Calgary Car Rental Mini Guide

Calgary car rentals are extremely popular with customers who go to Canada to enjoy its world class skiing. The city makes an ideal base for a ski holiday as you can drive to the Rocky Mountain range in around an hour and a half. There you can find some amazing mountain resorts, many of which have a reputation for being wonderful eco-tourism destinations. When prebooking your rental car online you do have the option to add on snow tyres and chains to make your journey to the Rocky Maintains a lot safer.

Calgary Airport is 17km northeast of downtown Calgary. It serves over sixty destinations including Germany, UK, France, USA, and the UAE. Car rental from Calgary Airport can also be prebooked online with Rhino Car Hire.
