Top tips for hiring a car at St John's airport

  • A compelling reason to opt for a car rental at St John’s Airport (YYT) is the increased convenience you’ll enjoy exploring different places in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. You can visit multiple places that aren’t fully accessible by public transport. Opting for a car rental at YYT saves you long trips by Bus route. No 14, and you can take a shorter route to your destination. The collective costs of using a taxi to various destinations in the Canadian province are much higher. Utilizing a rental car will help you save money.
  • The process of collecting a car rental at St John’s Airport is smooth. The airport has several on-site car rental companies, allowing you to shop for the best car at an affordable price. Once you arrive at the airport, visit the car rental counters at the main Terminal. Make sure you carry all the required documents. After presenting your documents and completing the rental agreement, you can collect your rental car and start exploring Newfoundland and Labrador. Examine the technical conditions of the car and confirm if the necessary maps are installed before commencing your trip.
  • Dropping off your car rental at St John’s Airport is as easy as collecting it. You can return it to the pick-up or drop-off point stated in your confirmation voucher. Some rental agencies offer a 24-hour return service, so you can drop off your car during or after working hours. Other rental agencies have a scheduled drop-off time. Make sure you arrive before that stated time to avoid the later return charge. After parking the rental car at the designated drop-off point, collect your items and head to your rental company’s desk to hand over the keys and finalize the rental process. Make sure the vehicle is in perfect condition and refueled.
  • St John’s International Airport gets busy during certain times of the year. It is a busy airport preferred by tourists visiting Newfoundland and Labrador. You’ll likely experience traffic at the airport during the peak tourism season, running from May through September. More bookings are made during this period, so you will witness long queues at the car rental section. Picking up and dropping off a rental car at YYT can also be challenging during weekends, holidays, special events, and festivals.
  • Book your car hire at St John's airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car at St John's airport

  • What documentation will I need to rent a car at St John's Airport?

Foreign renters should provide an International Driving Permit and their local driver’s license. A valid ID with a photo or your passport may also be requested for identity proof. Some rental companies will ask you to come with a printout of the rental voucher sent to your confirmation email.

  • How can I pay for my car rental at St John's Airport?

    A major credit card is the best option for your St John's Airport car rental. Most rental companies prefer credit cards offered by major financial institutions because they are the best security for the period you’ll be using the rented vehicle. Some rental agencies accept cash and debit card payments. However, there will be limitations on the types of cars you can rent and the period you will use the rented vehicle.

  • What kind of amenities are offered at St John's Airport?

Pros:

Lots of trunk space, drove nicely and pretty fast/kind pickup/drop off service.

Cons:

I didnt get the vehicle of choice but it worked for what we needed. A little more pricey then I thought it would be and some extra expenses that I had to pay were not outlined when I rented the vehicle such as paying an extra $20 per day because I am under the age of 25.

After spending 1 hr on the phone with a Thrifty representative the day prior to my car pickup to advise that my flight was delayed, I was told on arrival that my reservation had been cancelled because I hadn’t arrived on time. Thrifty was unsure that they could find me a car. After all other customers had been cared for they addressed my issue and found a car. The car they gave me hadn’t been cleaned. I had booked the car months in advance and had prepaid for it. Totally outrageous service.

I asked for a shovel as St John’s Newfoundland has just received 20-20 cm snow. They said that they didn’t provide shovels. I had already paid $20 for four snow tires to be installed. I told the individual in charge that I had just had shovel my way out to come ask for a shovel when I realized that the car didn’t have one. We had to look for ways around to avoid windows left by plies or just uncleared streets as we had no means to dig our shelves out of trouble short of buying a shovel if we could find one Roy
