KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Abbotsford

  • Renting a car in Abbotsford allows you to explore the city and other off-the-beaten path locations nearby at your own pace, without having to depend on public transportation or pay hefty sums for taxis. Hop in the car and visit some of the city’s best attractions, such as Castle Fun Park and Clayburn Village, or head to nearby Langley, which is only 20 miles away and is known for its world-famous wineries.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz, can be found at Abbotsford International Airport (YXX), which is conveniently located about 4.1 km (2.5 miles) southwest of the city center. Car hire services are situated in the baggage claim area of the airport's passenger terminal. If you’re visiting in the winter, make sure to book a car that has A/C.
  • Abbotsford is a fairly easy city to navigate, but remember that traffic signs will be expressed in kilometers rather than miles. If you're driving in the winter, be extra careful as it snows sometimes and roads can get more slippery. In case you’re visiting in August, be aware that the Abbotsford International Airshow attracts plane enthusiasts and crowds from all over Canada and the United States.
  • While traffic in Abbotsford tends to flow nicely throughout the day, there are some routes into and out of the city that get rather packed. Highway 1 from Abbotsford to Vancouver can experience some bumper-to-bumper traffic, especially during rush hour. The route from Chilliwack to Abbotsford can also be pretty congested. Avoid driving between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., especially downtown.
  • Book your car hire in Abbotsford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Abbotsford 
Verified travelerMar 2024
If the rental agency is offering less than $2.00/L, definitely take this deal, as you can bring the car back empty if you so desire and their rates are typically lower than in the city - I paid a rate of $1.65/L from Hertz, and the lowest price I saw in early 2024 was $1.98/L.

Rates are better here than in most other locations in Metro Vancouver.

FAQs about hiring a car in Abbotsford

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Abbotsford?

    If you're just driving within the city limits, a compact car is a good option as it's easy to park downtown. If you're traveling through the region‘s mountains and valleys you may prefer an SUV, but in the summer months a convertible may be a fun option to drive with the top down along the scenic roads. If it’s snowing, a four-wheel drive might be a good option.

    The speed limit within the city is typically 50 kilometers per hour (30 miles per hour), but it can be lower in certain residential areas, in which case signs will be posted.

  • Where are the best places to park in Abbotsford?

    While there are some free street parking spaces available downtown, they’re very desirable, so you’re better off leaving the car nearby and walking to the center.

They called me less than 24 hours before my trip to tell me they cancelled my reservation, leading me to frantically hunt for another vehicle that costed me twice as much. I also had to call and cancel insurance that I was charged for when I first reserved the hertz car. I don't think I should have been charged anything for insurance until I was actually picking up the car.

There are NO vehicles of this description at the Abottsford airport location. Hyundai Venues don’t exit at AVIS Car Rental at the Abottsford Airport, rather they claim that the “category” which they sold it under (Compact/SUV) “does not exist” and they trade you “down” to a compact car but charge you the same price which you originally signed up for. So, the racquet here is offer cheap prices but trade you down a car model while keeping the price the price set for a model you thought you would get based on the site marketing.

I had booked a minivan and was given a SUV which could not fit the luggage that we had brought from overseas. Secondly, National charged us twice for the rental and I have been following up with National to refund the additional payment that they have charged me (CAD 1,711). This has yet to be resolved. Request Kayak team to help me resolve this issue please. Thanks, Farhan
