We had the car rental at the Toronto Pearson Airport. They did not give us clear instructions as to how to leave the car park or on return. We had an early flight on return so we were frantically looking for the way to return to the car rental. Unfortunately, it was not clear to us that we were supposed to go on the Arrival level of car rental rather than the Departure level. The drive to enter was One Way, so we had to circled twice before trying to get in on the Arrival level. Also, the key drop was not made clear to us because the office didn’t open until 7:00am!

The rental procedure was pretty straight forward. Communication was good and price was not too bad at all. Staff were friendly, courteous, communicative and facilitative. The only downside was that, I found driving the car I got to be a little difficult, (seemed pretty slippery on the road, considering we are not in the full winter yet.) Maybe it was just a one off, or perhaps the tire choice needs to be improved on. I would have hated to have this vehicle during “black ice” events. Outside of that A+++++

One Budget agent was working whilst a line of disgruntled customers continued to grow. The Dollar/Thrifty counter, however, had three agents working. My car wouldn't start on the evening of my return which almost made me miss my international flight. I eventually left the car at my condo and grabbed a cab. I can only imagine the ineptitude I'm about to face in sorting this out.

We had issues with trying to drop the car off. The direction to your drop off location was very poor, I drove around the airport many times until my wife called the airport customer service center to get direction to the drop off site. We called the budget number but it was hard to get a hold of anyone and whan we did they were not very helpful. It would be helpful to have a hand out with a map or written instructions on where to go to get to the drop off location and better signage once you are in the parkade, either on the pavement with directional arrows or over head signs.

I was not able to complete my rental as the agent could not get the credit card machine to work. The chip and tap functions were not working and he could not get the mag strip to read. He refused to simply type in the Credit card details which is all the mag strip contains. I had to go to a competitor (AVIS) who had not issues completing the financial transaction with the same credit card. I would have expected that a card rental company have a fully functional credit card machine available.

We waited 50 minutes to be picked up. Perhaps they were waiting for other folks to show up before sending the shuttle out. We were alone when we called but the place was crowded by the time they finally came. There wasn’t enough space on the shuttle for my kids when it finally came because there were so many other people. I had to leave them and the suitcases while I went to get the car and pick them up after. If you have your own insurance that covers rentals (credit card), they will charge you an additional 11.95 a day so after all was said and done, Economy was not a better deal than the other places. The staff seemed miserable working there. No smiles or friendliness at all. They were sufficiently professional but all seemed very unhappy to be there - from the shuttle drivers to the counter people I encountered coming and going.
2.0 Mediocre27 Jul 2022
The car itself worked well for our purposes. I had scheduled to rent from 7am however upon arrival not only was the rental place not open, they would not send someone for the advertised airport shuttle until after 7. At pick-up the car was not clean/ready and had a dent in the back end. I waited 45 minutes to have it ready. I was also charged a mystery ‘insurance transfer fee of 11.95 daily which in my research does not exist. Upon drop off, they were going to charge me for the damage, however, I had taken pictures so they could not. I will never rent here again

I was so disappointed. Their credit card machine didn’t recognize my credit card. They said “ this happens all the time” I was so worried I would be stuck without a car. I walked over to the Avis counter and I had a car organized in 10 min and my credit card worked just fine. Be careful!!

While the vehicle was fine, the price was higher than I contracted for on Kayak! Enterprise support was pretty useless and wouldn't do anything other than say contact Kayak and that sometimes Kayak's pricing was in US dollars. I had a copy of my reservation and it didn't specify which type of currency it was. When I logged into Kayak it specified US$. While Enterprise didn't give me the price I thought I had contracted, they did give me a better one. How can Kayak be so stupid as to quote prices in US$ when booking a rental in Canada? Definitely will consider their actions when booking in the future!

I will never again deal with this terrible company. To say that I made a mistake is an understatement. The clause that you need to put down a $1500 deposit for the rental is crazy no real rental company does this and I only had $1270 available on my card due to a large Purchace I made that week. Like I said I’ll never ever use these crooks again. And will do everything I can to make sure everyone knows what a terrible company this is. Oh yes I guess the big kicker is that I’ve still not gotten even a dime back for the pre paid rental. So no car and no refund. That to me is a scam. MM

What they advertised is NOT what they actually contracted. The vehicle was different and they advertised UNLIMITED mileage. The day before my rental, they emailed me the cost of mileage and said UNLIMITED didn’t apply because I was a local renter, and not someone from out of Province. There is no one to answer their phones, it’s at the airport and no place to park…. This rental place is a joke. DONT waist your time!!!

Over a week ago I booked a car for 8 pm not realizing that the company closes at 8 pm. My flight was delayed so I missed picking up the car. I had to Uber home (45 min) and Uber back (45 min) the next morning. I called the company ahead of time to let them know and they had zero solutions. Then when I was to return the car yesterday no one would pick up the phone and there was no way to add another week to my rental so I had to drive to the location at routes (45 min) to request an extension. They gave me another car (downgraded ) for more money. The car was smelled very strong so I asked to change cars. The other cars were all the same strong yucky smell. The guy at the desk said no problem if I wanted to cancel my reservation. So I gave him the keys back after one hour of signing the contract. The charges still are on my visa and he tells me I have to deal with the booking company. So I've paid over $400 and a $1500 deposit against my visa and didn't get the rental. I've emailed the booking company and phoned them but to no avail. This whole experience both times have not been pleasant as it was extremely time consuming and wasteful money

Huge scammers!!!I have nothing good to say!We went to pick up the car and they said we get only 200km per day and then it’s $.021 per KM. So we requested to see if they can do something because we are on a budget and $200 is quite steep for renting a car for 3 days and especially when I reserved it online it said unlimited but Apparently that doesn’t apply to local residents of Ontario. So the guy at the counter said I’ll give you more KM and lower the charge to $0.15 per KM and we were grateful. But little did I know that they put on the basic insurance which was close to $45 A DAY!!! And I declined it too because I had my own insurance!! And to top it off they tried to charge us for a scratch on the front bumper which was already there. Ahmed who i think is the manager said let me look at our records and then finally said “oh it was already there”. I was completely shocked when our total was $311 for 3 days!!! The insurance was more than the car rental. From $90 we ended with $311! It was my bad for not looking at the reviews before I booked this place because everyone pretty much has the same complain. I will complain with the better business bureau because this place needs to stop ripping people off of their hard earned money! i will also advise Kayak to stop doing business with this company based on the reviews and the fact that these guys are scammers. Oh by the way this location is in Mississauga on airport road.

Great guys, there are not located at the airport but the shuttle arrived quickly and it took around 5 minutes to get to their office. They also brought us back to the airport when we returned the car. The whole procedure for picking up/dropping off took 10-15 minutes.

The check-in and return process was efficient and friendly and the car was in excellent shape. The pricing was quite competitive. I will use this company again on my next trip to Toronto for sure.

This car was priced at less than half the rate of the big companies so I was nervous but they picked us up as advertised at the Viscount Station. Their lot is about ten minutes drive away and is a small operation but they were very professional and thorough. The car was low mileage and everything was good. The return was seamless and they dropped us at the Terminal. Excellent value.

Not easy to find where Payless is picking up customer to bring us to the car. Car outside not clean at all (due to rain...), inside not good too. Not full tanked but we gave back with the same level without any problem. We had to wait 45 min that Payless employee (he was allown in the office) drived us back direction airport. Jacques

Closed before I picked up the carI reserved a pick up time between 11-12pm through kayak. Payless was not located at the airport, yet the address shows up as the airport. They will drop off cars at the airport, but you have to call them first to let them know you arrive. This created 2 challenges for me: 1 - no reception as I don't have a Canadian phone service provider & 2 - Payless was closed at 10 so when I was finally able to call, no one picked up anyways. Unfortunately, even though I clearly stated my needs on the reservation, Payless could not provide what I needed, I was in a foreign country & needed to get to my hotel asap as it was getting late, sooo I rented a car from a competitor (on Memorial Day weekend) and paid about 4 times more. Thanks Payless.See above. Everything.

Rent elsewhere when landing in TorontoInexpensiveNo signs at the airport. No instructions on how to get to the rental counter. Had to call them to find out. Had to wait for half hour to get picked up from the train station and only after making several calls. No apologies from the staff.

Sexist sign in the officethe carThere was a sign hung on the wall reading, "A quiet man is a thinking man, and a quiet woman is usually mad." its 2018. are these sexist stereotypes worth advertising INSIDE your business?

Nice car, cheap priceThey’re far away from the airport, wasted an hour till I got to their location, rarely answer their phone, and when the lady answered the phone, she gave me the worst directions ever on where to wait for their shuttle! Will not do business with them anymore!

The hours of operation are “normal” but when you are working around flights leaving from Pearson airport, many itineraries fall outside of what are normal. My arrival and departure times fell outside of there operating hours so i had to wait until they opened and had to make my own arrangements to get to and the airport because my flight was not scheduled during their normal hours of operation.

Although they advertised unlimited kilometers and confirmed this when i booked the car, when I picked up the car at the airport they said they didn't have unlimited kilometres. Although i prepaid for the rental in full at the time I booked it, they charged my card for kilometers and additional things after I returned the car. I am currently pursuing this with BBB, Competition Bureau, police, etc.

The vehicle was in good shape but prices can go up in a blink of a second by paying for extra hidden charges. Also, when i was pre-booking i made sure the mileage was UNLIMITED and then to my surprise when i went to pick the car up, i was told i had 1200km for the rent period. The day i went to drop the car off, i waited for the agent for more than 15 minutes and when he finally was there, he simply helped another customer who came AFTER i did and when i contested the behavior, the agent simply asked me to leave the keys on the counter if i did not want to wait. Wouldn’t recommend for lack of professionalism!

The company has not made it clear to its clients at the time of booking that credit card rental collision insurance is not enough and that the client will be asked to pay extra per day at the time of pickup.

They haven’t mentioned about not renting car to G2 license drivers anywhere while booking. When I visited the place they simply said to walk away as i am G2 driver. It was a waste of time, it would have been good if they mentioned about this while booking online.

Bullied and ScammedNothing at allYour Discount Car Rental location didn't have any cars, saying they had rented out 30 the day before and none came back. So I sat there with others for an hour being told "15 minutes till we take you to another location with cars" Turns out the other location is a really poor rental company named Advance Car and Truck Rental (Google 2 star rating with reviews of customers being bullied) that just happens to have the cars we need.. I'm pretty sure they have an agreement going on between the two because its too convenient and this other place wouldn't survive without Discount dumping customers on them. To sum it up, they told me to drop the car off whenever I wanted at Discount and they'd get it in the morning. My contract with them says I have it until 7:25am. They called me 4 times during dinner to threaten me to bring it back to their location by 11pm, or they will keep calling and start charging my credit. So not only did I miss Thanksgiving thanks to all of this, but now I'll have to dispute their "Upcharges" with my credit company. And quite frankly, because of how this was all handled, I'm never going to book with your company again, and I'll never recommend anyone I know book with you either. Sorry to say, but these guys were so rude and threatening on the phone and in person(shoving me out of the way when I dropped off the car) that I'm completely turned off of going through your company.

Europcar is the biggest scamI arrived and they offered to rent me the car I had booked for $551 for $2900. This company needs to be sued for fraud and misrepresentation. Their customer service was evil and at the same time they had no office in Toronto. They did not rent me a car in the end because I refused to pay 6x the original price.

Cancelled Car rental without notificationNothing. Worst.Landed in Toronto all the way from Edmonton. Went to discount car rental dealership by taxi( they supposed to provide suttle but they don’t) . Found that they canceled reservations without any reason. No notifications nothing( they rent car to different person on higher price). Rent a car for one week. Treat me very bad. No help nothing. Talk rudely (even it’s there fault). Spent 3 hours but no luck and no reason, no response. Need to rent a car from other company as everything was planned for my vacation. Ended with paying $500 instead of $130 for one week car rental plus waste my day for vacation plus all this hassle.

Was a good car, they didn't clean it before giving it to me, and when I went to return it the found "new damage" on the car, which wasn't obtained during my rental time, and now charged me 1500 to fix it. Wouldn't rent from there again.

Top tips for hiring a car at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport

  • While exploring Toronto and all it has to offer, organising car hire at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport will open up all options for you. There is public transit available, though to avoid navigating an unfamiliar transit system and the crowds, set schedules and routes, having your own car is a great option to get around and see what you want, when you want.
  • When renting a car in Canada, there is no requirement for an International Driving Permit for UK license holders, though individual rental companies may still have it as their own requirement. Check with the Toronto Pearson Intl Airport car hire you are booking through to see if this is needed, and if so you can organise one at any Post Office for £5.50 and it’s a same-day service.
  • The process to return your car hire at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport may be different between companies, as there are two main locations of the offices and some others offering a shuttle service. If you are booking through a Toronto Pearson Intl Airport car hire office located in the airport itself, you will likely return to a designated rental returns area that you can follow signs to find on approach to the airport. When you collect your hire car, the staff at the office will give you all the details and directions to return your rental at the end of your travels.
  • Serving the busy city of Toronto and its surrounds, Toronto Pearson Intl Airport is busy most of its opening hours. You may find slightly less activity if you are transiting through this airport on a weekend, though the reduction in traveller traffic is not a huge amount. You will find the airport efficient and easy to navigate, so your journey from landing to driving away in your Toronto Pearson Intl Airport car hire should be fairly simple and not take too much time.
