Start your morning right with a coffee or jog along the Bow River and you’ll have plenty of energy to explore this up-and-coming city. With the Rocky Mountains next door, Calgary is an urban hub with craft breweries, local festivals, an evolving culinary scene, and the renowned Calgary Stampede.
Hit the town and wander through the lively inner-city neighborhoods, then book your Calgary car rental alternative for the rich natural wilderness just outside the city limits.
Savor the open prairie skies in Calgary, pop into a few local attractions, then treat yourself to a main course with Alberta’s renowned grass-fed beef.
Lined with local shops, historic buildings and pubs with sidewalk seating, wander down Stephen Ave and check out the hot spots along the way like the Glenbow Museum or Olympic Plaza.
Situated in the heart of downtown, pack a picnic basket and a blanket for a laid-back afternoon at this popular park complete with Canadian geese, the River Cafe, flower gardens, and playgrounds.
Head to Cowtown’s iconic landmark for a bird’s-eye view of the bustling streets below as you brave standing on the glass floor. For a special treat, dine at the revolving restaurant for 360-degree views.
For dinosaur fans, head 90 minutes northeast for a day trip spent roaming around the prehistoric landscape known as the Badlands. Check out the Royal Tyrrell Museum and gaze in awe at the protruding hoodoos.
A quick one-hour jaunt away, get a feel for Cochrane’s small-town atmosphere and roll through the historic main street. Be sure to stop at MacKay’s Ice Cream parlor before leaving.
One of the most popular getaways for Calgarians and visitors alike, head to the picturesque mountain town of Banff before or after your hiking, skiing, mountain biking, or canoeing adventure.
I absolutely recommend Nick's cars to anyone looking for reliable and clean cars. Nick is a great person, ready to support in all matters, even if it does not concern his cars. I am grateful that he helped me for the first time days in Calgary and I am sure that I have found a new friend in Calgary. I put 5 stars, but he deserves more, since 5 stars are very few for him! Thanks Nick!
My go-to superhost in Calgary. Dami is always so accommodating and always makes sure the guests have a good experience. Car is always of great quality, and is exactly as described (whether it’s the luxury or budget car!). Would definitely recommend!
This was a booking I had done after a while. It worked out great. John is amazing. Very helpful to make your trip, transaction as comfortable as possible. He is prompt in responses. This is my first time renting out Tesla Model S. The vehicle was excellent. Didn’t experience any issues. I didn’t go over 600 kilometers. The charging worked as expected. John was very kind to give me a quick demo before I rented the car. Look forward to renting it again from John. I highly recommend him.
Best car rental experience I have ever had! Would definitely rent again! Thanks again!
I rent Christine’s car to commute to work at Banff, and it was a really cool experience driving stick. The car worked well, and it was fuel economy. Christine is a very friendly and helpful host, she went out and had a short talk with me about the vehicle. I recommend this vehicle! Thanks Christine!
Excellent car for a Ski Road trip, very solid drive and easy collection and drop off. Would certainly use again!
Zhe was friendly, very helpful and quick to reply when I had a question. Would definitely rent one of his cars again when I’m back in Calgary.
Great car, rode very nicely and good in winter. Host was very accommodating with trip changes
The car was in really good condition and ran smoothly throughout the trip. Appreciate the response from the host to all small questions I had. Will definitely book from him again.
Graziella was so easy to communicate with and her car got my group to and from Banff with such ease! Since my flight leaving Calgary was really early in the morning, I decided to have the car rental only until the day before departing. Instead of taking the car all the way back to YYC (option chosen when booking this trip), Graziella was flexible enough to allow us to meet elsewhere and drove us back to our destination for the afternoon! Highly recommend and would love to use again when I’m back :)
Emmanuel was very responsive and helped me through my first Turo car rental. The car was clean and helped my whole trip run smoothly!
Zhe was so easy to deal with! He made the car rental process very convenient for me and I would rent from him again! Thanks again!
This was my first time using turbo and I got to say I had a great experience. Zhe explained everything from the get go and any questions I had, he response quickly. If you are in the Calgary area and in need of a car rental dont hesitate in renting from him.
Good car and it drives nice. Just be aware it has significant hail damage. But if you don’t mind the aesthetics, it’s good
This was a last minute pick up and the host was extremely nice and flexible with his time, I will definitely be renting from him again and would definitely recommend,
The car was well maintained. Had no issues especiakly given its the worst period of winter winter, the car drove well!
Gordon's car is nice and modern. Gordon himself is communicative and the whole process is easy and simple.
Great car, really economic for tourism ! The Host was really kind and answers quick. I definitely recommend . :)
Zhe is an amazing car rental guy..I got discount rates for the nice ride. Very greatful
Zhe is flexible and supports all last time changes.Would definitely recommend others to rent a car from Zhe
Booked Jason & Amanda's Ford for a 17-day ski trip through the Rockies & Kootenays. This was our first time using Turo so we weren't sure what to expect. Pickup was smooth, quick, and to-the-point. Amanda answered any questions we had and offered some local advice as well. The car itself was awesome! The studded winter tires were a lifesaver for some of the conditions we encountered along the way. Rental car agencies do NOT offer winter tires on their cars (at least not without a crazy fee), and they're (legally!!!) a necessity for driving mountain passes in the wintertime. Also, little modifications to the car (bluetooth, USB chargers, etc.) were a very nice touch. And the fuel consumption was fantastic as well! Also, the use of a cooler to keep our food from freezing was welcome, and they even included a Parks pass! Any questions we had along the way were answered promptly. Drop-off instructions were clear and the process was simple. We've done ski trips with all kinds of rental cars over the years, and we'll NEVER go back to a rental car agency. Thank you Jason & Amanda for the use of your lovely Focus. Can't wait to drive this car again next year! Mark & Claudia
really good guy to rent a car from, super friendly, very flexible with days and times, good cars with him. I 100% recommend anyone to rent from Zhe!
Jason and Amanda’s Ford Focus was the perfect car for our trip into the Canadian Rockies! We picked it up from their home and they were flexible with our pickup time in the morning (around 09:00) as we were coming from a late night flight and staying a transit ride away. Upon return, Jason drove us to the airport for our early morning flight which was much appreciated! As this was our first time using Turo, you can imagine I had lots of questions. They were flexible and communicative throughout the process, answering all of my questions and accommodating any itinerary changes prior to the visit. Over 7 days we drove the car from Calgary to Banff National Park, all the way up to Jasper town and through Jasper National Park. There were 2 of us and lots of camping gear. While the car was definitely packed, it fit everything we needed it to without being cramped - luggage, tent, sleeping gear, cooler, food, gas stove, the whole shebang. The best perk for us was getting to use the Parks Canada pass with the vehicle. Since we were there for a week, this was a $137 value included and one of the reasons (aside from the otherwise great value) we ultimately decided on this car over others - and were not disappointed! Great experience, would highly recommend renting from Jason for your next excursion in and around Calgary and Alberta!
Very polite man, does excellent business, and I hope everyone has a heart like this man.
Outstanding host! Which responses to questions before during and after the rental period. Very knowledgable and nice person. Car is Amazing reccomed to anyone who wants to experience why everybody loves this car!
This outback handled all types of conditions in AB and BC with ease. It was a pleasure to drive! Olga was very friendly and helpful throughout. I will be looking to book again when I’m out this way again.
Always a great experience with this host and their vehicles. Great quality, value and easy communication.
Great rental. Nick was on time for pickup and return. Car goes really well! Book without hesitation!
Jason was very responsive and personable. The car was a great deal for my needs. Good, solid, clean transportation. Thanks Jason! I'll be renting from you again next trip to Calgary.
The vehicle was excellent , great on gas, very comfortable, Bluetooth speakers, really good winter tires with good brakes and so many features , I felt really safe driving this vehicle. Host was extremely nice and helpful at all times .
Diego was friendly and communicated very well, also accommodating with extra attentions. Highly recommend!
Pickup and drop-off were easy and John was a pleasure to deal with. The vehicle was clean and ready to go. John helped me set up the Tesla app on my phone so that I could use the features that come with it (sending maps from the phone to car, summoning and more), and he went over all the cars features and answered all my questions. It was obvious that John not only loves this car, but that he was excited for me to experience my first Tesla as well. The car was a wonderful drive. The autopilot feature took some getting used to, but I really liked and used it every time I drove. Acceleration, was insane. Definitely not like anything I've driven before and a lot of fun. Mostly it was just my wife and I riding in the vehicle, and we were both comfortable. We even did a grocery trip and there was a ton of storage space (I really like that it's a sedan with a hatch-back). Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a cool rental or to experience their first Tesla!
What a great rental experience with Dennis. He made it super easy to pick up and drop off the car at the airport and his communication was fabulous. The little Suzuki we rented was amazing for our ski trip. With the AWD w/ snow tires, ski racks, and national park pass our trip to the mountains was a breeze. Would definitely recommend Dennis and his car if you are heading to Calgary any time soon.
Great car for a winter trip to Banff with a family of 4. Love the winter tires, which are so hard to find on a rental on Calgary (but are required in BC!) Chris always responded to my messages within minutes. Communication could not have any better!
The car was clean and everything went well. Would recommend renting if you’d re looking for something to get around Calgary that’s cheap on fuel.
Great little hatch! great fuel efficiency and very comfortable to drive. Car was super clean and Joel was a pleasure to deal with. 10/10 would rent again.
Kapila is a cool guy! You can tell he is truly passionate about EV’s and is a great person to rent from. He was always available for questions and thoroughly explained everything about the car before our trip. Highly recommend!
Zhe was very good with pickup and drop off no hassle at all ! Highly recommended
Very nice guy and helpful I will always rent a car from him and I highly recommend people to rent from him
Zhe has been very helpful when we found out that the driver window was broken, he gave us another car so we had the chance to keep going on adventures. Thank you, and I’ll contact you again if I need to rent a car again!
Great vehicle for our mini vacation to Calgary and Banff! Pick up and drop off was super smooth and easy. We had to adjust our drop off time last minute and Emmanuel was very accommodating. The car has a couple minor beauty blemishes but is in perfect working condition. No issues at all during our trip. Would book again.
I rented from zhe multiple times, he is the best host i dealt with in Calgary area.
What can I say... fast booking, great communication, great car. Will rent again. One of the best turo experiences in Calgary for sure.
Car was clean and as expected. Good communication and flexibility! We needed a second vehicle and it was much more reasonably priced and convenient than a rental vehicle in Calgary right now!
This car was perfect for our 5 week stay in Calgary/Banff area! It was great on gas, very warm and did everything we needed it to do. Would definitely rent again. Owners of the car were also very accommodating!
Amazing car!! Will definitely rent it again! One of the best cars I’ve ever ridden. Thank you Jordan!
Super friendly host. Was able to book within a short time. Car was fun to drive and sporty for its size. Pick up and drop off was easy and I would definitely rent again!
This was my first time using Turo and it was a great experience from Calgary Airport. Easy and more affordable than a rental car. Thank you Saqib!
Outstanding handling of our unfortunate situation with Covid-19! Firstly, Jason met up with us at Calgary airport on time and with clear communication even though we’d never been to the airport or even Canada before. The car ran smoothly our entire trip. When we then in semi-panic needed to book a trip home because of closing boarders worldwide, Jason was available to meet up the very next day and even drove us to our hotel by the airport. Huge thanks for the flexibility and we wholeheartedly recommend renting from Jason.
Milan's Outback was in excellent condition and worked out perfectly for our trip though the Canadian Rockies. The car had plenty of cargo space for all our gear, and plenty of power to get up the mountains. The adaptive cruise control was also super convenient when traveling along the single lane on Highway 1. Pick up and drop off was very easy with a location by the airport with shuttle service. Everything about the car and Milan's communication was perfect. We will definitely rent from Milan again when in the Calgary area!
Thank you very much. The experience was great! The car was gas efficient and did everything we needed during our trip. Great service as well! No problem getting and bringing back the vehicle.
terrance was absolutely the best he is an amazing host and anyone would be lucky to rent one of his vehicles.
Zhe was very cooperative and found the best car option that would work best for us. The car Honda Odyssey was excellent with no issues. Easy procedures for check-in/ check out.
Clean, sound vehicle. Diego dropped off and picked up car. Very nice guy. I would consider this vehicle first should I need to rent again
Zhe was awesome to deal with, the car is fantastic. He hooked me up with a ride to the airport too after I returned the car. I'll definitely be in touch again when I'm in the area. Thanks again Zhe!
Great drive rented for over 1 month. Zhe is very reasonable and flexible. This is my second rental with him. Would book with him again when I return to Calgary
Vehicle is pristine. Shayla and her sister are awesome to deal with. Extremely accommodating and the car is impeccably maintained. Highly recommended.
Chris was a terrific host and his Tesla Model S 100D was a highlight of our trip (Calgary-Canmore-Jasper-Columbia Icefield-Lake Louise-Golden-Glacier Park-Banff-Calgary). The car was fun when we wanted it to be and relaxing when we wanted it to be. Auto-pilot made it possible for the driver to take in the sights as well. There were plenty of chargers around and when we woke up, the car would have 500km for us to enjoy. Rent from Chris when you're in Calgary. You won't regret it!
Ricky's car was perfect for our adventure into the Rockies. Modern Toyota, corolla with Bluetooth connection, aux jack, and USB connection. Had no issues driving and only had to fill up twice on our 1,300KM journey. All information about the vehicle provided in the car details is accurate and pictures up to date. Ricky was an amazing car host. Very knowledgeable about Calgary and Banff National Park. Offered useful tips for our trip and went the extra mile to make sure that the car was the least of our worries. Ricky is a very kind and polite person that takes pride in the upkeep and cleanliness of the car. All insurance, tag, and records are up to date and in the glove compartment.
Zhe was great at communicating. Car was as expected, great price. A few tweaks but its a long term fix so was understandable. Would definitely rent again!
Zhe was very friendly and accommodating to extend my trip due to the snow storm. Will definitely use his service again. Car was clean small and nice to drive around lethbridge.
Second time using this host. Never disappointed. Thanks for rental. Will definitely use their services again!
My husband has been excited to drive his future car and this was the best experience! I’m happy to have shared this moment with him. John was great from start to finish. Super attentive and communicative.
Zhe was a great host I would recommend him to anyone visiting Calgary & looking for a rental vehicle for the duration of their stay!!
My wife and I booked Radu's Subaru for our trip in Calgary and visits to Banff, Yoho, and Jasper National Parks in late October. The service from Radu and his wife was great. They were super flexible and easy to communicate with and provided rides to and from the airport when we needed. The Subaru was awesome and I kept taking a picture of it with the background of the Canadian Rockies because it was the perfect car to drive around in the national parks. The car also came with the national parks family pass which was a major reason we chose this rig as it saved us over $100 since we spent over 7 days in the parks. Would highly recommend Radu and this Subaru.
Experience a different side of Alberta’s landscape and head south along Highway 22 for a relaxing drive with plenty of opportunities to pull over to visit the antique shops or small-town eateries.
Known for the area’s mining history and stretching toward the British Columbia border, twist and turn along Highway 3 for breathtaking mountain scenery and captivating southern Alberta towns.
Spanning the entire length of Canada, the highway section in Alberta from Canmore to Lake Louise is especially stunning with glacier landforms, sweeping pine trees, and snow-capped mountain peaks.
