Car hire at Winnipeg Airport

More than just a jumping off point for Canada's great white north, Winnipeg is a culturally diverse and modern city. Enjoy what it has to offer with a rental car from DriveNow.

The Canadian city of Winnipeg is known as the 'Gateway to the West' - and for good reason, too.

Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport - the key details

The first note about Winnipeg International Airport is how close it is to the city - just 10 km west of downtown. As a result, it's easy to reach your accommodation before exploring the wider Manitoba region. Of course, supporting close to 4 million passengers a year and being the seventh busiest airport in Canada, Winnipeg's airport is one of the more modern facilities, with innovative infrastructure and design helping you get to your destination as quickly as possible.

Should you have a few hours to spare, consider an airport tour from one of Winnipeg's award-winning Goldwing Ambassadors. In addition to showcasing the history of the airport, you can explore the various services and logistics that make Winnipeg tick. The terminal walls are also covered with fantastic local artwork which tour guides can explain in more detail.

If you are eager to pick up your rental car, you'll be happy to know that this process is made simple at Winnipeg Airport. On the main level of the 4-level Parkade, you’ll find four car rental counters where you can pick up the keys to your vehicle. As you have already booked with DriveNow, the paperwork is a mere formality and you can set your sights on your first stop!


Where to drive in Winnipeg?

The central province of Manitoba certainly represents everything from a Canadian postcard. Sitting on the edge of Hudson Bay and covered with tranquil lakes and green forests, Winnipeg can be used as the starting point for a pure Canadian break. Combining the history and culture of Winnipeg with outstanding natural beauty, it isn't hard to see why this city is actually more populous than Vancouver.

While Manitoba's isolation is great for tourists looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city living, it means that most people will enter the region through Winnipeg’s main airport. Of course, regardless of the direction of your descent into Winnipeg, you'll emerge from the clouds with breathtaking views of mountains, lakes and the modern infrastructure of the central city below.

Winnipeg has a cosmopolitan history - combining aboriginal culture and tradition with English and French influences. As a result, there are a number of landmarks to see within the city, including the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Manitoba Legislative Building, St. Boniface Cathedral and Esplanade Riel. However, you are in one of the most beautiful regions in the world so make sure you venture into the wilderness for a true taste of Canadian life!

Lake Winnipeg - The sixth largest freshwater lake in Canada, these pristine waters are well worth a visit. The lake is located around an hour from the city and is lined with remote sandy beaches, steep cliffs, dense forests and small, friendly settlements.

Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre - With more than 100,000 lakes in Manitoba, the province is a hub for birdwatching. At the centre, take up an ideal spot along the wetlands and sandbars and get your camera ready for the graceful herons and hawks flying across the sky.
