Pros: Great value for money and fast service.
30 Jul 2017
Cons: The agent was very reluctant to alert me when recommendations they made were going to be extra cost. By the time she was done with her recommendations and I asked for a price it was double price on the site. Needless to say I did not complete rental. A felt very bait and switched!!

Misleading - generic specialty car too small
Pros: Clean car, easy pick up and drop off
Cons: Generic specialty car was supposed to seat 5 people and 4 bags. I got a Mazda 3, which definitely does not. Rental agent told me it's supposed to be 5 people and 2 large bags and 2 small bags

terrible, unprofessional, hidden fees (more than $50 than expected)
Pros: The lady at the desk was very nice
Cons: I was charged more than I was supposed to. The guy who was supposed to check the car was unprofessional and rude. He did not greeted us, he did not have a pen to put on the document that the gaz was not fulled as result they charged us more than $60 for the gas (3/4 full). I had to ask for my invoice as they charged me without letting me. I have not been refunded yet but it seems like it has been done but no updated invoices. "weird fees " that increased my invoice by $50. Don't waste your money and time there. Budget or enterprise are more professional and easy to deal with.

Pros: It was convenient and quick. The price was great.
Cons: The man (Indian nationality) working in the parking garage basement, who was there to help us was rude, not only to us but another customer. He lacked customer service skills.

Dollar rent a car did not honor the reservation, did not say "Sorry"
Cons: The Dollar car rental agent in Vancouver told us that they were sold out. Did not say sorry, did not suggest an alternative.
28 Mar 2017
Late and cancelled
Pros: They did upgrade my car but did not honor the price I reserved
Cons: I was 5 hours late to my pickup time due to airline issues. When I got there they said because I was late they cancelled my car. They would not honor the price. I had to pay an extra 150 dollars to get a rental car from them. Would not use again

Rent from this dude!
Pros: We landed in Vancouver (3:35pm) and hurried through customs to try to get our rental location by the time they closed (4pm). There was no way a taxi cab could've got us there in time, but the gentleman at the Dollar cat rental stayed a little later than he needed to and actually picked us up from the airport! The rental was in excellent condition and was great on fuel economy. Rental/return was easy and hassle free. Overall I was VERY satisfied with the price and customer service. Highly recommending this location to anyone in the Vancouver area!

Bait and switch
Cons: I booked a Large Special on your site. I even got a message saying I got a good deal for a Large vehicle. When I got to the site, they told me the reservation was only for a compact and I needed to pay $$$ more to get a Large. Classic bait and switch, deceptive marketing. I switched to another provider.

Cons: Wait to return car was longer than expected

Don't get fooled by "winter tires"
Cons: I end up paying twice the price because the guy said winter tire is necessary but if you're planning stay in Vancouver, you don't need it. Make sure you ask them if you're paying in USD or CAD.
28 Jan 2017
Pros: Very positive exoer8ence. NO hassles checking in to get car or on return. Convenient on airport location.
10 Jan 2017
Pros: I didn't have a credit card and only debit card they cancelled my booking. I feel it's highly unfair. There are ppl in this world who manage without a credit card and car rental companies should cater to all. I then got it from another dealer who accepted cash and debit cards.

Poor Communication of Pick-Up Capabilities
Cons: The staff communicated that they might be able to offer pickup service at either 1:45 or 2pm for my 2pm reservation when I had called in an hour earlier to give them advance notice and make the request. They informed me that they would call me back at my contact number by no later than 2pm to confirm. Received no calls at that time, and when I had tried calling their local number twice at 2pm and at 2:30 pm they never answered and it always directed to their central reservation call center whom also was unable to get a hold of the local office. Finally, around 3pm, I just paid for a cab ride there myself.

No one there and charged double
Pros: Where not there after 11 or 30 minutes after accepting my booking. Took cab next day and it was twice as much as quote. Pretty terrible experience with this company at this airport
Cons: See above

Vancouver to Seattle and Back
Pros: Easy and fast transaction. The car (Passat) was clean and comfortable, and most importantly affordable.
8 Nov 2016
Pros: Everything was excellent But there is always that tricky part of insurances where you finally don't know how much are you paying. Why is that hard to include the insurance in the original price?
23 Oct 2016
sales lady was too eager to sell us insurance
Pros: check in was great - no nonsense, fast, efficient
Cons: when I declined she lost interest in me, and her friendliness evaporated

They would not accept an American Debit Card in Va
Cons: Get all of your offices in US and Canada to accept American debit cards.
11 Jul 2016
Pros: The price is good compared to airport rental
Cons: This is a one-man operated car rental in a small office. There is only one guy managing (or owning) 2 car rental companies in the same office. When I got there the parking lot was empty, no cars. There were 2 customers when i walked in, both waiting for cars. Apparently there was no cars in the lot. one of the ladies waiting for the cars told me she was there the day before and had to come back because there was no cars the day before..Luckily the employee( owner) called other rental place and successfully located 3 cars for all 3 of us. We all hopped in his car to take us the Discount rental to continue with our car rental. After about 1 hr, i was able to get my car and start my vacation. Quite a experience with this rental, i don't think I will go back to them again, eventhough the price is cheaper.

Smoke smelling car
Pros: Was a good car for the cost.
Cons: Car smelled strongly of cigarette smoke.
27 Dec 2015
Pros: There was a problem with our car, not a big one but it needed a service check. The people from Dollar were very helpful and offered us a good deal.
12 Oct 2015
Cons: Booked 7 day car rental for my Vancouver trip. When I landed and called the rental office, it got redirected to a number where I was told that this location is closed for the day however I can visit the Dollar rental office which is located at the airport and the same booking would be honored. When I reached the rental office, I was told they don't have the car and even if they did, they wouldn't be able to honor the booking price as airport has extra taxes/fees. The car they were offering was overly expensive and I ended up not taking the rental at all. Instead I had to look for something last minute from hertz next door who were much more cooperative.
