A LOT OF WORK
Pros: The price was great.
Cons: Finding the Enterprise counter among the multitude of car dealerships was onerous and time consuming, both coming and going. The car jerked when starting from a dead stop and was generally sluggish. Returned the car after closing, so have no bill as yet.

Usually better
Pros: Upgraded vehicle, but only cause they didn't have what I asked for.
Cons: They didn't have the vehicle I requested, the vehicle they gave me wasn't ready, the gas tank was low and they were slow. When renting for business things need to be efficient and quick!

No compact car
Pros: Friendliness of the staff, willing to look at other locations for options. Like renting with enterprise and have not had problems before which is why I continue to rent from them, along with decent prices.
Cons: No compact available, offered a truck or huge SUV. I declined. I rent compacts as small and easy to drive and fuel efficient Had to go to other location. Finally got a mid size golf VW. Was 1.5 hours late. The vehicle drove well and we liked it. Why didn't they have a car available? Explanation: others hadn't returned vehicles. Second explanation, time of year when they change over cars and replacements not yet arrived. Not good enough. I had made a reservation months ago.

They shafted me! I never received a car. Cust service was the worst!
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: TL;DR DO NOT CHOOSE THIS RENTAL LOCATION. IT'S A SCAM This specific Thrifty location should be black listed. I called them by phone to let them know I was going to be 20 minutes late. They told me my car wasn't there, but it WOULD be at 3pm (3h late). Fine with me. I called back at 2:30 to verify my car was there. This is where the Thrifty representative was horrible! I was informed that there were no cars for me. I asked how can this be, I have a confirmed reservation. She said all the cars were rented in the morning. I inquired about brining in a car from another location but she insisted there were no cars available. We went back and forth. I was firm, but not once did I raise my voice, swear, or sound aggressive. I was just trying to find a way to get a car because I needed it to go visit my family for the Easter long weekend! Eventually she hung up on me!!!! I called back and she picked up the phone and hung up. I called several times and she either didn't answer, immediately put me on hold, and or just picked up and hung up. The end result was that I was left stranded in Vancouver, away from family for the entire Easter weekend. All other rental cars were booked and or too expensive for me.

Pros: Staff were fairly friendly
Cons: The car was not ready for me. I had let them know that I would be collecting it the following day and when I arrived they were still washing the vehicle. They gave me a bigger car and as I was in a hurry I had to return later to exchange for the smaller size which I wanted. Took a long time to do the paperwork when I picked up the car and 20 minutes to do paperwork when I returned it. They then asked if I had smoked in the car as there was a smell of smoke. It had had this smell when I collected the car.

Cons: My car was scheduled for 6pm. I didn't realize that they close at 6 as well, by the time I got there for a pickup, they were closed. I delayed my trip until next morning. When I got to Hertz for pickup in the morning, they didn't put any effort into getting me a car instead told me very rudely that they are sold out.

Top tips for renting a car in Surrey

  • Excited to explore Surrey and the greater Vancouver area? Well, there is no better way than in a rental car. For instance, say you want to catch a Vancouver Canuck’s match, you could drive there in 20 to 30 minutes or you could spend 40 minutes to over an hour on public transportation.
  • Many visitors like to pick up their rental cars as soon as they land at the airport. Travelers with flights landing at Vancouver International Airport will find the rental car desks just outside the airport’s terminal, on the ground floor of the main parking lot.
  • Surrey is located in one of the world’s northernmost rainforest biomes and, as a result, the city experiences its fair share of rainstorms. Hydroplaning can be a worry during sudden showers that occur most frequently between October and March. If you find your car to be hydroplaning, simply ease off the gas and avoid any large steering motions.
  • Surrey, as a part of the greater Vancouver area, does experience some moderate rush hour traffic and congestion. On a normal workday, drivers can expect rush hour to pick up at around 7:00 a.m. in the morning and to last until 9:00 or 9:30 a.m. In the afternoon, the rush hour starts back up again at around 4:00 p.m. and cools down by around 7:00 p.m. Highway 91 is the main road to avoid during rush hour, particularly during peak hours.
  • Book your rental car in Surrey at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Surrey are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average
