Tips for renting a car in Montreal

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Montreal including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 11 April 2024.
  • Remember that all Canadian drivers must use child seats when operating a hired vehicle in Montreal with a youngster between the ages of 4 to 8. So, be sure to request a child seat when you hire a vehicle from your favorite car rental company in Montreal.
  • You can rent a car of your choice to travel to most of the cities in the Montreal region. The best choice might be to drive a small automobile or a luxurious sedan through the busy streets. For family holidays to adjacent places like Laval, Longueuil, or Saint-Lambert, which are just a short drive away, a larger vehicle, such as a double-cab pickup or SUV, provides enough space for storage plus seats.
  • Renting a car in Montreal requires a minimum age of 20. For riders under the age of 25, an additional underage fee is required. If you're under 20 and require a rental car for a legitimate military or government mission, the vast majority of Montreal car rental companies will allow you to rent their vehicles without charging you an additional fee.
  • Montreal experiences extreme weather conditions, including heavy snowfall in the winter. This can lead to road salt, potholes, and challenging driving conditions, especially during the colder months. If you are driving in these conditions, proceed as carefully as possible and limit your speed. You will want to not only keep your eyes on the road and be on the lookout for anything that may cause damage to your vehicle, but to also ensure that your rental is equipped to drive in such weather. Having winter tires and chains installed on your vehicle will prove to be essential.
  • There are a few things that you will want to keep in mind about the layout of the city. For example, Montreal is a bike-friendly city with designated bike lanes. Be aware of cyclists and pedestrians, especially in downtown and during warmer months when more people are out and about. In addition, Montreal's road layout can be confusing, with narrow streets, one-way roads, and complex intersections. Using a GPS or a navigation app can be very helpful in navigating the city.
  • When driving in Montreal, you may encounter some infrastructure you have not seen before. For example, road signs in Montreal are primarily in French, although important signs also have English translations. Familiarize yourself with common French road signs to navigate effectively. In addition, Montreal has numerous roundabouts. If you're not familiar with how to navigate them, it is best to learn the rules before driving in the region. Some bridges and tunnels in Montreal have tolls. Make sure to have the necessary change or a compatible electronic toll pass if you plan to use these routes.
