Car and Truck Rentals

Renting a vehicle

The major car rental chains provide services in the larger communities, and cars and trucks can usually be booked from the 1-800 number from southern Canada. In smaller communities with a road network, vehicles can usually be rented from a car dealer, the gas station or perhaps the hotel. Yellowknife has a wide range of vehicles available, however your choice may be limited for example in Fort Simpson or Norman Wells, and a big 4 x 4 4-wheel drive truck may be your only option. Dealers and rental agencies will want to know where you are headed - if you are driving long distances, you will have a more comfortable ride in a larger vehicle.
