Calgary airport is one of the biggest airports in the region of Alberta.
It is located in the middle of Alberta and serves a huge amount of passengers visiting Canada each year.
We recommend that you book your rental car from home in the price comparison. Plus, the question "When to book?" is always answered, "the sooner the better!" By comparing prices at an early stage, you will find the offer that suits you best and you will be able to find very cheap rental cars.
The most practical option is to rent a car directly at the airport. A big advantage of airport car rental companies is that they have more customer-friendly opening hours. In addition, the car rental stations at the airport usually have ample parking spaces, so that they have a large fleet. If you enter your flight number when booking, the car rental company can withhold your rental car for you in case of delayed arrival due to the flight.
Alberta is well-known for its stunning national parks and nature. The most famous is the Banff National Park which can be reached in about one hour from Calgary airport.
The best way to rent a car for Canada is through the price comparison on Driveboo. The prices are usually much better for early bookings. If you book from home, your rental car is therefore much cheaper for Alberta. You also have more planning security and know in advance where to pick up your rental car. You can also select the vehicle category, such as SUV, convertible or mid-size cars. This way you can make sure that all suitcases fit into the rented car.

Less frequented but well-maintained roads and polite road users encourage people to travel further through the Canadian wilderness. Nevertheless, there are frequent police checks throughout the country. In addition, some regulations differ in the individual provinces. Let the car rental company at the airport inform you about the blood alcohol limits in particular. Otherwise, you will experience impressive holidays, following the following rules:
|Road category||highest speed|
|Inner cities||50 km/h|
|Out of town||80 km/h|
With every vacation, the costs should be able to be planned safely. With a rental car, this is done by choosing the comprehensive insurance without excess. Only this policy settles the damage completely in the event of an accident, while a policy with a deductible contributes to the costs. To avoid unexpected additional costs, experts recommend the fully comprehensive policy without excess when renting a vehicle.
For each rental car, the car rental company requires a deposit, which is blocked on the credit card until the car is returned undamaged at the return station. On our portal, you can see all car rental offers with deposit details. Please leave enough room for the amount.
