You should have cars first then run the company. We booked 2 times within 2 weeks firstly they booked the car for us then the next day when we were ready to pickup the car they are informing us that they don't have cars right now , we have to have another 2-3 days. Such a poor management of staff, service and specially cars. Get the cats first so people can book when they urgently need it.

Pros:

Well I haven't seen anybody I just dropped the car. The office was closed, but the cariboo lodge reception was open.

Cons:

The underground car park is a bit narrow. It's difficult to park, therefore it's quite scary with a rental car.

These guys were very friendly, seemed genuinely pleased I was bringing them such a nice new car (not that I had anything to do with it), gave the car a once over and I was on my way.

Pros:

It took a while to get used to the car's buttons but it was a very good and clean car. The second person I spoke to who brought the car keys to the railroad station was very helpful and clear on return instructions. The return went very smoothly.

Cons:

The 1st person I spoke to on ten (10) calls repeatedly gave me wrong directions for RR station pickup. I said repeatedly that I had was having trouble with phone reception but he kept saying "Call me when you get there." Also they didn't answer phones between 11:30am & 1pm on pick up or return days.

Pros:

Good car and value for money

Cons:

I arranged to collect the car at 9am, at 8:59 the Banff Avis office called me unfortunately I missed the call as I was on the way to the office to collect the car. When I arrived the customer agent advised there were no cars available until 11am. I advised her I had booked the car for 9am however the agent advised she called me to change the time at 8:3am. When I checked my phone the call was missed at 8:59, 1 minute before collection. This took 2 hours of our car driving through Banff National Park and we couldn't do this when it had got dark after 6pm.

Sep. 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Price beat the competition.

Cons:

The full size I reserved due to hip replacement was not available so they shoehorned me into a low slung Mustang. The pickup location is in a mall with no street number on the building nor marquee placard outside...hard to find. I trusted the agent to point out the dings/damage to the dirty car and he overlooked the chip in the windshield...though when I found him after 20 minutes upon return he verbally agreed it had been present at pickup.

Pros:

i got an upgrade on the car when I arrived

Cons:

Their credit card machine was down... so they took an imprint of my card, left my yellow carbon copy in the car and when i called to make sure they destroyed it, no one answered, have yet to get a call back. Also left a small gift from a local giftshop in the back (just a magnet, touristy stuff, and have yet to hear back from the rental car place)... did not have enough people working for such a touristy place.
