Top tips for renting a car in Ottawa

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
