Car rental insurance in Ontario

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Ontario car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Ontario.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Ontario car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Ontario

  • Like most cities in Canada, Ontario is designed for private vehicles. This means visitors to the city will be much better off renting a car than relying on public transportation to get around. This is especially the case if you plan to visit one of the state or national parks neighboring the city, like San Bernardino National Forest, which is just 56 miles away and would be nearly unreachable without a car at your disposal.
  • If you are like most travelers renting a car, the first step of your journey post-flight is to pick up your rental car. For those landing at Ontario International Airport, you can reach the airport’s rental car center by taking one of the 24/7 shuttle buses departing from outside of the main terminal.
  • The hills and mountains around Ontario are some of the natural highlights of any trip to the city, but what happens when you are on a narrow mountain road, you meet another car, and neither of you can pass by each other? In cases like this, as uncommon as they may be, the vehicle that is facing downhill must yield to the uphill facing driver and back up to make room for the other car. The reason for this is that the downhill-facing car has (at least theoretically) greater control and maneuverability.
  • Ontario, similar to much of California, faces a bit of a daily rush hour during the work week. The morning rush hour can be expected to pick up around 7:00 a.m. and lasts until 8:30 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour lasts from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, the rush hour traffic is actually quite mild, so visitors and commuters alike won’t have much to worry about.

  • Truly any size of vehicle is perfectly appropriate for driving in Ontario. The roads are large and wide and the parking is well-sized, so even large trucks and SUVs will have no issues parking. One thing to consider, though, is whether or not you plan on visiting other areas of California after your time in Ontario.

  • Drivers can expect residential speed limits in Ontario to range from 25 to 35 mph, while outside of the city the speed limit jumps up to 50 mph and even up to 65 mph on rural motorways. On highways and interstates, the speed limit is between 65 and 70 mph.

  • Gas prices in Ontario at $3 per gallon are a bit higher than the national average. However, for California and for much of the West Coast, they are actually fairly standard examples, seeing as San Diego’s average price per gallon is $3.10 and Seattle’s average is $3.

  • Drivers should have no issues finding immediate streetside parking near the sights in Ontario. Parking is very available and all sizes of vehicles will have no problems finding space to park. There are also a number of parking garages in the more densely packed sections of town.
