staff were helpful, vehicle quite new and easy to handle that snow/winter tires are not the default on all vehicles in Calgary in winter. having to pay extra for something that is common sense for that area was frustrating.

I have rented through this location on several occasions previously. However, thus was my first time of doing so on the internet. Its a great location and I have to applaud all of the people that I have dealt with. The franchisee is to be commended as well. They have put together a staff that is always courteous and helpful.

I have to say that the young lady (sorry I cannot remember her name) was so good, friendly and helpful that I can honestly say made all the difference to hiring from Thrifty. If she worked for me I would be so proud to have her as an employee. Thank you. Reversing camera not very clear.

I had worried about this aspect of our trip for ages before, but it was very easy and straightforward Liked the upgrade which involved gps in the car. It certainly made a huge difference to our 3 weeks in BC and Alberta
