KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kamloops

  • Car hire in Kamloops provides you with more flexibility than if you were to use alternative modes of transport, such as a bus or train. This is because you can travel whenever works for you rather than having to wait for public transport schedules. For example, if you travelled to the nearby town of Aberdeen, you could do so in about 12 minutes by car. The same journey using a bus would take around 45 minutes and you would also have to abide by the schedule for departures.
  • Kamloops Airport (YKA) has a range of car hire options for you to pick from, including National, so you will be able to find a suitable vehicle with ease. To get to the car hire locations, you should exit the terminal building onto Airport Road and turn left, from where it is only a short walk to the car hire offices.
  • When you get a car hire in Kamloops, you will realise that it is a popular city throughout the year, with it being great for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. There isn’t a law in Canada that restricts people from crossing the road at will, so you should stay alert to holidaymakers crossing at non-designated zones. Cycling is also a popular sport in Kamloops, so you make sure that you check your mirrors regularly, especially when you’re coming up to a turn.
  • When you get a Kamloops car hire you will see there can be quite a lot of traffic, with many people travelling to enjoy the great outdoors. This can make driving a bit difficult in the city, especially if you’re in a new car with unfamiliar surroundings. If you don’t like driving on the road with lots of cars, then you should avoid rush hour, which is usually from 06:30 to 09:30 and 15:00 to 19:00. Victoria Street, which is near the train station, can get particularly busy, so it’s a good idea to stay clear of this road and find an alternative route.
  • Book your car hire in Kamloops at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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

If you’re planning to stay in the city, then a small car, such as a Chevrolet Spark, is a good option; it will make parking easier. However, if you want to go out and explore the mountainous surroundings, you will need something a little tougher. For instance, a Hyundai Tucson offers great handling as well as superior grip on steep terrain and the ability to drive on most surfaces with ease.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kamloops?

    You must stick to the speed limits when you’re driving your car hire in Kamloops; otherwise, you are putting yourself at risk of an accident or being prosecuted by the local authorities. In general, on the motorway, you can drive as fast as 120 km/h, but some zones are limited to 100 km/h, so you need to watch out for this. In rural areas which aren’t motorways, you can usually drive at 80 km/h, whereas in Kamloops and other urban places, the maximum speed that’s allowed is 50 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kamloops?

    You can park on the street in Kamloops. Usually, between Monday and Saturday from 09:00 to 18:00, you can pay using the Flowbird app. Alternatively, you can also pay with cash or a card at the machines provided.

There are also lots of car parks, such as St Paul Street Parking Lot, which costs roughly C$ 6 (A$ 6.64) per day or C$ 75 (A$ 82) per month.

Pros:

The car I got had a clean bill of condition but I found several significant dings and scratches that I may have been held responsible for.

Cons:

The original booking was at a good rate, but when I extended it from 10 days to 2 weeks, I was very unhappy at the increased rate - I would have expected it to be the same or even better given a weekly rate - it went from $30/per day through the independent booking site to $45!!

Pros:

The winter tires made the trip much safer and the employee at the NotreDame office was very kind, easy to understand and fair. The car itself was easy to handle and made for a fun experience to drive.

Cons:

Pick up was difficult all around. Some of the guidlines regarding being under the age of 25 should really be looked into and maybe reconsidered depending on the individual's insurance, references, experience, etc... Upon arriving back home to drop off the car, it was found that the chip in the windshield was recently documented but not reported and fixed. Therefore, I'd traveled with an unsafe and faulty windshield. This missed detail makes me sceptical of renting a vehicle with Budget again, in the future.

Pros:

There were no surprises. Everything was as expected. The car drove well, and I checked hours for pickup to avoid any embarassing gaffes like showing up when they weren't open.

Cons:

I don't like when people make a mistake and then write a negative review based around their error. On the whole there were no issues with my rental. Budget held up their end and so did I. Quick and dirty.

Cons:

My last day in BC I had to drive 2hrs on the TransCanada highway up a widing mountain, in the snow, in a front wheel drive car that didn't have snow tires. Snow ties should be mandatory in the winter.

They really need to advance into the 21st century. everything nowadays is digital. My credit card is part of my digital wallet but it's not good enough for them. The staff is very friendly, Kind & helpful, it's the company BS & hoops you have to jump through that make this a poor customer service exp.
