KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Ottawa

  • Drivers planning to move around the city with cheap car rentals in Ottawa should be aware of the toll roads. Ottawa has one major toll road, 407 ETR, that you should know before hitting the road for an adventure. This road has to be paid for before being used for adventure. Therefore, most car rental companies in Ottawa do not cater to the road charges; instead, they ask the drivers to pay using their own money. The payment can only be done through the toll booth before getting on the road. You can pay using the Fastrac method, by check, cash, online banking, or pay-by-plate.
  • When driving your cheap car rentals in Ottawa, think about keeping the back seat for your kids for it is a safe place for them to be in a moving vehicle. The limitations on kid safety seats should be understood by parents who rent cars in Ottawa. When driving around the city, children between the ages of 4 and 5 must be buckled into one of these seats. So, make sure to ask for and receive the child seat when making a car reservation with your preferred car agency. All Ottawa car rentals provide child-safety seats. While using these seats, you will need to pay a daily fee.
  • Use cheap car rentals in Ottawa to connect to different locations in the city with more flexibility. Renters must be 21 years of age or older to use any of the Ottawa car rentals. However, in some car rental agencies, you should be 25 years or older to rent a luxury vehicle. You must have two documents with you while picking up your car. One of the fundamental documents required is a driver's license that is valid for the full rental duration. A credit card or debit card bearing your name is the second required documentation that would facilitate the payment process.
  • Canada’s capital is an evergreen city that is overflowing with spectacular parks and gardens. Ottawa is located along the Ottawa River and is connected to the Rideau Canal, providing extensive opportunities to get outside and enjoy the wonders of nature. Renting a car will give you unrivaled access to the glorious hiking trails of Gatineau Park while also allowing the time to take in the significant cultural arts attractions, such as the National Gallery and Canadian Museum of History. If you are planning to attend an Ottawa Senators ice hockey match, renting a car is the best option since Canadian Tire Center is more than 25 km (15 miles) from the downtown district.
  • Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport (YOW) is located approximately 11 km (7 miles) from downtown and you will be able to arrive in just over 20 minutes of driving. Rental companies Alamo, Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise have their counters located on Level 1 of the parking facility, directly across from the baggage claim area.
  • Since the expanse of parklands and outdoor activities lends Ottawa to be an optimal location for bike riding, so be vigilant while driving and remember to check blind spots regularly. Turning right at a red light is legal in Ottawa unless otherwise indicated by signage; however, always remember to stop at the intersection and ensure the road is clear.
  • Ottawa and the surrounding areas of Ontario are well known for the heavy amounts of snowfall they often get during the winter. If you are planning to travel during this time of the year you will witness some beautiful frozen lakes and scenery; however, be extra cautious while driving. It is important to regularly check weather reports which will provide information on road conditions and safety. When driving on icy roads, remember to reduce speeds and allow more braking time and space than you would in normal conditions.

Cons:

Despite booking an intermediate on Kayak, the Avis received my booking as a compact. Thankfully, Avis found an intermediate car for me at a nearby location for no extra charge, which I appreciated. Seems like a miscommunication between the Kayak and Avis systems.

6.8 Okay

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

We received quite a larger vehicle than booked as the type of vehicle we had booked was not available so I think the vehicle should have been the correct size. Also, the vehicle had Florida license plates and being in Canada and driving, because of the travel restrictions and people’s heightened stress, we didn’t feel comfortable driving in Canada with the Florida plates under Covid.

I booked a dodge challenger but given a ford escape. The ford interior had not been vacuumed and had dirt and food debris in the console/gear shift. The exterior of the vehicle had not been washed and the windshield was covered with dead bugs. However, the drop-off at Toronto Pearson Airport was smooth and efficient

Very flexible. My flight was delayed by 12 hours and they held my vehicle. Thank you.

4.8 Mediocre

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Noone was there when I dropped the car off. I found papertowel (used) in the car. Not acceptable at all given this is a Covid pandemic. I was told after I had booked the car that Costco members get a discount. The agents never really tell you about any features or benefits. When I showed up the woman was not there so I had to wait for her.

Pros:

Nothing but the initial price of the car itself.

Cons:

Customer service, after hour return policy, initial and final inspection accuracy, insurance plans, ease of finding the rental place, and so many more.

Pros:

I had asked for an economy car but I was told that none were available despite the fact that I had booked economy.

Cons:

They should go outside with the customer to do an inspection of the car and to explain the features of the car.

It was the worst experience in my whole life. They keep charging me for unreasonable amount for no reasons and even when I gave back the car they kept charging me. That have my card number informations but they do t have the right to take money on my cards. My location was supposed to cost me 90$ and it end up costing me 230$. Absolutely unacceptable

We had to insist on checking the car conditions in our presence at drop off like we did for pickup. Else the practice is to do it later on and send the observations to the customer by emails.

Kayak's description AND the confirmation both say that the Europcar location is in the Ottawa airport, but this is a total lie. It is FAR away and requires travelers to call for a shuttle, which takes 15 minutes to get there. I waited outside in freezing Ottawa for a van to take me another 15 minutes away to a ROUTES(!!!) rental location. I SPECIFICALLY didn't want a Routes car because they suck as a rental agency. I then had to sign a million pieces of paper like it was 1985 and waited an obscene amount of time in an ugly rental agency. I consider this entire experience to be a scam due to the false advertising. To add insult to injury, there was a no refund/no cancelation policy. I feel duped by Kayak and this rental agency. I will literally never rent a car from Europcar or Routes in my life again. I would rather Uber everywhere even if it cost 50 times more than the price of a rental.
