Beware the car rental prices at Vancouver airport are high. We’ll catch a domestic flight to a community closest to our vacation destination and rent locally in the future.

Alamo gave my car away
2.0 Mediocre11 Jan 2022
They gave me a vehicle with low tire pressure and no windshield washer fluid in the middle of winter. I had to spend time getting these things taken care of on a one-way from BC to AB. The management was unavailable to respond in a timely manner (more than 24 hours later) and they did not respond to my request for a refund. Luckily, when I got to my destination, they (staff for all airport rental companies) told Alamo to refund me for the inconvenience and for the fact that they issued an unsafe vehicle that was not properly checked. Will not rent here again.

I am Brazilian and I rented a car through princeline via Kayak on 07/21/2022 for a daily rate starting on 07/22/2022 at 9:00 and return on 07/23/2022 at 9:00. trip number 120-466-195-17 Routes Car Rental Car Rental Confirmation Number: NRLPPye00553009 paid in advance with My Visa credit card totaling CAD 116.28. When I arrived at the Routes Car Rental store at the scheduled time, the rental agent refused to Carry out the rental of the car, claiming that the company would not rent to a foreigner Brazilian nationality who did not have an international driver's license. I asked her to cancel my payment because according to her it was the company's policy not to rent to Brazilians, that is, it was an initiative of the rental company not to rent me. So she said that the cancellation and refund of the amount paid would have to be directly with the website that sold me the service, in this case you. My daughter , who speaks English , called the priceline customer service and the attendant said he would confirm with Routes and in then me I would email you the solution. Until the At the moment I have not received any email and The amount was debited from my credit card. I request a return and the due refund of the amount charged because the company Routes did not provide the service to me, alleging the company's internal policy Yours sincerely

Booked a small car a month ago then called them 3 days ago before reaching the airport and confirmed my booking and the lady sent me email about the confirmation and mileage rules , then when I reach the airport coming from AB , I saw a women with a baby was fighting with the shuttle’s driver , then reached the office to get the car, then was my turn and the guy at the office said I don’t have a car for u come tomorrow !! I already paid on Expedia website .. so I got angry and shouted , then another guy came in and told him give her the white car and said to him secretly something which I did not hear… this is the customer service I faced when I arrived Vancouver. Not sure why we had to fight to get a car which I already paid for and confirmed!

Rental Car From HellIt was the right size.Wait time was very long picking up the car, they seemed under staffed. The electronic and USB connections were not working! Therefore our phones would not charge and our GPS systems would not work!! The GPS system in the car was stuck on demo mode and kept shutting off after about two minutes. Navigation was a nightmare! They also failed to tell us that the gas cap lid was a spring loaded push plate, so we wasted a lot of time looking for a release lever before we figured it out.

Very easy to rent a vehicle.Employee's were friendly and helpfulIt was a little difficult to find the rental location. We did not see any signs for the car rental locations until after we were out in the parking lot.
7.6 Good19 Jun 2017
The car was very nice - clean, newer and worked well. Drop off was easy.1. When we picked up the car, the driver had to be the name of the person who made the reservation. I had intended for my husband to be the driver, but since I had used my own name for the reservation, I had to be the driver, which I was not comfortable with. We have never before had this experience and we have rented many cars in the past. We were told the only way to change the driver is to cancel the reservation and start all over again with a new reservation. As we had arrived at 9pm and it was getting late and we had had a tiring long day, we did not want to start all over. 2. Another thing we found annoying was that there were $103 of additional taxes and fees we had to pay upon pick-up that we were not advised of when we made the reservation. When I reserved the car on line, it was because Hertz seemed to have the lowest price. With the additional $103 that we ended up having to pay, it was probably the most expensive of all of the companies. And this was not for additional insurance or anything like that. It was taxes and fees slapped on. The attendant said it had been in the small print. Again, we have never before had this experience with a rental car. Usually, the price you see in the large print is the price you pay and no more. Because of this, we would not rent from Hertz again.
6.4 Good12 Jun 2017
I liked that they had the vehicle we needed available. The vehicle was clean. The pick up went well.They said using my insurance was ok. Didn't explain that they would refuse it if something happened. We had a small chip in th corner from a rock that was thrown from a pick up in front of us. We filed a claim. When we returned the car she wouldn't talk to us about it just kept repeating no third parties no third parties handed me a bill for$250 and wouldn't explain anything. Refused. Horrible customer service and we will not be using hertz again.

There was no shuttle to take me to the off site pickup and no offsite address was given to me. I picked up the car at the Vancouver airport where they initially honored the kayak-National on-line price but charged me another $800. when I returned the car in perfect condition and fully gased. Customer Service processed my service objection but I haven't received confirmation of a charge reversal. I feel I've been scammed.

We liked: the way we were treated by all the National folks. The car, a Hyundai Kona, was just perfect. I'd buy one if we didn't already have a year-old SUV. We didn't like: the really long line to get the car. The fact that while we thought we booked the car at the airport, we were actually supposed to pick it up elsewhere. And we really hated that we were charged a whole lot more for showing up early because of a last-minute flight change (although your agent was able to mitigate that a little).

We ordered a Honda Civic or the like , and got a Kia Sorrento SUV. We wanted a compact car, not an SUV, but it didn't happen. The Sorrento was a very nice vehicle, clean and in good working order, just a lot harder to park in our tiny hotel parking space, as our own cars are small. Second, when we ordered the car, we had no idea how far off-site the Economy office was. We waited at the pick-up area for an hour, and no one picked us up. We called the office, and had to leave a message, but no one returned the call. Finally, we gave up and hailed a cab to take us there. We were very tired at the end of this trip, that not being picked up was not what we needed.

We were told that we should have informed them via phone call (we tried calling twice once we landed but no one answered the phone) and told to “just get a refund”. Kayak service representatives were very helpful, but the car rental service was not.

Everything went relatively smoothly. They were understanding and gave us a couple more hours for the return. The price are as good if not better than other companies.The only downside that I would mention is that I had booked a Dodge Charger "or similar". They gave me a Mazda CX3. I don't think they are quite comparable. I didn't complain because the price was too low for a nice car. I must say that it is a bit deceiving though.

Great car, drove well, man at the counter was really nice.They didn't seem to know anything about the online booking system that I used, I ended up paying almost double because I wanted a GPS system which upgraded me to a nicer vehicle. However, I booked a Rav4 which is pretty comparable to a Chevy Esquire. I just feel like I overpaid for the upgrade.

OverpricedCar was clean, ran well (Toyota Camry).I only had the car 5 days and was charged the weekly rate. I was given only 1 day of insurance back when I brought it back early. On your website it doesn't mention the $30/day for insurance on top of the rental charge. I was led to believe at booking everything was included. Too expensive.

the car was smaller than i expected from an SUV, but it worked out fine. also, i asked for a ski rack at time of reservation and also called thrifty the day before we went to vancouver. both times i was told that my request was recorded, but not guaranteed. so i thought there was a decent chance that i would get a ski rack since i requested it so far in advance. when we arrived at the pick up location, i was told that they do not have ski racks in that location and never have them available for customers. that was kind of weird.

I had booked the vehicle for 8 days and they didn't bother to call to me to check in and merely just gave my booking away to someone else. We were stuck at the airport for 4 hours trying to find another available vehicle.

Very friendly service, car in perfect condition and excellent quality to price ratio. Would be nice to have a better description of how to find and/or reserve the pickup shuttle at the airport.

It is a shady place. There is no shuttle from the airport. You need to call to arrange pickup but nobody answers the phone. Eventually arrived at the provided address by cab. My reservation was not honored and I ended up empty handed. Avoid at all cost.

Very disorganized drop off and pick up. Sketchy location. This is not part of the airport and if your flight is late your car is not garanteed. I wish this was explicitly stated when booking

Do not rent from the company. One of the shadiest operations I’ve ever witnessed. Terrible customer service.

No line up, quick easy and accessible location. Got a ride back to the airport from the guy in the car we returned. Would highly recommend.
