VIA Rail Station -> Edmonton Intl Airport

by themightylion

We are travelling by train from Vancouver and need to get from the rail station to Edmonton Intl airport to pick our rental car up. Does anyone have any advice as the best route, with our luggage, to get to the airport?

Many Thanks, Michael

Rent from a downtown office or there is a shuttle from the Hotel Macdonald (above train station) $15.00/p. Taxi owuld be about $35 plus tip

Wow!! Is there any way you can change the location where you pick up your rental vehicle?? The railway station is in an out-of-the-way section of the city (in the northwest) in an industrial area, so first you'd have to take a taxi downtown, and then take the shuttle bus to the airport.
I would recommend phoning the rental agency and explaining your plight - they may be able to suggest a closer location than the airport (or they may indeed have car rentals at the railway station itself).

Good luck!!

The train station at 12360 - 121 St. is very close to the municipal airport. Arrange to pick up your car there - just hop into a cab - it will be less than $10.

If you are going with "budget" you can pre arrange to pick it up at the Esso on the West side of the airport.

Otherwise, arrange to pick it up anywhere downtown. The trip to the international airport will run you $45 plus tip and is a total waste.

Damn, I miss the Muni as an airport.

by Camping_Girl

Yes, the International Airport is actually south of Edmonton - outside city limits! The municipal is the original airport - and is downtown. Much better to arrange your rental from the municipal.

Thank you all, the rental is with Hertz and we booked it some time ago before we thought of getting the train from Vancouver to Edmonton. So is it the case that the train isn't by this MacDonald Hotel anymore as the shuttle from there would have been a result? Otherwise I think it'll have to be a taxi.

RE: RE: VIA Rail Station -> Edmonton Intl Airport

by Camping_Girl

Have you tried contacting Hertz to see if you can switch your pickup location to the municipal airport or a downtown location? I can't believe that they wouldn't do this, provided they have a similar vehicle available at the closer location. I have always found Hertz to have great customer service. If you need a phone #, I'm sure I can locate one for you.

RE: RE: VIA Rail Station -> Edmonton Intl Airport

by themightylion

Hertz at the city centre require that you are flying in into one of three terminals as they only staff the desk for your arrival. They have points at the rail station itself and downtown but these all close before we arrive at 5.30pm which is totally useless, you would have thought that having the Canadian coming in from Vancouver that would have the desk open until 6pm but they shut at 4pm! So I'm stuck with getting from the station to the International airport. Thanks again for all your help.

Discover Nature at John Janzen Nature Centre

by keida84

For $1.75 Canadian, a tour of the John Janzen Nature Centre is a nice place to take the family, especially if you have young children.

Down in the River Valley Park System, the Centre offers exhibits such as the Life of a Honey Bee and programs such as Backyard Composting.

Season permitting, you can hike the self-guiding nature trails: The Birch Tree Trail and the River Loop Trail or watch the ducks and birds at the Prairie Pond.

Located near Fort Edmonton Park, Fox Drive and Whitemud Drive.

Cheap CDs & DVDs

by VTShounen about a&b Sound

Home entertainment systems, car audio systems, etc on the lower level, CDs, videos, DVDs books on upper level. Edmonton is a great place to load up on (real, non-pirated) CDs and DVDs. Not to play favourites, but I love a&b Sound. That and later Future Shop (both Vancouver based retail chains) are known for their low price CDs and DVDs, especially when they have a sale on. Although you can find these stores throughout Western Canada, in Alberta there is NO PROVINCIAL SALES TAX! Rarely have I gone to a&b sound and paid more than $15 for a CD that I want.

West Edmonton Mall

by VTShounen about West Edmonton Mall

It's where you'll likely be spending most of your time in Edmonton anyway! Lots of choices, all indoors, away from the weather. Popular entertainment choices include cinemas (especially Silver City in Phase IV), Playdium, Red's (large entertainment centre for families during the day, at night catering to the younger crowd, with bowling, pool, arcade, dance floor, occasional live band, restaurant, bar), and the various night clubs (Rum Jungle - though everyone I know HATE the DJ there, The Joint, Juice, Nashville). There is also a casino, a dinner theatre (Jubilations) and many restaurants that are open after all the stores are closed. Depends on where you go, but nothing in particular worth noting.
