What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best deals on a Banff Dollar rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But booking well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Banff?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Banff's minimum age to rent a car?
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Banff is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Dollar's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Dollar rental car should I get for my trip to Banff?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Banff. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Banff trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Banff. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Banff. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Dollar. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Banff definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Banff.
Does Banff Dollar offer one-way car rentals?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different Dollar. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
