Digby Car Rentals - Ferry Terminal

I have family in Clare, and to take my car across the ferry it will cost $249... I figure if I walk on ($63) perhaps I could grab a car rental in Digby. Does such a company exist? Do they offer pickup/drop off service at the ferry terminal? Would like rent cheapest car.

By the way, I did some research, this ferry is one of the most expensive ferries in North America!

I just did some online searching. There seems to be an Enterprise location fairly close to Digby though it is not in the online telephone directory. The directory has the nearest car rental in Middleton which it too far away.

Yes the ferry is expensive and I believe it is losing money.

There is a car rental located at the GM dealership, Ellis Chevrolet. It is a fair distance from the ferry terminal (by that, I mean you wouldn't want to walk it). I believe it is the Enterprise one mentioned by maryann-ns. I don't know if they offer pick up/drop off or not, but if not, there are always taxis available at the terminal. enterpriserentacar.ca/car_rental/…

And yes, the ferry is extremely costly! We were always in favor of taking it,but we have ruled it out for travels this year. They used to offer a nice discount for certain crossings, but they have discontinued that, but continue to offer a small round trip discount.

Bad news... the car rental is closed on Saturday & Sunday! Checking rates... looks like average per day rental is $20. So approx $75.00 for Friday afternoon to Monday morning.

Check out "Kathleen's Shuttle & Tours". She's from the Digby area & might possibly pick you up at the ferry & take you to Clare. It would be worth a try.

I can't believe that a car rental would be closed on the W/E!

Good luck. This is such a lightly populated area of the province that public transportation and other options are few.
