In the south of the province of Alberta, on the banks of the Bow River, sits Calgary, which is the largest city in the province. Calgary is a diverse, multicultural town and is home to the third largest ballet company in Canada.
Hiring a car in Calgary means you can travel across the city and visit areas like SoDO (south of downtown) where you can find many art galleries and artists' collectives such as United Congress. The city also hosts international film festivals, and music festivals - all of which are highlights of any calendar year.
Visiting Calgary gives tourists the opportunity to not only see what the city has to offer but car hire in Calgary allows you to travel outside of the city and see the rest of Canada. The city is close to the Canadian Rockies, the portion of the Rocky Mountains that lie in Canada, and those looking for spectacular views should definitely hike up one of the peaks.
In the city itself, the Glenbow Museum is definitely worth visiting. The museum is one of the largest in Canada and home to some very impressive collections. Hiring a car in Calgary means you can travel downtown and visit it opposite the Calgary Tower.
A short drive away, and perfect for anyone looking for a day trip is Edmonton. Edmonton has a host of brilliant things to see and do, including the Francis Winspear Centre for Music which has been described as a concert hall that is acoustically perfect, making it a 'must hear' for any music lovers.
Elsewhere throughout the year, Edmonton plays host to a number of excellent festivals including the Edmonton International Street Performer's Festival. In fact, the number of festivals that it hosts has earned it the nickname of Festival City.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
