Calgary Driving Information

Driving is on the right side of the road.

All Calgary Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.

Your local drivers' licence is required.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

Calgary Driving Stress Level: 3/10

Driving around Calgary is pretty easy except, perhaps, in winter. A good highway system links the Calgary to surrounding areas, including the Trans Canada Highway, the Sarcee Trail SW and the Glenmore Trail SW. Fines for speeding and parking in restricted areas can cost you some of your travel money, so pay attention. Look for official parking areas around town, including metered parking along a number of streets, together with large parking lots. Expect in some cases to pay over CAD 12 dollars per hour in the large parking lots downtown.
