KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Calgary

  • 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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Calgary for $79 or less
  • Book your car hire in Calgary at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Calgary are around 5% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Economy hire cars in Calgary are around 10% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Calgary 
Verified travelerJune 2024
Make sure the vehicle is full of gas upon pick up. The gas tank indicator on the instrument panels on many vehicles are not very accurate, and can be off by a considerable amount of litres of gas. Also give yourself enough time for the return of the vehicle, especially if you have to catch a flight. This rental agency is very busy.
JenniferMar 2024
If you book ahead and are friendly you will have a fantastic experience.
Verified travelerMar 2024
Excellent car, exceptional client service, clean fleet!
DellasApr 2024
I have never driven suv before. Handled like a small car. Upon online bookin I booked extra collision but when picked suv up found I could have insured with Avis. Which I would have. But no trouble.
Verified travelerJan 2024
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!
NikhilDec 2023
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!!
Verified travelerSept 2023
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.
Verified travelerSept 2023
Do not use Thrifty. Use Enterprise - they were excellent and found a car for me at short notice
YokoSept 2023
It is easier to rent a car at airport

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 travelerJuly 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.
Verified travelerJuly 2023
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.
MelissaJuly 2023
Find out if a shuttle to car rental part. Ask for a clean car. Watch all the upselling attempts. Gas goes far in Calgary.
Verified travelerJune 2023
Driving in calgary is nice but the different style of intersections compared to ontario made it a little bit confusing

Roads are horrible but make sure to follow the speed limits as there are plenty of speed cameras

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.

Figure out parking options and their prices ahead of the travel. Part of the stay not the rental car price though.

Driving in Calgary is fine. Busy but traffic moves and signage is good.

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.

Full size SUV is not a ford edge similar to high lander.

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.
