The excellent customer service of pick up and drop off. Even though Driving Force was not located at the airport, and needing to take a 20min. taxi ride to the pick up/drop off area, the price point is still attractive and affordable. Thank you to the Driving Force team and best wishes!

KAYAK

Pros:

For me, it was also handy to have a city (vs airport) location.

Cons:

I didn't appreciate that winter tires are considered an upsell. It wasn't relevant for my trip but soon when there is snow, winter tires are practically mandatory for out-of-town driving.

Pros:

Our flight was delayed and we were going to arrive after the rental office had closed so I called ahead and two representatives stayed late to make sure we got our rental. My wife and two young children waited back at the airport and it worked out very well. Thank you for the extra service! We highly recommend the Driving Force. The Keith family

Pros:

Very friendly, uncomplicated staff.

Cons:

Poor selection of vehicles. Ended up with a 4 cylinder Patriot which was screaming most of the time due to the lack of power. Therefore used around 15 liters per 100km. Rather drive a V8 and at least be able to drive relaxed...

Pros:

Clean car and smooth pick-up process.

Cons:

Following drop off, someone from Budget called to say they had found a nik in the window and tried to hold me responsible. At no point did I hear anything while driving. Moreover, they should have checked the car upon return and brought it to my attention then.

The logistics of the pick up turned out to be perfect, but we’re not well explained in the reservation materials, so I had to do a little detective work. Also the local brand name of Aligo should have been included in the reservation, as the Ace name isn’t well known in Kelowna.

The older gentlemen that work the shuttles were very kind and friendly. That is where the positive experience ends.

Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.

Top tips for hiring a car in Kelowna

  • Canada simply is a nation built with cars in mind, and Kelowna is no exception. As such, it is highly recommended that visitors rent a car in Kelowna, especially if they plan to take in the area’s beautiful scenery. Many of the most majestic spots are only accessible via tours or by car, such as Knox Mountain Park and Myra Canyon Park.
  • Can’t wait to begin your trip to Kelowna? For travelers with flights landing at Kelowna International Airport, the airport’s hire car counters can be found in the main terminal building by the arrivals area.
  • The mountains neighboring Kelowna sure are picturesque, but the weather up there can turn suddenly. Drivers should be cautious when going through any of the passes and should check the weather beforehand. In the case of rain or snow, make sure to drive extra carefully and even consider driving below the speed limit if you do not feel confident navigating the steep mountain roads.
  • Fortunately for visitors to Kelowna, there isn’t much congestion or traffic to worry about in the city. However, there is still a spot of rush hour traffic during the work week. In general, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to start around 6:30 a.m. and to finish up around 9:00 a.m. In the afternoon, the congestion picks up again at around 4:00 p.m. and calms down at around 6:00 p.m. As for congested roads in Kelowna, BC-97 is one of the central routes that backs up during rush hour, so drivers should steer clear of it if they can.
  • Book your rental car in Kelowna at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
