KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Edmonton

  • While the capital of Canada's Alberta region may offer good transportation services in the city, renting a car is a great option for travelers looking to embark on some outdoor adventures outside the city. Driving is the best way to get to must-see destinations that are fairly close to the city such as the Elk Island National Park, which is only a 35-minute drive from Edmonton and is the perfect place to hike, canoe, or even camp. Head to the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve, which is located just 40 minutes east of Edmonton, for an incredible stargazing experience and a good chance to spot the northern lights.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Edmonton International Airport (YEG), including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz. The car hire counters are located near the baggage claim area on Level P1 (Ground Level) of the Parkade. Some car hire companies may require that you contact them a few days in advance, so make sure you chose one that accommodates your needs.
  • Edmonton has a few interior highways and even a ring road, but you don't necessarily have to take the main roads (such as Whitemud, Yellowhead, or Anthony Henday) as they end up being the busiest. Look out for cyclists during the months when the weather is good. The weather can be quite harsh in the winter, so reduce your speed and keep a safe distance between your car and the other vehicles since roads can get slippery.
  • Although traffic in Edmonton is fairly manageable when compared to other Canadian cities, rush hour can still add an extra 30 minutes to an hour to your travel time. Take this into consideration when driving into or out of the city's downtown core, and avoid morning rush hour (between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.) as well as afternoon rush hour (between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.). The Anthony Henday freeway is one of the busiest roads in Edmonton during rush hour, as well as the Whitemud freeway, which is usually busy with traffic heading from south to north and vice-versa.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Edmonton for £44 or less

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Edmonton 
Verified travelerMar 2024
Rent an SUV or truck, definately worth the money. I had a great experience so no complaints.
Verified travelerMar 2024
Great service and good experience
ChatterDec 2023
Driving in Edmonton is nice. Streets are wide. Be aware most people drive about the speed limit and don’t run lights. So if you’re used to Ontario, you need to be in less of a hurry. That said I got everywhere I needed on time and easily. It was nice to drive here.
Verified travelerFeb 2024
No hassle at all, very good service and price
Verified travelerSept 2023
The rental agency mall opens at 7am. Try to avoid booking super early flights if possible in order to avoid having to wait.
Verified travelerJun 2023
As an Australian who lived here for a year 5 years ago I was anxious about driving on the other side of the road but it was surprisingly easy to slip back into. Interesting road rules at 3 or 4 way intersections and being able to turn right on a red light.
sheldonAug 2023
Driving is good, not too much traffic except when there are accidents
Verified travelerAug 2023
My recommendation if you could is… parking by backing up, always ready for go out from the parking

The lady at the front desk was very unfriendly when I went in to pick my rental up ..I was told on the phone by customer service that it wouldn’t be a problem that I didn’t have a credit card to put down for the deposit on the rental . I would just need to pay a little bit extra money because I didn’t have one so I would just have to pay it an extra deposit through my debit Visa card, and when I went to go pick it up, she said “no that’s not happening” and then turned her back and walked away on me. Needless to say I did not pick up the rental because I did not have a credit card for the deposit.

When we picked up car, a manager told about small chunk on the windshield, but did not add it in the report, because it was to small. When we drop off the car, he said that we did the chunk, it wasn't before.

Unfortunately thrifty charged us for the extra insurance even though our booking we did online had already charged us for this. When I discovered this they would not give me any money back so I paid far too much for this car rental.

Good customer service, I hope the rental price lower a little bit. Good new gas deal, paying ahead to not fill the car at gas stations , down side of it if you use less gas don’t get the money back.

This experience is enough for me to remember to never use thrifty again. First of all, my pickup time was listed as 4pm. We got held up at customs so I called the pickup office at 4:03 to let them know we would be there very soon but there was no answer. Called multiple times and could not get ahold of someone. As we were about to get into a taxi to go to their location I see somewhere that their listed closing time is 4pm. So we get out of the taxi and I call customer service to verify before I haul myself and my family out to their office. I spoke to a customer service rep who them put me on hold for 20 minutes!!!! When they returned to the line it was a completely different representative who I had to repeat everything to. She began checking for other rental options but was unable to find anything. She did tell me my rental was available for 24 hours so we could go there when they opened at 7am. Only problem is that we had not planned to stay in town! We had planned to drive 4 hours to our hotel, so we were left trying to rearrange our plans as well as paying for a hotel room. The following morning I took an Uber to the pickup location and told them about not being able to pickup our vehicle yesterday because our pickup time was their closing time. The rep says, “oh I was here until 5pm”. Ok, that’s great, why didn’t you pickup the phone then?!? Whatever, I got the vehicle and right away noticed an OVERWHELMING soap smell. Like it smelled like they had grated an entire bar or zest in the car. I took the car and figured I just needed to air it out. So the more time passed we realized that they had been trying to cover up the smell of smoke. So the soapy smell went away and for the whole rest of our trip the car reeked of smoke. We had a Kia forte which we thought was kind of noisy, maybe it’s just the car I don’t know but gas efficiency seemed to be really good. That’s everything. I will be writing to thrifty customer service to see if they’ll credit me a day of car rental as well as losing my one night at the hotel we paid for. I’ll update on the results here.

Car hire insurance in Edmonton

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

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

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 non-deductible option to your Edmonton car hire.
