Tips for renting a car in Canada

Before booking car rental in Canada, it’s useful to consider what you plan to use the car for, how many passengers will be travelling and what luggage you need to carry. Canada is a vast country and driving distances can be huge, so you might want to consider a larger rental car in Canada than you are used to, one better equipped for longer journeys. Renting and SUV in Canada is a great option for groups and families, many of which can cater for up to 7 passengers with luggage and offer a comfortable ride for a long day on the road.

What's included with car rental in Canada?

You should also check what is included in your rental, most car rentals in Canada include insurance and taxes and our rates always include one-way fees. If you need any additional extras such as child seats, sat-nav or additional drivers, it’s worth comparing costs between rental agents as the cheapest rental agent may not offer the lowest total cost for your rental when you take optional extras into account. You shouldn’t need an international driving license when renting a car in Canada unless your domestic license is not printed in the roman alphabet. If you plan to take your rental car from Canada into the USA via any of the popular border crossings you should disclose your intentions to the rental agent on arrival so that the necessary documentation can be prepared.

Does car rental in Canada come with snow chains / winter tyres?

Depending on the time of year you are renting a car in Canada and where abouts in the country will determine if the rental car is supplied with winter tyres. Where legally required to drive on the road, winter tyres will be included free of charge with any rental car in Canada. Snow chains will be classed as an optional extra and can be included within your rental.
