National Winnipeg Airport
The airport is located just a few kilometres from the city centre of Winnipeg, one of the larger cities in the province of Manitoba, Canada. The airport is a hub for the airline companies of Calm Air, Perimeter Aviation and Kivallig Air, and handles approximately 3.3 million passengers per annum, which makes it the eighth busiest airport for passenger traffic in the country. It is also one of the few airports able to offer 24-hour unrestricted flights, and one of the eight Canadian airports with US border preclearance facilities. There are several car hire companies available as well, such as National Car Hire, which is a company well respected by business travellers.
The city of Winnipeg’s Airport is quite large, but is still easy to navigate. It consists of a single, main terminal building that processes the majority of arrival and departure flights, but also has another two smaller terminals that are used by Perimeter Aviation and Kivallig Air. The main terminal has many facilities, including shops and restaurants, information points and free Wi-Fi internet connections. It is also where the car hire companies are found, as they are located in the parkade just opposite the terminal. The rental counters of National can be found on the main level of the parkade. National’s hours of operation are from 06:30 to 23:59, seven days a week, and their vehicles may be hired in advance or over the rental counters. An online and advanced reservation is recommended for lower car rental rates.
National was founded in 1947, and have since served the needs of the frequent airport business traveller. During their many years of service, they have helped to pioneer the corporate-account business, and they also introduced the industry’s first comprehensive frequent-renter program. This program came about in 1987, and is referred to as Emerald Club. Members of the club are able to drive vehicles of any variety, yet pay only the reserved Midsize rental rates, have access to counter bypass options and enjoy faster online reservations and vehicle returns, with e-receipts and the ‘Drop & Go’ service. Emerald Club members also receive many awards, which could be in the form of free rental days, frequent flyer miles or hotel rewards. Their rental agreement will also accrue no second-driver frees, and all members are offered exclusive discounts through periodic emails.
Emerald Club members who use National’s car rental services on a more regular basis can even aspire to higher statuses. The Emerald Club Executive Status is achieved with twelve paid rentals or 40 paid rental days in a calendar year, and the Emerald Club Executive Elite Status is achieved with 25 paid rentals or 85 paid rental days in a calendar year. Further benefits and discounts are available to these customers.
National Winnipeg Airport has a large range of vehicles available for hire. They are arranged into categories such as Economy, Compact, Midsize and Standard, and generally come with automatic transmissions. Economy cars are best for lower rental rates, single drivers or persons with just a few luggage items to load. They are similar to the Suzuki Swift. The Nissan Versa is an example of a Compact car, and the Dodge Caliber is a Midsize car. Standard and Fullsize cars, as well as Premium and Luxury vehicles, are larger, with room for five passengers and up to six luggage items. They could be similar to the Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Allure and Chrysler 300C. National also offers their customers a range of Minivans, SUVs and Crossovers for hire, which include the Dodge Grand Caravan, Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Ford Edge, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban. Certain of these vehicles seat up to seven passengers, however, if even more space is required, the Chevrolet Express, a Passenger Van, is able to accommodate fifteen travellers.
The majority of the Winnipeg International Airport car rental companies hire additional items of equipment with their vehicles. Child seats are available in various sizes, for infants and for older children, and satellite navigations systems are extremely useful for persons who are unfamiliar with the roads in and around Winnipeg. The GPS units available are of top-quality, featuring a selection of languages, pre-programmed points of interest, easy-to-use interfaces and turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode. It could be a device that saves much time and frustration. National hand controls for disabled drivers are also available for persons who suffer from lower limb disabilities. The device is used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and is free of charge from Winnipeg Airport. Hand controls, as well as all other items of equipment from National, should be reserved in advance.
If a customer is not returning to Winnipeg Airport, one way hire services can be requested, allowing the rented car to be delivered to another National location. A vehicle hired in this way can usually be driven to most parts of Canada, and may even be allowed into the United States of America, as a cross-border rental. National one way hires may incur additional charges, depending on the return location chosen for the vehicle.
In general, National customers should be at least 21 years of age, and will require a valid drivers license and major credit card. Further details are available from the airport branch.
