In the wild west part of Canada you’ll find the modern city Calgary. This city has in recent years become a big metropolis and a great destination to tour by rental car. Located 80 miles from the Rocky Mountains, the city is a popular destination for winter holidays. In 1988 the Winter Olympics were held here.
Explore the area of Calgary by rental car
A rental car is the ideal means of transport to visit the Olympic ice rink and the nearby pristine Rocky Mountains. The typical North American grid-like road network makes navigating the city a breeze. Parking in downtown Calgary can be very pricey, but the city center is easy to explore by foot.
Are you planning to visit one of the beautiful National Parks Jasper, Banff or Lake Louise? Go on Monday, when the highways are deserted. From June to September the mountain lakes have thawed and the water turns a brilliant turquoise and in October you can drive a rental car here with the characteristic yellow and gold autumn colors surrounding you.

We have listed all the frequently asked questions. Is your question not answered? Then do not hesitate to contact us.
1. What equipment does my rental car need during winter?
If you visit Calgary in the winter it is nice to have a vehicle with four-wheel drive. This is however not essential, just front wheel drive will do as well. In addition, we strongly advise anti-lock brakes and snow tires so you can safely enjoy your holiday .
2. What should I keep in mind when driving a rental car in Calgary?
In the city there are mostly one-way streets. So beware that you do not drive into the streets from the wrong side. Summer is the season for maintenance and requires you to lower speeds as you drive along the road. The police is very strict here when it comes to speed limits and parking rules.
3. What is a one way?
With a one way booking you can pick up your car at one rental location and return it at another. For instance pick up your rental car upon arrival at Calgary airport (YYC) and drop it off in Toronto, Halifax, Montreal or a rental location in another city in Canada.
