Top tips for renting a car in Hamilton

  • If you’re visiting Hamilton, why should you rent a car? First of all, nearby attractions like the Royal Botanical Gardens and Webster’s Falls are more easily reached by car. In addition, Saint Catharines, Mississauga and Toronto are all just a short drive from the airport; in other words, renting a car will enable you to visit a number of cities in Canada besides Hamilton.
  • Located in Mount Hope, Hamilton International Airport is not a very large facility. However, it offers everything that a larger airport provides including rental car services inside the terminal via several big companies such as Budget, National, and Avis. Consequently, many travelers opt to fly out of or into Hamilton in lieu of Toronto Pearson International Airport to avoid the hassle of crowds.
  • Downtown Hamilton is made up mostly of one-way streets which can be confusing for a tourist at first. If you are not going downtown, you can bypass city traffic by taking the Link. Conveniently, you can also dial 511 from your cell phone to learn about construction and traffic conditions before getting on the road.
  • Traffic is heaviest in Hamilton during commuting hours. This typically ranges from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the morning and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the evenings. Some of the busiest streets during peak hours are Main Street and Upper James Street as well as highway 401. If driving downtown, pedestrians can also cause traffic congestion.
