Rental Cars in Calgary
I am planning a trip to Jasper and see some lakes. Can anyone recommend good rental car companies around Calgary International Airport?

Most rental agencies like Avis/budget/Hertz etc have similar programs (proceed directly to get your car and skip counter)GangStarr wrote: ↑ If you rent with national and sign up for their club you can proceed directly to a rental car of your choice if you choose emerald aisle.
Quick check of I’d and credit card and your on your way. Might not be the cheapest option but we use them for work and it does save time though I imagine most counters aren’t too busy these days. On the flip side going to a counter you might be able to get an upgrade due to lack of business.
You can try using autoslash.com to get a better deal.

1 way rentals are generally pricier if picked up and from dropped off at a different location. Especially if it's in a different city/province.

But If I make a reservation online, the price is "as is"?IceBlueShoes wrote: ↑ 1 way rentals are generally pricier if picked up and from dropped off at a different location. Especially if it's in a different city/province.
You MIGHT get lucky if they happened to have that needed to go back to their province (ie. Alberta plated car that's been sitting in BC for while), but that's a tough call.
No harm in calling the location and asking if that's common though. They might cut you a break since you're helping them out in a sense by taking it back for them.

Umm, what other way is there to do a 1-way rental?

I've read about cross-country car delivery services, but I've never used one myself.
