KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Deer Lake

  • A car hire in Deer Lake provides you with the freedom to explore the area at your own pace and according to your own itinerary. You can easily customise your travel plans and visit attractions or destinations that interest you the most. Deer Lake serves as a convenient starting point for various excursions and day trips in the area. Whether you want to visit Gros Morne National Park, explore the Viking Trail, or discover the beauty of the Great Northern Peninsula, having a car hire in Deer Lake allows you to easily access these destinations.
  • Deer Lake, Newfoundland and Labrador, is served by one main airport, Deer Lake Regional Airport (YDF), which is located in the town itself. This airport is the primary gateway for air travel to and from the region. It offers domestic flights within Canada and limited international connections. The car hire kiosks of major companies, including National and Avis, are conveniently located near the Arrivals area within the main concourse.
  • Deer Lake and its surrounding areas are known for their wildlife population. Be cautious and watch out for animals when driving your Deer Lake car hire, especially moose, which can appear on or near the road unexpectedly. When driving your car hire in Deer Lake at night in wildlife areas where permitted, use your high beams to enhance visibility. This can help spot animals on or near the road earlier, giving you more time to react.
  • Winter weather conditions can be challenging in Deer Lake. Be prepared for snow, ice, and reduced visibility. Drive at a safe speed, leave plenty of space between vehicles, and use winter tyres for better traction. Clear your vehicle of snow and ice before driving. It is important to keep your focus on the road at all times and to watch for black ice, which is transparent and difficult to spot. Shaded areas, bridges, and areas near water sources are common places for black ice to form.
  • Book your car hire in Deer Lake at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hire in Deer Lake are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average

This was my second time driving from deer lake to St Anthony. I recommend to always use an SUV you will feel more safer especially if it’s raining or snowing.

Everything was OK. Lots of pot holes in Newfoundland.
Verified travelerJun 2023
We were very frustrated lining up a rental car only because of business hours. Maybe there could be an option for after hours pick up, maybe for a nominal fee? Luckily we were only 30 minutes past closing, but, what if the plane was late? I wonder if the reason we had such a hard time finding a car was only because of business hours...Not because of lack of cars...

Liked the car we drove alot and it was great on gas. It took way to long to get the car. It was a pick up at 1pm and didnt get the car until 2ish.. The car was 90 % clean. Which was ok. Drop off was great. Quick. Overall it was good.

Car was clean and had good gas mileage. Never expect Enterprise to help out during a disaster like Hurricane Fiona, though. We were to drop off the car in Deer Lake,NL but had to change the location to St. Johns (keeping same date and time) due to new flight schedule due to hurricane Fiona and they charged us $400.00!
