If you are planning a two country holiday you could run into difficulties renting a car one way between Montana USA and Alberta Canada. The trip sounds great combining Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Glacier National Park in the United States with the Waterton, Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada. The logistics can be difficult.

ONE WAY car rentals are usually difficult to obtain between Montana USA and Alberta Canada. One way rentals may work between major USA and Canadian Cities but usually not between Montana and Alberta!

Car companies can rent cars in their respective countries from other states or provinces but they usually can not rent cars from another country for service in their own country. The car can sit (with lost of revenue) until someone wants to rent it back to the other country.

Airport Shuttle Express of Calgary Canada is the one way solution. We can take you TO Montana from Alberta Canada or pick you up FROM Montana and take you to Alberta Canada.

Airport Shuttle Express is Alberta and USDOT license with insured to provide transborder service. We have been in business since 1998 and are members of Montana's Glacier Country Tourism as well as the National Limousine Association.
