Cheap Car Rentals in Halifax

Find cheap car rental deals in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Happening Halifax is one of the most exciting places to visit in scenic Nova Scotia. It combines all the cultural attractions of a major city with the serene landscapes of Canada’s eastern coastline. You’ll find pockets of history in the modern city, such as in the Halifax Citadel, or when wandering the boardwalks of Fisherman’s Cove. The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, meanwhile, charts the city’s significance as a port. Rent a car through Orbitz to explore all of Halifax, from its sleek downtown district to the walking trails and views of Long Lake Provincial Park on the borders of the city.

Halifax and beyond: Visit vibrant villages

Halifax has all the glamour of a modern city, but drive your rental car just a short distance and you’ll discover a more traditional Nova Scotia. We’ve picked three charming towns and villages to visit.

Peggy’s Cove

One of the most popular destinations in Nova Scotia is Peggy’s Cove, an impossibly picturesque fishing village with wooden houses by the water, and an iconic lighthouse. Come here early to avoid the crowds, then drive a little further on to find the quieter but equally charming Terence Bay. Bring your camera for snaps of these old-world coastal beauties.

Journey time: Around 40 minutes

Distance: Approximately 25 miles


Drive a little further along Nova Scotia’s coastline to find the National Historic Site of Lunenburg. Colonial-era buildings, retaining their bright colors and historic aesthetic, fill the enchanting downtown district of Lunenburg, where the historic schooner Bluenose II bobs in the harbor. Sample life as a seaman in the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.

Journey time: Around one hour

Drink wine and mingle with academics in the laid-back town of Wolfville. The town is surrounded by vine-covered hills and the waters of the Bay of Fundy. Acadia University hosts some of the town’s oldest buildings, including the Randall House Historical Museum. Hikers can head out of the city to find the trails around scenic Cape Split.
