It was good. The pick up was fine. Car was as expected. Drop off was really quick. Price wasn’t fantastic but was reasonable. All of in all a good experience. The only negative was trying to get car play to work. The customer service person did try to help but couldn’t. We got it working the second day.Reviewed 1 Dec. 2023

Had a reservation for a SUV and they didnt have any! But they had the BMW SUV and she would give that one! Told me to go sit over there and wait till one comes in? Took a taxi to my hotel instead!Reviewed 24 Oct. 2022

Pickup was average, drop off was quick, although the return lanes were confusing and disorganized - not enough space at the Edmonton airport facility for returns - I would hold up Houston's George Bush airport as the "gold standard" in this respect. All in all, it was a good rental experience - car was clean, in "as new" conditioning, and economical to operate.Reviewed 23 Oct. 2022

They do not accept BC N licenses even over 25. This knowledge was not provided until the counter. Had to cancel and wait 2 hours for another rental.Reviewed 22 Aug. 2022

everything was ok. We had a very hard time reaching a person to extend another day (10+ missed calls) but overall ok experience. Would be nice to have a more affordable large car option for mountain drivingReviewed 30 May 2022

Very reasonably pricedPros:The price was rightCons:Car could have used winter tires...especially since it was December in Edmonton.Reviewed 3 Dec. 2018
review fromkayak
quote was completely wrongCons:When I went to pick up the car, I discovered the quote I'd been given through Carrentals was impossible price and the car rental place couldn't honour it. It was a shock after a long journey and I didn't accept the rental. I can't understand what the benefit is to anyone to give too-good-to-be-true quotes which can't be honoured. Who wins?Reviewed 29 Dec. 2017

Quoted Rate Not HonouredCons:I am glade that it was just a car rental rate not honoured and not an air fare or I would really be screwed!!!Reviewed 15 Dec. 2017
