New Brunswick Guide


Having made a name for itself as a glamorous getaway for US stars in the early 20th century, New Brunswick has today slipped off the world travel map. Yet visitors who venture to this Canadian province situated between Nova Scotia and Quebec will find the same forests to hunt in and the same rivers to fish that first drew American celebrities. While many pass through the province en route to the likes of Cape Breton, the provincial capital, Fredericton, and the south and southeast coast hubs of Saint John, St Andrews and Moncton are well worth a close look.

Hiring a Vehicle

The simplest way to see the province is with car hire in New Brunswick. Vehicles can be collected at the airports in Moncton or Fredericton, as well as at smaller locations such as St Andrews. All the usual suppliers have a presence, including Dollar, National and Budget. To secure a vehicle, make a booking after you compare car hire.

Transport Options

Airports in the province don’t see the sort of traffic that other major Canadian airports see, yet Moncton’s international airport has links with the US as well as seasonal flights to the Caribbean and Mexico. Roads come in from Maine, US, and neighbouring provinces Nova Scotia and Quebec, as well as from Prince Edward Island. Trains serve the east coast, including Moncton, while Acadian buses offer access to even the smallest of the province’s communities.

Car Hire Driving Tips in New Brunswick

Light traffic conditions make driving in New Brunswick a breeze. Speed traps are in place on some routes so drivers need to adhere to local speed limits to avoid getting a ticket. Winter driving presents unique dangers and sometimes results in road closures, with travellers advised to carry an emergency kit in case of breakdown during the cold months.

Not to be Missed!

The Trans Canada Highway is best toured with car rental in New Brunswick, with diversions to the southern coastal cities of St Andrews and Saint John recommended. St Andrews offers ferry access to Campobello Island, the birthplace and summer home of Franklin D Roosevelt. Meanwhile, the southeast coast is host to Moncton and dozens of Atlantic beaches.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

The continental climate sees warm but rarely hot summers (June through August) and mild to cold winters (November through March). Summer temperatures in the south hover around 20°C, while in the winter they rarely fall below -10°C. Rain is most common in the summer in the interior, while the south sees its wettest weather in autumn and winter. The best time to travel here is summer, when outdoor areas of beauty are at their finest and the beaches of the south are open for swimming.

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?

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).
