Calgary

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.

Calgary favorites

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.

Stephen Avenue

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.

Prince's Island Park

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.

Calgary Tower

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.

Jason and Amanda were incredibly welcoming and kind! We had to have some flexibility on both ends for pickup/drop-off and they were incredibly easy to work with. Would absolutely recommend renting this car (ps- great on gas!) and would rent from Jason and Amanda again if I come back to Calgary.

It was super simple working with Jason. Little Fernie the Ford was so reliable and did well driving out to Banff and Drumheller. We told them that we were going to Banff and they left us their park pass! Super kind people and would 100% rent from them again!

It is the perfect fit for all occasions. Really comfortable and super clean. Runs very smooth and charging cables provided by the host as well.
