The National Car Rental staff at the YYC (Calgary) were super efficient and helpful. We got a brand new Chrysler Pacifica. The car itself was excellent. The gas tank was only three-quarters full, however. We noted that as we were exiting. The lady at the exit was kind enough to mark it as only half full. The drop off was also great, with super friendly staff upon arrival. We very much recommend National Car Rental at YYC.Reviewed 11 Jul. 2023

Pickup was very poor. The staff at the front desk were very nice and professional. The problems began when selecting and picking up the car. We were asked to check the condition of a black car in an closed garage with poor lighting. Next to impossible. Then you have to show the problems to an agent who has some sort of screen to look further. About a dozen people were all leaving at once and so it took the better part of an hour from being shown the car to actually leaving the airport. Once we got it out into the light it was obvious we had missed a scratch. Upon dropping off, the process was very fast. However I wasn't given a receipt, and the one promised to my email never came. So now I have to chase it down. The car itself was otherwise fine, and was problem free.Reviewed 22 Jun. 2023

1. Vehicle was not sanitized/cleaned when picked up 2. Vehicle was not serviced (overdue on oil change), windshield fluid still had winter and not summer (bugs splatter would not get cleaned), etc 3. National reimbursed and compensated for the time and money spent on fixing the vehicle.Reviewed 1 Sep. 2022
