ONE WAY CAR RENTALS

If you are planning a two country holiday you could run into difficulties renting a car one way between Montana USA and Alberta Canada. The trip sounds great combining Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park in the United States with the Waterton, Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada. The logistics can be difficult.

ONE WAY car rentals are usually difficult to obtain between Montana USA and Alberta Canada. One way rentals may work between major USA and Canadian Cities but usually not between Montana and Alberta!

Car companies can rent cars in their respective countries from other states or provinces but they usually can not rent cars from another country for service in their own country. The car can sit (with lost of revenue) until someone wants to rent it back to the other country.

Airport Shuttle Express of Calgary Canada can connect the car companies. We can take you TO Montana from Alberta Canada or pick you up FROM Montana and take you to Alberta Canada. We offer private ‘charter” service in sedans, vans and SUVs. For details on the Montana USA TO Alberta Canada OR Alberta Canada TO Montana USA please click here!

For attractions and things to do in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper Alberta Canada Click here. For sightseeing tours from the Calgary Alberta area to the Canadian Rockies please click here!

Spring, summer, fall trips are usually more enjoyable when you “plan ahead”! Spend some time in planning your holiday as accommodation, transportation and even parking (i.e. Banff, Lake Louise Glacier Park Montana area) can be difficult to obtain!

RETURN CAR RENTALS

You can usually rent a car in Canada or the United States and return the same car back to where you started the rental. Just tell the car company what you are doing so they can arrange the necessary trans border paperwork. You can usually save yourself some money if you rent a car from an “off airport” location, even if you bring it back to the airport. i.e.

Calgary – In Calgary the non airport pickup could be cheaper. i.e. One of the major companies: 18 Aug. 2019, one week full size car, unlimited mileage. Airport CAD559.53 at counter; CAD$494.99 pre booked. Non airport CAD412.77 at counter; CAD$373.13 pre booked. Plus all the taxes, insurance etc which will be added! These rates are the basic ones, before any discounts! The Canadian Dollar is about 25 – 30% LESS than the US Dollar. (checked 04 June 2019).
