Airport Car Rental

Formerly known as the Gateway to the North and now as the Portal to the World, Edmonton is northern Alberta’s largest city and Edmonton Airport is its main gateway. With more than a million people residing in its metro area, the city is lively and vibrant. It has great historic parks and opportunities to experience life outdoors. 

The real draw of the city is that it is a gateway to Alberta as a whole. From it, you can easily reach the Rocky Mountains including Jasper National Park. It is also the beginning of the main route to the Northwest Territories. Noone of these places is possible to visit without a rental car, though.

Luckily, the airport is the perfect place to pick up a rental car. There are companies that are located at the airport and other, low-cost companies that are located a short shuttle ride away. This makes Edmonton Airport the perfect place to being a road trip through Alberta and the rest of northern Canada.

Main airlines

Edmonton airport is a hub for both Swoop and Flair Airlines, both of which are low-cost Canadian carriers. The airport is also the base for Canadian North which flies to the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The airport is also one of WestJet’s focus cities and it has the largest share of passengers at the airport.

Other airlines include Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Delta, Iceland Air, KLM, and United Airlines.

Terminals

There is only one terminal at the airport. It is where both domestic and international flights depart and arrive. The airport is one of the eight airports in Canada with United States Customs and Border Protection Preclearance. This is at one end of the terminal and after clearing this immigration checkpoint, passengers must wait in a secure area. This saves time, though, as passengers do not need to go through immigration nor pick up the baggage and go through customs once arriving in the United States.

Location

The airport is located approximately 30km (19 miles) south of downtown Edmonton just off of Highway 2, a drive that takes roughly 30 minutes.

Car rental desks

The rental desks for those suppliers that operate at the airport are located in the P1 parking garage which is just across the road from baggage claim. The other rental companies are located on the other side of Highway 2 just five to ten minutes away.

Services and facilities

Edmonton Airport has all of the services and facilities that one would expect from an airport its size.

There is a Renaissance Hotel on the grounds of the airport that is directly connected to the check-in area of the terminal. Other hotels at lower price points can be found a short drive away from the airport. Many of them offer free shuttle service, too.

The gates for U.S.-bound flights are separate from the rest of the terminal. The selection of facilities such as restaurants in this area is more limited. There is a duty-free shop on the way to the gates, though. There is also a currency exchange booth.

The airport has three lounges. One is an Air Canada Maple Leaf lounge. The others are Plaza Premium Lounges, one in the main part of the terminal and the other in the area of the US gates.

Nearest gas station

The nearest gas stations to the airport are actually on the grounds of it. A 7-Eleven and an Esso station can be found on Airport Road as you enter the airport. Don’t worry! Unlike in other places, these stations have competitive prices and do not try to gouge renters returning cars.

If you have a Costco membership, you can fill up at the Costco located right off of Airport Road just after you pass highway 2. As usual, Costco has lower prices for gas than nearby stations.
