This location doesn't exist
Pros: We paid $50 for a cab from the ferry to the "location" at 90 Front. It's not an actual location. Get a shuttle (and save the cab fare) to the Terminal street location. Really annoying.
Cons: The location doesn't exist.

Pros: fast and easy
Cons: I didn't know that there was a shuttle service from the airport, Kayak should have included this information in the booking confirmation

No extra charge!
Pros: When the highway was closed completely due to a sinkhole, the company was understanding of the situation and chose not to charge us for the extra day due to circumstances.

Cheap rental for a long weekend but no airport shu
Pros: The car was great and customer service was excellent.
Cons: They don't have an airport shuttle. They do help by meeting you half way to downtown Nanaimo when you arrive but it was still a $30 cab ride from the airport to the meeting point. It was a long weekend and they were closed when I arrived to drop off so I took a cab and ended up costing me another $60 to get back to the airport. The rental was cheap but expect to pay an extra $90 in cab fares.

Super nice
Pros: They had everything ready when we got there to pick it up, and the guy helping us was super nice.
Cons: Not quite the car we expected to get, but if worked out fine. However, we had to take a taxi to get there, which was a little frustrating and expensive.

Pros: It was first time when rental staff explained everything in such detail way. There was no rush with car inspection. We walked around the car discussing what kind of scratches are under warranty and what to be aware of.
Cons: I have no complaints.

Rental restrictions not listed and no accountability
Cons: I reserved a compact car weeks in advance and when I arrived I was told National does rent to N drivers. Neither the website nor confirmation email indicated this, which is pretty important restriction. The lady said it's corporate policy and there's nothing she can do. Where is the accountability? Had to reserve last minute with another company 20min away at double the price.
2.8 Mediocre
30 May 2018
Pros: They drove me back to where I needed to be, so I didn't have to call a cab.
Cons: In Canada they charge you .35 cents a kil. after you drive 100 K.. That really adds up when driving from Victoria to Nanaimo! You have to read your contract VERY carefully. Our C$78.00 rental turned out to be almost C$200.00.! Also, when I returned the car I had forgotten to fill it up w/ fuel. The counter guy didn't want to let me fill it up myself and I had to demand that he did! Very poor service. They really rip you off. I will never rent another car from National again!

28 Aug. 2018
Pros: Great mileage Friendly staff who were very helpful
Cons: We onlly had 1200 km and Vancouver Island is a big island which we did not realize. We were unable to get more km without paying what would have been an exorbitant amount of money so had to take it back and get another contract. In spite of paying much more for the car why are you penalized if you take it back at a different location?
