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.

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.

Canada has two official languages, English and French. All sign posts and official documentation is produced in both languages. English is the primary language everywhere in Canada except the region of Quebec. When visiting Quebec it is usually fairly easy to get by with only English as your spoken language, almost every Canadian national is multilingual to some extent. Canadian English uses a combination of both British and American spellings, with local dialects introducing French words as slang. Canada is a country which is defined by very large distances. An area of outstanding natural beauty. These large distances make car hire as part of a vacation package a logical choice. In some areas there will be a need to equip the vehicle with special cold weather equipment.

The Atlantic Provinces focus very much around maritime culture, and are typified by traditional fishing villages and rich folk heritage. Quebec is the largely French speaking area of Canada, it displays both style and charm, lush farmland and quaint rural villages dot the landscape.
