Drive away and explore Jasper with a rental car from Airport Rentals.
Jasper, tucked away in the Canadian Rockies, is an unassuming mountain town at the centre of the big, wild and wonderful Jasper National Park. Quieter and more low key than its famous southern counterpart of Banff, this town is a fantastic place to base yourself with a car hire and explore the natural beauty of Canada’s stunning western mountain range. There are some amazing places within easy reach of Jasper - and you can relax after a long day of adventure with a soak in the nearby Miette Hot Springs.
Find an affordable car hire in Jasper with Airport Rentals and head out on an adventure to remember. You could follow the mountains down towards Banff, with a detour to Calgary to take a few day trips from that big, bold and exciting city, or drive southwest through the peaks and foothills towards Vancouver, stopping in at Kamloops and a few other places along the way. You might even want to leave Canada behind and head across the border to the United States. With a rented set of wheels and your road trip essentials packed, North America is your oyster!

A guide to Jasper
Officially classified as a special municipality, Jasper is partly governed by Federal Parks Canada. It was first established in 1813 as a fur trade outpost and is now the commercial centre of Jasper National Park. It is known for the Jasper SkyTram, a scenic gondola, and for proximity to natural wonders like the Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Falls. Jasper has a climate which borders Humid Continental and Subarctic, with defined seasons.
Jasper does have an airport, but it is a small facility mainly for military use. The closest major airport is Edmonton Airport, a big and busy airport about a four-hour drive east on Highway 16.
