Below are our top recommendations if you want to bag the best price on a rental car:
After a vehicle with a slightly more spacious interior than a compact rental and with fantastic gas mileage? Slide behind the wheel of an intermediate car. It has all the perks and features of a smaller ride, but with more luggage space and room to fit four to five adults. Drive through the streets of Calgary and Edmonton in style and comfort without putting a dent in your vacation budget. You'll also be able to park your wheels like an absolute pro!
It's always a great idea to take time out from the city, and if you do, get set to be richly rewarded. With mountains, foothills, and rivers to enjoy, Alberta is ripe for exciting adventures. A bigger vehicle like an SUV or a four-wheel drive will give you and your passengers more room for those longer drives.
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're about to embark on an epic road trip around Alberta, a comfortable SUV could be the best solution. If you're hoping for the best possible price and plan to stick to city driving, a budget compact is a smart pick. All you have to do is choose what will suit you best, pack up the car, and hit the highway.
