KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Calgary

  • Get to see most parts of Calgary in the comfort of your own cheap car rental. Most likely, you will want to visit Prince’s Island Park, which is a 7-minute drive or approximately 2.2miles (3,5km) from the city center, or tour the famous Calgary Tower before heading to main downtown spots such as Fort Calgary and Bow River. On weekends, you may drive 9.7 miles (15.6km) from downtown Calgary to Bowmont Park to enjoy the city’s spectacular views or drive west, a distance of around 46.7 miles (75.1km), to have a picturesque view of Kananaskis mountainous areas. Choose your ride from the available Calgary car rentals and have some fun while your vacation lasts.
  • Rent a vehicle from Downtown Calgary to conveniently travel around and outside the city for official or tourism reasons. The car hire companies in downtown make it easy for you to pick out the best set of wheels for your travel needs. Choose your perfect rental car from companies such as Hertz, Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, Dollar, Driving Force, Budget, and Thrifty and venture out and about whenever and wherever you feel like doing so during your stay in Calgary. All you need to do is to visit one of the numerous car hire offices in central Calgary, especially along the 1st Street or Macleod Trail corridor, present your car booking documents, pick up the vehicle of your choice and start your exploration in style.
  • If you are looking to drive around Calgary, you need to know that the city uses the metric system. What this means is that all distances and speed limits are marked in kilometers. The city also makes it mandatory for drivers and even passengers to wear seat belts at all times. Plus, the city makes it illegal to use mobile devices or cell phones while driving. In the winter months, check with the local meteorological department for weather reports and real-time driving conditions before getting around. Make sure to confirm with the Department of Motor Vehicles in Calgary for new traffic laws before picking up your car rental.
  • 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 rental 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 rental 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.

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.

Service representative was the least helpful person I've ever had at any rental car company. Pickup document showed full gas tank but was actually one quarter full. Luckily I took a photo before I drove off with the odometer and fuel tank level. When dropping off, told the same rep about the tank and he asked me to take a photo of the odometer and fuel gauge. The representative also had a proper conversation with a prior customer who is likely from the same geographic region as himself but did not provide that same level of service to me. I don't need to be pampered, I'm just saying bare minimum service levels need to be had with everyone. Gave avis a try but won't be renting with avis again after this experience.

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.

The car was excellent and in excellent condition, but there were a lot of hidden fees that the company kept silent about. When choosing a car, the price on the website was $68 for two days, with hidden fees they charged $412 for two days. This is not pleasant, the company must inform customers about hidden fees. I will never go to Budget again because I feel cheated.

My arriving flight was delayed by a few minutes. Then, for no obvious reason, we waited 30 minutes to get our checked luggage. I was 15 minutes past the ‘pickup time’ that I had entered on kayak, and the desk was closed. After a frustrating call to the Budget Call Center, I was told the airport location closed at the exact time I had booked the pickup for, and there was nothing they could do for me. A warning when I booked it and/or a call or text before they closed up for the night would’ve saved me a lot of middle-of-the-night frustration at the airport.

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 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.

Pickup and drop off take a lot of time. It will take an hour from reaching the pickup spot until you have a car. There’s a $1500.00 deposit, which they keep for a week after you return the vehicle. They want to see your insurance for YOUR vehicle (???) as well as the insurance documentation you plan to use, such as credit card. My confirmation clearly stated it was unlimited mileage but it was not. There are fees for driving out of province. Fees for extra driver (that’s not all that’s unusual) This takes way too much time, is misrepresented and there are hidden fees. Also… attitude. I would not recommend this place.
