KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kingston

  • Travellers who plan on taking day trips to any of the many natural features or nearby cities should consider booking car hire in Kingston. It takes just over an hour to get from Kingston to Prince Edward County, where you can visit a number of different wineries and vineyards. There are also a number of beautiful major parks in the area, including Frontenac Provincial Park, which is around 40 minutes from Kingston. You can also get to major cities including Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal within roughly three hours.
  • There are limited options if you want to book car hire in Kingston at Kingston Airport (YGK). Only Avis has an office at the airport. However, other car hire companies in Kingston may be able to meet you at the airport or arrange transportation to their offices downtown. Alternatively, Ottawa International Airport (YOW) is roughly 2 hours from Kingston. You'll find a much more varied range of companies here including Hertz, Avis and Enterprise. Most companies have their desks in the car park on Level 1.
  • If you're visiting Kingston during winter, you may encounter snow ploughs while exploring the city. Always leave at least three car lengths between your vehicle and the plough. Never drive beside or pass a plough. In addition to snow clearing, they also salt and sand roads in preparation for snowfall. If you're visiting with children, you'll need to ensure they're in an appropriate booster seat, if necessary. These are mandatory for children who are under eight years old or shorter than 145 cm. Remember, these rules may differ between provinces, for example, some require children to be at least nine years old.
  • If you're visiting Kingston during the winter months, consider downloading the Ontario 511 app to your phone. While it may come in handy at any point in the year, their up-to-date information on road conditions is especially useful during winter, when snow and ice may cause delays, closures, and difficult conditions. You'll need to make sure you get winter tyres as part of your booking for car hire in Kingston between December 1st and March 30th. You'll also want to keep an eye out for animals on the road if you're driving outside the city. If you encounter moose on the road, it's best to bring your vehicle to a stop far from the animal, and allow it to cross.
  • Book your rental car in Kingston at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Kingston are around -102% cheaper than other car types, on average

Smaller vehicles will be a good choice for travellers on a budget, and larger vehicles will be handy if you plan on transporting a lot of luggage and equipment. If you're visiting in winter, you may want to ensure that you book a front-wheel car drive, as these can often handle snow better than back-wheel drives.

There is a three-hour limit. The hourly rate at most other car parks is 1.50 CAD (roughly 0.90 GBP).

Pros:

Jeeps are fun to drive!

Cons:

the kiosk was at the train station but we had to wait for the guy to bring a car and then get our vehicle from the train station home for the duration of our trip. it added about an hour and a half to get it all sorted which put us behind on our eta. we reserved a small car but got the Jeep and while it was fun to drive oh my word the extra cost on gas was crazy :(
