A Very Good Experience

Abdulkarim Muslim Monday August 8, 2022

I came across this company inadvertently but can say that I am very glad that I did. It helped that I booked well in advance as the prices were very competitive. At the time of booking, I found only one other provider offering similar prices. All other car hire websites/companies were at least 200-300 [...]

Well handled car rental.

Very easy booking through Authentik and pick up at Avis. It saved us a considerable amount of money.

Calgary to Vancouver trip

Anonymous Thursday June 30, 2022

When we picked the car up, the sale agent tried to sell us a number of unnecessary extra's, which we declined. When we saw the car it was in poor condition. It was dirty and smelt of smoke. It a chip on the windshield and many scratches. They claimed they didn't have another car to give us. We were only [...]

Thrifty Dodge Caravan Rental through Authentik

Anonymous Saturday June 18, 2022

Our booking process was easy with email questions answered fairly promptly.
The car itself was in good condition and had travelled only a bit over 30,000 km.
One thing we struggled with was finding somewhere we could check the air pressure in the tires. We are from Australia where [...]

Good car but could a clean inside!

Anonymous Sunday June 5, 2022

A lovely car to drive. No issues picking it up or filling with petrol. Only issue we faced was it smelt of smoke inside and was dirty - crumbs and hairs over the car. Needed a good clean and hoover!

Prise en charge facile au comptoir et voiture très satisfaisante

Benoit-gabriel Corriveau Sunday August 22, 2021

Après une attente importante au comptoir Avis (env. 1h) et plusieurs cas de réservations qui semblaient long et complexe, nous avons été servis en moins de 5 minutes par l’agent. Le tout a été très efficace, ce que nous redoutions, et l’automobile (Nissan Versa 2021) était en parfaite condition et forte agréable à conduire.

Satisfaction survey reply

Anonymous Saturday August 21, 2021

My rental experience: I generally like the rental service with Authentic, but this time it was excessively expensive (almost the cost of a second hand car), and the rental company, AVIS, added an additional hidden charge of $150.00 at the outset for "costs of changing winter to summer tyres"! Why [...]

Good car for 7 people. AWD model would have been better

Kelvin Matthes Tuesday January 14, 2020

Thank you for the car rental. I received a Kia Secona in the end and was a great car but an AWD mkdel would have been better as I was driving in snow and ice conditions.
Car was as new and very clean.

Overall good experience

Joseph Andrewartha Monday October 21, 2019

Picking up the car was straightforward and the staff were helpful in changing the make/type to one more suiteparking gad to our needs than the one allocated. The car was clean and well prepared. There were no problems during the hire period.

Returning the car in Toronto was more [...]

rental troubles

Sandi Armitage Wednesday October 9, 2019

Car rental office had moved - company provided pick up service but did not do the same when we returned the car.
Car also ran out of oil in a remote location - seems it had not been well serviced before we picked it up

Great service

Everything perfect

Benjamin Biaesch Wednesday October 2, 2019

All was perfect. No waiting time to pick up the car, everything prepared as ordered, even received an upgrade to a higher category (SUV) which became very handy in the Rockies. And all at a very reasonable price. Also appreciated the online travel guide which was provided through Authentik Canada, very helpful.

Exactly as ordered

Malcolm Keeble Tuesday October 1, 2019

Car was just what we’d ordered, staff were efficient and not overly pushy about ‘Premium Breakdown Cover’ or paying extra to reduce the insurance excess (bought cover for this in the UK for around £50!). Car did have a deep scratch in the paint which we found during our inspection before we [...]

Not clean, but ran fine. Extra sale at pick up did not impress me

Anonymous Tuesday October 1, 2019

Had a Buick Encore, wasn't very clean but ran fine. Didn't appreciate the guy convincing us we needed a GPS package whilst picking up the car. He had us scared that we would be lost without it, which I'm condident now is far from the truth. Drop off in Vancouver was very simple.

Good car rental

Tuesday October 1, 2019

Fast and even with a complimentary upgrade so very happy, please advice to bring along your passport also for car rental pick up as it was compulsory.

Total Recommendable

Dominic Haas Tuesday September 24, 2019

Good car rental with confidence. Everything went super easy. Make sure your credit card actually shows the name of the driver. If not, it could be more expensive.

Very good experience

Petar Bozadzhiev Monday September 23, 2019

Very easy pick up of the vehicle in Calgary and very easy drop-off in Vancouver. Polite agents and a good cost. We also got a last minute car upgrade for the same price since the model we booked wasn't available. Car was Hyundai Elantra - new model, clean and nice with low fuel consumption.

Easy process

Anonymous Monday September 23, 2019

Had requested a Chevrolet Spark or similar small vehicle, but was provided with an intermediate size Toyota Corolla due to no availability at no extra cost. Was very happy with the service and easy pick up and drop off process. Very reasonable price for our 13 day car hire and would definitely use again.

Ford Taurus 3000km

Jamie Mcdonald Friday September 20, 2019

Pick up & drop off of the vehicle was made easy at Thrifty Downtown Vancouver. The staff were pleasant, efficient & we were lucky enough to have the car brought right out front for us so we didn't have to navigate the parking garage..
We travelled over British Columbia and Alberta & the Ford Taurus was a great car. Fuel efficient & comfort was top notch.
