Top tips for renting a car in Halifax

  • Halifax is the major economic and cultural hub of Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada. A hire car is the best transport choice as it will provide the scope to enjoy the breathtaking rugged coastline and reach major tourist attractions such as Peggy’s Cove with ease. Halifax has extensive maritime cultural history, which cannot be truly understood without traveling along the jagged coastline roads and stopping by small rural towns such as Duncan’s Cove and Clam Harbour.
  • Halifax Stanfield International Airport is located 35 km (22 miles) from the downtown district and, thanks to the quiet and uncongested roads, will take approximately 40 minutes to reach by car. Major car hire companies such as Alamo, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty, and Budget have counters at Halifax Stanfield International Airport and are located on the lower level of the airport parking area. Once you have picked up your baggage, follow the signage displayed Airport Parkade and you will have the keys in your hand before you know it.
  • Despite being a major industrial hub for Atlantic Canada, Halifax holds on to its small-town culture -- and this is represented on the roads. Pedestrians are always given priority and often cross at random sections of the street. Therefore, keep a careful eye out for pedestrians and cyclists, especially in built-up residential areas or in the downtown district.
  • Driving around Halifax is a peaceful experience; road congestion is a rarity and commuters are known to travel at appropriate speeds and yield. If you plan on traveling west towards the rural community of Peggy’s Cove, take the scenic northern route (103 Highway, then Peggy’s Cove Road) and enjoy the wonderful scenery and lighthouses along the way.
  • Book your rental car in Halifax at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
