Location Information

When you step out of baggage claim at Sydney/JA Douglas McCurdy Airport, make your first stop the Avis Car Rental counter for all of your YQY car rental needs. Avis offers a complete line of Sydney airport car rentals, so whether you’re in Nova Scotia for business or pleasure, you’re sure to find the right deal on the right rental vehicle. What’s more, you can accelerate your travel experience with Avis Preferred, a complimentary membership that allows you to skip the line and go straight to your car.

The city’s business center is a 20-minute drive from the Avis lot of Sydney/JA Douglas McCurdy Airport rental cars. And even in the heart of downtown, you’ll find the eclectic cultural mix of Gaelic, Mi’kmaq and Acadian influences that make it a unique seaport city.

The most notable landmark in Sydney is The Big Fiddle. Just as the name suggests, it’s the world’s largest fiddle, located right outside the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion. If you have time on your lunch break, it’s a must-see, if only to cross it off your bucket list.

No matter what else you have planned here, the great deals on airport car rentals from Avis will have you enjoying it all in comfort, style and ease.
