KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fredericton

  • Hire a car for your visit to Fredericton and take the opportunity to spend time driving around both the city and the surrounding countryside, visiting charming towns such as Harvey; it’s about a 45min drive north of Fredericton, which is the home to Canada’s oldest woollen mill. Drive roughly 2 hours north of the town in your Fredericton hire car and you’ll be at Grand Falls, a majestic waterfall that drops around 23 metres into the gorge below.
  • Fredericton International Airport (YFC) has several car hire companies situated within the terminal buildings. You can find the desks for car hire in Fredericton, like Enterprise and National, just to the left of the luggage reclaim area. When you arrive at the airport, go to the car hire company desk with the relevant paperwork; you’ll be given the keys to your hire car, which will be parked in the hire car park within walking distance of the terminal.
  • When considering Fredericton car hire, you’ll be pleased to know that, in general, the streets are wide and the lanes well marked. Traffic lights hang above the road junctions, as do street names, and this could take a bit of getting used to. There are plentiful pedestrian crossings throughout downtown Fredericton; people do sometimes cross in other places but this seldom happens.
  • While traffic in Fredericton is less congested than in larger towns in Canada, it does tend to get busier during the commuter rush hours, in the early morning and evening during the week. In the morning, the busier hours tend to be between 07:30 and 09:00 and then again in the afternoons between 16:00 and 17:30. During school terms, the traffic around schools will be busier during morning drop-off between 07:30 and 08:00 and afternoon pick-up at around 15:00.
  • Book your car hire in Fredericton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Fredericton are around 8% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

    When considering car hire in Fredericton, think about where you would like to drive. If you want to stay within the city, look at the category of compact economy cars, as these will be easy to manoeuvre into parking spaces and it will also be easier to navigate around the streets in town. For driving outside the city, why not consider a more comfortable option for longer distances, such as an SUV or a luxury sedan? These will provide more room for both passengers and luggage.

  • What’s the speed limit in Fredericton?

    When driving within the Fredericton city centre, speed limits will vary depending on the zone. The general speed limit is 50 km/h within the town, and this will drop to 30 km/h in school zones. These speed-limit changes will be indicated with signs, so keep your eyes open; they are white rectangles or squares, generally with black writing. The police in Fredericton are active with speeding fines around these areas. On the provincial streets around the city, the speed limit increases to 80 km/h unless otherwise shown. The speed limit on the highways near Fredericton is 110 km/h. When you are collecting your hire car in Fredericton, it is advisable to ask the customer service agent for information about this.

  • Where are the best places to park in Fredericton?

    Parking is something to consider before you book car hire in Fredericton. There are both on-street metered parking and parking garages in Fredericton. The parking garages using pay stations generally charge C$ 1.00 (around A$ 1.10) per hour, while the car parks with single metered parking spaces charge about C$ 1.75 (around A$ 2.00) per hour. There are some parking garages, such as the East End Parking Garage, that are open 24/7, and others that are open from 08:00 until 17:00. Fredericton is also introducing a pay-by-plate system for parking, where you simply enter your vehicle registration at the pay station and pay with a credit or debit card. With this option, you won’t need to display your parking receipt.

Thanks for refunding our insurance and not charging us for the rental car because we never got our holiday of our dreams and Air Canada cancelled our connecting flight to New Brunswick after flying to Montreal.

The vehicle was great but when i got there, the hertz rep charged me extra for winter tires because they were still on the vehicle, made the argument my rental was only for 12pm when i had an email that pickup was at 9am and charged me an extra 750$ which when i asked where the charges came from and explained to me, made no sense. Very disappointed

Cons:

There was a 3-hour delay in my pick-up time. However, they more than made up for it with a discounted rate and an upgrade on my rental.
