Kanata is just one of many neighborhoods in Ottawa that are worth exploring, and, you'll want your own ride to check out everything there is to do here. The city buses, while affordable, may not take you to right where you want to go. Ride hailing is convenient, but you may be surprised by how many cities don't have service. Plus, the cost of going from here to there can start to add up.
If you want the convenience to go where you need to at a fantastic rate, then you've found the best place. We work with several of the finest car rental dealers. Hertz has over 100 years of car rental experience and a fleet including some of the most popular in the business, like Ford and Nissan. With Hertz's impressive history and thousands of distributors globally, you will be well taken care of.
CarRentals.com always strives to get you the best deal. But, you can remember a few things to keep your next booking affordable:
A little knowledge can go a long way to lower your rate.
Make sure to present your credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Hertz's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Hertz's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kanata. If you are having a little trouble deciding, be sure to go over our chart below. We have compared the most popular vehicle categories for you:
|Car Type||Best for||Category includes|
|Luxury or Premium class||If you really want to treat yourself on your vacation to Kanata||Infiniti, Mercedes Benz, or similar|
|SUV or Minivan||If you plan on doing a lot of sightseeing and want a comfortable ride||Toyota Rav 4, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar|
|Compact Car||When saving money is a top priority||Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Spark, or similar|
When driving in Kanata or the rest of country, you will need insurance. Hertz requires that you show proof of insurance before you pick up your car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy temporary insurance with Hertz.
The major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) will usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger 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 travel to Ottawa.
Hertz, like many other rental car agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly based on the type of car. Furthermore, be sure there is enough available on your credit card to pay the deposit.
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the rental to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Many suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it is part of your package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip ahead of time. Although most rental car providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package, you could face additional cost. You may need unlimited miles if you're planning to see everything that is in Ottawa.
With everything there is to do in Ottawa, having access to a set of wheels lets you sightsee at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of Canada, you can go wherever you want, without trying to signal for a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
