Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Canada, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 21 Juni 2024.
  • What are the requirements to hire a car in Canada?

    With cheap car hire in Canada, you will find the documentation needed may differ slightly from the rest of the world. Firstly, a valid international driver’s licence will need to be presented alongside your original driver’s licence. The car hire company will very likely look up your driving record, to ensure you have no outstanding traffic violations, too. You will, of course, need to have a credit card that the company accepts, with enough credit for your trip and insurance. Car hire in Canada also requires photographic identification, such as a passport, and insurance on the car. Insurance could either come standard with the hire or be covered by your credit card.

  • What are the rules for driving in Canada?

    Hire cars in Canada will allow you to see this great country with autonomy and freedom. Get ready for your adventure by brushing up on a few rules of the road before you get behind the wheel. Car hire in Canada will require you to drive on the right-hand side of the road, unlike the UK’s left. Canadian car hire will be designed with this in mind, so spend some time getting used to the feeling of driving on this side. Do not drink and drive in Canada; the blood alcohol limit is 0.08, with a zero-tolerance policy for overindulgence. Pedestrians have right of way in all circumstances, and every occupant of the vehicle is required to wear a seatbelt at all times, with babies needing car seats. Do not use your phone when driving, except with a hands-free kit; follow the speed limit; be patient and courteous and you should have no hassles with hire cars in Canada.

Cheap car hire is available for everything, from electric car hire, economy car hire, 4x4s to luxury cars and much more. Canada’s roads are world class, with cities being perfect for economy or passenger cars. If you are planning on taking a trip to the mountains or plan on seeing some snow, consider a 4x4 vehicle that can handle the steep inclines and slippery roads. Car hire in Canada will also offer snow chains for wheels and certain tools to ensure you are looked after on your journey.
