KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Whitehorse

  • Car rentals in Whitehorse are the ideal way to travel around this rural city in Yukon, Canada. In Whitehorse car rentals, you can get through town from the McBride Museum of Yukon History to the Starbucks to the SS Klondike Steamboat. In Whitehorse car rentals, you can enjoy the surrounding nature including Marsh Lake, Teslan Lake, and Mount Lorne, and in 2 hours, you can drive into Alaska, to the south of Whitehorse.
  • Since the Eric Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport (YXY) is in the heart of Whitehorse, situated just off the Alaska Highway, it makes an ideal location for securing car rentals in Whitehorse. Agencies are easily located in the arrivals area of this small, single-terminal airport. The rental cars are parked in the parking lot just outside the terminal. This is where you will pick up and return the rental vehicles.
  • Driving to, through, around, and outside of Whitehorse, the capital city of Yukon, Canada, can be adventurous, to say the least. The two main roads you will be using are the Klondike Highway, which is open the whole year round, paved and well-maintained, and the Alaska Highway, which tends to be less well-maintained and more barren and lonely than the Klondike Highway. Driving within the town of Whitehorse itself is simple and stress-free since the town is laid out as a nice, neat grid.
  • It snows in Whitehorse from October to April. Therefore, the biggest problems you can encounter while driving car rentals in Whitehorse is the intense winter weather. Make sure that when you pick up your rental car, you have in the vehicle a snow brush, an ice scraper, and an emergency roadside kit. In the warmer months, encountering animals on the road can be a big problem. Those driving car rentals in Whitehorse need to be cautious at all times of wildlife in the road. Running into some of the massive mammals that live in Yukon could do severe damage to you and your rental car.

The Yukon requires that lights are on all the time. The roads are OK even during winter and not difficult to navigate
Verified travelerNov. 2023
Driving in Whitehorse during winter is easy as long as you drive slow and follow the common sense of the road. Driving Force is an excellent rental company.

There are a few parking meters downtown but parking is free after 5:30pm. Easy downtown area to walk. Restaurants everywhere.
Verified travelerSep. 2023
Must yield to pedestrians crossing the street on non-stoplight intersections. For an American like me, the speed limit may seem slightly slow, but that's OK.

Excellent! Staff at airport (Pauli) was efficient and helpful. Car was spotless. We had to put down an extra $200 as a retainer in case we didn't fuel up car or we put too many miles on it. I expect to get that $200 back. I'll check my credit card statement on a day or two. I would recommend Driving Force.

Instruction given to collect car key is very clear. Professional services. We are given a new car and also is what we have booked. But just that there is a message on the car dashboard “need servicing”. Thank you Driving Force.

Fast check-in. Helpful customer service agent, who clearly explains features and limitations. Clean car. Everything was great. Even though I had never heard of Driving Force (nor how their business was being brokered by Rentalcars.com), everything ended up being just as straightforward as one of the major rental car agencies.

A bit of a line up. A small operation with 4 cruise ships in town. Car, and information given was great. I highly recommend driving to Whitehorse if you have at least 8 or 9 hours.( can be done in 7 hours) Very scenic drive.

Pros:

Good selection of cars, quality of available vehicle overall is excellent. Onsite personnel are friendly, helpful and professional.

Cons:

Somewhat pricey, but in Skagway, AL (pop 1057 as of 2015), they are pretty much the only game in town, as far as I know. Office could be a bit more spacious.

Pros:

Everything was great. The car was clean, filled with gas and ready to go when we arrived. Paperwork was handled quickly and efficiently and I appreciated the emails I received prior to pick-up confirming the AVIS location. We were fortunate in that it was a slow day for AVIS -- I was informed that the next three days they were sold out which would certainly affect the pick-up experience. Good value for Skagway, but expensive by lower-48 standards!
