Great experience with Ace. Less impressed with Carrentals.com. Ace employees informed me that the insurance coverage I purchased through carrentals.com was invalid in Canada. You need to inform renters of this. Won't be booking through them again.

  • Check the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the jack and lung wrench are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
