Calgary Airport Car Rental

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!

Popular one-way rentals

  • Vancouver (990 km / 615 mi). It’s a long drive to the largest city of the neighboring British Columbia province, but the trip is very much worth it. One of the best places to live in North America according to many surveys, Vancouver is also a fascinating city full of cultural things to see and outdoor activities to try.
  • Edmonton (288 km / 179 mi). The capital of the Alberta province (in which Calgary is also located), Edmonton is the northernmost large city of Canada. Although mainly known as a center of the oil industry, it also has plenty for a tourist to enjoy like the Art Gallery of Alberta and TELUS World of Science Museum.
  • Saskatoon (579 km / 360 mi). The largest city of Saskatchewan province, Saskatoon is flying under the radar of most visitors of Canada. Those who do venture to the city in the Canadian prairies are rewarded with unique little museums and beautiful walks of the Meewasin Trail that runs along the city of the same name.
  • Seattle (1,147 km / 713 mi). The largest city in the state of Washington, Seattle is the home of Jimi Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and many other world-famous bands and musicians. This legacy and the creative spirit of the city continues to live on in its museums, cultural centers, and performance venues. To travel from Canada to the United States, you’ll have to cross an international border, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it.
  • Winnipeg (1,333 km / 828 mi). Often called the cultural capital of the Prairies, Winnipeg is one of the most sophisticated cities in Canada. It is home to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Graffiti Gallery, and Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Center, as well as the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Airforce Heritage Museum.
  • Lethbridge (224 km / 140 mi). The third most-populous city of Alberta, Lethbridge doesn’t have the same tourist pull as Calgary and Edmonton. What it lacks in size, however, it more than makes up for with small town hospitality, historic sites, a large Japanese garden, and proximity to Waterton Lakes National Park.
