Top Tips for Hiring a Van in Calgary

  • Calgary people carrier hire is the ideal way for families and those in large groups to get to their destination. Not only can everyone travel together, but you can also depart and arrive as you please and also go direct, which isn’t always the case with public transport. As Calgary is a popular tourist destination, you’ll find there are lots of attractions to visit, which is made easier in a people carrier. One location you should visit is Bluerock Wildland Provincial Park, which is a stunning park and garden.
  • Calgary Airport (YYC) is close to the centre of the city, making it a great location to pick up your hire car from. There are lots of reputable car hire agencies to pick from, which offer people carrier services, meaning you’ll be on the road in no time at all. At the airport, you will be able to find the car hire companies with ease. For instance, you can reach Thrifty and Hertz via a short shuttle ride. Your Calgary people carrier hire provider will need to see a current driving licence, and for you to fill in some documents, before you’re given the keys to your vehicle.
  • With Calgary people carrier hire, you’ll see the city has lots to offer both tourists and locals. In general, the driving style in this city is relaxed and calm, which is great if you’re driving a new vehicle, such as a people carrier. As jaywalking is not prohibited in this country, you should be wary of people crossing the road in locations that aren’t designated pedestrian crossings. With a larger vehicle, such as a people carrier, you should be aware of your surroundings due to the larger dimensions of the car. One way to do this is to regularly check your mirrors.
  • With a Calgary people carrier hire, you will see the roads can be very congested. This is only enhanced when the locals drive to and from work during rush hour, which is from about 07:00 to 09:30 and 16:30 to 18:30. If you’re not a confident driver, it’s recommended that you do not drive during these times and drive in the late morning or early afternoon instead. One road that gets particularly busy is Motorway 1, which goes through the centre of the city. An alternative road to try would be 20 Ave NW, which should have less traffic on.
  • 25% of our users found a people carrier hire in Calgary for $140 or less
  • Book your people carrier hire in Calgary at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • January is typically the cheapest month to hire a van in Calgary, with prices around $76 per day. The most expensive month is July, with average prices of $250 per day.

FAQs About Hiring a Van in Calgary

  • Where is the best car hire location in Calgary to get a people carrier?

They were able to accomodate a last-minute booking on a busy day. The staff running the car return was friendly and accommodating, especially when I had to return and ask about an item I had forgotten in my rental car. The staff was able to locate and return my item in a timely fashion and were very friendly about the whole ordeal.

Service representative was the least helpful person I've ever had at any rental car company. Pickup document showed full gas tank but was actually one quarter full. Luckily I took a photo before I drove off with the odometer and fuel tank level. When dropping off, told the same rep about the tank and he asked me to take a photo of the odometer and fuel gauge. The representative also had a proper conversation with a prior customer who is likely from the same geographic region as himself but did not provide that same level of service to me. I don't need to be pampered, I'm just saying bare minimum service levels need to be had with everyone. Gave avis a try but won't be renting with avis again after this experience.

First off, communication between the rep and I at pick up from the Calgary terminal went well. Overall the gentleman was accommodating and courteous. However my interaction at the drop-off location didn't go as well. I had planned to drop the vehicle off at 4pm on a Saturday at the McPhillips St location in Winnipeg, MB. I received a call from a Hertz rep from McPhillips stating that their location closes at 4pm however, I could return the rental to the Erin St location as they close a little later and stated to me that there would be no extra charges made to me if I decided to drop it off there instead. 4pm hits and upon arrival at the Erin St location, a rep named Yuting came out as I pulled in to inspect the rental. After a quick inspect, it was claimed that I chipped (small rock chip) the windshield, the windshield that already had a rock chip in it at pick up. I advised Yuting of this and she asked me to email my video/photos from pick up to her for management review and since, I have had received zero communication from Hertz. My credit card was authorized for a specific mount, including a “damage deposit,” that authorization sat on my card for a week until it fell off. Now, instead of charging my card the authorized amount I signed the contract for, they’re charging my card small unauthorized amounts that equal and surpass the original authorized amount I signed for with absolutely no communication with me. I book rentals on a somewhat regular basis but I don't normally book rentals with Hertz, as i normally do with Enterprise and have never had an issue... I will never be a returning customer of Hertz…

Made a booking reservation 20 hours in advance. Once I got there, I was told they aren't accepting any booking reservations made in the last 24 hours. Was stuck in a hotel for 2 days, waiting on a vehicle. Horrible experience, and was still charged for the extra insurance with no way to call someone about it.

The car was excellent and in excellent condition, but there were a lot of hidden fees that the company kept silent about. When choosing a car, the price on the website was $68 for two days, with hidden fees they charged $412 for two days. This is not pleasant, the company must inform customers about hidden fees. I will never go to Budget again because I feel cheated.

My arriving flight was delayed by a few minutes. Then, for no obvious reason, we waited 30 minutes to get our checked luggage. I was 15 minutes past the ‘pickup time’ that I had entered on kayak, and the desk was closed. After a frustrating call to the Budget Call Center, I was told the airport location closed at the exact time I had booked the pickup for, and there was nothing they could do for me. A warning when I booked it and/or a call or text before they closed up for the night would’ve saved me a lot of middle-of-the-night frustration at the airport.

Pickup was very poor. The staff at the front desk were very nice and professional. The problems began when selecting and picking up the car. We were asked to check the condition of a black car in an closed garage with poor lighting. Next to impossible. Then you have to show the problems to an agent who has some sort of screen to look further. About a dozen people were all leaving at once and so it took the better part of an hour from being shown the car to actually leaving the airport. Once we got it out into the light it was obvious we had missed a scratch. Upon dropping off, the process was very fast. However I wasn't given a receipt, and the one promised to my email never came. So now I have to chase it down. The car itself was otherwise fine, and was problem free.

Cons:

I rented a car through kayak only to be told by the vendor on arrival that they were sold out and the online merchant who sold the deal to me neglected to give them any contact so that they could let me know. This was discovered after my ride left leaving me stranded on an unfamiliar road in an unfamiliar city in the cold at 5 PM when essentially everything was shutting down and derailing my plans completely. It looks like you over sold and now are pawning me off on the third party (carrentals.com) for resolution “in a few days.” The reservation was paid in advance for a rental that KAYAK was claiming to guarantee and failed to deliver. On your own website you write “we work hard as the world’s leading travel search engine to get our users the information they need so they can plan trips the way they want, confidently.” In big bold letters no less! What a crock, this was my first experience booking through you and I’ll be sure to tell everyone I know about my experience with KAYAK. Finally I request again you either secure a car so I may complete my delayed travel or refund what I paid. Thank you.

We waited in line for 20 minutes only to be told they had no car for us. They walked us down to Hertz where we waited another 30 minutes in line only to be told we had to wait for a car. We waited 45 minutes. We ended up arriving to our destination over an hour late and missing an important dinner. The car itself was fine, but we will never rent from dollar again - when you add in the list time and missed dinner with colleagues, this was a very expensive rental and one we don’t want to repeat. There was no apology and no explanation - they oversold and did nothing.

Friendly professional desk staff.

Cons:

The car has a slow leak in the right front tire. I wish I'd paid better attention to ensure the care had cruise control. Leaving the parkade on foot involves a trip through a nasty old stairwell and corridor where I thought I might get stabbed. The frost scraper was badly chipped and mostly useless. If pickup/dropoff was an option, I wasn't made aware of it.

Pickup and drop off take a lot of time. It will take an hour from reaching the pickup spot until you have a car. There’s a $1500.00 deposit, which they keep for a week after you return the vehicle. They want to see your insurance for YOUR vehicle (???) as well as the insurance documentation you plan to use, such as credit card. My confirmation clearly stated it was unlimited mileage but it was not. There are fees for driving out of province. Fees for extra driver (that’s not all that’s unusual) This takes way too much time, is misrepresented and there are hidden fees. Also… attitude. I would not recommend this place.

When I brought it up, I was told I had to call in to the website which was closed. It was upsetting ever since we picked up the car. I would not recommend Economy Rent a Car to anyone.

The price is very good, and the staff was friendly. They even called the night before to see what time I landed and asked for my flight info going over what their pickup process was going to be.

Cons:

This company takes a while to pick you up and get you to their offsite location (20-30 min) which is a small room inside a hotel. The car didn’t have enough windshield washing fluid which could have made the trip up the mountains very dangerous if I didn’t catch it while I was still near civilization. They were very picky while checking the condition of the car with me. Had me use my phone flashlight as it was dark out so they could write down ever scratch and chip on the body (and there ended up being a considerable amount) which makes me glad that I took the insurance (who knows if they missed a tiny scratch?) The vehicle was past due on an oil change for over 2,000 km at the time of pick up. My reservation was for a Toyota rav 4 or similar ( I love Toyota’s) and their only options were a dodge pickup truck, or 3 types of kia’s.
