Cons: The pick up point was a long way from the airport
25 Oct 2016
Pros: We were able to get an upgrade from a Jeep Patriot to a Hyundai Sante Fe for $50. Awesome vehicle with all the toys.
Cons: Nothing , all was good .
2 Nov 2016
Pros: They were very professional in all aspects. I will surely come back again
9 Dec 2016
Pros: My car recently quit so I was looking into rentals for the next while, as I only need to travel for work a few days a month. Theses are the reasons I chose to go with enterprise:
-No charge prior to picking up my rental, if things change, thats ok
-Able to return the car a day earlier than I booked it for
-excellent staff, the girls working offered me a ride home, as it was -26 and I was walking. I arrived only 10 minutes before closing and they insisted they didn't mind.
-signed me up for enterprise plus
-unlimited kilometres with rentals
Cons: That I've booked with other companies like Budget before when I could've been renting with Enterprise!
17 Oct 2015
Cons: They asked me if I wanted a bigger and nicer car for a few extra dollars a day and I said no because I don't like to drive big cars and I don't know anything about cars so I really don't care. I saw later on the receipt that they did give me the bigger car and charged me for it. And the car smelt like spoiled milk for the entire 2 days. Grosse.
2 Oct 2016
Pros: Everything was great. No problems of any kind. JJ
2 Jan 2017
Pros: Had a Hyundai Sonata that was great to ride, easy on gas, loads of trunk space and all the extras like heated seats, heated steering wheel, dual zone A/C.
Price was very reasonable and service was top notch.
24 Aug 2016
Car hire Calgary
Pros: A lot cheaper than hiring from the Airport
21 Oct 2015
Pros: Always get good customer service from Enterprise
6 Feb 2016
Cons: Ordered mid size Toyota. Got Mitsubishi lancer I believe.2015 but it was as a clunker. It felt like it could fall apart.
Cons: I reserved a car I thought was at/near the airport. When I went to the Budget counter I found out the Budget location you gave me was almost 20 miles away. I ended up renting a car at the airport for twice as much as I was expecting. Thanks a lot.

Easy pick up and drop off great quality cars
Pros: The pickup and drop off at the airport with simple and quick less than 5 minutes each time. Also the rental office is inside the airport so there's no shuttle that takes you to the car lot, they are right there in the terminal! We also had a brand new car that had only 200 kilometers on the odometer. Leather seats and all the options were included in our rental was super cheap, great pricing for the quality. Overall I would rent from this office again they were fantastic and the customer service was great. Only piece of advice was to either bring your own GPS then download Canada maps, or make sure your phone is usable in Canada. The GPS rental is more expensive than the car rental per day so we opted not to do it but driving around Alberta is easy

13 Jul 2016
Pros: Very nice car and agents.
Cons: The check in process. Took about 30-40 mins.
20 Jan 2016
Clean you car inside
Pros: Standard car...
Cons: Arrived at midnight - first car offered was dirty, inside and out.
Replacement car offered but process took half hour.
Budget reluctant to offer like-for-like replacement despite having many cars available (as confirmed by agent's colleague). Car also poorly cleaned and 30,000 k, but not worth the long walk back.
What's with extra charge for snow tyres at 15 dollars per day? Are we renting out unsafe cars?
Snow brush broken and useless for scraping off ice. Used credit card instead.
4 Feb 2016
Pros: Quick Check In and Check Out. We were upgraded to a larger SUV without asking, which was helpful.
When we found that the first vehicle had been through some sort of interior carpet cleaning routine and all of the floors were soaked, they quickly switched us into another vehicle with no issues.
24 Feb 2016
Sketchy rental experience
Pros: Front desk attendants were professional.
Cons: Car had multiple scratches and dents, including two small cracks in the windshield that were not noted. Had to return twice to have them documented. Large scratch not noted on form, but had a "sticker" near it on the car to show that they were aware of it. Nice, and when the sticker comes off, then what? Finally, there were no gas stations within 15 minutes of the airport, and all were closed at 6:00am. Not unlikely, but unusual. It would make a significant difference in loyalty to the brand if they were to share minor details like this when renting. Otherwise, you'll end up returning a half full tank so you can catch your flight.
29 Feb 2016
good value for the money!
Pros: I was picking the car up at Calgary Intl. Airport. I loved the location of the rental company, literally across the street from the arrivals. I also liked the fact that Budget is opened late, until 1 or 2am.
Pros: I woke up 7 in the morning to reach at Alamo to pick up my reservation only to fond the car was not there are they are unable to provide me any substitute. I AMA NEVER USING KAYAK TO BOOK MY RESERVATIONS AGAIN. FREAKING DISGUSTING.
4 Jan 2017
Cons: Alamo took my online reservation yet did not have any vehicle when I went to pick up.
25 Jan 2016
Asleep at the swithch
Cons: I arrived at the Alamo desk at Calgary airport to find it closed. There was no indication of a number to call. I called the general 800 number and had to wait a long time for a reply, only to be told to come back the next morning. I had to spend the night in an airport hotel and pick up the car hours after my arrival. I find this to be absolutely disgraceful service, especially as I arrived on a full flight from Toronto, not some special charter from the wilderness.
19 Sep 2016
Nice clean rental
Pros: My rental was nice and clean. Pick up and drop off was fairly easy.
Cons: I felt like the price was too high.
18 Jan 2017
economy cars not available with snow tires
Cons: in order to rent a car with snow tires, we had to upgrade to full size cars. that means that, in calgary, economy cars aren't available during winter. (you can't drive a car in calgary in winter without snow tires)
8 Jan 2016
Pros: The staff was courteous and helpful
Cons: The first car Malibu was not good to drive on ice and snow
so I came a few days later and switched to Kia Optima and it was a good choice.
7 Mar 2016
Pros: Great service in Calgary!
27 Apr 2016
Pros: very nice & helpful front desk!
28 Apr 2016
Pros: Fast, friendly, took all the stress out of renting a car. Great company!!!
9 May 2016
Pros: Loved the price!!!
Cons: They close at 11pm.. Our flt was delayed so we almost missed them!!!
Pros: Price was excellent people were friendly car was clean and nice
Cons: The location was farther then i thought from the airport.
It cost me 30.00 cab ride to get there.
30 Jun 2016
Pros: The car was almost brand new. Didn't have any issues with the paperwork or reservation.
Cons: I thought the cost was way too high.
15 Aug 2016
Pros: Good value.
24 Aug 2016
Pros: the car and the professionalism
Drop off was excellent
Cons: Location of the pickup was a bit out of the way.
24 Sep 2016
excellent car rental experience
Pros: We were pleasantly surprised by how quick and easy it was to pick up the car and start our trip. They upgraded us from an economy car to a midsize SUV which turned out to be a nice change! Overall I am very happy with our experience at Avis.
30 Sep 2016
The car was beat up
Pros: Tires were relatively new.
Cons: I have taken a vacation with my family and we have chosen to rent a good vehicle since we were going to drive a lot. We chose the GMC Yukon XL premium which is a full size SUV fully loaded.
The car was very very dirty in and out and it was beat up. The windshield had many cracks and the paint was scratched/damage all around the car.
It did not feel right. Specially because we were paying for a luxury ride.
Before driving away with the car, I complained that the car was dirty. Their response was " That is the only one we have available".
14 Jun 2016
Very good experience.
Pros: Quick pick up and drop off. Free upgrade because the car I reserved was not available at the time.
27 Jun 2016
Pros: The local staff really searched for the solution.
Cons: It was not clear that the rental facility is away from the airport and actually did not work at the time of arrival.
4 Jul 2016
Pickup was fast. Instruction given was clear. Good
Pros: Fast pickup, no waiting. The car had problem start while travelling, called the contact number and immediately solved the issue.
Pros: The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful! I loved talking to her.
Cons: I don't appreciate that I bought insurance online when reserving the car and it was a 3rd party. I just felt pretty stupid, when she told me I had not purchased their insurance when I was sure I had.
24 Oct 2016
Convenient and a good deal
Pros: The car was clean, and ready to go. The staff were courteous and helpful. I love Toyota and was pleased to have one - it felt like home!
Cons: Just that the pick up location WAS at the airport, but the website had said it was off site with a shuttle - it was more convenient this way - but it would have been good to update your website. The other thing was that one key was bent, and I couldn't get it out of the ignition - but I couldn't get the other key off the ring to use it to lock the car (may have been my ignorance about how to work the ring but it appeared to be locked closed). If you're giving out two keys, they need to be detachable for a case like that.
5 Nov 2016
Cons: Pushy sales and poor service. I canceled and went with a different provider
12 Nov 2016
Pros: Car had a rear-view camera and I didn't know it came equipped with it. I was pleasantly surprised.
Cons: I was satisfied with the rental. No complaints.
7 Dec 2016
Cons: Tried to upsell us on everything for 30 minutes after we'd been flying all day. They even tried to get us to buy their insurance after we had already bought insurance on Kayak, claiming that there's was much better for $35 a day. Then said they would give us a free upgrade for snow tires and then charged us $150 for them. Complete rip off. We will never use them again!
1 Jan 2017
Pros: Dollar is the worst car rental company I've ever encountered. I show up my flight was delayed show up at 11 pm Christmas Eve and nobody was at the desk. Called the number and was watching the phone ring I front of us with our number. Had to go buy another rental car from another company bc I had an hour and a half drive. I bring back the other rental car for my original reservation and when I get to the Front desk the lady tells me that my reservation has been given away. Let me remind you that I drove all the way back to Calgary on Christmas and they could not accommodate me one bit. In fact it was by far the worst experience I have ever had at a car rental company. Do not use dollar because they are very unfriendly as well as they would not allow me to speak to the manager.
14 Feb 2017
You have to decline every add on
Cons: They automatically add on every possible perk and they got pretty insistent about it. It tripled my quoted price before I demanded that they just give me the basics.
18 Feb 2017
Pros: Insurance scammers
16 Sep 2016
Cons: No cars, no staff on pick-up . . . Hertz had a car for us and honored Dollar's price . . . but was woefully understaffed both on pick-up and return.
14 Feb 2017
Pros: Very responsive, got me sorted out with a car quickly and when I dropped off the car they got me a cab. It was just great. I will be renting from them again.
Cons: Pick up and drop off weren't at airport, which is what I searched for. There were fees attached, removed, discounted, applied. The whole thing was shady and never resembled the quote I reserved the car for.
8 Jan 2017
Hertz makes it easy.
Pros: Clean car, good value, great service! I thought it might be a long wait since I was renting internationally but it was breeze. Thanks Hertz!
25 Jul 2016
Pros: No charges for crossing state lines
26 Jul 2016
Pros: Efficient service at rental and return
Offered to drop me off somewhere when I returned car and he saw I didnt have a ride waiting
Good price for the amount of time that I had the car (especially considering summer, stampede)
3 Jan 2017
Pros: The agents were polite and we got our car quickly.
Cons: I was shocked that none of the cars available had snow tires - in Calgary in December. The all-season tires on our car were quite worn-down, so driving was much more hazardous and stressful than it needed to be. We told the agents we were traveling to BC and they failed to mention that it's illegal to drive on the highway there without snow tires. They also neglected to tell us that they were going to be closed at the time of our scheduled drop-off.
13 Jun 2016
Very helpful staff
Pros: The car was brand new and suited our purposes perfectly. What impressed me the most was the Hertz staff at the Calgary airport. They were so courteous and helpful. I had a few questions about the booking and they went out of their way to help. And the man who assisted with the drop-off was extraordinarily helpful. He retrieved a luggage cart for me and assisted as I struggled to manage all of my stuff and my two-year-old child by myself. I will continue to use Hertz as my first-choice rental because they always take good care of us.
12 Jul 2016
Pros: Helpful staff at Hertz, new and comfortable car and easy return.
24 Jul 2016
Pros: The cart was great.
The drop off was easy
Cons: Long wait to pick up the car.
An additional charge to have my wife drive also.
25 Sep 2016
Pros: Pick up was easy and car was great.
Cons: we weren't aware of how much the under 25 years old fee was until we were told at the desk. We had to ask which cars were available and without asking wouldn't have gotten a nicer model for same price.
7 Feb 2017
The Hertz experience was average.
Pros: The location of the car rental at the airport was excellent. The agent was competent although somewhat aggressive promoting extras. The drop off agent was excellent and provided accurate directions to the airline counter.
Cons: Hertz wanted essentially over 50% of the original rental to have snow tires. This is Calgary not Tampa and they havw winter there so renting any vehicles without snow tires is unacceptable. In fact the car was not really in winter shape. So as mentioned above it was a average or less rental experience with Hertz.
Cons: When I called asking about transportation to and from the airport, the sales associate was happy to tell me that they would pick me up. When I asked about getting back to the airport, he said that they open at 7:00am. I'm glad I asked because I would have had to take a taxi back since we planned on returning the car at 4:30am. I successfully cancelled our reservation.
4 Sep 2016
Never even got a car!
Cons: We scheduled our pickup time for 9pm. We were within an hour of that time and learned that we needed to take a shuttle because the pickup was not at the airport. However, the rental place was completely closed and there was no way to get there or to get a car. We had to rent from someone else and paid significantly more. The next day I called Ace and they did issue a refund and charged nothing. It was a stressful way to start our honeymoon.
11 Sep 2016
Lacks Early Flight Accomodations!!
Pros: SUV was comfortable and could accommodate 3 adults with luggage. Check in crew Sat Sept 3, 2016 was awesome and went out of their way to help us find our way and gave us great directions, really wonderful service
Cons: SUV windshield was filthy and cleaned it ourselves so we could see clearly.
Although we made a call 1 week prior to state that we will need a GPS as we were coming from the US, no GPS was available when we checked in
No accomodations for early flights, no staff and not open for a 6am drop off. Our only option was to find our own way to the airport, not only did we pay for the rental we then had to pay for a cab to the airport....not happy, we will not rent from Ace again!
Pros: Did not return the tank full so they charged 4 times the normal price of gas. Affer booking online and given a total price, when I returned the car they added $60.00 in additional taxes for 3 days rental
29 Aug 2016
Pros: Reasonable rates.
6 Oct 2016
Driving Force Calgary Car Rental
Pros: -Easy to work with
-They allowed me to drop off after hours
Cons: -Driving Force is about 15-20 minutes from the airport
Pros: Terrible vehicle that wouldn't drive with even a light dusting of snow. We had to abandon the vehicle for almost our entire trip and Thrifty refused to help or give us a car with proper tires for the city and season we were visiting. Charging extra in order to trade in for a safe car that we could actually drive is unacceptable. I was also seven months pregnant.
