Tips for renting a car in Kitchener

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Kitchener including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 25 February 2024.
  • The province of Ontario, including the city of Kitchener, experiences a range of weather conditions, including snowfall in the winter. During winter months, road conditions may become slippery, and snow removal efforts are essential. Drivers should exercise caution and be prepared for winter driving conditions. It is also important to make sure that your vehicle is properly equipped to drive in these conditions and has both winter tires and chains. You may want to opt for a larger vehicle with two or four-wheel drive in order to be particularly safe.
  • There are a few things that you will want to keep in mind about the city. For example, Kitchener has become increasingly more bike-friendly, and there are areas with designated bike lanes. Be aware of cyclists and pedestrians, especially in downtown and residential areas. During the warmer months, such as in the spring and summer, these areas tend to be particularly busy, so you will want to limit your speed and keep your eyes open. If driving in the downtown area, be aware of one-way streets, pedestrian zones, and parking restrictions. Follow the posted signage and watch for pedestrians.
  • Like many growing cities, Kitchener often has ongoing construction projects that can affect traffic flow. Stay informed about construction zones, follow signage, and exercise caution in work areas. Construction zones may impact traffic flow, and road closures or detours can occur. Follow posted signs and drive cautiously in construction areas. If possible, you may want to plan your driving route in a way that allows you to avoid these areas altogether in order to prevent delays.
