Pros:The orginal price was 209$ and they end up charging 349$. Also, on the site, it's state 500$ deposit, and once on site, they want 1500$ deposit.Cons:Price is a scam. Make sure of what the customer will pay. Really a scam !Reviewed 30 Apr 2021

Pros:I scheduled my pick up at 8:00 since I was on a tight scheduled. John was helpful showed me the vehicle and did the walk-around with me. They also dropped me off at work which was fantastic.Cons:First off the $1500 hold is a bit excessive. The other thing is the scam with the unlimited mileage, don't advertise unlimited mileage if that is not the case knowing very well that once we have made the arrangements, the customer is at your mercy.Reviewed 24 Apr 2021

Cons:They advertised Unlimited Mileage but only had 300 kms per day. I had to argue to get more kms included which was ridiculous. Pickup was slow and drop-off as well they took their sweet time, so it was a slow process both times.Reviewed 25 Jun 2018

I never rent a car from them againPros:NothingCons:They advertised "unlimited" mileage, which was not true. They didn't save a car that I have reserved. They told me that I cannot switch the name of renter to charge additional driver. They increased the amount of additional charge of a driver per day without approval. They offered me a car with full of scratches and missed two spots of damages if I didn't point out. I never rent a car from them againReviewed 24 Apr 2018

The company staff was excellentPros:Pickup and dropoff was easy and smooth. The shuttle from the airport was excellent and staff was very friendly and helpful.the vehicle was next to new and very clean.Cons:I reserved a compact but none were available so I was given a jeep wrangler. The vehicle itself was next to new and very clean but was uncomfortable and was a beast on gas. I spent almost as much on gas for the 3 days I had it as I did for the rental. Would like if they had more compact cars availableReviewed 17 Apr 2018

Not the best Rental service for short term rentalsPros:The only good thing I can complement on Routes sevices was the receptionist I encountered with. No pick-up or drop-off is offer unless you're going to the YOW airport. The vehicle that I had smelled like smoke but yet they indicated no smoking in their vehicles. I'm a non-smoker so I was bothered by this. The price quote from kayak.com was different from what was presented at their office during pick-up and I their policy is to make a $1000 deposit which I found was outrageous for a two days car rental. I inquired about the discrepancies between the car rental price on kayak.com and in their system. To make the long story short, I ended up getting the price quote on kayak.com. I don't think I use their services again in the future. I'm still waiting for my deposit to be returned to my credit card.Cons:No pick-up or drop-off offered, $1000 deposit for a two days rental, and the vehicle had a cigarette smell in it.Reviewed 8 Mar 2018

poor communication and servicePros:nothingCons:The order confirmation said the location would be open until 11:30pm. They weren't and instead closed at 10pm. I was left stranded at the airport without a car. I had to take a taxi to my hotel. The next morning, I had to demand they pick me up and bring me to the location (which they did, but on their schedule, not mine.) Once I finally got to the rental counter, although I was able to PAY the FINAL bill with a debit card, I could not rent (credit card hold) with a debit card. They wanted a $500 (!) hold in order to rent a $90 car rental. I couldn't use my debit cards, so I asked to split the $500 across 2 credit cards. They couldn't do that either (not sure if it was incompetence or policy). I left without renting a car, angry, frustrated and going to their competitor.)Reviewed 8 Dec 2017

Excellent Service and ValuePros:I was very impressed with the service, friendliness and professionalism of the business. It was fast, simple and easy. I wad picked up at the airport and brought to my car. It was an upgrade, beautiful Nissan Pathfinder with all the bells and whistles. I had to drop the car off quickly and it took them 1 minute to process my paperwork and then I had a private ride to the airport right to my gate. The whole experience was five star. Thank you Routes!Cons:There is nothing negative to say. It was honestly amazing!Reviewed 3 Dec 2017

Pros:No hassle getting the rental, and not that far from the airport. Overall a good rental experience. I would rent again from this company. I was surprised that the gas tank was not full, only5/8 of a tank but I did not have to bring it back full. Only with the same amount of gas that they had in itReviewed 1 Nov 2017

Worst costumer serviceCons:I tried to contact this company a week before my rental to figure out some of the details (where they were located, how to get there, etc.?). I sent them an email on a Wednesday. On Monday I still hadn't heard anything so I called their 1-800 number. I was told on the phone that they couldn't help me because I had already put in an email request. First of all, it should not take 5 days to respond to an email. Secondly, if it does take 5 days to respond to an email when someone calls you should have the ability to help! I promptly cancelled my reservation. Three days later I finally received an email back.Reviewed 21 Oct 2017
