Top tips for renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador

  • When choosing a reliable car brand for exploring Newfoundland and Labrador, a few options stand out. The first is Toyota, known for its durability and performance. Whether you're navigating the rugged terrains or embarking on long drives, Toyota cars are built to handle the demands of the region. Another reliable choice is Subaru, with its all-wheel-drive system that's perfect for tackling variable weather conditions.

  • Since Newfoundland and Labrador is an island province, there aren't any nearby countries you can cross over into. There are, however, a couple of nearby cities, like Quebec, Nova Scotia, or New Brunswick. If you're hoping to cross over into these cities, you'll need to confirm with the car hire agency, but you don't need any additional documentation. Consider getting more comprehensive insurance, in case there's an accident in another part of the country.
