About Edmonton - Airport (YEG)
Address: 1, 1000 Airport Road, Leduc, T9e8b7 , Canada, Ab, Ab
Edmonton International Airport (YEG) serves the city of Edmonton and the wider region of Alberta, Canada, which is known worldwide for its spectacular national parks and pristine forests, including Banff National Park. The airport is located about 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) from Edmonton’s city center, where you will find Churchill Square, the Art Gallery of Alberta, and numerous restaurants and shops.
The Edmonton airport is conveniently located next to Canadian Highway 2. From there, it’s an easy 30-minute drive to downtown Edmonton. To get to Red Deer, which is known for its numerous ski resorts, you will need to count a one-and-a-half-hour drive from the airport. Calgary, the gateway to Alberta’s national parks, is located two-and-a-half hours south of Edmonton. The Edmonton airport has only one terminal, which is spread out over two levels (arrivals are on the ground level).
Choosing your car
There are six major Edmonton International Airport car rental companies, including Enterprise, Budget, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty and Alamo, which are located on the ground level of the airport car park. You will find a wide selection of cars from brands including Toyota, Chevrolet and Chrysler. For a business trip, choose an elegant luxury sedan with amenities such as heated leather seats. Families may prefer a more spacious car hire option such as an SUV, minivan or 8—9-person people mover. Single travelers or couples on a budget can go for an affordable compact option, or pick a fun convertible in the warmer months.
Tips and advice
Canadian winters can be very cold and snowy, especially in the Alberta region. If arriving in winter, be sure to rent a car that has snow tires and other equipment to safely handle ice and winter conditions. This is especially true if you are not used to driving in inclement winter weather.
It’s also a good idea to make sure your airport car rental is fully covered by an insurance plan, which can come in handy during the winter months especially. All major car rental companies offer insurance options, which range from partial to complete coverage.
If you have some extra time during your trip, plan a stop at Elk Island National Park, a bison refuge where you can hike, stargaze or have a family picnic. It’s located only 45 miles (73 kilometers) from Edmonton Airport, making it an easy—and well worthwhile—side trip.
Edmonton International Airport has a special clearance process, which is managed by U.S. Customers and Border Protection, for travelers who are flying to or from the United States. If you are flying directly to the United States, give yourself more time than you would normally to pass through this clearance process.
The city of Edmonton has several parking garages where you can safely leave your rental car. There is also on-street parking available in certain areas. Be sure, however, to avoid leaving valuables in your parked car, and check that you have locked it.
Some of the helpful amenities you will find at the Edmonton airport include free Wi-Fi, as well as approximately 60 shops, restaurants and other services for travelers.
