Picking up your car rental from Saskatoon Airport

Saskatoon Airport (YXE) is located just under 7 kilometres northwest of the city centre and serves as both a local and international hub for the Saskatchewan province.  The airport offers shops, restaurants, kids’ play areas, artwork, and free WiFi throughout the terminal.

The airport has a great selection of the best and cheapest car rental companies, including Budget, Avis, Hertz, and Alamo. You may proceed to the middle of the arrivals area to find the dedicated rental counter for each supplier.

After booking your hire car, you can be in the city centre in under 15 minutes under normal driving conditions, but always allow extra time just in case.

Driving your Saskatoon rental car through Canada  

Keep these driving tips in mind when navigating the roads of Canada.

  • Always drive on the right-hand side of the road. 

  • Use signal lights whenever turning or merging lanes. 

  • Be extra cautious driving through icy and snowy road conditions during the winter months. It is recommended to contact the rental office directly if you wish to request winter tires ahead of your vehicle reservation date.

  • Pay attention to road signs that indicate the speed limit (usually 50 km in urban areas, 60-80 km in rural areas, and 80-100 km on highways). 

  • Using your mobile phone while driving is prohibited. 

  • As one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada, Saskatoon is beginning to struggle with traffic congestion. It will help to have some patience when driving your car hire on Saskatoon roads during peak travel times.

  • Looking to park your rental car? Saskatoon Airport offers both short-term and long-term parking, while the city offers a number of parking options around Riversdale, River Landing, City Hospital, and Broadway.
