Introduction

Halifax is the capital of Nova Scotia, a peninsula on the east coast of Canada. It lies on a strategic point on a natural port and was the arrival point for European emigrants to Canada. As one of the oldest cities in North America (Halifax was founded in 1749, as a British military base), the city breathes history. The 19th century district, Privateer's Wharf, is a cozy place with many restaurants and bars. 

Population

More than 370,000 people live in Halifax. This includes Dartmouth and Bedford, with which Halifax forms the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Location

Halifax lies on the south coast of Nova Scotia, a peninsula (and province) on the Canadian east coast. The Halifax Citadel (Fort George) lies on a hill high above the city. The center is wedged in between the Citadel Hill and the harbor. The peninsula is almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. No single town in Nova Scotia lies further than 56 kilometers from the coast.

Economy

Halifax is an important economical center for Canada's eastern provinces. The port is of great importance for the transit of products to and from the hinterland. Furthermore, Halifax is still an important military base. Construction also provides a considerable contribution to the local economy. In the past, not only new projects were realized, but also old and declining residential neighborhoods were restored. Sable Island gas fields are being further exploited, and close to Halifax are many fishing ports.

Airports

The modern international airport of Halifax (fully named Robert L. Stanfield International Airport) lies 35 kilometers north of the city. The airport is easily reachable by rental car via Highway 102, exit 6. The journey from the city center to the airport takes 30 to 40 minutes.

Public transportation

A free shuttle bus, Fred (Free Rides Everywhere Downtown) is available in the city center from July to October. Bus services to the suburbs and places in the area are limited. There are also ferries to Dartmouth and Woodside. For more information on public transportation in Halifax you can pick up a brochure at the Halifax International Tourism Visitor Center.

Traffic and parking

Halifax has excellent roads and you can comfortably explore the city by rental car. Finding a parking space in general is also no problem. The city is well connected with the rest of Canada: the highway 102 connects with the 104 (the Trans Canada Highway). Via this road you will reach the border at New Brunswick in about two hours.

Hotels

In general it's not difficult to find accommodation in Halifax. We do advise you to book your hotel room in advance over high season, because the best hotels and popular Bed & Breakfasts are then booked out quickly. At the Halifax International Visitor Center you can get information on available accommodation.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
