car rental quebec city

Does anyone know if we can rent a car at the airport and then return it somewhere downtown because we leave on our cruise from downtown 2 days later and don't want to go back out to the airport

I guess the first question is why do you need to rent a car? If staying in Quebec City before your cruise it is very easy to get around without one, unless you intend to travel outside the area.

Yes, we have been to the city before and loved the Charlesvoix region so want to drive up there on our first day. Second day we board ship for cruise so want to return the car downtown and not go back to airport

Thanks

You will be traveling the area by the waters anyway so...

Don't know how close the cruise ships can get to Montmorency Falls but with only two days in town I would not even suggest that you get there.

Rent a place in the Old City (Vieux-Québec) or close in either Upper or Lower Towns and you will have plenty to do on foot. Well may be with the very few times when you will be too tired to get again from Lower to Upper Town walking the steep cliff you can just take the funicular or the Ecolobus.

Play it safe, take a taxi into Quebec City and rent from either Avis or Enterprise which are both on Boulevard Rene Levesque. That way you are insured that you can return it to the city before you board your cruise.
