There is no better way to see everything Ottawa has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Avis rental car. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. When you have the keys to your own ride, you can go anywhere you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to Canada even more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With everything to do in and around Ottawa, you'll want to explore more than the area surrounding your hotel while on your stay. Whether you have to have dinner at the cafe that has received rave reviews across town or check out some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own vehicle to explore as much as possible during your trip. Wherever you drive to in Ottawa, if you want to get the most from your trip Canada, having access to your auto is a must.
CarRentals.com works with some of the finest businesses in the world. The first rent-a-car business located in an airport, Avis has over 70 years of providing rentals to visitors from all over. With a diverse fleet of autos and over 5,000 locations worldwide, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from beginning to end.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Ottawa is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Avis's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ottawa. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Ottawa vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Canada. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ottawa. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis.
Ottawa definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Ottawa, having your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Canada, you can drive when you want to, without having to coordinate ride-hailing services or wait for the bus.
Before your next family vacation, book your Avis Ottawa rental car and visit all the must-see sights at your own pace. Reserve with CarRentals.com and hit the road in Ottawa, Canada.
