So, how does it work?

Once you've made your booking, we'll email you a booking confirmation. This will include your unique reference number, as well as information regarding where the car hire desk is located (if you're collecting your rental car from Calgary airport (YYC)) or the address of the provider's office if you've chosen an alternative pick-up location.

A bit about insurance

All our Canada car hire agreements include a collision damage waiver. This means that, in the event of your hire car being stolen or damaged, you won't be charged any more than your excess.

Here at Holiday Extras, we make it our mission to make things hassle-free so you can make the very most of your holiday.

  • Cover for any immobilisation, admin and towing charges
  • Free cancellation up to 48 hours before travel

On arrival in Calgary

When you touch down in Canada, picking up your rental car couldn't be more easier. If you've opted to collect it at Calgary Airport (YYC), then, after you've reclaimed your suitcases, make your way to car hire provider's desk within the Arrivals hall. If you're picking your rental car up from an alternative location, make your way to the address listed on your booking confirmation. On arrival, a member of the team will run through the details of the car rental agreement with you. There will a couple of forms to complete before the keys are handed over for the car. They will also remind you of the fuel policy for the car, as well as whether there is any mileage limit for the vehicle.

Please ensure you have the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code
  • A valid passport

Upon your return

When your holiday comes to an end and it's time to fly home from Canada, full details of where to return your Calgary hire car to will be listed on your booking confirmation. When you drop your rental car off, the provider will check it over before you hand over the keys.

Exploring Toronto

If you want to see the city from a bird's-eye view, head to the Calgary Tower. The 62-second trip to the top will send you 190 metres above ground level to take in the spectacular vista. The Calgary Stampede is probably the city's most famous attraction. This is an annual celebration of all things rodeo and it takes place every July. You'll find cattle auctions, wagon races and, of course, rodeo events.

There are also a number of interesting sites in the area around Calgary. If you hire a car, you'll be able to make the one-and-a-half-hour drive to Banff National Park to take in its stunning mountain ranges, lakes, waterfalls and glaciers. History buffs will enjoy a trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. This houses an impressive collection of 30 dinosaur skeletons. If you don't mind making the two-hour journey south, you can visit Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, where aboriginal people used to chase animals over the cliffs for their meat. It's a fascinating destination, and should round off your trip nicely if you have the time.
