Dollar Winnipeg Airport
Winnipeg International Airport is a public establishment located just west of the city centre of Winnipeg, and is operated by the Winnipeg Airports Authority. It is a hub for several airline companies, including Calm Air and Kivallig Air, and is currently rated as the eighth busiest airport in the country of Canada. The airport is also recognised by its IATA code of YWG, and is officially named as the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport. For transport, arriving passengers can rent a car from Dollar Winnipeg Airport, and enjoy their own private vehicle. This car hire company is well known around the world for competitive rental rates and good customer services.
The airport of YWG has quite a large terminal building, where passenger facilities are housed, and where passengers on arrival flights will collect their baggage. It is also a new terminal, completed in 2011, and offers modern and efficient services. The main terminal building is home to the majority of the airport’s airline companies, however, Kivallig Air and Perimeter Airlines operate from two smaller terminals a short distance from the main building. Although a number of car hire companies have rental counters at the airport, Dollar is one of the companies that have offices nearby, and passengers will therefore require a shuttle to reach their rented car. Dollar’s shuttles are available free of charge, and will take you to their car rental site on Sargent Avenue in just a few minutes. The shuttles are capable of transporting luggage, and are equipped for the comfort of disabled passengers. Find out from Dollar further details regarding travel to their offices.
Car hire companies have a wide range of vehicles to offer their customers, and are ideal for both business and leisure travel. Customers who would prefer cheaper rental rates should consider the Compact or Economy categories, but travellers who require a more spacious vehicle should hire a Mid-size, Standard or Fullsize vehicle. There are also Premium and Luxury cars available from Dollar, as well as Minivans and SUVs. Examples of vehicles from Dollar that have cheaper rental rates are the Kia Rio, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Matrix and Suzuki Swift, and larger sized vehicles are similar to the Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Passat Sedan, Toyota Camry, Chrysler 300 and Chrysler 300C. Ideal for up to seven passengers, the Minivan category contains the Dodge Caravan, and for easy travelling the SUVs from Dollar include the Toyota Rav 4, Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, Dodge Durango and Jeep Commander.
All the vehicles mentioned above may be hired with additional items of equipment, such as child seats or satellite navigation systems. They also have automatic transmissions, and certain types may be used with Dollar hand controls for disabled drivers. Hand controls are free of charge, but all other items will come with a price tag. Any item of equipment required is recommended to be hired in advance, as their availability cannot be guaranteed at the rental counters. Vehicles should also be hired as early as possible. Online rentals are often the most cost efficient.
The vehicles for hire can also be arranged as a one way hire This means that it will be collected from one location, but returned to another. The return location could still be in Winnipeg, in another town/city of Manitoba, or may even be in another province of Canada. Rented cars may usually drive to most areas of the country, and if arranged as a cross-border rental, may be driven into the United States of America. South of Winnipeg lies the states of North Dakota and Minnesota. Dollar one way hires are usually available for most vehicles, but may incur additional charges.
The Winnipeg International car rental companies require their primary renters (and additional drivers listed on the rental contracts) to be at least 21 years of age, and to produce a valid driving license upon collection of the vehicle. The licenses should be in English, and preferably issued in Canada or the United States, however, foreign drivers can use an International Driving Permit or other documents to verify their car hire contract. Always contact Dollar for more information if you are unsure of the requirements. Keep in mind that Canadian G1 and G2 licenses are not accepted in Manitoba, only at certain rental locations in Ontario. Although 21 is the minimum age required to rent a vehicle, younger drivers will pay higher rental rates, and will have a limited selection of vehicle categories from which to choose. The primary renter will also need a major credit card, such as American Express, Diner’s Club Int’l, Mastercard or Visa.
Customers who are fond of Dollar’s services can register free of charge for the Dollar Express membership, and enjoy several exclusive benefits each time a vehicle is required from any of Dollar’s car rental locations. Customers who use this service will enjoy VIP treatment at a special counter area, have the convenience of quicker reservations, rentals and returns and could even earn free rental days with the Renter Rewards Program. All further details can be acquired from Dollar, at Winnipeg Airport.
