Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Calgary Airport! Then drive into the city. The best way to get a feel for the local vibe is to take a leisurely stroll down Stephen Avenue, with its countless cafés, shops, and art centers. Next, drive to Calgary Tower to enjoy the great views of Alberta and dine in the Sky 360 restaurant.

If you’re visiting Calgary in the summer, drive your rental to the nearby Glenmore Reservoir where you can sail, kayak, and canoe. If you’re there in the winter, drive to the Canada Olympic Park—home to the 1988 Winter Olympics—to hit the slopes. Back in the city, take a walk in beautiful Prince’s Island Park and visit the Calgary Farmers’ Market or Eau Claire Market.

Calgary’s a great destination, but why not stay longer and see more? With a longer term car rental deal you can explore beautiful Alberta, head to Vancouver and the Pacific Coast, or cross the border into Montana and Idaho. You can even pick up your rental car at Vancouver Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure today!
