Edmonton Guide


In the heart of Alberta, surrounded by unblemished prairie land, is the provincial capital of Edmonton. Having prospered from its oil industry, Alberta boasts some incredible recreation facilities, including the world’s largest shopping mall and an illustrious theatre. The outlying areas of Edmonton, including a beautiful national park, are perfect for outdoor exploration, camping and wildlife watching.

The Muttart Gallery, a construction of glass pyramids, houses a remarkable display of flower and plant life; while the Devonian Botanic Garden is adorned with thousands of species of exotic plant life. It takes at least a full day to explore the garden as the nature trails seem to stretch interminably.

The opportunities for hiking, cycling and cross-country skiing are better here than in most places in Canada. The city’s park system is huge and is spread all over the massive wooded river valley.

Just south of the river is Edmonton’s historic district, Old Strathcona. Here you’ll find many of Alberta’s student crowd hanging out in the myriad cafés, restaurants, galleries and boutiques. Nestled in 23 hectares of verdant parkland is the Alberta Legislature Building, which is worth a visit to see its beautiful surroundings.

The ultra modern ‘pedways’ (air-controlled underground walkways) lead downtown. Downtown Alberta offers up first class hotels, delectable restaurants, busy shopping malls, a library, City Hall and the great Citadel Theatre. If the malls prove to be too contrived, then you can head to High Street or Old Strathcona for some shopping.

The country’s largest planetarium can be found in the Odyssium, a building which also contains an IMAX theatre and observatory. Alternatively, Fort Edmonton Park affords the visitor a look at life back in the pioneer days, with re-creations of streets from different time periods. The gigantic Citadel Theatre runs shows all year round, and bookings should be made in advance.

For those with a propensity for social drinking, or even a penchant for country and western, Alberta will definitely be enjoyable. There are numbers of bars downtown, and while many are dedicated to cowboys and country music, others cater to patrons with different musical tastes.

The major suburbs in Edmonton are: Acheson, Ardrossan, Beaumont, Devon, Enoch, Fort Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Spruce Grove and St Albert.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
