The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is a bit out of the way but I would go there again because of the very competitive price and good service.

Antony was a great help. I booked a Nissan Versa and was upgraded to a Kia Forte free of charge. The car was clean, the pickup and drop off were effortless. Thanks! I will definitely book with them again.

I would not reccomend this pickup location, the facilities were lacking, the staff, who only really spoke french, bearly just did his job and did not provide any assistance to answer questions, and the drop off which was not possible out of office hours was parking the vehicle and giving the key to a staff member with no confirmation of the correct receival of the vehicle and its status.

Staff was very courteus even though they had some stress issue happening. But the lady chatted and managed two employees customers while helping me. BRAVO! They did not have midsize car that I had reserved so they put me in small SUV.Small SUV was a less fuel efficient. So ended up filling more gas before returning. Return was quick even though it was a Sunday night 9 pm.

Make sure you don't pick the 4pm pickup time as the store closes at 4pm. Hertz and Kayak: lease stop giving 4pm pickup time when the store is closing at the same time. (I unfortunately arrived 4 minutes late and the store was closed... I had to cancel one night of my trip and went back the day after at Hertz at the opening of the store at 8am).

We pre-pay a rental reservation and pick up time was 4 pm. Didn’t receive any advisory that the pick up location is at 4pm. Flight was delayed and since it’s a direct flight, unable to call to advice. Spoke to a rep at hertz which charges 5 % of the amount to inquire and was told that since it’s pre-pay the location should hold the car for 24 hours of pick up time. When I called the location at 8:30 am (they open at 8) they said there’s no more cars available. They said we will get a full refund bet 4-10 business days. Will still have to wait and see how will that go. Very poor and unreliable! They coud’ve at least given us a call when they opened to confirm since it’s already pre-paid! Didn’t hesitate of ripping us off with the payment we already made and just gave our reserved car to someone else! NOT RESERVING AT HERTZ AGAIN!!! They better give us our full refund!

DO NOT HIRE FROM HERZ at 5885 BOUL DÉCARIE, MONTRÉAL, CANADA. I rented the car for 10 days. The car signalled that it needed servicing as soon as I got on the highway. I spent many days trying to contact the company to sort this out and extend my rental. I had to arrange servicing myself. Meanwhile I also got mixed messages from the 1-800 people vs. the Décarie office about about what to do. The local office didn't return multiple calls. Finally they had the gall to charge me for another day when I followed the advice of the person at the 1-800 number to come 1st thing in the morning after the car was due so that I could see a live human being to ensure that I would be reimbursed for the money I had to pay to service THEIR car.

It was hard to find my way once I exited the parking garage and it was very difficult to find my way back to the right address of the parking garage.

Way to expensiveI made the reservation online. It said 145$ the only thing I was missing was the 60$ for the insurance. When I did the reservation I clicked on age 21 to 24. When I got to pick up th3 car he added an additional 60$ for being under 25. And something else. To total 311$ that is rediculous. When I got into the car, the gas light was on. When I dropped off the car the place said opened but the door was locked and no one was there. Horrible service and the most expensive I have ever paid for a rental.

The day before our trip a rep from Budget called to say they would not have a car for us and lease don't show up at their location ( not at airport). He said to call customer service and change my reservation to the airport as they would have cars. I called the toll free number and explained to the helpful rep what the conversation had been with the Budget location. She happily changed my reservation from that location to the airport - then informed me that my $147 reservation was now $538. She said that after the rental I could call customer service and request a refund. I hung up and thought through that conversation. I called customer service back, got a new person and explained the whole scenario again. He said "I only see your current reservation at the airport." I went through it again. He said "the reservation is at the airport for $538. There is no other history." Felt extremely scammy and dishonest. He could have cares less about the situation. I then cancelled my reservation and have vowed to never rent from Budget again.

Top tips for hiring a car in Montreal

  • Fortunately for travelers looking to rent a car after landing in Montreal, the hire car desks are located right within the airport’s baggage claim terminal, meaning you don’t have to take a shuttle or bus to reach an off-site hire car center. After collecting your luggage, the signs will lead you to the hire car desks and from there it is a short walk downstairs to the hire garage.
  • Drivers should beware that right turns on red are not allowed on the actual island of Montreal. Outside the island and in neighboring areas, right turns on red are allowed, but on the island it is strictly forbidden.
  • Rush hour can be rough in Montreal as it has rated among the most congested cities in Canada. However, if you avoid the bulk of the morning rush hour (6:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.) and the afternoon rush hour (3:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.), then you should be fairly safe from congested streets and traffic jams. In particular, the major highways, such as Highways 20 and 40, are to be avoided during peak rush hour.
  • Drivers should take note that intersections will often lack crossing signs for pedestrians. As such, cars are to yield to pedestrians crossing as they have the right of way. Drivers should also keep their eyes open for bikes, as biking is very popular in Montreal during the warmer months.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Montreal for $63 or less
  • Book your rental car in Montreal at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Montreal are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average
