Top tips for hiring a car at Winnipeg airport

  • Ideally, you’d like to travel everywhere in your personal car for privacy and comfort. But you left your own vehicle at home and flew into Winnipeg. A car rental at Winnipeg Airport should give you a similar experience to riding in your car. That way, you can get to your planned destinations without the trouble of coordinating meet-up points or multiple bus rides. If you are traveling with kids, forget the stress of carrying child-safety seats because most car rental companies at YWG have this option to let the little ones ride safely. Just make reservations in advance and have everything ready as soon as you alight from the plane.
  • When on a group trip, of say 7-8 people, a compact car may be too small to accommodate everyone. But don’t worry because Winnipeg Airport car rental offers minivans to accommodate multiple passengers and their pieces of luggage. A larger group of 12-15 could use a passenger van. SUV rentals are popular options for driving up steep hills. Choose from upgrades and crossover sizes in either luxury or economy class. When space and power are a priority, rent a premium or elite SUV.
  • After flying into YWG, look for the rental counters inside the passenger terminal. Some car counters are on level 4 of the parking garage. Show the attendants your documents and take the car keys. Your reserved vehicle should be within walking distance of the terminal. Follow the directions and note the exact parking lot if you have chosen the same location for returns. When the trip is over, record the mileage and the amount of fuel used on the paperwork. You don’t need to line up at the counter to give back the document and car keys. Simply drop them in the return box and wait for a closed agreement to be mailed to you.
  • Normally, road traffic in Winnipeg starts to build up from 7.30 am and may overflow into the airport’s main road. The congestion dies down at around 9 am, so plan your pick-up anytime outside the morning rush. If you will be returning the vehicle later in the day, avoid the evening rush from 3.30 pm-5.30 pm. The speed limit around Winnipeg International Airport is 30 mph, so be patient when dropping off and picking up a car rental at Winnipeg Airport.
  • Book your car hire at Winnipeg airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Winnipeg airport

  • Is a one-way car rental from Winnipeg Airport worth it?

    A one-way rental becomes relevant when you don’t have another flight departing from YWG once you are done with a road trip. Car rental providers at this airport have different policies for these kinds of trips. They also have distinct drop-off locations scattered across Winnipeg and other cities in Manitoba province. Note that you will be charged an extra fee if you choose to go one-way. Inquire from the rental company if they have valet services, in which case they send an attendant to retrieve the vehicle from your location as soon as you’re done with the trip.

  • Should I choose limited or unlimited miles when renting a car at Winnipeg Airport?

    Endless destinations will be calling as soon as you drive out of YWG. Limited miles mean you have to adhere to the daily allowance as indicated on the rental agreement. But unlimited miles allow you to travel as far as you can (T&C apply). If you want to exhaust Winnipeg, choose the latter so you can tick all the must-sees.

  • What conditions must I fulfill to obtain a car rental at Winnipeg Airport?

    You need a valid driver’s permit and to meet the age requirement of the particular vehicle supplier. Even though a Manitoba driver’s license is granted at the age of 16 and above, car rental companies at Winnipeg Airport only accept drivers who are at least 19 years old. An additional charge applies for all renters under 25. However, not everyone is allowed to choose a car from categories like premium SUVs and large-capacity vehicles. Age restrictions for these categories differ from one company to the other.

  • What is the cheapest car rental company at Winnipeg airport?

    In the past 72 hours, the cheapest rental cars were found at Budget (S$ 43/day), Dollar (S$ 44/day) and Thrifty (S$ 57/day).

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Winnipeg airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Winnipeg airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Driving Force, Economy Rent a Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, National, and Payless.

When I gave the rep my confirmation number I was told it belonged to someone else. She said she had cars available and honoured the rate listed in my confirmation email. It really made my day as I had been travelling all day and my luggage had gotten lost and I wanted at that point was to get to my hotel and go to bed.

The only thing I would change are the hours of operation, but I get that Winnipeg isn’t exactly a “24 hour” city.

Pros:

The young lady who assisted me was very helpful. I wanted to leave my Jeep behind while I rented a 1/2 ton for about 8 hours and she helped me telling me where would be safe for me to leave it and made it easy to understand everything in the rental agreement. She made the experience much more pleasant than other rental agencies I've used in the past.

Cons:

If there was 1 thing, it would be the gas filling. I never like to go by someone else's word that the tank is full when it's returned by another client. I fill the tank completely, and I know people who don't. If there wasn't such a penalty for returning it full then it would be better if someone took it to a gas station and filled it immediately upon return. I wasn't more than a few miles from the rental agency, and the gauge had already moved beneath the full line. It was not filled like I did.

I paid for what they advertised as an Audi A4 or similar. I get to the airport and they said their equivalent is a Chrysler 300 or Dodge Charger. So basically it as a straight up lie. I’m sorry but an equivalent vehicle would’ve been a Mercedes or BMW. My car didn’t even have leather. What a joke. Never renting from this company again and will be writing a Google review to warn others as well.

Cons:

When picking up the car they didn't have the car size I had reserved, the company representative tried to put me in a smaller car which was unsuitable for my needs, it took me sometime to convince him that I could not settle for his proposal and that I would expect from him to upsize the vehicle at no additional cost instead of downsizing at the same rate. Eventually he somehow found a proper size car which worked well but had a coolant level warning light come on intermittently while driving. I reported this problem after it had appeared a few times and was asked to bring the car in and exchange it for another. Needless to say I did not appreciate the "welcome treatment" I had received. Other than that everything worked out fine
