Calgary airport Q&A
Where are the car hire desks?
Because hiring a car is the most tourist-friendly method of transport, it’s incredibly popular and to meet demand, the airport has located its Calgary Rental Car Centre outside the main terminal. Follow the signs from the arrivals hall.
What should I buy at duty free?
Calgary is famous for the annual Stampede, the world’s largest rodeo and Wild West events show. You won’t be able to pick up a bull, or even a cowboy at duty free, but you could get an authentic cowboy hat or lasso as a souvenir of your trip.
Are there any cashpoints?
Cash machines dispensing both Canadian and US Dollars are available at the airport, as are banks for currency change
Where's the best place to eat?
If you’re feeling peckish before your flight, head to the Whopper Bar for a last taste of Canadian beef. Here, you can build your own burger from a very generous selection of toppings including bacon, guacamole and if your taste-buds can take it, jalapeno peppers.
The secret tip
Photo radar technology is used widely in Canada so don’t be tempted to speed, talk on your mobile or drive without your seatbelt - you could receive a fine through the post weeks after you get home. However, there are currently no laws against bad or enthusiastic singing in our car rentals in Calgary - so go for it.
Calgary airport the gateway to...
Banff National Park
Distance: 74 miles
Banff is the picture perfect representation of how most of us imagine Canada to be - craggy, snow-topped mountains, glaciers, lakes that look like glass, pine trees, eagles and bears. Take your camera, but as spellbinding as the views might be, try and remember to return to the airport in time for your flight home.
Distance: 11 miles
If Banff is the pinnacle of Canadian landscapes, then Fort Calgary is the place to be for a glimpse of that other Canadian legend - the Mountie. This site marks the birthplace of the infamous, red-coated, horse riding police force and you can visit today to learn some of their history, try on the uniform or, if you’ve been naughty, sit in one of their jails.
Distance: 85 miles
At this glacial lake, the largest in the Canadian Rockies, you can take boat tours, cycle or walk around the perimeter, or if you have the courage, take a scuba dive to the submerged village that has sat beneath the icy waters since 1941. You can park your hire car in any of the marked parking places along the lakes edge.
