Thx for your this; I will definitely be sharing your service with friends, and you will be our rental choice indeed!
The vehicle I rented was very clean. I appreciated Terry’s friendliness and willingness to accommodate my preferred pickup and drop off times.
The rates were very reasonable!
There is nothing I could suggest to improve my experience with GSA.
Terry went above and beyond.|
He offered a level of service that is unmatched.
Sincerely and gratefully
You were quick, organised and offered to transfer us to the airport or ferry.
The big guys don’t offer THAT. You are my rental company on Vancouver Island.
Thank you Terry (GSA)
Stan and Anne Gardner
Thanks for your email and follow up re the brakes. Yes the rotor warp would have accounted for the shudder we experienced when braking firmly.
We appreciated your service and although the car we hired was quite old, it ran well and was very fuel efficient. It also had a good sized boot for our luggage which was ideal for our long road trip.
Ok with adding my comments to your page.
We are on our homeward journey right now and will be back in Perth tomorrow.
Thank you for the excellent service. The car was great fun and dependable. I loved visiting your Isalnd and I am definitely going to return. THANK YOU
warmly, Very Happy Visitor from New York
Thanks for everything you did for us this past weekend. So appreciated being picked up and delivered back to the ferry. Next time I will book a car earlier and get a compact. The Taurus was great but when you’re new to an area the smaller cars are easier to park. My experience working with you was so nice. I’ll be back the next time I’m out in Victoria. Hopefully sooner rather than later! Until next time- Ginny.
I just wanted to check in and thank-you for the car. What a great deal it was; it served us well during our stay.
We will keep your contact information for when we come back out.
Anyway, enjoy the autumn!
We had a great time on the Island, though quick – it gave a good overview to encourage us to come back.
Thank you so much for your great service. Your prices were the best, service was personal and timely.
I will gladly recommend your services to anyone travelling to the Victoria area and by all means, use this testimony on your page.
It was a pleasure, great customer service, and we will make sure to recommend you whenever the subject may come up.
Thank you, Terry.
Your service was excellent and what really impressed me was that, due to unforeseen circumstances, you couldn’t drive me to the airport to catch my flight home, so you arranged for a taxi to pick me up with no charge to me. I wouldn’t hesitate using your friendly service again.
You can add my comments, if you want, my your testimonial page.
Hello Terry my stay on the island was wonderful I wanted to say thanks for the rental, I had great mileage, comfy ride and because of you seen lots of the island. hope all is well! Was a pleasure doing business with you and if l get a chance next year l will be needing your services again. Thanks again Take care Freda
Left a review on Google and Yelp which probably have a little more exposure then your site. are there any other websites you would like me to visit?
These guys were able to rent to us on a spur of the moment, without a reservation, late on a Friday, just as all the other chain-places were closing. They even had a minivan, which the owner was using as a personal car. And their rates were completely reasonable given the situation. Great to work with!
Hope all’s well. Please add the following to your testimonial page:
My family had a very memorable trip to Vancouver Island and the minivan that Terry rented to us made it all possible. We traveled all over the island for 12 days and we really appreciated the extra space and the reliability. I’m happy that I found GSA because the rental rate was much better than any of the big agencies. Terry was a pleasure to deal with (thanks again for bringing my daughter’s wayward ipod back to the airport!)
The Davies Family, Pasadena, California
Thanks very much! We hope you had a good birthday celebration as well.
We had a great stay and the car was perfect. I think the only thing that could be clearer is additional costs involved. I guess I’m a little out of touch with being in Canada so always forget about tax but might be useful to include that as part of cost on the quote. In uk we have that all in the price so easier to see for foreigners. Minor thing though.
I thought your service though was excellent and personable. Also the value is way better than normal car rental.
Thank you Terry, we were very satisfied with your service and would not hesitate to recommend GSA to friends and family. It was a pleasure to meet you and you may absolutely add my comments to your testimonial page! All the best to you and your lovely family:)
Hi Terry, I just want to say that Sylvie and I appreciated your prompt, friendly and sincere attitude to ensuring that we enjoyed our stay on the Island. The car was clean, maintained, reliable and ran great. And not too bad on gas either. Your accommodating payment arrangement for the use of your PT Cruiser made the rental that much more appreciated and you even helped out by driving us to the airport afterwards! We hope to return and will look you up next time for sure. In the meantime, I will recommend the great service and vehicle you provided to any Island bound travellers.
Cheers and with thanks,
Renting from Terry was a pleasure. His service went above and beyond our expectation including a no charge pick up and return to the airport and an extension on our original rental contract. We were very happy with the car and will certainly use GSA again on our next trip out to the Island. 5 stars.
Thank you for the great service and flexibility with the rental. Everything went smoothly, and I will definitely be recommending your rental service to friends visiting the island.
Thanks again for the great service, we’ll be back!
Good Morning Terry;
Sorry for my delay in getting back to you.
Our stay was wonderful but you’re right, too short.
The service and rental was bar none top notch. I would recommend you and GSA to anyone and will be arranging another rental when I’m there in the future. I have already recommended you to a few people if they are ever there to give you a call.
Again thank you and look forward to seeing you in the future
Trish and Wayne
Sure Terry. We had a great time in Victoria and were very happy with the vehicle and the convenient service to and from the airport. The competitive rental price was also a big bonus for us. Looking forward to renting from you again,
All went well with the rental car, thank you. Taxi worked fine to airport.
There is a noise in the front left wheel which I reckon is coming from the brake mechanism as it reduces when you press the pedal.
Thanks for the rental, Terry.
It was a real pleasure to deal with you and I’ll be returning to use your services the next time I’m in need of a reliable rental.
I was more than satisfied with the dealings with GSA Auto Rentals. The service was superb, was picked up at arrival point and dropped off to at our departure point, with no hassle, but with assistance and a smile. Recommended Highly.

GSA Auto Rentals is my company of choice when I come to Sidney where I keep my boat. Terry treats you like a friend, not just a renter. The cars are well kept and I have never had any problems with them. Terry picks me up at the marina and takes me back when I return the car which really helps me out. The rental costs are fair and I plan to use him anytime I need a car in this area.
Thank you Terry for the quick and reliable service you provided us on short notice. After the initial call you picked us up at the airport and within minutes we were in a car and on our way hassle free. Looking forward to using your service again next time I’m in Victoria.
Jay & Megan Bentley
Thank you for the opportunity to rent one of your cars, it helped me out tremendously while there. I was very impressed with the courtesy and care. Whenever I return for a visit I will definitely give you a call for another rental. I did pass out your information to all my friends.
Sidney Taxi were great, they were there waiting for me when I arrived at 3:55 a.m.
Thanks again for a great experience!
Thank you, it all worked out OK. It was pretty close…we made it onto the ferry with just 2 minutes to spare. I arrived back in Mississauga on Monday night and am still trying to readjust.
Although the rental car was older and didn’t have all the latest tools and gadgets…only thing i missed was a USB charger so I just grabbed a car lighter/adaptor at the local store. That might be something I’d suggest if renting an older model. Feel free to use any comments as you like.
The car rental process overall was smooth and easy, especially with the pickup and drop off service.
No problems with the car at all and I was confident that if there had been anything, you were only a phone call away to assist. Next time I’m back in the area, I would definitely call you again for a rental.
Thank you so much for the amazing service. It is great dealing with a local business that cares about its customers. Thanks again for
returning my walker after I foolishly left it in the trunk. The car was great and it was very convenient being able to access it locally.
We look forward to renting from you again in the future when we need a car. We will spread the word about how good GSA Auto Rentals is.
Thanks for the great service,
Bob I Heather Jeary
Will do Terry! Thanks for the hassle-free, exceptional small town service!

Thank you for being so accommodating with renting your vehicle. There was enough room for us to have 2 families in one car…. I will definitely rent from you again…. great experience.
Just a quick note, Terry, to thank you for the car rental. We drove the Toyota up to Campbell River and back without a hitch and it was a lot better on gas than I would have imagined.
Our thanks for making the early morning drop off quick and painless. We will be using GSA again next time we are on the island.
Alan & Ginny Davidson, St. John’s, NL
We did enjoy our stay in Victoria. Our experience with GSA was smooth and without any surprises. Your affordable pricing and client friendliness was what made us choose GSA at first. However your personalized service was what sealed the deal. We would use your services anytime & recommend you to others. Thank you Terry.

We meant to leave you a note to tell you of our appreciation of the service we received from you! Once we got the right car, we were very satisfied with it and really appreciated the taxi to the airport! That goes above and beyond the service!
We hope to be back next year and would certainly rent from you again! Thanks so much for the great service! And yes, you can use our comments in your testimonial page!
Gerri and Ed
PS weather is beautiful here in Sudbury now! Warm and sunny!
I had a great experience renting our car from you. The pick up and drop off were easy and the car ran well. When the rear brake light “went”, I contacted you and you sent me to your mechanic who quickly repaired it and sent me on my way. I am potentially planning another visit to Victoria this Fall and I will definitely be calling you to re-book.
P.S. You can use my comments on your website.
Sorry for the slow reply.
I was really happy with my experience, you were happy to let me rent from you without a credit card which allowed me to continue with my holiday as planned, you also explained the insurance cover clearly so I didn’t have to worry about if I was sufficiently covered. The car was clean, in good condition, drove well and was good on gas. I also appreciated the lift to the ferry terminal and flexibility with return time.
The island is beautiful and having a car allowed me to explore it as I wished.
I am happy for to use any of this on your testimonials page.
Thank you Terry. It was a pleasure to meet you. We appreciated your personal service, and your concern with providing us with a good quality vehicle at a reasonable price. It was comforting to know that you’d be there for us should something happen during our rental period. We’ll be return customers, thanks![feel free to use this testimonial]
I am happy to provide you with a testimonial.
GSA offered a very reasonable rate for a car rental, even over the long weekend. He is obviously not out to gouge the customer as the bigger companies are. I really appreciated the pick-up at the ferry after hours! Overall, I had a very good experience in dealing with Terry at GSA.
Terry, tweak it as you see fit!
Thanks again for everything.
Judy and Sarah
I’m pleased to say that my experience dealing with you – from my first inquiry – was nothing short of timely, helpful and professional, and you can be sure that I’ll never consider renting from anyone else in the Victoria/Saanich area . You can also count on me to recommend you to friends & family! Thanks for making everything so easy.
You may use these comments in any way that you deem fit.
Renting our vehicle from Terry was such a great experience..so much more personal than from a large rental agency. It was great to get picked up in person and Terry even lent us a booster seat when we realized that we had forgotten ours! Not only was the price much better than with a larger organization, it was more personal, friendly and convenient. We will definitely rent from him again!
Hannah and Darcy
Thanks again for the nice rental.
Chad and Helen Thompson
Yes the trip was great, thanks for making the rental process so easy. The price is the best we could find. No problem adding my comments to your page.
Hopefully see you again.
All the best,
The car was fine and we enjoyed Vancouver Island very much. The car was very convenient for us as Terry picked us up at Canoe Cove when we arrived by boat.
You can add that to your testimonial page if it’s helpful.
Maggie and I can’t really suggest any improvements to your rental service. We were quite please with the PT Cruiser and the service you provided.
It was definitely a nice change from having to deal with the large car rental companies.
We will definitely be coming back to Victoria and definitely will be using your service.
You may use our comments in your testimonial page.
Gus & Maggie.
hi terry, yes had a great time visiting. the car worked well and was just what i needed. Picking me up at the airport took a lot of stress out of a long travel day, Thank You! Much Appreciated.
I do come up 4 times per year and will definitely call you when i need a car again.
I don’t have any suggestions to improve your business.
My road trip was very good with your car.
Thank you very much, Terry, for making this car rental so easy. The process of renting was friendly and simple from start to finish, the car was great and your rental rates are very reasonable.
And yes you can use my comments wherever you want.
Thank you, Anne
My rental experience with GSA was excellent. I do like the fact that you rent older vehicles therefore helping to keep rates low. You are definitely my rental choice in future.
Duncan and Kathleen
You can definitely use my comment. I would just like to let you know about the C.D player in the car in case you didn’t already. It is very challenging to switch cds as the ejector barely ejects it. we had to get creative with it. Other than that :
My experience with GSA rentals couldn’t have been better. The prices were fair and Terry was extremely pleasant to deal with. I would 100% go back if I ever need another rental.
Thank you for everything!
Amy St. Jarre
The service was excellent, you were always available to help us. Picking us up and bringing us back to the ferry was a very nice gesture. Renting from you made our trip really easy fun and affordable.
Clara and Diane
Ps: the only suggestion we have would be to leave a map of the island in the car 🙂 you can use our comment for your page !
‘EVEN WHEN WE GET IT WRONG, WE GET IT RIGHT’
The power steering was not the only issue. There is fuel leaking somewhere. On the drive from Victoria to your business, we smelled fuel coming through the ventilation system – enough to make my wife feel queasy. Last but not least, the dash temperature gauge is hosed up. Instead of going to zero when the car is turned off, it reads mid range and when the car is running, it pegs high. Thanks for rescuing us when we had our reservation mess up at the airport. That alone is more than enough to secure your services next time we visit. If you choose, you can use my comments.
We were delighted with the service you provided in all ways. You will get our business whenever we return, for sure. Yes to testimonial.
Agi and John
Thanks again, rental was great!
Sorry for the delay, life gets in the way when you get back from vacation!
I’m sure we’ll be renting again…..
Caroline and Murray Goertzen
Had a great week at Shawnigan Lake and presently in Calgary. The car served us well.
You have wonderful friends and they are very good ambassadors to your fine part of the world.
We understand about being tied up in Victoria and trusting us with the vehicle drop off without you even being there.
It is nice doing business with people such as yourself.
All the best and you can certainly use our comments for your own use.
Roger Gosselin & Sue Worden
Just want to thank you for helping me out of a jam while I was visiting Victoria. Coming from the States I was not aware that I could not rent a car with my Visa debit card like back at home. They insisted I have a credit card. Thank goodness you were there and got me a nice car for the weekend. The weekend of my daughters wedding!
Thank you so much for all your help and useful information while we were visiting Victoria. The car worked out perfect and getting to the ferry in the morning was also easy. We really appreciate you picking us up from the ferry and the extra attention we received. Yes you can certainly add these comments to the testimonial page.
Hope you have a great day!! And thank you again.
Nancy and Scot
No! Thank you Terry!
I was very impressed with your rates. It made my stay ever so much better since where my sister lives on the Island it requires a car to see the Island.
I had booked a small car from GSA a few months early before I arrived to the Island which I had asked for a pick up from the airport when I land with a return drop off. Terry was there even before I got off the plane. Now that is speedy service! I was given an option for economical or comfort as in A/C for a car. I took economical since I planned on doing a lot of sight seeing this time.
I will be returning next year and of course my first call for transportation will be GSA Auto Rental since a used car over a new car is so much better. There was no worries about the additional hidden fees that will be attached later when the car is brought back, and no holds on your credit card which is an inconvenience from a well known new car rental agency. The only thing Terry asks for is that the car is returned in the same condition as he gives it to you as in filling the gas tank to the mark you get the car at. So NO REMODELING the car with new dents, broken glass or missing parts. Treat his car as you would treat your own car with RESPECT.
I was not trying to impress anyone with a new car when I visit the Island and the main object of me renting a car was getting from Point A to Point B’s. This visit was about SEEING the Island not showing off a new car or driving in style. I think people must of thought I was part of the Island since I did not look like a TOURIST in a brand new car.
And yes Terry you may add this to your testimonial page. Thanks again for being there for myself, my dog and sister. Oh yea one more thing…. A used car rental IS pet Friendly. I have a small dog breed and I make sure the car is returned in the same clean state as I get it.
We had a great time, in large part due to your service and company. Thanks! Next time we visit, I’ll just reserve a vehicle with you and get a great vehicle at a fair price. Feel free to use my comments on your marketing material.
Awesome trip Terry! Would love to come back! Great little car and really appreciated your warm welcome and helpful advice- Even a map and sunglasses!
I sure wish we in Ontario could send the west some of our rain
The rental experience with you was great! I’m thoroughly impressed, and will recommend you to anyone who might listed (especially guests visiting our hosts in Saanich). I was particularly impressed with the absence of upselling and other gimmicky. Simple in and out – easy peasy.
I got flattened by a bug which accelerated the return of the car, which return came in the midst of unrelated family trauma (last minute shopping, other departures, etc.).
I’ve only just learned that the car wasn’t re-fueled. Ingrid realized this and returned to give you gas money. There was no one there so she left $20 cash in the glove box with the keys. I hope that was satisfactory. Apologies for the oversight.
Geoffrey and Ingrid
Thanks. Yes, our stay was too short but we enjoyed what time we had!
Are you listed on TripAdvisor that I could leave a (positive) review there instead? It would also be good exposure for you to be listed there; personally I’m very hesitant to book with travel businesses that aren’t there, but glad I took the risk this time!
Erin and Adam
We enjoyed doing business with you, and certainly would repeat when we return to Sidney.
Ian and Lise
We had a great time on Vancouver Island, used the car to tour around a lot and also took it to Salt Spring Island. Driving on the Island is easy, generally light traffic, good roads and parking is not a problem. The pick up and drop off at Swartz Bay ferry terminal was very efficient and something we could not get from any other rental company, so thanks a lot, see you next time.”
“Just wanted to first and foremost thank you for helping us out with the car situation. We were almost stuck without a rental car and we would have had a huge tab with the taxi cabs around there! Yes, of course you can use our comments. Thanks again we really appreciate it and we’ll see you next year!”
“We have safely traveled to France avec chien, settled into our apartment, welcomed our dog sitter (from Victoria) and travelled to Mexico City where I am writing this as we wait for a flight to Cancun. We look forward to doing business with you next summer as our plans are to spend our summers in Oak Bay. Thanks again and I will be in touch when I know my dates for 2016.”
“Hi Terry, I can’t think of anything to say to improve your business except to say keep up the good work your already doing, it always a nice surprise to get your kind of service,it’s not common anymore, I have given out your pens to 4 different people on the island who are looking foreword to renting from you when they have family visiting them in the future. Please do use my comments,that’s one of the first things I read when I’m searching for a business. Thanks again Terry see you next spring.”
“Hi Terry! Sorry for the late response, we all ended up getting stuck with a nasty cold when we got back to Calgary.
Thank you again for saving our Vacation! We were at the point where we were going to simply head back home, within a day or two because we couldn’t get a rental from anyone else.. Thanks to your saving, our daughter was able to put her feet in the ocean for the first time and we all had a wonderful first family vacation!
We’re looking to start planning another holiday to Victoria (Our daughter keeps asking when we can go back already!) and will definitely give you another call for a rental! Many Thanks again.”
“Hi Terry: Thank you so much for your letter that arrived today re: our car rental from April 29th for 1 week while we played, visited and fell in love with Sidney.
Both Martin and I were more then pleased with every aspect of the service we received from you. It felt so personal, and yet professional. We would without question rent from you again when we head back to the Island. You picking us up at the airport made it so easy, and our being able to drop off the van the night before our early flight also eased our transition.
Hope you are doing well, and again… Thank You for everything that you did above and beyond.”
“Hello Terry, Thank you for the car rental on short notice it was very much appreciative
Vancouver island was a very nice place.
I would certainly recommend your service’s to other people
But otherwise I am grateful for your help and hope to use your service again
“Hi Terry. Thank you very much for the rental. We had a great time on the island and we could not have done it without the ease of renting a vehicle with GSA Auto Rentals. It was a very pleasant experience in dealing with you. Thank you so much.”
“Thanks Terry for your part in making our week of cycling around the Saanich Peninsula ideal. Your selection of vehicle to accommodate 2 bicycles (with no price increase over the original quote), perfect maintenance of vehicle, your friendly and courteous manner, easy pick-up from and delivery to airport (and should we mention the chocolates in office while doing the minimal paperwork?) will have us thinking about another cycling adventure in your area.”
it was a painless experience and the service was swift, courteous with a great price. I really appreciate doing business with you. I have given your cards to some of our customers here that do visit Victoria frequently from Calgary and will make sure that you get more business from us.
Pleasant day and many blessings.”
“Hey Terry ,
Just logged on after minor ”decompress” time sir …
Thanks for the considerate email & yes any comments here you would like to use please do !
The trip was great & Victoria is a most beautiful place on earth .
Only wished we got a bit bigger car for all the” in/out” we did .
Aside that, gas mileage was better & easier parking to boot.
Would highly recommend Terry’s services to any1 that requires them.
Was a pleasure all around & will do it again in the near future.
THANKS Once again Terry , Have a great high season sir =)
Happy Easter Bud …”
“We would certainly recommend your company to friends. What sets you apart from other companies aside from price is your flexibility. You made life easier. Thanks you again.”
“Hello Terry , I really appreciate your personal touch when it comes to your business, fast friendly quality service , with no BS. I’m sad that I was in such a rush to leave and did not have more time to prepare the vehicle for return as my trip was a nightmare do to logistics on the part of IRP however with out your service I would have been stranded at the airport with a 14 year old boy a dog language ext. My son and I are grateful, I hope we meet again so I can thank you in person. Your very honest and reliable ………”
“It is without hesitation that I recommend GSA Auto Rentals to anyone visiting Vancouver Island. Not only did I receive prompt correspondence following my telephone inquiry but also at the Victoria airport. The GSA staff were extremely likeable and efficient. I did not have a credit card to use as collateral as is the criteria with most car rental places and yet GSA found a way to accommodate me with a car at a competitive price. The rental process took under five minutes. The organizational skills of GSA were exceptional and they followed up with me on the last day of the rental insuring I caught my plane on time, etc. I will never use another car rental company while on Vancouver Island!”
“Hi Terry, Thanks for the great service and great price on the vehicle rentals. We will definitely be back to rent off you again in 2015. See you then.”
“It was great, and we would use the service again!!!”
Lou and I have no problems to report and thought the service you offered was extremely professional. Being met at the ferry made picking the car up so much more convenient of course, as well as being dropped off there as well, and it was a pleasure to meet you also. Please feel free to add any part or all of this message to your testimonial page. We would be happy to recommend you.”
We had a wonderful visit with our daughter and her family. We cannot thank you enough for such great service and getting us out of a situation, which would have impacted our stay in Port Alberni!
Your company is definitely on our list for recommendations as a resource for car rental with friends and family who visit the island. We also will be contacting you for future visits to the island.”
“Great service with a friendly driver to meet us at the airport. Would definitely recommend GSA for a car rental.”
“Hi Terry, Jacob and I loved your service, very friendly and helpful. The car was so clean and easy to drive we had no problems at all.
Next time we are in Vancouver we are defiantly coming to you for a car.
Thank you so much.”
We most enjoyed our trip up your beautiful island, the car worked just fine, and we look forward to renting from you again.
we return to Victoria from our winter home in Hilo, Hawaii on April the 1st and will be here until October next year.Jack was most helpful and look forward to meeting you next year.
Best wishes, Aloha”
“Dear Terry, Very Happy that Cedarwood pointed us in your direction as we had a car type that we would not have normally been able to afford, thank you indeed.”
“Hi Terry, Jacob and I loved your service, very friendly and helpful. The car was so clean and easy to drive we had no problems at all.
Next time we are in Vancouver we are defiantly coming to you for a car.
Thank you so much.”
“Hi Terry, The PT Cruiser provided adequate transportation for the two of us. Cheers.”
“Hi Terry, Thank you again for the excellent treatment, we are very satisfied and hope to see you the Fall of 2015 if not sooner. Good days to you.”
“Hi Terry, I’m relieved to know there’s a car rental company that’s less than the others. My only wish is that you’d have great rates by the week/number of days so a monthly rental isn’t necessary and I could save even more. But still, it was better than Budget etc. and I appreciate your friendly service and pick up at the ferry.
I always love visiting the island. I leave my mum, daughter and my heart there with you,”
We had a great time on the Island and are glad we rented from you. We’d be happy to have you include the following testimonial (as reading others’ comments helped me feel confident in going with GSA):
“We were very happy with the service we received from GSA and would certainly rent a vehicle from this company again. It was really helpful to be able to be picked up at the ferry terminal and later dropped at the airport. Terry’s rates were very reasonable and we were glad he upgraded us (at no extra charge) to a minivan as it worked a lot better for us than the economy car we’d thought we’d rent. Terry replied very promptly to all our emails and was friendly and courteous. We liked being able to support an independent car rental agency for a change!”
“Thanks Terry, Your rates were very reasonable, the vehicle was clean and well maintained and the service was friendly and personal. Everything you need in a vehicle rental and nothing you don’t. Feel free to add my comments to you testimonial page. The only suggestion I could make, and I’m not sure how you could practically do this, would be to allow for out of hours dropoff with a key drop box. I do realize the problem with this is payment etc… though so it may not be practical.Thanks again, and no offense but I hope I don’t see you soon J, not for that reason anyways. Have a great weekend.”
“Hi there Terry, it was a pleasure doing business with you! You rose to the occasion when I had a problem and I appreciate that! I look forward to doing business with you and sure you can use my testimonial about how your saved the day when I got stuck in Victoria!”
“Thank you for everything. Our stay in Sidney was outstanding. We appreciated very much your service, flexibility and availability. Transportation was simply not an issue we had to worry about. Thanks for coming to get us and dropping us at the ferry terminal. Next time we are in Sidney, or Victoria, we will definitely be renting from you.”
“Thank you Terry, the car was great.”
“Rental car was great and I appreciate your help, thanks.”
“We made it back to San Francisco late last night. Just like you said, the pub in the Victoria airport was great! Sure beat the food we had in Vancouver by a mile. Thanks again for everything. You were great, and despite the engine light, the car was fine. We will definitely be renting from you again! I’ll be in touch in a couple of days regarding the form. We’re just now getting our feet under us again after being off for almost a week. Thanks, and talk soon. Have a great day!”
“Thanks for the inquiry, we did have a great vacation !! It gave us no trouble. We appreciated being picked up at the airport and the convenience of dropping it back there….Will certainly use your services again if we need a rental vehicle in the future.”
“Lou and I have no problems to report and thought the service you offered was extremely professional. Being met at the ferry made picking the car up so much more convenient of course, as well as being dropped off there as well, and it was a pleasure to meet you also. Please feel free to add any part or all of this message to your testimonial page. We would be happy to recommend you.”
“First of all we would like to thank you for being there and for going the second mile in trust in us. We had a wonderful time and told everyone we could about you and your car rental business. Nothing could improve our experience with you,. It was class!
You have a heart and I told you that you were the answer to my prayers. I am a deep believer in God and just that morning I had asked Him “It’s going to be interesting how you are going to get us out of this one”, and there you were. Thank you. If we are in need of a car to rent and we are in your area, you are at the top of our list. all the best.”
“We just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for helping on our recent vacation. If it hadn’t been for the help and GSA our vacation would have been in big trouble. It wasn’t until we arrived in Victoria airport that we learned that Budget would not honour our reservation because we only had a driver with no credit card and a credit card holder with no drivers license. One phone call to GSA and 30 minutes later we were on our way to a spectacular time in Tofino. Thanks again for the great help and service, we will be recommending your company to any friends heading your way. See you next year.”
“Terry’s service was personal and convenient. Much better than the soulless corporate guys!”
“Good Morning Terry: A huge thanks for all your help with our car rental and changeover for a van which accommodated our friend who has M.S. to travel around Victoria. Looking forward to renting from you again next year and will surely recommend you to our friends who may need your services.”
“Hi Terry: Thanks so much for the pleasant letter of thanks, after renting from you this summer. Just wanted to let you know I appreciated your friendliness, clean (well running) car and very reasonable rates. I will definitely rent for you again when I come back to the island, and will recommend you to my friends as well.”
“I would like to express my gratitude for your excellent service over the last couple of years. It has been a real pleasure doing business with you and I would recommend you very highly to anyone. If ever I need to rent a car again I will come back to you. I have been renting cars on a regular basis for a decade and GSA stand out for integrity, fairness, value for money and customer service, rare qualities in this business. I wish you every success in the future.”
“I most certainly will rent from you again next time I’m around which will maybe be in late spring. I was very happy with your service. I thought the pricing and terms were fair and you were most pleasant to deal with. I would most definitely recommend GSA to anyone.”
“Just a note to thank you for your good service and good price on a long term rental. A pleasure doing business with you. No hassle and excellent pricing. Made our trip much better. Thanks again.”
“Very fair and reliable business. Prompt and provided us with good service.”
“Excellent customer service, good prices, would recommend to my friends.”
“Very good. Everything was just as it was explained to us. We were provided with a reliable vehicle and professional service. Thanks Terry! We hope to see you next January!”
“Our experience was positive. Small glitches were attended to in a timely and proper fashion.” “We’ve used GSA twice and will again in the future.”
“Great experience, will rent again and will recommend to friends.”
“Terry, just a little note to say how much we enjoyed visiting Vancouver Island, the boys loved driving around in the “Skylark” as they called it. Many thanks for helping to make our trip such fun.”
“Thanks for the great service. The car was good, the price was even better, I will be back to see you on my next visit, and so will any friends I have visiting the area.”
“We have rented a car from you for the last 3 years, and have been very happy with your vehicles and how we have been treated by your professional touch. We have sent people to you as well and have had nothing but praise for you and your service. We and others that have rented vehicles from you, have commented to us how personal it was to deal with you and not a big business. We would recommend you over and over again to folks. You give them the respect that people need when renting a car or van that far from home. We feel that we can continue to send you our friends, because we know that they are being well taken care of by you.”

“The minute I met Terry, I had the feeling that he was a very trust-worthy person that I could work with. I am not aware of any of the several people that I referred to him encountering any problems which were not rectified to their satisfaction.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the use of the van we had for 10 days while we were on the Island. I definitely will recommend you to anyone who is going over there from Alberta. The van was clean, ran excellent and your prices were phenomenal compared to the rentals at the airport. The fact that you picked us up from the airport was a wonderful service and you made the rental transaction so simple. Again, thank you.”
“Next time we fly to Victoria and need a car rental, Terry Wallbridge and GSA Auto Rentals will be the only place that I will need to look for the transportation that we need. His units may not be the very latest models, but they are clean, smoke free and reliable. In summation, this is the best rental car experience that I have ever had. A personal touch not found anywhere else. An interest in his product and client, not very often found in today’s market.”
“I recently visited Vancouver Island with my family and needed a car for a week to drive from Victoria to Port Alberni and back. I’d heard good things about Terry and GSA, and when I contacted him, Terry said he’d be happy to deliver the car to us at our hotel in Victoria, even though he’s based near the airport at Sidney. He showed up right on time, gave us an excellent rate and outstanding service, and at the end of the week even drove us straight from his offices to the terminal at Swartz Bay so we could catch our ferry to Vancouver. Terry truly went above and beyond in his service to us.”
“Thank you very much for the van -we will definately call you again and recommend you.”
“We were pleased with the hire rate and the friendly service and the trouble you went to, to get us to the Swartz Bay ferry due to the cancellation of the Anacortes Ferry. All in all we had a great trip. Thanks again for your help and we will recommend you to our friends coming up your way.”
“Even on a Sunday Terry was happy to meet us off the ferry at Swartz Bay and courier us to his office, giving us a great, friendly welcome to the island in the process. The no-nonsense paperwork was done in a flash and we were very happy with our car, exactly what we had wanted and what we needed. After a trouble-free week exploring the island the drop-off was also very smooth and we were given a very comfortable ride to the ferry again. Many thanks Terry for your no-fuss, friendly style.”
“We would like to thank Terry Wallbridge of GSA. Auto Rentals for his wonderful service he gave when we came to Vancouver Island in September,his airport pick up and drop off service was great, the rental car was very clean and tidy, he made us feel at home while he did the paper work, cost as per quote no hidden cost what a great start to our trip. Highly recommend.”

“My experience with you and GSA Auto Rentals was very good in all respects. Prior communication to and from you was excellent as was your rental rate. I also appreciated the way we hooked up at the airport. You were exactly where you told me you would be and you were on time, therefore I didn’t have to hunt for you when I arrived. The paperwork was done in advance so I didn’t have to wait for it to be completed and the car was clean, comfortable and well maintained – plus there were no “back end” surprises. Your service, in all respects, was second to none and I would have no trouble recommending GSA to my friends. In fact, my wife will soon be making a trip to the island to visit family so you can most certainly expect a call from her.”
“This past July we visited Vancouver Island/Pender and rented a car from GSA. I just want to say thank you for your excellent service. Your rates were very reasonable, and when we had a problem with the car we originally picked up you promptly switched us to another vehicle so we could get on our way. We also appreciated being able to leave the car at the airport when we left. That saved us time and money, and was a great convenience. We look forward to renting from GSA again, and happily recommend it to anyone visiting Sidney and Victoria.”
“We experienced the most excellent service from GSA Auto Rentals (and of course Terry Wallbridge) when we rented a vehicle for 12 days in September (2008). As we look back, we can say with absolute confidence that you can trust GSA to provide you with top quality and ever pleasant service, and you will be enjoy the personal aspects of dealing with him. Terry went above and beyond the auto rental aspect of business, and undertook a personal favor to us after we had returned to Toronto, for which we will always be most grateful to him. As we look forward we will be repeating our business with GSA for certain.”
“We were very pleased with the wonderful courteous service that we received from GSA. Terry was friendly and helpful and we had full confidence in him and his vehicles. The service was personal and the price was excellent! Thank you Terry! If we come back we will use your service again. Highly recommended!”
“GSA Auto Rentals have consistently provided me with high quality vehicles and with exceptional customer service. Terry Wallbridge is a pleasure to deal with, and his prices are excellent. I continue to recommend him to friends and colleagues.”

“Hi, Terry. Thanks for looking after us on our recent visit to Victoria. We filled in and returned the form to the BBB. We’ll pass your name on to our friends in case they need a long term rental while in Victoria. Again, thank you for the excellent service. Best regards.”
“Hi Terry, Getting back from holidays there’s a lot of things to do…Just want say thanks for making my holiday a wonderful experience, the car drove great and felt comfortable and safe. I’m looking forward to my next trip to Van. Is.and when I do I’d like to be renting a car from you. Have a great summer!!!”
“I am very pleased with you and your company and will not hesitate to rent from you again and I will be recommending you to all my non-vehicle-owner friends. I hadn’t expected it to be seeing as it was Victoria Day. My sister and I appreciated you picking us up in Sidney and bringing us to your office on the day we started the rental.”
“Just a short note to say that we would be happy to be part of your testimonial network. We have rented with you for 3 years and have enjoyed dealing with you. We plan on renting again next year.”
“Thanks again for the hassle-free, affordable rental. Always a pleasure doing business with you!”
“I was recently out to the Island for a visit. I needed more time to see and do all. I phoned and just like that you extended my rental, no problem.I highly recommend your service to all my friends. It’s ideal for coming and going at ones own convenience. You can leave early when you fell like it or stay late,come late come early its great and the car ran very well. My only regret is that I had to leave just when all the farmers markets just started up. Oh well there’s always next year. Hope to see you then THANKS Morris”
“Hello Terry; We had a great time in Victoria and were very much pleased not only with the rented van but with the excellent service you provided in picking us up on our arrival at the international airport and delivering us to the airport on our departure. Our costs for your vehicle and your service was extremely reasonable. We certainly would recommend your company to anyone wishing to rent or lease a vehicle and will look forward to doing business with you on any subsequent visit to the Island. Thanks again”
“Dear Terry, A year ago we stole 2 pens from you – I know we stole them because it says so on the pens! We must have used them equally because they have run out within days of each other. We are hoping that we will be able to find refills for them because they are among the best pens we have ever used with their splendid rubber grips and, in any case, they remind us of you and of our wonderful trip to Vancouver Island last September. You might remember us because you very kindly brought the car out to the Butchart Gardens to hand over to us on a beautiful day.We hope you are well and thriving. Yes, we do want to come back but it will have to wait a little while.With all best wishes.”
“Hi Terry, Our friends were extremely pleased with the van, it worked well, having one occupant permanently in a wheelchair and the price was right. Thanks again Terry, we will continue to recommend GSA to our friends/out-of-town visitors. Feel free to use our comments on your website.”
“Hi Terry, I got your customer service letter and wanted to let you know that I would definitely use your service again if visiting the Victoria area…We appreciated your pick up and delivery service along with your reasonable rates. Thanks”
“Back home now. Got your note re comment for web site and I am pleased to give reference for your site.We had the pleasure of using GSA Sidney Car rentals and would recommend this service to anyone looking for service and convenience.We arrived out of hours and Terry met us at the Airport taking us to his office located on the airport where we completed all necessary paperwork. We had a lot of questions regarding Vancouver Island and how to catch the Bus and Ferry to Vancouver at the end of the stay. Terry advised us to return the car to him at the airport and book our Bus ticket with a highway pickup.We did this and we returned car very early on the morning. Terry drove us to a pick up point on the highway – not marked where we loaded all our bags onto the bus to Vancouver. Try getting that service from the big boys! With regard to the vehicle it was a little older in good condition and reliable for our purposes. The price was great compared to others and service exemplary. I give a big wrap to this company for service and friendliness as well as price where others are far more expensive.”
“GSA Auto Rentals has been our choice for rentals for some years. Terry has always provided dependable and professional service and we highly recommend GSA.”
“Hi Terry, We’ve been returning home to Victoria every year since 1983 and this was our first experience with GSA Auto Rentals. It was a good decision. The minivan was in great shape, the rental price was excellent, and we really liked the personal service, including your flexibility on the return time. Also, these days it’s very rare to receive a “thank you” note from a company, so that too was a nice touch. We’ll give you a call ahead of our next visit. (Feel free to use any of this on your website.)”
“Hi Terry,thank you for giving such great service to our valued winter guests. Mr. Krynowski gave me a note singing your praises. The Mayleds and the McElerhans are also delighted. I am asking our staff blogger to do a write up tomorrow and we have a new web site going live soon. We will ensure you are on that too.”
“What was outstanding was the convenience of the whole deal, plus your personal help loading and unloading our luggage. Supply of directions on maps helped a lot. To get a car that was trouble free with only a whistle or whizzing sound as a complaint. Use our comments as you wish then add we will be recommending your service to all our friends and relatives for the future.”
“I would definitely recommend you to an Island traveller and will rent from you next time I am on the Island. Your personal service was great. Having your office off site obviously allows you to pass on the savings to anyone who rents from GSA. I especially appreciated your guidance with my extra insurance. Both the cost of the rental and your good advice saved me a lot of money…again, thank you!”
“If only all businesses were as easy to deal with as GSA. Terry is so pleasant to deal with he gives all other rental companies a bad name. Rent from GSA you get a used car that works, at the best price around. What you do not get is the horror stories about bills and return policies from the usual rental sources, charges on your bill like, Location Charge, Advertising Charge, Franchise Charge, minor scratch charge, stone chipped paint, stone chipped windshield. Need I say more about GSA is a great place to deal with. Thanks again.”
“Thank you so much for your fine service. You made me feel I could trust you (airport pick up time ) and the rental car has not disappointed me. It has been a pleasure> I will use your company again and have given out a number of your business cards. Blessings.”
“We were very happy with our rental. Our stay on the Island was wonderful and will look you up again should we come back.”
“We would certainly not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone wishing to hire a car. We were impressed with your prompt and friendly service, especially the upgrade of car for no extra cost, once you realized we were going further afield than the Island. The car was comfortable & reliable and suited our needs admirably. It was a pleasure doing business with you, thanks for all your help.”
“Many thanks for your services for our car rental. Will recommend GSA if and when opportunity arises.”
“Just got back to Indiana and wanted to say Thank you for the GREAT service. We enjoyed our stay on Vancouver Island and will recommend your rental company to anyone. Thanks again.”
“We’ve been returning home to Victoria every year since 1983 and this was our first experience with GSA Auto Rentals. It was a good decision. The minivan was in great shape, the rental price was excellent, and we really liked the personal service, including your flexibility on the return time. Also, these days it’s very rare to receive a “thank you” note from a company, so that too was a nice touch. We’ll give you a call ahead of our next visit.”
“A great experience from the friendly staff to the reasonable rates. I will rent from them every time I’m on the island.”
“We arrived home late last night with very fond memories of our time in B.C. and were so pleased with our week on your island and thanks again for your kindness in meeting and returning two tired people from the ferry. So pleased with your car which purred along quite majestically, once we got used to the shock of your half price petrol – over here we are starting to consider selling the car and stocking up on loads of hay to feed our stable of rent-a-camels!”
“Terry provided very friendly and responsive service. I would be happy to use his service again and would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a vehicle on Vancouver island. It is nice to be able to support a local business rather than one of the big rental car companies. D.Scott”
“We had a great time and we were very happy with the service provided us. Everything went without a hitch and we greatly appreciated your personalized attention, especially picking us up at the ferry and the drop back to the airport by your colleague Jack Panter. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any friends who might be visiting the Island.”
“Very pleased with the courteous and efficient service from Terry and his staff when we hired a perfect car during August and September 2010, will have no hesitation in recommending GSA to anybody from the UK going to Vancouver Island. ”
“Terry, it was a pleasure doing business with you August. We’re so glad we found you on the Internet.We were very happy with the car we rented from you. It had all the features of our vehicle at home and it was a fraction of the price that we would have paid for a vehicle from a major car rental company. We’ve passed your company information along to our friends and family. With best regards.”
“My husband and I rented a car from Terry on a recent trip to BC on the recommendation of a friend of ours and we were very pleased with his service.”
“I rented a vehicle from Terry a few years ago…my husband and I were flying from California to Vancouver Island and needed transportation for ourselves plus 2 rental kayaks. This sounds simple, but it actually wasn’t at the mainstream rental agencies unless we’d wanted a giant SUV (we did not). I was SO happy to find Terry! He gave us great service, provided exactly the type of vehicle we needed, and was full of useful tips about the local area (cafes, etc.). I wish I were still on that vacation!!”
“Being from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and annual vacations to BC few and far between, I really appreciated Terry’s friendly, knowledgeable welcome to assist me in reacquainting myself with your beautiful Island getaway. I arrived in Vancouver via train @ 9:30am, & by 1:30 pm. I was on my way with my car rental, to my destinations eventually of Ucluelet and Tofino. Terry in his bright red vest was waiting for me when I exited the Swartz Bay ferry, & within minutes we were in his office completing the paperwork for the rental, & I was on my way up Island. The car was clean and efficient, & performed excellently on the many curves and summits throughout the rain forested areas. In total, I accumulated close to 1000 k from Oct 20-24. I also found the daily rates, unlimited mileage on the Island agreement, very reasonable. My visit was over far too soon,& I returned the rental Sunday afternoon, where Terry came in from home, on technically a non-business day, to the office, and drove me to the ferry terminal, & I was back in Vancouver for the evening. Having such great welcoming service to get me to the rental office, and then back to the terminal when my visit was over, were such great additions to my adventurous holiday.”
“Just a belated “Thank you” for all your assistance in helping make my trip to Victoria easier and more enjoyable experience. Thank you and I will be calling on you next time I’m in town.”
“Just wanted to thank you for your service, great rates and nice car”
“Found the procedures for renting a vehicle from you was very simple and worked well. Having the vehicle in Victoria certainly made the stay more enjoyable. We are booked again next year at the Royal Scot and we will keep you in mind if we don’t drive out from Calgary.”
“The car worked really well, again, thanks for anticipating that we would benefit from using the wagon, you were right! All the best and we’ll certainly keep you in mind if other opportunities come up to be out there again.”
“Hi Terry; Thanks for your letter! It does add a nice touch! Yes, we will rent from you again, if we come back. In our situation you can never tell from year to year! It is nice to be home, and the snow is nearly gone! Thanks again.”
“Hey Terry, Great Price, Great Service, Great Experience! Count me in as a regular customer who will promote and support GSA. Please feel free to post this in your testimonials.”
“Appreciated the courteous service, nice vehicle, easy drop off will rent again from Terry at GSA Auto.”
“Friendly and fun, courteous, convenient, pick up and drop off was much appreciated, will use GSA next time.”
