KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Calgary

  • While hiring a car in Calgary provides a great deal of freedom and flexibility, it's important to keep in mind the parking restrictions in the city. Calgary has many parking zones with different time limits and fees, and parking enforcement officers are vigilant. Make sure to read the signs carefully and follow the instructions to avoid parking tickets or fines. Alternatively, consider using paid parking lots or parkades, which are located throughout the city and offer affordable rates.
  • Calgary is a gateway to some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the country. Some of the most popular road trips include Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, and Lake Louise. These destinations offer stunning scenery, hiking trails, and opportunities for outdoor activities. With a Calgary hire car, you can explore at your own pace and take detours as you wish, and you won't have to worry about being limited to the public transport schedule and route.
  • If you plan to drive in Calgary, it is important to know the traffic laws in the area, such as the use of four-way stops at intersections, where the vehicle to arrive first has the right of way. It is also essential to keep a safe distance from emergency vehicles and to yield to pedestrians at all times. Additionally, be cautious when driving in winter, as roads can be icy and snowy. It is illegal to use a handheld electronic device while driving. Additionally, Alberta uses a demerit point system, which means that if you accumulate too many demerit points, you may lose your driver's licence.
  • Calgary is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Situated at the junction of the Bow and Elbow Rivers and with the Canadian Rockies on your doorstep, exploring the surroundings of Calgary is a dream with a hire car. The world famous Banff National Park is only a little over an hour’s drive west and will leave you awestruck with the picturesque turquoise glacial lakes, untouched wilderness, and natural hot springs. Canada’s third largest city by population is located nearly 3,500 feet above sea level and has something to offer for every willing traveler.
  • Once you land at Calgary International Airport and collect your baggage, follow the signage to the Car Rental Center elevator. On the second level you will find the counters of multiple major car hire companies including Hertz, Avis, Budget, and Thrifty. The drive from the airport to downtown is seamless along the AB-2 S Highway and will only take approximately 25 minutes. If you are heading to Banff National Park you can either take the Highway 1, which will allow you to pass through Calgary on the way, or the Stoney Trail (201) Highway, which is a more direct route.
  • Canada, and specifically the mountain range, is blessed with wildlife that sometimes feels an explorative urge and wanders onto the roads. Be mindful when driving and keep an attentive eye out for animals. If you do approach any hazardous animals, remember to drive carefully and reduce speed.
  • Thanks to its higher altitude, Calgary can experience significant snowfall in the winter months, causing difficult driving conditions. The roads are designed to best deal with this snowfall; however it is important that you follow some simple tips to increase your safety. Scrape any accumulated snow off your car before driving, paying extra attention to the windows and headlights. Listen to weather reports and adhere to any warnings; the city has a Traffic Advisory station which you can tune in to at 106.5 FM. Be mindful to reduce your speed when driving in poor conditions and be extra cautious around pedestrians.

Rent at Enterprice. Fair deals and good customer service. Never go to Budget. We learned it the hard way. Next year we will be renting at Enterprice again!

Easy to get around. Did not take winter tire package and was still fine on city roads.
MoniqueSept 2023
We were in Canmore. The drive to Canmore was easy and the road great. The nearest gas station we found to fill the car before returning it was at 430 Country Hills blvd NE, T3K 5A5. It is at 8 minutes from Budget.
RussellSept 2023
The roads are excellent and traffic is busy but nothing like LA. Parking downtown can be a little expensive, but it is nice to see such nice accommodations for walking paths, bike paths, parks and scooter rentals if you are not driving around.
Verified travelerOct 2023
A fantastic idea, glad I decided to rent be shuttle. Driving in Calgary is super easy and the highways to Banff are wide and not congested. Was a very pleasant drive getting around!!

Calgary is very car-focused so driving is pretty easy. The place is very sprawled out, and though their transit system (especially light rail) are great, driving makes life a bit easier.

Do not use Thrifty. Use Enterprise - they were excellent and found a car for me at short notice

Leave some distance with trucks on highway. They can spray your windsheald with snow, and you wont see anything infront of you for a few seconds.

We scheduled an Uber driver to pick us up when we dropped off the car and put the key in the night box and everything went perfect . They are only open week days from 9 to 5. If you can make that work , they are great. It worked perfect for us.
Verified travelerAug 2023
We paid a small additional fee to return our car to the airport instead of back to where we got it from which would’ve been out of the way and a hassle.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Layout of Calgary is very simple. Several major roadways (“trails”) get you to the area of your destination. Smaller streets and avenues branch off from there.

Calgary is a large spread out city. We would have been lost without Maps on our cell. We got around Calgary very easy with it.

Study the main thoroughfares on the map to understand the general flow of traffic in and out of the core areas and expect construction all the time - it’s a growing city that never stops expanding.

Had a problem with Banff city parking over a weekend. Parked the vehicle and while purchasing parking pass, some one kept a ticket for parking violation. Need to send all the snips showing the time to waive it off. So be careful on parking in banff city. Purchase the parking token soon and keep record of the same.

Book early. It’s difficult to find rental during peak times.

When you are on the busy roads traffic is crazy. I tried to use more side roads to get to my destinations.

They were able to accomodate a last-minute booking on a busy day. The staff running the car return was friendly and accommodating, especially when I had to return and ask about an item I had forgotten in my rental car. The staff was able to locate and return my item in a timely fashion and were very friendly about the whole ordeal.

At airport staff didn’t care and told me they are only concerned with big damages and had to find them hiding in a car then fight with them to mark anything down but once at drop off location they made a huge deal over a rock chip that was already there and now I’m being charged for a new windshield seems like a scam

First off, communication between the rep and I at pick up from the Calgary terminal went well. Overall the gentleman was accommodating and courteous. However my interaction at the drop-off location didn't go as well. I had planned to drop the vehicle off at 4pm on a Saturday at the McPhillips St location in Winnipeg, MB. I received a call from a Hertz rep from McPhillips stating that their location closes at 4pm however, I could return the rental to the Erin St location as they close a little later and stated to me that there would be no extra charges made to me if I decided to drop it off there instead. 4pm hits and upon arrival at the Erin St location, a rep named Yuting came out as I pulled in to inspect the rental. After a quick inspect, it was claimed that I chipped (small rock chip) the windshield, the windshield that already had a rock chip in it at pick up. I advised Yuting of this and she asked me to email my video/photos from pick up to her for management review and since, I have had received zero communication from Hertz. My credit card was authorized for a specific mount, including a “damage deposit,” that authorization sat on my card for a week until it fell off. Now, instead of charging my card the authorized amount I signed the contract for, they’re charging my card small unauthorized amounts that equal and surpass the original authorized amount I signed for with absolutely no communication with me. I book rentals on a somewhat regular basis but I don't normally book rentals with Hertz, as i normally do with Enterprise and have never had an issue... I will never be a returning customer of Hertz…

Made a booking reservation 20 hours in advance. Once I got there, I was told they aren't accepting any booking reservations made in the last 24 hours. Was stuck in a hotel for 2 days, waiting on a vehicle. Horrible experience, and was still charged for the extra insurance with no way to call someone about it.

Pickup was very poor. The staff at the front desk were very nice and professional. The problems began when selecting and picking up the car. We were asked to check the condition of a black car in an closed garage with poor lighting. Next to impossible. Then you have to show the problems to an agent who has some sort of screen to look further. About a dozen people were all leaving at once and so it took the better part of an hour from being shown the car to actually leaving the airport. Once we got it out into the light it was obvious we had missed a scratch. Upon dropping off, the process was very fast. However I wasn't given a receipt, and the one promised to my email never came. So now I have to chase it down. The car itself was otherwise fine, and was problem free.

Cons:

I rented a car through kayak only to be told by the vendor on arrival that they were sold out and the online merchant who sold the deal to me neglected to give them any contact so that they could let me know. This was discovered after my ride left leaving me stranded on an unfamiliar road in an unfamiliar city in the cold at 5 PM when essentially everything was shutting down and derailing my plans completely. It looks like you over sold and now are pawning me off on the third party (carrentals.com) for resolution “in a few days.” The reservation was paid in advance for a rental that KAYAK was claiming to guarantee and failed to deliver. On your own website you write “we work hard as the world’s leading travel search engine to get our users the information they need so they can plan trips the way they want, confidently.” In big bold letters no less! What a crock, this was my first experience booking through you and I’ll be sure to tell everyone I know about my experience with KAYAK. Finally I request again you either secure a car so I may complete my delayed travel or refund what I paid. Thank you.

We waited in line for 20 minutes only to be told they had no car for us. They walked us down to Hertz where we waited another 30 minutes in line only to be told we had to wait for a car. We waited 45 minutes. We ended up arriving to our destination over an hour late and missing an important dinner. The car itself was fine, but we will never rent from dollar again - when you add in the list time and missed dinner with colleagues, this was a very expensive rental and one we don’t want to repeat. There was no apology and no explanation - they oversold and did nothing.

The car has a slow leak in the right front tire. I wish I'd paid better attention to ensure the care had cruise control. Leaving the parkade on foot involves a trip through a nasty old stairwell and corridor where I thought I might get stabbed. The frost scraper was badly chipped and mostly useless. If pickup/dropoff was an option, I wasn't made aware of it.

I had no problems on the drive from Vancouver to Calgary (and all the sightseeing trips in between). When I dropped off the car the staff even gave us a ride to the hotel, saving us cab or Uber fare.

Pros:

Ultimately the truck was really dope

Cons:

Couldn’t find the shop easily because it was named discount rentals with no street signage of europcar. When we arrived they didn’t have the car we ordered and uphold us to a truck. That I was three hours late to get the car shouldn’t have been an issue, my planes were delayed so I was delayed.

Pros:

We were allowed to drop off at 40 Hopewell Way NE. a location closer to the airport. Tony He and Ravdeep Singh were professional and cordial. They proceeded to inspect the vehicle and process through. We were shuttle to the airport immediately. ALL RENTAL EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE THIS WAY. EXCELLENT!

I must have phoned the number at the airport, the 1-888 number and gone on the website to cancel the reservation 10 times. The phone numbers were useless, nobody ever picked up and the online took multiple tries to get a confirmation cancellation, I finally went to another company and would not ever try the company again.

The drop off/pick up is outside of the airport. If you need to drop off the car early and they are closed you have to drop off the car and take an Uber or taxi to the airport at your own cost. Just a heads up when booking.

This company and Qeeq were not willing to hold my car until my arrival at the airport and charged me a day rental for canceling the car even though I had pre-paid Would not recommend them as they are hard to deal with

I paid for the rental but my husband was doing the driving. This was not allowed and wehad to add me as a driver for 10 /day. I thought this was unnecessary and we have not encountered this before.

My flight delayed and I contacted the zoom office to inform them but they told me I still have to pay late pick up fee 350 CAD. Then I asked them to adjust the drop off time equal to the extra time I pay for but they refused.

They charged me $1500 on my visa. Not a hold. It took a whole week to get my money back. They could not electronically return it after I returned the rental car a day early. They had to write me a cheque. I was not happy that it took so long and it inconvenience me.

The first thing we saw, was the place is absolutely filthy. From the doors, floors, the chairs…everything was filthy. After we waited, sometime to be helped, as they were helping other people, we could hear what they were charging them for deposit, etc. When it came to us, we were asked to pay $1500 deposit. And that came with a smug look and a shoulder roll, we believe 100% that was because of our outer appearance, being plus size people. We asked why the dramatic difference from $500 to $1500 and the response we got was because Alberta residence pay more. This isn’t the first time I’
