There is no better way to see everything Ottawa has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or wasting money here and there with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own ride enables you to go to the locations you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next getaway to Canada more enjoyable with a Hertz car rental.
With all there is to do and see in and around Ottawa, you'll want to explore more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your trip. Whether you have to try that latest bistro across town or try some of the best local favorites, you'll need your own set of wheels to explore as much as possible while on your trip. No matter what you have planned while in Ottawa, if you want to get the most from your trip to the city, having your own set of wheels is a must.
We work with some of the top businesses. Hertz has over 100 years of experience and a fleet including many of the most respected in the business, like Hyundai and Kia. With Hertz renowned history and thousands of distributors all over the world, you'll be well taken care of.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car in Ottawa is 20. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Hertz's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ottawa. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Ottawa getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure 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 book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Ottawa. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Hertz rental with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Hertz. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Ottawa certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Hertz typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Hertz. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Ottawa, having your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of Canada, you can go when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or figuring out a bus schedule.
