YesIt wasn't really obvious from my paperwork that we had to call for the shuttle to come pick us up at the airport. The number could be more "front and centre" on the reservation paper. Luckily, someone else on our flight was renting with them and had already called the number.

I had a BMW reserved for our family vacation and when we got there they had given the car away to someone else and we had to settle for a Toyota RAV4 which we found very uncomfortable. Their excuse was that they tried to call to see if we were coming and I didn't answer, I WAS ON A FLIGHT and couldn't answer.
8.0 Excellent16 Nov 2021
They did not deliver the vehicle I booked. I carefully reviewed all the different vehicle types presented to me as "available" at the time of booking, several days before my trip. Because bad weather was forecast, I selected a compact SUV. When I arrived, I was told my selected vehicle was in fact no longer available, and instead, a low-clearance compact Toyota Corolla would be substituted. The explanation was "it's been a crazy day" and that other customers had shown up and rented almost every vehicle they had. What does a vehicle "reservation" mean to Alamo if they're going to rent my booked vehicle out from under me to someone that turns up at the counter?
6.0 Good14 Nov 2021
I had to extend the rental 2 times Rather than just being able to phone in and update the account I had to drive to the airport each time and basically create a new rental each time Secondly they could t extend the damage deposit so basically had two holds on my card at the same time as the initial damage deposit was held for up to 5 business days

It was a nice clean car but it didn't have a block heater or winter tires in Edmonton, Alberta, in December. The office was closed when we went to return the car but they didn't warm us they would have limited hours the date of our return. Luckily, the self serve return went relatively smoothly.

Attendant at pick up was not very welcoming. Was surprised that we had to pay an extra fee for my spouse to drive the car. Since we share family insurance, this does not seem to make sense. For this reason we will not rent from this agency again.

The rental agency was easy to find and convenient to the airport. The vehicle was nice and clean and well-maintained. The staff outside in the lot were punctual and helpful.There was quite a wait to begin our process.The return of the rental car was very time consuming more so than at any other city we have ever rented a vehicle in.

Not much at all I liked about this experienceIt was a car rental in Edmonton Alberta. they gave us a BC plate car. it was also during a snow storm in November, no winter tires, windshield washers didn't work, gadgets on the screen kept flashing up. worst car rental experience I have ever had.

I rented a pick-up truck in middle of february and it came with summer tire, really unsafe and i did lost control a few times. Even if the province of Alberta doesnt enfore their driver to use winter tire i do believe that a rental company should ensure the safety of their custommer.
4.0 Okay20 Dec 2021
Everything was amazing until it came time to drop off. Don't get me wrong drop off was fairly easy except when I got to the location it was closed. I had to put the keys in the drop box, which is fine but on confirmation email or other if the location is going to be closed, in the confirmation email that should be mentioned as should the key drop. For me if that is not stated in the email then I am expecting to meet a person at a customer service counter. Other than that it was a great experience
5.6 Okay4 Nov 2020
Opening hour, easy to get and drop from airport.The winter tires didn't included by default in the rent! In Canada during the winter, it's impossible. I needed to add 20$/day extra cost. So I double the amount of my rent. The car was no smoking car. But I never drive a car with an heavy smoke smelt inside like this! The next time I come back to change the car before left the parking! So keep no smoke in no smoking cars!
10.0 Excellent23 Sep 2020
No surprise fees, the car was nearby, and it worked great.Sometimes I wish car rental companies had small photos of all the cars in their fleet so that I wouldn't have to start googling what a certain model looked like to remind myself if given the option between different vehicles.

The staff was helpful and conveniently located at the airport location.The agent wanted to up sell to a larger model as they wanted the smaller SUVs for other customers. I was OK with that if it was a free upgrade, but they wanted to charge me for it.

Awfull service. I booked my car for pick up at 1 am, my plane landed at 1 15 and I was at the desk at 1 25 to find it closed. I walked around the parking lot and called the 1800 number to find out the close the desk at 1 am, and they blamed me for not putting my flight information on my reservation.Dont book with hertz Edmonton if you are going to arrive after middnight, or you migh find yourself sleeping at the airport waiting for them to open at 6 am and even then they wont even say "Sorry" all I got was you were here after 1am.... I am sure I would never use them again. Companies got to big

Service is decent.Windshield deductible of $100 after paying $7.99 makes no sense for one rock chip. We know they will just repair the windshield until it actually cracks. It's the first car rental that's ever hit me with an additional insurance and $100 charge thereafter for a rock chip. Overall a bad experience.

I usually rent with enterprise but they didn't have the type of vehicle I needed so I went with Avis. In the past Avis over charged me (see Vegas review) but this time there were absolutely no billing issues and their checkout process was the fastest I'd ever had at YEG. It wasn't the cheapest rental but Edmonton has unusually high rental prices in general.

Avis wouldn't honor the confirmed rental rateBooked a Tahoe online and when we went to pick up the car and was signing all the documents, noticed the price was more than 4 times the price. I showed them my confirmation but the time my just told me there must have been an issue with the booking site. There was no mention of this before I was about to sign and they would not honor the confirmed price I had so I left and went to Alamo who gave me a great deal. Thank you Alamo.

A lovely tripScheduled my pickup from the airport for 11, but they did not have a car ready ( I was 10 minutes early as my flight was ahead of schedule) I was upgraded to a B class car and loved it! May have changed my mind on wanting to purchase a jeep because I loved the Chevy Malibu so much. My first time renting a car, and was very pleased.I wasn't offered any kind of km deal, which is fine, but it would have been nice if there was a package since it is roughly 400 kms from Edmonton to Jasper

Fast & convenient & no BS .Speak up and drop off Was very fast and nobody tried to sell me any think.I consider $760 for a smal suv without insurance a bit pricey but didn't had a choice at the moment.
