Pick Up Instructions

The GyPSy tour guide kit is separate from your rental vehicle. It must be picked up and dropped off at the same time and same location as your Avis rental vehicle. For security reasons, an agreement must be signed and a valid credit card provided at the time of pick-up. Any damaged or missing kit components are the responsibility of the renter.

If picking up your rental vehicle at the Calgary Airport please first collect your GyPSy Guide at the Tourism Calgary Visitor Information desk located on the Arrivals Level. For Vancouver Airport collect your GyPSy Guide first from the British Columbia Visitor Centre located at the International Arrivals Level. The desk is well signed and available in the public area.
