Canada car hire information

In 2019 in Canada, a new law was brought into effect banning the use of all electronic devices while driving. This includes mobile phones, tablets, and navigation systems unless they can function with voice commands alone. We recommend that travellers who are interested in rental cars when visiting Canada buy and use paper maps instead of technology. The law was brought in to reduce accidents occurring due to drivers looking at technology instead of the road. Failure to comply with the law could result in a fine from traffic police. Another law unique to Canada and of interest to travellers using rental cars is that yellow speed signs are recommended speeds. This does not mean that you can completely ignore them, as the traffic police could still stop you and fine you for dangerous driving. Still, the recommendations are made based on the road conditions, the potential for disruptive weather and in the interest of keeping traffic to a minimum. The speed depends on the road situation, and this law was brought in to try and reduce traffic jams caused by frequent braking and also in areas where there are frequent accidents due to dangerous driving. We advise you to follow the speed recommendations closely.

The rules around car hire in Canada are quite simple. You are required to provide a valid driving licence, which, if it's not in English or French, should be accompanied by an International Driver’s Permit. You must use a credit card to put a deposit on the rental cars, and debit cards are not accepted. The name on the credit card must match that of the primary driver. In Canada, car hire is only available if you are over 21, and adults between 21 and 24 will often have to pay a premium surcharge. Insurance is not required on rental cars, but there are normally more advanced options to cover injury, death, responsibility, theft, and loss of belongings, which will cost varying amounts depending on the car hire company.

Vancouver has the highest traffic volume in Canada, with a congestion rate of 39%, which means that traffic moves 39% slower than if the roads were free-flowing. The roads are busy for the morning rush, but the worst-hit time of day is the afternoon rush hour when citizens leave work. Toronto is the second-highest in Canada for traffic, as it has a congestion rate of 33%. If you plan to rent a car in Canada or while visiting Vancouver or Toronto, you may want to consider paying for secure parking, as break-ins can occur. It may also be easier to use the public transport networks when travelling around the centre of these cities, such as the buses, trams, and trains, which are generally affordable and efficient.

Canada is a picturesque country to visit if you are interested in taking a road trip with your car rental. We recommend the Pacific Rim Highway, which runs westward from Parksville to Tofino, on Vancouver Island, and only takes few hours to complete. It has plenty of places to stop while you drive through the mountains and forests and end up at the beach. We recommend stopping at Cameron Lake and Port Alberni, where you can visit the local shops and grab a bite to eat. Another great option for a road trip is the Icefields Parkway, which also takes few hours to complete and runs from Banff National Park to Jasper National Park. It takes you through the Rocky Mountains and passes lakes, waterfalls and the Columbia icefield, finishing up in Jasper.
