Car Rental

by OleRe

Hey everyone,

I have a quite intricate problem: I need to reenter the country for a working permit to become effective.
The plan was to rent a car and drive for a few days to Montana and then back into Canada. When I tried to rent the car today, however, I found out that most rental companys require the renter to have a drivers license and a credit card. I have a driver license, but I don't have a credit card. My girlfriend (who is coming along) has a credit card, but no drivers license. It seems to be not possible to rent a car with this setup, I have tried Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, Budget and some smaller ones. Does anyone know a car rental where one can have different names for driver and credit card holder?

If this is not possible, I was looking at ways to get to Montana without a car. Greyhound only seems to offer routes to Hotsprings going over Vancouver and Seattle, which of course does not make any sense. Are there other coach companys that offer rides directly from Calgary to Montana? Do you have any other idea how I could do this?

Regards
Ole

Ask them about their cash policy. Often they will want a large deposit which you get back when you return the car.

Have you looked at flights? Calgary looks like quite a busy airport with plenty of carriers to the US.

Otherwise you could consider finding out what local buses will take you to one of the border crossings and just walk across, get your passport stamped and walk back and get the bus again.

There's always a way to get from A to B and back again without driving.

Good luck!

Check out my Waterton lakes National Park page for some info on how to get from Calgary to Montana without a rental car. It's possible, but can be either pricey or a hassle.

I believe you can also fly from Calgary to Kalispell or Billings; you might want to investigate that further too. Basically, you have to fly from Calgary to either Seattle or Denver first, then catch a smaller plan to take you to Kalispell.

Calgary has the second or third most busiest airport in Canada. To fly down to Montana, you'll have to transfer in Denver or Seattle so it's probably more trouble than it's worth.

Have you thought about just taking the bus to Spokane? I think it's about 8 hours, and closer than Seattle. Do you have to go to Montana for your work permit? Have you thought about just flying into Seattle? sometimes bus tickets are quite expensive and you wouldn't save much money taking the bus.

Does it have to be to Montana? One person can fly to Las Vegas on Oct 27 and back to Calgary on Oct 28th for $350 Cdn (WestJet, just looked it up). Might the cheapest way to go.

we had this situation in Dallas and used Thrifty car rental and managed to get a car, so maybe try them here in Calgary. Also you can get yourself a credit card-debit card through most banks. It looks like a credit card with the Visa or Mastercard symbols and is accepted as a credit card, but you do need to have the money in the bank, as it works like a debit card (takes the money out instantly).

Have my kids on this as a stepping stone into a real credit card world, as I didn't want them out there earning debt without understanding the consequences. This way they can make purchases where ever mastercard is accepted.

It depends upon your budget. If you have deep pockets I might suggest taking a limo. There is an excellent company in Calgary. There website is www.CollinsLimo.com . Hope that helps.

Travel Tips for Calgary

Treasure Chest=money in your pocket....

by cybercutie

Every year in Calgary people sell a treasure chest book, which is about 600 pages of coupons of everything from ski waxing, to pedicures, to free meals, to hotels in Banff...guaranteed you will find a Calgarian who either has one or knows someone who does. These books are $40, but no one uses all the coupons in there, especially the ones catered to tourists, so if you have some connections, you can get a hold of one of these babies and save a pretty penny...most people would be glad to give you the coupons to hotels in Banff or Gondola rides...turst me, these books are huge...

My friends and I used a coupon for a hotel in Banff one time, and ended up spending $13 Canadian a night for a hotel right by the main strip...it paid for itself right there...

As well, it has coupons for fast food to casual to elegant dining, and it is always buy one entree, get one free...

so, if you are coming this way, and you aren't a Carney or have a mullet, I can make sure to hook you up with a coupon or two (first ones free, then once you are hooked it gets pricey)...:)

Designed by Children for Children

by penumbra

It’s not a tourist attraction, but if you’re driving along Shaganappi Trail and see a building that looks like it might be an amusement park constructed with giant children’s blocks, then you’ve come across the new Alberta’s Children’s Hospital . Originally, the architects proposed a standard brick building, but when the kids were allowed to make some revisions, the building took on a more interesting style. The novel design is intended to reduce stress and promote healing. I know it works for me. Even after watching the building being built for several years I can’t help but smile when I drive by.

Shaking hands Calgary Style

by scottishvisitor

We found this comical and nearly life sized statue on 8th. Avenue. Caricature in appearance and a bit out of body shape it depicts two elderly gentlemen shaking hands - I have search the web but still can't find any information on its history. It probably has none and is just a fun statue of two old bankers shaking hands on a closed deal. If I'm wrong feel free to tell me!!

Packing List

by juniperjune

Ok, if you are going during the Calgary Stampede, I pitty you! It always rains! The weather is nice before and after, rarely during.
You can expect any type of weather in Calgary. Because you are so close to the Mountains, the weather is WEIRD! It snowed in August one year when I was there! The summer nights are crisp, as it is very dry and no humidity to keep the moisture in the air. The summer days are not as hot as the more humid climates in Canada. It did not seem as hot as Montreal :( The wind is a bit stronger, go further south, and it gets pretty strong.
In the winter, we get Chinooks. This is warm air that comes in from the Mountains. Look south, and you will see an arc forming on the horizon. The warm air pushes up the clouds. It can snow at 6 am, and be 15 degrees C by the time you come home from work.

Bust a Session

by penumbra

Shaw Millennium Park is one of the largest outdoor skateparks in the world and it’s free. Although largely concrete, it is surrounded by grass and trees to give it a more park-like atmosphere. The park provides different areas so that novice through to expert can be challenged and enjoy the facility.
