Had a really good experience dealing with the staff and assistant manager, he was very helpful and knowledgeable, giving me advise as to where to go, as well as the type of package I needed. The car was as you'd expect, clean, comfortable and well maintained. I highly recommend it and would definitely use them again.

I was able to change my reservation and get a minivan and I had three hours added to my reservation for no extra charge. I appreciated the flexibility with enterprise. Thank you!

Price of the car kept going up higher up as I tried to rent the car. I had to make few changes as soon as I did this car became ridiculously more expensive and these changes were for less days. I swore of all .com web sites. I will go directly to supplier in all transection.

The staff at Avis were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The car they gave me was clean, new, very comfortable, and well maintained. I would have preferred not to have a maximum daily mileage, but I know that limitation helped keep the costs of the rental down.

Pick up and drop off were both very easy. Car was clean. I am only 5’10” but my head was touching the car roof; not a rental issue but the experience of driving the car over bumps was an issue.

At pick up, she was not aware of the insurance I had with an external company which I booked through kayak and kept trying to sell me more insurance which was annoying

Drop-off was great.I'd been told that the pick-up spot was at the airport but it turned out to be quite a ways away and we had to take a cab to get there. The clerk sent us to the wrong parking spot for the car and we had to find it on our own. There was a disconcerting "thud" noise and jarring when idling.

NothingEverything - reservation system was misleading - called to verify reservation and was lied to - staff at the Richmond BC location was terribly and incredibly rude - will never use the Kayak system again to reserve and will NEVER EVER use Avis again

1.9 Horrible4 Oct 2021
I had my car booked to be picked up on a saturday at 12 pm but actually when i booked it on the website i booked it for pick up at 1 pm. And it let me go through and do the booking then i received a email that the pick up time will be 12 pm which fine sometimes you are a little late. No where in the email did it ay that they close at 12 pm. I got to the location by 12:30 and it eas closed. This was a huge inconvenience as i booked in advance to save money and had to end up renting a car from somewhere else last minute for a much more expensive price. There was no information on the website to say they closed at 12 and would be closed sunday too so not like i could even pick up the car the next day. There was a huge lack of communication, i even called them a week earlier to confirm my booking as ask about a shuttle from the airport and nothing was mentioned. And this did not just happen to me, there was other people there that were in the same situation as me. The company made it out that its my fault that i should have checked the closing time but why would the website accept a 1 pm pick up time and then show in hte email for 12 pm??? Like they should have caught this on their side even if i made a mistake and inform me so i could make other arrangements before hand. I was really dissapointed, i travelled from so far and tried my best to plan to avoid anything like this and it jus honestly ruined my day. I also called them many times when they were open the monday and tuesday and it would take me forever to get through to someone. They said they could honor my rate but i would still have to pay for the days that i didnt have the car...so i wa still going to be paying for 7 days tho i would only have the car for 4 days. Luckily another company matched it for me but still huge inconvenice. I was really disapointed. Either kayak needs to fix this on their side so that this company doesnt have bookings available for past 11 on saturday (due to possible delay in flights or uber) and no pick ups for sunday and not show it as a option. And add in the email their opening and closing times.

Stay away from this location. Employees are poorly trained 20 year olds in a back alley renting out filthy cars. The whole place smells like a wet dog. Worst experience ever.
5.9 Okay18 Sep 2021
I ordered the car online and asked for it at 11am. Got there at 10:45 and only got the car an hour later. When i tried to get a couple extra hours before returning it, they wanted to charge me $65/hour. That's almost as much as i was paying per day. When i returned the car they added some random $15 charge called "early return". I waited and spoke to them again and got a refund but even the person helping me couldn't tell me what that charge was for so if i hadn't questioned it I would've been charged extra for nothing (or for returning the car early??).

Great car, drove well, man at the counter was really nice.They didn't seem to know anything about the online booking system that I used, I ended up paying almost double because I wanted a GPS system which upgraded me to a nicer vehicle. However, I booked a Rav4 which is pretty comparable to a Chevy Esquire. I just feel like I overpaid for the upgrade.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Car was niceThe shuttle service is lacking compared to other car rentals. Customers arriving from other countries may not be able to call them for a pickup. Some kind of texting option would work better. Also, there was no early shuttle available to return to the airport. They were helpful and arranged a cab.
2.4 Mediocre22 Sep 2019
Although the young man at the desk did not seem eager to help, when pressed, he said the manager might help us find another car rental place. And he did. That was appreciatedI feel having a phone system that allows call to be answered and messages received would be helpful. When we were running late and called to tell them no one answered and the mailbox was full. We could not leave a message. As a consequence the car we reserved was given to someone else.
2.0 Mediocre29 Aug 2019
The check in process was about an hour. The car that we were assigned was driven off of the lot to get cleaned just as we were done signing over four contracts. This led to another long delay. We recommend using another car service if you want a timely departure and good customer service.

Good car, roomy and nice to drive.When we arrived we discovered that I had reserved our vacation with one day missing. The “fix” for an 8 day rental, adding only one day, more than offered DOUBLED our expense. We will never use this company ever again.

This is supposed to be an airport car rental but they close at 6:00 and you can’t pick up your car after that. Unbelievable. And don’t try to pick it up a second sadly either or they’ll try to charge you for an extra day.

The car was really nice even though it was dirtyClean car, pickup really complicated (can only call a local number no email which makes it stressful/difficult), offsite, multiple names of rental car place, charged actual deposit instead of putting pending/hold on card
9.2 Excellent5 Mar 2019
What I liked was the staff. They worked hard to remedy the situation while explaining what went wrong in the web booking. Their team effort to make it right for us was very appreciated. I know in the future that I can trust this company to do the right thing. I liked these guys and their effort madeTo compete with the big companies they could be better at streamlining pick up and drop off since they are offsite. Technology could really enhance that. Uniforms project professionalism. It is these points that could really enhance their business.

The pick up and drop off was okey . The car was nice too , although it had not been washed too well.I rented a car from ACE Rent a Car in Vancouver , BC in late September 2019. I had made arrangements to keep the car 5 days and was quoted a certain price for that time period. Then I decided to keep the car one more week . I called the agency where I had picked up the car and asked how much extra that week would be. The agent quoted a price and made me understand that this would be the total price for the rental for both the original and the additional period of time I was renting. When I went to drop off the car , she charged the full amount and said that the original amount and deposit would be returned. Well this never happened. This car rental ended up costing me an outrageous amount. I tried to talk to somebody at that company's call center to see if they would help me, but they just kept redirecting me to this same , shady agent . Unfortunately I can't recommend this car rental company.

I prepaid online and reserved my car to pick up at 8. Arrived at 8 to find no one there, had to call and ask for someone to help me out. I reserved the car at a specific time for a reason, and I wasn’t getting out of there with the car until after 9. A bit ridiculous in my eyes, Such a lack of care to their costumers. Oh wait there’s more. I bought insurance prior on kayak, but not straight from rent-a-car. Resulting in them withholding a massive fee on my credit card and saying I owe them nearly a grand to replace a windshield because of a tiny chip in the windshield due to driving on the highway. I’ve rented cars before and have never dealt with this kind of thing. No windshield replacement should be that much, and the chip is so minor it could easily be filled for very cheap. But instead rent a car is money grabbing and taking advantage of me. In the process of trying to figure out my claim with the third party insurance, which of course has not been easy. All in all I’m extremely upset by my experience and would recommend you go else where to rent a car.Don’t rent from here!

Top tips for hiring a car in Vancouver

  • The North Shore mountain range provides a picture perfect backdrop to the city of Vancouver -- visiting them during your travels is a must. Renting a car will give you the ability to access the mountain range and a long list of adventure activities. Having a car will give you the ability to go skiing or snowboarding on the world-renowned Cypress Mountain, or explore the spectacular views that hikes across Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour have to offer.
  • Picking up a rental car at Vancouver International Airport (VIA) could not be simpler; rental company counters are located next to the baggage claim at both the Main and South terminals. VIA is conveniently located only 9 miles from downtown and you will arrive after approximately 30 minutes of driving.
  • Distances and speed limits are measured in kilometers throughout Canada, so be careful and adjust your driving to suit. Vancouver has numerous flashing green traffic lights, which mean you have the right to drive through the intersection but must approach cautiously and yield to pedestrians who may be crossing. Many cyclists are present on Vancouver roads, so it’s important to keep an active eye on your blind spots. Keep in mind that across the city there are some roads with separated bike lanes and roads where lanes are shared; be mindful in both situations to provide cyclists with a safe amount of room.
  • Like most major cities, rush hour in Vancouver can be frustrating and it is wise to avoid major arterial roads or driving altogether between 5 pm and 7 pm. Traffic can be especially bad on West Georgia Street in the evening and it is advisable to seek an alternative route. Also keep in mind that the bridges of Vancouver, such as the Alex Fraser, can clog up with congestion during peak times and, due to their narrow entries and exits, take a long time to open up again.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Vancouver for ₹ 3,142 or less
  • Book your rental car in Vancouver at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Vancouver are around 17% cheaper than other car types, on average
