What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Calgary Routes rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Calgary?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Calgary?
Most suppliers in Calgary require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to check Routes's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Calgary?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Calgary. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Calgary getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Canada require car insurance?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Routes require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Routes requires a deposit when you book your rental. Routes will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Calgary. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Routes rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Routes rental with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Routes. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Calgary definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Calgary.
Does Calgary Routes offer one-way car rentals?
Routes typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Routes. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
