Not many know it but the stunning subarctic landscapes and seascapes people usually associate with places like Patagonia or New Zealand can also be found in North America. Rugged coastline, cold tundra, glacial rivers, quaint fishing villages and a colourful local culture are some of the things you will see as you drive through Newfoundland and Labrador, the easternmost province of Canada. One of the gateways to this vast province is St Anthony Airport, located in the northernmost tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. The small airport serves the town of St Anthony, the perfect base to explore the beauty of this Canadian province.
Who to Book With
St Anthony is a small town serviced by a small airport. Unsurprisingly, there is only one car rental firm which operates here—National (Woodward). To access more car hire options, you can instead fly to Deer Lake Regional Airport, also in the Great Northern Peninsula. Here, you will find Avis, Enterprise, Budget, National and Thrifty.
Need to Know Essentials
When renting a car in Canada, the following items must be with you when you pick up your vehicle:
- Full driver's licence
- Identification proving you are over 21 years (some firms require 25)
- Your credit card
- Hard copy of the booking
Perhaps no other place in the world can moose pose a real danger to drivers than in Newfoundland. This is especially true for those driving at night. Moose are large creatures which get attracted to the trees and bush usually lining highways. They sometimes attack passing vehicles, seeing these as threats. Crashing into a moose may prove fatal, too, to the most unfortunate of drivers. It is always best to drive with utmost caution. The roads of this province are often considered the worst in the country. The tarmac can sometimes be uneven with large potholes. It is recommended that you ensure that your car rental is in great shape before setting off.
