Discover Car Hire in Calgary
Begin your self-drive holiday by collecting your rental car at the Calgary International Airport, which is located only 20 minutes from the city centre. Calgary’s young spirit is never more evident than in the vibrant, loud and colourful Calgary Stampede which is a rodeo, carnival and street party all rolled into one, attracting over 1 million visitors to the city annually. With a city vibe, Calgary also has a cowboy edge, and you can see all the sights in the area with the ease and comfort that comes with your rental car. We also have convenient downtown locations available for those who are not arriving via Calgary Airport.

A relatively young city, Calgary has certainly come along in leaps and bounds. Downtown Calgary is dressed by Skyscrapers which stem from the pioneer roots of the city, built by rail workers, oilmen and ranchers a century ago. Home of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games, Calgary is also often regarded as the gateway to the ski resorts of Banff and Jasper, as well as the wild prairies that surround it.
Located approximately 20 minutes drive from the heart of the city, Heritage Park Historical Village is a history enthusiast paradise, with more than 200 exhibits and attractions spread over lush parklands. Learn historical facts about Western Canadian settlements and embark on an adventure of discovery and fun and explore Canada Olympic Park, previously home to the 1988 Winter Olympics. Test your skill at activities such as skiing, snowboarding, hockey, skating, bobsledding and mountain biking, depending on the season. It’s only approximately a 20 minutes drive from the city in your comfortable rental car!
