Tips for renting a car in Toronto

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Toronto including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 11 April 2024.
  • Keep in mind that every Canadian driver must use safety child seats when operating a leased vehicle in Toronto in the company of a child between the ages of 4 and 8. So, anytime you hire a car in Toronto from your chosen rental company, be sure to request a baby seat.
  • You can rent a car of your choice to get around most of the cities in the Toronto metropolitan area. The greatest solution might be to drive a premium sedan or a tiny automobile through the busy streets. An SUV or double-cab pickup with plenty of storage space and seating is ideal for family outings to neighboring cities, like Etobicoke, Scarborough, or Vaughan, located only a short distance away.
  • To rent a car in Toronto, you must be at least 20 years old. Renters under the age of twenty-five are subject to an additional underage fee. If you're under 20 and require a rental car for a legitimate military or even governmental obligation, the vast majority of Toronto rental businesses can let you use their automobiles without assessing you an additional fee.
  • Toronto experiences its share of winter weather challenges, including snowfall and icy roads. To ensure a safe driving experience during these months, it's important to have winter tires fitted on your vehicle for better grip and handling. Be particularly cautious of black ice, which often forms on bridges, overpasses, and shaded areas of the road. The city uses road salt to manage ice, which can lead to the development of potholes, so watch out for these hazards to avoid damaging your car. During snowstorms, reduce your speed, keep your headlights on for better visibility, and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. These precautions are essential for safe winter driving in Toronto.
  • Toronto is a bustling metropolis with a mix of modern and historic roadways. The city features several expressways like the Gardiner Expressway and the Don Valley Parkway, which can get quite congested, especially during rush hours. Plan your route to avoid peak traffic times. The downtown area is filled with one-way streets and limited parking spaces, so consider using public parking lots. Toronto is also cyclist-friendly, with dedicated bike lanes. Stay alert for cyclists and pedestrians, especially downtown and during summer months. A GPS or navigation app is highly recommended to help you find your way through the city.
  • Familiarize yourself with local driving rules and etiquette. Toronto has strict regulations regarding stopping for streetcars. When a streetcar stops and opens its doors, traffic in both directions must stop until the doors close and it begins moving again. This rule is strictly enforced for the safety of passengers. Also, be aware of the "no right on red" rule in certain downtown intersections. Pay attention to parking regulations – illegal parking can lead to hefty fines. Lastly, while Toronto doesn't have many toll roads, Highway 407 ETR is a toll route, so be prepared if you plan to use it.
