  • In order to rent a car in Canada, you must be at least 21 years old and you must have had your driver’s license for at least one year. When you book a Victoria Airport car rental, if you are under the age of 25, you will most likely be charged an additional daily fee as a Young Driver.

We arrived 2 hours early as they had changed our flight. The clerk was a bit rude as we were early. Gave us an upgrade to an Audi as no other SUV’s available. The Audi was too small for 4 adults and 4 large suitcases. Got good gas mileage.

We booker it online and everything was set. We landed in Victoria, we called the number to take the shuttle to get to the office to pick up the car. No one would pick up. 20 mins later someone finally did and informed us that unfortunately they dont have any cars left so the reservation is cancelled. We didnt reveive any info about this, we were left at the airport scramblimg to find a car rental that can help us, but everyone was sold out. When we found a car available, it cost us more than it should with similar type of car because we tried to book on the spot. This is very poor customer service with Alamo, i understand that things happen but communicating this to us even through email ahead of time would’ve helped us go for a plan B. But telling us that they dont have any cars left after we’ve booked way ahead of time and told us the news the moment we’re trying to pick up the car is totally wrong. I’ve travelled a lot and dealt with car rentals all the time and this is by far the worse experience i’ve had, will never book Alamo again.
