KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kamloops

  • Car hire in Kamloops provides you with more flexibility than if you were to use alternative modes of transport, such as a bus or train. This is because you can travel whenever works for you rather than having to wait for public transport schedules. For example, if you travelled to the nearby town of Aberdeen, you could do so in about 12 minutes by car. The same journey using a bus would take around 45 minutes and you would also have to abide by the schedule for departures.
  • Kamloops Airport (YKA) has a range of car hire options for you to pick from, including National, so you will be able to find a suitable vehicle with ease. To get to the car hire locations, you should exit the terminal building onto Airport Road and turn left, from where it is only a short walk to the car hire offices.
  • When you get a car hire in Kamloops, you will realise that it is a popular city throughout the year, with it being great for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. There isn’t a law in Canada that restricts people from crossing the road at will, so you should stay alert to holidaymakers crossing at non-designated zones. Cycling is also a popular sport in Kamloops, so you make sure that you check your mirrors regularly, especially when you’re coming up to a turn.
  • When you get a Kamloops car hire you will see there can be quite a lot of traffic, with many people travelling to enjoy the great outdoors. This can make driving a bit difficult in the city, especially if you’re in a new car with unfamiliar surroundings. If you don’t like driving on the road with lots of cars, then you should avoid rush hour, which is usually from 06:30 to 09:30 and 15:00 to 19:00. Victoria Street, which is near the train station, can get particularly busy, so it’s a good idea to stay clear of this road and find an alternative route.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Kamloops?

    The city is extremely popular with winter sports fans and hiking lovers, so it can get quite busy. If you’re planning to stay in the city, then a small car, such as a Chevrolet Spark, is a good option; it will make parking easier. However, if you want to go out and explore the mountainous surroundings, you will need something a little tougher. For instance, a Hyundai Tucson offers great handling as well as superior grip on steep terrain and the ability to drive on most surfaces with ease.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kamloops?

    You must stick to the speed limits when you’re driving your car hire in Kamloops; otherwise, you are putting yourself at risk of an accident or being prosecuted by the local authorities. In general, on the motorway, you can drive as fast as 120 km/h, but some zones are limited to 100 km/h, so you need to watch out for this. In rural areas which aren’t motorways, you can usually drive at 80 km/h, whereas in Kamloops and other urban places, the maximum speed that’s allowed is 50 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kamloops?

    You can park on the street in Kamloops.

There are also lots of car parks, such as St Paul Street Parking Lot, which costs roughly C$ 6 (A$ 6.64) per day or C$ 75 (A$ 82) per month.

Pros:

The staff in Kamloops were very helpful.

Cons:

Description of how to drop off the vehicle in Vancouver. There was no signage and we had to visit the tourism information and then speak to people at the hotel to determine where to drop the vehicle off.

They really need to advance into the 21st century. everything nowadays is digital. My credit card is part of my digital wallet but it's not good enough for them. The staff is very friendly, Kind & helpful, it's the company BS & hoops you have to jump through that make this a poor customer service exp.

We did enjoy traveling in the brand new Grand Caravan. No problems occurred. It was the right car for our requirements. Staff (Sam) is very courteous and processed car retune expeditiously. Weekly rate was reasonable, while peers raised there rates to astronomical values due to shortages / high demands. Keep up the good experience and rates reasonable. We will be back for our next rental.

I booked for an economy vehicle cause gonna be there’s 5 of us in the vehicle. I got to enterprise and they’re saying they only have a 4 seater. They couldn’t offer me the other ones they have which are SUVs cause apparently I need to be 28 to be able to (which I know was BS). Right when we came to an agreement for me to take the 4 seater for a lower price, a customer came and returned a crossover suv. I asked if I can get that instead and they agreed. They cleaned it for less than 5 minutes when I said I’m not in a hurry cause I’d really rather have a fully sanitized vehicle. But I get in the vehicle and it smelled really bad, like mad sweat. Left the city at 3AM, took the highway and found out the vehicle shakes REALLY BAD when going 80km/h and above. Considering we’ll be driving for 4hrs on the hway, we didn’t feel safe being in it at all. But we all got to be somewhere for work so we went through with it. It’s to the point we couldn’t even talk to each other cause our voices were shaking so much. Called the company in the morning to get my vehicle replaced and was told to contact rental companies in the city I’m going to to get it replaced. No compensation, no empathy, no nothing. So I called a bunch of places in the city and was told that all their vehicles are out and won’t have one til 2 days after. Except for the airport location which is a very inconvenient 35min drive from where I was staying. Anyways, got my vehicle replaced. Clean economy car. But I was just feeling so frustrated how the workers did not have any empathy at all. Well, they let us bring the vehicle back without a full tank but with all the stress we had to go through, risking at safety and all, I think that compensation was not enough at all. Very disappointed.

Pros:

The car I got had a clean bill of condition but I found several significant dings and scratches that I may have been held responsible for.

Cons:

The original booking was at a good rate, but when I extended it from 10 days to 2 weeks, I was very unhappy at the increased rate - I would have expected it to be the same or even better given a weekly rate - it went from $30/per day through the independent booking site to $45!!

I was waiting on my budget rental will be $ 200 something with everything included but when I got there, they let me know only car rental will be that much without insurance for the days I booked. They should be transparent at that time on the website.

Car hire insurance in Kamloops

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Kamloops 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 Kamloops.

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 Kamloops car hire.
