Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Alberta?

If you're planning a road trip in Alberta, a car rental is the best way to get around. Car rental companies will usually offer discounts on rental prices if you rent for multiple days consecutively, ensuring that you get a cheap car rental in Alberta. If you're going to be staying in just one area of the province, public transit may be an option to save money, but if you want to see as much of Alberta as possible, then cheap rental cars in Alberta are the best option.


Alberta car rental information

Driving conditions in Alberta are ideal, even for first timers. If you're driving into the province from Montana, driving across the border is quick and easy. Alberta highways are not too busy, and signage is clear. Construction work is minimal along roadways and rarely causes long backups. Drive-by-wire technology has been introduced in Alberta, and the province is now among the first in North America with this technology. Across most of Alberta, you'll also find an additional lane that's dedicated as a passing lane for vehicles going faster than the speed limit, which makes it that much easier to pass slower traffic, if necessary. When you’re booking a car rental, you can choose the vehicle type depending on the season. In the summer months, you'll want a vehicle that's not prone to overheating in hot weather, whereas, in winter, you want a vehicle with good traction, since wintry weather can mean snow storms and icy roads.

If you're over 18, have a valid driver’s license from your country of residence, and are legally allowed to drive rental vehicles in your home country, then it's usually as simple as providing your driver’s license upon rental and you'll be on your way. Other notable traffic laws you should be aware of include not passing on the right, no left turns or u-turns between certain hours, and a ban on texting while driving. In Alberta, and all of Canada, you drive on the right side of the road.

The basic rental documents required for a rental are a valid driver’s license and major credit card. For those traveling from a country outside of Canada, an International Driver's License and passport may also be necessary to rent a car in Alberta. Some rental car companies will rent to drivers as young as 18 years of age, but rental rates for those under 25 may be steeper. There are also some car rental agencies that offer additional rental protection insurance to their clients, which acts as both rental car insurance and collision damage waiver (CDW) in one package. Other companies may have rental car coverage, but will require you to buy your own rental insurance separately.
