Top tips for hiring a car in Toronto

  • Book in advance – book at least a month in advance to get the best prices on Toronto car hire, especially if there is a specific type of car you want to rent for your trip.
  • Plan your route – to avoid getting stuck in rush hour, and to ensure you don’t accidentally make any illegal manoeuvres, planning your journey using a GPS or apps like Waze and Google Maps is highly recommended.
  • Go compact or midsize – if you have two or fewer passengers and don’t have much luggage, we recommend hiring a compact or midsize car. Prices for hiring compact cars in Toronto are cheaper. You will also find it easier to park in the city centre than you would if you hire an SUV.
  • Go in the quieter season – car hire in Toronto is cheaper in November and March, these times of year are less busy with tourists, and you will get cheaper flights in these months too!
