Top tips for renting a car in Canada

  • Renting a car in Canada offers the best flexibility when exploring the country, and it can also be the quickest way to travel, second only to flying. Freight train traffic takes priority in Canada, so traveling by train can often come with delays. Traveling by bus is an option, but routes often leave some flexibility to be desired, especially if you want to travel to mountainous regions.
  • While the weather in Canada can vary greatly depending on which part of whatever province you plan to travel in, the winters all over Canada are long and snowy. If you’re planning on renting a car in the Canadian winter, you’d be better off with a four-wheel drive vehicle to navigate snowy roads and the more remote areas of the country.
  • If you’re traveling with a child under 40 lb, be advised that they’ll need to be secured in a car seat, whether you’re in a taxi or in the car you rented. This rule includes airport pickups, so be sure to either arrive in Canada with your own Canada-approved car seat or add one on to your rental car reservation through your chosen rental car company.
  • If you’re planning on crossing the border to the US with a car you rent in Canada, you can expect to do so without issue. You’ll simply need to gain permission from the rental car company and make sure that the provided insurance is sufficient for both countries’ requirements to cross. As with any border crossing, you’ll need to have your passport or visa on hand to show the border agents.
