Getting there & away
With next to no public transportation available, rental cars are the preferred method for most travelers going to/from Charlottetown. During the summer cars are in short supply, so book ahead.
Nationwide companies such as Avis, Budget, National and Hertz have offices in town and at the airport. Note that the airport desks are strictly for people with reservations.
Your best option in Charlottetown is National (902-368-2228; cnr Kensington Rd & Exhibition Dr). New compact cars with unlimited kilometers and insurance rent for $60 per day.
Charlottetown Airport is 8km north of the city center at Brackley Point and Sherwood Rds. A taxi to/from town costs $12, plus $4 for each additional person.
