All of the major car rental companies have branches in Banff Town. During summer all the cars might be reserved in advance, so call ahead. If you’re flying into Calgary, reserving a car at the airport (where the fleets are huge) may yield a better deal than waiting to pick up a car when you reach Banff Town.
