KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cranbrook

  • Hiring a car in Cranbrook, British Columbia, is recommended because it allows you to fully explore the city and its surrounding areas. By reducing your dependence on the local public transport, it enables you to freely explore what this city has to offer on your own timetable. With such wonderful places to visit in the surrounding area, such as Mt Baker, Cranbrook Community Forest and Kootenay River, you can use your car hire in Cranbrook to explore the city’s famous landscapes.
  • There are plenty of choices for car hire in Cranbrook, which are available at Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC). You can find companies such as National, Enterprise, Budget and Sunny Cars. Budget’s offices are located near the main car park, while National has its office just in front of Airport Access Road; these are the more popular companies used. The offices have varying opening hours – some are only open for a few hours a day, while others may open in the morning and close at around 19:30, so we recommend that you investigate this when you plan your journey to the airport.
  • Drivers in Cranbrook tend to be polite and calm, with very little evident road rage to consider, and we recommend that you also try to adopt a patient approach as you drive around the city. While jaywalking is illegal, it is common, and so we recommend that you drive cautiously, particularly in winter, when pedestrians may have reduced visibility due to weather and hats or hoods. You may turn right at a red light, as long as there is no oncoming traffic and you have come to a full stop before starting to move again. It is illegal to overtake a school bus that has stopped and has flashing lights, as the safety of the local community’s children is paramount.
  • We suggest when driving your Cranbrook car hire that you try and avoid rush hour, as this is when the city traffic tends to be the busiest. This usually runs from around 08:00 to 09:00 and later in the afternoon around 17:00 to 18:00. The city receives a lot of snow in winter, so we advise you to drive carefully and make sure that you have all of the appropriate equipment for your vehicle. Most accidents are recorded at the Theatre Road and Victoria Avenue intersection in the middle of town, so take extra care when driving there.
  • Book your car hire in Cranbrook at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Cranbrook are around 6% cheaper than other car types, on average

The only glitch was I thought I booked a 4 runner but when got to airport the rental agent said beware of the small print in what you select. The small print says ‘or equivalent’. Most small airport car rentals only have ‘equivalents’. So lesson learned. The equivalent was adequate for the snowy and ice conditions. We upgraded for snow tires which we needed.
