MAJOR hidden costs
Avoid avoid avoid.
Major hidden costs and one way drop off fees.
What a shame and way to make our Canada trip remembered.
Superior price & service
No extra comments needed
Excellent communication throughout. Swift and efficient at arrival/pick-up and at the end of the trip. Outstanding service.
This was the first time que rented a car. The experience was wonderful from the beggining, with full attention from the Thrifty cashier Renne. The explanation was very clear. As our Arrival flight delayed (twice), another car (upgrade) was arranged after 15 minutes waiting. During the Rental time, the only issue was a failure of gas door when filling, but a friend helped and se could open the gas door. We made a call report to the Rental Company. We also thank much to Authentik Canada for the fantastic service! [...]
Great experience and very kind attention.
We were upgraded to a Suburban from a mini van!
Top class service
We were offered an upgrade to a Mazda 6 which was a nice gesture - everything went very well - pick up and drop off were easy and the car was excellent
A Pleasant Journey
We book the vehicle with almost half of the market price under the help of Authentik. Moreover, Avis upgrade our car to Suburban. We had a great trip for the past two weeks.
Thanks Authentik and Chloé. For sure we highly recommend!
New car - no problems but do your home work re. insurances
Generally very satisfied with Autentik who made all the reservations. but felt pushed at the Thrifty pick-up couter to accept and pay expensive for extra insurances that genuinely probably are not needed - as far as we subsequently have been informed about.
New car - fine.
Prompt and clear information provided upon request.
We received a perfect assistance during our trip! The car was comfortable and the rent procedure were easy and fast!
No hassle car rental
Allyson at Authentik did a great job organising my car rental with Thrifty and kept me informed at all stages. The Authentik web site contains very useful travel information which was extremely useful. Thrifty were very efficient and offered an upgrade to a larger car with sat nav, for less than usual fee for Sat nav, which I accepted. No hassle return all sorted in 5 mins. I wouldn't hesitate to use Authentik or Thrifty again. [...]
Best car hire experience to date!
Very high quality price and vehicle. Customer service up to picking up to notch. Would highly recommend and will be using them for all my needs in Canada on my return!
Good Services but Hidden Charges
Overall I was provided with very new car and was in really good condition. Thanks to Thrifty for that. However before booking always check on all these costly other hidden charges, like car return charges (if point of return is diff city) or airport premium service charges or additional insurance charges etc.
Unexpected additional Charges and dirty Car
We had to pay a drop off charge which was not obvious in the offer, only later in the confirmation.
The car we received was quite dirty from the inside, especially the back seats were covered with dogs hairs
7 days rental for road trips in eastern Canada
When I looked for a car rental service they were all very confusing and the final price was not clear. Authentik Canada made it all very simple, I knew exactly what I had to pay, what documents I needed to bring to the car agency.
I got upgraded to a VW Golf at no extra cost. Drove 2800km in 7 days, for 165€ + 32€ (<25 fee), definitely worth it.
My only complain is that this service is only available for Canada. [...]
I opted to upgrade the vehicle and it was smooth. We had fun driving to the Rockies, what a view!
Great quick service, Car was fine.
Successful Car Rentals.
Very well organised and efficient car rentals in three locations organised from Australia.
Marie-Chloé emailed a suggestion that we should adjust our pickup times due to our flights. Great service not just blindly processing our requests. Authentik Canada also organised a refund for our last car hire section when we had to return to Australia due to a medical emergency at home.
Thrifty were efficient and helpful at pickup and drop off.

wonderful experience with rental company
I am happy that Authentik Canada provided me a good deal on the car rental and I am also very happy with the services provided by the rental company. Overall, a very satisfying and memorable experience with car. Will surely like to do business with Authentik again.
The rental company was efficient and staff were courteous
Everything was easy and well managed.
The car was bigger than the one we requested, but it is not the first time for me, renting by Avis. Anyway. in Canada the roads are wide and we found car parking easily everywhere. The service has been good since the first mail, and for the moment we have no regrets. Hope it wouldn't be a surprise later!
Better car than expected. Economic, good space and comfortable. Attendance was Quick and very good as well.
Happy car tental
Had a great car, reasonable price and all was very efficient through authentik who were very approachable and allayed all fears. Would recommend Thrifty Vancouver and I would use anytime
My rental was with Thrifty at Vancouver airport where I was given a Volkswagen Jetta. My experience overall from authentik’s agent Marie-Chloe, and thrifty was great. Good communication and unbeatable rates. Thank you!
First time i' ve ever rented a car. Nice experience.Thanks
Super long time to wait for collecting the rental car from Avis.
Super long time to wait for collecting the rental car from Avis. We queued for 3 hours for collecting the car. In my experience, it is the longest time I wait for collecting rental car so far. Other car rental company just wait for 30 minsutes or less at the same location. We also expecting a US brand JEEP, turnout was a korean Hyundai Santa Fe. They simply said they belong to the same class. [...]
Good car and outstanding an friendly service!!!
A half an hour after leaving from Triton, we had flat tire, in a region without any mobile phone service... Luckily we could stop near another pourvoirie where the first person we asked, by pure coincidence, happend to be the central car reservation responsible of Sauvageau itself who was on an weekend fishing trip! He paused his activity immediately, helped to inflate the “slow”, did some phone calls and organised a vehicule exchange in the Alma Sauvageau office for the next day, so we could go on with our trip without any worry! Unfortunatily we forgot to ask his name, but if possible, you may send him once more our thanks!!
Our second car became very dirty, illustrating the active trip we made;-) [...]
Had a great experience. Good car, no hassles, & the drive was very smooth.
