Car hire in Calgary
Hiring a car in Calgary
Despite its position as one of the biggest and most popular cities for visitors to come to in Canada, Calgary Calgary is one that stands out from the rest of the country, thanks largely to the unusual reputation it has garnered over the years. With a thirst for business and the booming oil industry, Calgary is often viewed as the most American of all Canadian cities. But while that makes it stand out from the other cities in Canada, this alone is a great reason to visit Calgary.
The city has managed in some ways to shrug off the tired notion that it is a soulless and rather bland business metropolis in recent years, and now, whether you're looking to enjoy the bars and restaurants that make the city what it is, or hit the countryside to enjoy some of the most beautiful sights North America has to offer, you will find something to meet your tastes for sure.
What you need to know
Despite being one of the world's biggest countries in terms of area, Canada is relatively sparsely populated, and has fewer big cities than most nations of similar size. For this reason, it makes sense to hire a car, because nearly everything you will want to see outside the city centre will require a longer drive to get there. It's the reason why most people who visit Calgary will hire a car, making it one of the most popular places in the world for car hire. In addition to the size of Canada, you also have to take into account the less than favourable temperatures in winter, where you'll scarcely want to expose yourself to the elements long enough to walk anywhere.
