Cons:The Kia really is a horrible car to driveReviewed 24 Sep. 2020

Pros:Staff was friendly and professionalCons:NAReviewed 21 Apr. 2019
review fromkayak
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!Reviewed 30 May 2018

Pros:Great mileage Friendly staff who were very helpfulCons: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?Reviewed 28 Aug. 2018

Rental restrictions not listed and no accountabilityCons: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.Reviewed 5 Sep. 2017
