Rented a mid size sedan. Only options at pick up were minivan and large pick up truck. Both large vehicles to park in a congested city. But the guy working that night was incredibly nice and we made it work…

Car was comfortable, but very noisy.

The pickup and dropoff couldn't have been easier and the employees were really personable and easy to work with! The price of the rental, I thought, was a bit steep. But I understand that's the case everywhere given the pandemic and availability of cars.

Loved that we had an opportunity to pick our vehicle when we arrived. Several choices available and we chose the one we thought would give most room and fuel efficiency. Staff was super at pick up and drop off, car was clean and ran well.

They did not have anyone at the desk, so we had to wait in line in the garage to pick up our car. Everything was done on a handheld device, so we couldn't really read anything that we signed. the car was fine and in good shape. When we returned it, they charged almost twice as much as the contract was for.

Vehicle available was much larger than requested. Not very clean. Pickup was unnecessarily long.

Friendly service easy check in and out. Just a bit pricey but definitely worth it! Convenient location as well

The only thing new to me is that the car had 1/4 tank of gas when I received it. (Worked out okay as I left the car with the same amount as pick up.)
5.9 Okay3 Aug 2021
The car had not been cleaned as all the literature stated! Dirty dash and the carpets needed cleaning! Windshield wipers should have been replaced some time ago. driving the coast of Oregon was challenging several times due to poor visibility issues from the wiper blades. Car shook at highway speeds. Needs tires balanced and a possible front end alignment.
5.9 Okay16 Jul 2021
I called several days in advance and was told all was confirmed (after booking months in advance). I arrived at the pickup, only to be told they didn't have the minivan I reserved. They proceeded to say that the 3rd party sites didn't communicate well with Enterprise and hinted that I should have booked direct. I showed them my confirmation that had their logo and address while they attempted to get me to accept a 4-5 passenger small SUV. I was transporting part of a team, so that wouldn't work. They said to come back the next day because there were no minivans in the city...even though I had reserved one. So I drove the 25 minutes home and 25 minutes back the following morning. They found and cleaned one (great!) and attempted to charge me nearly double (not great!). Fortunately I caught it, and all ended well. Was just a HUGE hassle and delay, mixed with 3 employees not seeming to know what was going on.

The car was great, but there were close to $600 in hidden fees applied when I got to the counter. I’m not happy about that at all.

Absolutely nothing. Worst rental experience of my life. Car was dirty upon pickup. Had to make a few changes to my itinerary and their customer service line was busy or disconnected. It automatically more than doubled my charges. When I left a poor review at Avis, I was contacted by a customer service manager who said he would credit me back $200...and after 3 follow up emails over the course of 2 weeks, he has not responded. Horrible companyAbsolutely everything. Terrible experience and will never rent from them again

Drop off confusing if I wasn't experienced.1. Some one right there to check in the car or at least say they'd be right there. 2. Hot to open gas tanks written inside car. 3. How to change display back to mph instead of koh.

Easy pickup and the service desk guy was friendly and informative about the area where we were going. They were able to get the car early as our airline had changed our arrival time at the last minute.We came an hour early from our pickup time and had to wait a 15 minutes or so to get the minivan as it was upstairs. The driver was not the friendliest.

Drop off was easy because they were closed and all I did was drop the keys in a drop box.They had no cars available. They told me to go to the airport location to get a car. The airport location had no cars and said even if they did, they couldn’t honor a reservation for another location.
2.0 Mediocre20 Jun 2019
Nothing positive- I took a taxi to the location after booking and there were zero vehicles. I had booked an SUV, but they said they hadn’t had one returned in days.A vehicle onsite, an apology, or an attempt at a solution. The staff weren’t helpful in the least. Never renting from Hertz again :(

The store did not have any rental cars and I left without a vehicle. I was still charged though as the store wasn’t able to give me a refund.

We made a reservation but they didn't have a car for usThey didn't have a car for us so we had to book with another rental agency last minute and pay a higher fee for same day rental.

Misunderstanding multiple contractsThe service that the local office of Hertz provided us was outstanding, and the car was better than promised.We had three contracts in this transaction: One with Kayak, one with a car-rental website that I had never heard of, and finally, one with Hertz. We wanted to change the contract with Hertz so that my wife could also drive the rental car, so they cancelled their contract and proceeded to write a new one to include my wife. Unfortunately, that cancellation cost us $350 because it only cancelled one of the three contracts, and the other two were non-cancellable. We needed for the agent at Hertz to think through the process and realize that, with Kayak and the other agency involved, we wouldn't be able to alter the contract in any way without creating a new (additional) billing. The process cost us more than twice as much as expected.

They Changed the Price at the RegisterThey tried adding $130 for a 2 week rental for my Wife to also be a listed driver. It didn't go well after that. Went somewhere else and rented. Not sure if this was Kayak's problem or Hertz's but there's a few steps that need adjustment. Won't be using Kayak again - or Hertz until they get their stuff together.

Car hire excess insurance in Vancouver

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Vancouver car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Vancouver.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess 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 Vancouver car rental.
