Dawson Guide

A city made famous by the gold rush of the late 1800s, Dawson City used to be one of Canada's greatest destinations. The city still resonates with gold fever, although these days it's solely a tourist attraction. Throughout Dawson City, you can't miss the many relics of its glorious past.

Redolent of the Wild West is the Diamond Tooth Gertie's Gambling Hall, which is Canada's oldest casino. Here you can play the tables, or alternatively sit back and watch Gertie and her Can-Can dancers perform. The Jack London Cabin & Interpretive Centre and Dawson City Museum are other sights that shouldn't be missed.

For a fun and educational gold mining tour, head south of town to Bonanza Creek Discovery Claim. Here you can actually pan for gold, or take a mining tour. The chances of hitting gold are pretty limited, but it's well worth the trip for the experience.

Just over an hour, north of Dawson City on the Dempster highway, is Tombstone Territorial Park. The park is a geographical wonder, affording fantastic views of the rugged landscape. The weather can be capricious and the terrain unkind, so make sure that you are well prepared if you plan to hike around the area.

Greyhound Canada offers scheduled bus service to Whitehorse six days a week from Edmonton and Vancouver. From there, take the Dawson City Courier, which operates several times a week. To reach Dawson City by air you must get a connecting flight from Whitehorse in Yukon Territories or Fairbanks in Alaska. Most flights into Whitehorse are domestic, arriving from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Yellowknife, but there are also several flights a week from Anchorage in Alaska.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
