Top tips for renting a car in Ontario

  • As with the whole of Canada, drink-driving is taken very seriously in Ontario. If you are found to have more than 0.08% blood alcohol content in your system, you will be prosecuted accordingly. This normally means a fine and suspension. However, depending on the circumstances, this could also mean imprisonment. You should never consume alcohol in the build-up to driving.
  • Should you be travelling with children, you’ll need to abide by the child safety laws in the region. For instance, all kids under the age of 16 must wear a seat belt. Those that are younger than eight years of age will need to be in a child seat or a booster seat. If your children are not securely fastened during the journey, you can be charged under the Highway Traffic Act.
  • If you want to use your car hire in Ontario to cross into the U.S., you must ensure that your car hire agency permits this. You will also need written permission to pass the border. If you do not have this, then your insurance will become void, and you will also face issues driving into the U.S. Another consideration you should have is that you will need a specific type of visa for this country.
  • It’s worth noting that Ontario can get very rural at times, which means there will be less petrol stations about. If you are planning a trip into the countryside, especially in the north of the region, then you should ensure that you are fuelled up for your journey. You will find most petrol stations in major cities, such as Toronto, or main roads such as motorways.

  • Should I hire a car in Ontario?

    Hiring a car in Ontario is highly advised. A hire car allows you to explore at any given time, whilst you’re also able to reach more remote locations, which isn’t something that’s always possible with public transport. Ontario is renowned for its beautiful landscape, which is something you’ll be able to explore more of if you have a hire car. A hire car makes it possible to reach a range of stunning locations, such as Niagara Falls, Lake Superior and Polar Bear Provincial Park. It also enables you to visit a range of beautiful towns and villages that buses or trains don’t regularly go to.

  • What is driving like in Ontario?

    Driving in Ontario is a pleasant experience, with the roads being high quality and drivers being relatively considerate. Most roads are wide and spacious, giving you lots of room to manoeuvre your vehicle. Most locations are well-signposted, too, so you’ll be able to reach your destination with ease. In some of the more rural areas, you might find that the roads are narrow. On these roads, you should drive more cautiously, in case a vehicle is coming from the other direction. In Ontario, you must drive on the right-hand side of the road, which is the opposite of the U.K.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Ontario?

    You normally need to be at least 21 years of age to hire a car in Ontario. There are a few agencies that will require you to be older than this, so it’s recommended that you contact your agency just to be sure. If you are younger than 25 years of age, you will probably need to pay a young person’s surcharge for your hire period, whilst there are also normally age restrictions on certain vehicle types. You will need a full driving licence and valid form of ID to hire a car in this region.
