Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Calgary Avis rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my vehicle in Calgary?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Calgary's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Calgary is 21. Take time to review Avis's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Calgary?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Calgary. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Calgary getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Canada require car insurance?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Calgary. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Calgary. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Calgary?
Calgary certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Calgary.
Does Calgary Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
