International Airport: Find your Car
As a big and busy air transport hub, Halifax Airport can be hard to navigate. Having your car rental pre-booked makes life a little easier, and with a little preparation you will have a stress-free experience.
Check your rental confirmation voucher before picking up your car. The in-airport rental counters can be found on the lower level of the Parkade building directly across from the terminals, and it is simple to pick-up and be on your way. Well-known brands including Thrifty, Budget and Alamo are located there.
Some companies operate from off-airport depots. This will be indicated when you book. Just read your rental confirmation voucher for instructions - most companies offer a shuttle and you will be required to call them upon arrival so they can pick you up.
See Nova Scotia with a car rental from Halifax
Halifax is centrally located on the Nova Scotia peninsula, and you have your choice of destinations after picking up your rental car. Summer is the best time for a road trip in the region, as outdoor activities are widespread and wonderful.
The South Shore and Eastern Shore lie either side of Halifax, and their convoluted coastlines offer endless coves, harbours and desolate headlands, several boasting charming old lighthouses. Surfing is popular on both Shores, as well as sailing, kayaking and birdwatching. Lunenberg to the south-west of Halifax is a particularly pretty fishing town and definitely worth a visit. Its Old Town is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Famous for its extreme high tides, the Bay of Fundy is another great destination to consider when you rent a car from Halifax Airport. Whales are a common sight in the Bay. The seafood in the region is plentiful and fantastic, so stop at a restaurant or two.
Connected to mainland Nova Scotia only by a causeway is the thickly forested Cape Breton Island, where you can drive the Cabot Trail through the highlands of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. This steep and windy route requires a bit of caution but rewards those who make the effort with incredible ocean vistas.
Begin your holiday with a Halifax Airport car rental and you are guaranteed the trip of a lifetime!
