talking to its customers. When asked why the website and answering service offers pickup and/or delivery to customers they blamed it on being short staffed and this service is for only customers that reserve cars for many days. I was asked if I could take public transportation. The employees starting with the manager is very condescending."

Pros: The 500 Oxford Street West are my boys, they always help and are great people to deal with. The car was good on gas mileage, really good.Cons: Instead of base model cars they could have higher quality packages for the cars. The prices could be lower, you know (Daily Rates) The cleanliness of the cars could better, one thing they almost always miss is thevfront windshield of the car, and that's usually on the inside. (Sorry boys)

Nice carPros: I loved the car. It was very clean and sleek. And my license had 007 in it so I was a Bond girl for a week! They were ever so polite and gave me a ride to the train station. This was a lifesaver as my luggage was very heavy.Cons: There was no record on their computer of my reservation. Just lucky I had it on my phone. Car was not full of gas when I got it and they could not adjust the cost to give me a rebate because I had done it online and their computer wouldn’t let them. They did suggest I return it only three quarters full but that is difficult to do. I was certainly less than impressed with the computer program they are using.

Cons: Prices found online are subtotalled. My booking had shown that I would owe about $130 at pick up. But was not told about the additional taxes and coverage per day. This had made it go up to nearly $300 dollars for 4 days. I’m upset that I was told a different price than found online.
Pros: The Customer Service at the pick up and drop off were really friendly, helpful and on the ball. The price was as expected from my booking, and I was happy with $20/day for the car.Cons: The pick up location was changed via email less than 1 day from the pick up time (car was booked 5 days in advance). Every time I spoke with an Avis CSR on the phone, I was given different information as to why that is. The website is inconsistent with information about that as well, as I can still book at the 'closed' location. Very frustrating to be given different bits of information over and over again. It started with me calling in to confirm my reservation and costs (1 day after booking) and everything, including the pick up location, was confirmed. To the follow up calls about the change in location and the change in drop off location without notice. Definitely frustrating and still trying to work this out.
Pros: Izzy was a very helpful counter person at Budget.
9.6 Excellent19 May 2017
Pros: Easy to find the drop off location.Cons: There was nobody there when we dropped off, so we actually had an individual from another rental agency help answer some questions and show us where to drop the key off.
Pros: Both was closed as airport was close due to pandemic. Website should update timings due to lockdown
7.2 Good13 Jun 2019
Pros: The drop off was a little weird. The guy wasn’t in his booth and was walking out the door and asked for my keys. I was super confused as he didn’t have an ID card etc. It took me a few minutes to realize he had a Hertz shirt on. I didn’t like the drop off.Cons: Car could have been cleaner and the drop off better, but other than that, it was fine.
London, Ontario welcomes travelers with many interesting attractions and sights, including Storybook Gardens, various museums, and golfing clubs. Whether you’ve come to enjoy a golfing vacation or spend quality time with your family, the easiest way to maneuver through the city is on your four wheels. Rent a car for your time in London to do everything whenever you want to and create your own travel itinerary.
London International Airport is just over 7 miles from the heart of London, so consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to be in the city in less than a quarter of an hour via Oxford Street E or Trafalgar Square, depending on your next destination. Upon landing at the airport, head to the hire car desks and choose a car from multi-national companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz.
To enjoy a pleasant and smooth driving experience in London, adopt a defensive driving style, as some local drivers have the reputation of regarding street regulations rather as suggestions. Changing lanes without indicating beforehand or running a yellow light are common sights, and jaywalking by pedestrians is also a regular occurrence. Drive slowly and attentively and do not let the local drivers stress you into speeding.
Morning rush hours can mean delays and a honking crescendo, so try to avoid going on the roads between 6 and 8 am, and also between 4 and 7 pm if you want to avoid the worst traffic times in London. Winter can bring ice and sleet to the city, so make sure to slow down and drive extra carefully to avoid slipping.

On rural roads outside the city limits, 80 km/h (49 mph) is allowed, while 100 km/h (62 mph) is the speed limit on highways. Speed limits are strictly enforced in Ontario so make sure to stick to them.
London is known as one of the cheapest cities regarding petrol prices with an average price of $1.30 CAD per liter ($0.97 USD, or around $3.88 per gallon).

For long-term parking, opt for one of the many municipal downtown parking lots, which are located on Oxford Street, Thames Street, or Richmond Street, and have an average rate of $2.00 CAD per hour ($1.50 USD).
