Top tips for renting a car at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport
A car rental at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport is convenient because it's right at the airport. You can also take a shuttle bus to get to your car rental company's location at Pearson Intl Airport, which is great for those traveling on foot or with heavy luggage. This is especially important because it will be difficult for limousine and taxi drivers to drop off passengers outside of the car rental companies in the parking lot.
The most common vehicles available at Toronto Pearson Intl Airport’s car rental center include SUVs, compacts, sedans and hatchbacks. If you're traveling to Toronto with children or pets, an SUV may be better for the additional storage room in the back as well as its seating capacity. On the other hand, a more compact size might be easier to maneuver in and out of the tight parking spaces synonymous with the town.

The company will have someone meet you right outside the terminal when you arrive so that they can swap out keys with you and give instructions on where to leave your vehicle.
