Zhen and his team made this car rental painless. We’ll definitely work with them again for our next Vancouver trip!

Honest review from out of town travelers. We were coming from Los Angeles and were looking for an alternative for the expensive usual car rental company’s and we found Zhen’s. Check in was a breeze. Our flight got delayed so we asked if it was fine to pick up the car later. They were nice enough to pick us up from the airport and drop us off after our trip in Vancouver was over. Didn’t speak the best English but good enough to communicate. Easy in and out. Price factor was definitely the best part of renting from them. Unbeatable prices and good service. If you are traveling from out of town I would definitely suggest renting from Zhen.

Tim and Sampson were awesome. This was my first Turo experience and to be honest I had a lot of worries at first. I thought it was just an owner renting out his car, but Tim actually has his own fleet of cars for rent. Turns out, Tim and his team were professionals, and I couldn’t have asked for a better first turo experience. Experience: I booked this extremely late- like a day before. Rental cars like Avis and budget were quoting me 500-600 CAD for a crap Kia Forte for 6 days so I opted for Tim’s BMW instead which was actually CHEAPER. Tim replied within an hour, and he told me to read the trip guidelines. There was an option to pickup the car from the airport lot(you incur a fee if you arrive late) or be picked up by them and brought to their service center. I opted for the latter because customs wait time can be really long and I didn’t want to pay extra for the car to sit in lot. When I got out of customs I texted him and Sampson drove the BMW to come pick me up within 10-15min. They brought me to the service center and I filled out all of the paper work. It did add a little bit of extra time maybe 20-30min. Depending on how much of a rush you are in it might be better to just pickup the car from the lot. It’s more convenient and you can start your trip right off the bat. ——————— After my trip was done I returned the car back at the service center. Sampson checked the car and then drove me to the airport. I actually forgot to fill up and he drove me to a gas station before dropping me off at the airport. The process was incredibly easy and stress free. I couldn’t have asked for a better first Turo experience. Professional team.

No complaints, everything went smooth and as expected. Great option to rent a car, thought the limited kms would be an issue (200/day) but it wasn’t, I think I came in just under.

Hyundai Accent 2012
Zhen and the team we’re great! They picked us up at the airport and dropped us off after we returned the car. He was very flexible with times when we needed to pick the car up and few hours early and drop it off an hour earlier than expected. I initially rented a Chevy Cruze but was put in a Hyundai Accent when was fine and comparable. The place that the drive brought us to to sign paperwork was a little bit sketchy looking on the outside but the people were friendly and answered all my questions. I would recommend!

I cannot say enough great things about EV Rentals. Our Tesla Model S 100D was in perfect condition on pickup. They accommodated me even when I had a delay in returning the car. Took for a trip from Vancouver to Kamloops and it was the most comfortable drive with the car driving itself in autopilot most of the time. Best part...zero fuel costs with en route supercharging and zero emissions. I’ll be renting with EV rentals every time I spend time in Vancouver.

My wife and I rented a car from Zhen while we were in Vancouver. We only really needed it for a couple of hours to check out the city but Zhen and everyone we dealt with were very helpful. They picked us up at the airport and even worked it out so we could drop the car off after hours. I would definitely recommend using them if in the area.
Matthew G. - October 13, 2019

I was picked up from YVR airport at 11:15am, and by 11:30 I was at the rental office which was a short drive away, did the paperwork and was able to get the car on time at 12pm. Car was clean, and as expected. When I dropped off the car, we were offered a ride back to YVR airport or the metro station close by.

This is the response for the one star review made by Bowdy M. On Feb 6th Bowdy make a reservation for renting the Civic form Mar 5th 10:30 AM - Mar 12th 1:30PM On Mar 4th 9:30 evening i got his phone call telling me that he had landed, need the car now. I was totally caught off guard because he DID NOT make the trip change from Mar 5th to Mar 4th, and on Turo's guideline it is very clear that our business hour 9:30AM to 6:00 PM. But anyway I immediately dragged myself out of my house in dark cold night and drove 1 hour back to office to deliver the car. When I got back to my office, Bowdy was not willing to pay one more day rent which was $40. I was surprised because now you pick up the car on March 4th not 5th, every car rental company would be one day more, Eventually he paid $40. When he returned the car, he gave us one star rating for this $40. The reason why he didn’t change the trip pickup time on Turo was he was thinking changing the pickup time would cost $40(Turo will automatically charge one more day), picking up the car 12 hours earlier would save some money. That night when I got back my house it was 11:45 PM, you think I spent whole night away my family just to make extra $40? Anything I mentioned above we have documents to support. (such as official pickup time) Tim

The car was in good condition and the rental company was very flexible. Prices were good. Maybe one little bit of improvement for next time: the inner side of the windshield was dirty and we only noticed when the sun came out and we couldn't see the road anymore 🙃 after a quick wipe everything was ok ! Thanks and best regards, Christophe

This rental worked out perfectly. The car was spotless and was the perfect mode of transportation for our trip. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport, which made our arrival and departure really smooth. Thanks for making our trip great!
Kevin K. - July 17, 2019

Everything about the transaction was great and went smoothly. The rental was less than half the amount I would have paid from a traditional agency. The vehicle itself was clean, well maintained and a pleasure to drive. Zhen was also very nice to deal with and I will definitely recommend their services to anyone needing a rental car.

Pick up took a bit of time. Around 45mins. They operate with several names. Tax was not included and they make you pay for it during the contract. But overall the car smelled fine, and was operating perfectly. Insurance is mandatory as well. Be wary whatever your vehicle price is. Double that to get the true cost.

Enjoying a city is as much about which vehicle takes you there, and we were very fortunate to have had this car during our time in Vancouver. We had nothing but a lovely experience. Communication and accommodations with Zhen and his team was always a constant priority. We are so pleased with our time in Vancouver, as it would have not been as pleasurable without this experience.

I needed a car on very short notice and Tim was so accommodating! The car was ready, with a full tank when I needed it. Tim responded within minutes anytime I messaged him with a question, and was very understanding when I was a bit late to drop off the car because of traffic. Him and his staff even called me a taxi after I dropped off the car. Highly recommend and will definitely be renting his cars again whenever I visit Vancouver

I rented a car for the week to take a trip to a course I was taking in Whistler. The staff at West Coast were super helpful making sure that the car I did end up renting had winter tires, which were required for the drive. Overall, it was a good experience and I wouldn't hesitate to rent from them again.

Friendly and speedy service from the manager especially. The car had a battery issue so they upgraded me to a van which was even better considering I had a lot of stuff to carry with us during our trip to Kelowna. We went over the mileage slightly but it was only 1.5 extra. I would definitely rent from them again. 👍🏻
