If you want to see everything Ottawa has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Dollar. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own vehicle enables you to go to the sites you want to see the most, when you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Canada even more enjoyable with a Dollar rental car.
With all there is to do and see in and around Ottawa, you'll be wanting to explore more than just your hotel room during your trip. Whether you have to check out that well-reviewed restaurant across town or check out some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own car to take in as much as you can during your getaway. Wherever you drive to in Ottawa, if you wish to get the most out of your visit, having your automobile is a must.
CarRentals.com works with several of the top car rental businesses in the industry. Dollar prides itself on fantastic customer service. Dollar's attention to its fleet of quality rentals and customer service is bolstered by their impressive vacation planning and business travel services.
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Ottawa is 21. Take time to read through Dollar's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Ottawa. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room for everyone's bags and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Ottawa getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or 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 purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Dollar rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Dollar. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Ottawa certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Ottawa.
Dollar offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Dollar. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Ottawa, having access to a car lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Canada, you can drive when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or looking through a bus schedule.
Before you head out of town, book your Dollar Ottawa rental car and zip off to take in all the must-do activities. Book through CarRentals.com and cruise the open road in Ottawa, Canada.
