Jeff Vancouver Airport 02 October 2017
Friendliness of service at desk and pick up/ drop off. Plenty of room for four bags with rear seats flat. We ordered a Grand Cherokee. Got a Wrangler Sahara. Closest available to booking ???? It was a truck. Poor visibility. Uncomfortable ride. Difficult for us seniors to enter and exit. Disappointed with vehicle. Perhaps we booked too late.
Ian Vancouver Airport 01 October 2017
No pressure to purchase extra insurance or to upgrade. Canada never seems to be pushy with this. The cost of car hire in North America in general is more expensive than Europe, mainly because of all the different insurances, airport pick-up surcharges and taxes.
Roger Vancouver Airport 29 September 2017
Friendly very efficient staff, and no problem to them that we were early at pick up time! No extras to pay at the desk. No selling at all by the agent to pay any extra than what we had booked online. Nothing!!

Got the requested car, but a cheap low powered version Underpowered car, lack of SatNav
Sean Vancouver Airport 23 September 2017
Good clean car and speedy service Drop off was quick but very chaotic!
Jean Vancouver Airport 17 September 2017
Overall a very hassle free and positive experience. We appreciated the effecient and friendly way that Vanessa handled the vehicle return, very good! I would have preferred the more modest car we booked as larger car more difficult to park etc. Most people would have been delighted! Returning the car empty a bit difficult!

Johan Vancouver Airport 12 September 2017
Very nice upgrade to Chrysler pacifica.. great car! The drop off destination in the gps was way off.. we ended up on a industrial zone a few kilometers away from the AirPort and had to ask for guidance.. the only time we really needed to use the gps it failed us...
