Don't forget, like with any city, Calgary rental cars are booked up quickly for long weekends. Occasions such as Calgary Stampede, major business events and during the summer months. So to avoid disappointment it's best to arrange your rental in advance.

Once you've decided which rental car company to use the next step is filling in the paperwork.

Due to the number of fake driver licenses and other fraudulent activity, not just in Calgary but worldwide, don't be surprised if your driver's license is scrutinized carefully. Especially if you're from out of town.

If there are two of you renting the car with one person driving and the other person paying, you may find that the person paying also needs to be included as a driver else you might not be allowed to rent the car.

It's something that a few car rental companies are doing nowadays. If you include the person paying as a secondary driver then any extra charge is relatively small. When you're renting your car, you may be asked if you're planning to head out to the mountains. It's best to be honest as the rental company can fit the rental car out with special equipment such as tires suitable for mountain driving. They can also put other SUV safety equipment in the car like winter gear, just in case!

What kind of driving experience did you have?

Have a few tips and instructions for people who are using maps. Figuring out how to find something can be daunting at times and any added info can be a treasure.

If you got it, maybe someone else needs it. Please enter a paragraph or two to show how you did it, how you found it, how you got there.

Some parts of Calgary can be quite confusing and any help will be welcomed.

Thank you.

Which Calgary rental cars company you choose is usually either a personal preference for a name or a matter of cost. If it's your first time that you're planning to rent, then a word of advice. Check out the insurance which comes with the car and compare with the insurance required in the part of the country you're visiting - and make sure that you're covered.

It's those hidden costs that really push up the price of what you thought was a good deal to begin with. Go back from Calgary Rental Cars to the Calgary Street Maps web page, or navigate back the Calgary home page.
