After I picked up the vehicle, I had to change my plans. I returned to the rental location an hour / 8kms later and explained why. The associate welcomed me with a smile, spoke with her manager and told me he had waived all charges! Needless to say I was extremely pleased and will be re renting from same location today. Great client service!Nada

Nothing. I was unable to retrieve the car.I made a reservation Dollar pickup at 330 Front Street in Toronto. When I arrived at that location I was told my reservation was to be picked up at 1245 Danforth Ave. I showed them my reservation confirmation that indicated my reservation was for 330 Front st, but the CS rep at Front st told me there was nothing they could do and there was no car available for me. Danforth location was a half hour away and closed. I spoke with Dollar 800 number and it appeared to me their system is incorrect. The CS rep was trying to explain to me there are 2 “330 front street locations; one in Danforth and one 330 front st West (where I was). I had to explain there are not 2 “330 Front Streets” and the store rep had already told me the address for Dantforth was 1245 Danforth Ave. The phone rep realized this was the issue that somehow these 2 locations are linked as 1 in their system is the best I could tell what was happening. The only thing he could do at this point was offer me a pickup at the airport which was an impossibility for me. To summarize; I made a reservation for 330 Front st, showed up on time to pick it up, had 2 points of confirmation indicating my pick-up was at 330 front st and was told by dollar my reservation was for 1245 Danforth Ave in their system. I have no emails indicating anything about Danforth Ave as a pick-up location. Unable to secure a car from Dollar, I was very fortunate to find and book a last minute rental from another company. Overall an extremely frustrating experience as Dollar could not honor the reservation I made and could not provide me with an explanation as to what occurred to cause the error.

Location is convenientThey did not seem to be well organized, they had only one attendant and I had to wait a while because they had to go and fill up the gas tank of the person who was being helped before me because it only had a quarter tank of gas left. The car also had scratches and did not seem to be in the best working order. They also make you fill up you tank within a 5 km radius before returning the car.
2.0 Mediocre18 Feb 2020
When I arrived to pickup my rental, the car had been given away to somebody else and they had no vehicles left for me. I had booked a week in advance specifically because it was a holiday weekend so there is no excuse for this. I missed a family gathering because of this problem.They could have kept a car available for me as per my rental agreement.

The staff were incredible and extremely helpful. Anthony and Rudy were the front desk employees that helped get me checked out and ensured that I had the vehicle that was best for me and allowed me to modify my trip last minute. The car was exceptionally clean, inside and out, and the employee in the parking area was very diligent in ensuring the car was in top condition. The car was great, the location is convenient, and the staff are fantastic. I'll be renting from this location every time I need a car in Toronto!The only issue with this location is that sometimes the parking ticket machine in the underground parking lot gives you trouble as you're exiting, but if there's staff around they are eager to help you.

We made a reservation to pick our car up for 5pm on a Sunday, showed up at 5:03 (from the airport) and there was no one there to give us our car. I understand that we were late a couple minutes, but if you know you have a car going out would you not wait to give the car? Even wait 10 minutes?? Ended up having to go back to the airport to get a vehicle. Do not accept a time to pick up a car is no one is going to be there to give the car out.
2.0 Mediocre6 Jul 2021
All of the staff were helpful and courteous.I called to ask whether I could pick up a bit early (40 minutes, as it turns out) and said that I would drop off earlier. However, when the person at the counter handed me my contract, the price included a $12 parking surcharge and an additional $25 to $35 for the early pickup (can't remember). I got them to fix the early pick up fee, but the "parking surcharge" stayed. That is appalling. Parking is a cost of business for them, so if they are going to add a surcharge for it, then why not a customer service surcharge, cleaning surcharge, etc. It felt like dishonest nickle and diming and reminded me why I haven't used Budget for about 10 years. They did the same thing to me in Vancouver in the early 2010s.

Kayak and Hotwire gave me a deal for a vehicle that doesn’t available. I made reservation on the web side for a full size sedan but ended up renting a full size Suv since there it’s the only option left they have. The price was much higher than expected also, $ 300 increased compare to the reservation. In short, these third parties website does poorly in updating the availability of vehicles.

nothing. My children and I traveled for hours trying to find a solution. After being exhausted from flying across the Atlantic.Honoring my contract price for starters. Everyone had a different time for the store to close. If I wanted it the next day you wanted to double the price. Fortunately there was a real person at the Alamo at the airport, and she matched the rate for the same period of time. And even upgraded the car.

On May 2nd, I filled up the car at 8: 52 am at 537 Keele St west as the car needed to be filled up and I am required to show a receipt that I filled up the car as per the contract agreement. Please see attachment 3 for the receipt and proof of the time of filling up the car. At 9:00 am I returned the car. The same sign was on the door that said that the attendant was away for 15 minutes but unfortunately, I could not wait as I had an urgent appointment and I really need to leave on time. Since there was no one there, I had no choice but to leave the car. There are cameras all over the premise of this AVIS location that can verify I was there on time. I attempted to call the office to let them know I left the car, because I had an urgent very urgent appointment to get to.  I finally received a call from AVIS at 9: 13 am, the same salesperson from this AVIS location called me and said that I left the car overnight and that it was damaged. This tells me that he was not there until that specific time or else he would have seen that I just returned the car and I have the receipt of when I filled up the car to prove it. I headed back to the location AVIS 3193 Dundas St W) at 9:19 am to try to figure out what had happened. The attendee insisted I was not there at 9 am. He then proceeded to demand I pay for the scratch on the car. The attendee continued to intimidate me and said that he would call the police, he also said that if I did not sign the documents that he would write down I refused to pay which would cause me even more money. I insisted that he provide me this paper work (which I have) and allow me time to review the paper work before signing anything. It was very hard for me to even ask for time to review the paper work, as he was extremely upset and I was in tears but I knew I had to review anything before signing it, given that he clearly already lied to me as I was clearly there at 9 am having just filled up the car. I have also attached a video of the car showing the front scratch and its significant damage that he said was ok before I even rented the car and also showing the back scratch that he says I caused although it was not there at 9 am when I returned the car.

Closed before I picked up the carI reserved a pick up time between 11-12pm through kayak. Payless was not located at the airport, yet the address shows up as the airport. They will drop off cars at the airport, but you have to call them first to let them know you arrive. This created 2 challenges for me: 1 - no reception as I don't have a Canadian phone service provider & 2 - Payless was closed at 10 so when I was finally able to call, no one picked up anyways. Unfortunately, even though I clearly stated my needs on the reservation, Payless could not provide what I needed, I was in a foreign country & needed to get to my hotel asap as it was getting late, sooo I rented a car from a competitor (on Memorial Day weekend) and paid about 4 times more. Thanks Payless.See above. Everything.

Bullied and ScammedNothing at allYour Discount Car Rental location didn't have any cars, saying they had rented out 30 the day before and none came back. So I sat there with others for an hour being told "15 minutes till we take you to another location with cars" Turns out the other location is a really poor rental company named Advance Car and Truck Rental (Google 2 star rating with reviews of customers being bullied) that just happens to have the cars we need.. I'm pretty sure they have an agreement going on between the two because its too convenient and this other place wouldn't survive without Discount dumping customers on them. To sum it up, they told me to drop the car off whenever I wanted at Discount and they'd get it in the morning. My contract with them says I have it until 7:25am. They called me 4 times during dinner to threaten me to bring it back to their location by 11pm, or they will keep calling and start charging my credit. So not only did I miss Thanksgiving thanks to all of this, but now I'll have to dispute their "Upcharges" with my credit company. And quite frankly, because of how this was all handled, I'm never going to book with your company again, and I'll never recommend anyone I know book with you either. Sorry to say, but these guys were so rude and threatening on the phone and in person(shoving me out of the way when I dropped off the car) that I'm completely turned off of going through your company.

Cancelled Car rental without notificationNothing. Worst.Landed in Toronto all the way from Edmonton. Went to discount car rental dealership by taxi( they supposed to provide suttle but they don’t) . Found that they canceled reservations without any reason. No notifications nothing( they rent car to different person on higher price). Rent a car for one week. Treat me very bad. No help nothing. Talk rudely (even it’s there fault). Spent 3 hours but no luck and no reason, no response. Need to rent a car from other company as everything was planned for my vacation. Ended with paying $500 instead of $130 for one week car rental plus waste my day for vacation plus all this hassle.

Top tips for hiring a car in Toronto

  • Looking to rent a car during your time in Toronto? If you are landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport, you will find the hire car desks on Level 1 of both the Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 parking garages. For travelers flying into Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, the Avis hire car desk is adjacent to the baggage claim area and the Enterprise counter is by the Eireann Quay parking lot.
  • Drivers should keep their eyes open for both streetcars and buses in the downtown area, as both are commonplace. For buses, drivers must be aware that legally you have to yield to buses merging into traffic. As for streetcars, it is illegal to pass a stopped streetcar because you must yield to the passengers disembarking.
  • Toronto, like many other large cities, suffers from daily bouts of rush hour. Typically, drivers can expect rush hour to last from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. The evening rush hour can be particularly congested for drivers leaving the downtown area, so it is highly advised to time your trip accordingly. Some of the main areas to avoid during rush hour include Highway 401 and Don Valley Parkway.
  • Drivers new to Toronto should be aware that left turns are not allowed at many of the intersections in the downtown area during rush hour. To avoid any complications due to this, even confident drivers should make certain to use a GPS to help them navigate rush hour traffic.

The average petrol price is around Can$3.78 ($2.87) per gallon, which is quite cheap in comparison to Sydney’s average price of $3.50 and Edinburgh’s $6. Drivers from other countries should note, though, that petrol is bought per liter in Toronto, not per gallon.

  • Streetside parking can be very difficult to find in the central downtown areas of Toronto, especially when an event, such as a Toronto Raptors game, is going on. Aside from streetside parallel parking, parking garages are the main option available. In general, the garages are your best bet for parking, particularly if you are planning on heading downtown.
