Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly staff, excellent location, nice comfortable vehicle.

Cons:

A little difficult to return the vehicle due to one way roads not easily maneuverable but on the 2nd go-around we figured out how to get into the lot and through the road construction. Nice staff, but they really scrutinize the vehicle so take pictures before you drive off the lot.

Pros:

The drop off was convenient.

Cons:

We went to National twice after driving a distance to get there and were not able to add a second driver either time. Misinformation, computer system down, nobody there. Very frustrating,.

3.6 Mediocre

Jul 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Damage check when returning felt like a criminal investigation. It ended up fine, but seemed like they were really trying to find insignificant damage to hold you accountable for. They also shadily dodged questions about the gas fill up requirements.

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was clean.

Cons:

This office has a weird after hours dropoff policy: you are "responsible for the car" even when you drop the keys off in their lock box. In short: you're responsible for any damage even after you "return" the car until they have someone process your return.

Pros:

everything on time and as expected however... the new electronic "agreement" seems pretty sketchy, no hard copy for the customer... could easily be changed on their side cant fit all the negatives into the better part, oops

Cons:

first off, the guy who i picked up the car from straight up lied to me saying gas from them would be 2.15/liter if i dropped it off empty, saying its below market price, great deal, no extra fees... wow sounds very nice... i looked closer at the electronic agreement, nope, almost 3.00/liter....

Pros:

nice car, friendly staff

Cons:

had to wait 1.5 hours (past closing time...) for a car, because other renter was 3.5 hours late returning the vehicle. Seemed like a lack of communication, but not sure if one person was just blaming other for the situation... I was offered a small discount for the trouble.

Over all we were pleased. It would have been helpful to be accompanied from the office to the vehicle to help find it and to have a quick explanation of the set up in the car. Otherwise 👍😊.

They told us we would have a Kia online and ended up with a very small car that was hard to get our luggage in. Any other car was going to be exceptionally more expensive so we didn’t really have a choice.

Pros:

Staff was good, location was good, parking for my vehicle was available and reasonably priced. The vehicle was in perfect condition and the late drop provision was very easy.

Cons:

I reserved a minivan very specifically, because I needed that size of vehicle. When I picked it up though, they did not have any minivans at all. They said my options were either a Suburban or a Ford Flex. I reserved a van because I needed a van. It didn’t really work that well, but we made do.

Car hire insurance in Victoria

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Victoria car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Victoria.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Victoria car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Victoria

  • Renting a car in Victoria lets you explore the city and its surroundings on your own schedule without having to pay for cabs or face the crowds in public transports. Perched on the edge of Vancouver Island, the city has lots of places you can drive to such as Beacon Hill Park. A hire car is also perfect for discovering other destinations outside Victoria, including the scenic route to nearby Saanich Peninsula, which is only 45 minutes away.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Victoria International Airport (YYJ), which is located approximately 25 km (15.5 miles) north of Victoria. Car hire services are situated in the arrivals hall of the airport's passenger terminal, straight across from the Information Desk. Handicap hand controls are available with some companies when requested in advance.
  • Victoria itself is a fairly easy city to navigate, but remember that traffic signs will be expressed in kilometers rather than miles. If you're heading to other destinations outside the city, beware that some back roads may be trickier, especially in the winter months. Vancouver Island is also popular among cyclists, so be extra careful when driving through the area.
  • Traffic around Victoria usually flows nicely throughout the whole day, especially when compared to other big cities in Canada and the U.S., but driving into or out of the city during morning or evening rush hour can be a bit chaotic. Avoid driving into the city between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and out of the city between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Victoria for €36 or less
  • Book your car hire in Victoria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
