Tips for renting a car in Winnipeg

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Winnipeg including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 17 February 2024.
  • Getting a car rental in Winnipeg is one of the most convenient ways to explore the city. First, car rentals help you get to destinations where the scheduled bus services do not serve. You can also use the car whenever you need it, unlike transport options that operate on fixed schedules.
  • Driving around Winnipeg is usually relatively easy. However, it tends to get a little difficult when driving on some roads during rush hours. Traffic jams in the downtown area are particularly common around 7:30 am – 9 am and 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm from Monday to Friday.
  • While you may struggle to get parking areas in downtown Winnipeg, with a little help it becomes easy to get a spot. Free street parking is available from 5:30 pm to 8 am from Mondays through Saturdays while parking is free on Sundays and statutory holidays.
  • If you're arriving through Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport and looking to drive yourself around the city, start by getting a car rental from the airport. Many international car rental agencies have their counters in the Arrival Halls of the airport.
  • Winnipeg, Manitoba, situated in the heart of the province, serves as a gateway to various captivating cities and destinations. A 2h drive west leads to Brandon, Manitoba's second-largest city, boasting parks and cultural attractions. Southeast of Winnipeg, approximately an hour away, lies Steinbach, renowned for its Mennonite heritage, including the Mennonite Heritage Village. To the north, a 40-minute drive brings you to Selkirk, nestled along the Red River and offering outdoor activities and historical sites.
  • You can drive a rental car from Winnipeg to other provinces in Canada. Some rental companies may allow you to pick up a car in one location, like Winnipeg, and drop it off in another province. However, this may be subject to additional fees, and not all companies offer this option. Check with the specific rental company for their policies on one-way rentals. Ensure that your rental car insurance coverage is valid for travel to other provinces.
  • Driving in Winnipeg, especially for visitors, presents a unique experience with aspects that distinguish it from other locations. Road signs in Winnipeg may include both English and French, reflecting Canada's bilingual nature. Familiarizing yourself with common French road signs can be helpful. Winnipeg has some roundabouts, which may be less common in certain regions. Canada uses the metric system for measurements, so speed limits, distances, and temperature are in kilometers – be prepared to adjust to this system if you're accustomed to imperial units.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Winnipeg, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 17 February 2024.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Winnipeg?

If you’re looking forward to visiting Winnipeg and looking for the best type of car to drive in the city, we got you covered. The type of car you should go for depends on the number of passengers you will be carrying around, the purpose of your visit, and the places you intend to visit during your stay in Winnipeg. If you’re planning to explore some natural areas, consider getting a top off-road car like a Jeep Wrangler or Land Rover Defender since it suits outdoor adventures. Those travelling as a family can look for a minivan or a mid-size SUV that would comfortably ferry all their passengers and luggage. If you’ll be driving around the urban areas, go for a compact car like Nissan Tiida that would help you maneuver the tight spots.

What are the requirements to rent a car in Winnipeg?

Before renting a car in Winnipeg, some documents are needed. First, all renters must have a valid driver’s license. You will also need to present a credit card or a debit card to get a rental car in Winnipeg. If you’re a foreigner, you can present a valid driver’s license from your country or origin provided it is typed in the English Alphabet. If you want to rent a car in Winnipeg but don't possess any of the above-mentioned documents, you can present an International driver's license. You also need to be at least 23 years of age to be allowed to drive a car rental in Winnipeg. Additionally, if you’re a renter under 25 years, you will be charged an extra fee per day.

What are the rules for driving in Winnipeg?

While driving in Winnipeg is relatively easy, there are some driving rules you should be aware of when driving around the city. Just a heads up, driving in Winnipeg is always on the right side of the road. If this will be your first time driving on the right side of the road, we recommend spending some time getting familiar with it on smaller roads before driving on the highways. The law requires all car occupants in Winnipeg to put on restraints when in a moving car, meaning adults must wear a seatbelt while kids are put in a safety seat. Avoid driving car rentals in Winnipeg when your BAC is 0.05% or higher as this will attract a fine. Finally, we recommend confirming with relevant authorities in Winnipeg to ensure you don't miss out on any recent changes in traffic laws.

If I am traveling with children to Winnipeg, what do I need to know about car seat laws in Winnipeg when I rent a car?

When renting a car in Winnipeg, visitors should be aware of car seat laws to ensure the safety of young passengers. Manitoba's law mandates that children under the age of seven, or weighing less than 80 lb, must use an appropriate child restraint system. Rental companies may provide child seats for an additional fee, but it's advisable to check in advance, and visitors may choose to bring their own to ensure compliance with local regulations and guarantee the safety of young travelers.

How easy is it to get from the airport in Winnipeg to downtown Winnipeg in a rental car?

Getting from Winnipeg International Airport (YWG) to downtown Winnipeg in a rental car is generally a straightforward and convenient process. Most major car rental companies have desks and service counters located at Winnipeg International Airport. These companies typically provide a wide range of rental car options, and you can make reservations in advance or rent a car on-site. Winnipeg International Airport is located about 8 km (5 mi) west of downtown Winnipeg. The airport is well-connected to the city by highways and roads. Upon picking up your rental car, you can exit the airport and follow well-marked signs leading to the city center. Major routes, such as Wellington Avenue or Route 90, can be used to connect to downtown Winnipeg. The drive from the airport to downtown Winnipeg typically takes around 15 to 20 minutes, depending on traffic conditions.

What are some things to consider when renting a car in Winnipeg in the wintertime?

It is advisable to confirm whether the rental car is equipped with winter tires, which provide enhanced traction on snow- and ice-covered roads. Familiarize yourself with winter driving skills, including safe navigation in snowy and icy conditions, appropriate braking techniques, and adjusting driving speed to match the road conditions. Ensure the presence of a snow brush and ice scraper in the rental car to clear windows, lights, and mirrors before driving. Check fluid levels, including windshield washer fluid, and maintain at least a half-full fuel tank to account for potential delays or road closures in colder temperatures. Pack an emergency kit with essentials such as a blanket, flashlight, extra clothing, and non-perishable snacks. Finally, you should regularly monitor the car's battery health, as cold temperatures can strain weak batteries.
