Location information for Banff

Introduction

Banff is an important tourist attraction in Canada. People are attracted by the beautiful nature in the Banff National Park, both in summer and in winter when you can ski. You can also visit caves and people come to Banff for the hot springs.

Population

The town has almost 9,000 inhabitants. In recent years the population has grown significantly because of increasing tourism. To protect the surrounding National Park, Banff has applied a residence stop. Only those running a business in Banff can take up permanent residence.

Location

Banff is located in the west of Canada, in the Rocky Mountains along the Trans-Canada Highway, 126 kilometers west of Calgary. It's situated within the Banff National Park at an altitude of over 1,400 meters. The town is surrounded by summits, including Mount Rundle, Sulphur Mountain, Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain.

Economy

Banff has only one economic sector: tourism. The town attracts visitors all year round, in summer months to hike through the beautiful National Park; in winter months for winter sports.

Airports

Calgary International Airport is situated northeast of town. There are connections with several cities in Canada, the United States and Central America, and there are also direct flights to European cities like London, Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.

Public Transport

Banff has a public bus system since 2008. These so-called Roam buses are hybrid buses, beautifully decorated with scenes from the National Park. There are two lines: line 1 runs to Sulphur Mountain, line 2 to Tunnel Mountain. In addition, Banff's train station is a stop for the Rocky Mountaineer and Royal Canadian Pacific tourist trains.

Traffic and Parking

Banff is trying to discourage the use of cars in the town itself as much as possible. Street parking is therefore expensive. The city council prefers for you to park your rental car at one of the parking lots at the verge of the center and to continue by foot or bus. At these parking lots you can park your car without limitation; at the lots within the city a time limit applies.

Hotels

Being a tourist center, Banff has no shortage of accommodation, but spending the night in town isn't cheap. Most hotels are located along Banff Avenue and Tunnel Mountain Road. If you dispose of a rental car, it's cheaper to stay at the nearby Canmore.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
