Rental cars available in main terminal from all major agencies. Service at Nalair was great for us visiting from USA in Aug 2007. We did buy 100LL and parking fees were conveniently forgotten on our 3 nights parking. Parking is limited on the ramp and there are no tiedown ropes. Nice FBO building with Pilot lounge and briefing room.

Aug. 18, 2011, we visited the west coast of Nfld from Deer Lake. Compare prices and mileage between car rental agencies at the airport, there was a big difference. We rented from National and found they were very flexible on terms. Agree with comments about FBO. Found car rental staff extremely helpful. Also, tourism staff at desk at airport will help you find accommodation
