  Getting around

The primary entry point to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, St. John's International Airport (YYT) is located 10 km (6 mi) north of the provincial capital of St. John’s. Nearly 70 percent of travelers to Newfoundland and Labrador come in via St. John’s, and most take advantage of on-site airport car rentals from the most trusted names in car hire — Avis, Enterprise, Budget, Hertz, and Thrifty, among others.

Situated on the northern tip of the Avalon Peninsula, St. John’s is either the end of the road, or the origin of all roads across Canada. Highway 1 (The Trans-Canada Highway) begins (or ends) in the northern reaches of the city of St. John’s and covers 4,800 km across the country.

Getting around the city of St. John’s is fairly easy enough — provided you have GPS to help navigate the somewhat haphazard layout of streets and highways. You have to remember that St. John’s is the oldest city in North America, and city planning wasn’t such a big deal in the 1400s. At any rate, traffic is extremely moderate, even by Canadian city standards — except during the peak tourist season from May to September. That’s when you’ll encounter a few delays downtown. Otherwise, it’s smooth sailing in every direction, with plenty of parking once you’ve reached your destination.

Although St. John’s has plenty of historical and recreational attractions of its own, the city and airport are more commonly used as a jump-off to other spots in the region.

  Choosing your car

Choosing your car for a visit to St. John’s needs to be done ASAP. Most car rental fleets don’t have enough vehicles to accommodate the crush of summer tourists, so you’d be wise to act now. It’s pretty simple though. Are you planning to do some sightseeing and maybe take a quick trip to the Atlantic coast? Toyota compact and Ford fullsize sedans are ideal for city and highway navigation. Conquer the elements at an affordable rate in a Jeep SUV. Families and groups with cargo will want to rent the trusty Dodge 7-9 seater minivan, the mainstay of all-purpose travel.

  Tips and advice for renting a car at St. John's Airport (newfoundland And Labrador)

1

Car rental availability gets really tight during the abovementioned peak season.

2

The vast majority of scenic destinations in Newfoundland and Labrador are only accessible by car. These areas are frequently several hundred kilometers apart. Most visitors have no choice but to rent a car.

3

Most highways in Newfoundland do not have any kind of illumination. Therefore, driving at night requires extra caution. Most experts advise against driving the highways after sundown and before sunrise.

4

The most common road hazard in this part of the world is of the four-legged variety: moose, elk, reindeer, bear, and an assortment of other critters are frequently on their way to somewhere else, too.

5

Road services between towns and cities are few and far between. Don’t pass up a chance to fuel up.

6

Potholes are a major headache on Newfoundland roads, particularly on provincial roads, which get beat up during winter and don’t get fixed until late summer, only to have the cycle repeat itself.
