Default renting a car in halifax

hi,
i'm going to halifax on vos on 9/19. can anyone explain the process of renting a car there? i am traveling with 3 others and i think it would be more economical to drive to peggy's cove in a rental than do a shore tour through rccl.
thanks,
mcw

I've been told there is an Enterprise agency at the port. If you go to Enterprise's website and type in "cruise" for the location, it will come up. Our cruise is in October so I can't give you any first hand knowledge.

We rented a car in Halifax at the Port. We drove to Peggy's Cove. We rented a mini-van as there was 8 of us and only spent about $75. It was great!

I rented a "mid size" from Enterprise. $45 CAD or $36 US. The RCCL excursion is $48 per person to Peggy's Cove. Renting is a much better deal.

Get to rental desk early or book advance or you may be stuck.

I didn't see this thread prior to posting other questions about Halifax. This sounds like a good idea.

Can anyone tell me what the insurance requirements were for the rental car? Were you given a Canadian Liability Card to carry? AAA mentions this card on their web site, but when we tried to get one from the local office, they said to obtain it at the rental agency. Was a valid U.S. driver's license acceptable, or did they also require a passport? Thanks for any info!

in halifax i just used my nys license. i did opt for "gap" insurance, but your car insurance should cover anything else. check with your ins agent before you go.

I'd skip Peggy's Cove completely! I've been there and wish I never bothered. It's boring, nothing to see and literally nothing to do! You go look at the light house and mail a post card... Uggh stay in the ship and get a massage

Halifax is a fabulous city--so much to do..if you don't want Peggy's Cove or finish early you can do the whole city by the hop off & on bus tour or just wander on your own...can walk to most sites if you are a good walker...Great tavern--O'Carrols for lunch Wish we were back there!
